Customer Reviews

It Does What I Purchased It To Do This is exactly what I was looking for for my New Surface Pro. It fits snug and secure and feels great in the hands - though it did take some getting use to from holding the Surface Pro without protection to having this case attached but that's a good thing. The Pen holder and Type Cover strap are very nice compliments to the case as well, especially since just using the magnetic attachment made me think I would lose the pen one day. I have no problems with placing the pen when not in use and retrieving it again when I need it. Very tight fight. The signature Type Cover attaches easily and removes without obstruction and the strap prevents it from flapping about freely. The corners are well padded for the fall I hope will never happen and the raised beveled edges do add a bit of comfort to any fears about it landed face down (though I don't know if any product can give a 100% guarantee that nothing will happen to your screen if that occurs, I thing that this will get you as close as any other product offered). My only initial concern was with the way the back was left open to accommodate the "kickstand" and its range of motion but with the way the new Surface Pro reclines this is also a perfect feature as it offers no obstruction to the tilt feature. I haven't had the opportunity to try attaching the USB or other externals other than the charging cable but that works great and attaches no prob. Neither have I had the opportunity to use the rear strap due to the fact that I have ginormous mits so that will probably be one of the features that will go largely unused mainly for fear of stretching the thing beyond its ability to reset itself and then its all poking out and looking crazy. Overall, I'm quite pleased with the purchase and can't think of anything bad to say about it. It does what I purchased it to do and I guess that at the end of the day, that's what I paid for. Thanx Kensington!May 4, 2018 UpdateI purchased the Kensington on June 20, 2017 and all was right with the world until earlier today when I picked up my Surface Pro (2017) and the part of the case where the plastic goes around the bottom half of the Surface and leaves a gap so the stand can swing out freely snapped for no apparent reason and you never really pay attention to that kind of thing until you realize that that piece holds the two sides together that encase the bottom of your Surface. I believe the manufacturers should put some metal in the bottom part to hold the plastic in place or use a stronger type of plastic that doesn't bend so easily (which isn't really a complaint until something like this happens huh?) Since they offered a 2 year warranty, I'll see if I can contact them for a replacement. Fingers crossed - those kinds of things don't always go well. 3Kensington or the UAG? When I originally purchased my SP4 there were very few cases available. I knew that I wanted solid protection and the use of the SP4 stand. If I were really lucky, I would find one with some sort of handle. The best case I could find that met most of my needs was the UAG (had to buy direct at the time) which turned out to be a really good case. The UAG is very well built, offers very solid protection and looks really cool. This is one of those cases that you put on and are instantly confident it ll do its job.What I didn't like was the fact that I was forced to use the built in UAG stand. As you know the SP4 s stand is quite awesome so it's a shame not being able to use it. That said, the UAG stand is not bad at all it just doesn't compare. It's smaller, has far less angle options and has that loud hard click that sounds like it's breaking upon adjustment. And lastly no handle, this case is quite hard to hold one handed while using the pen or finger. I use the SP4 in tablet notepad form as much as I do laptop mode. Standing while note taking with the pen just isn't happening with the UAG sadly. Other than that, this is a solid case that offers superior protection.With that it seemed like a dream come true when I came across the Kensington Black Belt 2nd degree. Looks to be good protection, allows use of the SP4 stand and, it had a handle! Needless to say I ordered it and received it two days later. Upon initial inspection I have to say I wasn't as impressed with the build quality as I was with the UAG. This seemed to use a slightly lesser quality though similar material. The lack of protection around the bottom was also of concern. Don't get me wrong the quality is great but the UAG is really built quite well.After slipping my SP4 into its new outfit I noticed it fit well and felt good. Now again, I didn't have that immediate confidence in protection capability that I had with the UAG. Though it was close with the Black Belt. The main concern again was and is the bottom portion, try not to drop it on that end.The keyboard cover snapped into place and fit very well in all positions. This actually allows you to fold the cover back for tablet use. Technically you can with the