    Benefits and drawbacks

    • Written by Daniel M from Encino

    I bought this case in black to prevent scratches and dings to my 12" Retina MacBook. The case is lightweight but did add some bulk to my machine. I pop the case off once every week or two to wipe down my machine. Parts of the case have chipped/broken off over time which prompted me to purchase a second case (this time in clear). I have returned this second case because it felt more bulky and interfered with the hinge (maybe it was a defect?).

    Overall, the case is minimal but detracts from the appearance of the computer. I think buying a good sleeve is a better investment.

    Be careful!

    • Written by Shelby M from Lawrence

    I bought this case for my use of my MacBook in college and a few years ago the corner of the plastic case broke off into my headphone jack. Nobody could get it out. Not even Apple, they wouldn't touch it. Nor would any "tech" company near me. Finally I got tired of not being able to use my headphone and heated up a straight pin and melted the piece onto it to get the chunk of plastic out. (Risky, I know) While the case protected my laptop very well, it may not be suitable for wear and tear of a college kid who is constantly taking it in and out of a backpack, etc.

    Not worth the money

    I bought this the day I bought my new laptop for college, haven't had it a year and the whole bottom piece won't stay on now. The top clips have broke and its just cheap. Honestly, invest in a better case. Company wouldn't even send me a new one.

    Owned for 6 months, already is cracked and broken in several spots

    • Written by Kyle S from Colorado Springs

    I bought this case in June of 2016, and I am already seeing massive failures in several spots. I am never violent with my laptop, it lives in my laptop bag and is only out for charging or for use. Cracks on all sides, and I even had to tape one side. Very disappointed with the durability, but it did provide protection for a reasonable amount of time, hence the 2 star instead of 1.
