    Fancy alcantara fabric, but.....

    Bought this for my new surface pro. I love the fabric on the keyboard. Feels really nice and lux. This is a good keyboard attachment and serves the purpose. Typing is alright, track pad is not bad, could be better. Occasional misses here and there.. Trackpad is not good as a macbook or probably any good laptop trackpads out there. But i will take that for the portability and feel. After all, this is an attachment keyboard cover. All said, the build quality of the track pad is very questionable. 1) The track pad click is not consistent on the corners/ anywhere. Eg. If you click on bottom corners it clicks better, click top right and left corners and it is harder to click. It seems like an outdated track pad system. 2) The worst thing about this type cover is there is an annoying track pad rattle.If you flip the type cover upside down or shake it once upside down, you can hear that annoying click sound- as if something is loose inside the track pad. First i thought it was normal, then i checked the macbook trackpad and it didn't make any rattle or click sounds when flipped upside down. So i did some googling and found this used to be an issue with the surface pro 3 and 4 covers. Somebody mentioned replacing it solved the issue for them. So i went to best buy store today hoping to replace. The replacement had the same issue. I checked the display keyboards and all the new covers they had in stock, flipping upside down and shaking each and listening to each of them. Each and everyone of those had the same issue. So this is the way it is? I don't think this can be justified at this price.This is probably some serious design flaw microsoft overlooked.

    I balked at the price of this, but I couldn't deny the other reviews either. I wasn't overwhelmed with other keyboard choices, and I know I didn't want to rely on the pen or virtual keyboard, so I begrudgingly opted for this one. It's a beautiful keyboard as far as the covering is concerned. They call it "Alcantara" which means nothing to me, but it feels like soft felt. It connects to the Surface seamlessly, and you only have to bring it near and the magnets pull it in and align on their own. It covers the Surface screen perfectly as well. The keyboard is backlit, but only stays on for a few seconds after the last key press. This may be a setting, but I'm fine with is and really seems to have zero effect on the battery. The keys feel fantastic, and I'm a fat handed ham fist typer and this never feels like it's going to break or bend. The trackpad is awesome and it does "click" when you push to execute a left or right mouse button push. The only concern I really have is longevity. The edge of the keyboard where the seam of the covering lies reminds me of the edge of those trapper keepers when I was in school, and that's where the bulk of the damage would occur. I hope that doesn't happen here, not that it's being rough handled.

    mostly good, few glitches

    I bought this keyboard with my surface pro since all my previous computers had one and I am used to typing on a keyboard rather than a tablet screen. I use it every day and travel with it. The great features include its light weight, dark color (does not show dirt as much), and the fact that it snaps easily onto the tablet. There are few negatives. Few times the keyboard did not respond but the tablet's keyboard still worked. When I turned the computer off and on, the problem got fixed. Few times, when I typed the key "y" I got "z" instead and the numbers did not respond, instead I was getting the upper case symbols event though the caps or the caps lock were not pressed. Again turning the computer off and on fixed this problem. The third problem was when the cover for "a" key came off but I found it in my briefcase, snapped it back on and it is fine. Even with these minor glitches, I still love it and am glad that I bought it.

    I owned the regular black typecover with my Surface Pro 4. I decided to upgrade to the pro signature series typecover. The difference is quite significant in quality, comfortablility, and design. Immediately you notice the fabric that is used to line this keyboard. It is very soft and durable and easy to clean. Functionally, the keyboard buttons are slightly larger and makes it easier to type, I felt that the original keyboard was a little too small and had some difficulty with it. The track pad is slightly larger as well but the material (glass I believe) seems to make it feel more responsive and smooth. The function buttons have been rearranged, adding a screen brightness +/- in addition to the keyboard backlight adjustment. Overall to me this is a great upgrade and I am very satisfied with my decision to purchase it.

    Love but missing a key feature

    I started off with the original Microsoft Surface Pro that was before you could angle the keyboard, it had a smaller mouse pad that was plastic and the keys were much closer together. This keyboard is a marked improvement over the original type cover as well as the type cover 2 and both the spacing of the keys the quietness of typing especially in quiet meetings, and the mouse pad is amazing. One of the best I've ever used on any device. However these upgraded Alcantara keyboards are missing one key feature that would make that would make it the best keyboard on the market and that is backlit keys.

    Great keyboard for surface pro, but pricey

    I purchased this for my surface pro 4. The fabric covering feels great, I wouldnt use while eating though and I'm sure it's not a great match and will stain from greasy fingers. The BB employee said it well, you spent a lot of money on your surface because it's a premium machine, this is a premium keyboard, treat it as such. I had a surface pro one, and let's just say this keyboard is light years ahead of that. Close to a regular keyboard experience but very thin and light. Cobalt to me is the best color, cool but still professional.

    The same old Type Cover, but sinificantly improved

    Comparing with the previous model, the new Type Cover feels a bit softer on typing and there is a significant improvement over the track pad. Some of the function keys (F1, F2, F7 onwards) are slightly re-purposed, making it more intuitive. The Alcantara material has a nice welcome feel, however I think it may accumulate grease over a period of time. Also, I found the new type cover shows signs of bending at the attachment area on regular use. Overall, the product is good; it would have been far more useful, if it had a finger print reader as in one of the premium models backdated in 2015.

    Nice Keybpard, but touchbad is lacking

    The keyboard itself is nice. Feel and travel of the keys is just about right. It looks good too and the Alcantara ic comfortable on the palms. The trackpad however is lacking. It is small, a bit too small and input is a bit hit or miss. I thought perhaps the first one I had was flawed, so I exchanged it for another, but it is exactly the same. I would still recommend it, because they keyboard itself is good and it is pretty much the only option, but I would say 4/5 for the keyboard 2/5 for the touchpad giving it an average score of 3/5
