  • Easily broken

    The bottom part to this case has completely fallen apart. The things that keep it on have fallen off and now it doesn't stay on at all. But, the top part of the case has had no issues and is staying on well. Overall too expensive for such a horribly built case.
  • Not Durable

    The rear clasps break too easily because there's not enough surface area for them. They're too weak and under normal use they will eventually break (within a few months if you're lucky). Happens to everyone I know. Maybe if the case was $10-$20 I wouldn't care and would buy another... But at $50, it should last longer than 3 months.

    This case is not meant to protect your laptop from being bumped around or dropped. It's not going to hold up through rough use (being thrown around in a backpack that doesn't have a laptop sleeve, dropped when carrying, etc.) This case WILL protect your laptop against scratches and looks very nice. I will continue to order a new clear or black speck case every six months or so to decorate before installing on my laptop. For anyone looking for a product that will increase the durability and longevity of their macbook, I suggest that you look elsewhere. This is purely a scratch protecting accessory.

    This terrible case broke very easily. I had two and the corners broke from gently setting my laptop down. Once the corners are broken it will not stay on. I also have 2 family members that had their corners easily broken as well.

    Another experience of broken rear tabs, wish I'd seen the reviews first. Case is broken after three months of very gentle use. Serious design flaw! Came here hoping to see a replacement offer from Speck, or at least an improved model. I'll be looking for something else to replace now.

    I purchased this case when I bought my new Mac Book Pro in Nov. It is now June and it is totally worthless. The bottom and top are made of cheap plastic which breaks very easily. The bottom piece is almost worthless after this short time. I know it is to protect your Mac but at 50 bucks it should las longer than 6 months.

    Love the design and look of the case, the problem is the rear clasp's they snap too quick, i would be tempted to purchase another but at $50USD its too much for the low quality of the case. i think they should last more than 3-4 months of light use.

    I was a little worried about the durability of this case after reading all these reviews. I have a Speck satin finish case for my iPhone that I like, although after a couple years of taking it in and out of my pocket, the finish has come off on most of the case. The finish on this case seems to be the same, but I don't anticipate it getting as much abrasion as the iPhone does going in and out of pockets. Also, that iPhone case has cracked near the bottom due to me repeatedly taking it on and off to put an audio cable in that never fit right.

    So why am I talking about an iPhone case when this is a MacBook Pro retina case review? Well, my only guess so far is that the durability problems people are having is related to taking this case off all the time, since this usage led to the failure mode of my iPhone case. The case itself is very thin, and the clips on the back where the case mounts to the computer are thin, but everything seems to be strong enough for every day use so far. Time will tell of course.

    Aside from those concerns, the case itself is of very high quality, the finish is nice, and it fits the computer like a glove. The case doesn't interfere with typing or ports in any way. The color (steel blue) is more gray than blue it seems, except under certain lighting conditions, but it complements the computer very well. And the matte finish makes the lighted Apple cutout on the top cover look a little blurry around the edges, which looks cool.

    I was also worried that the case would interfere with the laptop's cooling efficacy, since I do a lot of heavy computational work and the fans are usually whirring, but the case hasn't seemed to affect this at all.

    If you're on the fence, I'd definitely give this case a try and see if it works for you. I'm pretty happy with it so far :)

    The price is steep on these cases. I wait for sales, discounts, christmas time etc. Lucky me, I got one for Christmas 13 but like many of the other reviews, the corners on my smart shell broke off of the bottom of the case within three months of getting it cause the bottom to just... fall off.

    HOWEVER, I contact Speck's customer service using that handy "chat" feature and within 15 minutes I had a warranty approval, a shipping label and my old case was being shipped back to speck .The only question they asked was my order number. My brand new one arrived today.

    This is why i will continue to buy their products. Customer Service says a LOT about a company. Thanks Speck!
