Office lens / Adobe scan are always free .. used for the same purpose as this one.. Large number of positive reviews ..
It's built into the Google photo app top
I may be wrong, but isn't this one of the apps that has been signalled as "dangerous " ? I removed it from my phone and other devices about 6 weeks ago. (shock)
Oh I hear you, thats why I went and checked right away when i seen this thread :S I will certainly be watching when it updates in the future, I'm not shy at leaving reviews on the Playstore either!!
But the manifest lists all of them (it's also listed on the Google Pay page). It's great if they don't request everything straight away, but once you're prompted to enable something and then leave it on...
Yeah but this is "one of the best apps in the Google play market". Must be true if they said so! (annoyed)
FYI by somebody who uses this very tool in his trade almost daily These are great; please don't be put of by the negative reviews. Possibly a bit OTT for DIY use You do need to learn how to read them, and you need to appreciate that you will get false negatives but also you can learn how to spot these easily. Don't expect to slap it on the wall, and as the video would suggest, it to immediately show what is behind the wall; you have to carefully track the position you are going to drill and make note of what the tool is telling you Learn how to use it on a wall where you know what is behind it And above all, it's better than nothing (y)
I own one of these as a gift, its hit and miss as it regularly detects AC where I know for definite there are no wires in the wall! For studs its pretty good and metal work but I wouldn’t go out my way to recommend it.
Need something to detect wires and pipes but starting to think nothing exists! I bought a paxwq 410 on amazon which seems to have good reviews and despite giving it hours of trial and error, the only thing I can reliably detect in walls is studs under the metal detection (it finds the bolts, like you can use a magnet on the wall to find bolts...) I don’t mind paying a good amount because I fancy upping my diy skills (just bought a house) but I think the only reliable methods are to either poke holes in the drywall with an Allen key while the electric is off, or to strip the walls down entirely
Is that your dinner (zombie)
How many times!!! It's called a window not a mirror (cheeky)
How does this compare to torque pro?
Thanks for posting @urban8 and welcome to hotukdeals :) Looks a very good price
What for peeps that can't type in 4 letters into amazon then filter by customer review? Would u like silver service also?
Very limited just a basic engine code scanner but will read off basic engine codes and reset MIL light that's about it If you want to connect to cars module's or do more you need car specific software + interface , some more sophisticated scanners can cost £200 plus but still limited . I have can clip for Renault Multiscan for fiat Opcom for Vauxhall they are rip offs of main dealer software/hardware and Foxwell Nt 650 scanner . Nt 650 is useful can do forced regen , ABS ,Airbag plus few more but nothing like manufacture's software. Also the phone apps inc Torque only work as very basic code scanners. I first got Multiscan (Fiat ) to reset oil depreciated fault code garage could only read fault not reset even with expensive Snapon reader so was main dealer £89 to read FFS . Multiscan read reset only £34 to unlock software had to modify elm 327 though and no you can't reset oil on 1.3 jtd with switch pedal or button presses . OBD2 is only the interface car manufactures use different protocol to communicate with car probably to fleece you for expensive scan/reset Voted hot though as it good deal for this scanner
For this given product, this is the cheapest, hence the ‘deal’. If you have found an alternative with a great deal, feel free to upload and share it with the community... 👌🏼
The scores in my local music store will end up more well thumbed then the mags on the top shelf next door
On sheet is plenty (poo) (lol)
My (poo) music (popcorn)
Oh thanks for that (annoyed)
It was obviously a p!$$ take of all the people that comment on this site.
That makes you over 100 years old and mother in law is 200 years old. What do you eat to stay alive for so long. You shouldn't be working for 75 years you should've had your own business now.
I took onboard all those comments about these been crap so I’ve just ordered one of those x-ray scanners you get in the airport instead, bargain at only £225,000 each. Just need the trailer to carry it around with me now.
Haha, it’s when the buzzer goes off in areas where it shouldn’t! All those piercings! (lol) (lol)
Give them your ups tracking number and tell them to check the delivered date. If they still don't want to do anything ask for a manager. When I called up and asked to speak to a manager they quickly got things sorted for me.
I did install Windows and its key but before returning I partitioned the ssd so there's nothing on it. They arranged a collection and it got picked up by tnt on Friday. Now once they get it at their warehouse, the new replacement should start getting built.
I phoned today and they are refusing to send a replacement saying that the invoice date is past 30 days, But I received the product in hand from the delivery company on the 03/06/20. Anyone got any views on this?
That’s great to hear that they are doing something about it. Unfortunately I emailed them today so let’s see what they gonna say about it. Worse part Is recycled the box and it’s content. Did you install Windows and it’s key? Did you send it back or will do it once you receive the replacement?
I called today and they are going to replace it with another new one. Guess I'll have to wait another 2/3 weeks again :(
No you'd have to move to one of the vxxx models. I think the v370 may be the cheapest but more like £100. It would also use a ccd imager instead of the cheaper cis.
might want to see this too, it's meant to be good https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/paperscan-pro-free-due-to-covid-for-all-until-april-2021-3436480
Will this scan 35mm photo negatives
Nice piece of kit
Expired. £2.09 now.
£160 if you can
What's a bargain price for a v600?
When it's done its job, you can then sell it. There are always others in the same boat. You then have digitized photos done well and cheaply.
