Pros An excellent e-reader, with lots of storage, a snappy interface, and good native store selection. Wi-fi is all you really need for wireless, and it works well. Code optimization has resulted in excellent page turning rates, including a rapid advance optio
Cons 1) B&N continues to insist that you do all organization using the e-paper screen. Where other readers (Sony) can automatically create collections from metadata, the nook demands that you organize shelves one book at a time. This is a large pain, and e
Summary A good basic reader, it neglects to fix some of the issues with e-readers in general and is inferior to other companies' offerings in others, so I can only give it 4 stars. Nonetheless, unless you specifically need some of the features it is missing, it is the best currently available.

Pros Lightweight and touch screen!
Cons No audio out. Not really a Con for me because I cannot and don't want to read and listen at the same time. I prefer to have my Ipod for my music library anyway.
Summary I rather carry this Barnes & Noble Nook Touch Reader than a stack of books on any trips.
Pros Pared down to the essentials, light, easy to use.
Cons Does not display PDFs correctly.
Creates weird file names for PDFs, making them hard to look up.
Limited storage due to partioning, using an SDHC card becomes a must.
Summary Bottom line:Would not buy again. Returned unit.
If you are just reading ePubs from B&N, this device will work.
If you want to use it for reading PDFs, stick to a laptop or netbook.

Summary The Nook Touch Reader is a one-trick pony...a very simple urban text reader. Readers without access to Wi-fi hotspots will be disappointed by the lack of 3G capability that was an option with the original Nook. The Nook Touch does not handle PDF files very well - text can be read, but images will be missing and special text layouts will be lost. Because of the e-ink format, color images are in grey tones and may loose some of their clarity. The Nook Touch Reader is a pretty good text reader, but don't expect much beyond that.
