There are three keyboards for the Microsoft Surface: "Touch", which feels like a slim layer of felt; "Type", which has a hard plastic feel and is far closer to a real keyboard--and then "Power Type" is a Type keyboard whose body is also a secondary battery for the Surface Pro. All three keyboards snap neatly onto the Microsoft Surface using strong magnets that click the keyboard neatly into place.
The "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.Read more ›
+ The part you actually care about: will it type? The answer is yes, it will-- but you are going to have to give it a bit of time and effort. I've found that the less I treat it as something "different," the better the Touch Cover responds. Since I touch type anyway, I'm never really looking down at the keyboard, and if I let my fingers fall where they would on a laptop with flat keys, hey presto, you're looking at 70 - 90 wpm after about two weeks (Microsoft says the adjustment period is about four to five days; it took me around three to get up to speed, but that's a question of how much you use it). However, holding down the [Shift] key (and striking [A], for some reason) will definitely take some real getting used to. There are, thankfully, two indentations on the [F] and [J] keys to signal the home row. Much appreciated, Microsoft.
+ The mouse input and two-finger scroll work surprisingly well, although in Windows RT the scroll orientation is locked to "reverse" (or in Apple-speak, "natural") scrolling, which can be frustrating for some. I'd suggest using tap to click instead of trying to wrestle with the two pressure-sensitive buttons.
+ Touch recognition works great. If you're just resting your fingers on the cover, there won't be any input onto the screen-- a light to firm tap will do the trick.
+ It's a good cover.Read more ›
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.
Again read the reviews carefully and then consider this one. I really like the 'Touch' application.
