I know that the white one for £199.99 at JL and Amazon got posted to death a few weeks back but this is the cheapest that i've seen the black one - which in my opinion looks better.

It really is a cracking tablet, excellent performance, amazing screen and respectable battery life.

I'd pay the extra £40 and get the Tab S... Amoled screen and and extra gig of RAM

I haven't seen this in person but the galaxy tab s looks amazing, much better screen quality than ipad....plus its thinner

Best place to get a tab S from????

The Tab S it is then (I didn't take a lot of persuading eh?). And now to find a good deal for the 10.5 in bronze.

This is a good deal for the Pro though. A bit of warmth is heading your way for this deal

Is the tab s worth the extra money over this?

This is nice, but the S is amazing. I would go with the S... once you go OLED... you ain't coming back. oO

The pro has the adreno 330, the tab s has a Mali 628.
I have an s5 which runs a 330, and graphically it is much better than my tab s , not a direct comparison I know, but they're both running the same resolution . ( tested using the anomaly 2 benchmark app. )

Immensely impressed with my tab s over previous tab 3 8". ( ee tempted me with a 25 a month deal for 10gb. Tethers too

£203.99 at Handtec. Slightly more than I wanted to pay for a new tablet but 8.4" screen slighly bigger than the 8" I was after, Cyanogenmod and rooting easy and a nice resolution.

Will the rumoured new Nexus will be anything like this price?

Usally nexus tablets around 189.00 might be worth the wait

This was at 7" though. Also the N5 cost considerably more than the N4 at launch. I have a feeling the next wave won't be quite the bargain the originals were and could be 9" up costing even more.

The 2012 Nexus 7 32GB was 200 quid upon release, and as they don't have expandable memory you pretty much have to buy the 32GB version. The 2013 Nexus 7 cost even more on release.

If you're willing to wait, the price will come down but demand is likely to keep it high until after Chrismas at least.

The Tab S is still available direct from Samsung with the 20% off code until 30th September. I'd highly recommend it

Caved in and ordered from Expansys (Handtec out of stock). Hardware looks ideal for me and once CM is on there it ought to be a decent upgrade to my N7 2012. Couldn't really justify the extra cost of the Tab S.

John Lewis just dropped price to £199. Don't forget that's including their 2 year guarantee and 90 day return policy!

Got the black one delivered from Expansys yesterday. Cyanogenmod installed and working well. Lovely tablet and with the hard buttons the screen is maximised. Very pleased with it so far.

Interesting. I been weighing up whether to do this. Have you noticed any improvements in responsiveness? I guess too early to know if any impact to battery. I take it you weren't concerned about invalidating warranty?

I use CM on every device I have and have been a big fan for a long time. Didn't even boot this to the Samsung version with Touchwiz which I've seen once and that was enough - I really just wanted the hardware. Battery seems fine although perhaps not as good as the Nexus 7 (albeit with smaller screen). Lovely and smooth which I'm sure the Samsung version is also. I have CM running on my wife's Moto G and to be honest it's not quite as smooth as stock in particular in one game she likes so I may put that back to stock. If there was a hardware problem with the Pro I'd put stock back on it and send it in.
