Pros: Good design, feels solid and thin. Very good looking screen, the resolution isn't super high, (1200 x 800) but it has really good colors and you can't easily see the pixels.
This thing can play Left 4 Dead 2! and you can hook up an xbox controller via a micro usb to usb adapter.
Battery life is very good.
Touchscreen is very responsive, even with 4-5 touch points at once.
I'm usually not a fan of Dell, but I have to hand it to them, this is one of the best made tablet's I've ever used.
Cons: Most of my complaints are with windows 8 itself and not the hardware of the dell venue 8 pro. Minor software bugs here and there, and windows 8 takes some getting used to. Using the normal windows desktop on this tablet is both great because it's the interface everyone is so used too, but it can also be a tad bit tedious because you are touching very small buttons.
Other Thoughts: Windows 8 takes some getting used to, but ultimately I really like it. You get the awesome bonus of working around problems you encounter with the metro UI. For example, the netflix app from the windows store started doing this really weird bug that made it mostly unusable. So i simply opened google chrome on the desktop and watched netflix there!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Rooted, unlocked, running Cyanogenmod. This thing is fast and responsive and you can avoid the bugs of 4.3 almost entirely by using Cyanogenmod. The screen is simply mind blowing.
Cons: No microsd card, but you can simply get a usb micro to usb adapter and plug in an sd card or usb flash drive.
Other Thoughts: The battery is pretty good, it is fast and responsive, the screen is incredible and the cameras are pretty good as well. All this for $229? Who would ever pay for a $349 ipad mini?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this baby online for $60 which was a great deal. I did research before buying an SSD as to which was the most reliable make/model. That would be this one, according to the majority of internet opinions. So this drive is, statistically, the most reliable, and it is BLAZING fast. I havent used an ssd before this, but now that I have it I can see a massive difference in performance.
Cons: none.READ FULL REVIEW