Not saying otherwise but... How many times will you be using it? Scanner sales have gone down and it will become increasingly difficult for them to sell esp at entry level. If you are digitising tons of photos are high res, then sure they make sense but for most people, a phone or the MFP will be more than enough. It's all about use cases. Once you will have digitised all your photos, it will be just another item on your desk that you won't need.
Standalone scanners might not make sense for you, but they obviously have a role to play for some folk, as evidenced here. I'll be buying one myself in a few months, have loads of shots to digitise.
The Google Scan app* works brilliantly and is free. Instructions here including how to add the shortcut to your home screen: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/3145835?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en Any paperwork we receive immediately gets scanned and automatically uploaded to google drive and the original either shredded/recycled or archived. Business receipts go straight into Receiptbank then over to Xero. We're practically paperless. I too have the ScanSnap S1300i for large documents but it very rarely gets used. (*There are many other Android and IoS alternatives - CamScanner, Microsoft Scane, Adobe scan, etc)
Will it scan multiple sheets onto the same scan? Or is it all indiviually processed?
Can't your phone do a similar job than this
Excellent price, especially if you want to put it in your laptop bag. Doesn't look like it has a document feeder, so if you want to scan multiple documents, then it could be a pain. I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i, very convenient but costs a lot more than this one.
Is it any good? It does not have a document feeder?
I quickly scanned the reviews, so won't be downloading.
Will take a picture, it wont convert it to a PDF... will save it as a jpeg to pdf which is pretty much useless!!!!!
I use Tiny Scanner, limited to just 3 documents on the free version but I just email to myself and delete so it's good enough for me.
Google drive or one drive will scan to pdf. Most will have that already
Microsoft's office lens is much better option to scan documents using mobile phone
The number of free months can be increased with some codes. Not allowed to post here due to site rules. Search eBay.
You can go to the 15 page plan after you have been on another plan, you just need to go on to the online chat and make the request.
Thanks, called them & they applied free instant ink. (y) (y) Happy days.
Anyone know the difference between this and HO 9010 as it looks the same
I got 4 months codes from eBay few months ago.just do a search on Hp instant ink
third-party... fake, copies. Generally thinner inks... some people rave that they survive longer on a machine that isn't used much as they don't dry out as quickly. Personally only use genuine after having an issue with copies a few years ago on an old HP machine. Pays your money and takes your changes
What's the alternative please?
You don't have to use those though... I like this printer a lot more than my old Epson.
Wow! That's expensive. That's really helpful. Thank you. (y)
FYI Canon, like Epson are expensive for replacement.
I mocked up my own version by using a Pringle tin and cutting some cardboard to allow a roll of negatives to be slid through. Then i just took a picture of the negative on a cloudy day pointing to the sky to get a good even light distribution. It worked pretty well
Washington. Sunderland new Lidl store
Which store was this please @john_spencer
Got this when it was £19.99. Its reasonable for the price I paid for it and the slides look ok on a PC screen. The typical file information on a slide scanned in standard mode is 2592 by 1680 pixels a resolution of 96 di and a bit depth of 24. A slide scanned in interpolated mode will double the number of horizontal and vertical pixels (e.g. 5184 by 3360). It does come with a manual multiple slide feeder but that only seems to work well with some thicker slides (with thinner slides it can sometimes feed two slides in at once) . Files can be saved as JPG or TIFF formats. It can also be used with negatives but I haven't tried this yet. I believe I got this slide scanner about 6 months ago so unless stores have had new stock since then it may only be available in a very limited amount of stores with remaining stock.
I think it will come with basic 'dust removal' software but a can of compressed air would be a good idea to squirt slides. Be warned, it takes ages! And the images, although more convenient are nowhere near as impressive as when projected when the light in them comes alive.
Why do people fall for this? Apps like this harvest and sell your data. Be careful especially with free games. Play store is terrible for this.
I am completely independent. (This comment was brought to you by our sponsors Kremlin Inc in conjunction with Huawei.)
Don’t install as this gives the app access to your WiFi
lol i remember the old days of useing peoples home wifi cos was no password by default lol
I know it was.
I just missed out
How did you manage that? the connoisseur
Expired, please tidy up after the deal expires :-)
Thanks so much! What are those ink packages? After the year I was thinking I may just buy another printer with 12 months insta ink if there are any other deals around (lol)
Welcome Lyndsay, it's a cracking bit of kit and as soon as the years worth of free ink is up, we are going over to either OEM refills or a CIS (continuess ink system) on the one in one of the church offices we got, unless HP say here is some more free instant ink for it of course!! When you fire it up, before printing anything, just connect it to the internet and go to settings and let it so a firmware update from HP, then restart it, then print a couple of test pages from the onboard menu <3
Cracking price in fairness. Put in an SSD and an extra 4GB of Ram and you have a fine machine.
5,400rpm HDD. Dog slow.
I was only curious... Fair enough
Returned the i5 version of this. Let it do all Windows updates and it was still far too sluggish. Nice build quality though (dunno if this one comes with the Matte IPS screen), possibly mine was a duff one.
Thanks read a review that was very critical of the screen it's for photo editing so the screen is very important but at this price point none seem to deliver l will have to up the budget.
The screen is great. I have never heard or read anything bad. It may not be bright enough for out door use. Most laptops are these days. Worth going in store to see it and compare if you're near a Currys. It's a big purchase after all. Offer ends today.
any experets out there whats the screen like ?
Any hp laptops with this similar spec?
Got a link for this?
