Good e-reader, but locked down and low battery

Pros: It's color, works as a great e-reader, supports apps that connect to my local library for e-book checkout, ergonomic, and lightweight.

Cons: Not very fast, but I don't know if it's supposed to be. Low battery life (about 4-hours between charges). Locked down on B&N's system. The Nook HD has an open Android system, allowing you to use apps from the Google Play store. But then again, it's a color e-book reader, not a tablet computer.

Other Thoughts: This product falls in the middle of liquid ink readers and tablet devices. The unfortunate part of compromise is that no one gets what they want. You don't get the readability of eInk in direct (sun) light, ease on eye strain, and long battery life. You don't also get a great tablet device capable of much more.

If you are looking for a dedicated e-book reader, I suggest e-ink versions of the Nook or competitor device. Or save your money and get the better versions.

Barns & Noble Nook

Pros: Worked great for me. I ordered this for my wife, but she did not like it- No problem with the nook just too hard for her to read at her age. Asked for refund & they promised it.

Cons: Writing a little small for old eyes

Other Thoughts: Maybe a 9" unit would be better for my wife

bad refurbished nook

Pros: None

Cons: Much slower than my other Nook Color. Has screen artifacts and random stalls and stutters. Refurbished products are supposed to be as good as new, but this one is still defective.

Nice price for moderate use with CM7 mod

Pros: I am primarily using it to read ebooks and also to check the news, email and listen to podcasts while on the road. I am glad I don't have to take my laptop on short trips since this is much lighter.

You can install the CM7 mod on an external SD card (I recommend SANDISK branded CLASS 4) so you can dual boot and access the standard Nook ROM if necessary. I use a 32 GB card (which cost me about $20) and very rarely boot to the standard ROM.

Check the XDA developer forums if you need additional help with the mod.

Cons: It does not have GPS or built-in audio input. Without audio input, you cannot make phone calls through the net. It does not have a camera either (but that is a blessing for me since I visit buildings where devices with cameras are prohibited.)

Occasionally I get the 'force close/wait' screen when I first start up an application. If I click on wait, it is then fine. This happens very infrequently to be a nuisance (and it only happens with a couple of apps.) Also, near certain edges and corners, the taps can be a bit tricky. There are some free screen calibration programs which supposedly fix it. Again, this is not a major annoyance.

Other Thoughts: The Nook software is barely adequate and you need to install CM7 mod to get the full potential and access to the Android app stores from google or 'the river one' whose name shall not be spoken here. Installing the mod (aka rooting) is not difficult and google is your friend. The actual mod takes about ten minutes and reading up on it may take another 30 mins or more if you have never done it before.

Not a good Android device

Pros: The unit I received looked and acts like new. Good battery life as long as you're using it as a Nook (See cons below).

Cons: Yes you can root this thing and it's easy and cheap. But just because you can do something doesn't make it right. What they don't say is that if you install Ice Cream sandwich it's slow and the touch screen often becomes unresponsive. The battery isn't powerful enough to run a rooted android device so battery life is atrocious and the battery drains to the point where the unit won't work in just a few hours even while shut off for no apparent reason. You can overclock the unit but this makes the touch screen become even more unresponsive and the unit often freezes up and has to be rebooted to work. Video is problematic and although it played for a short time under android it froze and then after a reboot froze again. I'm not saying it's fun to learn how to root this device and it's interesting to play aound with it but it's really not powerful enough to make a decent android device.

Other Thoughts: As an e-book reader it's fine. Just don't expect miracles if you root this device.

Device was great, but Nook Software ......

Comments: First off this review is in 2 parts: 1) for the actual refurbished device purchased from Newegg, 2) the actual B&N Nook software

Device:
- Despite being labeled a refurb, it was in mint condition (looked like a new unit minus the refurb sticker), except the retail box which was kind of beat up on the outside but had the USB cable and AC adapter included

B&N Nook Software:
- Sucks period
- Couldn't get Cyanogen Mod 7 to dualboot off SD card to work but I can root and install CM7 onto the Nook. However, I couldnt get Google Play to work. Plus I didn't like the fact it does not fully replace the stock Nook ROM but kind of "layer" over it.
- Stock Nook Rom, useless for apps. You can't side load, and B&N apps store is terrible.

Overall: as a refurb device, its great given the price/screen/etc. But unless you know how to root, etc, it may not be worth the trouble.

BTW I went back to the stock ROM (which was a pain to get back to too).
