It's nice

Krystal Matias, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a gift for a librarian friend, but I did give it a go around before I gave it away to see how it worked. I can't judge it too harshly because it is an older version, but it worked well for it's intended use.

You are leasing books, limited sharing, AWFUL power cord quality.

  • Summary: GOOD: fairly intuitive use, wireless is quick, removable drive allows big-file extras to be added (movies, etc). Visual image is good, great for 'toss-away reading', although a VERY limited number of newspaper subscriptions available for a national device. Decent magazine availability. BAD: Awful, awful, awful power cord w/$25 replacement cost (read B&N site, 305 complaints, some resolved; others not).

Trying to be Jack of all trades

Windy City Guy, Amazon
26 December 2010
  • Summary: I really liked the look and feel of Nook Color but I decided to return it after one week. The unit is very nicely built with all the features I wanted in a tablet (yes, I called it a tablet). I bought it to read my large volume of scanned technical PDF documents and to surf the net and check my emails without lugging around my laptop. It has a very clear and crisp display and a highly sensitive touch sensor. I really liked it and hoped to keep it.

Good for casual reading. Not better than a Kindle as a true ereader device

Jose, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought mine days ago and returned just today. It is an ok device but does not truly shine as an ereader and I will expand on it shortly. 1st, this is more a hybrid device than an ereader. An ereader basically is for reading documents in an electronic format. Examples of good ereaders: Kindle (of course), Nook 1st generation and Sony. Nook Color, besides allowing you to read, let you browse internet, listen music, play some games and much more tablet oriented stuff.

  • Excerpt: Результат: четыре нука за 2 недели и ни одного без дефекта. Главная проблема - корпус. Он даже на вид не производит впечатление качественного. Засада ещё и в том, что люфт и скрип появляются не сразу. В общем, будьте внимательны при покупке, а лучше остановите свой выбор не чём то другом. Я понял, что планшет из нука никакой. Для чтения электронных книг у меня есть Киндл 3. Очень качественный девайс. Никакого намёка не китайскую сборку.
  • Pros: Экран, батарея , бла-бла-бла, и т.д и т.п, про достоинства уже не раз говорили. Скажу лучше про недостатки.
  • Cons: Мне так и не удалось приобрести этот девайс. Главная проблема - корпус. Первый купленный мной нук скрипел корпусом внизу слева, возле той приблуды. Обменял на другой. Стало ещё хуже. Этот экземпляр имел ужасную засветку внизу экрана и два битых пикселя. Вернул, забрал деньги. Заказал в другом магазине. И снова скрип, но уже возле кнопки включения/выключения. Обменял на другой. Вроде бы дефектов нет. Но через день заметил небольшой люфт внизу корпуса, а ещё через день ...
