Micro Center : Customer Feedback & Reviews

Customer feedback for Micro Center is mixed. The main complaints for those ordering online include having to enter in too much information just to order products and poor inventory control when ordering and then having the order cancelled. A few customer comments include:

  • "I ordered a CPU - motherboard combo from MicroCenter - in store pickup only (no shipping on specials). I ordered online and it was ready for pickup within 20 minutes. Those of us that build PC's in the US rely on MicroCenter! Nothing else compares. The PatersonNJ store is the one closest. The staff are friendly and typically provide very good information. My last order involved service - had to test a CPU on the motherboard. There was one snag, an item from the box not returned. They resolved the problem promptly to my satisfaction. I don't understand the other negative reviews. MicroCenter is a great place. Check out Hard Forums for more info and deals."
  • "Emailed customer service over an issue, they were incredibly helpful and polite. What started off as a bad experience became an excellent one."
  • "This is a horrible company--they make you enter all kinds of personal information to buy an item on sale, and then once they have your personal information, they cancel your order!