UAG also though just barely, it's not worth doing however as it doesn't work very well. I also prefer the silicone strap that the Black Belt used to secure the keyboard over the UAG offering. No real reason, just personal preference they both work fine.The USB port with the Black Belt is in fact obstructed by the case but there is a simple solution. Amazon sells short 4 and 6 inch USB extension cords that you can easily throw in your pack. I know, one more thing to carry but how often do you use the USB port? In my opinion, the pros still out weigh the cons. I just wish I could have told the one reviewer this before he ruined the case trying to widen the opening, don't do that. The port is not obstructed at all with the UAG.So the pen holder seems to be the chief complaint with the Black Belt for two reasons, and I can see why. First it's really tight making it hard to place the pen with one hand. However, after experimenting I found that while inserting the pen if you push against the screen side wing of the holder with the pen it'll pop in nicely. Taking it out is not much trouble.The second complaint about the pen holder is that with the pen in it blocks the cut out for extending the stand. It does, however I believe Kensington s intent is to place the pen high in the holder so that just the tip extends past the bottom of the holder. If you do this, it's really not an issue (photo attached to Kensington review). The UAG has a great pen holder, no complaints.Another minor gripe about the Black Belt is the silicone material on the back portion that they used for the handle and surrounding area. The material quality is good but it s a lint and dust magnet. I m kind of a neat freak and this is a bit annoying. But if you carry electronics wipes in your pack as I do, not a deal breaker. This is a non-issue with the UAG.The next thing to mention is the overall look, the UAG takes the prize here. It's a really cool looking case and because of that it was hard to switch. The Black Belt is fine looking but it's just a case and doesn't have that cool sci-fi movie thing going for it. The UAG is significantly heavier than the Black Belt which is something to consider especially if being handheld.What would have made the Black Belt almost perfect in my opinion is a cover for the kickstand. Not a huge fan of the open air thing it's got going on. Some lesser cases have attached a cover on the stand that still allows its use but offers added protection. Like another reviewer, I added the Skinomi brushed aluminum skin on the back of my SP4. It looks good and offers at least mild protection from scratches and wear. The benefit to this however is heat distribution, it seems cooling is greatly improved with the stand area left open and the built in stand being used.Both cases work just fine with a glass screen protector. I have tried three brands of those and personally like the iCarez True Glass for ease of application and the fact that it doesn t cover the camera and microphone like some of the others. The rubber band/sticker installation method is a life saver.So, for me the winner is the Kensington Black Belt due to the handle (which is awesome) and use of the original stand. For me this case is a must have. If you love the SP4 stand I'd go with this. If you use the SP4 in tablet/notepad form as much or more than laptop mode, I'd go with this. Consider this the full function case for the SP4. Full use and you'll still have a quality case with good protection.Now if the stand isn't a big deal and you use the SP4 mostly as a laptop then I'd select the UAG. If you are concerned primarily with protection over all else, go UAG. Looks, UAG.Hope this helps some of you with your decision, best of luck! 4Best Surface Pro 4 case design out there I found. Home run! Kensington seems to have hit a home run here! Everything you wish the UBG case was, this is! Only adds a half pound, has a silicone strap when you want to share and present to coworkers or small groups that keeps you from accidentally dropping it and testing the military grade drop test rating! It has a tight holder for the pen. The case doesn't interfere with the type cover being removed or connected. The backside has a non-slip soft silicone material so it won't slide off flat surfaces from small pets or on slight inclines from gravity. All ports are are accessible and venting on the case matches the venting on the Surface Pro 4 to keep insulation effect to a minimum. There is even a small corner silicone strap to keep the type cover from flapping open during transport and handling. Very satisfied with the superior design so far! I had to order directly from Kensington as Amazon supply was out of stock at the time I was searching for a case. The only drawback noted so far is the soft silicone picks up hair and dirt but it will wipe off with a simple hand swipe...it doesn't stick like Velcro...so minor gripe and worth the non-skid trade off. I added a black carbon fiber patterned 3M skin from Skinomi to the backside of the Surface to match