Avoid Gear Box Computers in BrookPark

4 of 4 Gear Box Computers reviews

Guy is a crook. Sold me a piece of junk Dell D620 Laptop, guaranteed the computer to work fine. Computer failed less than 2 months later, and called to ask him what could be wrong, which is ALL I asked. He told me "Boo hoo, cry me a river." and hung up on me. Didn't answer his phone afterwards at all from my number. Is that the way to treat a customer?

He also harasses sellers on craigslist by posting false ads that portray his "competition" and threatens to "get them" on a regular basis. He criticizes legitimate businesses that pay their taxes, but he sells large amounts of computers and doesn't file taxes. He claims the competition is harassing him, when he is the one harassing them.

This guy is a crook, and I would not deal with him at all. There are many people I have talked to that have been screwed by him, and he gave them a similar situation.

His Location and phone is

Gear Box Computers

15535 Snow Road

BrookPark Ohio 44142

216-433-9095

Avoid him at ALL COSTS unless you want to be screwed out of your hard earned money.

I've been in The Gear Box store and was pleased with the service offered and the owner is a good person. I am an educated IT professional and have been in many establishments. I could honestly say that there are many crooked computer shops in Northeast Ohio but Gear Box is not one of them. The only reason this guy is given a hard time is because he's making a come up in the business and Cleveland is full of haters and followers. It's really ashame that many try to bash a guy trying to make a living selling decent pc's and offering good service. Do you have any clue what it costs to lease that building he's in? ALOT!! If all accusations were true then he'd be selling for a lot more than he advertises and charging big time prices for services.

I live near gear box, have been there quite a few times now, and i recently just purchased a beautiful laptop. i also kno people whom purchased computers there as well. They're customer service ia great, and the computers are priced competively. I've heard NO complaints from any real people who bought from them. Ridgetucky, u have horrible business ethics that are child like. Get a grip on life!!

Buyer beware these ppl are spam and overpost there 10 yr old trash
For ridiculous prices

You guys sell 10 year old junk for full retail, spam cl, and need to act more like a biz and run ads like other store and stop spamming craigslist.

The reason there are so many new post is because people found out about this when the user posted a link on cl retard

Anyone that has ever been in the store knows that we stand behind our computers. While competition may want to play childish games and make it seem as though we are running a bad business, it just makes him look worse. It must be a coincidence that everyone who has ever had a "problem" with a computer we sold them all reported within minutes of eachother. Also for the record, searching our database we have no record of a Tyron, Anne, or Kane. Anyone who knows our business knows they can call and we will definately work something out. We do give a warranty and we stand behind it. We have had a total of 5 or 6 people with problems with something we sold them even outside of warranty we will almost always fix it for free OUTSIDE OF WARRANTY. Anyone who knows us knows that these accusations are unfounded and completely false. If anyone at this moment has a problem with their computer that they purchased from us can feel free to come in and we will figure out the best course of action. Please dont trust upset competitors. Thank you for reading this wall of text :)

I bought a dell desktop about 2 mo ago and after reading stuff on cl i opened the case to find all the caps where busted and now the computer turns off and on all the time. I google this and its a common issues with older dells.

Yes i only paid 65 bucks plus tax but still they shouldn't be selling bad stuff like that.
