Summary: love my Nook. Only negative it's instruction manual is written in "oriental English", I had to go to Barnes and Noble nearby to get it "translated" so I could figure out how to operate it. Very helpful staff at B&N, she confirmed when questioned I wasn't the first to be unable to decipher the "oriental English" operating instructions.
Summary: Works completely as it should. Ease of use with transferring book. Good battery life. Images come out as if they were printed in B/W paper - but not bad. Can still get to a browser in a pinch - don't expect much if you wanted to surf the web. Not designed for that unless you root the device to do more than org designed too.
Summary: I bought this to have all my books in one place but not all were able to be transferred. Also miss the lighting. I had to buy a separate light to read at night. I have not been able to see how it will be out in the sun that is the other reason i bought this since i was unable to read in the sun.
You almost did not read books before? You will read a lot with this thing!

Summary: So far I like this device a lot. It's great for reading. I almost do not use the GlowLight feature so I do not know how long it will serve - I've heard it got broken pretty soon. However I could not make the Social Network feature have working so I can not use Gmail and browse other than B&N sources. This is why I mark it 4, not 5. But again in terms of convenience for reading, I feel very comfortable with this stuff.
Summary: Достоинства: 1) Подсветка 2) Прорезиненное покрытие лицевой стороны корпуса, которое прикрывает кнопки, предотвращая попадание под них мусора и влаги. 3) Не очень удобно, но влез в обложку Book Armor от Sony PRS-505. Недостатки: 1) Более тёмный цвет экрана. Из-за этого он объективно того же размера, что и у Sony PRS-T1, кажется меньше и вынуждает установить более крупный шрифт. 2) Менее удобное программное обеспечение. Не самого нука, а устанавливаемое после рута.
Summary: I bought this used as a second reader. I already have a Kindle keyboard. I wanted an easy, portable way to get the library books not available for Kindle. So far, I still like my Kindle better. It is easier and more intuitive than the Nook. The home screen is simple and straightforward compared to the Nook Touch. It has taken me some effort to figure out how to navigate around the Nook to do what I want to do.
Summary: Great little e-reader! Pros: Better e-ink display/contrast then the Sony PRS-T1, and Kobo Touch. Easy to set-up and use the menus, wireless, lettering font/size, and does not slow down when using a microSD card with 1620 e-books on it in PDF format, which is why I tried out the Nook Simple Touch and the Kobo Touch.
Summary: Very good deal and finally makes it available to Canada.
Pros: The light weight, size and incredible easy reading screen. eInk is the way to go if you like outdoors reading. The long lasting battery is another plus. Comes in the nice Barnes and Nobel box and not some OEM brown box.
Cons: The lack of a charger. The one we bought direct from Barnes and Noble came with the charger. This one was missing in the box. The cable is there to charge via your USB on your computer or another USB style charger.
