    This tablet is amazing. I have been using it for over 3 weeks and I am amazed at its speed and functionality.

    I am typing this right now from the TOSHIBA ENCORE, using a Logitech K810 bluetooth keyboard and the tablet plugged into a 40" display at 1920x1080.

    I have made this little machine my main computer, the only tablet on the market right now with HDMI out, without HDMI, these tablets are nothing more than toys.

    Easy desktop machine, plug in the USB power and HDMI, turn on your keyboard/mouse and you are all set.

    ONE COMPLAINT, only ONE USB port and its used by the power. Like I said, you can operate just fine with BLUETOOTH keyboard/mouse and great they included the HDMI. But pretty stupid not to give 2 USB ports, one for power and one for expansion.

    STORAGE: I bought the 32GB version and it came with 11GB free on the internal drive. I couldnt even install Star Trek Online or EVE ONLINE, not enough storage. I installed a 64GB Micro-SD, problem solved. However, be aware that all METRO STORE APPS install to the internal drive, so far this has not been a problem. I even tried hacking the registry to change the save location for the metro store, without success.

    GAMES: Amazing as it is, this device will play modern games at low settings. Touch screens are no good for PC games though, so plan on getting a keyboard/mouse.

    VIDEO: 1080P video plays beautifully on this device, even though it reduces the resolution to the native 1280x800, 1080P plays great through the HDMI.

    AUDIO: The built in speakers are good. The audio out is better than my laptop and the beam forming microphones... Well, my friends on Teamspeak say that it sounds like I am in their room.

    DISPLAY: The display is relatively low res at 1280x800, compared to the average tablet display of today, before I bought the tablet, I wished it had 1080p. However after using it at 1280x800 res, there is a very good reason for the lower resolution. Windows 8.1 is NOT designed for tiny screen, or should I say, the applications you run in windows 8, are not designed for small screens. You will have difficulty touching tiny pull down menus and such, even at this lower resolution.

    That being said, I cant see pixels, so 1280x800 and the IPS display is beautiful. There is one area on my unit that is slightly lighter on a black screen, but its barely noticeable.

    FURTHER STORAGE EXPANSION. I purchased an inexpensive WIFI ROUTER with USB SHARE PORT, so now I have access to a 2TB hard drive for media through a hot swap-able hard drive USB dock.

    WiDi: Useless. I purchased a Beklin WIDI adapter, it lost connection regularly, and when connected, it left artifacts on the screen, even with the tablet a few inches from the receiver. Not only that, if you are looking at one of the other tablets with the idea of using WiDi as a computer monitor, DONT! The widi adapters, even when working properly, have HORRIBLE latency, move your mouse, pointer moves a second later... WiDi is for streaming video and nothing more.

    HDMI: Unless you are going to use this as a toy you carry around to show off to your friends, don't buy DELL or LENOVO, this is the only 8" Windows tablet on market at present, with HDMI.

    WINDOWS 8.1: THIS IS THE SAME OS THAT YOUR LAPTOP AND DESKTOP COMPUTER RUNS, NOT THAT RT GARBAGE. Install just about anything you would on your desktop and put it in your back pocket.

    SIZE: This literally fits in my back pocket, no problem. I wont carry a device that I cant fit in my pocket. If you want to carry stuff in a bag, get a high end laptop with a large screen, massive hard drive and real video card... simple.

    START UP: This device goes to sleep mode when you press the power button, it wakes up as fast as any modern tablet running a pretend OS. But what is amazing is that the device COLD boots in about 5 seconds, that is FROM COMPLETELY TURNED OFF TO LOGIN. The fastest machine I have ever owned. This beats my android phone by about a minute, on cold boot!!!

    This was my choice of new 8" bay trail tablets. I wantdd one with good sound and also hdmi output. This tablet has dual dolby speakers which other tablets do not. However, the sound is not very good and very quiet. The dell venue 8 pro blows it out of the water. The screen also is fsirly poor. You can see little squares in the screen. It is better than the W3 but not nearly as good as the venue or miix2. It is also the biggest and heaviest of the new tablets. If you absolutely must have hdmi then this is your only option. If you do not then there are much better tablets out there.

    Working perfectly so far!

    Comments about Toshiba Encore WT8-A32 8", 32GB Tablet:

    Overall I'm very satisfied with the Encore. It works perfectly, and it's reasonably fast and light and it came with a full version of Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office, which are required for my work. I have yet to try it with a bluetooth keyboard but I will soon. I had to buy a converter for the micro usb port ($3.50) so standard jump drives can be used and I bought a 32 gb micro SD card for extra memory ($18.00). I bought the Encore on sale for $199.00, which was a very reasonable price.

    Pretty darn good tablet

    Comments about Toshiba Encore WT8-A32 8", 32GB Tablet:

    This tablet is a pretty good buy! One issue that I've noticed is that the screen brightness changes on it's own sometimes like it will briefly get dimmer or brighter randomly. Another relatively small issue is that the icons can sometimes take a few "taps" to respond. Otherwise I have been quite pleased with the functionality and ease of use with this tablet. The battery provides a long amount of use between charges... maybe 5-6 hours. All the preloaded apps are the ones I probably would have downloaded anyway. Like I said previously this tablet is worth the price and a solid little competitor among larger brands.

    Comments about Toshiba Encore WT8-A32 8", 32GB Tablet:

    This tablet was great, right out of the box. I loaded Microsoft Office Pro and still have plenty of space for other applications and files. Will add Norton, but was wondering if anyone had installed McAfee security.
    The tablet easily synched to my home network and I have access to all shared files from numerous laptops and desktops that my family uses.
    Still looking for On The Go (OTG) micro USB to USB and Micro HDMI to HDMI adaptors as well as a case, but there are numerous ones to choose from online. All in all a great experience.

    Plan to add more memory and use a stylus

    By Drew

    from Oak Ridge, TN

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Toshiba Encore WT8-A32 8", 32GB Tablet:

    I've been running my Encore for two weeks now and, after a few crashes during the first three or four days, I'm very pleased with it. Nice bright and sharp display, snappy response, good battery life, nice sound (through headphones), good cameras.

    Beware, you get only ten GByte of useable memory -- all of the rest is unavailable, even after I've uninstalled a dozen or so of the apps and programs that I don't plan to use. It won't take many .mp3, .jpg, and video files to fill up 10GB.

    My fingers are a bit too chubby for accurately selecting items on an 8-inch screen, so I've order some styli to use with it. I hope they help.

    I had to do an on-line "repair" of the Micrsoft Office programs before I could use them, but now they work great.

    I haven't tried the GPS yet, and I've read that it can be problematic. I've got my fingers crossed. I need to choose a navigation app and give it a try.
