    I've had it for about 2 months now, running on a Linux machine. Linux picked up nearly all the specialty keys, which I didn't expect. The keyboard itself has a fantastic feel to it. The keys snap well, if you know what I mean. It just types well. The quality of the keyboard is very nice. It just feels good to use. It's nice spacing between the keys, so i find myself making fewer errors in typing. Low profile keys might have something to do with it as well. It's a very sleek keyboard with a tight design taking up as little desk space as possible but still having a great full size keyboard. No extra space wasted. Over all, A+. If I had any complaints it might be the contrast of the keys. I'm not a pure typist and never have been. I hunt and peck at a high rate of speed and need to find my spot frequently from sight (80 words a minute maybe???) There is room for a little improvement if they keep going with this product line. Maybe more battery capacity so they can add lighted keys? It would also be nice if they made a non bluetooth wireless model with a dongle, which I would have opted for more than likely. Never a serious fan of bluetooth devices in general, even though I've had 0 problems with this particular device. Wales up a little slowly on boot maybe. I think they'd do themselves a favor and sell a lot more of these things. It's truly the best PC keyboard on the market, hands down. The only one that comes close in my opinion is the Logitech solar powered keyboard, but that's nice in a different kind of way. The Microsoft Surface keyboard is pure elegance with a high quality build. Many of us are willing to pay more for quality. Hats off to you Microsoft.

    Died in 48 days - Bad Quality Control

    Posted
    Redhead

    Purchased on 12/30/2016 and died on 2/17/2017. This keyboard died randomly and stops allowing keys to be pressed with shift key on the right shift key with the underscore. Problem is it's nice if it's your sort of thing. However, if you have any issues it's expensive. It has AAA batteries which requires a cost repetitively and the power button has bad placement. I really liked the keyboard but it's comical at best to troubleshoot a keyboard for close to two hours (granted Microsoft Support is non-existent and just asked for useless information repeatedly or for you to reboot a computer). I'm technical and even for me the more rediculous troubleshooting wasn't able to fix the odd errors I had as it's a faulty product. Overall I wouldn't recommend this to anyone as it's super expensive, not practical and there's better options across the board (I really like it) but this keyboard is not designed to last (it's not like I'm hammering away on the thing either).

    Excellent keyboard, great feel

    This is a great keyboard and has the best overall feel I've ever used on a PC before. I can type extremely fast and accurate on it, and the keys have the perfect amount of travel. My only caveat is that on my PC I had to purchase a USB Bluetooth dongle (I use the Plugable 2.0 USB adapter), which although works perfectly in Windows 10, it does not work to select bios options (e.g. to boot from an external drive). This isn't a big hindrance, however, it does mean that until you get working bluetooth drivers you will need another keyboard. I keep a spare logitech wireless with dongle which does work with the bios. Even with that annoyance for my setup, it wouldn't deter me from purchasing or recommending this keyboard.

    They keyboard is very nice and responsive. I enjoy typing on it. Keyboard spacing is nice. The one issue I have experience with the keyboard, and I know others have commented on the issue is that there seems to be an intermittent power loss to the keyboard, especially when the computer goes to sleep. It happens randomly where there will be no power to the keyboard at all. I'll hit a few keys and eventually the keyboard wakes up. Not sure what that is all about. I would give it 5 starts if it wasn't for that issue.

    I bought the Surface Keyboard as a compliment to my Surface Pro 2017 to use with my Surface Dock to have a desktop like experience. I have been using the keyboard for a couple weeks now and love the way it types. I used to have an Apple keyboard and loved the way the keys were easy to type and were flatter for faster typing and this keyboard beats that! FYI you can use this keyboard with anything Bluetooth.

    I still have my original IBM keyboard. Although not as "clicky", this keyboard has a predictable feel to it. So far, I have bought 7 of them. Most of them are connected to Intel NUC's. I have built. Another one is connected to an Intel Compute Stick that uses a 4K 70-inch Sony TV (Black Friday Special) as the monitor. Using the Bluetooth feature, the computers are not physically tethered to the device. What can I say? It just works.

    Bluetooth Latency

    This keyboard is EXACTLY what I wanted aesthetically. Unfortunately, it just didn't seem to work with my computer. I don't have Bluetooth natively on my computer and was using a USB dongle, so I'm not sure who's to blame, but there was some aggrivating latency. I'm a pretty fast typer and use a lot of "hotkey" commands in the programs I use. The latency proved too much to deal with so I had to return it.

    Nice Wireless Keyboard

    I got this to use with my Surface Pro 4. It took a couple of attempts to get it to sync, but once it did, it worked just fine. I like having a desktop keyboard with a number pad. This worked great and the typing experience is good. Didn't see any lag when typing. Another feature I like about this keyboard is that since it is wireless, there is less mess on my desk. I would recommend this as a good option for any windows computer that is docked or a desktop.
