"Five stars++ Always have had great service from PB Tech - a great range of products and prompt delivery. Recently I brought some incorrect additional memory for my computer. I contacted PB Tech, who advised the correct product. They quickly and efficiently sorted out a return, credited my account and then went the extra mile and ordered me the correct memory using some of the credit. PB Tech totally rocks!"

"I previously dealt with William Habgood years back in the Christchurch branch, he left a lasting impression on me because of his professionalism and follow up email a couple of days after selling me components. Years on, I still had his email address so I thought I'd give it a go; depsite him no longer working in sales or even in Christchurch he helped me select some great components to meet my needs and ensured everything would arrive promptly and would work together. After the components arrived I had a couple of installation questions and again he was more than happy to help guide me with advice. This is the kind of service you all too often don't find any more. Thanks William!"

"Just like to say that I learned a lot today from Mark Stephens, Penrose branch. I'm pretty technical, with many decades of business and personal ICT experience, and wanted advice on choosing a Power Supply to suit my main home PC system with a dozen SATA3 drives. I did end up buying a $711 PSU - not because he tried to sell it to me, he didn't, but from what I did learn, I think it will satisfy my current requirements. We also discussed potential future options if my requirements grow. Great service, appreciated, thanks."

"I came into the Hornby PB Tech to buy the parts for my first PC, JOHN was a very big help and answered any questions I had with the parts I was looking at, He even stopped me from buying the wrong size motherboard so I'm thankful for him doing that. Please make sure that he is rewarded for his exceptional work and knowledge of computers!"

"Hi there. I recently came in to pb tech just yesterday to purchase a new gaming monitor. I had already been in a few month prior and one of you sales suggested a couple of good potential monitor, although they were good they were not at all ideal. As I am a console player only. So yesterday when I came in, and asked about them again I had a different sales person. Jordan Sharplin. I told him about the one the other sales had suggested, jordan said. oh that's odd I wonder why he suggested that because that version wouldn't actually work for what I wanted so he had a look himself. He ended up finding the perfect monitor for me. A very nice Acer and it was even better quality than the previously suggested screens. This man Jordan saved from certain dooms and I am so happy with the monitor I have purchased. It is beautiful and it runs spectacularly. Could not be happier. Well I could be happier actually, this young man Jordan sharplin is sharp with his knowledge of these technologies. He was very patient and listened very well, to use is super pb tech abilities to find the best version of best monitors for me. I fully support that this man deserves a PAY RISE. He is an amazing customer service he is humble and excited happy and smiling he wasn't just trying to sell a screen to make a sale he wanted to help the person in need good vibes all round I would absolutely love to walk in to your hornby branch again when I come to get my computer in.a later date. But to find out this man got a pay rise for being such an incredible part of your team. He knows his stuff and he doesn't fluff around. Pay rise this man today. God only knows we deserve one, especially the good ones like Jordan. It's not every day you walk in to a shop. And leave with the feeling that you can't wait to go back. Thank you very much, Jordan you have made my Christmas. And pbtech you have earned your next valued customer. Merry Christmas. And happy new year"

"Big thanks to Damien in the PC section at Wairau PB tech, someone that knew about the parts and was more than happy to take a look at our build list and price match where possible. Top marks! A+++"
Jordan - 16/12/2018
"A very big thank-you to the young man at PB Tech's call centre who spent a long time working out with me the best and cheapest technical upgrade to my computers when I found that they could not handle a new program. His own technical knowledge was excellent, but whenever he needed more input, or double-checking, from his supervisor he put me on hold for a short time and got it. In short, he went out of his way to make sure that I had quality information on which I could rely in absolute confidence. And, even better, it was a future-proof solution. I ordered the part (a graphics card), it arrived the next day, it was exactly right, and was soon fitted. Brilliant! If we got service of such excellence everywhere (especially in the government), New Zealand would be a far better place. Take a bow, PB Tech!"

"I just want to let you know of our most recent experience at PB Technology last Sunday mid afternoon. We were looking to upgrade an Ipad mini and we received excellent service from a sales team member who listened to what we were thinking, questioned to clarify our thoughts and then made some helpful suggestions while showing us our possibilities. Ben was patient and explained carefully. He made recommendations and outlined the advantages of each. We appreciate his style and his manner and we left with our purchase feeling quite satisfied. We shop with you when we need new technology and have always found helpful and willing staff. Clearly your employee choices and your training programmes are very successful. Kind regards Kathy"

"I would like to give a huge thank you to Ella Kim at the Main Sth Rd branch in Christchurch. My web order could not be located and she continued about her business with a professional and unflustered manner. The warehouse staff failed to turn up at her request. Ella eventually went away and picked another order for me. Great asset to your team"

"I would like to thanks the great service from Andy Liu at North Shore branches. I bought a 55" Philip TV and used for 2 weeks but found with firmware problem which appeared with freeze browser page and even required to force shut down the TV. However, to start with their solution was to wait for Philip firmware update but may be a week, a month or even a few months. I really frustrated with this solution as there are no timeframe for repair. Andy from North Shore not only explained the problem to me but also provide solution and I end up spent extra 60% money to change to LG. This LG TV is a lot better and thanks Andy's advise and help."

