    You know i love the look of the fancy colored GO MS keyboards and wanted to get a blue or red one. Instead I got the plain old basic black one, it was open box from BB and looked ‘new in box’ to me when i got it in the mail...thanks BB. And I have to say I am glad I got this basic black one, I have a ms Surface pro 4 with that fancy fabric coating, gray’ish color. And yes, it feels fine and probably hides dirt a bit though if I got to pick a fancy fabric color it would be a color like blue or red...not gray (it was a package deal when I got the surface pro). Ok, so the GO keyboard feels great to type on, size is workable...after all it is only a 10” tablet guys/ladies. Three, yes three, as I recall black light settings...now you don’t get to pick colors...this is MS after all. Keyboard travel is great, keyboard protects the device when carried...well the screen is covered just don’t drop it. Actually, I don’t like carrying the GO without my keyboard cause it gives you something to grip instead of the glass side of the tablet if you follow my thought. Folds back for tablet view. Worth buying new or as open box and would not want a ms GO tablet without it, Plus I like how the plain black material feels, seems it will take dirt and other spills both of which will come off. Well don’t go and toss soda all over the keys you all, but a few drops on the frabic ‘type’ material will not be any issue at all. Now GO, I say, go buy one if you want the perfect GO keyboard.

    There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this keyboard. The key travel is exceptional, its comfy and sturdy. It is backlit and well spaced, very easy to use. Its trackpad is big, smooth to the touch and just incredible. I am a lifelong Apple fan and I have an iPad Pro with the Apple Smart Keyboard. The Surface Go keyboard is better than the apple keyboard in every possible way. I am awe struck by Microsoft attention to detail and truly Im impressed how far their industrial design has come. Love it, enough said!

    Very good accessory to have

    The keyboard provides a very good input device for the tablet when used to create documents. The touch and feel of the keyboards is good when on a flat hard surface but on the lap it's a bit tricky. Moves a little and makes me feel I've missed a keystroke. Since most of my work is on a desk, this isn't a big issue. Wish I could disconnect it and get the screen a bit further away. Maybe a cord to hook it up to the tablet would allow this as making it Bluetooth would require a battery and additional electronics which would add weight. Like that it protects the screen when shut.

    Great Keyboard

    I got this keyboard for my new Surface Go (which by the way is awesome), and the keyboard is great. The keys are backlit, it magnetically clips on and off easily, and the keys have enough travel to them to feel like a normal keyboard. The magnet is strong enough to keep it attached when I use it to hang on the back of an airplane seat and never detach . I do wish the other side of the keyboard had a small magnet to keep the cover closed like the iPad covers do. That would be my only negative about it.

    A necessary edition to the Surface Go

    The Surface Go is a good secondary machine, but like the bigger Surface Pro is not an ideal tablet. To be productive, you pretty much need the Type Cover. The Type cover for the Surface Go is slightly smaller. For those with bigger fingers, it might take some getting used to. It also does not do well when it is in the incline position. The keys when pressed are not always recognized. Still, it's something a Surface Go user needs for their Surface Go, despite its flaws.

    I must admit, I wasn't expecting much from this keyboard/touch-pad. The touch-pad is almost as good as my Mac, and that is saying a lot. It is butter smooth. Having experience with the second gen butterfly keyboard from Apple, I assumed this low profile keyboard would be just as bad yet serviceable. I was wrong. The keys feel fantastic. I love the way it attaches to the tablet, and the overall way it functions.

    This keyboard like clicks on to the Microsoft surface and is there for your typing and searching needs. It’s light, sleek and all Microsoft. Best accessory for the Microsoft surface. You can use your surface as just a tablet and do just reading, and they have cases that cover the tablet, but I love to type and I highly recommend Microsoft products and the surface go.

    Small keyboard that doesn’t feel small

    Got this with our Surface Go and it’s pretty great. We were worried about it’s size, but when you get your fingers on it, the keys don’t feel squished for size at all. Definitely recommended for anyone getting a Surface Go, and the only difference between this model and the $30 more version is just material of the keyboard, it feels just fine.

    While smaller in form and in key distance than a regular key board it has a nice tactile feel. I don’t know that I’d want this as my daily driver, per say, but it’s not unpleasant to type on. It fits very snuggly to the Microsoft Go and is very thin in form.....but $100 for it seems steep. Overall though it’s the best option for a keyboard and cover.

    Surprisingly comfortable keyboard

    I bought the keyboard for the sake of being able to type instead of using the on screen keyboard (with very low expectations). To my surprise, the keyboard is very comfortable. For the small footprint it occupies, it is very comfortable to type and the keys are very responsive. My hands don't feel cramped at all.

    You are missing out on half the surface experience if you don't purchase the keyboard cover. That being said, this doesn't feel cramped, the layout is only slightly thinner than my full sized mechanical gaming keyboard. The trackpad is nice and large, as well as responsive. And it works great to protect the tablet screen when on the go.

    This should be a default item with the Surface Go. Connects and detaches very easily. When you get the keyboard a half inch from the Go it docks itself. The keyboard is great protection for the screen in transit. The keyboard even light up so its great for dark locations.

    Sure it is cramped, as you would expect on such a small unit. But the keys are very comfortable to type on and adjusting to the size for me came quickly. As with all things Surface related, the build quality is top rate. Fit, form and function is just right for the GO.

    Works great, is super thin and light, you’ll hardly notice that it’s there! The backlighting is perfect. As a gamer, I’m not a huge fan if the WASD placement, it’s a but awkward, but other than that, great job making it fit this tablet so wel.

    Key travel is good, and I like the backlighting feature more than I thought I would. I prefer this style over the Alcantara versions because it's easier to wipe down. It does have a nice texture to it, it's not hard plastic.

    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

    A must have for the tablet, serves to protect the screen when slipping the Go in your bag, and has a night backlit keypad for staying productive. Spending the extra on the colorful ones is really just a matter of preference.
