Excerpt: The Nook Color is definitely an e-reader to consider. In my opinion, it isn’t the best on the market. However, it does have some features not seen on other e-readers. The main feature is the color touch screen display. This is actually not seen on any other e-reader. The Nook features an 800 MHz processor. It has an internal 8 GB of storage, which is expandable. However, I actually do not feel the need to expand the storage.
The Nook Color is a great value and a decent tablet!

Summary: The Nook Color is a sturdy feeling reader. It is a little heavier than other E-readers, but it doesn't feel cheaply made. The color LCD display can be a little difficult to see with the glare of sunlight or certain direct lighting. Another advantage is the ability to expand storage with a MicroSD card. You can even boot off the MicroSD card using a unrestricted version of the Android OS. The Nook Color is perfect a perfect companion for reading.
Summary: The Nook Tablet 8gb is a terrific way to read books and magazines while enjoying your favorite music. Transferring the songs over to the Nook from my laptop was fast and easy. For folks who want the "full" tablet experience, they sell the N2A card which enables you to boot your Nook into a full tablet mode, with access to Google Play, and the 400,000 apps available there.
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.
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.
Summary: I gave this as a gift. i received a call from the recipient today telling me that the unit did not work and that when they took it to Barnes and Noble to get help they were told it was some sort of recycled unit bought in bulk my Mexican companies to resell. This was a big disappointment to say the least. The BN employee even showed them markings on the packaging the indicated the Mexican connection.
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. Although the original software serves its purpose.
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. Like sometimes when I was reading a book and I touched a certain part of the outside the pages would just go nuts & start flipping themselves. And you can't use it while it's charging or else it will go into violent seizures.
