    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!

    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.

    Works great, but overpriced

    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.

    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

    The size of the keyboard is small and cramped it will take some getting used to. I love the keyboard light up feature so late night typing won't be an issue. The track pad is spacious making it comfertable and easy scroll and click.

    Completes the Microsoft Go Tablet

    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.

    The surface go type cover is just as good as the surface pro type cover....it’s just smaller. Its backlit, feels nice and its equally responsive. The surface go, in my opinion, works better with the type cover.

    Great keyboard for the Surface Go. It is a smaller version of the Pro keyboard that is a proven product. It also acts as a cover for the table screen. It is necessary to use the Go with Office.

    I bought this with the Go. After using it for a few weeks i was able to type quite well. I would not use this for all day use but it suffices. The track pad is great.

    Not cheap, but impeccable quality. Key travel is great, touchpad is outstanding, and the backlighting works well. If you have a surface Go, you need one of these.
