Good Tablet for Reading
It has some issues with closing programs. Not sure if that is an android issue or a Nook issue, since I installed an N2A card to have it working more like an android. I have had no issues downloading apps, either before or after N2A. I was getting screen flickers while using it and discovered, through research, that Nook tends to do that when plugged in. So now I unplug it when using it. The screen is awesome. Everything is so bright and clear. It is a little heavy to hold in one hand while lying down, but it is manageable.
Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

A nice tablet, especially when jailbroken with Cyanogenmod
As I begin to review my recently-acquired Nook HD+ I need to point out that it is running Cyanogenmod, a bootloader that offers a more open and unadulterated version of Android 4.4 “KitKat” than the locked down version of Android that the device runs by default. This device was already modified when I acquired it, so I have never experienced it running in its native state. I have heard performance is a little better without the Nook OS's bloat, but I cannot confirm that from firsthand experience. That said, the HD+ is a nice piece of hardware. Slightly smaller than an iPad, the nine-inch touch screen is sharp, bright and responsive. Its 16GB of built-in storage is easily augmented with up to 32 GB on a micro SD card. Unfettered access to the Google Play Store means a greater degree of flexibility in application options. One ironic exception is the Nook for Android app. When attempting to load it, I received an error message says the app isn't compatible with the hardware, go figure.
If you're heavily invested in the Barnes & Noble / Nook ecosystem, this could definitely cramp your style. For me, it makes little difference as I mostly use the Amazon Kindle reading app on my various devices. This loaded fine, giving me instant access to my Kindle library. Other Android apps, including MS Office, loaded without a hiccup. Another minor shortcoming for some users is the tablet lacks a camera. Again, this is no big deal to me. It should also be noted that this tablet, unlike most earlier nooks—and most other Android-based tablets—does not use a standard micro USB cable for its data and power connection. Instead, it uses a proprietary connector that at a glance resembles the 32-pin connector that Apple used on its iPods, iPhones, and iPads until a couple of years ago. Fortunately, replacement cables are available inexpensively on eBay.
So, is the Nook HD+ with Cyanogenmod an iPad killer? Not quite, but it's no slouch. While it's arguably a bit ahead of a first-generation iPad, which lacks a camera and is itself hamstrung with an outdated OS, its capabilities and performance fall a bit short of even a second- or third-generation model, except when it comes to price. Used Nook HD+ tablets in good condition are readily available on eBay for well under $100, about half what a comparable iPad fetches. Therefore, dollar for dollar, you arguably can get a whole lot more tablet for your money with the Nook HD+. For the money, it is definitely worth considering.
Pros: large, sharp, responsive touch display and good performance, especially with Cyanogenmod.
Cons: No camera, proprietary data cable, locked down default OS, Nook apps not compatible with Cyanogenmod.Read full review

A lot to like
I anticipated battery problems but found that the battery is quite adequate for my use. The WIFI radio seems to be a bit weaker than my other devices but that is about the only complaint I can find. I really like the tab/hole. I've attached an old camera strap. Works well with Google Drive as far as connecting with files or you can just copy them using the USB cable.

Love it. Great reader and HD video even with U tube and video sites !!!
This is my 5th device with a HD screen. If your on the "cheap" great choice. Better than most IPADS for color and reader quality. Great battery life and interface is simple for anyone to use. Even has a micro sd card slot to add videos or whatever !!. Also Can go to play store but o/s is older 3.2 android version. Ok for some apps but not all. Best bang for the buck under 100.00 Full reader and HD video device with Barnes and Noble books and can add Kindle reader as well. Great for tube too...grab one..Jay

Economical musician's tool and e-reader with high resolution display
Good musician's tool and e-reader. Screen resolution is very sharp (almost as good as ipad for much fewer $$). Includes access to Google Play, which is good, as B&N store is much more limited for apps. Haven't used it for video, not my thing. Bought it mainly to display jazz "fakebooks" and it seems quite good for that, although I haven't tried it with a bluetooth page-flip pedal, for the 2-page charts.
Main drawback as far as I'm concerned is that Android 5 is not yet available for this device (and may never be), and it's needed for "iGigBook", the best app for managing fakebook collections and set lists. One can boot into earlier Android versions from the SD card, and I've tried that, but not used it extensively.
Have read some books on it, great. Browsing & email work fine also.
