Protective and productive

Fold the keyboard 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 the keyboard over the display, it functions as a protective shell, shielding the screen from bumps and scratches.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromHuge improvement!My old type cover (for Surface Pro 3) finally gave out after I'd pounded away on it for a few years (might have been the dog fur that got inside!) and I had to replace it. I bought the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover with fingerprint technology and it works GREAT with my Surface Pro 3. HIGHLY recommend it. The feel and sound of the keys is much more like a regular keyboard, and I love the fingerprint for signing in, etc.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat keyboard!Bought this for my SP4 specifically for the fingerprint ID. The fingerprint ID works perfectly for turning on my SP4, though it has not worked as well with the True Key password manager so I reverted back to password for True Key. The typing experience on this keyboard is AMAZING. My PC keyboard now feels "mushy" by comparison. Wish this keyboard came in colors other than Onyx (black).

Rated 5 out of5 by fromVery Pleased with Type Cover with Fingerprint IDI bought this primarily to gain the Fingerprint ID capability for my Surface Pro 3. Not only does the Fingerprint ID work very well, but the new arrangement/spacing of the typing keys is an unexpectedly dramatic improvement.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromFor SP3, mostly a vast improvementBought this a month ago for my Surface Pro 3. Like others have said, it is very good overall but there are a few differences from my original SP3 type cover that I dislike.I'm at a loss to explain why they brought back the always-a-mistake Ins(ert) key, and why they moved the HomeEndPage block to place the Ins key over F12 where you are much more likely to mistakenly press it.The Mute and Play/Pause key were switched; this is a minor annoyance but still an inconsistency. I presume they moved Mute to be next to the new Volume Up and Down keys that replaced Search and Share. Why did they need VolUp and Dn keys? There is already a physical hardware button for that.I almost never used the old middle block of media keys but, besides the new PrtScn key, I wish I had the old keys back and in their old places.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromAn unexpected improvement.I bought this keyboard solely because I liked how it felt in the store when I typed compared to the type cover I purchased with my Surface Pro 3 over a year ago. I'd spent time typing on this one in the store and thought I knew what to expect. Boy was I wrong!First, yes - the keyboard is exponentially more comfortable and feels somehow "faster" than the older type cover. Second, WOW the trackpad. This is, by far, the smoothest and most perfectly tuned trackpad I have ever used. The default sensitivity for both movement and tap-to-click is perfect. Third, the fingerprint ID is more useful than I'd expected. In addition to the Windows 10 functionality I already knew about, it also works as a login feature for my password manager and, I'm sure, much more that I haven't discovered yet. Finally, let's talk about (cringe) lapability. The keyboard's magnetic attachment to the screen feels stronger and the whole keyboard feels more rigid and solid than my older type cover. The end result is a device configuration that very closely mimics the stable feeling of a decent laptop. Overall, this keyboard made my Surface Pro 3 new again.In short, this upgrade for my Surface Pro 3 works perfectly and offers improvements I wasn't expecting. I'll be honest and say that I almost never use my old touch cover anymore - I just didn't like it. This, however, I will use. It's one of those things I didn't realize I needed until I got it.If you're a Surface Pro 3 owner and you're looking for a way to refresh that system and make it feel new again - this works well.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromFeels greatThe keyboard has a great feel with it's elevated keys. The only drawback so far is that the fingerprint reader tends not to work whenever I wake the computer from sleep or standby.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBest keyboard on any tablet to dateI have been blown away by this keyboard which in my opinion is the BEST on any tablet out there. I am extremely impressed by the quick response of the fingerprint reader. I am 100% satisfied with this keyboard - which is a massive improvement from the original Surface Pro 3 keyboard. One word for any Surface Pro 3 owner; get this keyboard!!!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromReal Productive Type Cover.The fingerprint saves lot of time and make you more productive. One side it feels like actual keyboard other side it makes as a surface cover plus as a productive keyboard, unlocks in less than a sec. And along with spacious mouse pad. Most I liked is very easy configuration for multiple fingers.
