The name might sound a little dated, but the bar for quality high-tech repairs is arguably higher in San Francisco than almost anywhere in the world. Lasertorium Office Systems remains a go-to for Hewlett-Packard, Lexmark, Brother International and other high-end electronics that are malfunctioning or otherwise cutting into workplace productivity. From paper jams to wear-and-tear to the kind of baffling diagnostic mysteries that send mere mortals into a blinding rage, the Outer Sunset's Lasertorium has been servicing the Bay's gadgets for 20 years, with reasonable prices for timely turnaround. Don’t expect much in the way of amenities or frills from this low-slung repair shop – or its sister location in the Financial District. Instead, rest easy in the knowledge that the experience held inside will have your machine up and running again in no time.
Of all the dreaded aspects of life in the internet age, dealing with tech support is probably the most universally loathed. It’s painful, and sometimes humiliating. So when dutiful calls to a manufacturer bring you to the brink of insanity, TechCollective comes to the rescue.

From restoring corrupted memory drives to keeping that dinosaur of a laptop in good working order, this worker-owned collective is the default team of troubleshooting all-stars, each with a stake in the endeavor. San Francisco isn’t the most tech-friendly city in the world simply because Google and Apple happen to be nearby; it’s because there are technicians like TechCollective who keep it all humming along.
