    Just received one of these in the mail yesterday. So far I am very pleased. It fits perfectly and is clear in between the keys to allow for backlighting if you use it. The only downside is that the keys are printed on with pre-Lion layout. This doesn't bother me though since I know F3 "expose" is actually mission control and F4 "dashboard" is actually launchpad. All other keys are as they should be.

    BTW I ordered it on OCT 28th and received it NOV 5th.

    Moshi's keyguard is really good. I bought one for my girlfriend, and it's pretty clear.

    For myself, I got one from eBay. I believe it was this brand, and it was pretty clear as well.

    And yes, I noticed that some contact is made between the keys and the keyguard when closing my MBP. It closes fine, but sometimes there's an imprint of my keyboard on my screen.. (My hands get pretty sweaty.. :p)

    I have a KB cover and I like it a lot. It hasn't slowed down my typing on my 2011 15" MBP at all and doesn't noticeably mark the screen, not anymore than than keys alone do anyway. Mine doesn't have the key characters printed on it... it's see-through. It stays in place really well except for a small bubble near the spacebar that's hardly a problem.

    Doesn't matter which brand you get, it'll all be the same. Only reason Moshi's popular is because Apple offers them via store. Any ebay product will suit your needs.
