I had the storage changed to a solid state drive, the machine cleared and programmes cloned to the new drive. The work was done very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I also wanted the CD drive replaced and was advised that an external drive would cost far less. I have used this trader before and recommended him to my family, who agree he is efficient and reasonable in cost.

I-pad would not receive emails. Google offered no service by phone. Computer wizard sorted the problem with a smile and without belittling my I.T knowledge, what a delight!!

I saw a monitor I was interested in on eBay and visited the showroom of Computer Wizard, Geraint served me and was very professional and courteous and was so taken in I bought a refurbished five year old mini Mac with the latest programme and updated software together with the monitor. I have never bought second hand IT and was nervous and needed assistance just two days later. Darren came to Chingford that same day from St Albans on a Friday night 7pm to assist and I could not be more impressed, I have not known anything quite like it and because of that would readily recommend anyone to forget any fears they may have but trust this truly Trusted Trader to look after you with your computing needs.

Laptop with floor tantrum

My laptop spontaneously hurled itself onto the floor displacing the battery then refused to start. Fortunately I don't store 'must have' data on the internal drives. I told the laptop that it wasn't getting my sympathy by this tantrum behaviour and it it didn't sort itself out it would go for a walk. Nothing worked even threats. My fall-back was to take laptop to Computer Wizard like all the other times I had broken something computery / wanted a new wiz-gizmo). With little fuss, a modest fee and great skill, laptop was returned less than 24hrs later to full working order. Thanks guys.

My work colleague recommended Geraint and I was extremely pleased to find out that he's also a Which? Trusted Trader. I was on the verge of buying a brand new desktop pc, he advised me not to write the old one off too soon. In fact I took in two that were failing to start and they managed to fix the newer of these and to my very great relief recovered the data from both. In the past I had been backing up everything, including important documents and cherished photos, to the computer itself....lesson learnt! So, many thanks to the Computer Wizard team for saving me a lot of money and years of memories. Moreover they're really nice guys and you immediately sense that they know what they're doing. Very Impressed.

Simply The Best!

My "Travel" computer failed while away and my main laptop failed 2 days after I returned home. Geraint confirmed one was very old and too costly to repair. The main laptop created a challenge as all my docs and stuff for the last 7 years as stored on it. I'd unwisely used the smaller computer for backup and should have used a Flash Pen. I will in future!! The computer needed a completely fresh install of Win 10. Only Computer Wizard could have retrieved everything important before the install of the latest Win 10. The job took two days and I know I did not pay for the true cost of all the man hours involved in retrieving my data. I would only ever go to Computer Wizard after first contact many years ago. Darren and Geraint are true Computer Wizards! Approachable, knowledgable, experienced and always reasonable with their costs. In short - Computer Wizard IS SIMPLY THE BEST!!

After trying in vain to repatriate a floating printer wheel I contacted Geraint. He told me to bring in the Epson printer, promptly repaired it on the spot and kept me entertained through the entire procedure. 30 mins later I was up and running again. I have used this company in the past and cannot recommend them highly enough.