"Re: Ben Mingham, Hornby PBTech Yesterday I had a fantastic experience at the Hornby PBTech and I want you to know about it. I went to the Hornby store yesterday afternoon, Saturday 10 November. I needed a power bank and I was directed to Ben. I'm a middle aged woman, definitely tech savvy, but often I find young men (and woman) condescending and sometimes not particularly interested or knowledgeable about what they're selling.. Ben was great. He answered my questions, engaged well with me, and helped me pick what would meet my needs. Because of his manner and knowledge I decided to mention to him a phone issue I'd noticed that day. I said that I thought the battery no longer held its charge and while I wasn't going to replace it yet, I'd appreciate his advice. We talked about what I use my phone for and he said that he thought my phone issue might be hardware rather than battery. I offered to show it to him and I'm grateful that I did. The screen was bulging on one side and the phone felt hot. I was shocked and Ben calmly explained what could happen and how dangerous my phone was. I made the decision to replace my phone then and there, and to forget about a power bank for now. As we worked through my 2degrees contract Ben answered my questions and offered to help clone from my old phone to the new one. It wasn't successful in the time available in store but Ben and Joseph both suggested ways I could safely download the files on my phone at home. If that wasn't successful I knew that I could turn up at 10am today and let the tech guys do it for me. I was so impressed with Ben I asked him if there was anyway I could provide feedback. I have no doubt that because of his manner and expertise I've avoided a fire and burns. I'd been on a navigation course all day using a compass and phone app. I would have come home and just charged the phone and ignored it for the evening thinking that it was just getting old and the battery is tired. Nothing was a problem, he was incredibly helpful, and I think I've been able to get most of what I wanted off my old phone and onto the new one. Ben has wonderful people skills to go with his technical ones. Thanks so much Ben."

"I was in your store today with my Mum to return a Laptop I had bought a few weeks ago and received great customer service from one of your employees Damon Wang(Chch). He helped us for about half an hour, and was very friendly and patient with us. He also gave us good insight on which laptop we should buy and when, hence why I am commending him for helping us so much."

"David Clark from the Hornby branch is a one of a kind salesperson and has turned my purchase of a RTX 2080 into a one of a kind customer service experience. His technical knowledge is amazing and he most certainly raises the bar (for me) of what I should expect from a sales representative at any retail store. David Clark went the extra mile to make sure my early order of this currently limited stock graphics card get here on time and I cannot be more thankful as I have been in need of a good upgrade. David has made my experience with PBtech absolutely wonderful and I encourage everyone to consult with him when making a purchase :). Thank you so much for making my shopping experience a bliss David!"

"I have visited your store in Hornby a number of times, mainly with my grand kids, including in January when I bought a Gear FitPro 2. At that time I received excellent advice and service from knowledgeable staff. Once again on a visit to NZ,on January 10th, I had to return to the store as one of the straps had detached. After initially being advised that the repairs could not be done for a few days there was a change of personnel and I can only say that Tyler Coster absolutely nailed it! I was due to fly back to Australia the following Wednesday He went out the back and when he came back he had found a solution, made a decision and within 15 minutes I was out of the store with a new strap. I want to thank all your staff for their patience and help. Tyler also advised me that you have a mail order service to Australia. I am currently travelling but will be in the market for a flatbed scanner printer copier once I return and will most likely order from your company Thanks again"

"Hi PBTech team, just wanted to say a massive thanks. I pre-ordered the Samsung Note 9 bundle, expecting it to ship on the 24th. Got an email saying estimated ship date was going to be 4th Sept due to some parts of the bundle missing. I called to see if the actual phone was available (because I wanted to take advantage of the Samsung trade-in offer on my Note 4 which expired on 2nd Sept). The people I spoke to on the phone were fantastic & really helpful. Turned out the phone was there and it was the headphones missing. The package was shipped and I received overnight - got my new phone + the Samsung trade in offer. Super pleased & super service. Thanks heaps for being so flexible & accommodating during what I'm sure has been a period of madness. 2 Thumbs Up !"

"Lei at Manukau is a freaking legend. Always deal with him personally every time I visit PB Tech Manukau (and I do this rather a lot). He is always willing to help and find solutions when needed and knows everything about what he's selling, but also knows when to let me exist in my head and run with whatever mad idea I've got this time. Awesome dealing with you and all your colleagues, mate, and no doubt you'll end up with more of my money."
Chris - 26/08/2018

"Came in as a last ditch effort to try to get help with a part I can't buy anywhere. Anthony , is amazing. He saw the plight, thought outside the box, and not only resolved the problem, but, fixed it! I cannot express my gratitude enough. This assistant Branch Manager is worth his weight in gold. He is, a huge asset to this company."

"Hey guys I just wanted to take a second to say thank you for the outstanding service that you both provide to me and our business from the Christchurch hub . In particular Anthony and Joseph Nothing has ever been an issue and you are both a pleasure to deal with. I think I have spent around 15k over the past 12 -24 months and would not be coming back if the service and people were not top notch. Look forward to deal with you in the years to come."

"Jessica at the Christchurch store is a legend. She took the time to answer all my questions, reassured me that the components I picked for my build would enable me to accomplish what I planned and always had a great upbeat friendly personality. Everything was done via phone and email and the experience was truly quite gratifying. PB Tech is the go to place for great service and products. Thanks Jessica :)"

"Amazing service in Henderson when we returned a keyboard in city branch. When we went to Henderson Branch, as we were told " Not the Protocol but we will refund and investigate this matter. We do apologize". Henderson had very nicely and politely sorted the matter and refunded in a difficult situation. I would 100% return to PBTECH."

"I've worked nearly 10 years in retail, many of those as a 2IC, and I've worked as a Mystery Shopping myself, so I really know what makes for a good sales person. Lance is certainly one, and the type of person I'm happy to wait to be served by if he's busy with another customer. He's helped me buy many virtual reality items, and a bunch of cables, rechargeable batteries etc. I keep coming back to him because he knows the products and I can trust his advice, and so it's worth sharing here :) I've seen him with other customers while waiting, and he was giving them really knowledgeable advice about which parts to put in their video editing desktop."
Graham - 27/06/2018
