Color Name: Cyan
Pros-

1. Comfortable and accurate typing.
2. Vastly improved touchpad.
3. Backlit keyboard
4. Useful shortcut keys.

Cons-

1. Overpriced.
2. Cheap material showing wear and tear.

I purchased a Surface Type Cover 3 along with my Surface Pro 3 the day it came out. So far I have enjoyed the keyboard and it has proven to be a very good upgrade over the Type Cover 2 from last year. The keyboard retains most of the good quality from the Type Cover 2 while fixing a lot of the issues that plagued it.

Pros- (continuation)

1. The Type Cover 3 provides a very good and comfortable typing experience. It is not the biggest keyboard in the world but it really makes the most out of the space it has. The individual keys are pretty big and they provide a lot of tactile feedback. I find myself making very few mistakes. I also do not have that cramped feeling that I often experience with small ultrabooks. The part of the keyboard where you rest your palms while typing has been increased in size. This makes the typing more comfortable and my palms don’t touch the touchpad and cause the mouse pointer to move all the time. That was an issue I experienced with the Type Cover 2. It was not a big problem but it was annoying. That problem has been fixed. Microsoft also added a magnet to the top part of the keyboard that attaches to the screen. This raises the keyboard which makes it more stable when you are typing on your lap.

2. The weakest point the Type Cover 2 used to have was the touchpad. Fortunately Microsoft listened to the critics and improved it. They improved it a lot. The touchpad is considerably bigger than the previous one. It is also made of a different material that is less prone to discoloration.

Color Name: Cyan
I've owned 5 covers for the Surfaces.

1) Touch Cover - not good. I bought this one with my first Surface RT. Thought it was novel. Novel it was, but not functional.

2) Type Cover 1 - I bought this when I got my first gen Surface Pro. I lost it on an airplane and I wish I still had it It had a smooth plastic touchpad that clicked. No backlight, but I would have happily kept the touchpad for the keyboard lights.

3) Type Cover 2 - This has a backlight, but touchpad is very bad. Fuzzy material that doesn't work well. It took forever for Microsoft to fix the "tap-tap-drag" functionality of the touchpad via a software update. Even when fixed, it was hard to use for any precision dragging.

4) Power Cover - Pretty much the same as the Type Cover 2 except no backlight. The one big plus is it is much stiffer due to the battery, no "typing shudder" that you get on the flimsier covers. Especially good for lap typing - and the battery doubled the time for my first gen Surface Pro.

5) Type Cover 3 - I got this with a new SP3. As far as I can tell, the keys are exactly the same as the Type Cover 2 and Power Cover but the whole cover is bigger. Same size keys, same typing feel. Big, big improvement is the touchpad. It is back to the smooth plastic with real "clickability" and has a much bigger surface area. I don't feel I have to use my Bluetooth mouse anymore. Also the magnetic strip that clicks it up to the Surface Pro 3 itself is kind of great for lap typing, but it accentuates the "typing shudder".

Incidentally, the earlier covers work perfectly well with the SP3. They just look a little funny and don't really protect anything - and no magnetic strip. I agree that the covers are too expensive, having said that I've spent about $600 on them!
