    Hey,

    What's the verdict on modern screen protectors, such as the Moshi iVisor Pro?

    Currently toying with hopping from a 2013 Macbook Air (with it's lovely lack of screen reflection) to a 2015 Macbook Pro.

    Last time I considered a Macbook Pro and looked into screen protectors I found myself knee-deep in very mixed feedback.

    Thanks in advance you lovely people.

    It's shame to put anything on the retina screen. Not worth the drop in visual quality

    I have the Moshi iVisor Pro for the 2017. First Mac and the weird screen resolution was really messing with my eyes, straining them. So after a whole lot of google'ing I realized it's a common issue with retina display (weird, cause I've never heard of anyone mentioning this before), and one of the solutions someone had was trying a screen protector. Since I only had 14days to figure out the issue, or return it, I invested in the screen protector. I also found an article on macrumors explaining how the "default" scale makes text blurry. So I guess it wasn't just me.

    But back to your question, yea, I have it on the 15" and I love it. Especially with the space gray, the screen protector kind of makes the screen match the space gray look when the display is off. Another thing I love is that it keeps finger prints off the screen. It does add a little, and I mean very little but enough to notice if you're OCD like that, grainy look to the display. As for the colors, I can't tell much loss in color. If there is, it's very very minimal. I've had it on for almost a week. My wife wasn't able to tell the difference. I had to show her the cut out where the webcam is for her to believe me that the screen protector is on.

    I've heard these are reusable, and washable. I won't be washing them and reapplying them, rather just get a new one, but as for reusable, it did take me 2 or 3 tries to get it aligned correctly and those 2 to 3 times I was able to peel off without any issue.
