Can't recommend enough. The list of issues i had with my macbook, network and iphone were sorted in about an hour. Would have taken me many more hours to get everything sorted myself. Money very well spent to a great service provider. Thanks Brian.

Brian: Thanks Richard!
Awesome customer service, can't recommend highly enough! Brian upgraded my imac with a new ssd and made my machine much faster and more useable for years to come - he also saved me money by recommending i order the drive myself from overseas! Thanks again Brian!

Brian is a very nice young man, presentable, good listener and good with Mac or WINDOWS computers. I would have no hesitations recommending him to help you in your home or office on ANY type of computer or MOBILE device. He is polite, helpful and good at communicating. He helped me save alot of time setting up my new laptop and transferring all the data off my two old Windows computers to it (after Hvy/Normans failed). Brian also got my emails to sync properly across all my devices. Thankyou!!

We found Brian to be very helpful. He listened to our enquiry, then explained in simple terms what he was going to do to rectify our problems. He has a pleasant manner and arrived on time to our home. We would certainly use him again.

Brian: Thank you for your wonderful review. Hope to help you guys out in the future.
Brilliant! Sorted out a complex recovery from an old mac backup off a NAS Drive and converted it to PC readable format. Gave me back 8 years of my life: university lectures; board papers; tax information. Very very proficient and very articulate. Highly recommended.

I've worked with Brian over many years on a myriad of devices - he knows his stuff well and is great at breaking down everything into an easy to understand format. Since meeting Brian my IT skills have improved greatly, I now use a diverse range of applications that have made life easier as a whole. - Dee McOnie (English Teacher & Tutor)

Brian was great to work with sorting out some issues with "Photos" migration on my MacBook Air and a few other setup issues. Good listener and communicator with no "Geek Speek", just good clear methodical problem solving. Highly Recommended!!

I've been using Brian for many years - he is reliable and easily the most efficient computer guy I have worked with. He explains things in an easy to understand way & has completely changed the way I use technology. Kevin Clarke, CCA Architects

Great guy, great attitude and definitely value for money. Brian came over and was simultaneously sorting out 3 laptops and two phones in our household!! He got our teenage kids to better understand their devices, and helped me clarify my own IT needs. He's a good communicator and asks about how you're using your IT before implementing changes. I highly recommend him. Jane (Grey Lynn)

Brian: Thanks Jane - it was my pleasure to help :)
Brian is very professional and fixed absolutely everything we needed. He was very good explaining technical things to us. We are not experts on computers and Brian sorted all our issues. We recommend Brian and would use him again. Thank you, Brian!

Impressive talented! Helpful and first person to communicate with me on notes on separate laptops much better than the other old tech guys that I had that didn't direct communicate with me (I'm Deaf) He is someone worth to keep on if any trouble occurs with misunderstanding the Mac Apple etc. Much recommended. ;)

Brian has very professional understanding of Mac computers, ipads, iphones. He is able to intuit from customers' clumsy wording what lies behind the problems and explains the issues in direct, friendly accessible language. Most unusually, he can communicate readily with customers with profound communication difficulties. For this customer with a very profound hearing loss he keyed in his questions & explanations while she responded on her computer. And he left copies of the exchanges. Superb.

Dealing with Brian is a great experience; has a very engaging manner; is easy to talk with and manages to assess requirements very easily. His warm personality puts clients at ease and is able to work with people of any level of technical skills and confidence. Ideal for those who feel embarrassed by lack of knowledge; yet switches easily to serve experienced people. He is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable; refrains from technical jargon and offers great on-line support.

I highly endorse earlier praise of Brian’s personal service, clear communications and technical ability. Upgrading my G5 Leopard to an iMac 5K Yosemite with all new software and work methods for my 70 year-old brain was done superbly, along with all the iCloud family iPhone, iPads, printers & Apple TV sharing, and secure cleanout of my G5. He also recorded many helpful apps and hints for efficient use on the Mac as he explained them. Brian’s back-up service and tutorial advice also excels.

Brian: Thanks for the review Paul!
I have had the same experience as everyone else has had having Brian come to our home and "sort out" our computers/network and iCloud stuff. He was very helpful, friendly and a pleasure to have him in our home. Will definatley use his services again. He certainly knows his stuff and I highly recommend him.

Brian was so helpful, explained everything really clearly and was quick and approachable regarding follow-up information. Thanks so much, highly recommend!!!

Brian is simply the best. I endorse all the previous comments As a non IT 71yr old I found Brian to be an intuitive tutor who adapted his teaching to suit my learning style, now that's an excellent teacher. His knowledge is vast, he is polite, fun, patient, explained things clearly and quickly fixed problems that another company charged a small fortune to say were unable to be fixed He made it all so easy and his charges are very reasonable. Brian you are so welcome back.
