    Dell's Venue 8 Pro is a great deal!!!
    The Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet is a Windows 8.1 tablet. This is a full blown Windows tablet, not a Windows RT tablet. It will run any of your Windows programs that you have space to install and it comes with a license for Office 2013!!! That is the big rub about this tablet. By the time you install Office and a couple of apps you only have about 4 gig of space left on the internal storage. You can install an SD card up to 64 gig but even then that isn't that much space. You won't be putting your space hogging games on this device even if it could run it. You will have to be careful to ensure that when you install a program that you install it to the SD card. I have several gigs of music and videos and still have some space. The documentation says WP apps (8.1 apps) do not take up space but they have to take up some space...somewhere. The tablet is responsive and works well. I installed my music software, Finale, on it and it works fine albeit the screen is smaller. I ordered the case and active stylus from Dell and will report on this when they come in later. I think the active stylus will let me get tighter with some of the functions. I had an issue on my first plane flight with it...once I put in airplane mode the WiFi didn't work when I took it out. I had to update the WiFi driver to fix that but once it was fixed it appears to be fine now. It only has a micro USB slot but I have ordered a micro USB to female USB and will see how it handles an external hard drive and other peripherals. I planned on using it to talk to PLCs (programmable logic controllers) and will use a USB to serial adapter to communicate with the PLCs. Overall this is a great tablet/laptop alternative if you understand the limitations of the product. I haven't run the battery down so I'm uncertain of the total battery drain but have used it extensively and not seen any major battery issues. For the price, you can't beat it until they go on sale again. Overall it's a good full blown Windows tablet that is serving my needs

    it was awesome, until it stopped holding a charge
    I loved it, bought it for work as an insurance agent, it was great for 6 days. On the 7th day it stopped holding a charge and now won't turn on at all. Upon calling Dell I was told I have to send it back to them for repair. So frustrating as it is brand new.

    PC in an inexpensive tablet

    Picked this up Black Friday for only $229. It functions extremely well as a Windows 8.1 tablet. Came with 8; upgrade to 8.1 was easy. Comes with real versions of Word and Excel which is a plus for me. But to my surprise it also functions extremely well as a desktop when paired with a Plugable USB Docking station. Using a Plugable UD-3900 docking station, a 19 inch monitor, usb keyboard & usb mouse turns the tablet into a dual monitor desktop - tablet is monitor 1 and 19 inch is monitor 2. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPPY4m8iY0k for Plugable "plug" from the manufacturer on this setup. Only con is the storage on this model, only 32GB, and the OS/installed software consumes 2/3's of the storage leaving you only about 10GB for personal use. I added a 64GB Sandisk Ultra micro SD to increase personal local storage. Use Microsoft Skydrive and this is an all around solution that really works for web, email and MS Office work. Mobile when I want but I can use a real monitor/keyboard/mouse for desktop work.

    Small and powerful tablet PC, love it

    I got this tablet during Thanks Giving sale from Walmart for $230 and have been using for over 3 weeks. It is a great little yet powerful tablet. I use it for general browsing, skype, music, youtube and also playing games. I like the ability to access and play music from my desktop, use Picassa, Chrome and the skydrive synchronization. Build quality by Dell is pretty good. The screen is bright and audio very loud for the size. This tablet PC runs the full version of Windows 8.1 which is great as legacy applications are supported. Further Windows 8.1 made good improvements from its predecessor. Intel Baytrail processor is pretty fast and offers good battery life. Windows App store is decent. In addition I run Android apps using Bluestacks emulator. Haven't tried Miracast wireless streaming to TV yet but intend to get the Netgear PTV WiDi adapter. The tablet comes with one micro usb port and SD card slot. My suggestions for future improvement for Dell are to have 64GB as default and have 2 usb ports. Also provide recovery image in SD card so additional disk space can be freed up.

    Great tablet

    Well I've had this tablet now for about 2 weeks and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I didn't know if the Intel Atom processor was going to be up to the task of running a full version of windows, but I have to say that this little tablet is very quick. Switching between apps is quick, web pages pull up quick, and programs don't seem to have any lag. I use this tablet for small tasks while working as well as for media consumption and web browsing. The battery life seems to be close to the stated 10 hours but I usually stop using it before the battery hits 40% which is about 5-6 hours of use. I thought the 2 GB of memory would be an issue but so far with everything running and several apps open at the same time, I have only had it using 1.3 GB. Beware that using the desktop on a screen this small will be pretty difficult since everything is so small but that is to be expected. You really would need a wireless mouse to make it work well. The tablet is really lightweight and very easy to use with one hand. It works well in portrait and landscape modes. I'm not a user of any particular brands of items so I have no loyalty to any brand but this is a very well built and solid feeling tablet and I think dell did a great job.

