    I can't imagine someone buying a Surface Pro laptop and not wanting some kind of keyboard to go with it. The ideal way to use one of these is when it's attached to the Surface Dock and you have your favorite full-size keyboard, mouse and external display(s) attached to it. But on the go? This is Microsoft's portable keyboard solution. It looks nice and doubles as a cover for the Surface's screen. I don't really enjoy typing on this very much. It's just "ok". Has a flimsy feel to it and the keys are sort of mushy when you type on them. But that's just what you'd expect from looking at it.... I think in the end? Microsoft makes this as a nice compromise so you can have some kind of keyboard with your Surface Pro tablet that isn't inconvenient to carry around with it. But if you're going to do a lot of typing, you're probably better served by buying the Microsoft Surface Laptop instead of the "Pro" tablet?

    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

    This keyboard is nothing special. It does the job. I am slightly annoyed however that the sales associate I dealt with misled me to believe this was the only keyboard I could get for my Surface Pro 6, but I should have been more thorough in my own research. I don’t really like the texture of the keyboard and I wanted a black keyboard, but honestly like I said... it does the job.

    Keyboard paired easily and provided a level of protection to screen but is not for school use as it does not seem robust enough to suffer being placed in a back pack with text books and dumped on floor at school . Perfect for university or older kids. Limited options Re an alternative

    I honestly only have to use this when there is dom weird nuance in tablet mode such as changing location in a video or selecting things on a webpage. I’m sure other people will use it more frequently but Microsoft sort of forces you to buy it. Otherwise it’s like a hotdog without a bun. Get the cheapest one you can possibly purchase

    Flimsy but does the job. Lights up when typing and easily comes apart. Compatible with latest surface laptop 6. The keyboard is more fabric like and isn't plastic.

    I bought this because I thought maybe there was something wrong with my fingerprint keyboard, the way the curser jumped around and screwed up my writing. But this wasn't any better. I think these are just not designed for fast typists. I wish Microsoft would come up with something better.

    As I mentioned in the review, this is a pretty lightweight keyboard. The key strokes are good and of good depth. However, even before a year, due to medium usage, the grey material- where your hand rests, starts fading away.

    I got this for my daughter who is 12. I wanted the black but they were out of stalk. I got the platinum worried it would show dirt, etc. I was right. The light color does not do a good job at hiding dirt and it is not easy to clean.

    Intermittent Keys

    I was excited to purchase a Surface Pro. However, the problem arose with the keyboard. The keyboard was very intermittent unless it was on a completely flat surface. I returned the keyboard twice in an effort to get a working keyboard.

    Very expensive keyboard

    The keyboard is just okay. I personally didn't feel anything particularly superior to other keyboards except for its price tag. At least they could've included finger print sensor or anything equivalent to justify its high price which there isn't.

    Simply too flimsy for typing on your lap

    Truth be told, the only positive attribute about this keyboard is that it barely adds any bulk or weight to the main unit. However, it just to flimsy if you're not on a sold flat surface.

    I love the color and that it doubles up to help protect my surface. I wish that it did have a number pad tho. It takes me longer when typing numbers just having them on the first row.

    This keyboard itself is nice. The fabric feel is nice. However, the trackpad just has a hard click to it. I wish it was a little less noisy when clicking.

    This is a must have accessory for the surface pro tablet. The reason I'm giving three stars is because it should come standard with the tablet.

    Average Keyboard

    Though it's slim and sleek to have around, I'd rather have a keyboard that works when it's completely detached from the device. Also, I don't really enjoy the feel of the keys and mousepad.

      Hello,

      Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback for us here on Best Buy. We read each of the reviews that comes in, and we take into account all of the experiences our customers are having with our products. We're sorry the Surface Pro Signature Type Cover was not the right fit for you, with wanting to use the keyboard while detached. You may find that swapping the keyboard out for any of our bluetooth Surface keyboards would be the best fit for your needs! The Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard & Mouse, may be a great combo for you.

      Hope this helps,

    I like the color of the keyboard and that it is detachable obviously. The only problem I'm having with this keyboard is that the keypad isnt sensitive enough.

    The keyboard is just fine, but it doesn't have the best feel. And why does Microsoft want so much money for it! It's just a keyboard.

    Good look and keys feel. Not lacks the experience of traditional keyboard and not comfortable on uneven surface.
