Top critical review
Impressions both first and after one day of usage (3.28.16)
on March 28, 2016
I feel like this is one of those products where you legitimately get what you pay for. I absolutely love the fact that the apple logo is cut out (it's the main reason I purchased this). The covers are true to color but have quite an interesting texture to them. I find it pretty cool and don't mind it because it helps with the slip but it was a surprise. It's not the typical clear and then matte coated covers like the ones you'd usually find. Very interesting... I absolutely love the keyboard cover though. The fit is absolutely perfect and it's comfy to type! I am having no issues with it whatsoever! Although, the light will not shine through the letters; the light shines through on the side so you can see the keys but not what they are. I'm fine with it but for those who are not too familiar with the keys, it might be an issue if you type at night.
My issue is one but a big enough deal that I have to dock off stars. The fitting of the covers are NOT good. The covers barely fit my computer! I can get the covers on but with a struggle because it's so tight! The bottom part is just stuck on now because of how tight it is. Maybe it'll stretch out with usage? I think because of this, technically not my entire laptop is protected. The top edges of my computer is showing and I don't like that at all. I think it's because there wasn't enough of the dent for room for the black rubber part on the bottom. For the top part, the edges latch on and is mostly fine but it is not flat to the screen so there is a gap around where the cutout is. This makes me worried about the dust that it can trap and I don't want anything getting in there. Because of how coated the color is, I wouldn't be able to see well if something were on the inside.
Long story short: I love the keyboard cover, I say it is good quality. I really love the logo cutout (which is why I am not returning it). BUT the quality of the computer case is poor quality.
One month later: the cover says that there is ventilation room on the cover but my laptop heats up quickly with this case. I have been using it just the same (if not less actually) and my computer heats up a good amount. Can't say I'm totally surprised because of how small the slit it but also how thick the case is.
