Overview

Turn your Surface Pro 3 into a premium laptop
With improved stability to work well on your lap, Surface Pro Type Cover turns your Surface Pro 3 into a first-class laptop. It's enhanced with magnetic stability to keep the Cover steady.

Colorful, backlit mechanical keyboard
Boasting one of the thinnest mechanical keyboard available, Surface Pro Type Cover has the speed and functionality of a classic laptop keyboard. It's also backlit so you can continue working after the lights go out. Easy attach and disconnect lets you set up and get going right away.

Function keys, media controls, and touchpad
Surface Pro Type Cover features a QWERTY keyboard, a full row of Function keys (F1-F12), Windows shortcut keys, and media controls, so you can navigate expertly. An ultra-thin touchpad lets you control the cursor with your fingertip.

Doubles as a protective cover
Fold Surface Pro Type Cover back like a magazine for a tablet experience with Surface Pro 3. Surface Pro Type Cover keys are disabled when the cover is flipped back to avoid inadvertent typing. When you close Surface Pro Type Cover, the display shuts down, which helps protect the screen from bumps and scratches.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGetting betterJust recently, I upgraded from the Surface Pro 128GB to the SP3. I was already used to the Surface Type Cover 2, so, I wanted one for my new toy. I liked the red one the most on the Mocrosoft Store page and since my local BB didn't have it, I ordered it there online.A warning: The color on the red one is actually a much brighter and fuller red than on the picture. I can live with it but be aware that the brownish tint seen here on the image doesn't reflect the color in the real world!Finally, a type cover with a trackpad that actually feels like one! It drove me nuts on the previous generations because you simply couldn't feel it properly and button press was often hit and miss. Not so with this one. It even supports the most common Windows 8 touch screen gestures. That means less reason to touch the screen.Besides the slight difference in the color, there are 2 things I am not so happy about:The first one is that the magnets to put your keyboard in a slight angle are a bit strong and you sometimes have problems to keep the keyboard flat, especially if you work on an uneven surface.The second issue is that the type cover doesn't fold back perfectly if you want to use the Surface as a tablet. If you try, the keyboard most likely will snap out of the port and, instead of one, you're holding 2 items in your hand. Still, this isn't as bad as it sounds like. Maybe my keyboard is still too new and it will get better over time but for now, it is an issue.Either way, I like the keyboard. It was worth the money and, in my opinion, it is a must have for every Surface owner.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromIncredibly usable and comfortableDisclaimer: this is a very thin, small keyboard, so my review is written in that context. However, I use the surface pro 3 as my daily driver PC, and I type almost exclusively on the Type Cover Pro. Hours later, I'm perfectly comfortable, and not that I'm used to its particular layout/spacing I'm no slower than on any full-sized keyboard.In particular, having it magnetically snap up to the device is a huge improvement over the previous generation type cover. It improves the stability of the device dramatically (particularly when using on the lap), and makes it feel much more natural. The only downside of this configuration is that it makes it harder to tap buttons on the taskbar with your finger.The trackpad is still not macbook air quality, but I've never found myself bothered by its feel or responsiveness, unlike the previous gen.Literally the only oddity to me is that, in a product that already has lots of magnets, it doesn't magnetically hold closed to the Surface Pro 3 when you're closing it as a device screen cover. Odd, but hardly a problem as long as you expect it.I love my type cover. If you're getting a Surface Pro 3, this is strongly recommended.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat type coverI got this a little over a week ago and it works as advertised. The backlit keys make it easy to use in the backseat of the car at night.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromVery NiceIn all honesty, I am rough on my keyboards. I get them dirty, like grease on the keys and God knows what underneath the keys. Anyways this keyboard is light, easy to clean, easy to attach on and overall a well featured. It is hard to get anything underneath the keys. It is nicely back lit with adjustable brightness, offers quick charm buttons, and all it's missing is a keypad. The felt is nice but one problem, the kick stand on the surface is a bit rough on the felt, so be cautious swinging the keyboard back behind your Surface and putting the stand on it. Other than those two things mentioned, it's been a great experience.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromPerfect.The keys are so light to the touch, I love it. I broke my right wrist last year and the light touch save a lot of discomfort. I recommend using the Ease of Use settings.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromAwesome Case/KeyboardI have only had my surface pro 3 for a few weeks and the quality of the keyboard doubling as a cover is amazing.
