5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine item in plain wrapping 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Does what it says - clips magnetically onto the Surface and gives a touch-sensitive keyboard effect. Slimmer but just as effective (to me anyway) as the thicker, bulkier keyboard option. Also it protects the screen when folded over (when the unit is switched off). Very light.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt work for typing 2 Jan 2014
There are all kinds of Problems with the touch cover going wrong and the Microsoft customer service is apalling (I purchased direct from the Microsoft Store).
So if you are purchasing the Surface RT to use as a convertible tablet with the touch cover for typing (as most do and I did) then do not bother as I have had a miserable experience and would have purchased a competing product with detachable keyboard or small lap top had I known that the touch cover is unreliable.
The tablet is OK if you dont want the accessories, but I purchased it to use it for typing documents so doesnt meet my needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Fond of Felt 29 Aug 2013
By Winter - Published on Amazon.com
There are two keyboards for the Microsoft Surface: "Touch", which feels like a slim layer of felt, and "Type", which has a hard plastic feel and is far closer to a real keyboard. Both keyboards snap neatly onto the Microsoft Surface using strong magnets that click the keyboard neatly into place.

This "Touch" cover has a soft texture to it, and feels like felt: the keys are raised indentations and I find myself making mistakes far more often because I can't keep my fingers perfectly positioned to hit the dead-center of each key. Something abou the gaps between the keys is what I think reduces my accuracy. I've been using the felt keyboard on a very regular basis for weeks now and I still can't adapt to it. The "Type" keyboard costs just a bit more. It is plastic, each key clicks when you tap it, and although the shallow depth of the Type cover can't give you the same spring-back that a normal PC keyboard will, it's still much better for any prolonged typing than the "Touch" keyboard.

I take a lot of notes and do a lot of typing on my Surface Pro. Having used both products, I find that the "Touch" keyboard takes a lot of time and patience to adapt to. I tend to type much slower, while using the hard-plastic "Type" was a more natural transition.

If you're only going to use the snap-on keyboard occasionally, such as to type a password and then move on to surfing/reading, then it won't make much of a difference to you. But for any serious typist, the 'Type' is a must-have on the Surface and the "Touch" falls short of the mark.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for casual use 17 Jun 2013
By nekojita - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Let me just say that the product arrived very promptly and in great shape - I have no qualms at all with the vendor and think they're great.

I did end up sending this back - more an error on my part. I should have checked a bit better and I ended up getting a 'Type' keyboard since I do a lot of typing. The 'Touch' style keyboard is should be fine if you're not that much of a touch/blind typist or if your not doing a lot of typing/writing. For myself, I do a lot of that style of typing and like to feel the keys. This is pretty much a flat piece of plastic/fuzz (and black at that - I'd rather get it in another color if I'd stick with the Touch keyboard). The one thing I will say for the Touch keyboard over the Type is I much prefer its mousepad/clicker. I think they got that part right.

If you want a Microsoft Surface keyboard delivered next day and don't mind the flat/non-responsive keys, then this is a great product to order. If you can wait a few days, there are cheaper options out there. If you type a lot, you might want to consider the Type keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Surprise.... 21 Aug 2013
By John Engel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I opened the box I was in for a big surprise as I thought I had read that what I was ordering was a 'Type' Keyboard. After all I read about the touch I thought it best that I go with the type. But once I opened it and saw, and found out where I had made the mistake I gave it a try. I have used it for about a month and have nothing to say but good about the keyboard. It has not given me any problems with the fact that there is no physical movement. I wonder when reading the reviews if people are just expecting too much. I really like it and the fact that it is quiet makes a big difference. I do not have to worry about using it during a meeting.
Again read the reviews carefully and then consider this one. I really like the 'Touch' application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quit comparing surface stuff to ipads 13 Feb 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My opinion is that this product is excellent for its purposes. I read the negative reviews and I instantly know that most of the people that rated it negatively dont really know what they are doing. First and foremost to the reviewer that complained because there are a lack of apps, and it isnt as good as an ipad ..... I was not aware that ipad made a magnetic keyboard pad and futhurmore that this mysterious keyboard has apps. Please before posting a negative review take a second before spilling said hate and be sure youre in the right place. I believe you were trying to review the actual Surface tablet. With that being said if you buy a surface expecting an ipad you deserve to be hit over the head with the affore mentioned purchase. An ipad is a tablet and a tablet only, the surface is designed to be a tablet/laptop/pc combination. Please do a little research and you will learn a bit more, as I know you are seriously reviewing outta your back end. Since you say there are "no apps for this thing" i can draw the following conclusions, you dont know how to use windows 8 or 8.1, you dont know how to use google, and you are probably buying a 1000 dollar tablet to play flappy birds.

All this being said this keyboard is responsive, light, and yes you caan use a usb keyboard those are mainly bulky, so for on the go use this keyboard is spot on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tried it, don't like it 7 Aug 2013
By Stephen M. Lerch - Published on Amazon.com
I've tried the touch keyboad with my Surface Pro. I like the concept of the keyboard, and it's a little lighter than the normal keyboard, but the reality is it requires a lot more force than what I'm accustomed to. Or rather, I'm accustomed to the tactile feedback of standard keyboards. What this keyboard does is bring touch screen kind of typing to a keyboard. It's difficult to get used to.

It works OK. The connection to the Surface is magnetic and the magnet is powerful. The connection is solid.

One big complaint, both for this and the standard Type Cover there is no number pad. If you NEED number pad, and have a Surface Pro (sorry Surface RT users), you can use any Bluetooth keyboard you want to carry with you. And some of those have number pads.

I highly recommend you try this out in a Micorosoft Store if you can and decide between this and the standard Type Cover. The Type Cover is more expensive, but feels more like a keyboard.
