My son purchased a nook a couple years ago. It never was a great experience. The device was always sluggish, but once a book was retrieved, it was adequate. Just had the device crash on me with error c7850...the deathnail for the Nook, apparently. If you are considering buying a Nook, don't. I have an iPad and it is worth every penny....I never said that about the Nook. Tech Support was a waste of time. I actually had a rep have me power down the device six times by holding the power button for 20 seconds each time. The second rep finally told me my Nook was dead, and I could trade it in for another...no thanks. Avoid the Nook.

Not interested in reading on a backlit screen, thanks, (and this is from someone who does have a full android tablet) so, no, I wouldn't consider an iPad an adequate reader. It might be worth the money, but not as a reader...
As for the power on/on, of course the Tech Support rep had you do this. That's the procedure to factory reset the device; of course that was one of the methods tried to revive your dead NOOK.
I don't know why you wouldn't take a replacement - at the very least you could get a working NOOK for your non-working NOOK and then give it/donate it to someone who would appreciate it.
You don't have ot like the device, but being misinformed and being incredulous about what one thinks one knows is irritating to those who do know...

So, you bought a nook that was "sluggish" from the beginning, but never bothered to exchange it, and then used it for "a couple years" and now your mad that it's dead?
Um, maybe you should have returned it for one that worked properly to begin with? Just sayin'.

My wife and I have 3 Nooks between us and only has 1 problem with the charging cable on a NC and that was fixed with a store visit. I wish that other electronic gear that we have bought was as reliable.

I have been a Nook owner since December, 2010. My first Nook was the N1E which I loved a lot because of its elegant design (back then), its user friendliness and the quality of the characters shown on the screen. Then I upgraded to the NST, then I purchased the NC, which I sold prior to purchasing the NT and now I own the NSTG which works like a charm. I donated my N1E to a charitable organization as a fund raiser and based on what I heard, the new owner of my pre-owned N1E is quite satisfied with it. Have I had some problems? Yes! Have they been solved? Yes, and in a very professional and decent manner. Will I buy other Nooks? Yes, I will, indeed.