    very impressed

    Can't beat the value, very powerful 8 inch tablet. I have no complaints for the price. Personally I do not run legacy apps on such a small screen and they take up a lot of disk space. There are plenty of start menu apps for what I do. I have attached a wireless mouse and keyboard using an OTG adapter and USB hub and office works fine as well as my brother laser printer, but you can't use these and charge at the same time, due to only 1 micro USB output. There is no video out, like a HDMI or VGA, but if you need to use another display you can get a miracast receiver for a TV and use the built in wireless display capabilities of the Intel CPU or get a Pluggable USB video adapter. This tablet is comfortable to hold and there are lots of good inexpensive cases and Bluetooth keyboards. Battery life is good, my only complaint is the hard drive fills up fast, but you can add a micro SD card which helps or use onedrive or other cloud storage. Build quality is good and the tablet feels good in your hands and the back has a rubberized material.

    Dell Venue Pro8- Perfect Office on the Go

    The new Dell Venue Pro 8 is a fantastic productivity too, especially if you need to take your "office" with you. With the full version of Microsoft Office 2013, you can save, edit & create documents, spreadsheets & presentations on the fly. The screen is pretty small, have had to increase font a few times to read. Lasts about 9 hrs if you set brightness to 60%. Extremely light & portable. I also bought the Asus bluetooth keyboard, doesn't specify for Dell Venue, but it fits in slot perfectly. Windows 8.1 already loaded so you don't have to deal with an upgrade. You can tweak settings so Win8.1 looks & feels like Win7. I still use my Nook for most reading, music, videos & internet, larger screen easier on the eyes. Dell got this one right and will definitely lead the pack for a while. I haven't seen any other company do what Dell has done with the Venue Pro 8 (I have 64gb version). Easily expand storage with microSD slot, put a high speed class10 in mine and it is perfect & fast. You can't go wrong. Plus I bought this when Wal Mart had it on sale for $229 a couple weeks ago.

    Great product, especially for the price!

    I wanted a tablet that could also function as a full computer (like a laptop). This one fills the bill for a lot less than I expected to pay. It is a full windows 8.1 machine and even comes with Office 2013 Home and Office, which is worth over $100 alone. I purchased a bluetooth keyboard and a travel mouse, and I can use it just like a laptop. The screen is bright and sharp (once you turn off auto brightness and adjust it yourself). The only reason I did not rate it a 5, was because I have had to go to Dell tech support a few times to resolve issues that were mainly software compatability problems with Windows 8.1 (updates should be coming soon), but the tech support was excellent and they solved my problems. The camera stopped working once, but they got it going again. I'm only a couple weeks in, but I'm very happy with it at this point.

    Nice tablet for the price

    Pros: Well built, feels solid Like the non-slip backing Excellent display Good tablet size Pretty darn fast So far great battery life Ability to connect USB devices, keyboard, mouse, flashdrives etc (via a $2 OTG cable not included) Can run 3rd party programs just like a PC Basically a miniature PC with Windows 8.1/MS Office in your hands MicroSD slot Seems to already have good accessory choices (although many are 3rd party) Cons (Venue 8 Pro): Would be nice to be able to charge/power the tablet and also have things plugged into the USB. You cannot do these things at the same time, it's either or. If I had it to do all over again, I would have opted for the 64GB model. Cons (Windows): These are not related to the Dell Venue but rather Windows/MS itself Windows 8.1 takes some getting used to Windows 8.1 on this screen size is difficult to see Tough transition from Android devices and apps Windows app availability growing but not all that great Really need a stylus to hit all the small boxes, pull down menus, etc on the screen. Can be tricky with just a finger. Just picture everything you currently see on your desktop or laptop monitor using Windows and Windows-based programs condensed on an 8" tablet. That is what this is (but it is clear).

    Overall, a very capable device

    The good - It is responsive, runs anything I throw at it with no issues. Very impressive on that account. Boot up is super fast. Battery life is very good. Screen is not as good as more expensive devices but it is more than adequate. The bad - The stylus is not worth the trouble. Could use more ports. The materials online talk about bitlocker encryption, but the Standard Windows 8 that comes with the tablet does not include bitlocker. To upgrade to 8 Pro is $100. There is little room left on the SSD after Windows, but so far I have not had issues running out of room, but I am not an app hog,. I store documents, pictures, etc. on the removable mini SD card. Bottom line, I am very happy with the device. IT IS NOT A LAPTOP REPLACEMENT, but it works perfectly (after the upgrade to Win 8 Pro) for what I wanted it for, secure access to email and light duty tasks when out of the office. Cranking up my laptop takes more time that most of these tasks. This is instant on, I have it paired with my phone for Internet Tethering, and within seconds can read and respond to secure messages that my phone can't open. It is a lot easier to type on than my phone as well. This may be the device that allows me to give up email on my phone all together. It is also good for webbrowsing etc. I have not tested it yet presenting powerpoints using Miracast, but it is on my list to do.

