Good tablet


Use it for an ereader mostly with light browsing. Serves the purpose. Well made and does everything I was expecting. Even download children's books and kids enjoy using it.

Good all around e-reader


Great all around product. Do not think you are getting an ipad. If you want a very functional ereader that can do so much more, it is great.This product is... Variety of apps availableAbout me... Parent with kids

price and good variety of apps for what it is

cord can break

Excellent ereader +


Great device for reading but limited apps. Because there are numerous free FB2 type books easily available on Internet which are easily converted to EPUB format (used by Nook) I find a lot of free content without going to B&N. This is especially true...

Easy of use

limited apps, not enough internal memory for apps and content outside o B&N

so much easier than using a paperback


I just love this nook. I had a pandigital and when the off/on switch broke I got my nook. Only draw back is that the manual is not included very hard to read it onthe nook while learning how to operate itThis product is... responsive touch screen,...

very convenient

This machine is simply awful!

Not so much

Lack of choice of books compared to Amazon

Decent e-reader; poor tablet; worst tech support


The two most important things to me when it comes to an e-reader is book selection and battery life. The Nook Tablet integrates nicely with the B&N web shopping experience, making it very easy to search, preview and purchase e-books directly from the...

E-book selection and purchasing

Very short battery life; poor customer and warranty support

Travel a lot, so need reading material. My Sony PRS 600 Touch was getting a bit long in the tooth, so needed a new reader. Prefer laptops for serious work and already had Samsung Tab.Sony did not have a wow reader, did not like Kindle (does not allow...

Love the Nook with no Real Problems


I bought two of these for Christmas last year (one for me and one other family member). I'm about to buy a third for my daughter who is heading off to college. She is also getting a new MacBook but the Nook Tablet is perfect to carry around for reading...

Watching Movies

Difficult pushing 'buttons' on websites not optimized for tablets

Was good, but now?????


I got this for Christmas this past year. I have played with this and read on it for the entire 6 months i have had this (at least once a day). I had it on yesterday around 3:00pm, i put it in my bag (always) and I also have a OtterBox for it, so it is...

I love the HD screen, large screen, easy set up

wifi kinda slow, now freezes up, have to pay a fortune for apps that are usually free for others
