    So I just purchased the Moshi Palmguard and I received it in the mail today. I bough it "New" on Amazon, but it came in a package like this:

    At first I was kinda disappointed, but I could deal. Then I noticed the backside a tiny part of the adhesive is missing on the side:

    For people who have used this palmguard will I have problems with the edge peeling off since the adhesive on the uncovered edge seems like it already got some dust/lint stuck on it. Should I return it or should it adhere just fine?

    Also does this brand new generally come with the trackpad protector as well? Based on reviews on the Apple Store site it seems like it should, but mine doesn't include it..

    It came like that?:confused:

    Mine came packaged in a sleeve.

    Did you buy it from a 3rd party seller?

    Yes it was from a 3rd party seller on Amazon. The seller had good ratings, and the product was listed as new. I was pretty disappointed, but more disappointed about the functionality if it's not going to adhere well.

    Do you have any comments on adherence? Is it likely this won't stick well with the missing peel?

    I'd be concerned that the exposed part won't stick properly. It very well might work just fine, but if it were me, I'd return it.

    Thanks.. sigh. I shoulda just spent a few extra bucks on the Amazon one :\

    The seller wants me to ship it back before he'll refund me and he wants me to be responsible for the return shipping charges which are gonna be around $10 for something as oblong as this, kinda ridiculous when the whole product including shipping was only $18..

    well mine came in a designed cardboard sleeve from Moshi. with trackpad protector aswell. i hate the trackpad protector though. it works well, its a bit to small though and it gives the trackpad the same feel as the palmguard. that sucks, you loose the while glass feel.

    send it back, its weird it cost so much to send it. i paid 25€ for my brand new one. Feel sorry for ya man, sucks u got a bad one :(:(

    you got robbed, dude.

    file a complaint with amazon to force the clown to cover all shipping charges involved. you shouldnt be responsible for their blatant attempt to defraud you.
