R.I.P. So I called their Customer Support phone line.

I have been extremely happy with it -- reading from the Nook Color is a much better experience than I thought it would be.

If, however, you want an iPAD, but rather go for something cheaper, the Nook Color may be just the thing for you.

The NookColor meets my needs. I didn't want the size or weight of an iPad, and this promises to do everything that an iPad does... only more compactly. In fact, the only thing I'm waiting for in the NookColor is the upcoming upgrade that will handle Flash files.

My spouse has the newest Kindle, and is content with it, but I don't like the fact that the Kindle contrast is still low and is not backlit. I love the NookColor backlit screen, and like that I can read in bed without disturbing my spouse. I've adjusted the level of illumination to practically the lowest level, and find reading is very crisp, clear and a pleasure.

Although I haven't used my NookColor in bright sun, it's no problem reading in a well-lit room.

I also have the Kindle app and the Nook app on my iPod Touch. Again, since it's back-lit, I find it equally clear. I bought the NookColor because I was so happy with the Kindle/Nook apps on my iPod touch, but wanted a bigger screen.

Compared to the iPad, the NookColor is half the price and 2/3 the weight. This works for me, since I plan to travel with it.

Although I do most of my shopping through Amazon, I also like supporting the competition when it is worthy. The NookColor fits the bill!

I'm a die-hard book lover, and I swore I'd never read a book electronically, but I started to open to the idea on my last airline flight. I usually travel with a 2-inch stack of printed-out pdf files, 2 or 3 magazines, and a few books not to mention my reading light, highlighters, and sticky notes. It's too much trouble to lug it all around, and now we have to pay for overweight luggage, so having one small tablet loaded with books makes sense.

I've been looking at the iPad, but decided that it was too big, too expensive, and too fancy, plus I can't bear the thought of another monthly phone bill. I primarily need to have quick access to reference materials that I have on Word and .pdf files as well as books, and occasional web access. After a lot of research and playing with various devices, I decided that the Nook Color was the best product for me. I have been extremely happy with it -- reading from the Nook Color is a much better experience than I thought it would be.

I'm very pleased with how well my Word and pdf files transferred. Accessing and reading them from the Nook is easy -- I read them in landscape so I can make the print bigger. You cannot make changes to these files from the Nook, and you can't highlight or write notes as you can with a book, but when the apps come out I won't be surprised if someone makes a note-taking app like "stickies" for these files.

Reading on this is a pleasure. I thought it would be horrible, but in many ways it's actually easier than holding a book. I don't have to try to hold a large book with two hands and keep the page open at the same time. I can indeed curl up with it -- I rest it on my legs and don't have to hold it at all. If I'm working at a table, I can put it on a stand or leave it flat.

I had the original Nook, had a friend's Kindle for a couple weeks, and now have the Nook Color. Although it's a bit weird to be writing a review of it on Amazon, I felt that potential Kindle purchasers should understand their options.

The Nook Color is, by far, the best eReader I've used (including the iPad). It's not perfect, but it almost is. The LCD screen is very easy to read, which surprised me since I was a big fan of e-ink and did not like long-term reading on the iPad. The lack of need for a night light is great, and the software it ships with is lightning fast and almost bug-free. Really, there is no lag when I'm using it and the functionality (once you spend 3 minutes learning it) is near-perfect.

BN is quickly catching up to Amazon on content...frankly don't notice a difference anymore. Plus, you can side-load eBooks from Google and elsewhere.

I know this...I will never go back to e-ink again and love this screen.

I also LOVE the delivery of magazines on this thing. Really, it's better than the real magazine. You get full color reproduction of text and pics, and it gives you an Article View if you just want to read the article. It is a great way to get magazines and will be better as they get more publishers (right now, it's a decent list but it could be better).

I also really like the multimedia support...I can load photos and pics on an Micro SD card and take my music with me. If I'm in a wifi area, I get full Pandora support! I wish it had 3G, but this is still great.

Having said that, the Color is not perfect. First off, the weight, while acceptable, is SLIGHTLY too much.

i bought this immediately after returning the pandigital novel. this far exceeds my expectations! the screen is bright and clear. I love that the wifi works even though i am far from my router. i was able to read in my car during the day without issue. buying books are so easy and quick and i love that i am able to change the wallpaper to show a picture of my son! this is absolutely one of the best electronics i have ever bought. i wanted to buy the kindle but really love the Nook Color's bright screen and i'm happy that i bought the Nook Color.
