Avoid NuTech SM mall

6 posts in this topic

Just a warning about NuTech computers in SM.

 

I bought a new laptop from them in February and the modem went bad after 3 months. I took it back to them but they dont service what they sell. They sent it to another company. That service provider had my computer for one week but didnt even check the modem. When I got it back some of my files were missing and the setting had been changed as well as scratches on the top of the laptop.

 

I took the laptop back to NuTech after they assured me over the phone that they would fix the modem in thier store and not send it out again. I took it back to NuTech but they again wanted to send it out for repair after assuring me they could fix it right there in the store.

 

I didnt want to risk further problems so I decided to leave with my laptop.

I send all my friends living here to Ray at Ingenius in Ayala mall, He is very good, can fix anything, including one guy that spilled a glass of water on the keyboard of his new toshiba satellite laptop, good service and reasonable prices.

Trooper,

Sorry you had a bad experience with NuTech at SM.

I purchased a custom-built CPU from NuTech's original downtown store (Sanciangko at Borromeo) two years ago. The machine has generally done very well, but I have taken it in a few times for diagnosis & repair. The first year they never charged me. Last week, two years later, they charged me P100 to troubleshoot a freeze-up problem; they kept it running two days trying to find the problem (never could find the problem.)

Anway, I think its a great shop and I trust them very much; but then, a mini-tower is much easier to work on than a laptop.

Computers appear to be more expensive here than in America. Wish I could just pick up the phone and order one from Dell direct. I've looked at several places, including "Silicon Valley" and "Thinking Tools" but their prices are over P40,000 for the following configuration:

 

Intel Pentiun 2.66Ghz

1-GB RAM (extra memory is needed for apps)

17-inch Samsung CRT monitor (LCD actually preferred)

40-GB hard disk

CD-RW/DVD drive

Windows XP Pro

 

Any other folks have GOOD experiences buying a computer here at reasonable prices?

 

Thanks

Based on my experience, I wouldn't even consider going anywhere else than PC support, Cebu, -across the street from SM City. I have now bought three computers from them, their level of knowledge is great, their service attitude is second to none -and I would not even hesitate going there again!

Infact, I am planning to get another computer for myself, not long from now!

And I will go to PC Support....

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
