    They're not worth the price they charge. You can get a better deal out of an independent company.

    My husband is a techie, so when I need computer help, I ask him. Also he has a side business of fixing computers... and he's had to fix a number of things the Geek Squad screwed up.

    I'm geeky enough to build and maintain my own systems. So the "Geek Squad" can burn in...

    They are rip off artists, they charge way more than what there work is worth. People are impatient so they pay there unreasonable charges, there are lots of cheaper solutions and better quality services available.

    I've used them twice. Love the Beetle and the cool 1950's style braniac attire. Professional. Good work.

    Fools and their money are soon parted. 90% of what people pay Geek Squad to do can be done themselves with a little bit of effort and Google for free.

    There's no excuse for being "dumb with computers" in 2012.

    I always buy the extended warranty and accidental damage protection, so I have the manufacturer repair or replace my pc's for free.

    90% of the time, those "protection plans" are a ripoff.

    No I do my own work, I also would not recommend them. They are overpriced and whether you get a good tech or not is a hit or miss, some of their techs know their stuff, others barely know which end of a pc is up.

    I recommend usually local owned and operated tech services, they are usually cheaper and also usually more consistent in their work and training.

    Well sort of yes and no a friend of my son's works for BB on their Geek Squad and he does a little moonlighting his rates a great LOL. I can handle the easy stuff myself software install stuff and hooks up but if I have to crack a case I'm out of there looking for help. God kind of didn't bless me with the smallest hands in the world so watch repair, micro surgery or fiddling around inside a PC are totally off the table.

    No they are not that good. I take my hardware problems to a local shop because I hate working on them anymore, if it is software I solve those myself.
