Brett Watters: The problem with the Dell which isn't mentioned is the placement of the
Windows button. This is key is any Windows 8 tablet. Standard placement is
on the front panel under the screen. It is then easy to hit. On the Dell it
is a button on the top -- not easily reachable. This means app switching,
getting to the start screen, etc. are all clunky and slow. I tried a Dell
and an Acer in a store and it was an immediate issue.
There are no a number of $99 8" tablets (with only 1GB of RAM) and a number
of $139 to $199 tables with the 2GB. WinBook, Acer, HP Stream, etc. WinBook
has an HDMI, micro USB 2, and a full-sized USB 3 port.
cory bostic: I love my dell venue 8 pro but like Lisa said not too great running games
FibblesGaming: hi lisa im looking for a windows 8 tablet that can run skyrim any
شمسان المعارف: with Toshiba encore
can you connect mouse+keyboard through OTG USB as well as connect the
tablet to wide screen through HDMI port !!??
ridimwave: actually my brother runs DOTA just fine on his own and guess what DOTA is
the only game that matters in the world
Chef Kendra Nguyen: The Dell Venue seems like a nice product.
Jeremy D: Of all the three most successful this Dell Venue Pro 8 :)
Thrutian: Why are Toshiba tablets so ugly?
Pasti II: Dell :
- no gps
- no hdmi
- Z3740D (limited memory bandwith to 6,400 mb/s)
Toshiba encore is pro and the best:
- Z3740 (memory bandwith up 17,066.66 mb/s )
- More resistant
- Micro HDMI (use as desktop , etc )
- Micro sd 64gb
txmoney: Love my Venue 8 Pro but I really wish it had a display port. If the Toshiba
had better build quality, it would be the best of the three.
Stephane Tanguay: Give me 1920x1200 (like Nexus 7 2013) on a Windows 8" tablet and I'm going
to be interested.
eXtRACraFtPT: I chose the Toshiba :D
Sreten Jovanovic: Lenovo Miix 2 8 can charge via usb while using is for something else, like
external hdd of flash drive, you just need otg cable and usb hub, dell can
also, but with some modifications which are very complicated. Lenovo is
just straight foward thing. That's why i chose lenovo.
iJoshDG: The dell is definitely the most attractive
Wurzelzwerg1212: i really like the design of the Dell, but i want a 1080p screen and 4GB Ram
MrEtherlord: Not a gaming tablets? So Android and iOS offer better quality games than
HoMM 5, FarCry 2 or Elder Scrolls? I don't think so.
Sorrow54: i've watched so many reviews now. personally i think im 100 % sure the dell
venue 8 is my kind of tablet.
Gabriele Cannata: One thing the Dell is lacking is GPS, this is quite important for a mobile
device in my opinion.
7in1: Me, Dell Venue 8 pro happy user is writing this from my tablet
camaroone123: Dell Venue 8 all the way for me.
AQIB QADEER: lenovo's the best for me
John Wiskowski: For those looking for Venue 11 Pro reviews, don't blame Lisa. They have
been impossibly hard to come by. There are also multiple versions of the
device with drastically different performance. Look for those reviews to
follow soon. The same can be said for the Acer W4 that just started
John Wiskowski: The Toshiba Encore 8 provided the most stable experience performance and
compatibility wise. The micro HDMI port was not able to mirror out of the
box however, it only functioned in extended display mode. Although heavier,
I did get 12 hours or more battery life.
The Lenovo Mix 2 8 was noticeably thinner and lighter than the Toshiba.
However, driver issues plagued overall performance. The on screen keyboard
never worked as well as expected. Hopefully new drivers will resolve any
vasilios dinis: Great review, I'm excited for the Lenovo Thinkpad 8! HDMI, 3.0, high
resolution.... =D Now, if it came with a dual OS such as Android, I'd be
even more excited! lol
Nyzma Kumala: lisa try play steam games in those tablets with steam in home streaming
LightningArrow AA: Thumbs up for the dell venue pro 8! :)
michael musnick: I bought the Lenovo miix2 and after 9 days the on/off switch wouldn't work.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Johanna Nixon: Lisa, do you think this would be a good buy for my toddler and my tween, or
should I go with an android for learning apps.
Miguel Rendon: Do you know if posible to charge an conect to a screen at the same time
with the miix using a dock..:¿
Will you review the thinkpad 8¿
Phissith Ottha-Hekenon: Lenovo should do Android&window 8 combo with stylus, wireless charging and
capable of doing hot spot! Come out with cheap wireless hard drive as
accessories! Joystick dock for games!
khanalprabhat: Can these divices run vm workstation 8 or higher?
I have vm workstation 9 and I able to run stock android 4.3 with working
Google play app store in my pc. It is working as it should work in any
If it is possible than it could be lot appealing. Windows 8 with android in
vm. And lots of other OS.
murat dogusan: are you interested in asus vivotab note 8?
Malik Usman Gul: Please review the new x1 carbon, and its smackdown with Thinkpad Yoga
Pedro Gomar: I really enjoy your reviews, could you review the Yoga Tablet 10, its no
that high spec'ed but the 18 hour battery and the stand looks
Jolly Kuo: Make a review for the Dell Venue 11 pro! I love your reviews btw its very
omega53: When they can cram a 780ti into a tablet, I will be interested
Alex Kunze: Great comparison as usual, Keep up the great work!
Any chance you will be able to review the Dell Venue 11 Pro?
Eugene Baek: Dell is the worst. Buy a MacBook.
umut agma: I WOULD PAY 50 bucks more for a second micro usb connection.... then you
can use it as a temporary desktop replacement with a bluetooth keyboard and
and sort of display..... I think 1200/800 is OK on 1080p desktop would look
so small....and come on guys it is enough of resolution.... this no video
consuption device that is suitable for that as well as making presentaions
, using printer or so
Andrew Hallenbeck: Great review! Thanks!
Liam F. O'Neill: Lisa, can you please do an update video for the Dell as the second driver
revision for the stylus was released today? Your viewers would love to know
if it is fixed
Jacktheliquor: the toshiba encore is also apparently the only one that can use a microsd
larger than 32gb, when I get mine tomorrow I will test this out just to be
freddywayne: So much inaccuracies! There was never ever a previous Intel (Bay Trail)
SoC! The Dell has the Atom z3740D, while the others have the Atom z3740.
And the Dell uses an active stylus technology by Synaptics!
