    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.

    Sceeen too small for Windows

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

    This looks like a nice tablet, but the screen is too small for Windows 8.1, it's very difficult to see the menus. The virtual keyboard doesn't pop up when needed, so you have to manually open it up. Windows is best suited on a desktop platform, not on a 7" screen.

    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.

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

    Great tablet comparing to its competitor Dell Venue Pro 8. It comes with MS Office Student version 2013 instead of Office 360. HDMI videos on LCD TV works perfect after the video driver update. The only drawback is the sudden standby screen; it would goes to standby mode while this tablet is its installing huge update from windows. After the necessary windows updates and drivers up date. This tablet works as expected. The best thing about this tablet is the GPS function; it works great without data connection.

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

    I purchased this as a replacement for a Kindle Fire. After researching and reading reviews I found that this had a good reputation for quality, performand and ease of use. I was looking for something more versatile and have found it in this tablet. I love the Windows 8 platform and found it very easy to use out of the box. The system syncs information between it and my laptop also on Windows 8 platform. I have had some issues with connecting to the internet and am still working through those issues, That is the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.
