How does their customer service stack up and what are their shipping costs and delivery times like?

Customer service pretty awesome. Technology services are quick and half the time don't even charge you. Much better than the "Geek Squad" near me. They have a store where I live and you can go in and they will help you with your computer needs quickly and service is always friendly.

I believe so. But yeah, if you ever do find anything, it should get there next day.

Seriously, GeekSquad? I used to look up to FireDog and GeekSquad until I saw a news headline one day on Fox. They had a computer that they pulled the IDE cable on and took it to some GeekSquads - Some fixed it and others claimed it was a broken HDD and wanted to charge about 400 dollars to replace it - That's more than the cost of a whole new computer!

Off-topic, but I figured I'd put that out there for anyone who uses them. Some can be trusted, others can not.

No worries. It kinda sorta all relates. But yeah, the Geek Squad near me charged my mom $670. $100 for the diagnostics, $250 to replace the hard drive, $250 to install a virus in a brand new install of windows on a new hard, and $70 for anti-virus software to get rid of of the virus THEY installed.

Or the investigation where they faked a customer's porn folder, put a self-recorder on the computer, and watched as the technician copied it to his flash drive. I think that was geek squad (not firedog). Pathetic.
