Actually Mr. Briant never owned Pioneer Computers. He took the client list wile working for Pioneer computers and opened a store a few streets away and called it pioneer computers plus. Typical slimeball tactics.

Pioneer Computers as and is owned by Stephen James whipple and is now located at 350 Se pioneer way. 360 672-8186
Also known as Whidbey island Learning Center and Computers. He has owned and operated Pioneer computers for over a decade..

Mr Whipple has left Oak Harbor Thankfully. His post about the employee taking his clients was way off base. He purchased Straight Solutions in 2004 at 350 Pioneer then in about 2007/2008 moved to 190 (Pioneer Computers). In 2008 he closed his revenue account and used other peoples licenses to run his store by each year conning someone to "buy" his store and get a license and then a few months later tossing them out. So he could use their license as an "umbrella" to hide under. He did this in 2008, 2009, 2010, (me in 2011) and then the owner of Avante in 2012. In each case he offered what was too good to pass up and after tossing them out worked with the premise that if anyone in Olympia checked it was run by someone else. He did the same when he opened the Learning center in 2013. If you doubt what Im saying just check Wash State Business License records and the dept of revenue records (account closed since 2008) and every address he used had additional licenses in other peoples names (who did not work there except for a few months) No one took his clients and he didn't fix computers but sold what every he could to who ever would pay him for a new one, and if you asked for a receipt he would have to charge sales tax, otherwise the sale was tax free. Thank god he is gone and good ridience. God help Florida now!

We were in need of either getting a computer fixed or disposing of our computer if it was unfixable. They looked at it, gave us their opinion and then took our old computer to dispose of it after the hard drive was taken out. They are honest and reliable.

For the dazed and confused people telling untruths.. The shop your posting about is out of buisness. The shop you left the post on doesnt have PEOPLE"S working its just 1 person in all. The ones your speaking about were 3 blocks down next to a bar and he went to jail for alot of the reasons you posted. Please correct yourselves and post accordingly.

As for the lady with the laptop that ruined her christmas. I remember you. You tryied to scam a student from the college with that laptop of yours. He got so scared he almost gave you his personal laptop Until I walked in and ran the serials on your laptop that was NOT brand new. Actualy it was 6 Years old IBM thinkpad with a 1.2 gig intel that had be soaked with water. I asked you to leave you did not I called the police. People have alot of nerve these days

Destroyed my laptop and would not make it right. Threatened to call police on me because I didn't want to pay for his frying my motherboard. Said they could not save my data from my hard drive because their equipment was broke! Does not provide any warranty and laughed at me when I asked about it. Told me to take them to court. All around bad experience. Save yourself the headache and steer clear of this place.

Pros: Absolutely Nothing

Cons: Poor quality, rude and threatening behavior, bad place!

Completely inadequate when it comes to computer repair. Poor knowledge, inept employees, horrible customer service. These folks will take your money without making the repairs they said they would. They ended up causing more damage to my computer and then told me it was not their problem, computers die eventually. Nice. They also have a stock of completely overpriced accessories that you can find way cheaper at Wal-Mart. I don't know how they manage to stay in business.