and protect from scratches and they go perfect together. Will update review after a month or so of daily use at work to see how it holds up! 5Incomplete compatibility with Surface Pro 6 and latest surface pen This case can technically fit on the SP6 but once you put it on it becomes clear it was intended to be used only on the SP3 and SP4.It's significantly harder to fit the pro 6 in it and even once you've got it in, the thin plastic on the bottom side where the type cover connects bends towards the screen showing that the case is straining to fit the pro 6. Plus, this same bending gets to a point where it actually blocks the type cover connection unless to push it out of the way first and even then it fights against the type cover connector making it easy for the connector to just get pushed off.The heat dissipation is terrible. I understand this is plastic but my SP6 would stay at an acceptable temperature for hours before it put this case on. After using the case for about 40 mins, i had to take it off because the tablet was getting uncomfortably hot.Then there's the pen holder. The latest surface pen simply does not fit in it. The gap is far too small. This pen holder was meant to fit the surface pen 3 and nothing else.It's bs that this product claims to be compatible with the surface pro 6 when there's so many glaring incompatibilities. I have no choice but to return this and get MOKOs model instead which, if the pictures are to be believed, can at least fit the latest surface pen while costing less 2Well made, does not impede I received this today after ordering it on backorder. I was going to buy the UAG case, but you cannot fold the type cover back on it, so I waited for the kensington. I really love this design. It seems to offer good protection without impeding any of the product uses. See my pictures for details. 5Thinking about a UAG case? Read this... I originally purchased the UAG case which I really wanted to like. It was sturdy, good fit and just looked cool. Unfortunately that case caused overheating issues. What most don't realize is that one of the cooling heat-sinks for the Pro 4 is underneath the kickstand. The UAG just builds heat in the case - the Kensington lets it escape. I used a couple utilities to verify my findings and the differences were amazing. The Kensington offers more padding around the corners, has a better type-cover lock strap and offers a tighter fit to the Bluetooth pen. 5The case snapped did not fit Surface Pro 2017 very well anyway. This case is marketed as a case for the Surface Pro 2017. I purchased it just over 4 months ago for my new SP 2017 and have had chronic issues with any and everything that plugs in from USB devices to power cords. Yesterday I took it out to use it and found that the thin plastic around the keyboard connection area had snapped and ruined this case. I am very careful with this device and carry it in a padded Tomtoc case inside an equally well-padded backpack. It looks like the SP 2017 was just slightly too big for Kensington. I think I have no choice but to find another manufacturer of these types of protective cases.Update Dec 1, 2017 ... I contacted Kensington Customer Service about the two year warranty on this product. They seem willing to help, if I provide pictures, invoices and identification of the case. However, they are asking for a ("Serial Number") of this case. There just isn't one. They indicated that it was on a sticker on the side, but if that is the case, it is long gone. I will update further and let you know if this is fruitful. I still wonder if this case is truly made for this laptop. I have included a picture of the broken case. 1Despite all the negative reviews, works fine. Most issues in other reviews are due to user error. I have a surface pro 6 that I purchased in winter 2018 for the new school semester. I'm clutzy and tend to drop my surface from time to time, so protection was a must. However, I'm also a digital media student and Computer Science student, so it was REALLY important to me that the pen be attached, and the keyboard still work.I was REALLY nervous about purchasing this because of the reviews about the keyboard, pen, and back hinge feature. But it all....works fine. The new pen is definitely too big at first, but if you keep using the thing, it WILL loosen up. It's just a rigid material so the fit will be tight. I actually solved this problem by pulling the larger pen flap with my teeth and stretching it out, and inserting and reinserting the pen from the top a few times. Works fine now. I'm not worried about damage to the pen or anything.Back hinge opens and closes without a hitch- I don't experience any scratching opening and closing it. If you're experiencing this, push down on all the corners and sides, and make sure it's popped in all the way. It doesn't open as far as it used to/doesn't lay as flat, but it works for my art purposes just fine. Still bends back pretty far.It doesn't seem like the case is straining to fit to me, nor does it impede the keyboard