Fold Surface Pro 4 Type Cover back like a magazine for a tablet experience with Surface Pro 4. The keys are disabled when the cover is flipped back to avoid inadvertent typing. 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 5 out of5 by fromFlexible to useThought I would add to other users reviews. I find the Type Cover keyboard easy to use although I prefer using a MS Mouse to the touchpad. The keyboard itself is responsive and I've had no issues with it to date. Over 12 months now. Wrap a protective cover round the Type Cover and Pro 4 for added protection when travelling but have yet to remove it in use as Pro 4 connections are all accessible. Use Pro 4 daily as my desktop computer using the MS docking station when at the office connecting to two external screens as well as using the Pro 4's. When at home the Pro 4 sits comfortably on my lap for use with keyboard attached.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromWorthwhile upgrade for Surface Pro 3 ownersI had been using the Type Cover 3 for the past few months, and found it slightly lacking - the keys were not spaced, so it was easy to make mistakes; the trackpad was too small; the cover would flex whilst typing; the keys felt mushy. All of these issues have been addressed with the new type cover, which brings the Surface Pro 3 much closer to a laptop-grade experience.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMassive Improvement over previous Type CoverI have had a Surface Pro 3 with the old type cover for a long time. An uncontrolled cup of Coffee meant the sad demise of the keyboard, but happily not the Surface pro.I checked some reviews and figured I would try the newer version of the keypad. I am now glad that Coffee was spilt. The new Type Cover is HUGE improvement, and makes my SP3 much more usable.It feels much sturdier than the old one. The spacing between the keys make it easier to type (I am a two-finger typist, not a touch-typist!). The key action is much better, and the back-lighting is good. The touchpad is also a massive improvement over the old postage-stamp sized one.Would very strongly recommend!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromAmazing typing experience for a cover device!Firstly we have to consider that this is a dual purpose cover device (type cover) for a tablet when reviewing this product, as such it's not really fair to compare to a "proper" keyboard. However, in this case this product is as good as the keyboards on many laptops and in fact better than a lot of them. I upgraded to the Pro 4 version of the type cover to use with my pro 3. It worked straight away right out of the box so I don't know what the issue is with the other user.It;s a very worthwhile upgrade on the previous type cover. While I thought the old one was good, this one absolutely blows it away in typing experience despite actually being thinner in use than the previous type cover, the keys have more travel and are better spaced out and with a proper action, not the mushy feel the old type cover keys had. It's much better than the typing experience on many low to mid priced full laptops and close up there with the higher priced laptops in my opinion. The backlighting is adjustable in brightness also which is a really good feature.In addition the new trackpad is vastly improved over the old one and scrolling on webpages and selecting is much better.Microsoft hit the nail on the head with the design of the Surface pro 4 type cover, while it's helped by the fact it doesn't have to also physically support the device unlike other designs of tablet keyboard/cover due to the Surface's excellent kickstand, it's a very elegant solution and actually does work very well as a tablet cover, little thoughts like the extra strip magnet to make a more natural typing angle are just the things that make it a pleasure to use. I had no complaints in a year of use of my old Pro 3 type cover and I'm liking this one an awful lot more. Well done Microsoft.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromBeatiful design, makes surface pro 4 unreliablelooks and feels great. Love the backlighting and the color!HOWEVER...These keyboards cause issues when used with surface pro 4.Just google VIDEO_TDR_TIMEOUT_DETECTED for examples - it causes the screen to not switch on after going to sleep, requiring the machine to be restarted.Now I'm having issues with the keyboard causing LockApp.exe to crash, making it impossible to log in to Windows, also requiring the machine to need a hard restart.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromdisappointmentBought and returned surface pro 4 three times and each when had defects similar to those listed on microsoft website. When the item works, eg screen does not go blank or does not respond regardless of updating it, then the device is worth it. Will wait for the next surface pro release.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromWanted colour always out of stockIt's hard to use a Windows tablet without keyboard, well may be a pc. Better if we can customise gesture of it. Finally, keep in your mind, battery life only last up to 2/3 of official test in real situations and less than half for intensive computing (that is a Windows laptop). But it's portable with your charger and worth to consider with its pen and full pc capacitities. By the way, the website is not optimised for mobile devices and hard to use. Customer service seems good since now but the ways to reach are limited.
