My son asked for a Nook reader for Christmas, and after seeing prices of $250 and over, I looked on Overstock and found this. While I haven't tried it out myself, the refurbished Nook arrived in a Barnes and Noble box, it looks good, and hopefully, when my son goes to use it, it will work fine.
I love my Nook so much that I have since recommended it to several friends and bought another to give as a gift! I'm not much of a "gadget girl" but have found this to be very easy to use. The download process is easy and navigating from book to book or screen to screen is just as simple. I especially like that you can access the dictionary feature without leaving the page you are currently reading.
I have had my Nook for about 3weeks , I think its great and very easy to use. My favorite thing about the Nook is the screen i was thinking that the screen was going to be like a computer screen but it is absolutely not it is a very comfortable read (if that makes sense lol ) the only reason I didnt give this product a 5 is because this Nook needs Wi-FI to do anything like buying a book or even downloading the book to your devicewhich kinda sucks because if you arent in an area with Wi-fi you cant put new data on your device. But overall a pretty good buy.
Although the product works just fine, I'm a bit upset at the .pdf support on this device. As an engineering student, a lot of the pdfs I read use greek symbols and math notation which is horribly rendered on the nook. Simply put, it can't even display a simple fraction bar. It also has trouble with long numbered lists, preferring to have a subpage with all the numbers, then a subpage with all the things in the list as opposed to pairing the number 1 with the 1st thing on the list. However, it works lovely for actual ebooks as should be expected
over stock sucks they can't find my oder even though ihave copied and pasted the order number from the odrer sheet. it has been seting in conneticut since the 29 th and is still setting there today. I will not recomaned them to anyone else ever again.
