    Better than Silicon

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I've been using a silicon keyboard protector since I purchased my MacBook Pro almost exactly a year ago and found it sufficient at its job. But after discovering the Moshi ClearGuard I quickly (and thankfully) abandoned it. The ClearGuard is much lighter and easier to type with than the silicon protectors and inhibits your typing only minimally relative to a naked, unprotected keyboard.

    The ClearGuard has texture which might prevent the easy slide of your fingers from one key to the next (familiar to those without a protector) if that is your typing style (not completely lifting your fingers from the keys), but is worth the money for protecting the underlying electronics from debris and the keys from acquiring the worn-out look of a well used keyboard.

    Other reviewers have complained about the extra space above the function keys, and yes it is there, but this is nitpicking considering the ClearGuard is almost completely transparent. As in most products there is always room for improvement, but this is the best product for the purpose I've come across. Give it a try.

    Great Product

    The protector is transparent. It's hardly visible and it fits the keyboard perfectly. One I should mention about is, it makes the typing a little bit noisy but it really does the job.

    Great protection once used to it!

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I have had this protector in place since I received my MacBook Unibody a month ago. It was awkward at first, and took a little getting used to, but now it seems as if it is an integral part of the computer. I tried typing with it off, and the keys are too smooth! I like the feel of this on the keyboard. It is much easier to clean the stickies off this than the actual keyboard after my 8 year old uses the computer without washing his hands. (I know: "MY child would never disrespect the computer like that! Harumph!!" I live in Reality World and my children are not perfect. Sorry!)

    Summary: This works, and feels good. Seals off a point of vulnerability on your MacBook or MacBook Pro. Is worth the low price for the insurance it provides.

    great!

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    When I first got my 13" white unibody macbook, i immediately wanted a keyboard cover because, well, my keyboard is white! My friends had the silicon keyboard covers, so I went on ebay and bought one just like theirs. After a while of using it, I started to really hate it because dust and debris would stick onto it very easily because of the silicon material. I then read the description of the moshi keyboard cover and decided that it would be worth a shot to try.. I have to say it was the best decision I made because this keyboard cover is everything the description said it would be. Yes, it does make it a LITTLE more difficult to type, but not nearly quite as much as the silicon covers. Really, that's just what happens with a keyboard cover--you are not going to find one that's any thinner than this one. The material is great, so dust and debris do not stick to it very easily and it is very easy to wash. It's 1/5 the size of the silicon cover, and trust me, it makes a big difference. All my friends who have the other keyboard covers are very jealous that I have this one. With my white mac, you can't even tell there's a keyboard cover!

    Very pleased and I would buy this as a present for my friends who are mac users! I've put it on the macbook pro, and since it has a tint of white to it, it makes the black keys look a little grey, but if you can get past that fact, then I really recommend this product. Especially for white mac users!

    great addition to macbook pro

    • Written by from tampa

    I can type perfectly with this on and it does it's job of protecting the computer from spills or other damage which is its purpose because water damage is not covered under warranty, so for a $2500.00 computer not a bad choice...

    love this product!

    • Written by from East Berlin

    i got my macbook a few months ago and was pretty finicky about making sure that it stayed pristine from the beginning.

    this cover is the perfect fit for my 15" Pro and stays on perfectly. i have even washed it several times--with just warm water and gentle soap--and it look as good as new every time.

    there are only two very picky negatives to this product: 1) the very top row, above the function keys, is about a millimeter bigger than the keys, however, this is not a problem, seeing as everything still fits and 2) any residue on the cover finds it way onto my screen, still i believe it is better than having the keys themselves touching the screen.

    overall, i really appreciate keeping my keyboard very neat and clean!

    Awesome for accident-prone people

    • Written by from Dallas

    I got this within two weeks of getting my new MacBook, and without it, my laptop might be dead a few times over. It fits really well (there is a very very small space above the function keys, 1 mm or less), and I was concerned about it slipping off, but it's stayed on really well. I don't notice it when typing at all, and it has gotten a little cloudy, but I've read from other reviews that you can use iKlear or baby oil to make it clear or shiny again. I wash it with dishsoap and it makes it clean again for a while.

    I haven't had a problem with it causing my MacBook to overheat at all, and I haven't noticed any impact on audio quality whatsoever, as some other reviewers have said. Most importantly, it keeps dirt, dust, crumbs, pet hair, liquid spills, and everything else that dares venture near my keyboard from destroying my computer. I can just lift it up and shake it off, or get a paper towel and wipe something off of it, and my beautiful black keys are as shiny and new as when I first bought my MacBook 8 months ago. If you're like me and have clumsy moments here and there, this keyboard protecter is a life saver. Well worth the money.

