Welcome to Hardware Guys, Number one IT Company on Kauai
My name is Greg and I’ve been working with computers since 1995. My first computer had dial-up internet. Over the years I’ve tweaked numerous name brand computers, built water-cooled computers and several gaming computers. I founded Hardware Guys Inc. on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii, in 2006. I strive to always provide exceptional customer service in our shop and with our remote support service plans. We also offer hard drives, memory, video cards, etc. on-hand locally.
Hardware Guys, LLC is located at 2970 Haleko Rd Suite 104, Lihue, HI 96766
I was born and raised in New Hampshire and spent a few years in the Sacramento area of California. In 2005, my mother took an early retirement and moved to the Garden Island of Kauai. Needless to say, I followed. In 2011, my mother decided to move back to California. In 2015 while visiting her, I was lucky to meet my soul-mate, Crystal. We have been together since the day we met. We had a purebred black Labrador retriever, who passed away late last year named Abbey. She was a big part of our family, and we hope to bring another loving pup into our hearts.
How & Why I opened Hardware Guys
Upon moving to Kauai in 2005, I discovered the lack of computer repair on the island. Furthermore, there were very few options having computer parts available locally. Most parts needed to be ordered online and have at least a one to two week delivery time. Not to mention the exorbitant cost of shipping to the island. Being the computer guy I am, with the need to have parts available at my fingertips and the desire to start my own business, I founded Hardware Guys, LLC.
After high school I worked for Hewlett Packard where I learned how to build computers from scratch, test, and diagnose computers for viruses, mechanical problems, etc. Whatever I didn’t learn on the job was self-taught through trial and error or by researching on the Internet. I built my first custom computer in 2000. After discovering the art of water-cooling, I built my first water cooled computer in 2007. In addition, I enjoy playing computer games. In 1995, when I got my first computer, I began playing Doom. Since then, I have played Half Life, Quake, Everquest, and currently World of Warcraft. Over the years, having a top of the line gaming computer has become a necessity.
