"[O]nly $60 more" is a whopping 50% increase and the new GlowLight has better resolution.

Plus, you can buy the Nook in a b&m store and not have to order internationally with its concomitant return problems and get on-the-spot customer help and service. For some, with larger hands or impaired mobility the larger bezels are an advantage. And... there are more reasons why some might prefer this device or to buy from B&N.

The H20 is not a one-size-fits-all reader, no matter how much you like yours; no device is. I think a lot of us, including me, can suffer from confirmation bias in regard to readers and I always find it useful to consider if I'm overvaluing aspects of my readers and underrating advantages offered by a different model. Certainly it helps when you're offering advice!
