Terrible Keyboard Protector, Wonderful Stray Hair Magnet
on May 4, 2010
In defense of the product, I only paid 0.99 for it, so what can I expect? First of all, it is important to note that this keyboard protector is NOT universal. I have less than a fifteen (it's just a small notebook--about 12 inches) inch laptop screen, and it was a very snug fit. The length of the product reached from the escape key to the beginning of the backspace key, and the material does not allow you to stretch it beyond a certain point. Also, if you want a protector that you are able to type through (as some keyboard covers allow you to do) this is not it. The material is very thick, and it is near impossible to will your fingers to type anything coherent while this cover is in place. Additionally, if you want to remove the cover, it is not a good idea to set it down on top of...oh...ANY KIND OF SURFACE KNOWN TO MAN! This cover somehow succeeds in attracting every piece of lint, every speck of dirt, and every strand of hair that is in your household--and when you get all of this debris on the cover's material, cleaning it off is pretty much impossible. And, if by the chance that you DO manage to get all of the gunk off the cover, getting it to bond back to your keyboard is absolutely out of the question. After wiping my protector with a VERY slightly damp towel that was free of loose fibers, it somehow lost its ability to bond to the keys, and I ended up just chunking it in the garbage. Unless you plan to use this product to remove the stray hairs from your bathroom floor, I do not suggest buying it. I know that it is difficult to resist the less-than-a-dollar price, but just TRUST ME ON THIS ONE! If you truly desire a protector for your keyboard, you will end up replacing this one after it inevitably fails, so why don't you just save your change and go ahead and buy the more expensive alternative? Because after you purchase this product, it will only leave you a dollar poorer, extremely frustrated, and asking yourself "Has it REALLY been that long since I mopped and/or vacuumed my floors?!"
Just don't buy it.
