PIECE OF MIND – The service we have received at The Computer Guy is awesome. They service our entire network of 11 computers and they really know there way around them.
In the past we have had other companies come out for some service and they never seemed to get it right the first time. True story, one Friday (pay day) our computer that does payroll locked up, we took it over to Tony and the guys and they had it repaired that day in time to make payroll. I do not know what I would due with out them. They also manage our web site and since then we have gone from page 63 to page 1. I sleep better knowing that I do not have to worry if a computer goes down. Everone in the shop knows to call The Computer Guy if any thing ever happens. Couldn't be any happier
Can One be Better than a "Man of His Word"? – What a warm welcome. The sweet gal that met me at the counter smiled like she really was glad to see me. Wade popped over to give me a quick estimate of price and date to repair my computer then he was back working on his task at hand (maybe your computer). His quote seemed good so I left it there. He called me on the estimated due day and I pick up my computer. His price quote was off however...$150 in MY favor. When does that happen?
Thank you "Computer Guy"
These "Guys" ROCK! – Patient. Professional. Expediently fixed both computers; one is as old as dirt, the other two years old. ALL workers very knowledgeable... and did I mention they are very "patient"? Great bunch at this store, they even have adorable mascots that greet you with a fast wag. All I can say is thank God there's a reliable place in Reno that takes on problems worse than over-throwing a small government. I hear they even make house calls - whoa!! AND they follow up with a phone call when they say they will - whoa again!
You can't go wrong with The Computer Guy, Very sincerely, a happy customer, Vicki Railton
Bravo for small business!!! – A few words should say it all; friendly, competent, fair courteous and honest. Congratulations. David beats Golieth, hands down.
Great Service! – These guys rock! Wyatt took my broken laptop in on Friday and one week later it is back from the dead! My screen was cracked and the hard drive was full of viruses. I asked if it was worth fixing and he said he would check and see if the screen wasn't too expensive and call me back. Best Buys said it was going to cost more than it was worth and they tried to sell me a new one.
They were going to give me 45.00 for mine! I told them no and then took it to the Computer guys. Anyway Wyatt called with the price and I told him go. Then four or five days later he called to let me know it was in. Now the laptop works faster, and the monitor is clearer than before. I don't think I have ever been happier! You need to take your laptop here to get it fixed!!! These guys know what they are doing!
you will pay more than you expect! – I had a virus on my 6 month old computer, so i started looking for a place to take it. I saw a number of cheap offers on craigslist from people doing free lance work, but decided to pay a little more and take it to an actual shop. I was roped in by the computer guy's $59 special. They also had a Jesus fish on their front door, and on their website. Being a Christian, I figured these guys were as well, and I would not be ripped off by them. Boy was I wrong. Once I was in the store, he informed me it would be $79. Not a big difference, and I was all ready there so I agreed, and told them I was rather poor and absolutely could not afford more. He assured me that it would be no more than $79, and only on extreme circumstances would it require more money, and with my computer only being 6 months old, it would be fine. A few hours later however, i get a call from them informing me that it would require two hours of work, and the cost would now be $158! I said I could not afford that, but they told me my only options were to come and get the computer, still infected, and pay them 50 bucks, or I would have to pay the $158. With my hands tied, I had little option, but to pony up the full $158. They straight up ripped me off! I will never go here again, and I highly reccommend everyone else go to some other place as well. And as if to pour salt on my wound, when I got home I found a "computer guy" sticker stuck on my computer, and when I removed it, it left a mark. Thanks for nothing computer guy!
In some cases, viruses are more difficult to remove like "Thinkpoint". We have to format the computer, reinstall Windows, install drivers and then replace all of your data where it belongs. This process can take several hours, but we only charge for two. In your case, the virus was one of these trojans and could not be removed with the current technology and required the format/reinstall. Geek Squad charges 199.99. Call me and we can discuss this as two Christians who love the same Jesus!
Computer Guy – I may be wrong but the only person who would write a review that couldn't be farther from the truth, could only be a under qualified ex employee or an extremely malfunctioning human being. We all know one of those. I travel all over the Country and work with 100's of small to very large companies. It is an honor to have a business right here in Reno, NV that compares to the best our Country has to offer. Tony his Wife and their staff have the most professional, Honest and Kind people a customer should except. They have for eight years fixed every problem my systems have had. They do the work in a timely and reasonably priced manner. Never have I felt they have over charged or service under-performed. You can feel safe if you work with this fine Company. Keep up the great work. You will always get my recommendations.
hmmmm – This guy will lie, cheat & steal. Please don't take your computer or anything else for that matter to the so called "ComputerGuy". Trust me you don't want this guy touching your pc.
This is obviously a competitor trying to discredit us! We never treat customers that way. That's why we have been in business for 16 years! CitySearch should take this down for the obscenity in the graphic.
Fixed! – I have a laptop that had a video problem. I was told by HP that the laptop would have to be returned to HP for repair at my expense 324.00!!! I called TCG and they told me 158.00 and it could be done and back to me in a week! I brought my laptop in...three days later a tech called and said they were doing a video repair...the next day, done!
158.00 as they said and a very professional lady took my payment and informed me of the process that was done.
You should have heard what Best Buy was going to charge!!! These guys rock!!! Thanks computer guys ... and girl!
Fast Friendly Service! – Jennifer and Tony love people and try really hard to make people happy. We have been in business for about 16 years and attribute our success to helping others, giving personal attention to each person and calling customers to make sure their service was good and their overall experience here was a good one. We look forward to meeting you!!!
