Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI love itonly had it a week and it has made my surface so much more usable, however i have added a mouse, not saying the inbuilt mouse pad is bad just if you are doing a lot of work it gets a little tiring

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat, but not perfectThe good: Keys feel and work nicely. In fact, I'd prefer to use this keyboard over the rubbishy thing that comes with an iMac (I unfortunately had to use at work). Despite thinking that the backlight would be a gimmick, I have found it quite useful. Like the dedicated Windows/Surface keys and the magnetic attachment system.The Bad: The suede-like finish picks up all dust and detritus off whatever you sit it on and is not appropriate for the touchpad area. Price.Nevertheless, it is an essential accessory for any Surface tablet

Rated 4 out of5 by fromOverall a good productIts good but the track pad needs some work. Fair enough its a touch screen but I like having the option for the track pad.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromGreat , but Japanese IME is uselessThis is a great keyboard , BUT!If you wish to select/change from English to Japanese language from the keyboard , it fails badly. It cannot !! (without going to the Touch keyboard first and even then has trouble). MS Support (after 2.5hrs) tried but cannot.Other languages (as far as I know ) are ok.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromEasy TypingJust as easy to type on as a desktop keyboard. Only problem is the finish, something easier to clean would be nice but over all I am stoked.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromGreat Keyboard - Terrible TrackpadI bought this when I first got my Surface Pro 2. They keyboard feels great, the cover feels sturdy, but the track pad is really disappointing. The material creates a lot of friction and the sensitivity of the trackpad is next to hopeless for all but basic tasks. Double clipping is terrible, right clicking down near impossible..The solution is easy though, pick up an original typecover (from the original surface release). The keyboard is nearly as great and the track pad is infinitely better.. Rare to see a updated product that is worse to use.I just wish i could find another typecover... my original did not survive the great OJ incident from a flight two weeks ago.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromEasy to attach and soo convenient to type onreally liked how easily it attaches to the tablet and how easy it was typing on it. I expected it to be more restrictive due to its smaller size compared to a 'real' keyboard but it worked so well.
