Summary: Owned it for less than a year. When it stopped working after 3 months, they gave me one that was "refurbished". That one lasted 6 months. So now we try to get another "refurbished" nook. I guess when that one goes, I am out of luck. Their phony guarantee is only good for 12 months - bad investment. I am on to buy a Kindle.
Summary: My daughter wanted this because she loves mine and she loves to read. A good old simple Nook 1st edition was good for her. So i got this for her as a Christmas gift and loaded it up with all of the books I have on mine. The price was very fair and the delivery was fast. The item was as described, in factory fresh, new condition.
Summary: This is without a doubt the worst product design of it's kind. Their design engineers must have stayed up many nites to come up with this on/off switch which is difficult to locate and almost impossible to use. The most basic required function is almost impossible to egage, it simply many times will not connect to your wireless network. Makes a great looking paper weight. BTW it was given to me, I would not buy!
Excerpt: I received the Nook wifi as a gift from work. It is a nice size and ez to hold. It took some time figuring out how to "flip" pages. It has good size memory and will hold ..like a 1000 books, although, I still like the big stacks of books lying around and a regular feels more personnal. At times when fliping pages it flips to many. It also takes some time to turn on, All n' all I prefer a real book.
Excerpt: I love my Nook e-reader! It's around $259 (right now with a free $50 gift card). I like how clear the screen is. very much like reading an actual book's pages. I do wish it the touch screen was a little bigger. It could also use a backlight.
Excerpt: i recived the nook for my birthday this year and have been obsessed with it ever since. i like that you can grab your book before you decide what youre going to read.ive already loaded about $75 worth of books on it and i love that it has wi-fi so i can be on facebook or anyother website on it. you can also hold a big book like harry potter in your hands and its as light as a small childrens book. you can also download a sample of a book to it for free.