    It works

    • Written by from Anchorage

    It works great, keeps the dust, dirt and especially crumbs off and out of the keyboard. As for the fogging on the keys, I found that very annoying, I tried the iklear as someone else suggested, IT WORKS GREAT!! The moshi looks brand new. You have to remove the cover and clean both sides. For some odd reason most of the smudging and fogging seems to be on the back side of the cover. I also like the fact that it really quiets the clicking of the keys when typing.

    I have a bad habit of snacking and drinking near my laptop. No worries with this little piece of kit. The feel of the keyboard is not at all compromised. Highly recommended.

    Wow

    • Written by from Pasadena

    I am even more impressed with this product in person than I was reading the great reviews and seeing the youtube videos on it.

    I miss the smooth cool touch of the silver keys and how the beveled shape cradled your fingertips. I dislike the tactile quality of the black keys, how my finger oils leave their mark, and how my fingers don't glide across the surface. Since there are huge gaps between the keys I worried about dust. All of this led me to purchase a moshi clearguard.

    It fell into place so so easily. I had a narrow tool on hand for pressing it into the grooves but it was completely unnecessary. I do see what people mean about the mold being slightly too large for the function keys at the top but it is hardly noticeable and hasn't caused me any problems while typing.

    Right away I loved the feel of the clearguard OVER the feel of the naked keys. There is less friction so my fingers glide easier. Do note that the clearguard turns your matt keys into semi-glossy keys. If you have an overhead light you will notice a reflection. This doesn't bother me at all since the backlit keys overpower any glare that may make reading the keys difficult.

    It's true, you can barely see this thing on. I can't believe it. Wow, I love it so much. The temperature hasn't been affected at all. I am typing at my normal speed and this thing has not shifted. That's what I was really worried about. I am even lying down with my knees bent up so my keyboard is at an extreme angle and it isn't going anywhere. I am now rubbing my hands up and down and across, still not going anywhere.

    I am SO happy. 6 Stars for this product.

    Is there a keyboard on your computer?

    • Written by from Richmond

    Moshi protector :

    Pros
    Does not pick up a lot of dirt or lint.
    Thin and barely visible.
    Does not interfere with typing
    No can really tell you have it.
    Does not leave any marks on the screen.

    Cons
    Could be a little cheaper
    Nothing else

    I recently purchased a Zcover and I can tell youthat cover attracts dirt, lint, and any other small particles. The Zcover is hard to type on and warped after a 1 month of use. Do not buy the Zcover buy the Moshi keyboard Proctector.

    Nice product

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I'm really glad I got this along with my MacBook. It's always been on and it's amazing how smudgy it got with fingerprints and everything. When you lift it up, you can see all the dirt and stuff. The keyboard though still looks completely brand new.

    The only minor thing is that it touches the MacBook's screen a little since it's a little higher. This causes the outline of the keyboard almost to show up on the screen that's only visible on a black screen. It's easy to remove though with some of the iKlear stuff so it's really not a big deal. 5 stars from me!

    The Good & The Bad

    • Written by from Tampa

    The BAD: Nothing, really. It takes a little bit to get used to typing, and the guard kinda stays raised a little on the keyboard, and lifts slightly as you type, but nothing that should bother a person.

    The GOOD: Everything. When you first get it, you'll be surprised at how thin and flimsy it is. It IS incredibly thing and truly transparent. You don't even notice it unless you look. Even if you do see it, it's so sleep and professional looking, you'll want one anyway.

    It very slightly lessens how black the keys on the keyboard look, and the backlighting is just a tad less bright, but I'm being tedious just so people get an honest review. It's absolutely wonderful.

    OVERALL: Look forward to no longer getting crumbs stuck under your key so you havta hit it seven times in a specific spot to make the letter work.

    Also, look forward to no longer having the letters smudge off after some time due to excessive use. This will indeed protect the keyboard.

    OH! And no more need for an aircan!!!

    Well worth the money.

    You can barely even tell the case is on your keyboard. It's great at keeping unwanted dust etc. out of your keyboard. It's light and stays on the keyboard well. It also lets through the light on your illuminated keyboard very well. This is an all around great product.

    Best Keyboard Cover

    • Written by from Markham

    Before I bought the Moshi ClearGuard, I bought the Zcover one that was available in stores. I didn't like it once i put it on because it didn't even fit the keyboard properly. I returned it and in place ordered the Moshi ClearGuard and it is amazing. It fits perfectly and it doesn't even feel like it's there. It even makes my typing softer. It is not silicon material, so it is not sticky or hard to type. I definitely recommend this to anyone.
