Nintendo 3DS XL Repair (2012-2014 Model)
These guys took old broken Xbox 360 and fixed it for a reasonable price. Fast service and great storefront. I really enjoy dealing with electronics through a drive through style window and they offer a 90 warranty on all work. I did not need to ship my Xbox because I live so close.
"""Hey I went to this place in Chinatown, it was nuts. There was no store really. You just walked up to the counter. You know, like buying food at an amusement park. And they fixed my stuff!"" You too will have a similar story to tell your friends.
I highly recommend xCubicle. They fixed a badly scratched CD of mine, which allowed me to export the data to my computer. This had not been possible before going here. The disc would freeze. Nothing worked. Not even the famed toothpaste method.
This is all thanks to their highly advanced CD scratch repair machine. I'm not talking about that cheap Walkman-looking thing you get in the clearance section of a Best Buy. This bad boy is a sophisticated piece of tech. They might be the only place in New York with one. And the service is only $7. The cool dude at the counter even offered to run the disc through the machine twice without charging me any extra. Whole process takes about 15 minutes.
Going here in and of itself is kinda neat. As mentioned before, there's no actual store to walk into. It's just a counter you go up to. Very old school. A nice change of pace and certainly a vestige in an increasingly bygone New York City."
My Nintendo Wii had multiple symptoms and was only working sporadically. I was searching for repair options and found xCubicle. It just so happened I was planning to be in NYC for the weekend so I dropped off the console for evaluation. I figured if it took longer than my time in the city, my brother could pick it up for me since he's local. Anyway, I paid the $20 diagnostic fee (which gets applied to the repair cost) and went back to my hotel. About an hour after I dropped it off, they called with the problem and told me I could pick it up the next day. My total cost was $80 which was worth every penny. The Wii works like new and I don't have to worry about replacing it with a new one. I should say also that it was very easy to locate and I'm not all that familiar with the city or subway lines. It was practically fool proof. Their shop is just down the block from the subway. It's cash only, so be aware of that. I recommend them completely.
