Viruses, Malware, spyware oh my!

Apr 21, 2015 | No Comments

What to do about Viruses, Malware, and spyware. Unfortunately the internet can be a dangerous place. We get all kinds of people with infected computers everyday. Anything from just some popups and redirects to infections that hijack personal files. Although I couldn’t say there is one magic protection software that can protect you 100% there are allot of […]

Solid state hard drives vs standard hard drives

Apr 21, 2015 | No Comments

Solid state hard drives are slowly becoming more affordable. In the past for most people the cost per Gigabyte for solid state drives didn’t seem necessary. The speed difference and the fact that their are no moving parts has always incited me. When SSDs first started popping up on the market for consumers they were […]

Computer repair on the Outer Banks

Apr 21, 2015 | No Comments

I was surprised shortly after starting OBCR how much of a need their is for computer repair services here. I worked at Staples for 3 years as their lead technician before I started this. I can’t say any names but I heard some horror stories of high prices and lost data. Since I have started […]

About Outer Banks Computer Repair

My name is Tim Lusk. I started OBCR here on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2009. My goal with this company is to help bridge the gap between the known and the unknown in regards to technology. Starting this company has been one of the greatest jobs I have ever had! I don’t have to listen to a boss telling me to sell! sell! sell! I get to make up my own rules and am able to provide for myself and my employees in a way that is fair to the customer. I started my fun with computers in 1995. I was hooked; I could record music, video games, and art all on one device. Even when I was a kid I used to take apart everything I had and try and upgrade it, make it better somehow or just fix things. So of course I had to upgrade and tinker with my computer. I got my first awesome windows 98 Gateway PC (big bulky off white, came in a big cow print box). Right out of the box I had issues running my recording software. Believe it or not the frustration trying to figure out why everything was running slow on a brand new fast PC felt good. Getting to the bottom of the issue, doing research online ordering what I needed and seeing the results made me so happy. I went around upgrading my friend’s computers. I loved it!

Between way back then and today I have worked for many companies, traveled, and received lots of great training! None of that compares to my move to the Outer Banks, and starting this business. Being able to get back to how it was in the beginning. Helping people with their technology! A lot has changed but the main issues are the same. Helping people from getting overcharged, frustrated, buying the wrong devices, lose data, and wasted time.

Thank you too all our customers! To our new customers, stop in and see us, we will be happy to help you!

My cell phone's charging port was no longer working. I called OBCR, they said that they'd be able to repair it. As it turned out, the port was simply clogged with dust. The repair was completed in about five minutes. The people were awesome and the service was exceptional. OBCR was simply outstanding!

They fixed my Toyota's LCD display and digitizer that someone servicing our car broke and saved me a ton of money and a couple of trips to a dealer. I felt they went above and beyond and am very appreciative for their time and trouble getting the right parts.

while visiting the OBX a year ago, my iPhone11 Pro fell in the surf for about 30 seconds. It seemed fine initially, but was dead a few hours later. The potential of loosing photos & videos was my primary concern. Oct 19, 2022 i emailed OBCR and he said he’d take a look at it. Oct 21 i dropped my phone off. Oct 24 got an email that they replaced the screen and cleaned up the water penetration. Oct 25 picked up the iphone. couldn’t be happier. phone still works great a year later. the prices they charged were fantastic. they didn’t try to upsell me on additional services, but when i asked if they could also replace the battery, they did so. they were upfront about what could and couldn’t be repaired. and finally, when i got my phone back i went to settings to see when my apps were last accessed, they all showed that it had been October 19. Meaning after OBCR repaired my phone they didn’t snoop around opening up my apps. I would trust this company again if i ever needed their services.

my cell phone was unable to charge due to sand in the charging port. Outer Banks was able to remove debri without much difficulty thus saving a costly repair or replacement phone. THANKS!
