Up & Running Before There Were Any Operational Disruptions

We recently had a virus that wiped out our main operating software, leaving us in a compromising position to conduct our day to day operations. Our first call was to First Choice. Dave’s reaction time was superior. He had us up and running before there were any operational disruptions. His understanding of the critical nature of this problem gave us the confidence that he would work on the problem until it was resolved. Thanks Dave, you will remain our First Choice.

Ironed Out Wrinkles Caused By Previous Techs

I am a freelance legal assistant and it’s imperative that my computer is working at top efficiency 24/7. Dave Melchert was introduced to me about a year ago by a colleague. He has ironed out wrinkles caused by previous techs, provided me with insight that has otherwise not been made available and shared his knowledge on issues that ordinarily come with an invoice. Most importantly, when you have an emergency, he’s there for you and will work with you until the problem is resolved. First Choice will be the last choice you have to make.

Absolutely Excellent IT Service

Absolutely excellent service. My computer screen had gone green and I called and Dave walked me through and solved the problem. Dave was extremely patient with me as I do not know very much about computers. I would definitely recommend his business without hesitation.

An Enormous Wealth Of Information

First Choice Computers (Dave Melchert) I would certainly call him as he has an enormous wealth of information filed away in his brain, which he pulls out just when you need it. If your computer crashes and you are ready to pull your hair out, Dave saves the day and recovers all your data, if your POS terminal in playing games on you, he can fix that as well. Get a virus on your computer and he cleans it up and has your computer or laptop running like new…or better. Don’t leave home without First Choice Computer’s business card, or their phone number etched in your memory!

Best Pricing On Hardware

Just a quick review of my last few experiences with First Choice, IBM Laptop, software issue, quick response to my issues, great trouble shooting, their years of experience in the business paid off for me, network problems solved over the phone, they know as much about laptop issues as they do about servers, great aftermarket service also.
PS. they looked for the best pricing on hardware and passed the savings onto me.

Dual Processer Server For Extremely Large High-Definition Video & Audio Files

January 18, 2009 To Whom It May Concern: As I am intending to provide a reference for David Melchert and First Choice Computers, it may be important for you to know something of myself. Please allow a few lines of introduction. My name is Randy Butcher, and I am a resident of Cambridge, Ontario. I am a practicing professional stuntman, stunt coordinator, action director, and screenwriter working in the film and television industry. President of Reel Stunts Productions, I am a member in good standing with the Alliance of Canadian Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA), and the only Ontario based stunt coordinator who is a member of the Union des Artists (UDA), the French speaking union headquartered in Montreal, Quebec. I came to know David approximately 10 years ago when a family member using his services introduced us. I have since taken full advantage of his knowledge and skill as a computer technician, and have very much enjoyed my interaction with him. David has provided me with every computer service imaginable. From building me a dual processer server to handle extremely large high-definition video and audio files for editing purposes, to wiping out a stubborn virus infecting my laptop, he’s been there for me. I have also found him to be a conscientious and patient teacher, actually instructing me to do things I would otherwise hire him to do for me. Now that’s confidence. In my business, time is money, as they say, and when any one of my computers go down, it is imperative the matter be handled immediately. David Melchert and First Choice Computers have always been there for me. I recommend David Melchert and First Choice Computers without reservation. Yours sincerely, Randy Butcher President, Reel Stunts Productions

Skillfully Removed the Virus & Saved ALL Of My Data

I have operated a small part-time business for several years and my laptop is crucial to do my work. I managed to pick up a horrible virus which completely locked up my computer. I contacted Dave at First Choice Computers and he agreed to see me the very same day. Dave skillfully removed the virus and saved all of my data. What a relief! The cost was very reasonable too. I would highly recommend First Choice to anyone and everyone! Thank you Dave!

Solved The Problem Within The Hour

Visiting family in Cambridge, I had to annotate an MS Word file for a publisher using my daughter’s computer. All I could get was an error message – she had Word 2003 and my file was in Word for Mac. I tried a computer consultant who stood me up, and in desperation found Dave. He solved the problem within the hour. Result: profound relief and thanks.

First Choice Computers To The Rescue

Blackberry users pay attention! 733 business and personal contacts. Docking port breaks off, and I didn’t back it up on my laptop. New Blackberry and no idea of how to get those contacts off the old one and on to the new one. Blue Tooth, absolutely. But do I know how to do it? Absolutely not. Did David Melchert from First Choice Computers come to the rescue. Absolutely yes. If this ever happens to you, David is the man to call. Am I now backing up my Blackberry every day? Duh…
