    Best Keyboard cover

    • Written by from whitesboro

    Pros
    -practically invisible
    -feels great
    -very thing, you won't notice it's on after a while
    -provides great protection against spills and dust

    Cons
    -kinda pricey for a piece of plastic but worth every penny, its the only one of its kinds out there right now. Others are made of super thick silicone.

    -as it gets dirty, the more opaque it gets. So i decided to clean it with soap and water...BAD IDEA. the opaqueness got worse. So the solution is to rinse it GENTLY with water. DO NOT CRUMPLE IT UP AND SCRUB the wrinkles will be permanent. use a QTIP to clean it instead. And last but not the least go over it with a little bit of baby oil just to get it all clear and shiny again =)

    The BEST keyboard skin ...

    • Written by from SAVANNAH

    I don't know how I missed THIS one for so long, but luckily I finally came across this skin and I'm so glad that I did ... it's superb! Unlike it's rivals (all of which I've tried in the past) this one is actually clear and has a GORGEOUS tactile key response (meaning you can actually still type with little to no effort)! The others feel like you are attempting to type through THICK rubber cement ... but this one is SWEET! It's quite clear (almost invisible), it's very thin, and allows for easy depressing of keys!!!!! Pricey, yes it is! Worth the cost?! YES (especially considering the cash that I spent on the other, more cloudy, thick/gross/RUBBER models)!

    Moshi Keyboard Protector

    • Written by from Minden

    This product is AWESOME. 5/5 for this.
    I love how snug/perfect it fits. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. For all the people complaining on cleaning, you probably 95% did it wrong. For all who are worried about cleaning, don't be worried. Info for cleaning:
    1. Apply some mild detergent (i.e. dish washing detergent) on a damp cloth
    2. Gently scrub both the front and backside of ClearGuard with the cloth
    3. Rinse ClearGuard thoroughly with water
    4. Place ClearGuard on tissue paper and air dry naturally
    *Note: Excessive force during cleaning may induce wrinkles/creases
    Do not use soap to clean ClearGuard.

    Great for what it was intended for

    • Written by from Austin

    I have had this keyboard guard for a year. It does protect against spills and splashes, which is exactly what I got it for after ruining a laptop keyboard with a drink one time. The downsides are that it dulls the look of your keys, making them hard to see when they are not back lit. And it also makes the sound of the computer tinny. I am not sure about the heat dissipation issue, but I use my laptop several hours a day, and have never had any heat issues so far. If you have long fingernails though, you might end up cutting through the film after a time. But even with the problems, I love this guard and rely on it to protect my computer. If this one had a hole, I would buy another one in a second.

    A Great Product for your MacBook

    • Written by from Franklin

    I just purchased the Moshi ClearGuard for my new MacBook and I am so glad that I did. The product is really great, I have no problems thus far with it. It is really thin and does not impede on my typing whatsoever. You can still clearly see the backlighting through the cover. In my opinion the cover is great, I really enjoy the feel of typing with it plus it is so simple to remove and clean. Would highly recommend the product.

    Should be standard equipment

    • Written by from Belleville

    This protector should come in the box with every Macbook. If you appreciate how exquisitely prone Macs are to damage from even the slightest exposure to liquids (something I learned the hard way fairly recently), then you understand that a protector like this is a requirement, not a luxury, and I'm somewhat annoyed that I have to pay extra for it. But it is what it is. Don't wait until you experience a catastrophic failure due to accidental spillage (specifically NOT covered by any warranty), as I did, before making this small investment to protect your much larger investment.

    Great product

    • Written by from Lewisville

    I've been using this for a few months now and I have a recommendation before you start using it. After a while the used keys get a white haze from the oil and skin from your fingers which is difficult to remove. I was cleaning my macbook with klearscreen iKlear and I sprayed some on the Moshi. It made the keys less 'sticky'and easier to clean off the muck. BTW, I tried other key covers and this is by far the best.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Ogden

    I recently noticed my macbook unibody (about 2 weeks old now) getting a lot of grease, dust buildup on the keyboard and the keys itself. I ended up purchasing the iKlear solution to clean my keys up--which I highly recommend, it did wonders for me-and it made my keys look brand new again. And I also purchased this Moshi keyboard protector to prevent further buildup. So far I've used to for 3 days and it is fantastic. You can barely feel the silicone type skin underneath your fingers. And it is specially made for the macbook keys, so it fits well. If you're looking for great protection for your keyboard, but don't want the hassle of bulky silicone covers, definitely get this one. It is 1/5 of the size of regular silicone covers and it does a great job!

