Good e-reader, but locked down and low battery

April S., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Summary: This product falls in the middle of liquid ink readers and tablet devices. The unfortunate part of compromise is that no one gets what they want. You don't get the readability of eInk in direct (sun) light, ease on eye strain, and long battery life.
  • Pros: It's color, works as a great e-reader, supports apps that connect to my local library for e-book checkout, ergonomic, and lightweight.
  • Cons: Not very fast, but I don't know if it's supposed to be. Low battery life (about 4-hours between charges). Locked down on B&N's system. The Nook HD has an open Android system, allowing you to use apps from the Google Play store. But then again, it's a color e-book reader, not a tablet computer.

Nook

Carol, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this for my grandson for Christmas. We returned it. Every app you download you have to pay for. I got him a Kindle Fire and he loves it. The apps are free on this item. I would not recommend purchasing a nook.

Good product

Frank Joseph Salemi, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this as a second one for my mom. The only drawback is I am not getting the upgrade I got with my original Nook Color I guess since they do not make this product any longer. If anyone knows how I could get the upgrade, that would be great as it has a few nicer features.

Wasn't impressed

Jasper "horseybaby06", Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: I was super disappointed in the Nook color. I decided to go with this over the Kindle because it was cheaper, & I can see why now. The Nook runs EXTREMELY slow, & the frame itself is super sensitive.

  • Summary: This was a gift for Mother's Day for my mom with macular degeneration with blindness in one eye and decreased in the other. She was an avid reader and this color reader will read aloud the book and the fonts were increased in size so that she is able to see it and the pictures are vivid in color so...

Barns & Noble Nook

Larry P., Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Maybe a 9" unit would be better for my wife
  • Pros: Worked great for me. I ordered this for my wife, but she did not like it- No problem with the nook just too hard for her to read at her age. Asked for refund & they promised it.
  • Cons: Writing a little small for old eyes
