Central Computers has helped me on numerous occasions with my computer which seems to always have problems. Maybe I need a new computer. The reason I'm writing this particular review is because they really saved me last month when my computer wouldn't turn on. I dropped the system in and told them how important this was because I needed the computer for a work assignment. They fixed it and got it back to me quickly. I've generally had really good experiences with them, so they've pretty much become my place for any computer stuff.

I gave my Toshiba M45-S331 laptop to them to repair as my laptop was intermittently not powering up. The problem seemed to be the Toggle On/Off switch.

The store supposedly shipped the laptop to some repair center and fixed the problem through some power chip that they allegedly changed and tested it to be working.

The problem recurred within minutes of bringing the laptop home (surprisingly didnt happen in the store).

On returning the laptop, the repair center this time replaced the Toggle On/Off switch. The problem resurfaced in a day.

All through out , the laptop was turning on intermittently and when it turned on, it was working perfectly alright.

The third time however, it took them several days , and few calls to check the status. The store finally responded by saying that the Motherboard is not working.

This is very suspicious on their part. If the problem was fixed on two occasions, and on the third occasion, the laptop was pronounced dead.

The store decided to refund the 139/- i paid towards the cost of repairs, and nothing else.

Somehow, this is very suspicious and leaves a very bad taste about the repair center's ability to diagnose and fix problems. Seems that they used my laptop to experiment and when the experiment failed and resulted in damage to my motherboard, they decided to ship it back.

I wouldnt recommend the store to anyone for repairs

I've used this store a few times and found them to be friendly, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. The first time I wanted to buy a cheap system and they didn't try to sell me an expensive one, which I liked. The second time I had a problem with an external hard drive (which I hadn't even bought there!) and they went out of their way to help me. I would recommend this store to anybody, from a beginner buying a first system to an experienced user buying parts or upgrading.

Central Computer Systems Incorporated is a good place to go to if you are looking for parts or even a new computer. The store is somewhat big and they have a surplus of idems. It seems if you need something it will be there but not everything but you know what i mean. The place give you a somewhat comforable feelign when you are browsing around the store. The pricing however is somewhat expensive, in my opinion, but then again alot of places that repair and deal computers is expensive so i guess then again this is average pricing range.

I truly thought this little computer and accessories store would have lost the fight to the monstrous Fry's competitor years ago, Lo and behold, it is still holding strong on the little corner of Mowry and Newark. I have bought a few computer components at really good prices here, things like cables, ethernet cards, cd rom drives, keyboards, and speakers. But, the selection is far smaller than the mega-stores, so I would not buy the big ticket items here. The staff is pretty small, only two people seem to be available to assist.
