Just right for me
23 March 2015
Summary: I really enjoy my Nook, and it does most things without any problems. The only issue I seem to have is getting it to sync up with my email. Otherwise, I am very satisfied. It is an excellent e-reader, it's great for surfing around the web, and it has a decent little speaker on it to listen to music. I would recommend it to anyone shopping around for a light-duty entertainment tablet.
I bought 2 of them and they both have poor sound quality

Summary: I have mixed reviews for this. I bought 2 of them and they both have poor sound quality, and at times can be a bit glitchy. They are wonderful for just reading or maybe watching netflix from time to time. but if you are looking for a fully functional tablet i would look else where. this is good for a intor tablet, or for a child or senior but nothing more than that.
I like everything except when I try to move the app ...

Summary: I like everything except when I try to move the app icons around. The icons on the homepage won't move to another page that easily, even when I try dragging and holding it to the edge or side for 5 seconds or more. The stupid icon just won't move to the next page sometimes. Uggh. Also, when I swipe from homepage of apps to the next page of apps, instead of it swiping to the next page gracefully, the icons shift or move around instead when my fingers touch it.
Summary: When it works, the tablet is fine. Screen looks nice and it reads books like any other tablet. But I have had no end of trouble with it. We have had a Nook HD and a Nook HD+ and both have had charging problems. The charging cords fail regularly (I'm talking five cords in the last eight months) and even the devices have their own troubles. I would highly recommend that you get a Kindle instead. Never had a problem when I had a Kindle.
Summary: I bought two of them for my 5 and 6 year olds. They love them but thry also dont know any better. The app market sucks as do any "free" apps/books. They both have apps they love andim gladi didnt get a kiddie tab. Some apps just terminate for no reason. I love how STURDY it is. The drop them and they still work fine.
Summary: Do not buy this tablet. Aside from the nice bright display move on unless your strictly reading. The first time your charger cable goes it will cost to much to want to buy another one for this tablet. Oh, my tab has decided it no longer wants to charge. Its a brick on my mantel right now. I'm sure if I researched more I would not have chosen this. My mistake.
Summary: The product arrived quickly. It's in good condition and works great so far. What I was upset about was the charger and cord. It was not compatible to the Nook color. I don't understand how this was not known. Somehow my Nook battery had a full charge when I got it but when time came for me to charge it, the charger and cord did not charge it. Is this not something that is checked prior to sending.
Summary: I like this Nook. I read from it every night. I was not planning to have the online features, email and all of that, but it is nice to have. I like it because it is lit up and I can read without bothering my wife and the battery stays charged pretty long. Yeah, it is more expensive than buying books from the 2nd hand store, but you can find whatever you want. The books are generally priced well also.
