We were happy to bring back your Toshiba laptop to life after it O/Ded on tea in October of last year, and delighted to replace the charging port on your iphone 5s this time. Thank you for trusting The TechKnow Space for your repairs.
My second visit to techknow space. The customer service was quick and friendly. Was told it would be a hour wait for my iPhone 6 screen repair. Came back in a hour and it was ready. Screen looks great, looks brand new!
Exactly a year earlier we replaced the screen on your HP laptop and this time we did the same for your iPhone 6s.
We trust both the repaired products are bringing smiles to your life.
If the next passion in your life is an elephant that needs help, please do not hesitate to call us :)
Been here a few times to fix my phone and laptop, very fast service and usually cheaper than other repair shops
Many thanks Eddy. We hope your Lenovo laptop provides you many years of happy computing.
I stumbled on to this company a couple years back for when I wanted my broken phone fixed.
Ever since that experience i have nothing but amazing things to say about this location/company.
I have come many times, to look into laptop being fixed, fixing two Samsung broken screens and even to see if I could salvage my old ipod to get fixed.
In all those efforts they were professional, told me straight up if it was worth fixing and did their due diligence in fixing it and took their time in doing so.
Ive always recommend this location to all my family and friends.
Dont waste your time reading the negative reviews of this place. You will always have a pleasant experience there.
Cheers to you guys and your team.
Thanks for an amazing review! We always strive to deliver a great customer experience, though occasionally we do drop the ball. However, we never compromise on our efforts or integrity, and are super gratified when we receive customer affirmation. Thanks again, for your trust in The TechKnow Space. May your Sony lapotop, the two Samsung Galaxsy S4s and the iPod Touch 4 provide you the many years of happy service.
Our best to you and yours, Moiz.
This is the BEST place to go for your I phone or computer : honest, efficient , price cannnot be beat.
Many thanks Yvette. We hope your HTC and HP laptop we repaired provide you many years of value and happiness.
I have been a customer since ten years now and you are my last bus stop when I need help to service my computer, laptop, tablets and cellphone that other service companies are afraid of handling. I just bought a new Sony Ultra and something happened to it and when I brought it to technow space they found out what happened to my cellphone and repaired it for nothing compared to the prize given by other companies I tried. Thank technow space being given here for me. Continue the good job and God bless.
Thank you Dr Charles...so pleased to be your last bus stop for all your digital problems these last 10 years!
We plan on working hard to have The TechKnow Space become your very first stop over the next 50 years!
Thanks again, doc.
Such perfect customer service, if there was 10 stars I'd rate it a 10! very fast, straight forward, no hidden cost. Best place to go! I recommend it to everyone! Love you guys❤️
We love you too :)
You have repaired a second device with us in the last 30 days....we are so honored and flattered.
It has taken many years (almost 12 to be exact) of perfecting the art of digital repairs, but we are finally ready and delighted to take our bows to customers like you, Irene!
We hope you and your iPhone 6 have many years of happy travels together!
Our best to you...from your 10-Star team at The TechKnow Space
Located in what may be the most convenient location in Mississauga on City Centre Drive, TechKnow Space offers the most competitive phone repair prices around. The best part is their 1-hour phone repair service that will have your phone up and running in no time - and you can even kill some time at the mall while you wait.
This place is as advertised. They promised a 1 hour turn around time for my cracked screen and they had it completed on time as promised. In general were friendly and professional.
Great service and convenient location, I will be returning here if the need arises to fix any other items.
Thanks Zarak, for your kind input....much appreciated.
Truth in advertising and managing expectations is what we live by!
We look forward to seeing your friends and family visit us for any repair needs....going forward.
Highly recommend it, professional and efficient service - I will return.
My iPhone screen cracked a day ago and I had no idea where to go to get it fixed. I dreaded the thought of giving up my cell for a few days to get it repaired.
I considered buying a new phone (in order to avoid being "phoneless" for a week) but decided to complete a google search and find a place that can fix my cell at a reasonable price and within a reasonable amount of time. I found these guys on google and I'm glad I did!
During my initial call, the staff person was friendly and I decided to attend the Mississauga location.
When I attended the store, staff were professional and friendly. They replaced the screen in less than 15 minutes! I attended with my two year-old and getting this done - on the spot- in less than 15 minutes was a plus!
They were very accommodating to my two year-old as we waited and they also helped me with picking out a case cover (which I'm very happy with).
Price was reasonable and my phone is good as new , location/hours were also convienant.
Hi Sandy, thanks!
Did you not find anything that did not please you! We must walk on water!
Here is the simple reason why we were on our best behavior…to impress your two-year old who we are convinced will become our lifetime customer upon turning 15
We look forward to seeing all your friends and neighbors soon :)
The staff is kind, and the service is at times better then Apples. Prices are competitive, too. Highly recommend!
