Summary: I loved this tablet when I first got it. It has a big interface, beautiful image coloring when watching videos, and a nice amount of sound. However, this tablet overheats WAY too quickly. And when it starts to overheat there a faint dark line going across the middle of the tablet when holding it portrait sized. When it gets even hotter there are colored lines going all across the tablet!
Summary: I bought this Nook HD+ in the summer for $179 from BestBuy. It seemed like the best value at the time for a 32GB tablet. I thought that it would be good for our trip to Spain. We ended up using it to watch a few movies on the plane and that was it. Fast forward a few months of neglecting using the Nook and the device will not even turn on.
AMENDED -Overheats Freezes Up - Horrible Customer Service
F. E. Fleming, Amazon
17 December 2012
Summary: We had overheating and freezing up problems on a newly purchased Nook HD Plus and Barnes and Noble gave us a refurbished replacement....it too over heated and locked up. Received a 3rd refurbished unit and it locked up also. Called B&N customer service to complain and demanded they send a new replacement unit. They said they would send a new one....they lied not once but three times saying they would send a new one.

15 March 2013
Summary: Yes rarer than a unicorn - that's the availability of the 30 pin proprietary charger cables for the Nook HD+ in the UK since launch .The product is excellent- assuming it has power. If you lose or damage your charger cable be warned you will not easily get a replacement. Since the product launched shortly before Christmas 2012 to mid March 2013 there have been no charger cables supplied to the UK.
