Comments about Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Type Cover with Fingerprint Reader - Black:
I bought this keyboard for the finger print reader and it does not work consistently. About one in ten logins will it actually work, sometimes the option to use the fingerprint reader isn't even available.... not happy!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought this cover after prior experience with the standard type cover 4's. They tend to get discolored with standard wear and tear, the signature type has so far stayed looking really well. The back of this keyboard is incredibly soft to the touch and the front is a bit more rigid, but otherwise nice to feel. I bought mainly to get a keyboard that matches the tablet's grey and this cover is excellent.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Stops working after eight months
It stops working completely after eight months. When attached to the SP4, it's as if it is not connected: there is no back light, key presses, the fingerprint reader and the track pad do not have any response. Also tried it on my friend's SP4, it does not work either. While my friend's type cover works on my SP4. My SP4 has the latest update, and I also tried two-button shutdown and reinstalling the driver .
For SP3, mostly a vast improvement
Bought 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.
This is a quality keyboard. It is well designed, easy to use, and has many great features.
Nice key board
By Chakravarthy GSK
Works very fine with fingerprint apart from the rest of the features
love this keyboard
the keyboard is easy to use. I previously had a Sony Vaio and that keyboard was NEVER my friend. I love the feel of the keys and I seem to type much more accurately with this keyboard!

Wow, Can It Get Any Better Than This?
This is the best Surface keyboard yet! Even better than any other tablet or 2-In-1 keyboard I've seen or tried. The keys feel great! You don't even realize it's a detachable system it's so natural feeling. Everything feels just right! Smooth track pad with a nice touch. It's just great! Nice color too.
Stylish and an amazingly good keyboard
The Surface Pro 4 Type Cover is an amazing product. Astonishingly thin and light, it is still a comfort to type on even for extended periods. It was fun to consider various color options, but none of the options spoke to me like the Alcantara covered Signature edition. This cover has a rich feel and a color that compliments the body of the Surface Pro very well. Matched with the included Surface Pen, this looks like a set of products designed together. As a keyboard, any color Type Cover 4 represents clever and useful technology. Wrapped in Alcantara, the cover is all that and more.
Great Keyboard for Surface Pro 4
