I highly recommend Bryce and would hire him again without hesitation. My laptop was running very slowly and in my own efforts to reformat and reinstall, I succeeded only in making it completely non-functional. Bryce and I agreed that perhaps a new (and larger) hard drive would be the best answer. Bryce ordered and installed the hard drive and then reinstalled Windows from the disk I gave him, and all of this he did well ahead of the time I thought it would take. Amazing and very commendable service. Throughout, Bryce has been great to work with, listening to my concerns and bringing to bear his considerable experience with computers. I would say that he did indeed go above and beyond to make sure I was happy. It has been a great experience and I highly recommend him. He is a very good guy to work with.
My laptop all of the sudden wouldn't boot windows. I had ALL of my pictures of my family on that computer and Brad was able to get all of my data off of my hard drive thank goodness even though my laptop is shot. He even drove my laptop to my work when he was done. Thanks Brad!
I was very happy with the response, speed and completeness of the service - which included retrieval of data from a crashed hard drive and a replacement. Court Dawkins at Rapport Connect was professional and polite. I would not hesitate to recommend this company, but suggest the user make expectations clear around warranties and replaced hardware.
I have been doing business with Richard for a few years. He and his wife are very personable, knowledgeable, and loving people! I will never do business with any other company, as long as they are around! I refer all my friends and family to them. Service is fast and efficient!
What to say about this company...everything was EXCELLENT! He came over twice just to get the job done, also sold me a hard drive. He's very nice and informative. HIRE HIM! :-).
Great service. I had was having hard drive issues, and he willingly took on the problem without complain. Affordable and efficient, and constantly in communication. I would definitely recommend to everyone.
Dan did a fantastic job restoring my lost files from a corrupted flash drive. He was extremely flexible and accommodating with the drop off and pick up. His price is reasonable and he is very professional. He saved some very important information that I thought was lost forever!
I've got nothing but positive reviews from my experience Davon! His customer service is also fantastic, very open about the process for fixing your computer (in my case hard drive), giving you an exact time frame, and calling you to check up. He had my hard drive fixed in minutes! I saved myself a ton of money not having to buy a brand new hard drive and I was so grateful for his honest professional opinion. Davon treated my computer and personal information with respect and care. I will definitely use him in the future and recommend him to friends!
I have a couple of laptop computers in my home. One is for my use, the other one is for my grandchildren to use. My grandkids love to download games, watch videos, and they do their school projects as well on their computer. With their downloads, they have inadvertently "downloaded some problems" as well. Unfortunately, I can't blame all of the issues on the kids, I have had my fair share as well! As much as I am on the computer, I know nothing about what to do when things go wrong! Trish has worked on my computers for years. I count on her expertise every time my computers have issues. She has taken care of virus's, retrieved information that I thought I had lost, downloaded my info onto an external hard drive for safe keeping, as well as help me with downloading antivirus programs to protect my computers in the future. I always get them back in good working order, in a timely manner, with the issues fixed.
Terry had my computer back in no time and the price was so fair. These other places want 60 bucks just to take a look. However my experience with Terry was very easy and straight forward. He told me everything he did to my computer and I even specifically asked what was wrong with it. Because for over a year I couldn't play certain games on my system. Well Terry, my computer is running perfect for me! I'm a heavy gamer and I haven't seen any problems out of it. I'm so appreciative I could find someone loyal ,close, and experienced with computer systems in my area. Terry did a great job and I know if I have further problems he would even try to help before even seeing it my computer.Also he gave me helpful websites to trust to download software and helpful tips for further troubleshooting if any comes in the near future. Phoenix PC Repair did a outstanding job and hopefully I wont need any repairs in the future but if i do i know where to go. Thanks again!!!
We have been searching for a good IT guy to fix our computers at our Auto Body Shop for some while now. Lucas was exactly who we were looking for. He was on time, and able to solve ALL of our needs for a reasonable price. The support he is able to give is great, it is like having our own personal IT guy! We would recommend his services to anyone who has trouble with their computers, he really knows what he is doing!
I had an issue with accessing my PC boot options menu. Dallas was able to help resolve the issue in a fairly timely manner. I would contact him again in the future for services if necessary.
Patrick' skills and knowledge of computers has come to my aid on multiple occasions. Patrick was able to troubleshoot and solved all problems quickly and efficiently. If I have any questions, I can always rely on his prompt, sincere and reliable answers. Patrick shows great pride in his work and you can see his passion in computers. Patrick treats each computer or laptop like his own and shows the utmost care.
Hard drive crashed a couple months ago so I decided to go online for some repair quotes. Phillip responded immediately with a great price, not only did he give a great quote, but also offered a great deal on a replacement drive. Phillip was able to replace and restore my previously backed up files in a few hours. Great Job!!!
Osaze was able to diagnose the problem and determine my laptop was not repairable. However, I forgot to ask him if the hard drive was replaceable.
I ordered a, windows 7 disc, HDD, and heatsink from Topline Tech. Everything arrived right on schedule, prices were low. I then had my computer worked on using Topline Tech as well. Someone came out and installed the heatsink and HDD at my home for a decently low hourly price, but due to an issue with my solid state drive he had to take the computer back to his place because of the lack of parts. I got it back the next afternoon perfectly cleaned, everything installed and working great. The man who came out was very professional about everything and was right on time for when he said he'd come out. He handled everything with care. There is nothing I can think of to improve the experience off the top of my head, everything was quick with little issue. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend and would use for future computer issues.
