Absolutely essential for the Surface Go 2
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 September 2021
Every article and review I read prior to buying a Surface Go 2 stated that the Type Cover Keyboard was an essential purchase, they were all correct.
This Keyboard is excellent. The build quality is superb and it works brilliantly. The keys looked a little close together, and obviously this is smaller keyboard than a full size one - but it's not cramped. Within minutes you become accustomed to the layout and it never feels too small.
The keys are satisfyingly solid and give good feedback, and the track pad is very responsive. The keyboard acts as a keyboard (obviously) and also as a protective case, so although the keyboard adds to the width of the Surface Go 2, it's not more than a dedicated cover would.
I bought the black version, which is more like a very dark grey. It's very attractive and the backlit keys illuminate nicely so the keyboard is clear in dim light, but not ridiculously bright.
The keyboard clicks on to the tablet using magnetic contacts and is powered by the tablet, so no need to sync it or charge it separately.
In a nutshell: Sometimes a product a product impresses because it works perfectly, and this does just that. This turns the Surface Go 2 from a gimmicky tablet to a genuine laptop-style device perfect for college or light work. Microsoft have set a new benchmark for tablet keyboards.
