  • A fine e-reader with so many capabilities.
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased the Nook Color fully intending to "root" it and use it as an Android tablet computer. (Do a Google search to learn more about this.) I wanted a small tablet with basic capabilities such as email, web browsing and a few other things. To my surprise, the Nook Color now comes with these apps built-in and more apps may be added through B&N. After tinkering with the rooting process (it worked well) I decided that the stock Nook was enough for me. I added a few apps, loaded it with hundreds of photos and songs, and now enjoy my small tablet without all of the concerns and hassles of using a "hacked" device. B&N did the right thing in making this reader more than just a reader. I'm certain that hundreds more apps will be offered in the near future, making this reader even more useful. As for being a refurbished item, have no fear. It arrived in perfect like-new condition. It is indiscernible from a new item. NOTE: Overstock claims that this item comes with 8GB. It only has 5GB (as is the case with all newer Nook Color's) and of that only 1GB is available for media. Not a big deal. I added an 8GB micro-sd card and now have plenty of capacity. P.S. I've purchased a few books and very much enjoy the e-reading experience. No eye strain at all. Though if you're only interested in reading on the device, their basic Nook is a better choice because of the e-ink screen. Before buying any reader, definitely go to a store and play with all of them.

  • Nook Color Rocks
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered a Nook Color for my husband and had so much fun with it myself that I ordered a second one for me. Recently I also purchased a 10 inch HP Touchpad but like the Nook Color almost more just because it is so versatile and easy to use. The Nook Color has new software 1.3 recently released by Barnes and Noble which improve its functionality even more. If someone is a novice tablet user, the Nook Color is simple to operate and offers the Barnes and Noble product store as well as access to email, apps and the internet right out of the box. It is a good choice for people who want something easy to operate. Because I love to experiment, I loaded a root and overclock onto our two Nook Colors and now have a full android tablet while at the same keeping the Barnes and Noble software intact. It's the best of both worlds. The email reader is configured so that it is easy to read and delete emails. The web browser is responsive, and the apps offer lots of choices including Angry Birds. I highly recommend the Nook Color, and Overstock.com has the best prices!

  • pretty good value for a sub 150$ tablet
    Verified Purchase

    the Nook Color is one of the most widely supported tablets amongst the hacking community for rooting because it was the first good tablet for under $200 so alot of developers bought them last year. its still popular because it works well. simple procedure lets you gain root and install full google market along with the ability to sideload Amazon app store. you can;t brick it because it boots from micro SDHC card first, spec wise, screen is a great 1024x600 7 inch with mulit touch. 1 ghz single core processor is a little laggy but more than adequate for watching movies and playing games it has 5 GB internal storage for apps and you can easily add a 32 gb SDHC card for media files. it;s base OS is 1.41 is 2.2 Froyo so it supports flash in the browser. you can load CynogenMod ROM if you want. i bought a new one last year and just bought a refurb for ***$ from Overstock. works perfectly.

  • Great device / Great Service from Overstock.com !
    Verified Purchase

    Do not hesitate to order a refurbished Nook Color. It ships directly from the manufacturer, in their packaging. Shipping was fast. Plus, it offers the same 1 year manufacturer's warranty as a brand new unit. My first unit worked flawlessly- it only had a couple of dead pixels, which is warranty covered. When I called Overstock.com's customer department, they were very friendly and helpful. They offered for me to either get a refund, or I could exchange it (free shipping both ways). You also get free and personalized support for tech & warranty issues at any B&N store. Plus, you get free wifi and can read ANY nook book for up to one hour in their stores! Overall, I really enjoy the versatility of the Nook Color. Navigation is very intuitive. It works great as an e-reader. I was initially concerned about eye strain from staring at a back-lit LCD vs. an e-ink reader, but this really is not an issue; there are a number of options for changing brightness, font, and screen color/shading. I would imagine there would be glare from sunlight, but I don’t plan on reading much outside in direct sun. It’s also great for magazines and kids’ books- the resolution is sharp and beautiful. I find the 7” screen size to be perfect for holding in one hand and yet large enough to easily read from. We have 50+ free books, and between downloading free books from B&N (they offer a selected free book each Friday) and checking out public library books- we’ve never been out of reading material. We have yet to spend a cent on books! The Nook Color is very versatile; you can take a break from reading with your own music, photos, and videos (you can download your own dvds). You can surf the web- check your email, YouTube, and face book. There are plenty of Apps available from the B&N site, including Angry Birds, Netflix, Pandora, and other popular choices- a good number of these are free. Regarding rooting, even before adding a CM7 micro SD card, the base Nook Color has a ton of functionality. After you add the CM7 micro SD, you open up the device to the Android Market to get even more Apps and Games- most of these are even FREE! Because you are rooting through the micro SD card, and not actually flashing the internal OS, your unit is never altered and therefore your manufacturer’s warranty remains intact. You can easily find instructions from a web search. Tip: if your unit is not version 1.4.1 yet, I would recommend NOT updating it until after you have loaded the rooted micro SD card- it will make the process much easier. Regarding screen protectors, I recommend getting one to protect it from scratches. I found that even after cleaning the screen, bubbles would still appear from dust falling inside during the application process. I have a fool-proof way of getting around this; before applying, roll a strip of transparent tape over the screen and protector. If you still find bubbles, just remove the protector and clean again with the clear tape. I can't even tell the screen protector is there now! I originally bought the Nook Color for my wife, but I think I’ve enjoyed it even more!

