Joseph M. was the best! I was very anxious/nervous about spending the money on a whole new system, but he was so friendly, quickly figured out what I needed and went above and beyond to explain everything (I'm not very familiar with computers) so that I understood my options. He made the process extremely easy and found me the best option well within my price range. I'll never shop anywhere else.

I visited Micro Center for the first time and was very pleased. The store had the parts I was looking for, and less expensive than I could have purchase online. I also saw some great deals on other items that will bring me back there this weekend. Quick service at the register as well. I wish they had one closer to my home north of Chicago, but that's a small issue.

No other place has better pricing or selection, been going there for years with my brother and if you simply need a monitor, or want to do a build from the ground up they have it. One other thing to note,the guys there actually have knowledge of what they are selling, so when your operating in an area your unfamiliar they actually can HELP you.

Couldn't return a present. They wouldn't accept an item that was recently bought, never opened with the receipt... What!? Why!? No, I have to tell my friend to come with me to the store, so that they can ensure that the person who bought the item is returning it. What kind of policy is that? No kind, according to management it's their unwritten policy to ensure that there is no issues later on... Apparently giving presents is not a welcome behavior at Micro Center, or may be it's just returning them.. well I'm sorry I already have an ipod and I don't need another one!

The computer repair technicians are incredible. I had been taking my desktop to geek squad for over 3 years for one problem, my desktop kept shutting down. I ditched those losers and finally took it to micro center, they fixed it within two visits. They kept me up to date with phone calls and the technician was polite as well as exceptionally knowledgeable. Not to mention initial diagnostics are only 40 dollars. I'm seriously blown away, I'm never going anywhere else again.

The worse phone service ever. Hold for 5 minutes and your call gets dropped. (They haven't changed their hold music in years) I repeated the call 3 times and every time the call was dropped after 5 minutes of hold time. How about standing in a long line waiting to get to a register? That's always fun. I look forward to that.

Hi Stan, I'm so sorry about the phones. We are working to move all of our stores over to a centralized call center at the corporate office but the Elston Ave location has not been moved over quite yet. I definitely understand the frustration. Can you email me at with a phone number and what you;re looking for? I can have an expert give you a call. Thanks, James Customer Relations Micro Center

Great customer service, prices are a bit steeper compared with online retailers such as Newegg or Amazon, but for processors, you can't beat Micro Center. I can always find processors $20 - $50 cheaper here than anywhere else. At the time of writing, an i5 4690K is priced at $199, compared to $235 on Amazon or $239 on Newegg. If you're looking to build a PC, get your processor here.

My goto store. Good customer service. It's the best "toy store" for geeks and IT professionals.
