KB Covers Macbook Pro Keyboard Cover Review & Giveaway!

Review of KB Covers for MacBook/Air/Pro Keyboard Cover

OK, So I am a bit of a neat freak.

Smudge Nazi. Shine Aficionado, What have you.

So Ever since I bought my MacbookPro (6 months ago now maybe?) I have been hunting and searching for new ways to keep it spotless, which is nearly impossible in my house (I have 3 boys all under the age of 4) but that doesn’t stop me from trying.

So at this point I have tried a TON of keyboard covers, protectors, whatever you want to call them. All of them have been satisfactory, with minor discomfort while typing. However, I think I have stumbled on the HOLY GRAIL of keyboard covers!!!

I started using KB Covers brand protectors about a month ago, and the second I unwrapped that sucker and stuck it on my MBP, I noticed how freaking awesome it was. All the other keyboard covers I had tried needed to be massaged and worked into the keys, just to be ‘somewhat’ comfortable, I could still tell that my keyboard had a cover on it, and I had learned to deal with that. But with the KB Covers… I laid it over my keyboard and it practically MELTED INTO PLACE!! It was stunning. I was like “OMG no way!!”.

Then I gave it the ultimate test. Typing!!!

Lo and behold, It typed like a dream!! I could not tell that my keyboard was covered at all, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a keyboard cover!! Not to mention it looked pretty stylish!

My favorite was the Checkerboard Keyboard Cover simply because it was colored black, like my keys, and had the letters/numbers/keys printed on them, and it also had a mighty slick looking ’rounded corner’ look to it, meaning the keys have little gray round corners on them and it looks awesome!

So not only does it fit AMAZINGLY, look cool, but it also FEELS GREAT to the fingers! It gives you an added ‘grip’ to typing which I had felt the factory macbook pro keyboard kind of lacked, because it was kind of ‘hard and plastic’ feeling when you type on the bare bones factory keyboard, and it felt weird when my fingernails scraped against the hard plastic feeling.

Again, I had learned to live with that feeling when I first bought the macbook, but Today, I am happy to say that I have found the ultimate Keyboard Cover, and it is good.

I definitely can’t go back, after I tried the KB Covers. My search is over.

I hope you found this review Insightful! Hopefully it will help your fingers find a comfy place to type!

I would give the KB Covers keyboard Cover a 5 out of 5 Stars!!!! My fingers couldn’t be happier!

You will not be disappointed with this Cover, Give it a try!

    Hey! I’ve followed the steps to see if i win this thing.

    I’ve used some keyboard covers, and didn’t like any of them. Sure it’s useful, but, sometimes i have to write big amounts of text, and with the covers, it feels like i’m touching a plastic bag.

      I know what you mean man! I had that same problem! I assure you, that these covers in no way feel like a plastic bag, or plastic anything for that matter!

      It feels like tight grippy heaven!!

      Thanks everyone for participating! Good luck!

    I can’t stand stuff on my keyboard either. Started cleaning the keyboard for my iMac the other day. Yuck! The see through plastic doesn’t hide any dirt.

    Hey Andy, these look awesome. I’ve been looking for a way to protect my Macbook as well. I have 2 kids under 3 so I know what you’re going through.

      Thanks bro! Yeah they are definitely handfulls, but they bring so much joy to our lives!

      Even if it is dirty joy that gets smudged on our screens haha!

      Good luck!

        Now if I could find a good way to keep the screen clean, I’d be in Heaven.

        And yes, the kids are worth all the trouble and then some.
