Great Additon to my Surface
I've wanting this surface cover for awhile. I bought my surface in 2012 so I'm glad I finally was able to get this type cover. It has been very useful and easy to use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Replacement works fine
This Type Cover 2 is for my wife's Surface Pro 2. Her old Type Cover 2 backlight stopped working and was under an extended warranty from AMEX, so we bought a new one. It works great with no issues, which is important, as her Surface Pro 2 is her only computer, which she uses daily.

I had problems with original keyboard of keys not responding I replaced it But this model keyboard should also have the hard surface mouse pad like the other models for more efficient use It does not lucid or smooth maneuver when using :-(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Lasted 2 years.
I bought my surface pro 2 and the type cover 2, right when it came out. I love this keyboard. I'm in grad school and do a lot of typing (I also do creative writing for fun). Now, the track pad just recently decided to stop clicking on things when I hover over a link and just tap the track pad where my finger already was. Now, I have to actually use the left click button. Not a huge deal, but I'm going to have to replace the keyboard as soon as I can afford it. The track pad is the only thing that has worn out over two years. Everything else works perfectly.
I love the feel and structure!
I bought it a month ago because I wanted to start writing reports while I travel. The keyboard is sturdy light weight and I can have the additional cover on the tablet and it doesn't interfere with key board. It keys are comfortable and smooth and I can work in dim light without my issues.
I bought a new one because the old one would not work. The sales rep was very helpful in trying to figure out why but ended up having to buy a new one. A year ago I had to get a new touch screen. I love the Surface but not happy having to replace its parts.
Microsoft Type Cover 2
Love this typing surface. It's quick and very easy. I have an arc mouse, so I don't use the mouse pad very often. But, when I do, I've had few problems--mainly from lack of knowledge and use... I have a purple one and hope the color doesn't go out of stock. Had to have it replaced after one year, as the signal connection was shot. This may be a design flaw in the crease where it connects to the Surface.. Microsoft was good in replacing it for free and I'm much obliged for their generosity, as the price is stiff... I do like the backlighting very much and the touch sensitivity is fine.
I like the back lighting for the keyboard
I bought this keyboard because the pad on the original one that I purchased with my Surface Pro had quit working. This one works fine, but I miss the volume control keys that were on the older one.
Great buy even if it was pricey.
Reading the other reviews I can definitely see the hesitation in purchasing the type cover for the surface 2. However, its definitely worth the investment. Not only is it slick and works great with the surface 2 tablet, its very well built. I happen to drop my device several times (I know, shame on me) and I'm super glad I had the type cover. It acts as another shield for the screen without being tool bulky. Now whenever I whip out my tablet kick out the kickstand and pull down the type cover, I always turn heads. Just saying for you guys out there - this is really cool way to pick up chicks ;)
Not bad, not perfect
Definitely an improvement over the touch cover. Key travel is fine and makes typing more pleasant. The trackpad, however, leaves much to be desired. Its texture is the same as the rest of the keyboard and so finding it without looking is difficult. Its surface is covered with a felt-like material that seems out of place on a trackpad. The entire keyboard is also too flexible and doesn't feel solid enough when using it in your lap.
