Fry's charged 150$ just to scan for viruses. None of the PC technician there are really certified. The one in Fountain Valley, uses google for PC solutions.

Fry's is really great if you know what you want and, if it's in the cage and you have to order it through the guys on the floor, it's not too busy.

Sadly, no one should go there expecting good customer service.

Their technicians are really nowhere near the competency needed to be providing good computer repair. They also lack the motivation to delivery high customer satisfaction. The couple of times I dealt with them, they gave me the impression that they didn't care much about what they do. When things got delayed, they were like, "I don't know. The computer didn't come back last week." They didn't even bother to keep a close eye on things when things were late. I stopped buying extended warranty from them.

FRY's just plain SUX!!! Glad you got it sorted out!

One thing... what made you or them think the hard drive was failing? What led to that diagnosis? If it was in fact a good diagnosis, then perhaps your missing files were in a "bad" area on that drives platters...?

Also FYI, they didnt transfer memory... they transferred files! Memory is hardware!

Fry is not for people that need help with computers it is a supply warehouse with almost everything for people that know about computers. If you want someone to kiss your but and install your Blue ray player contact Best Buy. If you need a new hard drive and you can install it and load all the programs, go to Fry.

I love how people blame other for their own incompetence.
most of the haters forget to understand that they are seeking help because they are either not informed, uneducated, or far to stupid to solve their own problems by themselves.
any stores customer service is there to promote products that the store carries as a solution for your problems but this is an unpaid service so consumers should not rely on it for unbiased information.

just for starters name one good service that is free of cost

I haven't been to Fry's in 15 years and am much happier and saner for not going.

I love Fry's. where can i buy a mace, hard drive, beef jerky, a tv, adult movies, any video game, vacuum cleaner, and a as-seen on tv back shaver?
yeah they have a crap ton of products. at least 50% of which are useless but fun to see. anyone see the humping dog usb dongle? does nothing other then making a humping motion whiles it is plugged in. funny as can be.

hell during the holiday season they even have gourmet fudge cart where people carve you a chunk of whatever fudge you want. really good ****.

dam store carries handcuffs and tazers...whats not to love about Fry's
if i could i would setup a bed in the back and call it home.
