    Low Quality

    I bought this case because not only was it on sale for $20 but I had read the great reviews. Although, I have only had this case for almost 2 weeks and the corners of the case are some how cracked and breaking. My laptop lives on my desk and on very little occasion I will bring it with me to class so I was shocked when I saw the damage. With that said, I feel that the material isn't either hard or sustainable enough. When I went to remove the case it was also a little complicated. I was scared that I was going to damage my laptop from trying so hard to remove the case. I will be returning this item.

    Overall I feel better having my macbook in this case. It will prevent scratches, but after the second attempt to clip it on (laptop needed a new logic board thus forcing me to remove the cover) a corner snapped off. Seems to be par for the course amongst owners of these things. The plastic degrades over time, but for me, it seemed like I had to force it to fit properly and got unlucky with the piece snapping off. It's small enough though and in the backside so I'll just ignore it. Like I said, this will prevent scratches and I like the subdued look of the Mac within the case, but other than that, don't expect much protection of any other kind.

    It's not a horrible case, it does do its basic job. I had a bit of difficulty getting it on at first, you really need to do it just right, not like the older cases they made. There wasn't much of a selection either, and it doesn't give it the greatest protection, but for something just to keep it from getting scratched or very minor bumps then the case is perfect. I would recommend getting some type of sleeve for the computer as well if you plan on bringing bringing it in a bag of any kind.

    This is the second one for my MacBook. Little tabs broke on the bottom within about six months. Only one I could find for the MacBook. Got a new one because of the broken tabs opened box when I got home a there was a huge scratch on the top. All I needed to replace was the bottom, so lesson learned check item at store.

    Be careful to look at label. These do not fit the most recent model purchased (2017). Now I’m needing to return for exchange. I asked employee who assisted me in my MACBOOK pro 15” purchase, obviously he didn’t know the correct case to model either. The model I purchased seem slightly thinner & slim.

    Good fit but doesn't last very long

    It is well made but the plastic doesn't last very long. It only lasted like 2 months I expect more than 2 months from Speck because they make really good cases. I'm very disappointed. I hope they improve their materials with long-lasting then I will definitely consider buying is again to protect my macbook.

    Average Shell Case for MacBook Pro Retina

    The Shell case is pretty average considering the price it is selling at. It is pretty average looking but fits perfectly fine. Case is made up of plastic and will break if there is big fall. Pretty confident it will last for more than 1 year

    Big screen and normal sized keyboard with separate number keypad which is nice. Computer is satisfactory. Windows 10 is a bear. The two don't work great together. But with some patience and research online you can figure out a way to navigate fairly easily.

    This is the second one I've purchased for my college student after a year of use the corners were all broken the case wouldn't stay on and the anti skid feet were missing but she wanted another because it was thin and lite!

    I kept having issues with one of the corners on the bottom popping off. Plus I wish it was a little lighter shade of gray to still see my sticker on the cover. I ended up returning it. Had better luck with a cheaper, "no-name" cover.

    New Mac purchaser and user. Couldn't wait to jump into the Mac Book experience so highly praised by friends and family. So far at 2 months, underwhelmed and disappointed. Forever the optimist, I'll keep searching to find what hooked them.

    While Speck products are usually up to quality, this product tends to crack and break after extended use. Even though this is made to protect computers, it ends up breaking itself.

    Does not Snap on Easily and I am concerned when I take case off there will be dust & debris collected underneath. Easily gets smudge marks on it which are difficult to get rid of.

    It's only been in place for a week. I try to take care of my stuff. There haven't been any incidents that would cause the computer outer surface to have been scratched, so what can I say?

    This is very flimsy construction and seems to wiggle a bit too much for my taste. It also will not fit my new MacBook Pro with touch bar as it is about 1" too wide.

    The color and fit of the product are great. I had it for a few weeks and one corner already broke off, so I wouldn't suggest if you are tough on your technology.

    Case if made of thin brittle plastic. Seems to protect against scratches but not much else. After a month a corner cracked off apparently from snagging a bed sheet.

    I thought that it would be a lot more sturdier than it actually is. Some of the sides chipped off within the 1st couple of days. Overall, I think it's an "ok" product.

    It Chips & Cracks

    Haven't found a case that doesn't chip and crack. Pick one up at the right price and these are worthwhile for about 6 months of frequent use.
