Great deal. God bless us,everyone.
#3
Does anyone know if this will come with a charger. I've looked very carefully in the Morgan description but nowhere does it say that there will be a charger included.
#4
Be warned mine from new overheated and marked all the back of the device, also the NAND flash is very unstable causing reboots, probably why they have been refurbished but good device if they work ok without faults.
#5
had an HD+ and HD great devices especially with cm on
#6
amazing screen for the money. still haven't got round to putting a custom rom on yet
#7
I got this a while back from this seller. Have had many tablets and can confidently say that this device is getting a bit long in the tooth now. I put Kit Kat on it and it helped to some extent. Its good as a backup but nothing more. I would probably spend this money on a cheap windows tablet now ..

What nonsense

I put CM11 on it and does everything I would expect a decent android tablet to do at this price point

best guide for CM11 installation:-

Agree 100%. Big fan of the Nook HD+ and have had mine for 18 months+ but now it is showing its its age. At launch, it didn't have a leading edge spec to start with, except for the exceptional screen resolution and quality. The modest twin core cpu struggles at times to shift all those pixels around the screen. Installing a custom ROM is quite easy to do, improves things no end but android Lollipop if/when it ever becomes available just might be one step too far for the hardware. Need to factor in that it has no camera, no GPS and requires a proprietary cable to charge and/or connect to your pc. In the last 12 months, the cost of tablets has tumbled as the number of products on the market has increased. Don't get me wrong, I think the Nook HD+ is just about worth the current asking price but it is no longer the absolute bargain that it once was. Still use my Nook HD+ from time to time but love my Surface Pro Mk1 tablet running Windows 8.1.

I would think it would come with a charger as it's a proprietary one.
#11
yes that was my point. I think its a good tablet but lets be realistic. This is a refurb unit, end of life that is underspecced compared to todays devices. It's still good for what it is but the way electronics depreciate in value then this shouldn't be getting heat for being the same price I bought it 6 months ago. Your money can stretch so much further now. For example look at the prices of the Kindle DX or the Linx Windows tablets. Far better value for money. I'm not saying the Nook has had it's time just that things have moved on. It still has a great screen but I only use it as a backup and for reading because it's painfully slow compared to other tablets I have.

You will not find another 1920x1080p screen on a 9" tablet at this price point. Install cyanogen kitkat on it, book text is sharp and and it runs fast car games really well.

Get a 32gb version from CEX for £82.50 (inc delivery) and get a year warranty! They seem to regularly get a few in stock.

Also, you can now plug anything up to a 128gb Micro SD Card in the slot at the bottom, great for adding all your (legal) HD films to watch on holiday, and actually view in crisp HD. I use Integral 64gb UltimaPro cards as they were a lot cheaper and work fine.

Thanks for the link Chocci, I am finding my Nook a bit sluggish as it came out of the box. I will give this a try

Had a look earlier at Cex as that's where I got mine (last xmas, BEFORE it went down in price, so paid like 120 for it...) but it seems to be OOS for the 32gb grade A, and the Grade A 16gb is 80 quid. Have added the in stock one to the description anyway!

Actually is it 1200p: 1920x1200, and it is a full RGB screen, not RGBW pentile like most of the 1600p screens around. The screen is just fantastic - sharp, good colours, good contrast, decent brightness, very low minimum brightness etc.

And you can install CM11 on it, which is highly recommended.

But it is getting a bit slow. Actually the CPU specs are still quite up to date, but maybe the small RAM, the flash or the GPU are letting it down. It is usable, but not snappy.

I would say get a more modern tablet, but 9" tablets with decent resolution do cost a lot more than this. So still a good choice for a kid or if you do not need the fastest tablet.

I doubt it, I bought one brand new a year or so ago and it didn't have a charger, just a USB charge cable.
#18
I bought one (32Gb) when they were £199 and it's still my main reading/browsing device running CM11.

I bought a second refurb from this seller as my two year old hogged mine.
He is still using it everyday 6 months on, and it's survived being dropped and stood on.

It's key feature is it's brilliant screen. It's fine for you tube, videos, angry birds, reading comics etc.

For these use cases, I don't feel the need to upgrade for the next while.

I have a 32GB one for sale if anyone is interested. too big for me to carry in my bag so hardly used. PM me

I have had my Nook HD for 15 months and have been running CM on it and have never had a problem with it.

I use it mostly for browsing when at home but it gets a lot of hammer when I go abroad watching movies/videos off a portable harddrive. Best feature being that with Wondershare player you can play DVD .vob files without needing to do any conversion/decoding.

I do keep thinking about getting a new better spec tablet but while this one keeps working why would I waste my money on something that will basically just do the same thing.

