Today John diverted a serious problem with my antivirus, that had in turn, made monkey business with my emails. I have known John for some time he is very caring to his clients and is very trustworthy and thorough and cares about his business. Give him a call he may live in Te Anau, thats never been a problem.

John: Thanks Michelle. Always nice to receive feedback like this. I appreciate it.
i had a ,problem with my laptop, namely it was hacked and was 'locked up '. John ran numerous anti virus programmes totry and fix my pc, finally coming down to a complete software rebuild including the operating system ( was windows 10). 1 decided to have John install linux manjaro instesd of windows-what a difference !! - simple,user friendly, no malware/virus infections,AND unlike windows, fast updates! thank you John,and Ii'd reccomend an upgrade to linux over Windows.

John: Always pleased to help you Martin. Thanks for your reference.
just got our laptop back after john put in a new ssd after our old harddrive failed.he was able to save everything for us which was great but the best thing about dealing with this very honest bloke is that when you ring his free pone business number- he answers!not a recording giving you 5 options to be put on hold!he promises backup advice free of charge and when he is only a call away-thats priceless.

I came to John with some problems in my computer that no one could repair. John delivered. My computer ended up being faster than before and all information was recovered. I would say the service that John provided as being the best. I would recommend John if you are having any problems with your computer. Thank you John.

My Laptop was very slow and took a long time to load up so that you could start to use it. they replaced the 500Gb drive with 500Gb SSD and now its open n ready in seconds instead of minutes. everything still there!!! great service n prompt return.

John: Pat, Sorry this reply is late. Important note, the SSD I supplied to you is being refunded by our wholesale supplier so I can give you a free replacement, including installation, of another brand SSD with a 3-year warranty. Phone or email me for further info.
Our desktop all in one was running very slow. John suggested it was the hard drive and that it would improve with a solid state drive instead, did it what!!! So much better and quicker now. John came after business hours so it would not disrupt our daily work, he was on time and very quick - as quick as the process would allow him of course - we recommend him!

John: Alistair, thanks for your review. Hope to be of service to you again.
John has always been very helpful with any computer issues we've had. He has always been willing to travel & very prompt. Now even better that he can offer remote assistance giving even quicker response & less down time. We are very happy with the work that John has done for us & find his rates are very fair & reasonable. He will always try to reduce our costs wherever possible. We are also very impressed that John always follows up on any job he does to ensure that we are completely satisfied.
