Doesn't get any better
I bought a generic tablet back before tablets were really popular. It was android 1.5 and no upgrades were really feasible. I used it and loved it. But finally decided to replace it. So I did lots of research and found that tablets are all over the charts these days from reasonably priced to extreme. I read the specs on this tablet and it was a story of sounding a little too good to be true. But I took a gamble based on the low price and I bought. I will say I couldn't be happier.
Lightweight, Fantastic screen
Is the Nook HD the best 7-inch tablet on the market? In short, no.
It's cheap and cheerful design and interface at a sub-£200 price tag would have blown us away a year ago, but such is the fast pace of the tablet market these days, the Nook has been left behind by superior competition.
Sharpest display on a 7-inch tablet is great for reading
Here's the deal folks. If reading is more of your forte than anything else, there's no question that the NOOK HD is the ideal tablet for you, especially when it has a healthy and robust ecosystem in that particular category. And with that snazzy looking display, it's sure to be swell for other things - like watching movies and surfing the web.
Lightweight, with good ergonomics
In terms of hardware alone, the Barnes & Noble Nook HD is an excellent tablet-ereader combo. It's lighter than the competition, and clever ergonomics make it the comfiest 7-inch tablet to hold one-handed. The screen is excellent too, with more pixels on show than any rival. Its issues are all in the software. The custom Barnes & Noble interface is easy to use, but it could be quicker.
Cheap 7 inch tablet with a stunning HD screen
We can hardly find fault with the hardware, but UK-specific content - including magazines, newspapers, books and apps - is sorely lacking. Much is promised, but you're taking a risk if you jump in and buy a Nook HD right now. As with the Kindle Fire HD, the Nook HD will be good option for anyone wanting something that's easy to use, and there's the bonus of user profiles as well.
I bought this item four days ago and I have had a day to use it. Basically I've been working with MS Windows for the past 15 years. I bought a Google Nexus 7 tablet two months ago, and I am wild for Android and tablets. But then I wanted a smaller device, so I bought the Elsse 4.3. Well initially I had a problem because I was comparing it with the N7. I had paid 4 times as much for it, not quite fair. The Elsse 4.3 worked fine right out of the box. The more I use it, the more I like it.
I've bought a few other tablets and sold them because i didn't like them. This tablet is different. you don't have to push on the screen at all, just swipe. it's fast and easy to manuver. i really love it! and if you are looking for a case for it, go for a nook hd+ case, it's almost an exact fit. just a little big on the side, maybe by an 1/4 an inch.
Great Tablet For The Price
First off...for people expecting an Ipad or Galaxy Tab...you're not going to get it for the price. What you will get is a nicely packaged mid-level tablet. It's light weight and smaller size make it great for carrying around. Despite the smaller 7" screen size, it has very good graphics for games, movies and books. The touch screen can be a little quirky in response, but it's functionality doesn't suffer in the least.
