Rating: 5/5 Cheap and great cover June 24, 2019 Great cover. Bought it to use on my Macbook Pro 2011 because one of the keys is actually coming off when I type. Since I`ve added the keyboard cover, the key stays in place. It`s also nice because the keys don`t feel like my fingers slip easily on it, a little bit of grip is added. It`s also incredibly thin so you can`t even tell it has a cover when you type except for the fact that it`s red.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 works great, hardly noticeable January 2, 2016 I have never used one of these keyboard protectors and only have resorted to one because the printing on my keys have all worn off. I think it works great and even protects my keyboard from dust and contaminations. It does not affect my typing too much. I definitely recommend it for anyone in need of a cover or of news letters on the keys.

Rating: 5/5 NuGuard Keyboard Cover April 26, 2015 I bought the keyboard cover for my wife's MacBook Pro, not sure if she would use it or not, but she loves it. It is easy to forget that it didn't come manufactured as a part of the laptop.

Rating: 5/5 Great Product - Highly Recommended! December 8, 2014 I recently purchased my first MacBook Pro laptop. I have this machine set up as my main machine in my office. I have the laptop set up on a stand to keep it elevated and I use an external large monitor and standard keyboard / mouse. I tend to leave the laptop in the open position and this will inevitably gather dust. This keyboard cover will keep all the dust and crud out of your keyboard. This would be even more important if I were using the actual keyboard to type as there is always the possibility to dump a drink onto the keyboard and ruin your computer. For the price I cannot imagine not having this to give you piece of mind. Don't dump your coffee into your laptop and blow up your computer, with this cover all you have to do is rinse it off in the sink and you're good to go!

Rating: 5/5 Just What I Needed August 31, 2014 I had a red keyboard cover I got from another company for my laptop and I wore it out, particularly the e. Guess that's the letter I use the most. Was very happy to see this one from OWC. It was less expensive than the other one I got and the quality appears to be just as good or better. The shipping was very fast. Red is my favorite color so I was pleased to find this keyboard cover. Can't say anything about the durability because I just got it, but looks like it will last for along time. Can't see any cons.

Rating: 2/5 Could be better October 30, 2013 While this keyboard skin has a nice feel to it, its major drawback is that it simply will not lay flat on the keys. It curls on the edges resulting in it bulging/bunching up in the middle. Re-seating it over the keyboard doesn't help, it still bunches up and makes typing nearly impossible. This is the second NuGuard cover I've tried . . . the first did the same thing and I was hoping that this one would be better. Note: Cleaning it doesn't help with the problem.

Rating: 1/5 Not very good fit December 13, 2012 The cover comes folded in package and seams to still be creased, not sitting flat on all of the keys. The whole cover kind of floats on top, making it difficult to type. All I can say is I hope I can find a better cover or I'll just do without.

Response from OWC, Marketing December 14, 2012 The NuGuard Keyboard Covers do indeed come folded in the packaging. However, any evidenced "creasing" is usually released within the first usage. The "floating" feel to the cover itself is not caused by the way the units are packaged, but is rather the "silky smooth surface texture" feature of the keyboard cover itself. While some people find they still like the hard tactile feel of the actual keys, many others really like the smooth soft surface of the NuGuard.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect Protection November 13, 2012 You never know it's there protecting the guts of your MBP from minor spills and the everyday detritus of usage. A real bargain!

Rating: 5/5 This KB cover provides wonderful peace of mind October 3, 2011 With the protection it offers from spills and crumbs, I can focus on work (or music) without worrying about my coffee, soda, wine, donuts, etc. I buy one for every family member because I know who will be called if they spill without one. The cool factor you get with red, black or pink is just a plus.
