"I love this place. We've gone to them twice, once for a broken DS and once for a broken Xbox360. They fixed the broken DS in a matter of hours (display needed to be replaced) and on the Xbox 360 I needed a new power supply, which they sold me for $30.

I think they're honest, brilliant, and reliable."

"After a quick search on google for places in NYC that repair game consoles, I came across a link to xcubicle's website. I clicked through the link and filled out a request for a quote, describing my problem in detail. I received a timely response from Suesan describing that my PS3 may be experiencing overheating issues and that xcubicle usually charges $100 ($20 diagnostic fee upfront) to fix this type of issue. To me, $100 sounded reasonable to restore my PS3, as opposed to purchasing a new one. Not to mention, their 60-day warranty sounded appealing.
As a result, I stopped by xcubicle on a Saturday and dropped off my PS3 and was told by the person working the window (you stand outside while they speak to you through a window) that my problem could be fixed after I paid $20 and he ran the ""diagnostic. test""
Halfway through the week, I received a voicemail from an xcubicle employee saying that my PS3 could not be fixed, but that I could purchase a refurbished PS3 for $195. After doing some research online I came to the conclusion that $195 was a reasonable price, so I called xcubicle back and told them to reserve a refurbished PS3 as I planned on picking it up the upcoming Saturday.
When I showed up to pick up the refurbished PS3 I asked for my old PS3 back thinking I could sell it to someone who could use the working parts in order to make some money back. HOWEVER, I was told that the $195 price for the refurbished PS3 was contingent on xcubicle keeping my old PS3. Needless to say, this sounded pretty shady and it made me pretty angry. Upon hearing this, I asked the following questions - I've included their responses.
ME: What was wrong with my PS3 that it could not be fixed?
xcubicle employee: I don't know what was specifically wrong, but sometimes they just cannot be fixed.
ME: Do you plan on reusing parts from my PS3?
xcubicle employee: Yes, but only the lens, not all parts can be reused.
ME: If you plan on reusing my parts shouldn't I get a better price than $195 for a refurbished PS3? $195 is only at a slight discount to other refurbished PS3s online.
xcubicle employee: I can't really negotiate, I'd have to ask my boss.
I then proceeded to ask the xcubicle employee to call his boss. The xcubicle employee went off somewhere in the back and then came back and told me he sent him an email. When I asked why he couldn't just call him, he said his boss is in another country, but that he would be in NYC later in April if I wanted to come back then.
After expressing my displeasure and accusing them of running a racket, I simply asked for my old PS3 back and left.
BOTTOM LINE: These guys are up to something. Contrary to what some other reviewers have posted, their process is NOT transparent at all and dealing with them left a very bad taste in my mouth. I cannot recommend their services. Deal with them at your own risk.
...as for myself, I'm off to see if they already took parts out of my old PS3 (they assured me they hadn't yet, but I'm a little doubtful)."

They seem to do a pretty sloppy job. I brought my phone in to replace the screen because it was cracked. They speedily fixed it and I tested it and it looked great. I happily left. Only to realize that I forgot to test the front camera and it turns out, that was not connected. So I brought it back the next day thinking that they just forgot a step. This time, when I got the phone back after a longer wait than before, the front camera now worked but the back cover was loose, so then i had to give it back and they added more glue. But when I looked closely, the edges of the back cover now have small cracks. It's not extremely visible but it shows that this second time, the person was not as careful when trying to pry open the cover. And then, a few days later, I noticed that the NFC function was not working anymore. I use that to pay for taxi usually. Seems like they missed another step... Don't they have some kind of checklist to make sure they have done everything when they put things back? I have decided not to bring it back because I don't feel that I can trust them to do a good job. They actually charge more than other places I called and more than if I sent it back to the manufactory but I went there because the review ratings looked good and I thought it would be quicker than sending it to the manufacturer. Really wish they were not so sloppy.
