You can sideload epubs onto B&N Nook devices. What I didn't like was the limit on the amount of space you could use for sideloaded books. The numbers I recall are that the Nook Simple Touch had 2Gb of storage but no more than 256MB could be used for sideloaded books. One of the Nook tablets had a limit of 1GB out of it's 8 or 16GB of storage. By comparison, the Kobo ereaders don't have any artificial limits on sideloaded books.

As for DRM, B&N seems to support both their own variant and the standard Adobe version so you can download library books and transfer them using ADE.
