    Work well for downloading books, offers WIFI access for email, web browsing, shopping online and Pandora. A few games come with the device. However, would be much more fun to utilize the Android OS for further WIFI access to YouTube other games, etc.

    I had a Nook, got damaged. So when I replace it, I went with an upgrade to Nook Color. The regular Nook was better out in the sunlight, but the color is back lit, so I can read in bed without a lamp. Really depends on what your needs are...I love both models

  • A pretty decent e-reader
    Verified Purchase

    It's a pretty good e-reader. No defects that I can find from previous issues. Appears all user data was wiped from it. As an e-reader, it's a little slow. It has issues keeping up with where you're at in PDFs which is primarily what I use it for (comics, magazines, etc) but that's not a killer since you can just jump to the page you were on. It does sadden me that for all the stuff it comes with it does not seem to support profiles... when I am done with it, my wife wants it. Neither of us is all that interested in updating the other's twitter feed or what not. My comics and magazines sit in the same magazines subfolder as hers, it can get crowded at times. The 1 gig of memory that ships with it disappears quickly if you're going to keep magazines on there. It's fine if you're going for books without a lot of pictures... I rarely see a book (even comic) break 10 meg (meaning you could have 100) while magazines seem to be ~100meg average (meaning you can have 10 on the device). I slapped a 16 gig SD card in (extremely easy as a note, the silver corner on the back is just held on with a magnet, flip it up (it does not come off) and slide in card)) and ran it for about an hour before the card died a horrible death (I suspected it was on its way out) replaced with an 8 gig I had in an old phone and have been using it that way since. The stripped down Android OS that's on there annoys me - it's like my phone in safe mode... but it's so they can funnel you into their app store where everything costs that is free on the google market. Considering rooting the device and installing cyanogenmod on it, but not really in the mood to do that at the moment... it works for what it is... and a faster OS on the reader is not going to really change my enjoyment. good reader all in all

  • A decent deal for a toy
    Verified Purchase

    If you aren't in a hurry to receive your Nook (mine took like 2 weeks to get to me) and you really need to save every dime - this is a pretty good option. As mentioned, mine seems to have a "dead spot" in the lower left hand corner. I REALLY did not want to go through a return process - (see the 2 weeks to receive product comment) and I found a couple of workarounds to it - so no big deal. This seems to be a pretty common thing in touchscreen devices. But, if you are buying this for a gift or for an older user - it might be an issue.

    The Nook Color is an excellent eBook reader. The graphic quality is very good which makes reading books and magazines a pleasurable experience. Barnes and Noble has updated the software and added new features. Since it is an Android based tablet, it can be used to run other versions of Android if you have the desire.

  • The Nook Color vs the original Nook
    Verified Purchase

    Owning a Nook I saw no reason to spring for the Nook Color but the price of the certified pre-owned unit at Overstock.com combined with the 32GB Android dual boot Micro SD at Amazon pushed me over the edge. If I had it to do over again...I would! The Nook Color is well beyond the "step upgrade" from the standard Nook. I would have been happy with that alone. Having the simple and complication free Android tablet makes a no brainer. If I had to purchase the Nook Color alone from Overstock.com it still would have been well worth it. If the opportunity arises once more-go for it!

  • Really like this tablet
    Verified Purchase

    I wasn't interested in this as an e-reader, but more of a cheap tablet "i-alternative" and it runs third party android mods perfectly and has incredible value

  • Great for my summer vacation reading....
    Verified Purchase

    I like the LIBRARY and APPS of my Nook color!!! I was hesitant at first to get this product but after reading the reviews, I thought it would be the best for my budget and what I want this summer.

  • Great product
    Verified Purchase

    The Nook Color I received was in perfect condition. If you search the Internet, you can learn how to turn it into a full Andriod tablet, which makes it the cheapest tablet on the market. Certainly underpowered when compared to an ipad 2 or a galaxy tab, but still a great deal for the price.

  • LOVE this purchase
    Verified Purchase

    I am so excited to have found this Nook Color. I have been wanting one and even with this being a refurbished product, you can't tell the difference from a new one. I purchased the Nook Color, a screen protector and a 2-year serivce contract and it was less than a new Nook Color from B & N. Great Purchase! Great Deal!

    Could not be happier with my Nook Color. Returned the Literati I had since last Nov. You can do so much more with the Nook Color than just read. Am having as much fun with the apps available as with reading. Like being able to download/borrow form my local library. Also like being able to swith the page for night-time reading. Heard a salesperson at Best Buys telling a customer that with Kindle they sell more light attachments for itthan any other accessory. Since I'm hi-tech challenged I also love being able to drive over to the nearest Barnes and Nobel with my Nook in hand for help. So far I have only needed to make 2 trips. On the down side the sale price was $$$ when I first looked on Overstock. The next day it was up to $$$ which is what I paid. Today the price is back to $$$.

    I purchased this as a gift for my husband to root and convert to an Android tablet. It arrived in great conditions. My husband was able to root it without issue and we now have a Android 2.3 tablet.
