Summary: It is my own fault for not being more careful when buying this. Had I done more research into the different Nook Tablets, I would have discovered that the one I bought was an early generation OS and the software has been improved on the newer versions. It is an excellent reader and has, with the SD card, more storage than I'll ever use.....
Summary: The product works as expected, but the item that was advertised was a 16gb Tablet. I was told, after ordering and paying for the item, that a mistake was made and the advertised price was for an 8gb tablet. I was credited only $10 and received an 8gb tablet. This was an error on Amazon's part that they would not honor.
Summary: The original reason I purchased this device was to use it for my textbooks. But to my displeasure, Barnes & Noble doesn't allow for any of their tablets to read text books from NOOKStudy (their ebook reading program). It has been a rather irritating discovery because they hide that fact in the fine print. I feel that anyone who is thinking of purchasing this product should know this fact up front. If the user does not intend to use it for that reason, great.
Summary: I've had this product since christmas. It took awhile to decide between this and the kindle fire and frankly i wish i had paid more attention to the reviews. i use this primarily to read, borrowing books from the library, and it is a pain to have to download books to my computer and transfer them to the nook via usb. i bought a tablet so i wouldn't have to use a full computer as much, but here i am still tethered to it.
Summary: I bought a Nook Tablet based on the principle that it was much more than an eReader and was backed by an upstanding company in Barnes & Noble. At the price point the hardware is truly magnificent with a wonderful screen, fast processor, good storage capacity and an SD card. I didn't need the GPS and cameras that are 'missing'. The 7" form factor turned out to be ideal for my purposes.
