    I have a $100 Dell promotional gift card which I received from the PS4 deal and it is about to expire soon.

    I am thinking of using it on the Dell Venue 8 7840 tablet.

    My out of pocket cost after the sale + 10% off coupon + 10% Discover cashback + $100 Dell gift card is coming out to about $200.

    Has anyone here used this tablet? I dont have too much tablet experience.

    Keeping this out of pocket cost in mind, is it a good buy? Or should I look at other tablets and use the $100 gift card on something else?

    It seems like a good buy for the out of pocket cost but I am afraid that Dell might have inflated its $400 price to begin with? Maybe there are better alternatives?

    I have one. It's a very slick device, it feels very premium in your hands. The bezel is very small, the OLED is screen is gorgeous, the camera is pretty gimmicky though.

    I used that gift card to buy a controller and a few PSN 3 month subscriptions from Dell.com
