    Moshi ClearGuard Keyboard For MacBook & MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Pincher Creek

    I love my Moshi clear keyboard cover for my MacBook Pro. Right from the start it was great to use. My husband thought he wouldn't want one especially at the price. But, after he saw how much I liked mine, he wished that I had got him one.
    Anyway, when I ordered mine, I also purchased one for his MacBook. I gave it to him in his Christmas stocking and he is as delighted as I am. Especially, since he always had crumbs on his keyboard.
    I would recommend it to anyone -- it is really easy to keep clean.

    AWESOME!!

    • Written by from St.Petersburg

    i just picked this product up. and since the keys are already black i decided to go with the clear cover. it fits perfectly on the keyboard and doesn't move around. also when you type, the sound the click makes sounds kind of good. and the best thing about it that you don't have to worry about getting dust or anything else stuck in your keys.

    A bargain at twice the price...

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    This product is pure gold...

    The other day I sat down at my beloved MacBook Pro to work on some research. Sat down a fresh cup of tea and got to work. I was two hours into a major project when a book fell from of the shelf, landed on the cup of tea and splash - my desk and my keyboard of the computer were covered in Earl Grey and honey.

    The Moshi ClearGuard perfectly protected my keyboard by preventing the sticky liquid from seeping under the keys and destroying my computer and hours upon hours of research. I was able to quickly clean up the mess, and was up and running again within minutes.

    Total Life Saver.

    Awesome Product

    • Written by from Panama City

    The day I received my keyboard cover, it saves my computer's life. For no apparent reason, I did what I never do, and that was to have a open glass of water near my MacBook Pro. I accidentally knocked the glass over on my desk, and my computer was covered with water. Had the keyboard protector not been there, my computer surely would have been damaged.

    This is $30 definitely worth spending; it saved my $1500 purchase.

    Low rating for dumb "Moshi" insignia on cover

    • Written by from Chicago

    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.

    Moshi Clear Gaurd

    • Written by from minneapolis

    WOW! this is the best product to protect your macbook keyboard. it is so thin, thinner than paper it felt like it was going to rip. but it is a good thing because it fits perfect. it feels a little different typing but does the job in protecting the keyboard. note if you have a 13 inch macbook pro, remember that the sound comes out of the keyboard so the sound seems to sound a little different. barely noticeable though, i did not think about it until a couple days later, the sound seems to come out where the fan spins. but i love this product and is exactly what i was looking for in a keyboard cover! do not hesitate to buy this product it will not let you down!

    Apple needs to think Green!

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    The Moshi product is ok, a little hard to get used to, but the reason I gave it such a low rating was due to the offensive way it was packaged and shipped. The product box is 14 inches long, 6 inches wide, and about a 1/3 of an inch thick, yet it arrived in a box more appropriate for a microwave or TV. A large manila envelope would have been more suitable. I can't believe Apple is this wasteful and cares so little about the environment. Shame!

    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.

    Its Okay!!!

    • Written by from Greenwood

    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.

    using on silver keys...

    • Written by from CASTLETON

    I don't understand the person from Texas who says it's no good on silver keys. I've used mine for quite a while now and it works beautifully. I would suggest disregarding that comment.

    If your keys are not black do not buy this cover

    • Written by from Austin

    This clearguard cover will not work on your mac if you have the Macbook Pro with silver keys, despite your computer only being about 1-1.5 years old Apple currently does not carry a cover that will work for your macbook pro. Sadly. We are left at risk of spills. Look for a 3rd party solution.

    APPLE carry a clear cover for our macbooks (non uni-body) with the silver keys.

    Not Bad

    • Written by from Miami

    The Keyboard Protector is not bad, the only thing it looks like it could come off easily. Typing is not bad and the back lit keys are seen easily.

    moves around

    • Written by from Queen Creek

    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! :)

    Great Product

    • Written by from st. catharines

    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.

    Functional

    • Written by from Kent

    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. :)

    Very useful

    • Written by from Keller

    The cover is very thin as they describe. You can feel a difference in the texture when you type - the keys are hard plastic whereas the cover gives them more of a cushion - but overall it really doesn't change the feel of typing much at all. It fits the keyboard pretty much perfectly, although some of the key "holes" are a little off, so you just have to fold that part over to get the cover to fit smoothly on top. The only real issue would be if you absolutely love matte black color of the keys. The cover is slightly opaque so it turns the keys more grey, but the brighter you have to keyboard back light on, the less noticeable it is. Even without the light, it really doesn't make any difference unless, like I said, you are in love with the black.

    Expecting More But Worth Purchasing

    • Written by from Taunton

    The keyboard protector is nice and thin compared to its counterparts and it does a good job at keeping debris out of my keyboard. The fit however isn't exactly as customized as I thought it would be. There is extra space around the F keys and the bottom edge should have been cut a tiny bit more so that it won't roll up if you slide your hands up to the keyboard wrong. Also the way it sits towards the edges isn't completely flush with the aluminum around the keys. So if you type too fast, you will sometimes get the feeling that you might pull up the protector as you type. The protector gets dirty pretty quickly, seems to be a magnet for bits of lint and dog hair, but interferes minimally with typing. All in all I'm glad I purchased it but was expecting a bit more.
