Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series

 

The Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series is an 8-inch Windows slate tablet featuring a sharp In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen and a sub-$100 price. It's a sweet deal if you're on a strict budget.

Inexpensive. Crisp IPS display. Decent battery life in testing

Middling performance. Audio is tinny

If you've been holding off on buying a Windows tablet until prices have dropped below the $100 mark, your wait is over. The 32GB Dell Venue 8 Pro 3000 Series is an 8-inch model that costs just $99, offers close to 7 hours of battery life and sports a...

Dell Venue 8 Pro (Model 3845) Tablet Review Update

 

Success. Intel's Bay Trail platform and Windows with Bing enable manufacturers to build cheaper and cheaper notebooks and tablets. Dell took advantage of these developments and just released an 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a bright, high-contrast IPS...

Brighter IPS display with higher contrast and stable viewing angles, Reasonably good manufacturing quality, Good battery life, One-year Office 365 license, Low price

1 GB RAM, No video output, High power drain in standby

On the whole, the Dell Venue 8 Pro made a good impression on us. This is a simple Windows 8.1 tablet designed primarily for Internet and media-related applications, on the market for just 160 to 180 Euros (~$199 to ~$224). In order to put such a low...

Solid tablet, a little underpowered

 

The Dell Venue 8 Pro is a good device. The 1200x800 resolution works well for the size and the atom processor is capable if not super fast. Windows 10 works pretty well although it seems to take more memory than Windows 8. The 1 gb of ram that comes...

Horrible Customer Service and Repair

 

I have spent approximately eight hours on the phone, and shipping my tablet back and forth to the Dell service depot. The first issue was a dead/dying Wi-Fi card, when I got my tablet back there was debris under the screen. After being told that wasn't...

Low battery life sank an otherwise good product

 

First off, I'm a fan of Dell, and when I was looking for an 8" tablet, I was happy to find this on in stock and on sale at my local BB. I've got a MS Surface RT, and thought this would make a good complement in a smaller frame. It worked great. Device...

Okayish, if you've never seen an iPad.

 

Glitchy, power hog. The power consumption is so inconsistent I can't even tell what to expect, just plan on plugging it in about ten times more than you would an iPad.

It lasted three weeks

 

I liked the unit. The battery did not last as long as it spec'd out. After 3 weeks it would not charge. So when I tried to get a new one, I was told it was discontinued.

Very affordable

 

The tablet was very affordable, however it seems to have a lot of issues. Sometimes we have trouble turning them on - not easy to use compared to other products. But it was cheap and gets the job done.
