The Nook is easy to register and set up, the choices of text size and brightness are simple to control. The battery life is impressive, and perhaps most enjoyable is the ability to highlight a word and immediately get a definition from Webster's dictionary.
When the power goes out, I still have a default activity within appx. an 8 hour window.
For people who wish to sideload epub books from Project Gutenberg, this reader is a little jewel. I have over 1000 books in mine, and haven't cracked the surface of its memory, yet. I have not needed an optional SD card up to this point.
B&N has ceased production of the Nook Color, so I purchased a new one in the box from Amazon as a backup unit.
I encourage anyone who desires a fine quality e-reader to consider the Nook Color while they are still available.
If it didn't have a single other function, I would still be delighted with it as a reading device to augment my book library.
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!
It's not bad for checking email or reading on the net. However, It is slower than a dedicated tablet would be. I've used it to watch netflix and play some games, like angry birds and it works very well for that. The sound is not very loud with the built in speakers, but headphones fix that. I've had trouble playing Pandora, as in it lags more than it actually plays, but didn't buy it to be a music player. When reading, I turn the brightness down low and usually use the grey color background, and feel very little eye strain even reading all day. All the features are intuitive and easy to use. My favorite feature is the 'look up word.' Great for a new word, and fun to just refresh my memory with the detailed definition.
It's easy to buy books from B&N, (a little too easy if you ask me lol) but any other books you add, like public domain, list right along with B&N books in your library and on the desktop. (If you don't know about Calibre for organizing and formatting ebooks, check it out. Best program and it's free)
My only complaints are: It is pretty heavy. After a while you get used to it, but when I first got it, I had a little wrist strain until I figured out ways to balance it better. The other thing that annoys me is petty, but I read on my side and turn off the feature that automatically readjusts the layout (portrait or landscape) but every time I shift a little, this stupid 'lock' icon shows up in the corner. Not fun when you are trying to read the word that is under it. Anyway, it's just a little thing, and really my only true complaint. Overall, I love my Nook, and would highly recommend it.
