    It was scratched the first day I had it. I was disappointed and thought it was just bad luck, but I've had it three months and it has already cracked. I'll be needing a new case soon. For $50, it isn't worth it.

    Just as others have posted, the case cracks. When it was brand new out of the box, it already had scratches. I exchanged it immediately and the replacement had scratches out of the box as well. Now, 4 months later, I need a new case. After I foot the shipping cost to get it to the manufacturer, they get to decide wether these cracks fall under "normal wear and tear" or if they'll send me a new one "at no cost to me".. =/ Save yourself the headache.

    First, I absolutely love this case. I don't know why so many people complain about it. I guess everyone has different thoughts. Yes, i agree that it is a bit pricey, but there is a warranty on it. It snaps on in all the right places and doesn't come off unless you really try to get it off. Yes there are a few scratches on the plastic but not deep ones that you can notice by looking at your laptop. Nothing is perfect so relax people. The color of the case is the exact color shown on the website. I know a lot of online stores don't show the exact color. But speck, did a fantastic job at that. I am a college student and i am constantly using my laptop every single day in classes and i have no problems with it. Overall, I'm extremely happy with this purchase.

    Bout this product on a Saturday afternoon and was amazed to find out the product had shipped an hour later! I didn't even think it would go out until Monday! The product arrived very quickly in quality packaging. As for the product itself, the material seems great and durable and i loved the color. It also fits like a glove, My only complaint is that i think the bottom part could use a clip in the middle by the track pad, its a tad bit loose there but nothing that i can't live with. Overall i love the product and think it will do an excellent job protecting my Air from scratches and scuffs.

    When purchasing a computer I knew that I had to also purchase a case for it. I had heard mainly good things of the Speck brand and it's protection, so I was able to choose it with confidence. After 3 months of use, the corners began to crack and then break off entirely from the snapping and unsnapping that is required to clean your case, as it is instructed. I plan to soon send it in to get a new one, using the warranty that (THANK GOODNESS) they supply with the purchase of a case. The outer shell is great at ultimately protecting the outside from scratches, but I am overall not happy with the purchase that I have made.

    This case is awful. Unfortunately, the "SmartShell" is kind of necessary for the MacBook Air, as the normal hardshell is too heavy and the display tips back or closes on itself under the weight. This isn't as much of a problem with the SmartShell, but it cracked in a matter of days with very little/light use. Once one corner cracked and became loose the rest started cracking. The color is great, and it should protect my Air from scratches, but it's like carrying around an eggshell. Definitely not good quality for the price.

    My 11" Macbook Air went from its original packaging, directly into the Speck SmartShell. I've gotten nothing but complements on the shiny red color I selected. I feel confident that this will protect my precious device from any nicks or scraps, while making it uniquely mine and demonstrates to the world that I have selected a wonderful computer.
