    UPDATE:
    Toshiba has updated Windows 10 drivers for Encore 2 Write
    Link to drivers
    So I think it is safe to upgrade now.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Original thread:

    I upgraded my Encore 2 Write WT8PE-B to Windows 10

    Currently, the front camera and wireless adapter do not work. Toshiba apps (TruNote, camera app, etc) are no longer visible in the store, nor can they be searched or updated.

    So stay away from upgrading if you can.

    Other Encore 2 Write owners, have you upgraded to Windows 10? Do you experience similar issues?

    Me too, I was planning the update for today, but I'll wait a while.

    Front camera now working. WiFi still disappears after sleep. Have to reboot every time when WiFi adapter fails. No updated Broadcom abgn wireless driver for Win10 from OEMs at this point.

    Other than the WiFi issue, the system is as stable as Win8.1

    Toshiba has updated Windows 10 drivers for their current product line. I've included driver link in the OP.

    Just a heads up from my experience. However my unit is the Japanese dynabook WT8PE-B version, so it might be different from most of you guys.

    I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 this morning, after finish upgrading below are the problem I face. Please keep in mind that the Windows revert back to its default language which is Japanese (which I cannot read) and I use Google Translate to navigate through the settings so I these problem might not be an actual problem but my own inability to use Google Translate to navigate.
    1. WiFi does not seem to work, as I try to change Windows language to English but it require for me to download some package again. (I also tried with the edge browser but nothing loads)
    2. Windows 10 seems to be much slower than Windows 8.1 on this tablet, I have upgrade my main computer to Windows 10 and performance was not an issue. (Might be some driver issue as I do not believe that Windows 10 uses that much more resource compare to Windows 8.1.
    3. The screen of the tablet does not seem to turn off when pressing the physical power button which I set it to "Sleep" button.
    4. The battery drains very fast and the tablet become hot (probably due to the tablet not sleeping when it was supposed to).
    Because of these issues, I have immediately recover back to Windows 8.1 (FYI every thing seems to be back to normal after back to Windows 8.1, however I just did that 5 mins ago..). Also there is still an option to upgrade to Windows 10 still, I might try that again in a few months, as mention before, I believe its the issue with the drivers.

    I have the same setup but it upgraded fine to English UI with the exception of the lock screen, since I read Japanese it doesn't bother me. You can fix it in language settings. Select 英語 and then in オプション set it to デフォルト.

    Nope, not a single one, it is smooth as butter pecan ice cream.
