    How much per GB?

      I'm going to buy a Nook HD+ but I'm not sure which size. I couldn't find anything about it but I could be blind. But how much can the 16 GB hold and hold much can the 32 GB hold?

          It's hard to say for sure, because it depends on how big the files are.  If you have very high quality video or audio it will take more space than lower quality.

           

          That said, general guidelines seem to be:

           

          16GB: 4,000 songs or 16 hours of video.

          32GB: 8,000 songs or 32 hours of video.

           

          And with the Nook HD and HD+ you have the option of adding a class 4 32gb microsd card to augment the memory - a major plus point!

           

          My 16gb HD+ has a 32gb sdcard, and I have 20 gb music - about 12 and a half days if I listened back-to -back.  I also have 10 movies, 250 photos both big and small, and about 70 books, some memory  hungry apps and 8 and a half gig left over.

          I know that some contributors to this forum have added a 64 gb card, and for some that has worked well too.

          So I guess it depends what you will use it most for.

          Good luck with your choice - with the deals around at the moment you are in a great postition!

              I'm struggling to get my movies to work from the SD card. They won't play from there and dragging them from internal memory to mounted SD results in an error message. Did you experience similar difficulties?

                  I have some movies on an SD card for my wife's 8GB HD.  They play fine.  I prefer using the Movie Gallery App as it allows me to change the screen size to something less squished.

                For the price it is right now, until Sunday, I would definitely get the 32GB.

                  Here are a few considerations: 1) A Nook HD+ will need between 2 and 3 GB to run its basic software. 2) Regular ebooks (primarily text, few images, no audio or video) require little space. On average, one GB will hold about 1,000 "regular" ebooks. 3) Apps, magazines, enhanced books, and catalogs have to go on the internal storage. Some of these files are rather large. 4) Movies can be assigned to internal storage or to a micro SD card. Some HD movies can require 7 GB or space or more. For a $30 difference, I definitely think it is worth doubling a Nook's internal memory, so long as one's budget allows.

                    I'll second all the suggestions to get the higher capacity one.

                     

                    You can always get an SD card and add that.

                     

                    However, a 16 GB SD card would cost $15 to $25. Perhaps even more.

                     

                    Some things (actually lots of things) like apps from Nook Store can't be saved to SD Card.

                     

                    Additionally there are quite a few bugs with SD Cards because Android uses a file transfer protocol Called MTP and that causes lots of issues with SD Cards.

                     

                    If you start watching HD movies then space fills up really quickly.

                     

                    If you can afford $30 extra then the larger capacity one is well worth getting.
