I have the touch cover that came with my 64GB surface. It works well but I can't get used to typing on it. I was working in excel for a couple of hours and it definitely made me want the type cover. My mother upgraded to the type cover and it works awesome. I borrowed it for the night and it is way easier to type on. Also didn't see any problems with it scratching the screen. The touch cover I have does leave those annoying dust squares all over everything though.
