    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.

    I really liked the idea and I do use it when I am "being dirty" around my computer (e.g. eating). But when it comes to typing a document or email, I quickly take it off. It has a lot of traction so you have to completely pick up each finger and it slows down my typing considerably. It makes my fingers tired (which I never noticed before). I was going to use it with my students but I think this product makes typing more difficult.

    My other huge problem is that if there is anything on the key protector it gets on the screen when you close it. Things tend to stick to the protector and don't wipe/blow off easily. Therefore my computer screen gets dirty. I try to remember to take it off before I close it and am really annoyed with myself when I forget. When it is sitting around it can collect dust and stuff easily.

    Again, it is functional and when I need it I use it. But if I start typing an email, I quickly take it off. Other than those two complaints I like it. But they are big enough that I can't keep it on constantly like I was hoping. I took it off when I started typing this. :)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    iSkin is better

    Fits extremely well
    Same thinness as other brands

    Gets extremely cloudy (with light use)
    Makes typing more of an effort, just like other brands

    iSkins don't fit quite as well, but they stay clearer than moshi. If you have a backlit keyboard, get a skin that has black keys with clear letters to let the backlighting through. If you don't have backlighting, get the iSkin that has black keys with white letters. Black keys look much better than the clear skins.

    Can cause overheating issues on older Macbooks

    Purchased this for my daughter - she really wanted to keep her hair out from the keys of her Macbook. A few months later, her Macbook was literally overheating and the fans were very audible. Removing the protector solved the issue immediately. She only uses it now when she uses her Macbook for short periods of time, longer sessions she removes it. Apparently her roommate was suffering the same issue, and had the same protector.

    Be careful, it does what it is supposed to do, but it can cause issues with your Mac.

    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.

    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.

    Not sure if I'm going to keep it on for much longer..

    It is rather thin and fits relatively well over the keys, though I'd have to agree with others that it is stiff and gets cloudy quickly. I cleaned it gently with soap and water and let air dry just as the instructions said, and yet it only intensified. It makes the shiny black keys on my macbook pro very dull and harder to press, so I am frequently tempted to take it off, yet it is a necessity to keep it protected. Not worth the price.

    you can barely see it (when it's brand new of course)
    protects it from dust and supposedly spills (not going to test that one out)
    thinner than most others

    cloudy over time and after cleaning
    stiff when typing

    Good product, but could be cheaper

    I really like the keyboard protector, I have 2 dogs so it is a must to protect my macbook pro from getting hair underneather the keys, not to mention other foreign particles (i.e. dust, dirt, etc.). But, I do not know that it needs to be $25, it doesn't stick on, you have to make sure to have the keyboard in the right position so it doesn't fall off.

    Overall a good product.

    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! :)

    Muffles the sound!

    I got a new 13" macbook pro for school this year and i decided to buy this protector because i felt that it would be a good investment, it serves its purpose, and gets really dirty with fingerprints, but luckily its washable, it isnt as flat as it says and with it on, the sound of the macbook isnt as good which is a little disappointing, but it does what is supposed to!

    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

    Clouds quickly.

    Fits well. Protects well. But it is very conspicuous after only limited use. Washing helps but does not get rid of the fogged look. I love the contrast between the dark black keys of my MBP and its polished aluminum case. Unfortunately, for the sake of protection, this beauty must hide under a cloudy cover.

    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. :/

    Nice at first...doesn't hold up.

    Starts out nice but gets cloudy and hard to clean very quickly. Not worth the price.

    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!

    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.

    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.
