Beware third party sellers that sell damaged Nooks
5 February 2014
Summary: I purchased two Nooks 7" Wi-Fi (the older model not the HD) thru Amazon third party seller(buy accessories) This was done in November 2013 as a Xmas present to be given to my grandsons in Dec 2013. Both came in damaged. I put in a claim thru Amazon and "buy accessories" answered stating they would not deal with me and that their warranty is only 21 days.
Summary: Got this one for my mom for christmas..thought it would be like the 5other tablets i have but its not..u can not download anything for FREE that is worth having on there play we went to everything you could image and still dont let you..CANT EVEN DOWNLOAD CANDY CRUSH she spent about $10 ON things that siad candy crush and they were guides not the game .
Summary: not compatible with gaming on the internet like ( pogo.com, words with friends on FB ) only games that B&N carry. I was disappointed since the ad stayed that games could be played on the Nook, but did not state that a refurbished Nook would be delivered striped of the Java and Adobe Flash Player software. B&N does not deal with any refurbished Nooks.
Summary: Thought I was getting a good deal, but my Nook has more bugs than the U.S. embassy in Moscow. Customer service is limited to, "turn it off and back on." It never works like it's supposed to. For the love of God, buy a Kindle or an I-Pad.
Summary: If all you want is a tablet for reading B&N books and periodicals and maybe playing the occasional cheesy game, this is for you. Otherwise, pass. This is listed as an Android tablet but it's not. It's Android on the surface but it can't access Google Play and instead uses the B&N app store. This means paying for apps that are free elsewhere.