    Great for the price

    I kick myself for not going for the samsung I was looking at but oh well water under the bridge. This has worked well so far (am not sure what people would run on this that would use all the memory as I haven't even come close) All I do is check e-mail and surf the net, watch videos and so far so good. It has frozen a couple of times but it always (so far) has unlocked after I left alone for a couple of hours. Like I said so far so good I have no problems. I would reccomend the 2 year warranty extension though just to be safe, doesn't seem like it will take too much to break it.

    Had to return the venue 8 pro BSOD issues

    The 32GB version is too small. It was almost full in one day. I also had BSOD issues every 5 minutes after one of the dell updates. It may have been windows 8.1 upgrade issues also, as they both download and installed many files. Returned it for a refund. YMMV The only browser that is finger zoomable is the internet explorer browser. Firefox and chrome can only be zoomed in or out using a + or - click box. I hope that changes in the future. 8 inches seems like a very good size, as I can hold it in one hand to view and it is light. Battery life is ok, but not all day life. It would be better if it had a GPS built in for travel. Everything else is good, except the BSOD issues of course.

    1. It runs full Windows 8.1, the same as your desktop runs. Which means if you can put it on your desktop, you can put it on this tablet.
    by Razzellu
    2. Yes. The apps you cited (Skype, Netflix, Angry Birds) are all available from the Windows store, as are popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, ESPN, Kindle, etc. Of course Microsoft also provides its own optional apps for everyday tasks like mail, calendar, notes, camera, photos, maps, web browsing, music, etc. In addition to these tablet/phone apps, you can also use traditional Windows desktop software (i.e. anything you have on your current laptop or desktop will work, including Office, Photoshop, iTunes, and whatever web browser you like). Google Play apps and services are only available on Android devices (just as Apple's iOS apps are only compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod devices).
    by CKez
    3. Google play is for Android devices only. This version of Windows 8 is not the RT version. You should be able to install Skype, Netflix, and possible apps like Angry birds, but also run full programs.
    by TechMatt
    4. Being that this is a Windows tablet, you will have access to everything in the Windows ecosystem (apps, programs, etch). With that said, Google Play is part of the Google ecosystem. I haven't done it yet, but others have posted in reviews that they have installed iTunes. As for your more standards apps like Skype, Netflix, etc...they are available as either apps or web sites.
    by DesertThirst
    5. Ther is a 3rd part app to access Google Music. Skype is intergrated. There is apps for Netflix and Angry Birds. If you want a tablet for apps, go with a Nexus 7 or iPad mini. This is a PC.

    1. This has built-in WIFI so a separate USB Wifi card is not needed. I'm not sure if it can take a cellular air card though.
    by MrNoDoubt
    2. You shouldn't need to, it has built in WIFI. If you're talking about using an adapter for a cellphone network, it will work if there are drivers for you're unit but you'll need a Micro to full size USB cable to hook it up. I use mine on my home network and with a hotspot on my phone all the time, no wireless card needed...
    by An anonymous customer
    3. WiFi is built into the Venue. MiniUSB port's power output too low for powering anything but a thumb drive.
    by Sheabo1111
    4. Rob, You do not need a wireless card as the Venue has built in WIFI (a,g,n). However, It does NOT have 3G or 4G capabilities so you cannot access the internet unless you have access to a WIFI signal. Dell has said they will release a 4G model in the future but the current model cannot be upgraded to 4G. I doubt you would be able to get a USB WLAN card (3G or 4G) to work with the current Venue but you can always do what I do -- use my current smartphone as a WIFI hotspot.

    1. No, I didn't have a pen on mine. You can add one though via http://www.dell.com/us/p/dell-venue-8-pro/pd. This is a great device that I've been shocked how well it performs. Enjoy if you get it!
    by ca4ukinwa
    2. Dell sells the pen. $70
    by jccoyle
    3. No, the active pen is sold separately. If you're running desktop programs I recommend you get one. But if you just use the apps that come with the tablet (or downloaded from the Store) you might not need one.