  • Great Buy at Overstock. Grab it!
    Verified Purchase

    Hi, Im from India and purchased Nook Color from Overstock recently. All the Indians visiting Overstock and planning to order something, do it carefree. No hassles. Overstock ships the product with the best quality described. Nook Color was, though preowned, as good as new. And I really mean it. Im totally satisfied with the battery life of this tablet. I havent rooted it and dont plan to do so in near future. Of the 8GB mentioned, only 1 GB is available for user content, rest being locked by BnN for books, magazines purchased from them. The TRANSCEND CLASS 6 8GB microsd card works best with this tablet. Sandisk tends to slow down the video/reading operations. This tablet is worth every penny and Overstock transaction is best in the business - especially for INDIA since online shopping at local resellers is messy here. SO, overall, totally recomemded for people who love reading and want more than an eink reader. BTW, watching movies is a treat on Nook Color. Search for PSP movie torrents. they work for NookColor as well. Pros - Best display (1024*600) <ipad has 1024*768> not much difference. Standby battery saving is great. Battery gives good backup. very sturdy in hands and definitely not heavy. You can carry it along very easily for long hours of reading PSP format movies can be watched. EMAIL/Pandora Cons - No Cons. Everything is perfect for the quoted price. One thing though - Nook Color should come in 10inch variant. That would make it a ipad competitor.

  • Love Nook Color!
    Verified Purchase

    The Nook Color from Overstock was in like-new condition. This is more like a tablet than an e-reader. It was easily rooted into a full android tablet even though it is highly functional without rooting. If someone is not good with technology but wants the e-reader feature and the convenience of tablet features, the Nook Color is perfect. I do also own a 10 inch tablet but find myself taking my Nook Color more often because it is light and portable. It is easy to switch from reading books and magazines to surfing the internet, using Facebook to connect socially and reading email. I love the Nook Color.

  • Nook Color Certified Pre-Owned
    Verified Purchase

    I received my Nook Color in less than a week after ordering. Although it is pre-owned, you cannot tell, it is just like new and came in the original packaging. I have had it now for about 3 weeks and I love it! I just returned from a trip and I used it every day for reading, checking e-mail and playing games. It is great for this. Ideal for taking on a long airplane flight. Not too big or heavy and fun to have. Only complaint would be the short battery life, about 8 hours if you turn off the wi-fi. Overstock had a great price for the Nook Color. I would highly recommend it!

  • Nook Color -> Android Tablet
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased the Nook Color because of the "tablet" - like features. It could be used to browse the web and email, as well as read books and color publications. But it also could be "rooted" to make it a full-fledged tablet! I purchased a micro SD card for it that did the rooting without my having to program it, just by putting it in the SD slot. A recent upgrade from Barnes and Noble increased its capabilities even more. I am very pleased.

