Holy shit that's disgusting... 80 bucks is already much, then suddenly he's like 220! I'd never pay someone for this before I knew how to do it, but if I did, I'd tell him it's stupid and just leave it. How the hell does Amazon allow this? The guy for sure was taking advantage. 12:52 o.o'

Once had a pc that I could not find out what was wrong turns out (bc it was prebuilt) the motherboard was shot. So Amazon replace my new one and I had a wedding the next two days so I took it to a repair shop the guy said $90 USD so I said ok went to go pick it up and a new guy said that I needed to pay an extra 100 USD bc they had to replace my water cooling bc they broke it🤣 and when I said no they try to take my pc and sell it. Well called the cops told them exactly what they told me and got my pc back. Too many scammers everywhere

I mean did you honestly think someone would drive to your house and take everything off your old motherboard and reinstall and install new parts for 80 bucks? Like who thinks that? How would that business model even work? Hence people build pc’s instead of having it done.

I recently got into building my own pc, and although installing this stuff seems complicated and a bit scary at first, most of it is much easier than it looks, but you'll never learn to do it if you don't actually try. After you learn, you'll feel silly for ever having paid someone to do something that you could've done yourself in a few minutes just by looking at youtube tutorials and your mobo's manual.

Why am I not surprised by this anymore.. I found the service in the US is, generally, terrible. That’s why lots of people DIY. It’s not just about the price.. it’s about they fuck you up no matter how much you pay. Back in China it’s way easier, there are still scammer/technician lacking basic skills, but it’s so much easier to find people to do things like fixing your sewer, window, PS4, TV, fridges... while in the US I am always worried about scammers, who charges a lot (which is ok, if they can fix it), but still fuck things up.. One time is the garden, I got something like wild grass on my yard, quoted on Yelp who estimates “$800” which I thought, yeh sounds fair, then the “expert” scheduled 2 visits, and gave me a $6000 price update. Based on previous experience (plumber asking for $250 for a bottle of $15 sink grease remover, dumbass like me back then agreed and the sink clogged again a week later...), I refused. Instead I took word of mouth and some Mexico friends just cleaned the weed up for $250, then $50/month for regular maintenance, no extra charge!!!! I think people with real skills are so humble and I’d love to pay them more, than the stupid scammers! It becomes more ridiculous when I want to remodel my tiny house, adding a single room. Some asshole just talking big words and quoting me 300K for it, fucking stupid??? And more seriously when we went to watch his other sites, it was terrible. My dad is an expert in this and he can immediate tell many parts where they’ve been cheap and lazy, and the materials are cheap. We interviewed so many contractors and 3/5 of them are assholes.. 1/5 are kind but overcharging a lot, the final 1/5 is reasonable, after realizing they can’t fool you maybe, and they will still spend a year to finish a single room. Anyway it’s just terrible😂. Compared in China, you can just hire a team and get your new house done in 15days, with highest quality(private properties are very very different than some public ones, let’s not talk about that sad cheap shit here, for private properties under your monitor, you can ensure very high quality material and results), it’s just a fact how the US is lacking honest and skillful experts here and how consumers found it frustrating. No matter how much they quote you, you can’t trust them until the job is properly done. Again, I’ve quoted some patio door panels in local stores once and most of those range from $6000~$10000+, there are indeed some high end doors that worth that much, but.. I paid the Homedepot $800 and got the exactly same door quoting me $6000, and installed myself lol, completely customer satisfaction and I know every inch about the job done. Now let’s talk about cars, this is actually where the US and China don’t have any difference. You just can’t find any place that you can fully trust, unless you own that garage or your mother owns it. Took my car once to do oil change in the dealership and they fucked up my turbo intake, like how??? so my car lost boost on the highway back as the intake pipe shoots out, I drove in scare back to get it fixed, AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN on my way back, a THIRD TIME, it finally worked. I was speechless. From that on, I did all my engine oil, tranny oil, diff, spark plugs... just all and it runs fine. I guess it’s just the world we are living in. Learn more, DIY more, making more friends who can get things down. Keep the scammers away...

PC techs in my area charged $60 an hour, 15 YEARS AGO... So I imagine him charging $100 an hour is actually kinda cheap today. I expected maybe $120-150 an hour as an estimate. But him knocking $20 off made me squint a little. A jerk tech would never have done that. He's a good guy, especially with him taking the extra time to "TRAIN" you on the fly... Which also cost him extra time.

200 bucks isn't that much to be earnest. Drive to and from the customer, work itself, amounts to about 5 hours in this case. So about 40 bucks a hour. The guy needs to get paid, the ladie in the office, the car, gas, utilities, insurances, and so on. Plus the risk of damaging something. When the other companie said 160 bucks, they didn't know that the customer is so far away. So they thought about 4 hours for everything. Again, 40 bucks an hour.

To play Devil's Advocate, while I agree that the estimate was ridiculously low compared to the price you were charged, we've all heard far worse horror stories (across a range of trades), Like any hobbyist, builders seem to price their own time at zero dollars per hour but businesses dont work like that, esp if this guy has spent years developing a skillset beyond applying thermal paste to a CPU. The real fun starts when the thing wont even POST or - worse - starts crashing intermittently - that's when you find out if your tech guru knows his stuff. If you build a PC for a friend and he agrees to buy you a carton of beer for your time, great, but that largesse wouldn't last long if you were doing it for a living. Our tech turned up and did the job he was being paid to do after he'd quoted you for the time he estimated it would take - the rest is on Amazon AFAIC.
