don't be put off by the dual core CPU..
it's plenty strong .. once you put cyanogen on it which it super easy.
but beware its got a proprietary charging socket .. no obvious HDMI out... and a problem. with Bluetooth where everything slows down and it interferes with the WiFi.. this is a know. problems. with no fix.
if not using Bluetooth buy with confidence.
I still use mine with Bluetooth... its still plenty fine for me.
great screen..

These are great little machines. Lack of camera is a slight let down but otherwise excellent. Amazing screen too!

bought a refurb from Morgan computers for way less-perfect condition.
great screen.

Great device but the proprietary charger mentioned earlier is a real pain. Very difficult to get extra cables and no adapters available.
#6
I use mine mostly for watching Youtube and Twitch via their apps, really nice screen (actual resolution is 1920x1280). I installed Cyanogenmod 10.2.1 on mine though, the stock Nook skin over android is pretty clunky. I used stock for a while with Nova Launcher, which helped a bit, but Cyanogenmod is much better on the tablet.
#7
excellent tablets for the price, I have 2 both rooted with cyanogenmod and they are nippy little buggers!
#8
Battery life?
#9
I bought one for £79 in Sainsburys a few months back in clearance. Worked fine for a while but recently, it has started to freeze, jump from emails to facebook to chrome/firefox etc. One moment i can be looking at youtube next it jumps to my emails etc.

I just love the screen resolution but get fed up with its faults. I'm back to Sainsburys for a refund as Nook GB are not interested! There is only so many times I'm prepared to reset it. Shame is I have a spare charger and case for it.

Battery life?

it's very good, these are the snapshots of my 3-year old Nook HD+ running on CM11:

Total time on battery: 21d 21h 47m

Screen on time (SOT): 6h 23m (largely used for streaming via Plex/watching videos on microSD card via MX Player)

Usage over >21d:

Settings:
Location on – Battery saving, WiFi scanning always available (although device is always at home with good WiFi signal usually)
WiFi off when not using
Brightness at 40%

More proof:
35d+ with only 4h SOT but still at 23%:

How did you grab those screenshots if I may ask?

good device but it could be had at this price nearly a year ago. surely there are better tabs at this price point now, as others have said cyogen speeds things up and the screen is great. fine for anyone looking for a video and Internet.
#13
Are these designed primarily to be a proper tablet or a top of the range e-reader?

The screen sounds great, but lack of a camera seems a real downer.
#14
Using one now, great screen, good size. Downside for me are the constant updates which can't seem to be turned off. Not able to do anything for more than about 5 mins without being interrupted (usually takes me back to the homescreen which is super annoying). This problem has got worse over time.

Hudl 2 for another £20. I've got the nook running cyogen and my son's got the hudl 2. Except for the 0.8 inch you lose from the screen, the hudl 2 beats this with everything else. Try running goat simulator on the nook, not possible, yet runs smoothly on the hudl 2.

I wondered what causes that, very annoying!

I would like to install cyanogen on Nook HD, but why in step 4 does it talk about Windows? Please excuse me if I'm being thick!! I'm scared of messing up completely & ending up with a useless brick. Thanks.
#19
May try re installing CM11 as my experience doesn't reflect those above. Poor battery life, freezing, lagging and constantly jumping tp home screen. Would like to go back to stock even, if I can find a concise how to. Great tablet though.
#20
I have this with cm11 on it and it mostly runs great although i would certainly buy a hudl2 instead as it can be a little slow at times and no hdmi out is a pain.

You running the stock nook operating system or a custom rom like cyanogenmod? Android app auto updates can be switched off in your play store settings.. As for the deal, the Nook HD+ is still a great value device but not the utter bargain it was 18 months ago. This is becsuse tablet prices have fallen and the competition has improved. The quality of the full hd res screen remains its stand out feature but the dual core cpu is beginning to show its agei. Still great for browsing, video, streaming and light gaming. Installing a custom rom is a must and is both easy and fun to do. Plenty of advice and support out there in various forums for both the expert and the noob.

Mine won't charge & no way of getting to battery,also no GPS as well as all the other things mentioned here. I bought a Nokia 9050 phone from Tesco for £140 & i'm so happy with it excepting the screen is much smaller. The nook is in the bin..sorry to all the supporters of Nook.

