    Protects your keyboard

    • Written by from Costa Mesa

    I just received this product today in the mail. It fits on perfectly (its very thin too), you can't even see it (my bf didn't even know it was on); however, there is a little spacing above the function keys. It also gives my keyboard a little glossier look. As for typing with the moshi clearguard on, it feels squishier and you have to push down a little more. I also let it sit on my laptop for a while with the screensaver on and when I came back, it felt a little warmer on top (I'll be testing it more to see if it makes my macbook warmer). Overall, it will definitely prevent oil, dirt, crumbs, ect. on getting on/in between your keys. It is a good buy, but I wish the price was a little less.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from Orefield

    I got this cover to protect my MacBook Pro from finger grease and dirt . . . after owning my MacBook Pro for just over a year, I've noticed that the black keys really start to show these "circles" on the keys where there is finger contact, and I'm guessing it's the cumulative result of the gunk from my fingers slowly building up on the keys. (Do note that I am a very clean person and don't type if my hands are really gross, I guess a certain degree of grease and dirt is just unavoidable.)

    I've been using the cover for a few days now, and it seems to be working really well. I like how it silences the keys and makes me feel like I'm being more gentle on the spring mechanism that creates key travel. However, the cover does have a slight "stickiness" to it, and little crumbs and cat hair (I have 3 cats) really seem to stick to it, even though I am not a slob when typing. It also kind of sticks to the screen and makes a weird *skusch* noise every time I open the MacBook.

    Other than those minor complaints, overall the product is great. I'm really happy with the cover, and would recommend it if you're looking to protect your keys!

    Just got this.

    • Written by from Tucson

    I just bought my 13" macbook pro two days ago and i want to make sure i have everything on it protected. I bought the key board cover being a little skeptical. It fits great but it does feel weird when you're typing. I feel like there is a teeny tiny space between the cover and the keyboard keys. But the cover itself is VERY thin. If you're looking to protect your mac, I would get it, if you don't mind trying to get use to the feeling of the keys and stuff.

    Works fine - not for fast typers

    • Written by from Sylva

    Just got this for my 13" macbook pro. Fits wonderfully, can't tell its there by looking at it and is ideal if you're just playing music or browsing the internet, but I have found that it is not ideal for typing for any sort of length (I even took it off to type this review). Probably not ideal for people who type in excess of 70-80wpm. I fully intend to keep and use it when I'm casually using my computer such as streaming videos or playing music.

    good protection, but....

    • Written by from Sylvania

    It's very thin and it's easy to type with it in place. It definitely has a different feel when you type, but after a couple of uses, I barely even notice it. I ordered this with my brand new mac book. It was put on before I did anything else. I say this because it became cloudy within 1-2 weeks, and oddly enough when I tried to clean it, most of the cloudiness was on the surface that contacted the keys, not from my hands. It frequently clouds up, which is annoying, especially since it is difficult to get clean. Overall, considering how unobtrusive it is, it's worth the annoyance for the added protection.

    Straight forward review unlike Mac Fan boy review (always positive)

    • Written by from Anaheim

    Pros - Prevents dust and spills on keyboard

    Cons - visible!, gets shady(foggy) over time

    This protector is great if you want to protect your keyboard from dusts and spills. Don't listen to those who say "It's invisible." All load of BS. YES YOU CAN TELL IT'S APPLIED ON. I rather have it off because the keyboard looks better but I'm always a messy person so I leave it on. And over time it does get shady, water DOE NOT clean it back to new condition. The shadyness will still be there. Other than that it still lets you type perfectly, although it does move a little bit.

    Clear, easy to use, fits keyboard perfectly

    • Written by from Bogor

    This is my second keyboard protector, my first one was useless because it's too thick, very hard to use. I can say I'm happy with this product because I can type easily as if I don't use the protector (yes, it needs adjustment at the first time, give it around one week to get used of it) and it fits the keyboard perfectly (that's the best I think). One question is: can I just let it stay at my keyboard when I close the laptop? Because I heard a lot of advices not to do so, it will give spot to the screen. Pls share your experience. Thanks!

    Works great but wears quick

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I love this product! it's thin, responsive, doesnt move, and feels normal. My only dislike is that it wears through really quickly.
    I use my macbook pro for about 3 hours a day and have had this cover for about 3 months. It keeps my keyboard clean but is almost warn through on a couple of the keys. I would definitely recommend it but I will be ordering a new one right away

    Moshi ClearGuard Keyboard Protector for Aluminum MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Surrey

    Great for protecting keyboard from any spills or stains from dirty or greasy fingers. At first it's a little awkward to type using it, but you get use to it after a little while. Only downside is that it seems to be blocking the speaker, which isn't a major problem. It doesn't block a great amount of sound. I would prefer my keyboard being protected over the sound not coming through completely.

