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: 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 she can appreciate the illustrations and pictures sent(those also may be enlarged).
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. The browser can be very slow and choppy and videos do not come in very clear. I also feel obligated to say that Hulu does not work unless you are going to set up a Hulu Plus account.
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. Dont care for the magazine selection either and hope the books I purchased for $20 are MINE and not lended as the library states.
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. The reading function of the Nook works great, I like that no ambient light is needed for reading.
Excerpt: I like this one. The screen is fancy, and kids love it. The weight and size is also good for use. It's not the same style as Nook wifi or Kindle. Nook and Kindle are most like a real book, and Nook Color seems like a tablet pc. You can do many things on it, not only for reading. The touch feel is not good as Ipad...Of course, it's only half (or even cheaper) the price of Ipad. I think for a $249 eReader, the Nook Color is good enough.
Excerpt: I'm LOVING my NookColor. I never took the time to read but if a book was around I'd pick it up. With the NookColor a book is always around and as easy as 123. Tons of free books and beyond plenty of paid books... so far I've not even had to buy any books and have been happy with the free. I love putting on the Pandora APP and opening up my book and reading...
Excerpt: Adroid based Barnes and Noble Nook color is about half the price of and iPad. For game wise, I'm sure it'll catch up soon given that Adroid is open source. I don't play much games, but I am picky about image quality. Resolution of nook LCD is comparable with iPad in terms of image being clear and contrasty. One thing i don't like about e-ink is that images dissolves and transit in a weird way when you browse the web.
