Nintendo Wii Repair
"""Hey I went to this place in Chinatown, it was nuts. There was no store really. You just walked up to the counter. You know, like buying food at an amusement park. And they fixed my stuff!"" You too will have a similar story to tell your friends.
I highly recommend xCubicle. They fixed a badly scratched CD of mine, which allowed me to export the data to my computer. This had not been possible before going here. The disc would freeze. Nothing worked. Not even the famed toothpaste method.
This is all thanks to their highly advanced CD scratch repair machine. I'm not talking about that cheap Walkman-looking thing you get in the clearance section of a Best Buy. This bad boy is a sophisticated piece of tech. They might be the only place in New York with one. And the service is only $7. The cool dude at the counter even offered to run the disc through the machine twice without charging me any extra. Whole process takes about 15 minutes.
Going here in and of itself is kinda neat. As mentioned before, there's no actual store to walk into. It's just a counter you go up to. Very old school. A nice change of pace and certainly a vestige in an increasingly bygone New York City."
"Outstanding service. Cheaper and quicker than using Sony's prescribed repair procedures.
My PS3 lens reader just broke and bought it to them for service. It took just a little less than a week for repair. If I used Sony, they would have sent me a box for the PS3 to mail and then wait almost a month for its repair and return."
"Sure they will fix your consoles, but they will return your consoles in a damaged state.
The NDS Lite that I had taken to xCubicle to repair worked afterwards but the external shell was completely scratched up. I provided photographs showing that my NDS Lite was in perfect condition (I had installed a custom shell so there were no marks or scratches) and I provided photographs of what my NDS Lite looked like after they repaired it, which was scratched up all over on the front and the back. However, xCubicle refused to provide appropriate compensation and I am now contacting the Better Business Bureau in order to sort things out.
Long story short: GO ANYWHERE ELSE. This place does not accept that they made mistakes and they will continue to try and pass the blame onto you if there are any damages."