connectivity at all. If you turn the backlight on for your keyboard, you'll be able to quickly check if it's connected properly before trying to use it.Keyboard closes great, and the rubber thing in the corner that holds the keyboard closed works fine. They probably should have put one on the other side as well, but it seems to work fine. I can only imagine it flying open if dropped at a weird angle from a decently high height.Biggest complaints are that the material is so rigid, it's a bit hard to push the buttons on the side for volume and locking. Not sure if that changes with time- I just got this today. The back handle is soft and comfortable but hard to get your hand under. There's a good bit of weight from the case, as to be expected, so it might not fit as smoothly in a laptop carrier anymore. It no longer fits in mine because it was a slim fit. You should probably use a bigger bag.Giving this five stars overall because despite the drawbacks, it's really nice. There are a few minor things that could be fixed but overall it provides great protection and accessibility. I'd definitely get this over UAG because it retains he ability to use features like the original back hinge, giving you access to the SD card slot. Seems sturdy and i don't feel so scared of it falling anymore. Protected from all sides and corners.Also- I put a screen protector on, and I will say- you should probably put it on AFTER you put on the case. It's pretty tight on the sides so it skims the edges when you push it in, and I've heard of the glass screen protectors cracking when they put them on. There's enough space to put it on after, so just do it then.Hope this helps! 5Not For Surface Pro 2017 It doesn't fit for Surface Pro 2017, maybe because the 2017 version is a tad bit thicker. The camera holes are askew, the pen slot is not designed for the new Surface pen, the type cover doesn't fit and protrudes from the case, the charger port only allows you to plug it in in one certain direction, the beveled edges of the screen aren't covered,and the kickstand isn't able to be bent back to the full 165 degrees. The strip underneath the type cover is so stressed it's bowing inwards. Great product but definitely not for the Surface Pro. They need to upgrade/update it. Everything else is fine, but these small details do matter a lot, akin to a baby vs toddler seat. It won't have the same amount of protection.Does it fit? Yea, I guess.But it wasn't designed for the new Surface Pro. 2This DOES NOT support the Surface Pro 6. I confirmed with Kensington tech support that this case IS NOT designed for the Surface Pro 6. The bottom of the bezel will partly cover the Type Cover keyboard connector of the Surface Pro 6, and requires you to pull down on it in order to attach the keyboard. If the bezel breaks from pulling it down too much, I'm not sure if Keningston will cover it under warranty if you use the Surface Pro 6.I'm not sure why Amazon lists this as being compatible with the latest Surface Pros. 1

After using the case for about 40 mins, i had to take it off because the tablet was getting uncomfortably hot.Then there's the pen holder. The latest surface pen simply does not fit in it. The gap is far too small. This pen holder was meant to fit the surface pen 3 and nothing else.It's bs that this product claims to be compatible with the surface pro 6 when there's so many glaring incompatibilities. I have no choice but to return this and get MOKOs model instead which, if the pictures are to be believed, can at least fit the latest surface pen while costing less 2Well made, does not impede I received this today after ordering it on backorder. I was going to buy the UAG case, but you cannot fold the type cover back on it, so I waited for the kensington. I really love this design. It seems to offer good protection without impeding any of the product uses. See my pictures for details. 5Thinking about a UAG case? Read this... I originally purchased the UAG case which I really wanted to like. It was sturdy, good fit and just looked cool. Unfortunately that case caused overheating issues. What most don't realize is that one of the cooling heat-sinks for the Pro 4 is underneath the kickstand. The UAG just builds heat in the case - the Kensington lets it escape. I used a couple utilities to verify my findings and the differences were amazing. The Kensington offers more padding around the corners, has a better type-cover lock strap and offers a tighter fit to the Bluetooth pen. 5The case snapped did not fit Surface Pro 2017 very well anyway. This case is marketed as a case for the Surface Pro 2017. I purchased it just over 4 months ago for my new SP 2017 and have had chronic issues with any and everything that plugs in from USB devices to power cords. Yesterday I took it out to use it and found that the thin plastic around the keyboard connection area had snapped and ruined this case. I am very careful with this device and carry it in a padded Tomtoc case inside an equally well-padded backpack. It looks like the SP 2017 was just