Stops working after eight months
Comments about Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Type Cover with Fingerprint Reader - Black:
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 .
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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

I love this keyboard! Sure its expensive but what in life worthwhile isn't? The feel of the Alcantara is sooooo silky and luxurious. The gray color compliments the surface pro 4 nicely. I really like the backlit keys of the type keyboard and the tactile feel of the keys.The keyboard attached instantly to the surface and recognized it immediately Microsoft really did a wonderful job with this keyboard. It did have a weird chemical smell when I opened it , but that disappears after about a week. Overall, I would highly recommend [even for the extra money], this type keyboard if you are trying to decide between the colors of the other ones.
I bought this keyboard because my Surface Pro 3 needed a pick me up. I also bought this keyboard expecting that it would not be more special than the other keyboards. My expectations were met and I love this keyboard. Things that I like: - This keyboard is more quiet than my Surface Pro 3 keyboard - The keys are spacious - The trackpad is larger - The look Things that I did not like: - It costs a little more than the others (though it is the same) - Just like the other Surface Pro 4 Keyboards it does not have the specialized Surface shortcut keys in the top row. It is just a standard keyboard.
