This place is an absolute rip off. I have tried business with them on three occasions and each time it is worse. They are selling obsolete junk at a high premium that they run around and buy from people on CL and locals and buying in bulk on pallet toss buy outs, clean it up and resell for 2,3,4 times the price that they paid for it. with bad ram sticks, hard drives with sector failures, to monitors with burnout spots. They are not a respectable business, and their ETHICS are highly suspect. Selling ink refills that bleed out and destroy a printer and then tell you  its not thier problem, selling laptops with non OEM hardware and telling you its refurb'd and covered under warranty. If you deal with this guy, get EVERYTHING in writing and DO NOT pay cash, used a card so you can be protected. This is the same guy selling crap at saturdays market flea market. Buyers Beware! Take the time to research ANYTHING this guy sells and price check it, and or take someone with PC knowledge along to save you time and money!

What Really Happens

AUTHOR: pblinds - ()

Since the customer didn't mention anything in particular and talked about random things, I presume he is the competition since he had a bad experience why did he keep coming back and how many people know what a computer sector is or that some computer stores buy computers by the pallet.

Well sell laptops and desktops in all price catagories, we would like to sell only $900 computers, but the market doesnt allow it, so we sell 6 year computers that sell for around $99 to $499 for a new computer, We run diagnostics and replace any parts that failed with OEM or compatible. Our prices are based on Ebays prices, very competitive, ALL computers carry a WARRANTY, ALL hard drives, memory, lcd screens carry a WARRANTY, if the customer had a problem he didn't bring it to our attention with in the warranty terms.

Our ink refill business is big, we offer the first refill FREE, just so the customer can see if a refill will work in their printer, some do, some don't, but it cost nothing to find out, we clean the nozzle and simply fill the reservoir and make sure the ink travels from the reservoir to the nozzle, we don't touch the computer chip or contacts, in the 3 years of doing refills we have had only 2 customers that had leakage, the cartridges were replaced.

We do not sell at Saturday Market or any other flea market, we do not buy bulk computers from the state surplus or recyclers, ALL our computers are purchased from customers who sell them to us or trade them in to us or we buy from electronic distributers. The seller may have us mixed up with someone else.

We advertise on Craigslist like all computer stores do, We also advertise on Facebook, is this a bad thing? we advertise to buy and sell all electronics, not just computers, we currently sell cellphones, camera's, GPS's, audio systems, mp3 player and much more, they all carry a WARRANTY. Is there going to be problems? of course, we are dealing with electronics they have a mind of there own, but we try our best to offer trouble free products.

We are a family owned and ran computer store, we opened in 2004 and since then our customer based has grown making us the largest computer store on the hwy. 230 corridor.
