I picked up one of these a few weeks back. I use it as a media player using MX player. I copy my MKV files over onto and SD card and play them.

Couple things to note. The sound is on the bassy side using headphones. Also when hooked to a computer the SD doesnt show up as a drive. I had to use a card reader to copy files over.

Other than that, its well worth the $$$. The highest resolution 7" tablet out there.

I already answered this. You're forgetting about the Nook 'Tablet' which came after the Color and before the HD models.

Good one.

Hi everyone. I, too, have been wanting to play Amazon video on an Android device, but there hasn't been a way.

I read that someone on androidforums.com was able to do so using the Puffin browser (it supports the correct Flash version or something technical I don't understand). I've NO idea if that's true but I'll be trying it. It's not an app, but it's something at least.

Just FYI.

Just email woot support, They will usually work with you.
Very helpful.

I really want to pull the trigger on this, but with a Nook touch, a Nook Color, Vizio android tablet , Nexus 7 and a Kindle keyboard (which is probably going to be put up for sale), i can't really justify yet ANOTHER slate in the house....I think I have enough portable tablet/ereader/media players in the house for the 3 of us...lol

No surprise Amazon or Woot would sell Nooks. This is no more a competitor to the Kindle than any tablet. I think (OPINION ALERT) Amazon doesnt care if they make profit on the Kindle itself - they're selling you a gateway device optimized to buy stuff from them.

Still, the Nook is a way better value with better specs. Heck, almost any tablet is a way better value than the overpriced iPad.


No camera? That makes it a better deal for me, I can use it at work (cameras prohibited). My phone already has a camera. Heck, my camera has a camera.

I purchased this, & was on w/Barnes & Noble setting it up because the register date was showing up from a previous owner. Barnes & Noble informed me that they won't honor any warranty on this, nor will they transfer warranties. Waiting to hear back from Woot to see what's up...Hoping I'm not w/o any warranties...So beware people...
