Summary: I bought this tablet to use mainly as an e-reader because I thought of the portability. I think the 7" screen is too small for me. I wish it was 8 or 9 inches. However in the overall the Nook Tablet seems nice. I am still exploring all its features. I find there is a total lack of instruction of how to use them. For example photo transfer from phone to Nook or from Mac to Nook. There are 2 places were to allocated photos: Gallery and Photos.
Summary: I wife was wanting eBook reader and out of all the different tablets she decided on the Nook! Which in its self if a great piece of hardware very durable! However I'm just waiting for her to get tired of the propriety Nook UI, it took my about 30 seconds to discover the CRAP B&N setup up on this device!!! So when she get fed up with it, I will root it and install a full copy of Android OS on it. May even go for broke and drop Kit Kat on it!!!
Summary: I love the nook! When I read the description and looked at the pictures I thought I was getting a green nook tablet cover. I did not. A touch misleading, however I do love my nook. I've already bought and read 3 books and watch netflix all the time. I do wish the volume was louder.
Summary: The Nook came as advertised. It dose what they say it will do. However, I am disappointed in the way Nook manages the table of contents in books. I bought it to put my scriptures and other religious material on it. If you want to look something up in the New or Old Testament it is very awkward to go table of contents and get to the book and chapter you are looking for in a timely manner.
Summary: the kids like the nooks, the construction is sound, and it is fast enough with a very good screen. I'm glad barnes and noble granted access to google play store, HOWEVER, i do wish i could go to Amazon App Store also this is why 3 instead of four stars...... setup was easy enough but not as easy as apple. Eventually i'll get a couple of ROOT MY NOOKHD sd cards and then we will have 4.5-5 star tablets. just a little too controlled,...
A nice reader, but don't expect tablet capabilities

Summary: Honestly, I was really just interested in getting an ebook reader, so you won't hear me whining (much) about how the Nook's functionality was crippled by B&N. What tipped the scales towards the Nook (instead of the Kindle, which was the other main contender for my money), was its compatibility with the epub file format.
Summary: This is a great eReader. I love reading books with the backlight. I find the tablet processor to be extremely slow so that is disappointing. I guess for $175, it's pretty good. Plus, there are few apps and those they do have are not free. So, if you buy this product, use it primarily as an eReader and buy yourself a quality tablet to surf the web...
