I recently bought the nook HD white for 129 greenbacks from BN. I had originally purchased a Kindle Fire HD. The Nook is lighter and the screen is brighter/sharper than the Kindle Fire. With the recent update to allow the full version of Google Play, a lot of the original limitations with the Nook have gone away. The chrome browser beats Silk all the way. You can actually download the Kindle App from the Google appstore and read all the books. However, you cannot install the amazon appstore and I had to buy some of the apps from Google play that I had originally purchased. There are no ads with the nook. Even with the Fathers day sale (which put the Kindle no-ad version at 195), this is cheaper by 65 bucks. An additional benefit is you can add an external SD card and there are options to boot a full blown standard Android Jellybean from the SD card with the nook from places like (AFN - android for nook for just 10 bucks).

The two main downsides are that it lacks a front facing camera, but I really have no use for that and the parental controls are not that easy to set as in the Kindle (you can create a child profile and make sure that the password has to be entered, but I have not fully figured it out).

I liked it so much that I bought a second nook in smoke color today.

I picked up the Nook HD yesterday from B&N, they still had plenty in stock at my local store. With the price drop they had down to $79 (might have been temporary for Black Friday weekend) I ran out of excuses not to buy it. I'm still using my old Nook color as an ereader and this price I couldn't resist getting a nice upgrade.

Here is what is great about this tablet, you get a decent stock operating system now that B&N allows access to the Google Play store and apps. Right out of the box, it is very nice already. But for tinkerers like myself, the best thing is to set it up with a custom Android ROM, there is a great one called Cyanogenmod 10.1 - this is basically a stock Android 4.2.2 set up to run on the Nook HD - gives you an interface and user experience much like what you get on the new model Nexus 7. I requires some computer skills and a 4GB or bigger microSD card, took me about 30 minutes to do.

There are plenty of tutorials/directions online, it is not terribly difficult for anyone who is even mildly computer savvy. The most important thing to do for the sake of being able to go back to stock - for warranty or any reason - is to use a recovery tool to first back up the stock B&N ROM before you flash the tablet with the custom ROM. The same recovery program that I used to flash the custom ROM has an option right in the menu to create a backup of the stock ROM right onto the microSD card, pretty easy.

While I decided to completely overwrite the stock B&N ROM, there is also an option to set up a microSD card with a custom ROM and you can then basically dual-boot and not even affect the stock B&N ROM. Take out the SD card and reboot the tablet and you are back to a totally stock Nook HD.

I had given my kids a Nook Color a couple years ago. Sold it last fall and got 1 girl a Kindle Fire 2nd gen, and the other a Lenovo A2107. The Lenovo was absolutely horrid so I wanted to replace it. This summer, when the Nook HD got Google Play, and the prices fell, I sold the Lenovo and got my daughter the Nook HD 16gb Snow. She absolutely loves it! I liked it so much, I got the Nook HD 8gb for myself. I like it much better than my Kindle Fire HD. The size is smaller, and thinner, and lighter, which are great things. And you can put whatever wallpaper you want on it, unlike the Fire HD.

I sold the 2nd gen Kindle Fire and gave the other daughter the Fire HD, but she has since switched to a Nook also (HD+). So now I have the Fire HD and the Nook HD for myself. I like the Nook HD better for the reasons stated above. Size and weight are so much smaller on the Nook HD. The screen resolution is also better. There is nothing I don't like about the Nook HD. I did put a GreatShield Glare Screen protector on the Nooks, to reduce the shiny glare. We use them without cases, just sleeves. They are phenomenal tablets.

If you or the person you are buying for loves to play games and will likely download hundreds of them, definitely get the 16gb Nook HD. You will want as much space for apps as you can afford, despite the SD card slot. Games have to be installed to internal memory, for the most part. The SD card slot comes in handy for books, movies, photos and music. I got the 8 gb Nook HD for myself, because I don't play games, the only apps I need are for reading, playing music, news, web, stuff like that. I put my files on the SD card and I am set!

I don't plan to buy the new Fires when they come out. They are far too limited, in my opinion.

I would recommend the Nook HD to anyone. I had a Nook Color for 3 years and didn't have a single problem with it until the battery charge indicator started to malfunction, which is when I purchased the HD. I'm glad I did, as it's lighter, faster, and has that beautiful HD screen.

As an e-reader, the text is crystal clear and pristine. As a tablet, it's quick, easy to navigate, and has a spectacular picture. I find it very user-friendly and intuitive to download books, read, and organize my book "shelves." I also appreciate being able to download books from Project Gutenberg and other free sites and the public library directly onto the Nook using the Wi-Fi feature instead of having to use a USB cord to plug into my computer. You can also rent or buy movies to watch on the spectacular HD screen.

I enjoyed the experience of going to a store and seeing the different Nooks that are offered and asking questions from the representatives there. I can't imagine purchasing an e-reader without touching it, feeling it, and testing it out before deciding which one I wanted. If you're debating between the Simple Touch and the HD, I would recommend the HD: you get a tablet for the price of an e-reader, you don't have to use your computer to "sideload" content from sites other than B&N, and you get a much crisper and more legible reading screen that you can read in the dark at night.

I don't think that I'll ever be without a Nook in the future. I thought that I was married to actual books, but the Nook really captures the book experience. It's like having an entire library at your disposal in the comfort of your own home. It's also amazing that you can carry a giant, epic 3-inch-thick piece of literature in a slim little e-reader. If you're hesitating on making this purchase, I say go for it. You won't be disappointed.
