    Not a bad type cover

    I was pretty impressed by the look of it when I first took it out of the box. It has a very nice felt like feeling. It looks amazing. This being my first type cover, I honestly cant compare it to the others. The key placement is comfortable. It snaps in place quickly and has not unsnapped even once. It definitely has a strong grip. My two cons for this product are: 1. It doesn't making typing in bed/couch easy. Coming from a Macbook, and perhaps any other laptop, this would be the first thing you will notice. I even had keyboards for my iPad that were more comfortable even on my bed/couch. On a table: amazing... On your lap: horrible. 2. I didn't remove a star for this because it is obviously more of a preference thing: the color attracts dirt. So don't expect to just throw it in your bag.

    Premium Type Cover for Your Premium Surface

    If you're familiar with the previous Surface Pro 4 Type Covers, this is essentially the same thing. What you're paying for is the premium material used to develop this product. The outside (back cover) of this product looks great and is very soft. The slight metallic look of the Microsoft logo adds a little touch of elegance. The inside (keyboard side) of the cover feels like a matted surface of some sort; which is different from the other Surface Pro 4 Type Covers. The typing and trackpad experience is the same as the other SP4 covers - which is pretty comfortable. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase because of the look of this product. I highly recommend if you don't mind paying the premium. :)

    I was honestly a little disappointed when I started reading the reviews of this "signature" type cover. For $30 more you are basically getting a "melange" cover, that's identical to the other cheaper ones but it has alcantara. Most of the reviews I read stated how "premium" this cover felt over the normal ones... however it feels identical to my old and cheaper blue one. The back of the cover is a little softer, but the keyboard side feels like cardboard just like the old ones. The trackpad on mine is also bent or sitting too deep on one side, ill swap it out as its most likely a defect. Overall if this item was the same price as the normal type covers it'd be fantastic however for $30 more i'd expect it to look and feel more premium.

    Stains :(

    I loved the color of this keyboard and initially received a lot of compliments on it. The functions are great -typing is made easier by the magnetic strip that adjusts to either flat or raised for comfort. However, a week after I got it, I noticed two stains on either side of the track-pad. They were from my hand sweat!! I haven't been able to get them off and have tried everything to clean the keyboard. The stains are very noticeable because of the light color of the keyboard and it's embarrassing. In summary, beautiful and functional but do not purchase if you have sweaty palms and don't want everyone to know by glancing at your keyboard :-/ .

    Solid Keyboard but Is It worth the Price?

    I originally purchased a standard keyboard for the Surface Pro. I saw reviews for the Alcantara keyboard and decided to purchase it. The keyboard is identical in form and function to the standard keyboard. The keys do not have better responsivity nor is there any added functionality this keyboard brings to merit the added cost. It doesn't look or feel "richer" or more expensive/lux. Save your money and purchase tips for your Surface pen instead. You will find that a far better use for your money.

    I'm not sure if it's better than the other typepad covers as this is the only one I have used, but I LOVE it. The keys are well spaced, back lit and have a great feel. The track pad is exceptionally responsive and I think the grey color is super cool! It was a toss up between the one with fingerprint ID or this one, but since Windows already has face recognition, and my salesperson suggested this was great, I went with this. I can't know what I'm missing with the fingerprint ID, but I'd say if you like the look and feel of the Alcantara, then go for it!

    Best keyboard for the Surface Pro 4

    This keyboard is worth the extra money. First, it does not have the same flex as the other TypeCover keyboards. It is fluid and types wonderfully. Secondly, it does not stain like the other colors. The Alcantara covering is not as much about fashion as it is about durability and being stain resistant. Alcantara is composed of about 68% polyester and 32% polyurethane, giving increased durability and stain resistance. The appearance and tactile feel of the material is similar to that of suede. What does this mean? You are getting one of the best keyboards and it looks great.

    First off, the surface is designed in a way that a type cover is necessary. However, unlike other tablets (ehm, won't mention them by name) it is a pleasure to use as it is well-designed and the keys are very well-made. They feel of high quality and a type cover makes using a surface that much greater. Getting the Alcantara version was a great idea as it feels a lot more luxurious and the texture is amazing. It is also a great color and I love the melange effect. The alcantara is used in many luxury products, and I can see why.

    The price is not cheap, but the latest generation of Surface keyboard is well built and feels fantastic. It is every bit as good as most laptop keyboards. The keys are back lit, with variable levels of brightness. The spacing between keys feels natural. Track pad is responsive. The magnetic connection to Surface is solid and easy to align. Just get the connector near the port on the Surface and it just falls right into place. As an added bonus, the keyboard provides protection for the screen when the Surface is not in use.

    One of the more tastefully fine covers.

    I chose this cover among eligible options due to the appearance and material. I am guessing that over time, this cover may not show as much where as less expensive covers. Typing on the cover is a good experience, but the keys sound hollow and there is a little spring when typing fast. Touch pad is also too sensitive, but this is common to all covers on the SP4. The color of the cover blends well with the SP4 giving it a professional look to use for business puprposes.

    too heavy

    It was advertised by the BestBuy for this product that the weight would be 0.63 oz (under Specification). But it is more than 0.6 lb. Adding this type cover to the Surface Pro 4, it adds weight. I bought this because of the advertised lighter weight even it is much more expensive than other models. But it is not the true.

    Gets dirty easily

    The Alcantara material is more like a fabric, and is very prone to getting discolored. My hands were never dirty when I'd use it, and it still ended up getting to be a light brownish tint near the edges where my hands would rest while I was typing after a few months of frequent use.

    So my job provided me with a regular surface type cover, but then I saw this new cover come out and I had to get it. I'm totally happy with it and I get questions about it from everyone. definitely turns some heads. the fact that it matches the device color, and feels great to the touch are among my favorite aspects about it. Get it!

    Photos may make it look like a plain gray keyboard, but in reality there is a subtle speckle pattern that should hide dirt and that looks really cool. It's a Microsoft keyboard, specifically designed for Surface tablets, so you get the wuality of an OEM product. This keyboard does offer backlit keys for working in low light areas.

    I was a little skeptical at first but I was using rewards for part of the payment so I went with the Alcantara type cover...very nice! It looks classy and feels good in your hand when carrying the Surface with the cover closed. Easy to type with on my lap. Backlit keys are nice. Glad I spent the extra money.

    The Surface Pen is a great accessory to the Surface Pro 4. It connects easily and I love the screen capture feature. So easy! You can also draw directly on PDFs in Adobe Acrobat. This a really convenient feature as I have to review and comment on documentation that is shared among my team.

    I purchased this keyboard to go with Surface Pro 4 and absolutely love it! It feels like a full-sized keyboard but requires a much lighter touch. I can type oh so very fast and my creativity just seems to flow better. The unique color pattern is awesome too. I would highly recommend this keyboard!

    I love the Microsoft surface line of computers........started with the first one and have replaced everything in the house and work with the surface!! This keyboard is just an extension of a great product, easy to type even for a terrible typist (30wpm). What a turn around for Microsoft!!!!

    If you have the money, the surface is a great toy .... getting all the extras ... keyboard, mouse, screen protection, etc is where the money is really spent. The "necessary" accessories cost nearly as much as the product. Do your homework and wring out the costs before you purchase.

    This keyboard is made of Alcantara cloth which is used in Porches and other high-end cars. It feels like suede. It makes for a sleek look for the Surface Pro-all gray/silver. If you can locate one, I think you will love it.
