    not perfect but good

    It doesn't fit the keyboard perfectly. However, It let's me type comfortably and it's practically invisible.

    It's Okay....But Could Be Better.

    The item does it's job....sorta. it covers the keys of my 13" macbook pro with retina display, but the places for each key are not deep enough to ensure that the cover doesn't move when you type. in fact, it moves a decent amount, you could make a better investment in in a keyboard protector that is deeper and holds itself in place without moving. I'm not disappointed in this product per say, but I think I will be getting a new keyboard protector soon, one that doesn't move when you type and its better placed down on the keys.

    Doesn't fit perfectly (bigger) so it has room for slip and move

    Previously, I used Marblue keyboard protector, which was a little thick and has its own color. It was a little too thick so it leaves some stains on the display, and needed a little more strength when typing, which quickly made my fingers tired.

    Thus, I recently bought Moshi protector hoping that it is thin and doesn't mess up the display. I am satisfied on that perspective. I could also type with less strength.

    However, it is definitely bigger than my Macbook Pro Retina, so it doesn't fit perfectly. It has a room so it slips and moves around when I type. It moves for 1 mm maximum, to all directions (left, right, up and down). It bothers me although it's only 1 mm. The previous Marblue one was a little sticky so it never moved. You should definitely consider this and compare with other products!

    Don't make this mistake

    Maybe this applies only to german keyboards. But they are slightly different to the US. The "enter" key on the german keyboard is different so this protector will not fit perfectly.

    Beside that, it is a good product. If it is worth the amount of money is another question.

    Does not fit the keys

    I got the european version but it does not fit the top line of keys, which is just too large for the keys verticle dimension.
    Otherwise it's great, I use it and it takes some getting use to but worth the trouble.
    I just wish the cover fit all keys for the exact dimensions.

    Doesn't fit well

    I'm happy to have the added protection from debris getting under the keys. It feels like it's lose and a little wider than it should be. If the machine gets hot it can stick to fingers if you rest them on it for a while. It's clear enough but it does make the keys a little cloudy.

    Turns yellow over time

    In fact it is a great product and the thinness is great. But keep in mind that it will become yellowish over time (or at least noticeably darker then when you first bought it). Washing cleans it up a bit, but the dark tint remains. sigh.

    Not exactly what the (positive) reviews say

    Encouraged by overall positive feedback, I have purchased the Moshi Clearguard for situations in which I have to use my Retina MBP with not necessarily clean hands. Unfortunately, the products is not what I expected. The awesome MacBook keyboard becomes a totally different one and typing on it is not fun anymore. Whereas for pressing single keys it's okay, for typing a full text I keep on making mistakes and overall type a lot slower than without the protector. Also, after a while the fingers get more sweaty than usual and you get a feeling of stickiness while using (and I'm not the type of a sweaty-palms guy).
    Having said that, the Clearguard still fits pretty well and protects the keyboard from dust & oily fingers. So for me it's worth using only in very special situations, when you want to avoid otherwise problematic process of cleaning the keyboard itself after the use.

    Not too bad, not too good

    In terms of protection, it is somewhat usefull. My only problem is that it is never clean on both sides. I wash it with water and soap every other day, but it always looks dirty. Not sure how I can dry it properly to remove those water spots.
    The one for full size wired keyboad is what they need to make for macbook.
    On the other hand, if you remove it, your mac in shinny but looks dirty
    It is so sticky that it works like vacuume cleaner and grabs everything including even one hair.

    5/5 for a Macbook Pro 3/5 for Macbook Air

    I'm only rating this a 3/5 so that this review gets noticed by people purchasing/because I wish Moshi made a Keyguard for 13" Macbook Air!

    I've used this exact key guard on a Macbook Pro (13") and a Macbook Air (13"). On the Macbook Pro, it is amazing, as it is specifically made for this computer. It does get dirty considerably fast though, and the standard Apple cleaner does a terrible job at cleaning it. That being said, the grime on the key guard does not get on the screen, and obviously stays off of your keyboard.

