iPhone 6 Repair
"I had them repair my PS3 in November 2012 after it YLoDed in early October. It sounded like a leaf blower, but it was working again and I could recover my saves. Thing is, I had also bought a PC around the same time, and mostly started playing PC games, so even though I had a working PS3 again, I really didn't have much to play on it, so I didn't use it at all... turned it on now and then to cash in my PS+ subscription and get free games, watched maybe one or two movies on it although that was sort of undesirable since the leaf blower fan made it hard to hear the film.
Long story short, I had it on MAYBE about 25-30 hours in the last 6 months since it was repaired, and never to actually play games.
Today, I had it on to actually play a game, since The Cave is free on PSN for PS+. I get about 30 minutes into the game and boom, flashing red light again. I'm now kicking myself in the ass for not having played it in the month after the repair when they had a ""warranty"" for their work, and now I'm back in the same boat I was in before. I wouldn't recommend going with these guys... they were very polite with me, but clearly they don't really know what they're doing with the repairs, and saving the $50 isn't really worth it."
I was in Chinatown with my gf so she could grab some herbal supplies. I was also looking for a microUSB cable for a Rapsberry Pi a work colleague lent me. To my surprise, I couldn't find the right cable anywhere, and when I asked for a microUSB, people would just look at me like I had asked for a rare flexi pressing of a GISM record. In other words; they were just straight up confused cause they didn't know what I was talking about. After some walking (and dumb luck) me and the lady stumbled across xcubicle. It had a sign with the Drupal logo. I knew I came to the right place! Not only did I ask for a microUSB, but the person working inside knew what a Raspberry Pi was and asked if I needed anything else! I was completely surprised and totally psyched that I had gotten my cable. Even more so, since the person knew what I was talking about. Xcubicle rules and is great for greeks!
After updating my rating to 3 stars, I was told I could get my fan replaced, but the risk is that the system will overheat again at some point. My system is pretty old, so I'm wondering if I should pre-emptively buy a new one instead of messing with this one any more (could probably sell it). I'd lose the backward compatibility, but I really don't play the old games anymore. Anyway, my point is, this place is great. I'll keep it at 4 stars because it wasn't clear to me just how loud the fan would be, but they are well priced, quick, and very accomodating.
