    Decent purchase

    • Written by from Chicago

    The palmguard was easy to put on. You can unstick it and replace if you place it down incorrectly. It comes in two stickers - the small tracking pad sticker and the bigger sticker. Even though this is supposed to fit my macbook pro 13", the bigger sticker is a little longer on the sides which required me to cut it down a little (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Other than that, the gritty texture that people have been talking about is a non-issue for me; it's not gritty to me. I have not had any trouble with the tracking pad sticker either. I do not have to press down any harder than usual; it is still sensitive. I'm just glad to have something to protect the bottom of my computer which gets awfully dirty.

    Great Product

    Works great. No complaints here. Even feels good, not grippy on the trackpad. I recommend this product to anyone who wears watches etc.

    ehh.

    • Written by from Tucson

    I got this wanting to preserve my Mac as best as possible. The overall fit isn't perfect. There is a little gap on both side. The palm guard is a rough, gritty feeling. It isn't smooth at all, same with the track pad. The guard really hinders the tack pad's sensitivity. I can no longer "tap to click" which is something I like a lot rather than clicking. The color of the guard is a little darker than the actual Mac body. I might end up not using the track pad cover at all.

    A must-have product

    • Written by from Vinemont

    I absolutely love the Moshi Palmguard! I am using it with my 13" MacBook Pro. It fits perfectly. It is almost unnoticeable. I love the feel of it and it does not reduce the sensitivity of the trackpad. Again, this is a must-have product & I absolutely love it!

    Well worth the money!

    • Written by from Antioch

    I bought the Moshi PalmGuard and the keyboard protector along with my MacBook Pro. The application was easy. I just aligned the edges perfectly and worked my way in securing it. The color matches my MacBook perfectly so I can hardly tell that it's there.

    I've read the other reviews on here so I was worried about the trackpad losing sensitivity or responsiveness if I applied the trackpad portion of the guard, but I haven't noticed a difference. If anything, it improved it. I noticed that when I used it without the guard, my finger would occasionally "slip" and the cursor wouldn't move on my screen (especially after washing my hands). The sandpaper-like texture of the trackpad gives it a bit more "grip" when you're using your finger to maneuver.

    INFINITELY better than the older suede version!!

    • Written by from Edwardsville

    I've gone through two of the older suede versions since I bought my macbook two years ago, and I love them for protecting my macbook, but they drive me nuts because for a student who's on their computer 8+ hours/day, it would just start looking dirty after a few months. So I was so excited when I saw that they improved the model in time for my second replacement. It's great and now (hopefully) I won't have to buy another one in 6-8 months!

    Great protection!

    • Written by from Ajax

    I love this product. The application process is so easy with tabs to help you remove the sticky part from the paper. The color and texture match perfectly with my Macbook pro. I have long nails and would hate to ruin the surface of my Macbook, so this is exactly what I was looking for.

    Overall a great protection plan for your Macbook!

    Protection, but with bad fit.

    • Written by from St. Andrews

    It looks nice on besides the fact that the trackpad piece is actually too small for the trackpad so there's an ugly space all around it in which particles collect. The right side of the palm piece keeps peeling up every couple of days. Not majorly, but I have to smooth it out. The feel is like sandpaper, especially on the trackpad. I'll use it because I paid for it and my macbook needs protection, but it's not the best product.

    Looks great, but bubbles

    • Written by from Richmond Hill

    As others have mentioned, this palm guard is perfectly matched to the Macbook Pro. It fits literally perfectly and even the colour is an exact match. Take the time to fit it exactly, you won't regret it. My problem is that it seems to bubble on the right side. I took the time, I layered it perfectly on the first try and for whatever reason it will occasionally bubble-- especially if I'm sitting outside with it. I didn't even bother with the trackpad cover based on the other reviews. It's a good buy, especially to protect against scratching at the wrist area. I wasn't crazy about the high shipping cost though. It arrived in a huge box when it's really a flat board that could fit in an oversized envelope. Hopefully the shipping costs weren't determined by the size of the box.

    Perfect

    • Written by from EAGLE

    Moshi did an awesome job on this. It blends in perfectly, and the fit is great. It was very simple to install...took me only one try. I only hoped Moshi had done a full body one for the MacBook Pro, I would most def get it. I also purchased the Moshi keypad cover...Both products are amazing. Fits well, and not noticeable!

