    Perfect fit but sluggish feel and sticky keys

    • Written by from South Pasadena

    The cover fits perfectly and I really want to like it, however, the cover frequently settles in underneath the keys resulting in a sluggish feel. Further, I subconsciously feel as if I need to press the keys more firmly in order to engage the key, which tires my fingers out. This is a big bummer, because one of the things I love most about apple computers is the buttery smooth responsiveness of the keyboard. I guess I'll just save the cover for times when I'm likely to drop or spill something on the keyboard. If you must use the cover full-time, then I recommend slightly offsetting it so the edge sits slightly on to of the key instead of snuggling fitting around it. This keeps the cover from wedging itself underneath the keys, avoiding the sluggish feel and the occasional sticky key. Note, I purchased the cover and used it with a brand new Macbook Pro 13, so there was no previous built up grit or grim to cause the sluggish feel. When I remove the cover the keyboard feels and works perfectly.

    It's ok.

    I just bought this protector with my birthday money. All I can say is I should've invested in something worth $24.95. This was worth more like.....$1.

    It fits nicely, but the one huge downside is the fact that it attracts every single piece of dust, hair and oil from your fingers. Then when you try to wipe it down, it just attracts more dust and hair from whatever you used to wipe it down with!

    Nice fit, but sooooo not worth $24.95.

    Pros and Cons for using Moshi with the MacBook Air

    • Written by from Austin

    This cover came as advertised, and I liked using it until I noticed that it seemed to be slowing down my computer. I would recommend using it only when you want to be especially quiet or when you are likely to get your computer dirty. I no longer use it for everyday use.

    Pros:
    The keyboard cover fits the keyboard perfectly.
    Typing is quieter with the cover on.
    The cover keeps the keyboard clean - no more accumulation of dirt and oil.

    Cons:
    The keys feel slightly less responsive. You type slower until you get used to the cover.
    The cover picks up oil from your fingers and deposits it on the screen.
    The cover causes the computer to get very hot and slow down. Networking in particular is much slower when the cover has been on for a while. It also seems to slow down the processor.
