  • Yesterday I got my laptop back from you guys after having a virus removed and I just wanted to leave a comment saying that I couldn't be happier in terms of the service I received. The member of staff I dealt with explained/demonstrated the problems in a way that I could understand without being patronising and after the job was done talked me through any changes. The job was done quickly and the price was much cheaper (more than £30 so) than some other shops I'd looked at, I also thought it was a nice touch that you cleaned up my screen and keyboard. In short I will be recommending you to anyone I know whose in need of a repair job, thanks again!

  • Just to prove how common and indiscriminate it is, I've just received a call from an Indian sounding call centre reportedly, the "Windows Testing Centre" to tell me that I have issues with my computer and they can help fix it. Even after I told them who we were and was quite clear that we are a PC REPAIR shop and know of this scam and if they were sure they should be calling me, they still persisted!! Please warn any friends and family especially the elderly not to fall prey to the scam artists that are out to exploit the naive or vulnerable. No one from Microsoft or Windows will ever be calling you directly to tell you that your computers have issues & offer to remove it for money. If anyone does try, suggest a call to the Police and see how long they stay on the phone.

  • After what seems like an age and about 100 screws - or close enough, One Macbook Pro Keyboard and backlight changed. :-)
