2 out of 5 eggsDont Waste Your Money

Pros: Its a tablet

Cons: It has a failed video processor that Dell can't seem to fix and won't send me a new one. So technically it's just a $500 piece of plastic.

Other Thoughts: I have bought a vast majority of my equipment from Dell over the last 16 years. Their quality and customer concern is not what it once was.

1 out of 5 eggsLeft speaker did not work out of the box

Pros: Fast, Windows, MS office, Flash.

Cons: Crash, Crash, no recovery from bitlocker mode without additional hardware from manufacturer, Crash. The left speaker did not work when I unboxed.

Other Thoughts: If the device is in bitlocker mode, do not call Newegg. You will have to call Dell, as this is over Neweggs head.

5 out of 5 eggsSnappy and surprisingly good

Pros: Bought this as an Android replacement and I wanted to move to a tablet that could be productive when off the network. I also needed to be able to RDP into a Win 8 machine.

While I approached the idea of moving to a Windows machine reluctantly, I've been really pleased with how it works out. It installs and runs native Windows apps - I have put Lightroom on it for tethered shooting. I have also installed Chrome and am getting a big chunk of my Google functionality through that.

While everyone knows Win8/Metro apps are relatively sparse, my important ones are there -- Kindle, Evernote, Skype. These apps run well (Kindle app is different than Android and easier to hide the book ads).

But the real focus here is on the device itself. The form factor is a little thick, but manageable. The rear cover comes off very easily and you can see the WiFi antenna as well as the battery. It doesn't look like you can stick more RAM or another internal drive on it, but it is a tablet after all, not a laptop.

The headphone jack is great -- my Bose QuietComfort headphones have a habit of cutting out a channel on some devices (like my phone), but on the Dell it's flawless stereo. The built-in speakers are adequate, but I went with a Bluetooth unit (no trouble pairing) or used headphones.

The screen's sensitivity is just right for my needs -- not a lot of pressure but not on a hair trigger either. The 1920x1080 resolution looks great, and an HD movie was stunning and sharp. My ripped DVDs also look great. The viewing angle and brightness are really good - enough so that I'm thinking of getting a privacy shield for plan flights.

I'm especially impressed with performance/power ratio. The internal MMC drive gives you power efficiency and speed, and the Atom processor regularly self-overclocks to 2.4GHz while doing heavy lifting. Obviously with 2GB of system RAM, there's going to be paging and the MMC makes for a good swap drive.

The 5GHz WiFi is really good, better than my Android phone (a current Droid RAZR). Interestingly, the 5GHz does better than the 2.4GHz in parts of my house where I'd expect the lower frequency to do better.

The drive comes encrypted, BTW, and that's great for protection. The system is still fast with that enabled, which would have been my main concern.

I'm not finding lag to be a problem, and it's already giving me desktop capabilities in the palm of my hand.

Cons: You notice the thickness and weight immediately, one enhancing the other. The lack of a built-in stand makes it more obvious yet. I found it easier to rest the unit on my body and hold it up with one hand. I don't think I could hold it one-handed in the air for long and feel comfortable.

The microSD-Card is really tough to access. I had to find and murder a paper clip to insert in the hole that opens the microSD tray. Once out, you have to make a mental effort to note which way the card goes since it slides completely out. On the flip side, once in, it's really in (and loads very easily).

The biggest con for me is the lack of true integration between hardware and software. The device needed a BIOS update, which required navigating the Dell app (not a Metro app). That went well, but the chipset driver update did not, and I was certain I had bricked the machine especially when BitLocker came up in recovery asking me for my key to get at the encrypted hard drive. Fortunately, the OS disabled the HD video device and let me back in; reinstalling the chipset update fixed the issue.

But who would venture into this kind of trouble normally? When an Android device gets a firmware update, it all comes at once. Who would think to get a chipset update, or give up when the update fails and send it in for an RMA?

You do need the updates -- I had a tablet BSOD when it had trouble accessing the camera. The patches seem to have fixed it.

I'm surprised at the wireless. 5GHz won't work well through too many walls, and the 2.4GHz reception on this device doesn't do as well as my phone or older ASUS transformer.

Although I like being able to get in the back of the device, I'm somewhat concerned in how the back doesn't seem to make a tight seal. How would it do with a spill on the counter (or on the plane)? I don't want to find out!

If I could, I'd only give the unit 4.5 stars because of the cons. But so far, I'm getting fast network access (10ms latency/57MB down/11up), desktop software, access to my apps, preserving a chunk of my Google experience, and a great screen so the cons temper my enthusiasm without killing it.

Comes with McAfee 30-day subscription. Removed it and freed up a chunk of RAM. You need to disable services even after you uninstall.

Other Thoughts: I once wondered which was worse - being stuck with an Apple device or a Dell? Now that I have this Dell, I feel like I've become one with the Borg.

Dell could have improved things by having tighter integration with the updates, or MS could take this on under a contract so that Windows Update handles it all. Just the fact that the Dell software isn't a Metro app says plenty.

