  1. Mike

    My old speccy had finally started to play up after 30 years, so I found Rudedog retros online and was glad I did, extremely knowledgeable and explained everything that had to be fixed and actually seemed to care about my computer as much as me! A great service from start to finish, thank you Mark especially, will highly recommend to all.

    Thanks to Mark for a superb service.

    My experience dealing with RudeDogRetros and Mark in particular has been excellent.

    He answered all my questions and offered advice that I felt I could trust. He even sorted a few smaller ‘issues’ free of charge!

    I would highly recommend Mark and RudeDog and will definitely be using them again if the need arises.

    Thank you !!

    Mark did a superb job resurrecting my daughter’s Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2. The work required was carried out speedily and efficiently. I cannot praise RUDEDOGRETROS enough.

    After getting my Spectrum down out the loft after over 20 years I knew it would need a bit of a refurbish, to say the least! Once I packaged it up and sent it off Mark provided me with a comprehensive breakdown of the activities he recommended, including a number of different approaches dependent on my requirements/budget.

    Along with the refurb I wanted to understand what modifications could be made to get my Spectrum working with modern hardware. Mark provided a wealth of information and took me through all the available options.

    After a short period of time my Spectrum was back with me. It works better now than when I first took it out the box 30+ years ago! I highly recommend Rudedog Retros! The work they carried out and the advice offered was top notch. All turned around within a week. Great price and even better service.

    Many Thanks,

      Hi Sheff,

      I’m really glad that you’re happy with the repairs. Loved having your machine on the bench – and it was a pleasure getting to know you a little!

    I highly recommend this service. Mark was very accommodating and explained clearly exactly what work was needed and the likely cost. An over thirty-year old machine that had seen better days went in, a thing of beauty came out, running and looking like it had just left the factory. Very happy customers here. I wouldn’t for a second hesitate to recommend Rude Dog Retros and would use this service again in a heartbeat if needed! Superb work! Very happy customers here.

    I had recently bought a ZX Spectrum 128+ from Ebay and it was in need of a bit TLC.

    I asked for recommendations on a Facebook group and before long Rudedog Retros were introduced to me. I fired an email off, and within a short space of time Mark from Rudedog was going through the options that my poorly Spectrum would need to bring it back to full health.

    I packaged everything up and sent it off hoping that it wasn’t going to take an age as some repair companies couldn’t look at my Spectrum for up to 6 weeks. A couple of days later Mark messaged me to go through what he was going to do, he sounded very knowledgeable and a few days later he was back on to say it was all ready and he went through the return options. In exactly a week my Spectrum was back…… Working absolutely spot on, Mark even recommended a new RGB cable and sent me a link to order one. My Spectrum has never been better – Super sharp display, no background hiss. Everything cleaned and professionally serviced. I can’t recommend Rudedog Retros highly enough. Fantastic service at an amazing price.

    Many Many Thanks

    Dave Brown
