    Fuzzy grainy look ruins this

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Let's be honest, this product is expensive for what it truly is. But of course I will gladly pay for something that just works.

    This doesn't do that. It adds a fuzzy grainy effect over the retina display. I've read reviews where people described it as "it's there but it's not that bad". Oh it's definitely bad if there's a white background.

    A huge selling point for my new macbook was the retina display because of how much I have to stare at the screen. So if you have to do a lot of word processing (white background) I would not recommend it. I have inverted my colors in my text editor to be dark background with white text which helps. But still you will run into whites and light grays in other uses, and the color grain will be annoying.

    Otherwise, the installation was easy. By far one of the easiest I've ever had to do with a screen protector. The fit is also good.

    I would not recommend this product at all under any circumstance unless you are fully aware of the grain issue and need a anti glare screen.

    For me, I can't return it unfortunately, but I will be looking for a absolutely clear screen protector with the same ease of installation and fit.

    This protector isn't as clear as you thought it should be. Distractible and ruin the retina display.

    Pretty but fragile

    I love the look of this case because it's matte, meaning that it is closer to the texture of the macbook itself, but the case broke down in less than 10 months from purchase. That's pretty embarrassing, Moshi. Also embarrassing for Apple to back a product like this. I only used it for light commuting - no banging around, no hard contact, nothing that would have caused it to break down so quickly. I really wish I could get a refund on this.
