Jeff is professional, meticulous, puntual, smart, pleasant and most importantly an excellent TV mounter! We presented him with a tricky task of mounting a 75" TV in a section of a built-in unit with very little clearance. Jeff was up for the challenge and despite a number of unexpected challenges (i.e., electrical outlet in exactly the wrong spot), Jeff completed the job easily and without frustration. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Jeff for your home theater needs. We plan to use him again to optimize our computer/home network as well. Money very well spent!!

Jeff was quick to respond and did a superb job not only in correcting the problem, but also in educating me on the cause of it and offered good tips along the way. Jeff has displayed a professional and friendly attitude and was swift in doing the work. No doubt Jeff is a professional in computer systems.

I recommend Pete very highly. I dropped a glass of water on my MacAir (keyboard) and needed to retrieve data and get the laptop working. After going to Apple store and them recommending services - the total bill was expected to be around $2500 or so far more than a new one- That said, my backups failed and thus needed mine fixed. I found Pete on thumbtack and he was terrifice. 1 Responsive to my inquiry. 2. Diagnosed the problem in layman's terms and explained course of action. 3. Provided price per hour and general estimate. 4. After selecting him (reviewed three others and none came close to Pete's knowledge and real person demeanor) he met me at a place of my choosing and general time, started work right away, forecast certain difficulties he would face - and they came true - then tackled more serious issues during the fix and managed them well all the while communicating with me what he was doing, why, how much time he would spend. In the end, he helped bypass the need to through Apple to fix the entire computer and for about less than 1/2 the cost it would have through them. Pete is very professional and personable, honest, gets the work done while all the while letting you know what's happening - I wish more people i knew did their job this way! Hire him - I would again no questions asked. Regards, Raja Ramachandran

The morning following logging off, my screen would not come up. Pete carefully and thoughtfully guided me through the remote procedure he was to use to restore my computer. He did that and removed malware to ensure the computer ran at optimum. He also made a folder for my desktop clutter, so start up is quicker. He showed me a few tricks I will be able to use in the future. Thanks Pete!

Pete was knowledgeable, serious and trustworthy, and really dug in on setting up my Apple network in a seamless and secure way - in a challenging wireless network topography. I'll bring him in again for more work on my computer.

Ari Laquidara is knowledgeable, quick, patient, and professional. He tried to set up my new computer, found that it had a hardware issue, confirmed that with Apple, and helped figure out next steps. He's good at explaining complexities without talking down to a person. I am quite pleased to find someone I can relate to and trust for ongoing Mac assistance. Tech Hero is an excellent descriptor!

Stephen M.

Verified review

Apple specialist Ari Laquidara was very amiable, competent, and conscientious. I feel like I have a new computer, with more than three times as much available capacity, even though clearing space was not the prime aim. He lived up to his billing as "Tech Hero" and I would unstintingly recommend him.

Will did a great job fixing my computer. It became a much bigger deal than his original estimate but he stood by it. He tried to explain the problem and solution but I am extremely technologically challenged and his efforts were futile. Nevertheless I felt secure he was doing the right thing. He is pleasant, honest, courteous, knowledgeable and I highly recommended him.

Will was nothing short of awesome, from his knowledge of his craft, to his willingness to share in this knowledge right down to the end result- which was a perfectly running computer- and fixed at a reasonable price. I would recommend Will to anyone !

Thanks so much for your help Ron. I needed my a.c.plug fixed on my computer. Ron stated it would take a week and that's what it took. My computer is now working great and he did it in less than half the price some other companies were trying to charge and he stuck to the quoted price. I will probably dig out my old laptop and see if he can fix that one as well.

David literally came to my rescue. I had just had a "no-show" followed by 7 unresolved calls with the Geek Squad. Stay away from them. They have NO idea what they are doing, or who is doing what! I needed data transferred from an older "dying" computer to a new one. There were a lot of upgrade needs and password confusions- all on my part. He was patient, knowledgeable, thorough and took care of every situation. I feel so very lucky to have encountered him. He stayed well beyond the agreed upon appointment to make sure that I was up and running. And his price was very reasonable. I have 5 Apple devices and often need support. I will only call him from now on and have recommended him to 2 other people already.

Ben was so very helpful. Patient in listening to my concerns but lightening fast/super smart in working with my computer and resolving the problem. He calls himself a "Computer Coach" which is much different and better than "Computer Repair"...because often it is not the case that the computer is is that someone (like me) may not know how to navigate the issues. He provided some good follow up to make sure that everything was working well for me. If you happen to book an appointment at his place, don't be put off by the shabby exterior of the house... and of course, he also will make an appointment to come see you at your home or place of business. I highly recommend Sustainable Computing.

I needed RAM installed on my Mac mini. Ben did this as well as troubleshooting for some minor problems I was having. He also explained some "whys" and "wherefores" regarding some quirks I was having with my machine. It was a very positive experience. He is a trustworthy and skilled person whom I would call upon again to work on my computer.

Total-Tech repaired a laptop damaged by spilled liquid. In the end the laptop itself was not salvageable. However, they did not give up as I was ready to do and saved the hard drive as an external hard drive and using and old laptop created an all new laptop, Service beyond the call and of extraordinary quality. Highly recommended and well worth the money. If I ever do something stupid to a laptop again, I would contact them.

I brought my Event ASP 8 Studio Monitor to Commbridge after it started making terrible crackling noises. The folks at Commbridge were very friendly and thorough, and they got it fixed up within a week, including ordering a chip that had gone busted. Pricing was very fair. I brought the speaker home and plugged it in, no more crackling and it sounds crystal clear!

I have been a software executive for over 30 years and my computing requirements are very high and my demands for IT services exact. But, I am lazy and don’t do what I should to keep up with my own requirements. I met Abraham at YUCATECH as a result of my own laziness, and a complete computer crash causing the loss of much valuable data critical to my consulting practice. The team at YUCATECH was able to restore this data and rebuild my Windows-based system quickly and for a reasonable price. I have been using them since, fixing all the normal system issues, and now use Abraham and YUCATECH as my personal IT department.
