champster: this case sucks I can't get it off my lid!
James Woodcock: I haven't noticed anything like that personally and I use the case off and on often.
Manuel Arredondo: ive read a few reviews in which people report mold forming inside the case. have you had this problem?
Nicholas Neumann: Great review! You made me buy it!
kctess5: Amazing story: my mac fell of the roof of my car going 50mph (I forgot it there), and this case saved it's life. There is a dent in the screen where it landed, but there is no scratching because the case took the brunt of the damage. I will replace the screen because it reminds me of my stupidity, but the computer still works great.
gobbo241: Thats the best talk up of a plastic case I have ever heard, you would be a deadly salesman.
Siddique Desai: Where can i buy this product in UK. I've searched on google and all that it does is redirects me US sites to buy. Even on Apple's site the product isn't available.
nsbkaizen: Thanks, it's reassuring to know the aluminum is durable enough for the tabs. Looks like I'll be ordering this- can't wait.
James Woodcock: I have taken the cover off many times and not scratched the MacBook Pro at all.
nsbkaizen: Do the tabs scratch the aluminum finish? That is my biggest concern with these hard covers that attach directly to the computer. For this reason, I'm considering either a "skin" or simply a sleeve. I do like the look of the Speck...
Omar Jamil: why is my satin seethru causing a burning smell with my retina?
JustMattys: I'm looking for something like this, however i don't want people to see the Apple logo at all.
anupkumarrao: Thanks for this review. Helped me decide to get this and I love it ! Everything you have reviewed is perfectly accurate !
manpreeth oftech: u just got a new suscriber
Bowie Salvatore: how to you take it out without scratching or damaging the aluminium lid
James Woodcock: Yes absolutely fine, certainly hasn't caused me any issues in this regard.
Josh Freiermuth: So glad I love this product!
Frankie Palmisano: What about the 13 inch retina?
Frankie Palmisano: Oh, would that make any difference with the 13 inch?
James Woodcock: The microphones are actually located under the speaker grill so are not obstructed.
Frankie Palmisano: Question, the dual microphones on the side of the MacBook are covered by this case, does that diminish quality at all? Thanks!!!
miiiiicro: I wish the case didn't show the apple logo at all when it is backlit. Then it would be perfect. Like the incipio feather, but they don't make a case for the 13 rMBP :(
NOSDRAHC: Do they make these for the 13" retina MB Pro also?
LIZARD CHEEKS: Is it difficult to remove?, when removing once a month?
LIZARD CHEEKS: Does this case leave black markings on the corners?
DontTouchTheWatch: What's the difference between smartshell and seethru?
Screenfreak Productions: i dont know which series to get on speck website do u know differences?
James Woodcock: I have tried various USB devices and had no problems accessing the ports with this protective cover attached.
TheBrlf: Does it allow USB devices to go all the way in or does the case get in the way?
Miguel Langarica: Great Review - Help me allot in my choice.. thx
James Woodcock: Thanks :)
Caleb Shifflett: Awesome review, James! Perfect camera movements and inflection of commentary! I will have to take a look at this case when I purchase my RMBP in the nearing month. Thanks for sharing! A new subscriber here!
Eindbaasetc: Whoa, that cover makes it look even sexier than it already is.
Good review btw!
James Woodcock: Thank you :)
matt lim: Great Review :)
James Woodcock: Thank you for your kind comments :)
Speak Apple: Great review! I was against the whole 'covering up the beauty of an Apple product', but it looks like this does a good job in terms of protection and style! I second the more video reviews comment ;-)
James Woodcock: Thank you :) I review a lot of different technologies and games, so I am sure I will get to some more console games in particular in the future.
tenspur: You do great reviews James, should do more on console games and other products.
