Initially I needed Mark to clean up my computer as it was very slow. Although I can use application software I am not technical. Mark very patiently worked through a series of diagnostics, discovered one problem, fixed it and then went on to uncover more issues. Who knew that I had 3 anti-virus programs installed of which they were conflicting and nothing was getting done. That in of itself was worth getting taken care of. My system was so messed up it took several scans with 3 different programs to fix everything. And then there was the overnight updating that took hours and hours. My system was such a mess I avoided using the computer adding to the problems because of inactivity and a greater need for scanning/clean up. Before Mark and I set up an appointment I told him that I wanted to establish a "relationship" with an individual who would be there to assist me with routine maintenance and whatever issues might arrive. Not only is Mark very knowledgeable and competent with computer issues he also offers insight into cable/internet. If I wanted someone who just looked up solutions on the internet I would have gone to another retail organization. I get enough misinformation and ongoing problems with my cable provider and I didn't want to take a chance with a computer repair person. The trust factor is important as well and I felt from the moment Mark walked in the door I could trust him. Integrity is as important as ability and when someone is working with your computer involving privacy and confidentiality, you need to be assured of confidentiality and competence. I appreciated that Mark came out himself and did the assessment and completed the job which is unlike many organizations. I didn't want a "franchise" and as stated not a retailer. It shows "ownership" and "commitment" and someone who stands by their work and not just a corporate person or behind a franchise Although I felt that he might have come on a little strong, it would appear that if I continued to "research" various options I would end up doing nothing. For that reason I appreciated Mark's "enthusiasm" and wouldn't be completing this review albeit as delayed as it is. Ordinarily I wouldn't just impulsively contract with a service, but after reading reviews from different sources and checking references before the appointment, I felt comfortable with my decision. I would recommend Mark at M & H GlobalTech Solutions and would be pleased to discuss personally.

My niece's computer would not boot and we needed a same day backup of her hard drive. Mark came to our rescue, even picking up an external hard drive on his way over. Owning my own computer repair company in Colorado I was impressed with his ability to quickly resolve the issue. He has made another happy customer. I highly recommend Mark with M & H!

Had a very good experience with Mark. He was able to diagnose the problem with my computer relatively quick and came up wit several options to make the repair. The computer is better than new based on his recommendations and repairs. I will use him again.

My computer wouldn't boot and everything I tried for 2 weeks failed. Christopher sat down at my desk and had it up and running in less than an hour. His price is very reasonable and he throws in a lot of good advice for free. I've found my new computer repair man and highly recommend him.

We recently moved into a new office and had to hook up our computer stuff immediately, so that left us with a jungle of computer cords all over the floor, and a bunch of other tech stuff that was out of place. Norh came in around Christmas time, and made everything look PERFECT! All our cords and wires are clean & hidden, and everything is running smooth as can be. We highly recommend Norh & Smalltyme Electric -- best of all, the price is right!

The job was difficult for us, but very easy for Norh Robinson. He scheduled a time and was able to resolve the repair after explaining different solutions to us. The work was completed at once in a very professional manner. We would recommend Norh very highly and would hire him again.

Ok so where do I begin. I have never written a review for any service before but I had to for Barry because I don't know anyone who can hold a candle to this guy. I saw all of his 5-star reviews so I had to give him a shot. Barry is the most genuine and professional people you will ever met/talk to. Just from talking to him I knew he was the man for the job. He has years and years of experience and you can tell from his work. All my files got deleted off of my external hard drive and I thought they were gone forever, but here comes Barry. He gave me a very fair quote to recover all my data unlike most companies who wanted hundreds for what Barry made look like a cake walk. The SAME exact day I called him he was able to squeeze me in. Considering he runs his company on his spare time after working a full-time job, he gave me more than enough attention while repairing me hard drive. Since he was at work at the time I dropped off my hard drive off at his house he had to initiative to call me just to make sure I took it to the right place--he even seemed to care way more than I did! That being said every time he touched my hard drive, whether it was to tell me he was starting the data recovery or to tell me he was testing a file. Basically every time he touched my hard drive he would call or text me to see whether if was okay for him to proceed...what a guy. Keep in mind he does this after working full-time. That being said he started my data transfer the same day I dropped it off and finished the very next day! I was in complete shock when he called me to tell me it was done in less than 24 hours. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT pass up on Barry if you need any type of phone or computer repair. He's in a league of his own when it comes to computer repairs and customer service.

