"Good but not great"3.5 starson by dwight-shrute
Pros: Great screen, faster than the Nook Color.
Good reading device for books and BN magazines
Cons: Applications limited to Nook store and very difficult to access non-BN apps (can't sideload and hard to root)
Summary: I purchased a Nook Color for my wife and subsequently purchased a Nook Tablet for myself. If you are comfortable staying within the confines of the BN software, the Nook Color is quite good and the tablet is better.
Unfortunately, BN software limited the system's ability to root (boot directly into android) the Tablet while the Nook Color is easier to root.
My opinion is that if I bought the unit, I don't appreciate limitations on what I can do with it. Just my view.
