Purchased in August of this year. Only 3 mos old and now wifi will not stay on. Staples stated this is a common problem. Did I buy a dud or is this product not top if the line. This is my first and I am certainly not impressed. Will be looking for higher quality product to replace this one. Any suggestions?

The new chip, snapdragon 652 is around 25-30% more powerfull across the board compared to the last years model with exynos 5433 (also in Galaxy Note 4). It is more power efficiant as well. You will get around 2 more hours out of it for sure. For comparisson, when screen brightness is turned to max. and video is played, after 5 hours the old one has 16% bat. left, and the new one has 36%. Samsung promises up to 12hours of use for the 9.7' model and 14 for the 8.0' model. Expect around 8-10 if watching youtube at 50% brightnes (Wifi). The screen gets really bright for a tablet. The new chip supports fast charging 3.0, but I don't know if the tablet comes with it.
The galaxy Tab S2 VE (valute edition) is in every way better than the older model. Some devices that are also using this chipset are LG V10, Sony Xperia X, Zen fone 3, Galaxy A9 and A9 pro.. It's priced middleranged, but the only thing holding it behind is Adreno 510 with around 150-180g-flops which puts it in the Adreno 418 range in SD 808 (also in LG G4). This doesn't mean it's a bad GPU, but the adreno 530, its bigger brother pushes almost 500g-flops. Adreno 510 has around 30-40% of its preformance on paper, altough the benchmarks often show a smaller delta of 50%, not 60-70. The cpu score (geekbench 3) is around 5% slower than the last years flagship galaxy S6 with exynos 7420. This tablet should have no problem with multitasking, even games will play fine but if you buy a tablet for gaming, you should go with the nvidia tegra tablets. The screen however is the best on Tab S2, followed by the Ipad air2. It's your choice, but almost every review on the internet is about the older model and isn't repesentative for the new one. I've done some extended research since I've bought it last week, I'm getting it tomorrow. Have a nice day, ask for questions if you need anything.
