    My boyfriend bought me a nook for a trip we were going on and I could see he liked mine but was unsure about getting one himself due to the cost of a new one $199 +tax. So when i saw the refurbished nook I figured I would give it a try and get one for both him and my nephew. First, the nook came out of the box looking exactly like my brand new one. You could not tell at all that is was a refurbished one. Second, both nooks were working faster than mine when I tested to see if they worked. Turns out the refurbished ones were shipped with the newest software and I realized I had to update the software on my new one. I have never purchased a refurbished item before but I can definitely recommend this as far as the Nook. Great bargain..almost half the price of a new one and looks and works like a new one. P.S. both my boyfriend and my nephew love theirs.

    Once you read your first book you will be hooked. Barnes & noble books are easy, you can use 3G or wifi to buy & purchase; Free google books & library ebooks books require a PC and free adobe editions to transfer them via USB, so 3G/wireless is of no use for free books. It works with both EPUB & PDF books, the 2 main formats used by libraries, without any conversion. I bought 3 and all 3 were in like-new condition.

  • Great product -- but is it 3G?
    Verified Purchase

    I got the nook 3G + Wi-Fi from Overstock for less than $**** -- but I'm still not sure how to tell if it's 3G. It never picks up a signal for 3G, even though I should be within range of one. And keep in mind that even if you have a 3G nook, you can only use it to visit the B&N bookstore -- not for web browsing, etc. Other than that, it looks good, works great -- and if you want to do basic web browsing -- like reading news articles -- it's perfect ... JUST MAKE SURE TO VISIT THE MOBILE VERSION OF YOUR FAVORITE SITES! Stick with those and you'll be fine!

    Nook came in looking like new, no noticeable traits that showed it was previously owned. It had the latest software already loaded, but I did have to take it to the Barnes & Noble to re-install. Once they did that, at NO CHARGE, my Nook has been working like a breeze. LOVE IT! I can't put it down!

    Still working. Love the darn thing. A bit chunky compared to the newest nooks. I don't mind it being a bit bulky and liked being able to side load my own docs (PDFs).
