NOOK HD+ 9" 16GB Wi-Fi Tablet 1.5GHz Dual Core Processor Full HD Display Slate
What a great tablet
Was bought this as part of my Christmas and it was a good deal, has google play. Fast internet connection via chrome. Full hd screen, films/ tv from google play are sharp, crisp, clear. Battery life is comparable with ipad 2 that family has which means lasts for ages. Excellent screen size. Re google play, all my apps are available as they are on my android phone.

Not the prettiest, but the screen is so sharp. Full access to Google Play and fast browsing (similar to kindle 7).

I've given the Nook HD + five stars across the board which might seem excessive but for the money paid (on offer) it is an excellent buy. It does everything it claims to do plus I can download ebooks from my library, a massive bonus if I can't get there in person.
Apart from reading I enjoy watching TV, listening to the radio, doing crosswords etc, all on my Nook. It is much quicker to check my emails on the Nook than switching on my lap top although writing them is a bit tedious because of the necessarily small keyboard. The screen does get a bit grubby but it cleans. It's also a good idea to switch off the wi-fi when you're not using the Nook in order to conserve battery power.
Now if I could just work out how to down load my photographs from my laptop to my Nook ........

Nook HD+ 16GB
I selected this product for my wife, over a Kindle Fire HD, having read some less than flattering comments from owners of the Kindle. Premature screen failures seem to be common.
While the touchscreen on the Nook is fairly user-friendly, it is more accurately controlled with a stylus. A screen protector is also a worthwhile investment. Both these items are readily available via the Web, at a fraction of the price charged on the Nook site.
One disapointment is that the Nook HD+ has it's own connector which means you cannot charge from your laptop / pc when connected to it. A straghtforward USB connector would be a welcome addition. But for that fact, I would have no hesitation in awarding this product an overall 5 star rating.
I had occasion to contact Nook's Tech Support - on Christmas Day - and received excellent help from them.
To sum it up, the Nook HD+ "does exactly what it says on the tin" and my wife is delighted. Win, Win!!