    Perfect Keyboard protector for Macbook pro!!!

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I bought this keyboard protector right after just getting my macbook pro 13"
    I read the reviews and people say that it was good.
    But i didn't have high expections...its just a keyboard protector :\
    But wow! when i put the keyboard protector, it's like it isn't even there! it fits perfectly on the MCP keyboard! And i love how smooth and clean it feels when i touch the keyboard.
    It still do feel the rubber feel when typing, but it isn't so much that it disrupts you.
    I think this product is a must for macbook users because i notice after a while the keyboard get really durty with dust and hair. Also the greese makes the keyboard look disgusting.
    Love this product, MUST HAVE!

    Ah,,,,It happened!!

    • Written by from Hampton

    My son bought a Macbook in October of 2009. I went with him to the Applestore - my first exposure to Apple and Apple People. One week after buying the Macbook - he spilled a cup of coffee into the keyboard. The Macbook was FRIED. Apple gave him a brand new one. He bought this cover. I needn't say more, but I was so impressed by Apple - that I gave up 30 years of PC use and bought an iMac a month later. I'm so impressed by this iMac that I'm buying another one for my wife's birthday.

    A Must Have!

    • Written by from Miami

    I am in love with this product. The clear keyboard protector is almost invisible, and my favorite part is the sound reduction from typing. It is worth the investment. :)

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Fort Collins

    I saved my own money for a long time to get a macbook pro when I started college. I wanted to protect my investment so I bought some things for it. I didn't initially think about the keyboard though. I noticed that after a time the keyboard, especially the space bar was getting a very unattractive shiny gloss over it. And the keys felt a little slippery and just not as satisfying to type on. I spend a lot of time typing, and I really didn't want my keyboard getting worn out any time soon. Or to have my entire computer not stand a chance if some water was to sink into the internal parts through the keyboard if something was spilled. The keyboard seems to be the most vulnerable part of the computer in terms of spill damage. The only problem was that I also really, really hate the squishy rubbery feel of most keyboard protectors. I don't want my keyboard to feel like it has a little latex pillow that I have to press through over each key. Tactile response is everything in keyboards. So I did some research and found all of the Moshi products for macbooks.

    At first I was a bit disappointed. The cover was rising up in a corner and not laying perfectly flat like I wanted it to. I also had to get used to the new feel, even if it was only slightly different. But after a few days, it just flattened out and now conforms to the macbook perfectly. I really don't notice it all now. My only reminder is the slight clouding of the color of the black keys. But that's only superficial, and well worth it. The back lights show through with no issues whatsoever.

    I did a lot of research before picking this one and there seems to be a lot of issues with the cheaper alternatives that deterred me from buying them. Other keyboard protectors that try to color the rubber on top of the keys to either make it more discrete (black) or putting funky colors on it. Maybe a different color can be cute or the black can be less noticeable but it obscures the real keyboard and its back lights. I saw some video reviews where they either didn't show through at all, or they did but the letters on the cover were not in line with the letters on the keyboard. It creating a sort of blurry, layered effect for all of the letters in the dark. Some also didn't actually have the same shape of the keys in the cover, they made the cover completely squared instead of slightly rounded like the keys really are. Some also made the lettering on the keyboard bigger than it was on the keyboard. I thought it made it look pretty juvenile... None of that is an issue with the moshi keyboard because it's just letting the real keys show through. All while avoiding that squish. Why do youtube reviewers think it's a good thing if the cover can stretch like a rubber band...?