    However, there is no 13" Macbook Air Keyguard by Moshi. So owners of this are forced to by this key guard [it is the best on the market in my experience]. On the Macbook Air (13") it feels clumsy and my typing slows down considerably because I feel as though my fingers are slipping slightly from side to side. Also, because the material is so thick/sits off of the keys so high, it rubs against the screen and leaves gross oil marks on the screen that are a pain to remove. I do have slightly oily hands because I tend to use moisturizers regularly. I would not recommend buying it for a Macbook Air 13" for this reason. I will be waiting (and hoping) for a 13" Macbook Air version of the Keyguard.

    Protection, but comes off easily

    This keyboard protector fits okay. The key holes are too deep so there are bubbles over top of the individual keys from the plastic. When you press, it's a little more effort, not significant, but the bubble becomes more pronounced. If you move your finger at all whilst pressing the key the key slides. Sometimes when you life your finger up the protector will stick and come too. The arrow keys are a particular problem for me and that side is always always coming loose so I have to readjust the protector. I'll use it so I don't ruin the keyboard, but if I had a major spill on it, I wouldn't expect it to provide total protection because of the poor fit and loose edges.

    Please read this review

    It serves its purpose and keeps the keyboard clean, the only thing is it is really uncomfortable to type with. If you dont mind relearning how to type and like a clean computer it is worth it

    I just got this in the mail today, and I must say it's not that great. Yeah it looks like nothings there but it's pretty hard to press on the keys. :/

    Good but dirty

    It does protects your keyboard from dirt and looks beautiful the first 2 weeks for the back lights BUT once you washed it starts getting gray and ugly i wish it could stay the same way as the first days but at the end my mac-book pro had a bad look and the keyboard like and old computer. it was all gray i threw it away and i got a black one that one looks awesome but the bad things is that you're not able to the back-lights (just a little bit) but it looks better than with the moshi all grayed. i would probably get it again but i would never wash it again maybe just clean it with air compressed or something because the mac looks pretty with the clear keyboard protector.

    Smudges the screen

    I have used this product on a 13" Mac for the last 12 months. It obviously works well because it collects the dirt and grease. But this has a downside in that it badly smudges the screen everytime i close it. I have tried all hints to clean it - none seem that effective?
    Not sure whether there is any fix for that!

    Use with care.

    Keep in mind that your MacBook Pro dissipates heath from the back grill but also from the keyboard the fans push the warm air out of your keyboard keys. Also under the right side of the keyboard you have a sound speaker, so expect the cover to attenuate the sound.

    does the job, but not perfectly

    pros: covers the keys tightly and is barely noticeable when typing. easy to clean. when backlit, the keys are very bright. adds a softer feel.

    cons: sometimes the cover lifts or slips up, especially on the right side when hitting the delete key with the pinky. this is hardly a deal-breaker but annoying. also, the macbook pro doesn't look nearly as shiny and stylish with this piece of film on top. the keyboard's sharp glossy face is immediately lost behind the keyboard protector.

    i guess that's the price you pay for greater spill and dirt resistance.

    Low rating for dumb "Moshi" insignia on cover

    I bought an Apple because it's an Apple, not so I can advertise for Moshi. That label on the keyboard is pretty annoying. Aside from that... it is thin but I wouldn't want to type on the thng. So I pretty much got it as a keyboard cover so I can keep the dust off while I use my Apple wireless bluetooth keyboard. Also, it's a bit lazy of them not to finally fit this thing properly around the "function" keys. Lowers the standard to make it one size fits all for older machines.

    Anyway, it looks nice and I'm happy but it's just an expensive cover.

    Its Okay!!!

    Feel its a bit pricey. I have tried to stretch it so it would cover keys at both ends....right now if it covers the keys at one end then the opposite side keys does not get adequate fit. This is a good cover if you have sweaty hands.

    moves around

    This keyboard cover is very very thin, so you can't really tell it's even there. It feels awesome because it's so thing and it's easy to type. The only downside is it doesn't have a very hard grip on the keys, so the cover does move a lot for me. I ended up returning it and getting the zcover, which is obviously thicker than this one, but it sticks on to the keys just great. Hope this helps! :)