  • Not quite awesome, but close
    Verified Purchase

    The Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor ereader device is so much more than just a reader... it has a wonderful, colour touch-screen experience, which allows for real-feel page-turning and the "pinch" action zoom feature similar to that of an Apple iPad. It's easy to set up and downloads via WiFi are super fast. B&N also offers a NOOK apps store, where you can browse and find both free and low-cost applications to enhance your device, such as social networking clients, utilities, email and office applications and games. The built-in email application is occasionally buggy, but that may be dependent on your email provider. The NOOKcolor is seriously lacking one very important feature, however -- the previous file format used by the Barns & Noble www.ereader.com site is not compatible with this device. The old website does offer a free Android-based application (the NOOKcolor is an Android device), but because the NOOK apps are proprietary to the device, the Android-based application cannot be loaded. Nor does the NOOK recognize apps from the Android Marketplace. Only NOOK apps from the Barnes & Noble app site will load to this device. If in the future, the B&N people decide to remedy this oversight, it would go a long ways to making this a truly awesome ereader/tablet computer that would be worthy as an iPad alternative.

    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.

  • Good tablet preview device
    Verified Purchase

    I've been looking at tablets lately and wanted to play with them. I tried the ipad 1 and 2 but was unhappy with their performance. I was eyeing the Asus Transformer but it was rarely in stock. Then I got wind of the Nook Color, and since I am a regular visitor of XDA-Dev, I saw the support it had from the Developers. I was able to get the Nook Color for $$$ shipped from Overstock.com. I have so far been pleased with the performance and build quality of this device. If you are in any technologically inclined and can follow steps, the nook color is an exceptional tablet. The screen is brilliant by the way.

  • Great book reader
    Verified Purchase

    This Nook Color came with the latest firmware update that was released a few months ago. It has allowed it to be a little more than just an e book reader. I can also look at web pages. Read Email, install apps. It is still best at being an e book reader. Being able to buy books, newspaper, magazines from the xxxxxxxx book store. Surfing the internet is a slow experience using the Nook Color. Web pages take a long time to load. The screen is some times way to small to touch the exact place that links to another web page. The xxxxxxx app store so far has relatively few apps available. I'm sure that more are on the way. There are other online stores that sell android apps, but nun are available to the Nook Color. Over all I like the Nook Color. It gives a lot for your dollar. 7” color touch screen. Access to lots of great books, newspapers, and Magazines and a few apps.

  • Great deal
    Verified Purchase

    This is one of those devices that you never knew you needed until you got one....and then discovered that you can't live without it. My Nook Color arrived with the manufacturer's packaging and literature, and there was no evidence that this was a refurb. This is much more than an ebook reader; this has the potential to be a tablet PC if you have the time and patience. Even if you don't, there are enough Android apps available for the Nook to make it a fun device for the entire family. Just add it to your wireless network, and you will be taking it with you in every room of your home. I use it in the kitchen -- follow recipes that I look up on the web while listening to Pandora radio. I've hooked this up to external speakers and excellent sound quality filled the house. I fall asleep with my Nook at night, and check the weather before I get out of bed in the morning. I've taken my Nook on trips instead of books and a laptop and was able to read whatever I wanted as well as receive and send email, find driving directions, and look up entertainment venues on the web wherever I could find a WiFi connection. I like my smartphone, but I love my Nook.

    I really love my nook color. It shipped in timely fashion, and was packaged just like new. I would not hesitate recommending to anyone to purchase the certified pre-owned nook color. I have not had any issues with the unit. The money you save is well worth it.

    I have told everyone that would listen about the Nook Color. I love it! I was just on vacation and took it with me on my cruise. No flipping pages in the wind, no loosing my place in a book, need a break from reading a book I just switch over and look at a magazine! I had over 30 books new to choose from, over 5 new magazines to read & apps galore! Who is NOT addicted to ANGRY BIRD?!?!?! I told my husband to get his own Nook Color so I could have mine back. You gotta buy one for yourself!

  • Cool gadgetl
    Verified Purchase

    Wasn't sure if I was going to like it as when I went to B&N no one could assist me in telling me or showing me the product. Overstock offered a really great deal so I thought I'd try it out. Internet is slow and it's cool that you can see you email on it, very limited apps. Apparently you can hack it/route it and get more out of the android features but I have a itouch so I don't need to do that. I like it and it's great for reading.

  • Nice tablet

    Right out of the box, this tablet is great. It comes with a browser and several handy apps. Not just for e-reading. As far as the "refurb" status, mine arrived in new-to-me condition. I couldn't see any flaws, and it works perfectly.
