    Exclamation Why we don't call Geek Squad - Ever!

    This is a first hand account of what my friend found when he decided to help out some former Geek Squad customers. Take heed, my friends...

    Epic Geek Squad FAIL!: http://www.kevitivity.com/geeksquad.html




    I would suggest you all (if you deem it necessary) forward this link to all your computer using friends.

    Oh crap...I have bought items at that Best Buy in Rancho...but have never used the Geek Squad there...wow. I bought an HP laptop at Best Buy but never again. They bog down those computers with so many "advertisements" it makes them very slow.

    the geek squad sucks. I know more than they do......I would never sue them. My daughter bought a computer from best buy and called them for something. After an hour of not being helpful she called me. I went over and had it working in 5 minutes...yeah...they suck.

    When it comes to anything digital from Best Buy all I've gotten are headaches, and therefore don't do business with them. That said, with their crummy customer service I'm not suprised their tech service is horrible as well.

    They recovered everything from my dead laptop a few months back for 100 dollars after the 2 IT guys at my work were unable to help so I am pretty grateful to them!

    Its funny because I have heard a lot of good things about them!

    You're gonna hear both good and bad reviews. That's how it is with everything.

    Geek Squad is the reason I was out a computer for a month... They told me to get a new power pack and the Targus one messed up the computer, then when I got another power pack (actually blamed Targus, got one free from them, then had another issue, so... had to get a 3rd), it stopped the whole computer. Turned out Best Buy told me the wrong advice and fried something in the computer.

    A family member had a bad time with the "genius bar" at the Apple store.

    It appears Apple doesn't hire all geniuses. Who knew?

    Re: Why we don't call Geek Squad - Ever!

    Thank goodness the IT guys at my moms office are geniuses. I've had many computer problems and they can always help out! Either that or I call Dell and even though I have to wait on the phone forever, at least I can do it myself and its free.
