Arrow Screen Lock on NOOK

I am thinking of buying a nook touch but saw in reviews that it screens locks quite often. Is it true if i buy now or B&N have fixed the problem??

I haven't had any screen lock issues with mine while reading ePubs, side loaded and bought through B&N.

I did have a lock once, but with a large PDF file I side-loaded. I think it's largely due with PDF files, something e-readers aren't exactly friendly with (kindle, nook, or otherwise).

That being said, it's a good reader.

The recent 1.1 update seems to have fixed this problem. There are no complaints anymore about this on the B&N forum.

I think mine has froze twice since I got it (I bought it very close to the release day). I don't think that is bad at all.

Mine never did. The nook did, though, but it was a bad app. I removed it and it came back to life.

My N1E would do something that necessitated a reboot maybe once every three months. Since getting my N2E in early October, I haven't had any lock-ups or other issues that required a reboot.

I would take the online "reviews" that this happens quite often with a grain of salt. Those who don't experience problems rarely take the time to report that everything is fine. Those who are having problems often overgeneralize and give the impression that their issue is happening to most users on a frequent basis.

The N2E is one of the most hassle-free pieces of equipment I have ever owned.
