I bought it and will continue to use it because I have it. Be thank full that Microsoft sold it individually because it could really be the tipping point in price. If you are someone who regularly types throughout the day and on the move it's a must ( very compact). But, if you are like me and uses it as a tablet during the day at school and uses the pen religiously, then maybe a bluetooth keyboard and mouse (mouse isn't necessary "touchscreen" but convenient) at home (rarely to be carried with the tablet) might be a better option and will save you a little cash. This review is mostly food for thought for the person who is on edge buying one now. Or maybe wants to and consider all options first.

I bought my type cover a few weeks ago. It's pretty neat- the magnetic connection is really cool and the cover is very thin. A few problems, however: Occasionally the type cover randomly stops working and I have to reconnect it. The material on the back gets dirty easily. The keys show fingerprints very quickly and it's hard to get off.

Comments about Microsoft Purple Surface Pro 3 Type Cover:
I have the docking station and the Type Cover for surface pro 3. Seldom use the Type Cover as I attached the surface to docking station most of the time. I did detached daily to dock the station. The surface cannot detect the Type Cover after 18 months. Technical team cannot resolve the proble. Poor durability.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

short lifespan, spacebar button not responsive
i have this for 1-2 years now and it suddenly has poor connectivity with my surface pro 3 one day. I rarely detach the device. Now it will intermittently connect and disconnect when attached (unusable). Tech support unable to troubleshoot and its put of warranty period. For this price i would expect the product to last much much longer. Spacebar button requires hard tap to be responsive since day 1.
Nice Keyboard, Horrible Trackpad.
The keyboard functions well, it does have some issues with "bounce", as it is soft, and will give if you are typing hard on it. I have also found that if I apply pressure to the keyboard cover's corners to hold the surface still, it will bend, and click the trackpad. The trackpad is not very good, it is nor very responsive, is not responsive enough to handle gestures consistently, and does not always return back from a click. Overall, this will get the job done, but after a few months, the trackpad will become so frustrating you will stop using it.
i can not use it this way

Great features, easy to use, and quietly appealing
I use the keyboard more often than the writing pen. Its more convenient and easier to use than the on-screen keyboard.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Destroy work flow due to backlit timeout.
Imagine having a thought or referencing something on a tablet but having to reawaken the backlit light on the keyboard every time. Reason why when its late and dark the Macbook is preferable. Even a 6 year old Macbook is better.
Had it for a couple of years. Lightweight, attaches well with magnets. Would like it to hold closed when I close it over the screen with small magnet.
Fantastic now that the bugs have been worked out
Who needs a laptop as my Surface PRO 3 with this keyboard works like a charm I sold my other products including a desktop as this does all I need since I retired.
Better than expected!
This is really a must have for the surface. I works great as both the cover and a keyboad. As a cover it can be folded behind the surface to use the surface as a tablet, and when you want a hard keyboard again just flip it back.
The Best Keyboard I Have Used!
By David 90
I own the red Type Cover 3 and it is fantastic! I love the backlit keys. The track pad is very good. The material is high quality. I love the fabric feel of the device.
