Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover Review

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover is here and just to honor its release we might want to mention some of its pros before we get started on the drawbacks. It comes with an amazing magnetic flip which keeps the keyboard at a good angel for long hours use. They also incorporated physical keys unlike the earlier versions that had a sensitive touchpad. The track pad has also been improved and there’s pen storage for your convenience. It’s good to mention that the new physical keys are actually larger but still the keyboard feels a bit cramped as compared to the normal PC keyboard. However, you will like this new product if you already have a surface pro 3.


Just to get this out of the way, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover might feel a bit flimsy when angled and it’s also a bit expensive in comparison to what it offers. However, it’s one that has been improved and brings more PC functionality than any other of its predecessors. For this, you will have to pay a premium and its one thing that looks like a potential deal breaker.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover is a combination of a good screen cover and a quality keyboard. It gives the user a real laptop like feeling when using the new Surface pro 3 and there are only few tablets on market that can be able to challenge this.


To begin with, the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover doesn’t come with touch sensitive keys. In their position, you will find physical keys that you can press when typing. They are larger than the keys found in other surface type pro covers but aren’t close to the normal keyboard keys. In this regard, they tend to feel a bit cramped and so anyone used to the ample spacing of the normal keyboard would have a problem with this type cover. However, it’s one of the improvements in the keyboard department. They also decided to add on a magnetic flap that makes it easier to use the keyboard comfortably. I would also like to note that the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover is a bit larger than any other surface pro type covers. It offers more typing room and space. Although it’s a bit larger in size, the connectors are still the same and you could use any of the covers for your surface pro. You could easily use your older version of the surface type pro cover on the Surface pro three and vice versa but it’s still recommended that you use the appropriate type cover for your device since the sensors might not line up. Moreover the keyboard backing is a bit harder than previous versions, making it easy to use the keyboard on an uneven surface or on your lap.


I think the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Type Cover is a very good product and that you should consider it. However, many may still feel that the price is a bit on the upper side given that other keyboard covers like the Logitech Ultra thin for the Ipad comes bundled with it instead of purchasing it separately.

  • The Good :
    Larger and better physical keys. Magnetic flap for comfortable use. Advanced track pad
  • The Bad :
    A bit flimsy. Pricing not justified
Our score:
4 / 5
