Surface Power Cover Retrospective

After having the Surface Power Cover I find the old saying “Having is not always the same as wanting”. The cover works well but is quirky. Touch pad buttons are very hard to use, no solid feel to know if this has been clicked. Reversing the cover as down to use the Surface as a tablet, the Surface fails to recognize the battery. The quirky thing is when the cover is attached, the Surface Stylus (or Wacom Stylus) turns off. I will keep the cover, maybe invest in a new type cover (the old one had an unusual bulge around F1 and F2), but it is a far cry from what I hoped it would be. If I had to do it over, I would not purchase the cover. Sorry MS, good idea, bad implementation.
