Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat Additon to my SurfaceI've wanting this surface cover for awhile. I bought my surface in 2012 so I'm glad I finally was able to get this type cover. It has been very useful and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromReplacement works fineThis Type Cover 2 is for my wife's Surface Pro 2. Her old Type Cover 2 backlight stopped working and was under an extended warranty from AMEX, so we bought a new one. It works great with no issues, which is important, as her Surface Pro 2 is her only computer, which she uses daily.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMust have for school and workMy favorite features include the backlighting of the keys, the magnetic connection, and I thought size would be more of an issue but not at all, also I love that it's exactly like a regular keyboard so anyone who is familiar using computers (basics) will be just fine. It's really neat how the backlighting will fade out when not in use and come back just touching a key or I think if it senses any movement. It completely covers the front of my surface which is why I purchased it, for protection and function, and it's thin enough to fit into any case or sleeve. Perfect computer combo for me as a student, super light and size to fit in my bag without adding so much weight yet everything I need. I wish the back of the cover was a different material, it feels almost like suede and I'm afraid it will stain and because its so soft it slides a bit when using my lap desk at home and the keys catch much of the oil from my fingers so over time I feel they will fade. Overall great product, I'm happy with it. Don't miss out on the extra %10 they take off for students!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromLasted 2 years.I bought my surface pro 2 and the type cover 2, right when it came out. I love this keyboard. I'm in grad school and do a lot of typing (I also do creative writing for fun). Now, the track pad just recently decided to stop clicking on things when I hover over a link and just tap the track pad where my finger already was. Now, I have to actually use the left click button. Not a huge deal, but I'm going to have to replace the keyboard as soon as I can afford it. The track pad is the only thing that has worn out over two years. Everything else works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI love the feel and structure!I bought it a month ago because I wanted to start writing reports while I travel. The keyboard is sturdy light weight and I can have the additional cover on the tablet and it doesn't interfere with key board. It keys are comfortable and smooth and I can work in dim light without my issues.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromReplacementI bought a new one because the old one would not work. The sales rep was very helpful in trying to figure out why but ended up having to buy a new one. A year ago I had to get a new touch screen. I love the Surface but not happy having to replace its parts.
