Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromLove the keyboardI purchased the French keyboard and am glad I did. Works very well for bilingual use. A great solution when you can't find an English keyboard for the Surface RT.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromGreat Keys; Terrible TrackpadIn a nut shell: the keys are great - they feel good for short travel keys, they have backlighting, and spacing in such a compact form factor is fine. The trackpad on the other hand is awful - the texture is rough so your finger doesn't glide like it should, the left/right click aren't actual buttons so there is absolutely no tactile feedback (no clue when you've actually clicked), and it's tiny so you have to keep moving back to the opposite side if you plan to move it a good distance.Its most redeeming quality? The magnetic connector to attach it to the Surface. It's simply fantastic, and near impossible to miss. If only the same was done for the power adapter connection...Overall it's fine, but it could be much, much better.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromExcellent keyboard cover,Poor mousepadOther than the mousepad, this is an excellent keyboard. The keys feel good and are responsive. The lighted keypad is great in low light and the magnetic connection is brilliant. The mousepad is not lighted and is very hard to find, even in normal light. A contrasting colour or fijfenish is a simple improvement which would make it easier to find, It is frustrating trying to find the mouse or left click buttons. Lighting would be the best solution but anything making it more user friendly would be an improvement. The type cover 2 would easily rate 5 stars if it had a more user friendly mousepad.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromA Must Have for WorkaholicsI purchased this for use with my Surface Pro 2 and I'm very happy with it. It's thin, rigid and it's backlit! It clicks in firmly with the Surface, and works with any Surface model.The magnetic connectors make it really easy to attach to the Surface. They're pretty strong as well - I was able to hold my Surface Pro 2 upside down from the Type Cover, and it stayed on no problem. HOWEVER, I wouldn't recommend doing that just in case it does decide to detach.You can flip it around to the back of the Surface and the buttons are automatically disabled - really useful.The touch pad is on the small side and the buttons underneath it could use some fine-tuning. They require a little much pressure to recognize your input. However, the Surface does have a touch screen, so I can see why this isn't such a huge deal.I purchased the Type Cover 2 in cyan, and the colour is awesome. It's about the same as the cyan on the Lumia Windows Phones. It gives the tablet a little colour and personality as well. Any colour will look great.This product continues to impress me time and time again. I'd recommend it to anyone. The backlight is awesome, and the keys are nice and tactile. Near perfection.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromThe best solution for touch typists.If you hunt and peck at keyboards, the touch cover is fine for you - but if you're lucky enough to not need to stare at the keyboard when you type you need this. It's quite amazing how well this thing works, and the Surface doesn't get nearly enough credit for having something like this available as an accessory. Seems pricey at first, but it's worth it.Small room for improvement with the trackpad buttons, I would like them to have some physical travel like the rest of the keys - it's difficult to "find them". That being said, you don't really need them. Tap anywhere for left click, tap two fingers anywhere for right click.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromGood but Track Pad is rough and difficultThe backlighting is good but compared to the original Type Cover that has a very smooth feeling trackpad and relatively easy to you left and right mouse buttons the Type Cover 2 seems to have a rough texture which make movement difficult on the track pad and it's tough to click the left and right mouse buttons so I went back to my Type Cover as I can live without backlighting but don't want to struggle with the trackpad on the Type Cover 2

Rated 5 out of5 by fromPerfect for SurfaceIf you're going to be typing a lot on your keyboard, this is the perfect one to couple with your Surface. It was very easy getting used to the key spacing, and the mechanical key feedback is very impressive, considering how thin this cover is.