My start button on Windows 10 stopped working. Checked on Thumbtack for computer repair. One I talked with was really off the wall! I contacted Rick Hogan, and he came to the house because I could not pick up the tower due to illness. He found a corrupted file and thought that was it. When I tried it the next day, it worked, then it didn't. On & off like that. Called Rick and he decided to backup files and reinstall Windows 10. So far it's doing great. I would recommend him to anyone.

James bent over backward in his assistance with my Macbook pro laptop which stopped working due to a liquid spill on the keyboard. He kept me informed on a regular basis of what he was finding and the progress of the repair. He even picked up a blue tooth keyboard for me as well as a mouse. This repair, I was told from everyone else, could not be fixed. James was very thorough and meticulous, and easy to work with and shared his insights freely that were accurate. (In my case, he detected my impatience and gently told me to take a chill pill. -)) James truly loves his work and his expertise was spot on. My logic board was not damaged and all my data was intact. It is so wonderful to work with professionals such as this. Thank you James, for saving my life!

As a resident in the Chicago southside area, I was sure to find a computer repair shop to repair my keyboard for a fair price. I walked into a lot of computer stores, and some of their prices were off the charts! One lady even told me that in order to even look at my computer, there was a $50 down payment. I thought this was absurd. So, I looked on Google, and found Computer Prodigies. I sent a message through Thumbtack and Justin sent a message the very next day. I explained that I was returning to school and that I needed my computer by Saturday, which was in a couple of days. He gave me estimates and told me EXACTLY what I needed to hear. Other shops told me that I would have to replace the entire keyboard, just the reason being a laptop. Justin, however, reached out and told me that he could possibly repair them separately. A sign of relief. So, I decided to use his services. Although, he did have to order me a brand new keyboard,I would have to say, I am very well pleased with his work. Not only did he fix my keyboard, the job was done within 3 days. He made sure to call me if there was any problems or updates, when my laptop was ready for pickup, and if he could do anything else. I must say, this is by far the best decision I've made with going with an independent company. He gave me an overview on what all he did and everything. He's very professional and all about business at hand. He's friendly and has the most positive attitude I've come in contact with. I left his shop with a fixed computer and a some of his business cards. lol. I'll be sure to refer and recommend his services to ANYONE who's having ANY problems with their computer. He even works on iPhones and iPads. He's definitely worth the time and money! Great job, Justin!

Justin is great, friendly, patient with explanations and just a really good person. If I have a general question, I am comfortable calling him and getting a response. If you have a problem with your computer, please call them, you will not be disappointed.

This letter is about Antoine Finley. I have asked him on several occasions to look at my computer and also my daughters. Antoine recognized immediately the technical issues we were having and resolved the technical issues immediately. He seems to master new technology and very proficient in a range of computer systems, tools etc. Mr. Finley is the type of person that can be trusted to carry out his technology responsibility without being supervised. He has the experience, knowledge, and leadership to perform any task concerning computers or any technology that is brought to his attention. Technology is becoming a major engine of economic growth in the US. In closing, in my opinion he is the best in the technology industry. A Satisfied Customer!

Amazing, my screen on my phone was cracked and he asked what color screen I wanted. I had no idea you can get a different color screen other than black and white! And I paid less than what I paid when I got it fixed at the Apple Store. He also came to me and got the job done at a reasonable time. I would differently recommend him!
