Inexpensive but good

Nook Tablet 7"

from TabletPCReview
The Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet 7″ is an easily portable ebook reader that can also handle social networking, web sites, and casual games. Given its small size and modest speed, it’s really not up to much more though. Still, the full version of Android gives it flexibility, within its limitations... Full review

A compelling value proposition for those of you that have not jumped ship to Amazon or Kobo

Nook Tablet 7"

from Good E-Reader

Barnes and Noble receives a ton of negative press from the media, mainly because the people in charge of Nook have little to no e-reading or e-book experience. Over the years the bookseller has unveiled a series of small initiatives that are not game changing in itself, but do appeal to a select number of users. Nook Readouts is one of them, it hypes up upcoming titles, gives you free short stories and interviews with your favorite authors. Nook Audiobooks floats under the radar, but the Google Play App is well developed and offers the same selection as you would find on most mainstream app... Full review

Most polished piece of hardware Barnes and Noble have ever issued

Nook GlowLight Plus

from Good E-Reader

Barnes and Noble is calling the Nook Glowlight Plus the most lightweight e-reader they ever made, at 6.9 ounces. It is waterproof, dust proof, has a super high resolution screen and incorporates software features never seen on an e-reader before. It has a lifetime in-store warranty, which should build consumer confidence that Barnes and Noble is serious about e-readers again. The overall design is sleek and modern, and forgoes the ridiculous rubber edges from the 2013 model. It is now available for $129.99, with an additional 10% discount for Barnes & Noble Members.

Good but the Kindle Paperwhite is the same price

Nook GlowLight

from PC Advisor
The Nook GlowLight is a decent eReader if you're looking for one with a backlight. It's lighter than Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite but its rival is available at the same price with more features... Full review

Improved screen and backlight make for comfortable reading marathons

Nook GlowLight

from TechRadar

The Nook GlowLight isn't better than the Kindle Paperwhite, but it is a viable alternative for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it's cheaper upfront by £20. If you're looking for just a standard ereader with a backlight, then this will suffice.

Secondly, the design is different enough from Amazon's sharp, black rectangle to give you a moment's consideration. If, like me, you've had enough of black and grey gadgets and like the thought of a clean white look, then this could be for you. Yes, it's massively subjective, but all I'm saying is consider it.

As an ereader t... Full review

A great entry level eReader that will let users ditch conventional book lights

Nook GlowLight

from TabletPCReview
The Nook GlowLight is incredibly lightweight and offers some unique features, such as the button that takes the user back to their book, and the ability to turn the GlowLight off completely. However, the rubber bumper concerned testers, as they weren't comfortable with the fact that it came away from the device, exposing components... Full review

Beautiful edge lighting and classy design

Nook GlowLight

from ITProPortal
The Nook GlowLight is impressive due to its lesser weight, and brighter edge lighting than the Paperwhite. However, Amazon’s e-reader is still our favourite, thanks to its faster performance, more even lighting and font rendering, and the Paperwhite’s still best-in-class eBook store. But if this Nook GlowLight speaks to you, then you can easily buy it with confidence when the device emerges this side of the pond... Full review

Slimmer and lighter than before

Nook GlowLight

from Digital Trends
The new Nook GlowLight has a better screen and brighter light, but that light is still uneven, its lack of page turn buttons make it difficult to use for lefties, and the overall package can’t match the Kindle Paperwhite... Full review

Not so refreshing

Nook GlowLight

from Wired
The original GlowLight was a great device when it launched. Instead of pushing things forward, the latest version feels like an e-reader that got stuck in time. It’s at least a generation behind other offerings and introduces more problems than it solves... Full review

This is worth the upgrade if you read a ton in the dark and if font clarity matters to you

Nook GlowLight

from Good E-Reader
If you have the Nook Simple Touch or the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight this is worth the upgrade if you read a ton in the dark and if font clarity matters to you. Aside from those two things this reader is very much the same as previous generations in terms of the hardware. The lack of SD card is a black mark on this device, because it does not allow you expandable storage to load in more content... Full review

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this manufacturer.
