A Keyboard Here to Stay
As with the computer world, mechanical keyboards have taken everyone by storm, and I may be one for the few but I can't stand them. For a longtime I repurprosed a wired Mac Keyboard because I loved the look and the short and quiet keystrokes. However, it began to fail me and I hated that it was wired and I had to run certain software to even allow me to use the multimedia keys. Once I saw Microsoft release this keyboard I knew I had to get it. It was a full keyboard (num pad is a must have for me), wireless and having a surface and a desktop the multimedia keys looked perfect. Once I received it I did fall in love. The texture of the keys feels like a 'soft' plastic that has become somewhat standard these days. Some things that I enjoy and took me by surprise: - Locking FN key: I hadn't seen this before but dear god do I love it. Similar to how we see the num lock work, the FN key allows you to lock and unlock it. This means that weather you want the multimedia keys to be on all the time or you want access to the F# keys, with a simple click of the FN key you have one or the other. - All the Windows 10 specific shortcut keys: as someone who has fully embraced Win10 I love being able to popup a calculator or have a quick search key or to change desktops. Especially while using this keyboard on the surface, its wonderful. - Battery life: I have used this keyboard daily since I received it back in the beginning of January (its been almost 3 months), and haven't yet had to change the batteries. If you are someone that is coming from a wired keyboard this may seem like a hassle, but with other wireless keyboards I have had, I've had them die anywhere from 1 month to 4. I am just fine with how this has held up thus far! Some gripes or some things I'd like changed/added: - Probably my largest complaint is that when you don't use the keyboard for a moment or two (probably in the 60-120sec range, it'll go into what I am going to call a 'hibernate' mode. It is still there but when you go to begin typing again there is a small delay from when it begins to register which can cause me a moment of misspelling (because of me, not the keyboard). However, having used it now for a bit, its something I have gotten used to. - I would LOVE just a bit of space between the main keyboard and the insert/delete/arrow keys. I find it can be difficult for me to find the arrow keys without looking down because I usually judge it off the gap between the keys. Again something that me being a novice typer is more the cause of than the keyboard, but just my opinion - As a person with multiple computers (surface and a few desktops), I would love to see a quick connect to different computers. This is something I have seen in just a few keyboards, but if it were introduced I would by a new one in a heartbeat. I have the Logitech MX Master Mouse, which has a wonderful quick select between computers and it is easily my favorite feature. Overall: I gave it a four because to me, almost no keyboard is perfect. However this is (embarrassingly) my 9th keyboard in 3 years, starting with the cheapest of cheap wireless combos, to mechanical, to apple and now to this, I am whole heartedly happy with this keyboard thus far. I look forward to Microsoft's next iteration of peripherals, keep up the good work folks!

I am back to revise my comments again
This is second time I revised my comments. This time I bring my comments back to 5 stars. Microsoft exports helped me resolve a serious question. I originally thought that my keyboard was broken. My keyboard was still connected with my laptop, but all keys did not work, even the light indicators of caps and num did not work. It seemed that my keyboard was broken. It is very simple to resolve. Right click the start, go to Device manger, then click Bluetooth list, choose and uninstall the keyboard, restart laptop, go to settings and connect the keyboard.

This keyboard is probably the best keyboard I've ever used. It feels very comfortable to type on because of how your fingers naturally find the middle of the keys thanks to the same slight indent that they use on the surface devices. Also appreciate the dedicated screen lock and Action Center buttons. If you love typing on your Surface device, this keyboard provides the same amazing experience with even more key travel. Regarding other reviewers' complaints: -I don’t mind no illuminated keys because that would just drastically decrease battery life and I’m never going to use a full size external keyboard outside my desk in the dark (unlike, say, a laptop). -The price is a bit steep, but the quality is excellent. Also consider Apple's equivalent offering costs $30 more (also doesn't have illuminated keys). -I don't have any of the connectivity issues (I'm using a Surface Book w/ Performance Base).

No backlit keys on a premium Keyboard in 2017 = no deal
Why in the world would Microsoft not include backlit keys? Honestly, this is a nearly perfect Bluetooth keyboard. The high price tag just doesn't seem appropriate without illuminated keys.

Perfect Slim Keyboard: Presentation and Authentication
I really love this keyboard. Here is why... I am a big believer in logging in as Standard User to negate roughly 90% of threats to Windows. I have a Surface Pro 4 that I use upwards of eight to fourteen hours a day. I do demonstrations and because I log in as a "Standard User" often will come the need to elevate privileges. This keyboard allows me to register two fingerprints for myself : one for Admin and one for Standard User. This allows me now to seamlessly move between my accounts and remaining secure. Before I was (still am) using Windows Hello Facial 3D scan off my Surface Pro 4... this is fine but I only have one face. So that was a pain point for me: My Face for Standard User and had to type a PIN or Password for Admin. Often making mistakes. Pretty embarrassing when presenting. So now I have TWO ways to log into Standard User (Fingerprint and Face) and can use another finger for Admin.... this totally solves the pain point I had. Highly Recommend.

I bought this a while ago, but finally arrived from overseas, and it's just beautiful, it's perfect. Everything, from the unboxing, the feel of the smooth keys, the sturdy build quality, the way it connects to my PC effortlessly, automatically, like magic. The typing experience is also wonderful too, with my full-sized laptop keyboard I was getting so frustrated because I just couldn't accommodate to the layout, and HP made some really weird decisions (Split up and down arrow keys in a gaming laptop? What?), but with this, typing just come naturally. I just wish it had backlighting. For the next version, maybe? Please?

No backlight caused a three star rating!
I enjoy everything about this keyboard until the room darkens and I can no longer see where to place my fingers to start typing. All the hype about this perfect keyboard and I figured it must have backlighting. I will not make that mistake again.

Mostly perfect. Maybe not a perfect "Surface" keyboard.
Amazing build quality. Definitely one of the best keyboard I used. As a Surface user who's been using Surface from the first Surface Pro though, the keyboard is a bit inconsistent with traditional Surface keyboard experience, and these are the reasons: fn+arrow keys as home/end/pgup/pgdn combination really grows in you as you use Surface for a long time. on this keyboard I often get this frustration after unconsciously pressing fn+arrow for home/end. Also, after getting so used to compact layout Keyboards from Type Covers and Surface Book, the extended length because of the numpad is quite difficult to manage at times. The numpad alone prevents me from using this keyboard as my main input device. I'm really looking forward to getting the "Space Saver" version of this keyboard.

Connectivity Problem - Freezes Notebook
I'm using the surface keyboard with a surface mouse on a HP Spectre x360 13.3" (Windows 10, intel i7 7th gen, 16GB RAM) and frequently, with a single key pressed, it freezes my notebook for like 10 sec. Beautiful, but stressful.
