They're the best available to Chicago. I still wish they had more inventory. There's always something missing. And ease it with the sales push please. I like my salesperson to know more about their stuff than just saying it's "the best". (Generally speaking not singular instance) Which is why I avoid the sales people even if they're super nice to everyone. (Still ask for and use their stickers though).

Just wanna share some of my experiences with all of you out there looking for a place that have it all. You can not judge a place in this category unless you are or wanna to become a geek.... I am not saying I am one just yet but I do have experience to have at least an opinion. This place is awesome.... Good quality products and warranty even if it's optional, good selection of brands and plenty of options. They do most of the time match the price with some online selling sites, exceptional knowledge and understanding of all products and that's so important for buyers. And of corse they do have few things where they need improvement: sometimes it happen but it does you can't find somebody available to help you out with your purchase and that can be frustrating but as I said it's not all the time. Again if you are looking for a place to buy all most anything in this category this Is your best choice, but if you're looking for butt kissing ...well...it's not the right place. For Management: you guys ....good job For sales guys: stop chasing people with those stickers...we know how important those are for you but sometimes it's rude to stop somebody and put the sticker on the products they found by them self with no help from you. I think the store needs a directory like in malls or just a little map to make easier for all of us to find what we need. Thx again for the opportunity to share my ideas. Peace.

My favorite store.. Staff is 90 percent the time knowledgeable, friendly, and fast in helping you out. While the company discriminates past convictions from over 10 to 20 years ago since I've applied to work there 100s of times and got denied. I can build a computer from scratch, program, major tech geek here been doing sales for over 20 years making over 240k profit a year for my company, but no hire. My money seems good to take as a customer go figure lol..

I used to live 1-1/2 miles from this place. It's a good thing I now live 120 miles away because I spent too much time/money here. Great selection on computers, laptops, tablets, TVs, computer parts, software, and tech stuff.

I felt like writing a review due to the fact that I have had such fantastic experiences at Micro Center I felt everyone should know! I moved to Chicago from an area of the country where there are no Micro Centers and was a bit skeptical of this store. I ended up purchasing a refurbished laptop, it has served me well for over a year now, and it was $249 cheaper than Best Buy. I went back to purchase a gaming desktop, the staff explained my options the pro's and con's of each unit I was interested in, and in the end set me up with the best machine for my purposes. Recently I went back to get a new router...the sales person explained my options and I decided on one that would have been about $130-40. Now the staff I believe makes some sort of commission, but when I decided on the router the sales staff pointed pointed out that the same router could be purchased for less if I wanted to get a refurbished model. The refurbished model was only $59.99...awesome router! My gaming experience has improved 10 fold! Micro Center is just an all around great place to shop for anything computer/tech!

This place is great! It is very busy but, if you can get someone to help you, they are very knowledgeable. I purchased a great computer here and the sales guy did not push me to buy one with the extras that I did not need. I have been here a few times and I always feel good about my purchase.

Very friendly staff who really know about computer's. they will talk to you about the pros and cons of different parts and best of all will give you an honest opinion. Don't listen to these complaints, every time I go to the store it's organized and things are easy to find, you can even check the stores inventory online and it even tells you what aisle its in.
