Just right for me

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.

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: Love my little nook HD. i bought this because i wanted a cheap tablet option to download learning games for my toddler. she loves it and i love having it to read books on when she's not playing on it. great price, got here fast. my only complaint is the battery life is not the greatest.
Summary: Although this Nook was a refurbished unit, one would never guess it. It performs as a new and unused device. It has everything loaded in it and was fairly easy to set up. B&N store folks are willing and able to help if need be.
Summary: I bought this refurb for under $100 and so glad I did! I tried the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (expensive and glitchy), the Lenvovo Idea Tab (poor performance) before I settled on the Nook. After using tablets at both high and low-end price points I figured I had nothing to lose--and was pleasantly surprised by the Nook's capabilities! On the Nook I can read BN or Kindle books, play Scrabble from the Android store, and watch Netflix.
Summary: Great size, great interface. If you are a power user on the web it can be slow with sites with heavy graphic content, but for reading and the most common web uses it's great. Love it. I am reading constantly now, and I really like to ability to highlight and annotate. Also works flawlessly as a kindle if you download the android app, so you can access both bookstores. Love it.
Summary: Had some initial problems, sound output was so low that I could not hear it. Tech support said to de-register it and reboot. That cured that problem. Then WIFI would disconnect without any apparent cause. Called tech support 3 times, they were helpful and courteous, but we could not solve that problem. Finally tech support asked me if I had inserted a miniSD card, I had. They told me to check to see if that it was corrupted, it was.
