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.
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...
Summary: I bought this product mainly for the use of the access to the internet. I really did not think that it would be much different than say...An Ipad. I was kind of wrong. For the price I paid, it was worth it, but I wish I would have gone one step up to the Nook HD.
Summary: Really like the nook. I had a membership through Barnes and Noble which was the decision for purchasing it and not the Kindle. It was in great shape and we use it a lot. Not as user friendly as I had hoped and was hoping to download photo's for art reference but dont think it's capable.
Summary: I bought this product to use mainly as an e-reader, but chose this one specifically because I could also use internet and apps like netflix when connected to Wifi. I like the small size and weight of the Nook because it can fit into a jacket pocket when I travel.
Cheaper alternative for parents looking for a tablet for younger children.

Summary: I purchased this for my son with the sole intent of rooting it with Cyanogen Mod 7. The first attempt didn't work right, but after some research, I did it correctly and it works like a charm. I purchased another nook for my daughter and, again, rooted it. No issues.
Great tablet for the money if you install real Android on it

Summary: I bought this as a cheap tablet, jailbroke it to use a dual-boot 32GB MicroSD, boots into either stock B&N Reader, or Cyanogen Android. As a tablet, it is great. Good form factor, very readable, full access to Android market, etc. A perfect device for travelling access to the net & apps.
Good tablet, good reader, a very capable device at a value price.

Summary: The NookColor is a very capable device. It supports flash so you can watch netflix and youtube as well as read books, magazines, newspapers and play games. The size of the device is perfect to carry with you anywhere although it is slightly heavier then many of the same size devices I've held...
