When you close Surface Pro 4 Type Cover over the display, it functions as a protective shell, shielding the screen from bumps and scratches.

Ratings and Reviews

Rated 2 out of5 by fromStick with the regular type coverBought this to replace the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover that I use with my Surface Pro 3 so I could get Windows Hello but after trying it for an hour I realised that the fingerprint reader is flaky, inconsistent and of 5 times I tried to unlock my PC it did not work on 3.On one of these cases the device went to sleep and on wake up it wouldn't see the fingerprint reader and therefore not give me the option using it to unlock the device.Going back to my teal Type Cover 4 that not only looks better, works really well for typing and cost less.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromVery well madeLovely type cover compare to the SP3 type cover. Finger print scanner works very well. I have no problem with it although there are many negative feed back about the scanner not working consistently. I don't have any problem so far and it works, signing in is a breeze. Typing experience is a lot less frustrating compare to the old model. The keys feels good and the spacing are much better. The track pad is greatly improved too especially on the palm rejection which the SP3 type cover was pretty bad. Its quite enjoyable to type on this. To me, this SP4 type cover is way above the SP3 type cover. I wouldn't say its well worth the price cause it is on the expensive side, but it is a great product from MS. Love it!

Rated 2 out of5 by fromFingerprint temperamentalThe Surface Pro 4 Type Cover is definitely an upgrade from the 3 Touch Cover but I wouldn't waste your money on the fingerprint addition until Microsoft sort themselves out. You can pretty much only use it for Windows Hello and even then it's incredibly temperamental which I believe is a software issue rather than hardware.

Rated 1 out of5 by frompacked in after two weeks - a bit underwhelmed,As the computer insists on using the camera recognition anyway not sure its worth the huge price tag. Never mind the arduous task of talking to the support personnel at Microsoft to organise a return ... don't think I'll be replacing it.