It is a great little tablet, fabulous display, but it is beginning to show its age. Apart from the display, the key advantage is the very sturdy built. But I think the Hudl 2 may be a better investment now.
#24
I own one and my experience hasn't been great. Initially I was very happy with it but after about 4 months it started to get terribly laggy, this was apparently down to a bug in the firmware and/or older version of Android that stopped something called TRIM working (google it), with the result that anything involving writing to the onboard storage slowed to a crawl.
I put CyanogenMod / cm11 on it which allegedly works around the TRIM bug (takes less than an hour) and it's still sluggish but mostly OK except for Chrome which is unusably slow.
I do wonder whether mine has some kind of hardware fault as the screen unlocking doesn't work reliably either - when going from lock screen mode to the home screen it will often simply go blank. Bizarrely my children worked out that shaking the tablet before unlocking seems to clear this..
I got mine at what was a decent price in July 2013 and it's been serviceable value for money but if I knew then how much time I'd spend researching the issues with it I'd have bought something else!

Stock. I think the problem is actually 'syncing', which it seems to have to do constantly. I'm told this can't be turned off/suspended.

Overall, I like the tablet and it's certainly paid me back over the time I've owned it but this syncing thing is annoying. I might try a full reset.

so you binned it even though you may have a faulty charger?

and to compare it to a phone is just weird! :)

Mine doesnt always turn the screen on from sleep. I just put my hand on the left side of the screen and remove it and the screen comes on.

use dolphin browser. infinitely better than chrome

put cyanogenmod on it. Nook stock is awful in comparison. once you do, you'll be kicking yourself you didnt do it on day 1 ;)

This is exactly my experience. I find it strange why everyone raves about these - I just do not even use mine now. I thought I was being very unfair comparing it to my ipad but I now I have two android talents in the house which are years better than this.

I found my Nook performed better without being rooted. Web browser constantly shut down with cyanogenmod. Nova launcher sweetens it too. Mine is used as a browser and email checker and for Bluetooth streaming of tunein and Spotify.

CEX do grade B for £62 or grade A for £68. Good deal especially if you've got vouchers or things to trade in.

The company are terrible if you have an issue or problem wouldn't use Barnes and Noble since...

I like the look of this tablet and have been considering one of these for a while. I wouldn't pay the ~£90 Asda want for it due to it's age and the slowish CPU in it, but if I could find a good one on eBay or somewhere for around the £60 mark, I think that would be my tipping point.

Might seem an odd question, but could someone who has this tablet please try the game Hayday on it and see how it runs? Any jerkiness or lagging, any slowdown when performing activities? Really important it plays that game well as the person I am considering this tablet for absolutely adores that game and the last tablet I got (hannspad sn1at71w) actually on the very same Asda sale, just couldn't quite do it and slowed down badly at the fishing spot and when doing any activities. Hayday must be just a bit more demanding than the usual match 3 type games as the hannspad would run those just fine....

How are these for reading magazines? Do you have to keep zooming in a lot to see the text? Or can you fit to page and everything is clear?
#37
We've got five of the Nook Hd+ devices. The last two only cost £80 for 32gb versions. The kids love them and play games or watch YouTube all the time. The wife loves the sharpness of the text on magazines and books, and being a 9 inch screen size means no zooming in to read. For me, the best thing about these is the fact you can plug in a 128gb memory card and load it with loads of HD films or TV shows in many different formats and they just work!

Cyanogenmod had a few issues at first, but Google usually has the answers.

If you are experiencing flickering screens while charging, work out how to enter developer mode and enable H/W decoding.

For most magazines the answer is yes. Using a decent pdf reader makes pinch and zoom almost effortless. To read a full magazine page without faffing about you really need a screen of 12" or so. The screen ratio is important also. The old android 10.1" letterbox style screens e.g. nexus 10, are no good as they were designed to display wide screen movies and used in portrait mode neither look nor feel right. The nook was one of the first android tablets to use the 3:2 screen ratio as nook designed it for primarily reading books and mags (bought from them).

Great tablet, put Cyanogenmod on and use it every day for reading comics on the bog, going through 2000AD atm and just reached the year 2000 X)

Can someone explain why cyogenmod is worth doing if the nook is working fine?