slightly too big for Kensington. I think I have no choice but to find another manufacturer of these types of protective cases.Update Dec 1, 2017 ... I contacted Kensington Customer Service about the two year warranty on this product. They seem willing to help, if I provide pictures, invoices and identification of the case. However, they are asking for a ("Serial Number") of this case. There just isn't one. They indicated that it was on a sticker on the side, but if that is the case, it is long gone. I will update further and let you know if this is fruitful. I still wonder if this case is truly made for this laptop. I have included a picture of the broken case. 1Despite all the negative reviews, works fine. Most issues in other reviews are due to user error. I have a surface pro 6 that I purchased in winter 2018 for the new school semester. I'm clutzy and tend to drop my surface from time to time, so protection was a must. However, I'm also a digital media student and Computer Science student, so it was REALLY important to me that the pen be attached, and the keyboard still work.I was REALLY nervous about purchasing this because of the reviews about the keyboard, pen, and back hinge feature. But it all....works fine. The new pen is definitely too big at first, but if you keep using the thing, it WILL loosen up. It's just a rigid material so the fit will be tight. I actually solved this problem by pulling the larger pen flap with my teeth and stretching it out, and inserting and reinserting the pen from the top a few times. Works fine now. I'm not worried about damage to the pen or anything.Back hinge opens and closes without a hitch- I don't experience any scratching opening and closing it. If you're experiencing this, push down on all the corners and sides, and make sure it's popped in all the way. It doesn't open as far as it used to/doesn't lay as flat, but it works for my art purposes just fine. Still bends back pretty far.It doesn't seem like the case is straining to fit to me, nor does it impede the keyboard connectivity at all. If you turn the backlight on for your keyboard, you'll be able to quickly check if it's connected properly before trying to use it.Keyboard closes great, and the rubber thing in the corner that holds the keyboard closed works fine. They probably should have put one on the other side as well, but it seems to work fine. I can only imagine it flying open if dropped at a weird angle from a decently high height.Biggest complaints are that the material is so rigid, it's a bit hard to push the buttons on the side for volume and locking. Not sure if that changes with time- I just got this today. The back handle is soft and comfortable but hard to get your hand under. There's a good bit of weight from the case, as to be expected, so it might not fit as smoothly in a laptop carrier anymore. It no longer fits in mine because it was a slim fit. You should probably use a bigger bag.Giving this five stars overall because despite the drawbacks, it's really nice. There are a few minor things that could be fixed but overall it provides great protection and accessibility. I'd definitely get this over UAG because it retains he ability to use features like the original back hinge, giving you access to the SD card slot. Seems sturdy and i don't feel so scared of it falling anymore. Protected from all sides and corners.Also- I put a screen protector on, and I will say- you should probably put it on AFTER you put on the case. It's pretty tight on the sides so it skims the edges when you push it in, and I've heard of the glass screen protectors cracking when they put them on. There's enough space to put it on after, so just do it then.Hope this helps! 5Not For Surface Pro 2017 It doesn't fit for Surface Pro 2017, maybe because the 2017 version is a tad bit thicker. The camera holes are askew, the pen slot is not designed for the new Surface pen, the type cover doesn't fit and protrudes from the case, the charger port only allows you to plug it in in one certain direction, the beveled edges of the screen aren't covered,and the kickstand isn't able to be bent back to the full 165 degrees. The strip underneath the type cover is so stressed it's bowing inwards. Great product but definitely not for the Surface Pro. They need to upgrade/update it. Everything else is fine, but these small details do matter a lot, akin to a baby vs toddler seat. It won't have the same amount of protection.Does it fit? Yea, I guess.But it wasn't designed for the new Surface Pro. 2This DOES NOT support the Surface Pro 6. I confirmed with Kensington tech support that this case IS NOT designed for the Surface Pro 6. The bottom of the bezel will partly cover the Type Cover keyboard connector of the Surface Pro 6, and requires you to pull down on it in order to attach the keyboard. If the bezel breaks from pulling it down too much, I'm not sure if Keningston will cover it under warranty if you use the Surface Pro 6.I'm not sure why Amazon lists this as being compatible with the latest Surface Pros. 1
