Predatory and Inept 9/4/2013

After ignorantly enriching this business for years, my nearly 70-year-old friend consulted me on his perpetually crashing system that was originally purchased from them and that their repair department had just returned to him. My friend's computing needs are stereotypically modest: email, browsing, and word processing. As soon as I saw the case Central sold him, I smelled elder financial abuse. My friend, who subsists on a monthly social security check, had no problem describing his rudimentary technology needs to me, yet Central sold him an opulent, giant Cooler Master Stacker 830 case $200+ with a comically mismatched Asus micro ATX motherboard/Intel Core i5 2500 $300+, GeForce 650 Ti gaming card $170+, and 8GB RAM/1TB hard drive $200. As recounted in other reviews of their repair service, a new hard drive is this business's panacea for software problems: To solve intermittent blue screen crashes, Central sold my friend another 1TB hard drive $100+. By the time this computer came to my attention, Central had extracted around $1,000 of his retirement funds, hours of labor transporting the Goliath case back and forth from Pacifica, and weeks of down time. Regrettably, my friend abhors confrontation, will not demand a refund, and is doomed to return there for an adapter they failed to supply with the $170+ gaming video card to make his ancient analog VGA monitor connectable. more

Cheap Parts, Wide Selection, Good Deals - Best in San Francisco 8/15/2005

Central Computer Systems is an independently-owned computer store where you can pick up just about any computer part that you may need. It's more like a warehouse than a store, which beautifully translates to that the parts you will pick up will be near-factory direct prices. Much cheaper than Best Buy a mile or two away, and much, much cheaper than CompUSA just up the street, Central Computer Systems also offer service on your parts and will fix all types of computer problems quickly, easily, and for a good price. They also build complete systems tailored to your custom tastes. Central Computer Systems have weekly sales that will drop the prices of dozens of items even lower, so make sure to check out the deals before you start shopping there. Their only problem is that their service isn't too great, despite the fact that there are so many employees, but I think it's worth it to sacrifice a bit of good service for really good prices and knowledge on computer parts. more

Computers 8/9/2005

I called and asked for a specific computer configuration I wanted a long time ago. At that time, they were very busy. I couldn't really hear what he was saying because there was so much noise in the background. The cost was a little too much than I wanted so I went somewhere else and got my computer at a lower price. more
