Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromI like the back lighting for the keyboardI bought this keyboard because the pad on the original one that I purchased with my Surface Pro had quit working. This one works fine, but I miss the volume control keys that were on the older one.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat buy even if it was pricey.Reading the other reviews I can definitely see the hesitation in purchasing the type cover for the surface 2. However, its definitely worth the investment. Not only is it slick and works great with the surface 2 tablet, its very well built. I happen to drop my device several times (I know, shame on me) and I'm super glad I had the type cover. It acts as another shield for the screen without being tool bulky.Now whenever I whip out my tablet kick out the kickstand and pull down the type cover, I always turn heads. Just saying for you guys out there - this is really cool way to pick up chicks ;)

Rated 3 out of5 by fromNot bad, not perfectDefinitely an improvement over the touch cover. Key travel is fine and makes typing more pleasant. The trackpad, however, leaves much to be desired. Its texture is the same as the rest of the keyboard and so finding it without looking is difficult. Its surface is covered with a felt-like material that seems out of place on a trackpad. The entire keyboard is also too flexible and doesn't feel solid enough when using it in your lap.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromExcellent "Tech" for a not-so-technical UserLove it! Very easy to adjust to using if you are accustomed to built in mice on most laptop computers. Also, I find that since I have smaller hands, I don't mind the size of the keyboard. It beats typing on a smartphone keyboard most definitely.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromAlright if you don't use the letter 'K' or 'Space'In general it was a good keyboard. The trackpad is terrible but they changed it for the Surface 3. Very shortly after I bought the Type Cover, I noticed I was mistyping 'K' often. I assumed it was me, but now that it is out of warranty my 'K' key is very clearly the culprit. I can get 'K' to work but you have to really hit it hard. And now the 'Space' registers a single press as two presses with some lag in between. To be clear, I'm not hard on the surface and it spends most of its time on a desk. I am a fast typist and it's very frustrating when the sentence "The black duck says quack," shows as "The blac duc s ays q uac." For the price it should definitely lasted longer. The portability of the device as a whole is ruined if I have to bring an external keyboard, and I'm skeptical about spending another $130 for a new one that will only last a year.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromAfter one year, it quit.....bought Mar/2014. Absolutely love it! Two days ago, goofy glitches started happening. Then it refused to work at all... power still goes thru, but no commands. Today, I spent over three hours with support. He finally authorized a replacement. Thank you Microsoft for being fair and honest... Ren 3/22/15.