Apple excels at many things. The TechKnow Space excels at bringing dead and damaged devices to life.

Great service , very quick and well executed .
I had replaced the screen myself once before and it was a major pain . It took me 3 hours, almost gave up and ultimately , I did a poor job. I don't know how they managed to do this so quickly and perfectly . They must have a man with the worlds smallest hands back there .
Q: What is the most important part of your computer?
A: Your Data -Documents, pictures, music, contacts, videos, downloads, web browser bookmarks, e-books, and any other crucial files, are all stored on the hard drive in your laptop.
Even though you may have cloud backup synchronization enabled for your most critical settings a large portion of the data remains stored locally on your computer.
The average laptop user is usually not very good at remembering to save a copy of all of their important files to an external save space, whether that is a portable hard drive, or a USB memory stick, or to a cloud data service like iCloud or Dropbox.
Because of this, often your main concern when you learn that your laptop is completely toast, is “Oh no, now I have to start from scratch.”
Thumbs up to Technospace. I've used them several times and recommend them to all my friends. They've always had my repairs done in the amount of time quoted
Hard Drive Enclosure VS Replacing the Mainboard
Total cost for removing the hard drive,
installing it into the USB enclosure,
and including the the enclosure itself:
Total cost for the effort of trying to
buy a used laptop mainboard online,
get it shipped to you,
and paying somone to install it in your laptop:
HUNDREDS of dollars
(essentially the cost
of a brand new laptop)
Hard Drive Enclosures: The Silver Lining in the Dark Cloud of a Dead Laptop
Sometimes when a laptop repair is not cost effective, it can be hard to let your laptop go quietly into the night.
The most common reason that a laptop repair isn’t worth completing is because it needs a mainboard replacement. The mainboard, which is sometimes called the motherboard, is one of the major components in your laptop. It is vital to the general operation, and usually problems with the mainboard in your laptop can cause many different issues, such as:
Your laptop won’t charge the battery
The laptop seems to turn on, but nothing happens on the screen
Happy Customer 5 years ago
It won’t turn on at all
You can’t use your laptop because it often restarts or turns off on its own
Your laptop doesn’t connect to Wi-Fi networks, or randomly disconnects from these networks
Problems such as these can often only be fixed by replacing the entire mainboard in your laptop. But trying to successfully complete a laptop motherboard replacement is not as easy as it sounds.
It can be difficult coming to terms with the news that your laptop is toast, but often with mainboard issues, all is not lost.
Even if the laptop isn’t worth repairing, all of your important files like photos, documents, and music, can usually be saved.
The best way to get all of your crucial data from your laptop is to create an external portable hard drive with the hard drive that’s inside your laptop.
In 9 out of 10 situations where a laptop has a failed main-board - the hard drive (the part of your computer where your data is stored) is still working and we can remove it, and install it into an external hard drive enclosure.
You will be able to access your data by plugging the 'new' drive into the USB port on any other computer or laptop.
There are 2 main advantages:
1. You have your data.
(The obvious benefit)
2. You have a portable external hard drive that will work like a USB flash drive with any computer.
Going forward you can use the external drive as a backup device - to help avoid the risk of data loss in the future.
(A less obvious benefit - bet you didn't think of that!)
So while it might be hard to say good bye to your trusty and beloved laptop, the pain and distress of hearing the bad news has a silver lining.
Hard drive enclosures are the best solution for retrieving all of the files stored on your laptop.
I used this place for few years, so far no complains, fixed many broken screens and keyboards, and they did some custom work to fix damaged laptop body. happy with service and quality, also fast
Buying a Replacement Motherboard VS Buying a New Laptop
There is very little benefit in going ahead with a mainboard replacement in your laptop. For starters, replacement main boards usually not available as a new part.
Without new parts available, your only other option is going online and finding a used mainboard that was in someone else’s laptop.
This choice is risky because you are at the mercy of the seller’s trustworthiness. There are a lot of details that are important to get right when you are trying to find the right replacement motherboard.
Some less honest online stores might not be very concerned with ensuring you are buying the right parts, or even that the parts are any good before they are shipped to you.
If you are lucky enough to find the exactly right mainboard for your laptop, then there are still the costs of installing it, which is a very labour-heavy job.
After all of the time and effort and money you spent on finding and installing a motherboard in your laptop, there is no guarantee the replacement will last you very long.
Instead of spending hundreds of your hard-earned money, and hours of your precious spare time, on a solution which is costly and risky, looking to buy another laptop is a better answer.
Great service, Price is not too low but less than others, so competitive price, I love the service they provided. very helpful. 5 start from my side. I am talking about Toronto branch, not sure about other branches. Also very fast service, I think less than 2 hrs I got my laptop back. very happy with the service.
