Good, but Far from Great
on March 1, 2016
I love the smooth matte texture and the comfort this gives my fingers after typing for long periods of time. It feels great, the font is admirable, and this is an essential within my collection of computer accessories.
The biggest con is that it stretches in time. After about 6 months of use, it began to loose it's snug fit and shift slightly while typing, causing me to make mistakes and decrease my typing speed. There are also shallow folds on the edges from extra material which is unflattering, and exacerbates the shifting and sliding around. It used to fit perfect. Because of this flaw, I would prefer to replace this with a new keyboard cover about twice a year, but I will not do that, so in the future I will buy a different company's product with hopes for better results. This may not bother some people, but is very very frustrating for me personally.
This may have happened as a direct or indirect result of me tossing this keyboard cover in my laptop case or backpack about 1-3 times a month. It does not survive mildly rough handling.
I am also disappointed with the translucency of the white key letters. I have a rather clear outline of the keys from the lit keyboard light, but the letters allow less light to pass through, so in the dark it's very challenging to see the letters -- to which I just take the cover off. Again, this may be a personal preference, but I wish there was some way of knowing this before buying.
