    Good typing feel but a little cramped

    If you're going to be doing any kind of productivity work on the Surface Go, you'll want a keyboard. The onscreen keyboard is good for short inputs, but if you want to type up class notes, an email, or write a document, the onscreen keyboard gets tiring. Because the keyboard has to fit in the form factor for the Surface Go, it's a little smaller than the keyboards for the Surface Pro. The term T-Rex arms comes to mind. I feel like I have to keep my elbows in to type using a traditional home row style. Also, I wish they had some more music control buttons. There is a pause/play button on the function keys, but nothing to skip to the next song. I might try to find a 3rd party app to remap the PrtScn button to next song. With Windows Ink baked into the Surface Go, I don't really see the need for a PrtScn button. Overall, good keyboard. I'd pay the extra for the Alcantara one, the difference in feel when you're resting your wrists on the keyboard to type is noticeable.

    Great case, one issue that bugs me

    Posted
    Timothy

    I'd give it a perfect score if there wasn't one thing that just bugs me a bit. First the case feels great. The material is smooth and easy to clean. The buttons are responsive and feel great on the fingers. The keys are a bit cramped but you are using a 10" tablet so it's to be forgiven. My big issue is, when you flip the keyboard, so the keys are touching the back of the tablet and the cover is facing out, the contact points do not like up. One corner sticks out a little bit and it just doesn't make any sense. Why are the contact points symmetrical? Then if you are using the device as a tablet you would be able to hold it without touching the keys. I don't for some reason this just bugs me.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Likely your best option

    This keyboard is gorgeous, first off. The color is great, the material is fantastic, and it provides great protection for the front of the Surface Go. Is it worth this much money? Probably not, but if you're all in, you're all in. The key spacing is very small, similar to the iPad Pro's keyboard, but you get wider keys instead of wider spaces, which is great for some, but not necessarily for me. That said, the key travel is surprisingly good, and once you've adjusted to the size, you can move pretty easily. The trackpad is surprisingly large for the size of the keyboard, and it's smooth as butter.

    I'm typing this review on the new Surface keyboard. It is the perfect balance of being light weight AND solid enough to feel good when typing. The tactile feedback of the keys is great and the layout is right so, I can type quickly. I learned to type on an IBM Selectric in high school back before Duran Duran was popular so, I've used a variety of keyboards. This is the best keyboard on a portable device of it's type.

    The sensitivity of the mouse is the best I have had for the type of mouse included in the keyboard that it is. However, the clicking does not register right on any of the ones I have used. What I mean is sometimes it clicks, sometimes it doesn't, in the corners. It is really, really, good other than that though, so I can still give it a 4.

    solid build, responsive keys and keys are raised/built just enough so you don't really miss a stroke. might take a couple days to adjust if you're moving from a traditionally spaced input device. a bit pricey but it shows in the quality, and you don't really need it but it helps if you plan to use the Go as a traditional computer.

    Makes typing on Surface GO much easier

    This keyboard is not absolutely necessary for the Surface GO but if you plan on doing a lot of typing then it is a must. The on screen keyboard is okay but this makes typing much easier. Although it is a little pricy...you can get a Bluetooth keyboard from a different manufacturer that would work just as well

    It's expensive and everyone wishes it should come with the Surface Go which is a bummer. However, this keyboard is a must but to fully utilize the Surface Go. The keyboard is comfortable to type on, responsive, much better than the butterfly keyboard you find on the mac. Also the large trackpad is a plus too

    Must Have Accessory for Surface Go

    If you have a Surface Go and want to use it for a true computer the keyboard is a must have accessory. I do think to this dark burgundy is a handsome color and looks really nice in person. It also has a nice fabric texture to it so it feels high quality. It's also really nice to type on and is also back-lit.

    The magnetic attachment strip has yet to ever fail for me. When attached to the Surface Go, it becomes incredibly stable where I can write full papers with the Surface and Keyboard resting n my lap with no fear of it becoming unstable or falling out of my lap. Its pretty awesome!

    Perfect fit for the new Surface Go. The Burgundy color is great, just like with the original Surface line. The key travel is very impressive for this small size, and the track pad is very good, even bigger than the standard Surface Pro's. Great feel, quality build, and amazing color!

    The keyboard is a "must buy" to get the best use of the Surface Go. Only downside is that the smaller size keyboard takes some time to get used to. Layout is also a bit different from a regular keyboard. Still, it is easy to use and a "must" for max productivity.

    At first I did not like this key board because letters would repeat themselves. But, I figured out that it takes a light touch to use the keyboard. Magnetic attachment and closing are really great. I like the smooth look of the cover.

    Since our surface go didn't come with the keyboard, we purchased this and it protects the screen of the tablet very well and is very easy to set up. Doesn't add any extra weight to the tablet and the keys are sturdy for fast typing.