My daughter is getting a Hudl 2 for Christmas so I will be able to see how far android tablets have progressed.

Have you put CM11 on? I did and when the lock screen kicks in you have to reboot to get back in. Apart from that I lived CM11, shame it renders it unusable.

have you a cover on it? Vlose th4 cover and re-open it then try again. Known fault with the cover magnet sensor.

No cover. It's hardly lightweight to start.

I bought one from them a few months back which was excellent. My daughter decided she wanted one last month, and I was sent two duff units. One wouldn't charge, and the other kept switching on and off. They refunded reasonably quickly, but it was obvious they hadn't been checked. Hope none of you get either of the two I returned.

CM11 is fine here. It does crash every once in a while, which may be hardware or software related. The lock screen lags a bit, but is otherwise ok.

using one of these Nook HD+ running CM Android 4.4.4
great machine. only issue I have is the charging cable. very difficult to find a cheap one on line as I don't think they are made anymore. ended up paying over £6 for one from China. good luck trying to find an official one cheap, you'd pay half the price of the tablet again to get a charging cable.
make sure one is included with device otherwise it's an expensive extra

That was a good few months back, not now (£5 Nook cases/chargers on the B&N website).

There's a third party Nook HD/HD+ USB cable here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-USB-Sync-Charge-cord-Cable-For-Barnes-Noble-Nook-HD-HD-Tablet-7-9-/121503836833?pt=UK_iPad_Tablet_Accessories&hash=item1c4a316aa1 (quite a few on ebay now, sometimes can be bought around £5+P&P. Of course it's from China but it got a decent review on xda when I posted it on their forums). Not sure I'd take the risk with a third party AC adapter, though, for obvious reasons.

I ended up getting a third-party girly case from the US, wanted one with a kickstand and wake up function when the case is opened.

As for usability, I have CM11 on mine (the newest version is the buggiest I've used in my few months of HD+ ownership but hopefully a newer update will fix the random reboots I'm getting). I tend to use mine for books anyway, I don't demand too much from my Nook HD+.

Edit: Just checked, the one I have is CM11 cm-11-20141112-SNAPSHOT-M12. I use the snapshot versions, not the nightlies. I had one occasion on this update where the screen went black, the Nook was unresponsive and I thought it was a goner! Had to hold down the power button and volume up to make it reboot.

There is a bug with Cyanogenmod (every version I've had so far) where unlocking the screen makes it flicker and refuse to unlock, too, after it's been idle for ages, which gets a bit annoying. Rebooting fixes it. Or is it just me? :p

Btw the Morgan Computers Nook HD+ should come with the official AC adapter and USB cable supplied (I have the 32GB version). Mine looked immaculate and has been just fine (bar the rather buggy Cyanogenmod update recently, but that will be superseded soon).
#33
paid £35 for used one off ebay without box/usb cable/ac charger, didn't realise how important it was to have the official nook charger to charge the tablet until I read on hotuk forums, luckily the usb cable and ac adaptor from ebay [hong kong] worked fine and I have no problems charging now.
nothing comes close for under £50 the 1080p screen is really great , I'm running it standard.

I get the same problems as you too with my CM11 snapshot. Not frequent enough to annoy me though

I ordered three gradeA 32GB ones last year when CEX had loads at £95 each and Nook were selling cables really cheap on there website so got a few as spare. I also picked up another two gradeA 32gb Nook HD+'s from CEX just two weeks ago for £80 each.

I was thinking of getting one of these but after spending some time researching, it seems that there may be a problem with the build quality of the charging cable with many people reporting that it stops working within a few months (This is the original cable as supplied with the Nook HD). Replacement cables seem to be as rare as hens with teeth, although I did read an earlier post saying they can be obtained from China. Has anyone any comments about the quality of the charging cable? TIA.

All my original Nook cables work? even after the kids have been at them (_;). To be honest, they've lasted better than my original iPhone lightning cable, but then that does get used daily, whereas the Nook cables only get use half as much!

Never had any problem with mine, though I've only had it a few months: I charge it every morning as I take my Nook (my Aldiko Book Reader Premium is stuffed with all sorts of .epubs) to bed.

Edit: I should point out it doesn't need charged every morning, it's just habit with me. The battery itself is pretty good.

Got two in our house and never had a problem with the cables or the hardware for that matter. It's worth pointing out that the cables, just like the charger, the official cases and the devices themselves, are all well designed and assembled using premium materials. This is because they were originally intended to retail at higher prices than they eventually went for. Barnes & Noble (i.e. Nook) sought to compete with amazon in the states and expand into Europe. The ill fated venture into the treacherous tablet market ended with their loss and our gain.
