For the price, this is a great media device too, BN is still adding to their movie and TV offerings, but you can use netflix which looks great.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Web browsing

Cons: I keep hitting "Switch keyboard" instead of space bar, keyboard cover up what I'm trying to type, sometimes browser seems slow, can't use Nook study, need more graduate-level academic books, and no back arrow for email, browser, and calendar apps.

Touchscreen

It's also really responsive and the scrolling feels really smooth.
