It’s not Rocket Science

Providing quality products and support isn’t Rocket Science.

It just makes good Business sense to do that. Why would any Service Provider knowingly supply sub-standard products? The last thing we need at Spotty Dog Computer Services is unhappy customer’s making a Warranty Claim that we then need to spend time and effort on rectifying.

That’s why we only use known High Quality Parts and Service Providers.

With thousands of customers from over 20 years in business, we have a focus on providing you with 5 Star Products and Services.

Our Google and FaceBook Reviews speak for themselves.

These Reviews cannot be manipulated, and are a trusted source for most people when looking for products and services online.

Having said that, sometimes customers can’t or don’t want to write a Google or FaceBook Review, so below this section, you will see some Testimonials from our customers over the years.

I was very happy with Iain's service and the new computer he supplied me is great. I was quite concerned about Windows 7 finishing but Iain made the transition so easy I should have done it earlier!My new machine is terrific and I highly recommend him. His service is personalised and he takes the time to listen to you.

It was time for a new computer and I came across Iain's business after a google search. I have since purchased my new computer from Iain and have been nothing short of impressed with his business ethic, professionalism, expertise and realistic prices. My new computer is simply fantastic and Iain didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need (he even provided me with free advice over the phone). We run a small business and have now chosen to have Iain attend to any future computer repairs or sales.

Very helpful advice, and my problem was sorted out on the spot (pun intended) :-)It was the classic recovery of data on a hard drive when the computer won't start up.Thank you for helping me out of a sticky situation.

I took my computer to a shop in Morayfield, I won't name them. I was told that I needed a new motherboard, and the cost to repair would be around $500. Something didn't feel right, so I thought I'd get a second opinion and called Spotty Dog. Iain asked me to bring the computer in, and said it was most likely something very simple. He looked at the PC while I waited, in front of me, and removed the RAM, cleaned the contacts, replaced it, and low and behold, my computer was fixed. I thanked him and asked how much, and he replied "don't worry about it, I didn't really do anything". So not only did I save $500, I received immediate service at no charge. How great is that? I have continued to use Spotty Dog ever since. A+++

I needed a new PC for my family business, and I was just going to buy off the shelf at one of the big retail stores. But after talking with Spotty Dog, I decided to go with a custom built PC. As Iain explained, we had the benefit of choosing what components were used and their quality. I have been very pleased with the resulting speed and performance, not to mention the reliability. I am so glad I didn't just buy what the retailers were trying to clear off the shelf.

We have used Iain (Spotty Dog Computers) for probably over 15 years. He has built & supplied us with many computers for both our business and personal use over that period. He has dealt with all our maintenance and repairs issues immediately, meaning his service is excellent. We consider his charges are very reasonable and will continue to use Spotty Dog Computers into the future.

I'm very pleased to be writing this review on Spotty Dog Computer Services. Firstly I cannot believe that such a talented web designer as Iain is a local, the web page he designed for me is out of this world and I still feel it's the best deal I've had.The after sales service is what I also like as Iain always makes himself available if I want changes done or things included and he always gives me good advice so I don't make any mistakes. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality, service and value for money, it ticks all the boxes for me. Eric Shields

Thanks to Iain from Spotty Dog Computer Services for his prompt service and excellent advice. When the home computer finally bit the dust, Iain gave me a fast assessment on the benefits of repairing versus replacement, and his direct advice and knowledge was refreshing. Iain had me up and running again with a new PC fully installed and operating in less than 24 hours. Highly recommended computer service provider.

We've been using Iain at Spotty Dog computers since moving to the Northside of Brisbane 4 nearly 5 years ago. He's thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced with a quick turn-a-round. We have sent a few people his way now, even people from the Southside who do the trip because he is just that good. You aren't going to find one of the shopping centre setups, here this week gone the next, Iain is a small business operator, home based been around for many years built on reputation.

Iain is very experienced in diagnosing a computer issue and issues are resolved quickly. Most importantly, he is honest, upfront and reliable and he provides a great service at a very reasonable cost both onsite and at his business.

I had an issue with my Outlook giving me an error message saying there was a problem connecting to the Gmail IMAP Server. I called Microsoft to see if they could fix it but they said they had no idea what was causing it. So I called Spotty Dog Computers and talked to Iain. He got me to take it to his office and leave it while he checked it out. To my surprise, later the same day I got a phone call telling me my Laptop was ready to pick up. You've gotta be happy with that kind of Service!!

WARNING ! To All Potential Website Customers -My Story -5 Months ago after searching through suitable Web Developers my wife and I settled on a Local Caboolture Computer Shop that promised they could not only supply the website that we needed, but that our website was guaranteed to have the WOW Factor.Previously they had fixed our computer and we where comfortable they would give us the wow site we wanted.Little did we realize that the WOW factor would refer to just how badly our website would be built and the Speed of our new $3500 website was the biggest Wow, Pages dropped out constantly,pages took over a minute at times to load and the site was breaking all over the place. It was unusable and so slow customers where leaving in droves.The money we paid took all of our resources and after 5 months left us with a site that was failing badly. Speed was our number one concern and here we had a site that was slower enough to make customers leave in droves.It was obvious we where losing customers and money because of the speed and page drop outs.We received a half built site that was amateur at best and completely useless.ENTER SPOTTY DOG- It was at this point where we sought the assistance of Iain from Spotty Dog Computers, as we simply had to get our site out of the current web developers hands and into someone that knew not only how to fix the speed but to set out our Website the way we wanted it.Iain not only managed to give us the site we wanted, his advice led us into building a site we are not only proud of, but our customers love it too.BEWARE- Just because your Local Computer Shop fixes computers, does not mean you will get an experienced Web designer or that they will produce what they promise in regards to building a website.SPOTTY DOG COMPUTERS - Guaranteed ! After dealing with several Developers I believe Spotty Dog Computers can deliver ANY website requirement needed, Iain has extensive knowledge in WordPress and this extensive knowledge is Impressive to say the least.Needless to say, Spotty Dog Computers now Host our Website, Maintain our Website and advise us on any changes we want to make in regards to Improvements.To say I am grateful we found Spotty Dog is an understatement.BUSINESS OWNERS NEEDING A WEBSITE - If you are looking for a business website or E-commerce store, then I offer you the chance to avoid my Mis-Fortune, give Iain from Spotty Dog Computers a call and save yourself a lot of money and heartache.If we had chosen Spotty Dog Computers at the beginning we would have saved hundreds of dollars and received the site we wanted in the first place only better.Thanks Iain for saving us and our website before it was too late.Needless to say we are now your biggest fan !

