B&N Selling Refurbished Nook Colors for $225

Nook Color Videos

So I stumbled across an interesting listing today on Barnes and Noble’s eBay Store. They are now selling refurbished Nook Colors for $225 with free shipping.

Apparently one other person found the listing before me because there was 1 sold in the history; by this time tomorrow I bet it will be over 1000.

That’s not a huge discount but it’s $24 less than a brand spanking new Nook Color from B&N. And it includes the usual 1 year warranty.

Even at $249, the Nook Color is one of the best values for an LCD ereader/tablet on the market. Other tablets in that price range either have inferior screens, weak processors, or plain just don’t work well.

We are all still waiting on the firmware update for the Nook Color that will give it some added functionality and provide it with access to B&N’s soon-to-launch Nook App Store. Until then its primary purpose is e-reading, unless you hack it or use a ROM on a memory card—both of which can turn it into a pretty awesome Android tablet.

You can check my review of the Nook Color for all the specs and details on the device.

Update: Barnes and Noble now offer the $225 Nook Color directly from their website as well.

  1. Good find. I have had a Google alert set for Nook color refurbished but hadn’t received any other hit as of yet. While I prefer the Samsung Tab I suppose it is not worth the extra $125.

  2. Well I bought it. Now I own two Nooks and an IPOD, although I still have neither of the Nooks.

  3. The Nook Wifi-3G and the Nook Color. One for outdoors and one for indoors is the way I look at it.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if I got rid of both of them before the end of summer on the basis something better comes along in both categories.

    Now I need a 10″ for reading pdfs………..

  4. I’ve got my $119 Dollar Nook 3G and my $40 Literati..and believe it or not, the Literati is the one I use mostly because it’s used indoors mostly.
    Of course there are always new toys such as the nook color tempting one to upgrade…