    Cleaning is very easy, and not needed often anyway. Tactile response is actually a little better now in my opinion. It feels more natural than it did before; after I got used to it, of course. Other keyboard protectors do not compare by a long shot. It's not a floppy piece of rubber. It doesn't stretch like a rubber band when you are handling it. It keeps it shape. And best of all, its discrete. Clearly the length of this review speaks to how easy it is to type on as well :)

    Turns Back The Clock!

    • Written by from Port Colborne

    As the title says, this product really takes the wear out of my keyboard. After using my MBP without the cover for 8 months it started to look slightly used, even after a thorough cleaning. Then looking at the keyboard after about a month of using the cover, the keyboard itself looks resilient and factory fresh, without any signs of wear and tear. I'd say it's a great small investment especially since it will cover the keyboard holes and protect from accidental liquid spill as well. Great product. Highly suggested!

    Better Than Zcover

    • Written by from fountain valley

    I've never felt compelled to write a review until now. I returned the Zcover and got this instead. This is so much better. It's a lot thinner, fits well on the keyboard, and doesn't feel like you're typing on the cover. Also, this isn't just for the uni's, it's also for the new white Macbooks. Since it isn't mentioned here but on the Moshi website, I thought I'd write it here.

    It's awesome

    • Written by from San Diego

    I've tried other keyboard covers but this is the best by far. Typing with the cover on is almost as enjoyable as typing without one (other covers are so thick that it feels like the keys are glued to the keyboard). The only thing that slightly annoys me is that the cover is so thin that it is very easy for it to slip off, but I'm definitely nitpicking at this point.

    Awesome

    • Written by from HOLT

    I bought this because I have a 4 year old who is constantly around me! I took a little getting used too - but I highly recommend it. It keeps dust, food, drink off your keyboard! When you see what it collects you will be in awe. I am very happy with my purchase, and on top of protecting it from food and stuff it also protects the wear and tear of daily keyboard use. I am a first time user of this product and highly recommend it to everyone! No more air cans for me!!

    A bargain at twice the price...

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    This product is pure gold...

    The other day I sat down at my beloved MacBook Pro to work on some research. Sat down a fresh cup of tea and got to work. I was two hours into a major project when a book fell from of the shelf, landed on the cup of tea and splash - my desk and my keyboard of the computer were covered in Earl Grey and honey.

    The Moshi ClearGuard perfectly protected my keyboard by preventing the sticky liquid from seeping under the keys and destroying my computer and hours upon hours of research. I was able to quickly clean up the mess, and was up and running again within minutes.

    Total Life Saver.

    Excellent protection!

    • Written by from fullerton

    Ok, so I have a 2009 17" unibody MBP with Speck SeeThru cover and Bodyguardz palmrest & trackpad protector. In addition, I carry it around in a sturdy Swissgear Carbon backpack. Yes, I am overly cautious about protecting my investments. This keyboard protector was a last puzzle to a complete protection inside and outside.

    At first, it would not firmly stay on the keyboard, but after a while it slowly settled in and now sits quite nicely on the keyboard. Felt a bit weird typing with this proctector at first, but eventually got used to it and would probably feel violating to touch the keyboard without this protector.

    I think it's always good to be safe than sorry. Especially for the black key keyboard MBPs, it is known how easily a stain or dirt can stay on top and/or get inside the computer. I'd rather simply avoid any possible danger to my $3000+ investment.

    Perfection

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    Great protection and completely unobtrusive. I've had it about a month now and sometimes I have to lift a corner just to make sure it's still on because I swear it has fallen off. I thought the price was a little much at first too, but it fits and protects so well I think it's definitely worth the $$. I'm tempted to buy another one just in case they ever discontinue them because I'd have a sad MBP without it.

    Keyboard Protector

    • Written by from Brampton

    It is an excellent way to protect your keyboard from dust particles. I have seen keyboards without protectors and if the keyboard was taken apart for cleaning, it was a big surprise for me to see such a mess inside. It may not be visible, but it becomes very dusty inside without the protector and eventually the keys and the processor inside get damaged. I would definitely recommend this product.
    'Better safe than sorry' is the way to go.
