Review Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet

 

8-inch versatility. The Dell Venue 8 Pro is an 8-inch tablet based on Intel's current-generation Atom processor. Does the pint-sized Windows 8.1 tablet, which comes with MS Office free of charge, really enhance productivity and is it a worthwhile...

Very bright screen, Good performance, Decent build quality, Microsoft Office is included, Windows compatibility with Office in a small package

Active stylus needs improvement, Small screen for productivity work, No docking station option, No physical video out, Video out would be on the top of our list

Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet Computer- FNDOV8P01H3

 

The majority of Windows 8 tablets and hybrids seen to date have hovered around the same size as most ultrabooks, with 11-inch to 13-inch screens. A handful have gone larger, with midsize 15-inch displays, mostly to good effect, but going smaller -- say...

The tiny Dell Venue 8 Pro has a premium look and feel for such an inexpensive system, offers good stylus support, and runs full Windows 8 in something about the size of an iPad Mini.

A misplaced Windows button throws off the usability, and the 32GB of SSD storage won't hold much. A promised keyboard accessory isn't available yet.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.

Dell Venue 8 Pro Review

 

With Windows PC sales in free-fall as tablet sales soar, the big-name PC makers are desperately trying to woo customers back from their iPads and Android slates.

Nice IPS screen ; Active Stylus support ; Build quality feels solid ; Decent battery life

Stylus sold separately ; No HDMI-out ; We still need (way) more Win 8 apps ; Weaker performance than some ARM tablets

Dell’s $300 Windows 8 tablet has a bright IPS screen and solid build. But the ability to run Windows desktop software doesn’t overcome a limited tablet app selection and Windows 8.1’s difficulties on a small screen.

Dell Venue 8 Pro

 

Smallest form factor for true Windows 8.1 tablets. Portability. Good battery life. Easy to hold and use. Very affordable price. USB charging

Text and desktop mode items are small. Stylus accuracy needs improvement. Only 11GB free after initial setup. No docking keyboard option. USB Host requires dongle. No HDMI or DisplayPort

The Dell Venue 8 Pro is a Windows 8.1 entry-level tablet that certainly corrects the problems that can crop up when from using mobile tablets like the iPad or Google Nexus families. But is it a replacement for a Windows laptop PC? On that, we're not so...

Dell Venue 8 Pro review

 

Not to be confused by the Android tablet with a similar name, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is running Windows. Unlike the difference in operating systems though, there is one similarity to some of those Dell Android tablets, the processor. Dell has the Venue 8...

Bottom line here, the Dell Venue 8 Pro appears to be a decent value for the asking price. We do have to admit though, we struggled a bit to find a place where it truly fits in our work flow. Granted, that is just one specific person, so we have to...

Dell Venue 8 Pro review: a good Windows tablet, but wait for the bug fixes

 

And then there were... four? Once considered a novelty, 8-inch Windows tablets are now everywhere: Lenovo has one; so does Toshiba; and Acer is already o

Bright screen with good viewing angles ; Long battery life ; Great bang for your buck ; Allows for pen input

Awkwardly placed Start button ; Pen input can be unreliable

The Venue 8 Pro offers good value for a $300 device, but we suggest you wait for Dell to issue some bug fixes, and also for more competing tablets to start shipping.

Dell Venue 8 Pro review: Windows 8.1 in a pint-sized package

 

This mini tablet delivers Windows 8.1 without compromising quality, battery life, or performance.

Full Windows 8.1 OS ; Very thin and light ; Solid build quality

Only one USB port for both charging and data transfer ; Optional stylus doesn't live up to expectations

Dell's 8-inch mini tablet packs full Windows 8.1 in a thin and light package with strong performance and battery life. The optional stylus is good only for short notes. not long handwriting or sketching.

Dell Venue 8 Pro Review

 

The $299 Dell Venue 8 Pro is a versatile and affordable 8-inch Windows tablet for work and play that suffers from one annoying design flaw.

Bright display; Lightweight design; Smooth performance; Preloaded Microsoft Office

Awkward home button placement; Mixed audio quality

Dell Venue 8 Pro review

 

When Microsoft announced plans to support 7- and 8-inch tablets with Windows 8.1, I was intrigued by the prospect of a miniature Windows machine. I'm a big fan of Apple's iPad mini, and the idea of having a Windows tablet with touch-optimized and...

Great price for a Windows tablet ; Good battery life ; Solid performance

Broken auto brightness ; No Micro HDMI to make use of desktop apps ; Bad Windows key placement

Dell takes on the iPad... and your desktop PC

Other shortfalls -- such as the lack of a keyboard (a Dell accessory model is now offered) and the aforementioned auto-brightness bug -- have been addressed. The bottom line? If you need the most portable yet full-powered Windows 8 tablet you can buy,...

Runs full version of Windows 8.1, Responsive and fast, Includes Microsoft Office Home and Student

Windows Start button poorly placed, Windows app store smaller than those for Android or iOS, Keyboard an extra-cost accessory
