    My Venue 8 Pro with A01 Feb 2014 stylus and all updated firmware is actually as good if not better than this.

    It's under File->Options->Advanced.. Can't do it for the Metro version yet though.

    Hmm, I wonder if I just simply have a bad stylus and/or digitizer? I'm going to call Dell and see what they will do. I have the latest BIOS A06, but the only firmware for the digitizer is from December 2013, my stylus is an A02.

    Yes, it looks like the Firmware latest is 10-Dec-2013 for the 5130. Definitely see what Dell says about it.

    That was my post dated Mar 20, 2014.

    My A01 version stylus still works as well as the time I received it, and it's still on the original battery that the unit was shipped with. I've been using it every day.

    Got an A02 stylus build date April 2014. It is much much better than my A00. I also noticed that the pen now has a new logo not presented on my old pen: "Anatel" It feels a bit sturdier in the hand. The battery doesn't wobble inside. So far, no hover clicks and pressure sensitivity works great!

    my replacement stylus is a A01 Jan 2014.
    while it no longer hover clicks (rarely),
    it does not always register without tapping,
    rather persistently to get it to wake up
    while handwriting.

    I'm still getting the wobbly ascenders/descenders though.

    The battery that it shipped with only lasted a couple of days.

    My Feb 2014 A01 stylus that I got in early March died this weekend. I called Dell support today and they are FedEx'ing NDA a new stylus. Really impressed with how fast they are handling this. Should have a new pen tomorrow. I hope it sucks less, because that A01 I had really sucked. My handwriting in OneNote makes it look like I suffer from Parkinson's disease.

    All these replacements Dell is having to ship out, the cost of shipping out these replacements... It probably would have been cheaper just to have used a Wacom digitizer from the beginning.

    Today out of the blue 8 padded envelopes from Dell showed up at my front door. I opened one and there is a new stylus(A02, Apr 2014), and assuming rest are the same. WTH?

    I have 3 vp8's all with fairly well working A00 stylus, I have returned two before ending up with a good one(and this was a few months ago).

    Just really puzzled why they sent me 8 more, without me even asking for any replacements.

    Anyone else receive surprise deliveries from Dell recently?
