Amazon was probably ecstatic that someone finally used their 'With installation' option. The employees in that department must've gotten mightily bored waiting for this moment the past few years.

Imagine The Verge PC guy knocking on your door with a bag of tweezers in his left hand, a bucket of thermal paste in his right hand, a swiss army knife in his pocket and a table in the back of his van in case you don't have one.

No joke, that Amazon rep was outstanding. Empathetic, helpful, did everything in his power to help you out. That dude deserves a raise.

I'm glad to see the technician himself was as good as he is. He seems like a cool dude. Sucks that the company he works for is so crazy/bad to show a really low price on their site like that.

These guys are charging 150-220 or so for an install and here I am upgrading my neighbor's pc for a couple of beers. Man I've been cheated my whole life

I'd rather buy more parts than paying $81 to a random to put my lego together lmao

Imagine paying 2 times the price of a motherboard to install it lmao

And here I was thinking “$81?? That’s rediculous” only to find out they charged 3x as much later on. At that point you might as well just learn how to install yourself

All in all, seems like he did a pretty decent job. As for the pricing, that is definitely dishonest to advertise an estimate less than half what it actually costs, but I don't think this guy is to blame for that.

I'm a technician in Brazil, and I charge 80 reais to go to the client's house, set up the computer and leave it running with the necessary programs. Less than $ 20

For $200+ dollars, Bezos himself better be coming with his tool kit and thermal paste

As a lawyer, this is a easy win in court because of false advertising. Amazon would ultimately pay you out of court.

I once build a PC for a friend and he was like "Arlt (the shop) asked $250 to build it, how much do you want?"

I love the honesty about the service you got and even though the price was a rip off you gave credit to the tech where it was earned

he’s got better customer service than what i would honestly offer, i’d prefer to be left to do it on my own and get the job done, good on this guy for going the extra mile to teach

The question we can legitimly ask is if the technicien has to payback any percentage to Amazon on all the jobs they provides him…. If yes then there is a real need to go further in the investigations….. 🤔 🧐

Imagine ordering a service like this and the Verge guy shows up to install your motherboard.

Yep, was nice to see this "expert installation" I always wondered what it'd be like. So I guess it's just Amazon's fault they estimate the service price too low. Looks like the technician was priced fair for your area and acted in a professional manner.
