How many times have you dug through the dark recesses of a drawer or closet, looking for the manuals for your TV, your computer, your appliances? There are endless manuals stacked up somewhere in an unknown location, because I know I can never find the one I’m looking for when I need it most. Whether you need to fix that flashing clock on your VCR (time to upgrade to a DVD player) or you need to find out how to fix your dishwasher, at some point in your life, you’re going to wish you remembered what you did with those manuals. Thanks to the world of digitization of just about everything, we finally have an answer – ManualsLib.
Billed as the ultimate manuals library, ManualsLib currently contains over 1.9 million manuals in easy to read PDF format. They cover more than 1.4 million products across 35,570 brands – and according to their website, it takes up 3.2 TB of data! After we heard about it, we input several products we had around the office to see if we could pull up manuals – from computers to printers, phones to TVs – and we found every last one of them that we searched for.
So next time you’re on the hunt for a manual, head over to ManualsLib and see if you can find what you need – it’s a lot easier than trying to remember which box in the attic has the manual you’re looking for.