For all of the pain, the ability to run Windows apps natively and have a robust off-line experience really showcase the fact that you are compromising much less by going with a smaller device that doesn't kill the battery off.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best tablet and portable computer I have ever owned.

Pros: -It's fast. Very fast.
-It runs games well
-The battery lasts forever
-Windows 8.1 really shines on this device if you're willing to relearn how to use a computer.
-It comes with MS Office preinstalled and it a product key so it's not preinstalled trialware, which makes this thing PERFECT for my business trips.

Cons: None that I can think of yet. I will update this if I come across anything.

Not a con of the device, but Windows 8.1: You can't Ctrl+Alt+Del or other multi-key hotkeys with the touch keyboard. I have a Bluetooth keyboard now, so it's a nonissue.

Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to spend $500 on a tablet when there are much cheaper options out there, such as the Asus Transformer T100, but the 1080P screen changed my mind. After using it for a few days I feel that this is faster than a similarly priced laptop that may or may not have a touchscreen- a necessity for windows 8.

At first Windows 8 was frustrating because the UI is so considerably different. The lack of a Start menu doesn't bother me since you can just use the search charm on the right to search for whatever you need.

I didn't want to spend the money on the keyboard and opted for a Kensington Keyfolio Expert case which has a keyboard built in and works great. It's designed for 10" tablets but it fits snug, but well.

I don't think the Dell keyboard with a battery is necessary since I've not killed the battery yet. After 5-6 hours of browsing and downloading/installing programs the battery percentage was still in the 60s.

The only real bloat that I felt the need to uninstall was McAffee.

Atom chips have come a long way! I can play Stick of Truth and Borderlands 2 smoothly and the only setting I dropped below default was the resolution.

The contrast ratio could be better but I think I'm just spoiled by my other devices with better displays.

I am more happy with this computer than I have ever been with a new computer. Even rigs that I built myself.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive consumption device!

Pros: Light weight
Great screen
Battery life
Viewable screen is 'just right' in my opinion
Windows 8.1 out of the box
Intel Atom processor is more than enough to power this device

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This comes with Win8.1 32-bit due to the 2GB of RAM limit on the unit. I do not see 2GB as a hindrance to the device. I was shocked at much the Intel Atom processor has improved over time. This was a gift from my wife (purchased elsewhere) so I was a little hesitant when I saw it had an Atom processor in it. I have no hesitation or concern about it and the 2GB of RAM has yet to be a problem.

Since it's full Windows, I have a mix of Modern/Metro apps and desktop apps (Office 2013 Home) installed. For this reviewer, Windows 8.x is not a con. I know it can be polarizing topic, but it really shines on this device.

For me, this is a consumption device. I am not solving world hunger or world peace on it and it keeps up with me around every turn. Whether I am streaming a movie and doing email in split screen, I have yet to encounter a slow down.

Dell Stylus (not included) is very finicky. The Dell case (not included) covers the back only, but it is snug and improves your grip on the device while carrying it around. Folio cases are hard to find, but Moko Cases said they had one coming around the end of March 2014.

5 out of 5 eggsTop Notch Windows 8 Tablet

Pros: Bought the Venue 11 Pro after good experience with Acer W700 Pro tablet and a poor experience with another name-brand unit (too many bugs and glitches.) So far the Dell has been superb!!! Tablet is as described on line -- good solid unit with full size USB 3.0 plug built-in and a drawer for a mini-USB flash card (up to 64Gigs, so the 64 Gig tablet effectively is a 128 Gig.) Basic unit has more user space than most and includes software to make recovery USB key and to remove recovery partition for extra space if desired. Display is HD and clear, but best if you turn off the light sensor and fine tune it yourself to your taste. The Atom Z3770 seems to perform just fine. I added the Mobile keyboard with battery and have no idea how long it will all run, but I'm sure 15-18 hours wouldn't be out of line.
Runs Windows 8.1 (32-bit) and come with Office Home and Student 2013. NOT -- can you believe it -- loaded up with junk!! And you can take off the back and change our the battery if needed on the tab itself.

Cons: Don't have any real complaints though I don't have the stylus advertised. Heard they had problems with the stylus (with the earlier Venue 8 tablets) and are working on a fix now. Not a big issue with me since I can't draw anyhow!! Using a capacitive stylus as desired in the meantime. A personal thought would be that I really wish the price had been about $100 less or that the keyboard/aux battery (which is pricey at $150 or so) had been included in the basic package.

Other Thoughts: Best thing about the whole package is that Dell has provided driver downloads, manuals, forum discussion sites and all the other stuff needed to support a new product. We all know these tablets are going to have a few glitches and owner happiness is related to being able to find out how to deal with the glitches. And Dell obviously has tried to provide all the "wishes" most of us have for our systems!

I have had -- and still have -- a bunch of tablets. Most of them are the best of the best.

I think the Dell Venue 11 Pro has the chance for me of being the "best of the best."