Iain at Spotty Dog Computer Services has just designed our website for Ali Cats Boutique Cat Boarding. We couldn’t be happier. Iain organised the web hosting and designed our website. We needed a website which we could edit and update regularly. Iain informed us on content requirements and how to update our site. He promptly replies to all our queries with accurate, concise, informative and illustrative instructions. We would highly recommend Iain at Spotty Dog Computer Services to anyone looking for reliable, local, supportive and affordable webhosting and website design.

What our customers say

Iain was great. We run a small business with a home office and when our computer died we contacted Iain. He provided exceptional service and we were back up and running in no time.

Thanks again for your fast service, great and honest advice and sense of humour.

I know I can rely on you to fix it every time.

I have been dealing with Iain for the last couple of years and feel very confident that I’m getting the correct advice and the products I need at the right price! I usually shop around but I trust Iain and his recommendations. I have passed Iain’s details onto my friends and can’t speak highly enough of him.

Iain is fantastic. He is very quick to respond to any of my requests, and is able to fix everything I have asked him to do. Extremely reliable, friendly and offers a professional service. I would highly recommend anybody to Spotty Dog for great reliable service every time.

I needed to upgrade my home PC and found what I thought was a great system and deal at a local Adelaide supplier. I decided to first run the specs past Iain who I know from my Army days, and I’m glad I did. Iain was not only able to inform me about the known problems with the listed items but was able to quote and supply a far superior system at an even better price. I will be using Spotty Dog for all my future PC requirements, and recommending them to everyone.

Just some of the quality suppliers we use in our Custom Built Computers

Corsair Cases and Power Supplies

Quality, Affordable, PC Cases and Power Supplies

Corsair are our “go to” supplier for PC Cases and Powers Supplies.

We have been using them for years now and find that the build quality and reliability is excellent.

Corsairs ranges of Cases and Powers supplies allows us to use quality parts and still meet the budget constraints of our customers.

Reliable, Fast, SSD Hard Drives and Memory

We love the Crucial range of SSD Hard Drives and Memory.

Having used several other well known brands over the years, and having a failure rate higher than we were comfortable with, we made the switch to the Crucial brand.

That was back in around 2015 or so, and we haven’t looked back since, and we just don’t like using any other brand if it can be helped.

Crucial SSDs and Memory
Deepcool Cooling Fans

Quality, Reliable, Cooling Fans

We are always on the lookout for better, more reliable products to use in our Custom Built PC’s.

Again, we were using another well known brand, but found that things like fan bearings were failing way more often than we were comfortable with.

Hence the move to Deepcool products.

Stylish, Functional, Quality, Keyboards and Mice

We just don’t bother using other brands when it comes to Keyboard’s and Mice.

In our opinion, you can’t go past the Logitech brand.

Logitech Keyboards and Mice
Gigabyte Motherboards and Video Cards

Quality, Reliable, Bulletprrof Motherboards and Video Cards

Where possible, we endeavour to use Gigiabyte Motheboards and Video Cards.

Over the years, Gigabyte products have proven to be very reliable, with outstanding quality and performance.

High Quality, Affordable Monitors

Wherever possible, we use BenQ Monitors.

Sometimes due to demand, we have to settle for other brands.

Whenever we use the BenQ brand, the customer is more than satisfied with the price, quality, and performance.

BenQ Monitors

Quality, Easy to Install, Printers

Over the years, we have used many brands of printers.

But one thing that became very evident was the “ease and simplicity of installation” of the Brother brand of printers.

Not only are they easier to install, but their price and quality is right up there with the other brands.

Quality and Affordable UPS’s

We have been using Chase Power UPS’s for many years now.

They are an Australian Company who provide us with outstanding products and service.

Chase Power are constantly undertaking further R & D to continually improve their products and range.

We don’t use anyone else for the supply of UPS’s.

Chase Power UPS's
LG DVDRW

Very Affordable and Reliable DVDRW’s

We have been using the LG brand of DVDRW’s for many many years now.

Originally we made the switch because the brand we were using, which perfored great and were very reliable, happened to also be very noisy.

Having switched to LG we have been using them ever since without a single failure.

Now that’s something you can’t ignore!!

Real support by real people

When you deal with Spotty Dog Computer Services, you are dealing with the Owner.

And when I deal with my Suppliers, I am dealing with real people.

Like you, it is very frustrating when you can’t pick up the phone and talk to someone.

There seems to be a shift towards only being able to contact someone via a contact form online.

We will always be a company where you can talk with us in person.
