Hi I am looking at moving away from the POS traeger I have and buying a new 640s. I would like to hear the pros and cons of this and what issues people have. Also how is the connectivity of the app?
Thanks all!

I am a former Traeger owner and have now owned a 640 for 5 years. No comparison. The Traeger is an entry level unit that can produce a decent cook for the money. The 640 will almost instantly make you a better cook and last much much longer. I guess the only con is the price, but once you get past that you will wish that you bought sooner.

I do not have the s model so cannot help you with thoughts on that...honestly I do not planning on upgrading because I actually like a little hands on without over attending the cook.
