    One half protects the computer and that's built pretty good but there is nothing to protect the Microsoft keyboard Its going to get scratch and dirty . I wish they would build a complete cover to protect the whole nine yards other wise its nice and that's why I gave it 3 stars

    It is very protective and well designed for freely accessing the ports without having to take it off the device. The metal kickstand is a nice bonus but gets light scratches fairly easily and can scratch a surface it is used on if the user is not careful. The case also fits very snuggly on a surface pro 4 so that the task of placing the case on the device yourself, without causing damage can be a bit nerve racking. After applied however, does its job of protecting the device well and is perfectly compatible with device's keyboard cover.

    The only real case worth getting. It protects your investment, has fantastic grip for tablet mode, and helps my OCD rest because it truly protects my surface pro baby. My only issue is the kickstand, but I am sure it will take some getting used to. It feels like it could break and when in use, scratch surfaces. So far none of that has happened so it is most likely a sensitivity/insecurity I have - run out and buy this case!

    I picked up this case the very same day I bought my Surface. At first I was a little hesitant to spend an extra $70 on an accessory that I wasn't sure would be worth the purchase. Two and a half months later, I'm glad I bought it. Pros: I travel frequently, and the case helps to protect the sides and rear of the Surface from bumps, dings, scratches, etc. Using a keyboard cover provides front-side screen protection; therefore, both products fully envelope the surface in a protective cocoon. The T-shaped kickstand clicks out as far as 90 degrees (perfectly perpendicular) from the back end, allowing you to view the Surface from quite a few angles, even portrait-style. An elastic loop on the top right corner holds the optional keyboard cover closed. Though I sometimes wish there were another loop on the left side, the one loop does the job just fine. Finally, the attached pen holder keeps the Surface pen tightly gripped to the case, so there's little to no worry about misplacing it during travel (it would take quite a bit of rummaging and bumping to inadvertently wedge the pen loose). For temporary placement, the pen sticks magnetically to the left side of the case (however, I always use the top pen holder when transporting my Surface; can't be too careful). Cons: The Surface alone isn't the lightest tablet on the market, and this case actually adds a little more weight. This makes hand-holding the entire ensemble for long periods of time a little discomforting. The case also adds to the dimensions of the Surface. If the tablet fit super snug into your carrying case when naked, then you'll find it challenging to get it to fit with the case on (I got around this by utilizing a carry bag just large enough to fit the cased Surface and a few extra accessories). When installing the case for the first time, I winced as I snapped on the corners, one by one. It fits very snug with not a lot of give (which is probably a good thing, since you know the case isn't going to just randomly pop off). Also, once the case is on, there's no access to the SD card slot on the back of the Surface. You'll have to remove the entire case every time you want to change out cards (and removing the case made me cringe just as much as putting it on). I just bought a large-capacity card so that I didn't have to swap out smaller-capacity cards. Overall: The case bulks up the Surface just a bit, adding weight yet reliable sturdiness. Coupled with the keyboard cover, the Surface is afforded all-around protection from bumps, dings, scratches, etc. The built-in kickstand lets you position the Surface either in landscape or portrait orientation. The pen holder is a VERY welcome feature, as it holds the pen firmly in place during transport. Though it can be a little off-setting to snap on and take off, the case gives you access to all ports EXCEPT for the SD card slot, so take this into consideration if you like to frequently swap out cards. I honestly feel this $70 purchase was a good investment to ensure that I'll enjoy my Surface for a long time.
