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.
I really like the built in Merriam-Webster dictionary, you can highlight any word in the text and it looks up the word quickly - and the definitions are very helpful; very succinct, not overly complicated. You also have the choice of looking up the word in Google or Wikipedia. This option opens up the definition in the built-in web browser.
Speaking of the built-in web browser, it works well as a basic browser, but it certainly doesn't have the speed and other capabilities of my Android tablet native browser or of Chrome Beta.
There is not much customization of this Nook - you can choose your own wallpaper, but that is about it for customization. But for what it was intended for, this is a good e-reader.
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.
