    For a snap on shell it covers as much as practical

    The differences between snap on cases is small, usually how well they do or do not cover the back corners and hinge area. The Speck case covers as much as you can without hindering port access or hinge function. Speck only lists Onyx Black on their website but was able to purchase the "matte" Black at my Local Best Buy. It has a little more grip to it than the glossy Onxy Black model, however still not as much as the "Rubberized" finish of the 3+ yr old Speck Case it's replacing. For the protection it offers while still allowing my MBP to slip easily in and out of any soft sleeve or back pack, it's money well spent.

    Tight fit; nonslip surface

    This item was on sale because it fits the earlier 2016 Apple MacBook Pro but not the current model. The black color allows my Mac to go places incognito until I do a startup and the lighted apple on the lid shows through just enough not to annoy users of lesser computers. The Speck Shell fits the computer tightly, almost like a second skin. I anticipate that the computer will be well protected from scratches, but I suspect the shell would break/crack if I dropped the computer or hit it hard against a solid surface. The nonslip surface provides me with a reassuring grip.

    Excellent fit and finish, and less gloss.

    This is my second Speck Case for my MBP, first one lasted almost 4 years of in and out of a back pack pretty much daily. Fit is great as protected as any basic snap on cover out there unless yo go with something that will ad a noticeable amount of bulk and weight to your laptop. Just wish they still offered the original Satin (matte) finish like my old one. This one is not as slippery as the gloss but not as grippy as the old satin finish.

    this is a nice hard shell plastic case with a transluscent black matte finish. it snaps on to a 15" macbook pro nice and tight and protects from scratches and dings while still allowing access to ports. rubber feet keep it in place while working at a desk. seems durable without being overkill. makes my mac look much more discreet and stealthy too for what it's worth. get it, unless you need something more burly, in which case i would go for the UAG case.

    I am a DJ and use my Mac frequently. I pay attention to all cosmetic details in my setup and this thing made it all tie together. The color scheme of my setup was thrown off by my Mac and I needed something to make it all flow and be cosmetically great looking. Now everything matches and I get compliments on how everything looks!

    Great hard shell

    This is a good MacBook Pro cover. It is very basic in design and self-clips onto the edges of the MacBook Pro. If you were wanting to apply decals to the top of your MacBook, it would be difficult to see them because the color is dark. This cover is firm and does a good job of shielding the computer from nicks and dings. I don't think it will do much for a fall though. I don't think any cover will protect from a fall, unless it's made with foam.

    Better than Apple's $100 shell

    I went back and forth between the Apple Store and Best Buy trialing out the different wrap cases. I chose this one base purely on the look (black), texture (grips very well), fit, and ease of application. I've had it now for a couple months. Looks new still...does not collect marks easily. Took it off the MacBook Pro 15 retina and there are no marks on it at all. This is an amazing, easy to put on case. Price is so good! Enjoy.

    I was taking a trip and wanted something to help protect my laptop while on the plan just incase something happened. The investment paid off as while on the plane someone spilled some coffee on it. luckily the lid was shut and it was not a large spill so the coffee sat on the case just long enough for me to wipe it off. The case did what its job and has been on my computer for a little over a month now.

    I have read other reviews on different colors about how the case is fragile and crack prone, but i got mine on with no problem and it looks very good. I would suggest either this one or the black one of the same brand, as both are very sleek. The Apple logo shines through the case and looks very stylish with the white on black sort of contrast. Overall great case.

    Cost-effective protection for your MacBook

    If you travel with your beautiful MacBook, it is going to get damaged. And nothing ruins a beautiful Apple product like an unsightly scratch. The Speck case is easy to install (albeit somewhat less easy to remove) and provides simple protection with little change to the computer’s size or weight. This is the first accessory I buy for any MacBook.

    I've never had a protective cover for any of my MacBooks before, man was I dumb. I love this thing. My only complaint with it is that when I purchased it, the box that it came in was pretty beat. Frankly it looked like packs of wild dogs drug it through the street. However the actual shells were in pristine condition, so no big deal.

    Very well done Speck, does what it was designed for. Protects my laptop from all scratches and looks good while doing it. It is very sturdy, without being bulky. I love that the Apple logo lights up thru the shell cover when in use. I also like that when closed the laptop looks like an ordinary laptop, thus keeping prying eyes at bay.

    I've used other protective cases for my devices and none of them compare to Speck products! I've never had a Speck case break or wear down over time. 6 years later, and the first Speck case I ever purchased for an old computer is still in good condition, no cracks. That more than makes up for the slightly high initial price.

    This case fits really well. The only thing I would have like to have seen was a slightly different material so it couldn't slide. At the same time then you wouldn't be able to stow it away if it was like a cell phone case that was anti-skid material. Expensive but well worth the money to protect your expensive MacBook Pro

    The day after I had bought my MacBook, I realized that it would scratch, scuff and dent easily if anything happened. I had bought this hard case shell to protect it from them as well as be able to put stickers on the outside to customize it to my liking. Needless to say, This case can take a beating!

    I brought this when I got my IPAD and at the time, I did not have a Mac, so I used this as an opportunity to pre-game a Mac Book Pro setup and it was an awesome experience. No one has it and when I open it up, people are like, is that a mini Mac because IPAD's doesn't look like that, lol. Got 'em

    This might be the finest Speck product I have ever bought. The fit on the 15'' MacBook Pro is tight and the color is perfect: a clean black matte. I have used Speck products in the past and found them to be not quite as protective as Incase ones, but this one is just right for the computer.

    Every Apple device I own goes straight into a Speck made case. They offer AMAZING protection and not too much bulk. I normally use the Satin finish cases, but this time I figured I'd give this finish a chance ad I absolutely love it. This finish is lighter and the few is amazing!!!!

    Great Protection for Nice Outside Aluminum

    This is great if looking to protect the outside of your laptop. I wouldn't purchase this if looking for drop protection as my other Speck products (i.e. iPad & iPhone). If you're planning on selling or trading I'd recommend because the nice outside finish won't get scratched or other blemishes.

    This is my 3rd speck case for our family MacBooks. We have a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Retina 13 and 15. This cover gives scratch protection with minimal noticeable thickness added. It does not afford any protection for shocks but we have bags to carry the laptops for protection.
