Well...

Jennifer, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: The product was okay, but it was not perfect. The edges curled up right out of the packaging. It doesn't lay flat on the keyboard as you would expect for a pricy product. I had to tape the sides down to make it fit as it should. And it looks tacky. bleh. I honestly don't recommend this product if you're a stickler for such details.

Not great, not terrible...

S.B., Amazon

  • Summary: I am an armchair Wacom Cintiq user, (specifically the Cintiq 20WSX, mounted to an Ergotron articulating arm), and like a lot of other people writing reviews here, I wanted a product that A) joined my Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad into one unit, and B) allowed me to use the Magic Trackpad on my lap.

It has to be taped down so it doesn't come off.

Maria Schlingheyde, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: It is nice and thin but b/c it is, it lacks any weight to stay put. I have to use scotch tape on all the edges to keep it in place on my apple compact sized keyboard (without extra number pad). It would be nice if the manufacturer would have made the edges with an adhesive to correct the issues i'm having. The scotch tape makes it look unattractive and pretty ghetto looking. It's much easier to type with than a silicone cover but at least those stay put.

I love it but the price is a bit ridculous

Jukester, Amazon

  • Summary: Tried to get something similar from the Apple store at the mall but they don't have it available. Went onto Amazon and found this. When I received it, the hold thing was just a piece of plastic with the edge curved in to hold the keyboard and touchpad. I don't think its worth the 30 bucks I paid.

A little loose

Future Retro, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: The product is pretty simple and straightforward, however I expected it to solidify the keyboard and trackpad into one rock solid piece. That's not the case, it's essentially a tray that clamps them side by side but it doesn't lock them into place up and and down so you can tilt them while they are in the tray, but that's the price you pay for getting to actually click the trackpad.

It works, has a few usability issues

C. Esser, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: The product is solid construction, holds the two pieces together well and presents them at a nice angle. One of the things that is a bit annoying is that the BT activation button for the keyboard is not reachable when it is snapped into the tray. If the computer drops the connection or the keyboard isn't waking up and detecting, in order to hit the button you have to pop the keyboard out of the tray.

A little hard to type

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this cover to keep my keyboard clean and that it will do. The only drawback is that it changes the 'feel' of the keyboard and it is harder to type quickly with this cover in place. The cover fits well. I guess it will take a little getting used to it, but I do like it.

Doesn't stay in place very well when using modifier keys, still very nice

Brett L. Schuchert "http://schuchert.wikispaces.com", Amazon
18 August 2010
  • Summary: The build quality is great. The look is good and the feel is decent. If I am just typing letters and numbers, it generally feels decent and works well. Here's the problem for me, I use a lot of modifier keys. Right now I'm working in both OS X and Windows XP/7 in a VM. When I'm in the VM, I end up using ctrl, alt and shift a bit, typically together. When I use those keys, I tend to push the cover a bit.

Nice, but affects feel of keyboard

Art Sloan "Art S.", Amazon
24 May 2010
  • Summary: This is a very nice-fitting protective cover for your Mac's keyboard; however, it reduces your contact with the keyboard keys thus interfering with your typing. For some people this may not be such a big deal, but for those of us with sensitive fingers it is just uncomfortable. And Mac keyboards are so nice to begin with that I just don't like the idea of any modification to their feel. But I will say that this cover fits the keyboard perfectly.

Obligatory Learning Curve

ZAW, Amazon
30 March 2010
  • Summary: This is my first experience with a keyboard protector. I hadn't ever typed on one before, but didn't imagine there would be any issues. Well, typing feels quite a bit different than with a 'naked' keyboard. It seems a lot more effort is required to press the individual keys, at least during the break-in phase. I'm still in that phase after a month of use. I can't type nearly as fast and end up making more mistakes due to skipped letters (not pressed hard enough).
