Buying a big gadget; like a computer, a car or a refrigerator; is a really big deal. For months, you've probably saved up and shopped around for the best brands and the best deals, and n the process, you've probably become pretty stoked about your upcoming purchase. So when you finally get the thing into the office, driveway or kitchen, why would you want to waste valuable playing time by reading the instruction manual? Maybe because it could save your ass one day. In case you were so excited on the big fridge reveal day (lol) that you actually lost the manual, maybe this site can help...
SafeManuals/Diplodocs is a huge resource of authorized manuals with more than 1.2 million manuals uploaded for almost everything you can think of with a manual - from domestic appliances, TV & Audio equipment, phones, to computers, cars, watches and digital cameras.
Once you find the manual (you think) that you want, you can preview the first 3 pages before downloading to confirm, see if its available in a differentlanguage (if you need), and check out any other available literature for your broken gadget (like quick start guides).
We're gonna check this one out—inevitably—the next time the batteries fall out of our universal remote and we can't remember the code for our television set or DVD player.
