Rating: 3/5 Good for keeping keyboard clean March 11, 2015 This is a decent product for keeping your keyboard clean if you have to work with dirty fingers. The only negative I have is that it blocks the light backlighting the keys themselves & the caps lock LED. I would have given 5 stars if NewerTech could have made a keyboard cover that was translucent where there is backlight. This cover masks all backlight except from between each keyboard button.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 2/5 Rough Product August 9, 2012 This keyboard cover does line up with the keys, however, the excess silicone doesn't line up with the "lip" between the keyboard and the speakers. It overlaps, which means that any air movement lifts it up and causes it to move out of place. Also, the silicone is deformed on a few keys, like the space bar. Mine has a couple of bumps where it doesn't fit snugly. Also, you can't see through it with the backlight on the keys.

Pros: Matches the keys and general layout of the keyboard. Clear marking and the silicone feels good and makes typing quiet.

Cons: Imperfect fit. Overlaps instead of lining up with lip between keyboard and speaker grills. Non-see through. Because of the imperfect fit air and liquid could get underneath the "ridges" created by the excess on the edge. Keyboard cover touches screen when laptop is closed.

I bought this to feel safer about my keyboard and protect my computer. I neither feel more protected nor enjoy using this product. I will be attempting to return it and look for one that fits the keyboard better. Not bad for the first one on the market though.
