There are two factors inherent in the silicone overlays that I accept as coming with the territory when you want the added protection. Key movement is more restricted with the drag of the silicone rubber versus the smooth plastic original keys. If you are a speed typist, you may find this unacceptable, even given the added protection. I type between 50-60 WPM and while the silicone friction slows me down a bit, I can live it. I've had my overlay a couple weeks and perhaps the friction will reduce with use, but again, this is not a big issue for me.
The other complaint of overlays are the ridges of the molded rubber keys, which can also slow typing. Again, I consider this inherent in these types of products, since the walls of the silicone rubber keys collapse but do not depress into the board as the original keys. However, the combination of the silicone friction and ridges of the keys when depressed, does slow your typing down a bit and takes some getting used to.
Final comments: I find this product ideal for when I'm traveling, especially on a plane next to the guys who orders hot coffee during a turbulent flight. The few dollars this overlay costs is more than worth the peace of mind.Read more ›
For the clear, it is at best, closer to about 75% clear. I know how to touch type so it is not a huge issue. The light on the keyboard also helps with the visual best if you need to to see each key. In some places it floats a little above each key, not entirely sitting down but does not feel like an air pocket bubble over that key.
This particular model fits directly inside the keyboard well, my last one had a large over lap out onto the area around the keyboard. I suspect it would also fit the external mac keyboard.
As for feel, this does feel more rubber than plastic. It is a softer touch than I'm used to.
The skin did have a small manufacturing flaw on the top left that did not interfere with useage. I did try to contact the company as they had requested in my packing slip, but they never replied.
