    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.

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

    I liked this tablet it was easy to set up and use. I got this tablet for college and got windows 365 for it. I decided to link it up with my windows 8 account on my laptop so I could share documents back and forth. But that's where the problems started onced I linked my tablet to my lap top all of my files started downloading to my table taking up all of my memory. Then when I would download a app it would download on my laptop also causing my home screen on my laptop to Change. I would recomed this tablet to anyone looking for a good work/ school tablet. As long as you don't link it with other devices. It has a great video display and battery life and was very simple to use.

    Beware the VERY fragile micro usb port

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

    after owning this for three weeks, i got notice to plug in the charger. the next morning, after charging all night, same notification. thought maybe it wasn't plugged in all the way. unplugged and reinserted charging cable, left it for awhile, no dice. i noticed that when my finger was on the charging cable it would start to charge. as soon as i let go, no charging. tried different cables, same thing. no drops, abuse, or anything. micro-usb port looks fine. all i can guess is that there is a bad connection inside. staples 14 day return policy keeps them safe. Toshiba support is lame. after very clear explanation, was strong armed into paying $30 for a box to ship it to the repair depot. the tech put physical damage on the report. if you buy this, get the square trade warranty.

    How I like my Toshiba Encore

    By Clayton

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

    I like the quality, although its the first tablet I've ever had, the performance seem to be very good. Its faster than my laptop, which I enjoy very much.
    I've only had it two weeks, so that's about all I have to say about it.

    Nice tablet

    By Brad

    from Fitzgerald, GA

    This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

    I like the tablet overall, I love the nice features of it, performs real well, very high screen resolution, so I now have a tablet and a desktop pc both with windows 8 at my fingertips. Wireless internet work good on the tablet, it seems like the tablet has all the functions as a desktop with the same operating system. I like the front and rear camera. Overall the tablet meet my expectations that I can depend on, it comes in handy when I wanna use WiFi hotspots instead of using up my data on my phone. I wish there was a battery indicator to let me know when the battery power is low and needs to be charged. I see it has a HDMI connector so I can hook it up to the TV if I wish to. The images are sharp and crisp, so clear like a TV.

    By Herman

    Verified Buyer

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

    I think this is a very good 8" window tablet. very high screen resolution better than its competitor, both rear and front camera, having 8mp and 2mp respectively, particularly the rear one produces a very sharp and clear image. The best among its competitor. What I do'nt like is that there is no battery charge indicator to tell you when battery is completely charged.
