Can you link the stock rom please?

I went with the pro. The deal I got at the time made it a total no brainer. 250$ price from Best Buy plus a 50$ best buy gift card. Also got two 25$ Google Play codes. Basically got a brand new tab pro 8.4 for a whopping 150$....no way the Tab S is worth 400$.

The week before the tab S came out in retail, Best Buy slashed the price in stores to 249.99$, and for a couple of days, if you ordered it online you got a 50$ gift card sent to you too. It was a crazy deal.

Oh okay... I did some searching and found some deals related to this but already expired. boo hoo.

Not sure what I'm going to do if I'm going to just order another refurb or what. I originally got the GTP because it had infrared but it appears to be kinda proprietary and I'm not a fan of the application. I'll have to do some additional research to see if there are other customizable applications for total home theater control (including HTPC) to see if this model is even going to accomplish what I was hoping for. But getting it NEW for $250 would surely seal the deal for me!

For 8.4 model, Tab Pro is much better because 800 processor is better than Exynos.
For 10 model, they're draw.
AMOLED on Tab S looks better (less red tint) than 8.4, but keep in mind that Tab Pro does not have screen burn problem.
However, there's a minor feature on Tab S a lot of users overlooked: charging port. You can put the unit in landscape and charge.
