I went into the store a week ago to have my Mac Book Pro fixed. It took less than 24 hours for all of issues to be resolved. Along with my 8 year old computer being fixed, the man I spoke to was very confident, kind and professional. He even updated my system which was kind of him. The price was reasonable considering I would not be charged if I was not satisfied. The other places in the city where charges over 100 to keep my computer for 3 to 5 days without a direct resolution that would not be refunded and could result in more fees. My girlfriend also got an IPhone screen fixed at this location months earlier.
Very helpful. Called first over the phone and he thought he could help. Dropped off my Sony DCR-TRV240 camcorder that was not turning on a Wednesday afternoon. He correctly diagnosed the problem when I told him I hadn't used it in months to years -- that it was likely a blown fuse on the board after a large current went through when I plugged it back in for the first time. He said he could have it done the next day. Sure enough, he called the next day, it was ready, working and at the price quoted. Would definitely go back. Of note we also discussed another finicky electronic item I'm having trouble with but we agreed that it was likely better to let it limp along and just buy a new one when it dies rather than have him fix it -- appreciate the honesty!
DO NOT TAKE YOUR PHONE HERE TO GET REPAIRED. I took my iPhone here a week ago, as it was smashed to smithereens. The whole ordeal cost me about $90 and tooK an hour, which wouldn't be a bad deal if the repairs lasted longer than a week. A few days after I got the screen fixed, the touch screen became unresponsive. I did not drop it; I did not smash it; the phone just stopped working altogether. I take it in to get looked at, and the guy working the desk told me that the warranty does not apply to the damage that the phone received (which was NONE AT ALL). So in the end, I dropped $90 and ended up with a phone that was MORE DYSFUNCTIONAL than the phone I brought in to them. I would have had a more productive experience if I set that $90 on fire, as it would have saved myself the hour it took for it to be repaired. I don't know why the issue occurred; perhaps they use cheap, inferior parts. Whatever the case may be, do yourself a favor: take your iPhone to the Apple store. Only then will your phone work for more than a week.
