Showcases the best of what you can get in an entry-level Windows tablet

Toshiba Encore 2 Write (10-inch)

from PC Magazine
Among Windows tablet PCs, the Toshiba Encore 2 Write (WT10PE-A264) stands out thanks to its focus on handwriting and information capture, zeroing in on the best uses of the tablet form factor. For the student in a class, the manager in a meeting, or the journalist in an interview, these refinements to handwriting and audio recording are far better than anything else we've seen offered in this category. Combine this with solid performance and long battery life, and it's an easy pick as our Editors' Choice for entry-level Windows tablets... Full review

Information capture taken to a new level

Toshiba Encore 2 Write (10-inch)

from PCWorld
With accurate stylus input, and the apps Toshiba bundles, the Encore 2 Write turned out to be a far more useful tool than I’d expected. Until Microsoft adds whole-document handwriting recognition to OneNote instead of just OCR, it should remain the avatar for live information capture.I heartily recommend it over the regular Encore 2, which is just another Windows tablet, albeit a very affordable one...

A cheap tablet that sacrifices too much

Toshiba Excite Go

from Cnet

The Toshiba Excite Go is a case study in getting what you pay for. If you want an cheap gift for a child who wants to look a pictures and play casual games, it's a sturdy little $100 device that could fit the bill. The performance sits in that nebulous "good enough" space, and the battery life, while meager, is arguably sufficient for something you keep near a bedside table or on the couch.

But make no mistake: this is a decidedly unsatisfying experience. The Dell Venue 7 and LG G Pad 7.0 have their issues and will cost about $50 extra, but offer better displays with higher resol... Full review

Cheap but almost unusable

Toshiba Encore Mini

from PC Advisor
Toshiba's Encore Mini is likely to be the cheapest Windows 8.1 tablet you can buy, but that doesn't mean you should buy it. 7in really is too small for the software we know and enjoy, and we're sure that anyone keen to get Windows 8.1 on a tablet will be disappointed with this one and find that it's almost unusable, so we'd recommend putting your £99 to better use and saving up a bit of extra cash for a Windows 8.1 tablet with a 10in screen or above...

Cuts a fine line between tablet and Windows PC

Toshiba Encore 2 (8-inch)

from Notebookcheck

Although the specifications of the Z3735G processor don't appear to have changed much over the previous, early 2014 iteration the Toshiba Encore 2 WT8 shows us a product based on that SoC that is not as capable as Windows 8 tablets based on the earlier generation. We found differences in Turbo Boost that can affect CPU performance, elements of the GPU (mainly for video processing) that have been removed and with just 1GB of RAM we quickly saw limitations that affect multi-tasking. Given that the price of the Encore 2 WT8 is (at time of writing) not significantly cheaper than more performant... Full review

Despite a nice screen, its performance is hindered by a lack of RAM

Toshiba Encore 2 (8-inch)

from Digital Trends

If you’re looking for a compact Windows 8 tablet at the lowest price possible, Toshiba’s Encore 2 8 isn’t a bad choice, particularly if its asking price dips even more, as other Windows 8 tablets have in the past.

At $180, it’s not exactly expensive for a Windows tablet, but the only thing that really sets it apart from other similar slates is its 1GB of RAM; most older Windows 8 tablets have 2GB. That’s not a good thing, especially when the Encore 2 had occasional performance hiccups in our time with it. It’s possible, though, that future soft... Full review

This Windows 8 tablet goes easy on your wallet

Toshiba Encore 2 (10-inch)

from PCWorld
Full-featured Windows tablets, such as the aforementioned Dell and Lenovo models, can replace a notebook (provided you add peripherals such as a Bluetooth keyboard). I can’t envision Toshiba’s Encore 2 that way—it’s more of a companion device for very light productivity and entertainment. But for the price, that might be enough... Full review

Affordable for 10-inch tablet; Slim and elegant design

Toshiba Encore 2 (10-inch)

from Laptop Magazine
The Toshiba Encore 2 is an attractive choice if you're looking for an affordable 10-inch Windows tablet. For just $269, you get a slim and well-designed slate that runs Windows 8.1 with just enough horsepower to handle word processing, browsing the Web and streaming music simultaneously. A one-year subscription to Office 365 makes it an even better deal... Full review

Usable performance and a generous software bundle for a very tempting price

Toshiba Encore

from PC Pro
Stylus or no, however, the Toshiba Encore is still significantly cheaper than both its main rivals, it (mostly) matches both for performance, and packs in all the connectivity you need to turn it into a lightweight mobile workhorse. With a full copy of Office 2013 Home & Student onboard as well, it's a bona fide bargain... Full review

Good cameras and HDMI-out in a chunky chassis

Toshiba Encore

from PCWorld
Toshiba's Encore 8 packs some nice extras compared to rival 8-inch Windows tablets, but it's thicker and heavier than the competition... Full review
