I have had the device for almost a week now, and I have to say I am impressed with the device. I have looked at the specs and reviews that are available for the competition (dell, Lenovo), and decided to go with this device due to the device having the micro-hdmi port and it was available on sale when I bought it.

Display - This display is quite nice. Like some of the dell venue 8 pro reviews, this screen also looks better if you take off the auto-brightness adjust, however, I believe it still looks good even if you leave it on, which I do to save on battery. The screen does get fingerprints easily (noticed when it is off), however I don't notice it as much when it is on. If I had to say which display looks better between this and the dell, I would say this one slightly wins, although they both display well. Touch responds well, haven't had any issues with it not registering my touch.

Battery Life - About what I was guessing, if you are intensely using it with lots of video/gaming, probably guessing you will get about 5-6 hours, although I haven't tested it from beginning to end. I have been using it mixed with maybe 10-20% using video and the rest internet surfing, and estimate that I get about 7-8 hours or so. If you probably used it all for surfing, I could see you possibly getting 9-10 hours. If you keep the brightness on high the entire time, your battery life will be worse.

Start-up/Idling - If you idle by just turning the screen off (i.e. hitting the power button once, like on a phone), then it discharges quicker than I would like, and I imagine after 2-3 days it would be fully discharged. However, the device start up from turned off is pretty fast, so I just shutdown the device when I am done for the day.

Just bought it from Amazon.
I really love this device. I want to use it for presentations and I don't like carry my 15inch laptop to school just to open a word or excel file.
I did a long research over similar devices, like Miix, Venue, Acer W4 and I choose this one because of GPS and micro HDMI. And I am really glad I made this choice. It feels comfortable in my hands, it is noticeably heavier than Ipad Mini, but weight didnt bother so far.
One of issues is hearing a cracking sound (sometimes) when touching corner of screen which I don't like.
Battery is really good, performance is superb! and interestingly even for all old windows applications (not metro ones) I clicked with 100% accuracy on menus, buttons and everything.
Because I needed to demo some of my applications written in OpenGL, I searched internet and some websites say it has Open GL ES, but it actually support OpenGL up to ver 4.0. And interestingly I could run Skyrim on it, with low setting really good!

Update 2:
Good news! You can make screen mirroring (either via hdmi or miracast) with installing newest intel drivers. Unfortunatly toshiba did not as of now provide them. But oyu can grab them from dell venue 8 pro website (.exe file called Intel Platform Driver Installer , version 12/2/2013) and extract content of .exe file, then with have disk method update graphics driver from .inf file located at \GFX directory.
Although you have to change resoulutions from intel graphics options.

Update 1:
I havent heard that cracking sound anymore. Maybe it just takes time to fix itself.
Also If you are having trouble with connecting your mobile phone to device with bluetooh (which I had with my Galaxy S4) try searching for
"iogear bluetooth driver" it is actually lat4est version of broadcam bluetooth I could find. Which added many more profiles to bluetooth stack.

I would say it's durable based on how the box hit the ground from the delivery guy and it still works!

Screen is crisp and bright. Autobright can be turned off in settings. Screen looks good for movies and at night. Screen calibration works well, which was necessary to keep from nonread/misread touches. Screen does acquire fingertip smudges, so a good soft swatch of cloth is a must for keeping it clean for movies.

Sound is not deep but volume is good and loud. I plan to get a BT speaker unit for it eventually, but until then it's quite useable.

Both photos and videos I've taken are good quality.

The HDMI out works well, but like some have said you are hard pressed having the usb and hdmi used at the same time, they're so close together.

Setup was very quick and easy. The Metro side is smooth running, I use it the most. I found plenty of apps and games on the Store for free that suit me. I uninstalled the programs I didn't want, which weren't that many. I use my Encore for entertainment like web, music, podcasts, movies. For business-like, the mail app and Office Excel and notepad on the desktop side work for me.

I use the BT Microsoft Wedge keyboard and Sculpt Touch mouse for using the desktop side, both pair as expected. For a case, I'm using the Case It small laptop bag that was on lightning deals since I'm waiting for a true Encore case. It's adequately padded and works, carries the Encore as well as keyboard/mouse etc.

Really sorry I didn't catch the price drop, but OTOH it did arrive on time and undamaged. So for anyone deciding, now is a good time for the 32Gb while it's under $300. I read at that Staples had it with a $50-off coupon and some got their Encore for $250!