    A bit dissapointed

    • Written by from Bucharest

    After almost two months of extensive use on my MacBook Pro 13 Unibody (used it mainly for programming during this period) these are the problems I found :
    - grease and dirt will stick to it, and get transfered on the screen when closing the laptop but i bought a ScreenGuardz or whatever is called (the special cloth from RadTech), and fixed that
    - now a rather important problem : after a month or so of typing rather frequently, the protector started to bend right beneath the space bar, leaving a huge gap for dust to get inside
    It was a great product in the first month, but now, it just refuses to cover the space bar correctly.

    Very useful

    • Written by from Keller

    The cover is very thin as they describe. You can feel a difference in the texture when you type - the keys are hard plastic whereas the cover gives them more of a cushion - but overall it really doesn't change the feel of typing much at all. It fits the keyboard pretty much perfectly, although some of the key "holes" are a little off, so you just have to fold that part over to get the cover to fit smoothly on top. The only real issue would be if you absolutely love matte black color of the keys. The cover is slightly opaque so it turns the keys more grey, but the brighter you have to keyboard back light on, the less noticeable it is. Even without the light, it really doesn't make any difference unless, like I said, you are in love with the black.

    Works Good.

    • Written by from Evanston

    I have used KB covers in the past and this brand seems much thinner. This is better, because it doesn't slow down my typing. I can type about 30 to 40 words per minute without any problems. I don't know why others say the cover moves when typing or sticks to their fingers, but then again it's something that may change with different hands.

    I should also point out I'm using an early 2011 MBP 13", and the moshi cover was bought around the same time.

    The only con I've noticed is that with the increased thickness the oils, and dirt caught by the cover are then put on the screen unless you put a microfiber cloth on top when you close the laptop. Although, I imagine this would be the case with any cover seeing as Apple machines these units with extreme precision and without the addition of third party accessories.

    It has already saved my laptop about 3 times from water damage so I reckon it's paid for itself several times over.

    Does its job

    • Written by from Thornhill

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I was reading a lot of the reviews before I decided to purchase it. I was turned off by the price at first, but it does what it's supposed to do, which is protect your keys from oily fingers, and allows you to still experience the tactile feel of the keys as if there wasn't a cover on top. I wouldn't say this protects from spills entirely but it's good if you accidentally get a drop on your keyboard. I didn't give it a 5 star rating only because it feels a little loose over the keys overall. When I type the outer edges move a bit.

    using on silver keys...

    • Written by from CASTLETON

    I don't understand the person from Texas who says it's no good on silver keys. I've used mine for quite a while now and it works beautifully. I would suggest disregarding that comment.

    Fits perfect in ALL the macbook keyboards!

    • Written by from McAllen

    I bought this item for my MacBook Pro, as it turns out, I tried it on my wife's black macbook. I know that it is exactly the same keyboard but the sales rep in the apple store weren't sure if it would fit or not. Anyway I am glad to inform that it fits perfectly fine in older macbook black or white line. BTW I never rate items more than 5 stars unless they are extremely impressive at an extremely low price. This item does what it is supposed to and nothing more and the price is moderately high.

    It's a little squishy when you type, but it is something you can easily get used to. I would recommend it. You can hardly see it, so that is a bonus.

    Expecting More But Worth Purchasing

    • Written by from Taunton

    The keyboard protector is nice and thin compared to its counterparts and it does a good job at keeping debris out of my keyboard. The fit however isn't exactly as customized as I thought it would be. There is extra space around the F keys and the bottom edge should have been cut a tiny bit more so that it won't roll up if you slide your hands up to the keyboard wrong. Also the way it sits towards the edges isn't completely flush with the aluminum around the keys. So if you type too fast, you will sometimes get the feeling that you might pull up the protector as you type. The protector gets dirty pretty quickly, seems to be a magnet for bits of lint and dog hair, but interferes minimally with typing. All in all I'm glad I purchased it but was expecting a bit more.

    The best yet

    • Written by from Richmond

    I got this keyboard protector two weeks after buying the laptop because I noticed how my keys were getting dirty and wearing out. This is truly a good product to protect your keyboard. It gets dirty from the oil of your hand and may leave marks on the screen but it is barely noticeable. Getting it dirty is better than having your keyboard worn out after much usage. Good investment! One of the perks is it makes typing so much softer, especially when you're typing away in the library or in the room with someone.

    The keyboard guard is nice and clear and easy to type on. Worth the money spent. One thing I don't like about it is that they don't have it in different colors