My hard drive crashed - twice! Both times David took the new HD I bought and installed it in my laptop and rebuilt the operating system. He is very professional, detail-oriented and thorough. I have recommended him to friends.
Arvin worked very hard to help me with my computer problems and did a lot of research from a company all the way in China. If you need help give Arvin a call
Miracle Worker While on vacation in Myrtle Beach, my computer started acting up. It kept telling me to enter BIOS settings and to reboot my computer. Not knowing anything about BIOS settings, I restarted my computer. The same BIOS screen popped up. I left the computer alone for a couple hours and it finally said Starting Windows, but was moving at a snails pace. I went to the library and did research on computer repair shops and settled on the highly recommended Just Ask Hal. I took the computer to him and Hal himself thought my hard drive was inoperable. I shared that the computer was only a year and a half old and I was surprised that a hard drive would go out so quickly. The computer had been built from components bought from TigerDirect in May of 2013 by a fellow who was no longer available. The computer had performed flawlessly except for an LG disk drive that had gone out a month before my vacation. My son replaced it with an ASUS disk drive as I am not computer savvy. One of Hals seven technicians, Nelson, called two days later to confirm that the hard drive was bad and that I had likely lost all my data. I was crushed as I had been foolish and not backed-up my data for some time. Nelson said hed use another program and let it run all night to see if anything could be done. The next day, the results were that NO data was recoverable. I was crushed. I asked Hal what brand the hard drive was because I didnt want another one of that brand. He said they didnt recommend Western Digital, but when he opened the computer, he said it was a Seagate, the best in the business. I asked what might cause the best in the business to go bad and he thought it might be the size - it was a 2 terabyte. Hal asked if I wanted to have a new hard drive installed, but I was so distraught over losing my data, I politely declined. Hals fee for diagnosing and attempting to recover the data was only $30, very reasonable, but I had lost so many family photos and document files that I was thunderstruck! Later, when I got home to Lancaster, Ohio and had access to another computer, I started searching for more information on data recovery. I saw that many companies used clean rooms to recover data and got the impression that data recovery was a time-consuming, expensive and equipment-intensive process. I would rather use someone local, but I feared that my hard drive needed all the help it could get. Local shops, like the one in Myrtle Beach, might not be so equipped. I called Seagate and asked their fees. It was $49 initially with my shipping the hard drive to them. If they found sufficient data, the charge would be $600. Wow! I also filed two requests for online quotes from Kroll Ontrack and Columbus Data Recovery. Kroll Ontrack, the nations largest data recovery company, called soon thereafter. Their initial fee was $69 with the drive needing to be shipped to Minneapolis. Kroll provides you with a list of the files recovered (which was nice) but the final cost would be between $700 and $1300 depending on the amount of data. I was overwhelmed! I received no response from nearby Columbus Data Recovery. I really didnt want to ship my hard drive anywhere and to pay such a high price, but I was concerned about local shops having the equipment and know-how to recover any data from my dead hard drive. I called a gentleman in Canal Winchester, The Geek Guy, and he was honest and helpful, but I think he indicated that he sent out hard drives to data recovery places (maybe like Seagate and Kroll) and he estimated that data recovery might cost about $1000. I called the only local shop, other than Best Buys Geek Squad, that I could find. A friend had recommended that I not use Best Buy service even though I had bought many good products from them. I called Mobile Geek Ohio and the owner, Shane Eppley, came to my house (yes, a house call), reviewed the problem and said he would be willing to try to recover the data. I was hopeful, but expected the worst. The following day, Shane called and asked if I was sitting down. I sat down and said yes. He then told me that he had recovered EVERYTHING! I cheered! It was like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders! He came over (another house call), showed me all the files. I could finally breathe a sigh of relief. Thank you, Shane. Thank you! And the cost? $60 for data recovery! Are you kidding? Heres a tip! Thank you so much, Shane. He then installed a new hard drive for a modest price and I am back up-and-running! You will have all my computer business from now on, Shane. So much appreciated! I sincerely recommend Mobile Geek Ohio. He worked a miracle for me.
PAUL WAS A DELIGHT. HE FIXED MY LAPTOP THAT WAS OVERHEATING IN JUST A SHORT TIME. HIS PRICES ARE LOW BUT HIS SKILL LEVEL IS HIGH. I TOLD HIM HE WAS NOT CHARGING ENOUGH. IF I NEED A COMPUTER TECH AGAIN, I WILL NOT HESITATE TO CALL PAUL.
Susan W., Reynoldsburg, Oh "Great Shop" I'd like to consider myself tech-savvy. People are always calling on me to do maintenance and repair their computers. So I found it funny when my personal computer began running real slow and after hours of trying to establish what is wrong, I still had no clue. So I decided to get some help and found these guys online. I took it to them and they got my computer running faster than I had it running! A few cheap upgrades here and there and a bunch of system tweaks got everything running super smooth. This all happened within a week. I recommend this shop to everyone. When I have no clue when friends and family have me check out a computer, I tell them to call The Computer Wiz
