    I had a wonderful experience today at Ballard Computes. Marvin got me right in for an iPad screen repair and completed the job in 2 hours! What would have cost me $300 with Mac, he did for $100. It's good as new! I will be back, I'm sure and will highly recommend him to others.

    When I broke my iPhone, my friend immediately told me about Marvin Ballard. She said he did great work, had great prices, and a quick turnaround time. I called on a Saturday, he got me in immediately, and fixed my phone right away. It was a great experience, and I left with the assurance that he would stand behind his work for a year. Later in the week my phone started acting up, so I called Ballard Computes, and, once again, was told to come right in. While Marvin was working on my phone, I spoke with another customer who raved about the quality of work he does. To my dismay, my phone decided not to power on. It was obvious Marvin cared, and he kept working on it until he got it on. I highly recommend Ballard Computes, and will definitely call again, should the need arise.

  • I am so happy that I found this place! My laptop was not working & I have a class starting. I walked in and he was able to look at my laptop and repaired it the same day. His prices and customer service are excellent!! Thanks so much Marvin!

    Marvin is absolutely wonderful to work with! I was the one that broke my 6 year old's iPad, not her, and he was able to fix it and I think it looked even better than before it was broken. He took his time and made sure it was fixed properly, and even gave us a case and a cleaning cloth. He also met with me on a Sunday. Again, he is a great guy to work with!!! I would recommend him to anyone in need of repairs on Apple products!

    5 star ratingMarvin is great!  We took our son's iPhone 6S to him.  It was cracked to pieces with lines going through the screen.  The guy at Sprint had told me that the phone could not be fixed.  I called Marvin and he told me to bring it in as it was free to assess the phone and he usually could tell immediately if it could be fixed. Sure enough he looked at the phone and knew that he could fix it AND while we waited nonetheless.  As he fixed the phone, he showed us every part of the inside of the phone as well as gave us pointers.  I would not hesitate to go back to Marvin. As a matter of fact, taking my laptop computer to him to make it faster! Highly recommend this place.

  • Awesome service and great quality! He go back to me immediately when I asked him about my issues. Then not only did I get an amazing repair, I got a top of the line new case for my devices at no extra cost.

    To top it all off he continued to be available via text and phone when I had some unrelated questions about downloads and operating systems.

    If I could give a 6 Star rating I would!

    He was very informative and excited about computers, you could tell he knew computers really well. Went in to get advise on my Dell computer whose screen was lighting up and had no image on it but did have lines through it.......it had some previous damage as well. Advised me against getting the computer fixed since there was so much other damage and to go forth with a new computer. Saved me the effort of sending my computer out through the mail to Dell and getting same answer from them but for a lot more money and a lot more time

    Hard drive crashed on Sunday. Dropped my PC off Monday AM and picked it up Monday PM. Hard drive upgraded to SSD and he was able to recover ALL of my files! Excellent work! 5/5!

  • You will not be disappointed with Marvin at Ballard Computes. He has serviced our PC desktop with a shot hard drive, improved our slow and cluttered laptop, "unbent" our bent iPad, and just today fixed the side buttons and replaced the battery in an old iPhone 6. Marvin is honest about his diagnosis, cost and parts. He shows you the issues you have with your electronics, and discusses the solution with you. His pricing is beyond reasonable, and his turn around is QUICK! He is professional, and personally backs all his work. We are dedicated customers!

    Per usual, Marvin was very helpful with my computer repair. My keyboard on my Macbook wasn't working properly and he provided transparent advice as to the best next steps. He cares about his patrons and finding them the best option, not strictly making a dollar. I'm very grateful to have met him and will continue to use his services!

  • 5 star ratingI highly recommend Marvin and his repair services.  I received his information from a friend last year after cracking my iPhone screen.  Marvin quickly repaired it for us while we ran a short errand nearby last year.  And then this week my iPhone was dropped in water and so this morning at 8am I called Marvin and he said to bring it on in.  He dried it all out and determined that it had no life left to it, for free.  And today I also took my iPad in with a cracked screen and he promptly fixed that for me too.  Superb service from Marvin.  I recommended him to a friend of mine and she also had a phone screen fixed today.  
    Ballard Computes is on 88th and Hague road in a grey building with white columns out front.

  • He was amazing! VERY knowledgeable and excited about what he does. I had bought a brand new laptop 6 months ago, and despite being brand new in the box, it came with the wrong charger. He knew immediately, and gave me advice on how to get the right charger. He also was super excited about the PC and offered ways for me to improve it even further.

    Ballard Computes is the only place you should go for electronics repair! Marvin is very knowledgeable, fair, and most importantly, honest. Does a great job explaining option and what’s going on. Does not try to screw you over and has fair prices. Don’t even bother going anywhere else; professional, knowledgeable, affordable and FAST! Thanks Marvin for fixing up my laptop in less than 24 hours!

  • 5 star ratingI have a HP laptop touchscreen that kept shutting down since it was new. Bought it off QVC and that was my first mistake. After calling HP and them charging me a monthly fee for a year and it never got better. I took it to Marvin and he took care of it and no more shutdowns. I have even texted him for advice and he responded quickly even though its been about a month. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a computer shop.

  • We took my son's IPad to be repaired after a recommendation from a friend. I am so glad we did! Not only was it done the same day, but Marvin offered courteous service and at a great price!

    Very knowledgeable and open about what he was doing to fix my computer. Has an extensive background in computer repair and has the capabilities to fix most technology related issues. He even showed me some of his equipment and explained how it worked. I drove 1 hour to see him and I would recommend him to anyone in the area.

    Great service and extremely affordable! Won't go anywhere else for repairs on computers. Fixed an iPad screen in less time and much cheaper than the other 4 places that I called!

  • Heard about Ballard Computes from a friend. Mr. Ballard replaced the glass on my iPhone 7 with great skill and results. He even threw in a free iPhone case. Couldn't recommend him higher!

    5 star ratingGreat experience upgrading an older iMac to an SSD drive. Despite the machine running perfectly fine, the local Apple Store wouldn't touch it. I also reached out to two area Apple repair shops, and the best they could do were vague assurances of getting it on the bench in a week or two, and hand waving on costs. Mr. Ballard, by contrast returned my call immediately and was very transparent about the process and pricing. He even offered to see me and do the work on a Sunday! Upgrade was straight forward and the price was very fair. Seriously, I highly recommend Ballard, and will refer friends & family to them.

    Excellent and prompt service. My only regret is not asking about pricing prior to Marvin completing the repair, which costed just as much as the cost I paid for my device. Too expensive for such a small task. Otherwise, great service.
