I read some of the negative reviews here and can't help but think they're talking about a different company (although I do like the person who didn't get his "produck").

I had a special thing I needed and the woman who NOW owns the company could not have been more obliging and helpful. I believe she said she just took over the company. She jumped through way more hoops than someone selling me a computer at that price should.

One other thing to future readers: I am one of only a few people that will take the time to write a positive review when I've had a good experience. Most online reviews seem to be gripes when things don't turn out right. The result is a highly skewed view of a company as most satisfied customers will return, but not take the time I am to write this. However, Pam at Surplus Computers did so much for me, I felt an obligation to take the time to write this.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am NOT in any way affiliated with them, or have any relatives or friends connected with them. I am a computer geek programmer and web developer in L.A. -- which is about 500 miles from Santa Clara.

PS: Go on... beat their prices!

Purchased a Symbol PPT 2700 barcode scanner/PDA from this seller on Ebay. I was in the process of moving into my new house and since the scanner/PDA did not have a charging cable included, had to order a cable before I could test it. I finally received the power cable and tested the unit. The scanner, which was the feature I purchased the unit for, does not emit a laser light. The PDA itself is wonky and does not work correctly. I am not able to get back to a main (home?) screen because there is no way to close a subset screen. I requested a simple exchange for the same unit in working order and the management told me that because 60 days had passed, they would not make good on their merchandise. So now I own a PDA that doesn't do anything/a scanner that does not scan, and a separately-purchased power supply cradle and cord ($26.95 plus shipping and tax) that is useless to me. I am now out close to $100 and will never buy another item from this seller.

I would actually give them NO STARS, but the website won't allow anything less than one star. Definitely a SUB-ONE STAR company!!!

I have tested the waters with surpluscomputers.com, and have had great results. I now recommend them to my clients, friends and family. They also have great results.

Unusual products, very good pricing, never had issue 1.

This is the worst online business I have ever delt with. After several attempts at contact regarding an order placed with them I still have never heard from a sole in the business. Emails, phone calls, etc. went unanswered. Good thing my account wasn't billed, but despite that fact it was definitely worth my time to file a complaint with the California Depatrment of Revenue and the Better Business Bureau. This place needs to be shut down!

Surplus Computers has much much more than computer/electronic components. They carry a wide range of items all at super prices. They have a weekly email letter that highlights their best buys.

PROS: good selection, great prices
CONS:

As this section is to review computer stores, I don't think purchasing a computer from this place is a good idea. This place is like a brick and mortar eBay store. Generally they have everything you can think of that is made in china. There are good computer accessories here as well. But the few times I've gone here, I didn't purchase anything. There's something about comptuers and expensive equiptment sitting next to items I would only expect to find at a dollar store.

This is a great place for deals. I bought my harddrive enclosure, USB 2.0 Card and CD ROM drive from here...it was the cheapest deal i could get. The only drawback of this place is that u can't return stuff...they only exchange stuff. If u have a problem with any of the parts they will test it and give u another piece of the same product.

Don't let the appears (inside and outside) of this place alter your impression of this little store. If you can't find something at fry's or best buys, you might have a good chance of finding it here. The prices are very reasonable and they carry stuff from computer hardware, monitors, mp3 players, TVs, gadgets, etc. For a little store, they carry more than you would imagine, and i was also surprise to see golf clubs there also!!! Very recommended

This is a nice place if you want to go junk yard hunting for old computer parts. They has a lot of old computer parts as good price. They also has a lot of tool as cheap price, of course, cheap quality too. Not everything there are cheap thou, so if you don't know the price, you might get taken. Also, all sales are final, so you won't be able to return.

PROS: cheap stuffs
CONS: no return

I like going to this place because they offer a variety of computer parts. From old cpus, to motherboards, video cards, monitors, hard drives, etc. They also carry cd players, mp3 players, and a variety of other tech gadgets. Some of their stuff are refurbished, but some are new also. I've went here numerous times, and have bought something on each of those occasions. very satified, only problem is that their appearance doesn't show it.

This place is one of the best places out there to buy old computer components and even some of their newer computer components/hardware. They are like a thrift store in a way for the very techy people, but most of their stuff are brand new, but just refurbished. I have bought numerous stuff from them at very good prices and they all seem to work fine.

I bought two drives from them. When they arrived, one was defective. I wanted to get a replacement, but this company is extremely hard to communicate with. There's no phone support and they won't answer emails. If you don't buy from