    My trackpad stopped responding!

    • Written by from Nantucket

    I purchased the palm guard together with my 13'' MacBook Pro. I loved it! The colors was perfect, it felt well and I was sure my MacBook not only looks great, but will be protected.

    However, a few days ago ( now my MacBook is 6 months old), a certain spot on the trackpad stopped responding. It acted weirdly as it did not want to move and respond to finger movements. I read all sorts of forums, apple support, nothing helped until I decided to unstick the trackpad palm guard. I touched the stop which did not respond and it seemed fine. Then, I sticked back the palm guard and it was working fine.

    I have no idea where the problem came from, I would like to understand. Overall, it is a great product, I find it very useful and protecting, but as I described before, for some reason the trackpad did not respond.

    Great Product! Cheap Fix!

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    I recently dropped my tv remote on the palm rest to the immediate right of the track pad. Of course, my treasured mbp gets its first dent, though minor, it stuck out like a sore thumb, to me at least. So I look at replacement pieces and to my dismay they easily run $300+ with installation. I find this product and not only does it protect the computer, it completely hides the blemish. Blends great with aluminum finish and feels "protective". Install can be tedious, but take your time, it will be worth it. Excellent Product only wish I had found it sooner...

    I was able to actually reset mine a couple times to get it right and it's holding in place so the statement of you can only place it once is not quite true.. Very happy with this item. its a perfect fit on mine..

    Fit and Color are spot on!

    • Written by from Hellertown

    This shield is great! It provides great protection and the fit and color match my MBP-13" laptop perfectly. You can barely tell it's there! It's a great buy if you're looking to protect your wrist rest and trackpad from dull spots due to extended use.

    The ONLY negative I can see is that you do lose that smooth glass feeling of the trackpad. It is replaced with a very light texture, which is what will provide long wearing protection. It isn't enough to get annoyed with but it is worth noting that it has a little texture.

    Make sure you get this PalmGuard aligned properly the first time you put it on, as it's not repositionable. Once it's on your computer it virtually disappears! Great job MOSHI.

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Bangkok

    The store installed it for me, so I don't know how to comment on installation, but it was rather quick.

    The colour blends in well with the Macbook Pro Unibody, and I like the texture although it's not as smooth as the main body.

    As many have stated you do lose some sensitivity issues on the trackpad, but only for tap to click. You have to apply just slightly more pressure than normal, but you get used to it very quickly. I find that it is easier to use the finger gestures on this surface as well.

    Outstanding Product!!

    • Written by from Honolulu

    This is a must have for your MacBook Pro! Very easy to install. It only took me a few minutes to apply to my laptop. The trackpad protector integrates nicely and you won't even notice its there. I would like to see MOSHI add strips for the left and right panels, which is why I only gave 4 stars. That is a minor issue, but some of the other protectors cover the whole front. Still a great buy and product. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

    Not perfect, but definitely useful

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I just purchased the 13.3" MacBook Pro to replace my 3-year-old MacBook. One of the main problems I had with my old machine was that after a while, the palm-resting areas on either side of the trackpad became worn and discolored. I'm very into preserving the out-of-box loveliness of my computer, so I was definitely interested in something that would prevent this (without compromising the overall appeal of the computer).

    The moshi PalmGuard is the only product available at the Apple Store to do this, and so far, it does its job well. It blends well with the aluminum frame and also fits pretty well (it's definitely NOT a perfect fit, but it's close enough to not be problematic). The PalmGuard also comes with a trackpad cover, which I have not placed after reading reviews stating that it affects the sensitivity of the trackpad, which I believe. The material is definitely thin, but not thin enough to not affect the trackpad. And, because it's NOT attached to the the PalmGuard, it IS optional.

    Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to keep their laptop as pristine as possible.

    I bought this so that there wouldn't be any wear on the palm rest. Great product but it does come with a trackpad cover as well. I just wish that they would have said that in the description.

    Great!

    • Written by from New Cumberland

    I received the palm guard in the mail and it took one simple easy stick to get it to line up correctly. I LOVE it. My previous laptops have gotten quite dirty for the palm area. It matches perfectly and feels great. My only complaint is I did have to remove the track pad part of it. The sensitivity wasn't great (I do graphic design, so this was important) and there came to a point where it wouldn't register when I moved my finger over it. But overall, fantastic product. I'm buying another one for my husband's MBP.
