My son's had one of these for 18 months. The lag is so bad, it's practically unusable when running stock ROM. It's a relatively old version of android (4.1?) which will never see an update. I bought him a Hudl 2 to replace the Nook a while back, but that got smashed last week so gone back and rooted the old Nook and put Cyanogenmod on it (Android 5.1.1).

It functions much better, but there is still some slight lag. But being rooted means that he can't use things like Now TV and Sky Go on it (although Amazon Prime Video does work fine).

For the money, I'd recommend the Hudl 2 for a start over this.
got this for my daughter a couple of years ago . its so slow now its become unusable

HUDL 2 no longer available, Tesco have pulled out. As for installing Cyanogomod a quick google is all you need, there's some very easy guides to follow. It will of course invalidate any warranty (you can revert if it's still functioning if needed...). As noted it improved things greatly but still not the the extent I'd spend this amount of £ on one today. Fwiw we've 2 HD plus's and a standard HD - bought when heavily discounted 2years ago now. I pretty much only use mine for Kindle reading and minecraft nowadays. It would get retired to the media front end for the server, alas the Blackberry Playbook, which is also pretty useless for anything else, is still excelling at that job.

I can't believe there still stock around - it's doing no one any good. B&N should have fire sale's the lot for £50 ea when they pulled them - would have had a lot of happy customers and a quick turnaround of inventory.
Excellent screen, but I only paid £69 for a refurbed version 2 years ago. It's only used for media viewing now,but it's great for that
beautiful tablet, screen resolution is excellent

only downside its awfully slow and laggy now
Bought it 3 years ago for the same price. Still one of the best screens I've used but really really slow. Tried roms and all but gave up using it in the end.
I had one of these. They are fairly slow as the hardware was more designed around the regular Nook HD with the lower resolution screen. It became a lot more usable with the resolution cranked down a bit, but overall for this price the selection of high quality tablets available is staggering compared to when the HD+ was new.

They can be awkward to root. eg you need to use a Sandisk class 4 sd card (not class 10, not another make of card). Easiest way would be to download n2acard (https://www.n2acards.com/) but you are paying for something you may be able to do for free, just takes a bit more effort.

The stock rom is terrible and makes it pretty unusable - update the OS and it improves enormously.
