Are you worried about your privacy? You should. Data mining is one of the fastest growing industries in the tech world. With your data companies can manipulate, sell and influence your decisions in every aspect of your life. Ask us how you can better protect yourself!
The technicians at Spacebar has been building custom gaming machines since AMD Socket A to LGA 1151 rev 2, Coffee Lake chipsets. Our technicians are typically a little O.C.D. in cable managements, we like to think of that as our strength.
With the ever increasing number of apple users in the market, viruses are beginning to manifest in the macOS platform. At Spacebar, we don't just remove the infections. Our goals are to trace the source, educate our clients and provide a strategical approach to prevent reinfection. We believe research & education are our client's best defense.
Wether you have just purchased a brand new Dell laptop, or an older MacBook Pro, there are bound to be unnecessary programs running in the background hogging the processing power. Doing a system cleanup is like spring cleaning and things always work better around an organized home.
Data extraction & migration is the act of accessing your personal files, saving them, and transferring them to a new destination. It is very much like moving in real life, technically easy but could be a major pain and a hair pulling moment if it's done incorrectly. At Spacebar we have been helping our client's access their homes without their keys, moving their furniture to a different location and even uprooting the entire house to a completely different neighborhood. We like to think our that attention to detail and respect of our customer's privacy makes us stand out.
Wireless printers are great for convenience. When they work. Most wireless printers require some setup and this can take up a good portion of your day, so why not sit back, relax and let us do the work for you?

Get your products sent to our location, let us make sure everything is how it should be and provide you local support. That's what we do and that's why we are different.
“Hi, I’m Gabe, the head technician.
After being in the computer repair industry for a little over a decade I have come to realize that it’s often not just the skills that make you a great repairman, but how you communicate with your clients. I always tell my clients that I’m like them when I walk into an auto repair shop. The only valuable information I could provide them is when the last time I had my oil changed. Odds are that I will be clueless when they ask me any specific questions about my car. That is why I only bring my car to my guy, Ian. Someone that knows his stuff and I know I can trust.
At Spacebar, we are inspired to be like Ian. We know how frustrating, intimidating and confusing it can be when you have a computer problem. For instance, when you’ve lost all your sentimental pictures to a defective hard drive that wasn’t backed up, or why you keep getting spam in your BEX email. While we can’t always promise you we will deliver the news you would like to hear, we can promise you that we will be there with you to guide you through the process as best we can. Let us be your guy.
Our mission is to ensure that everyone in the community gets the opportunity to access information. We believe technology is a human right and that’s why Spacebar has reserved much of its space for the community, from using our computer to check your emails, to throwing down on a game of Mortal Combat. Above all Spacebar is a place for people. We understand that a person can fall behind and times can get tough. Ask us about special discount rates for senior citizens, single parents, temporarily unemployed, or struggling students.
OMG !!! What an experience! I would highly recommend spacebar-Gabe to everyone I know! He was thorough and explained all that he had to do and took his time with me! You do NOT experience that at other computer repair stores. Please keep his business in mind when you have computer needs! Thanks, Gabe !!!!!!!!!
I’ve had issues with my laptop and other laptops and everytime I take them into the Apple store I always get some insane price quote and blatant lies about the product. I’ve been using spacebar for the past three years for all my issues with computers and he has been very honest, kind, and fast with his service. Unbeatable prices and very friendly business owner.
I would HIGHLY recommend Spacebar for your computer needs. I was recently hacked after purchasing what I thought was a legitimate Norton anti-virus online. It was a horrific experience. Not only did Spacebar save my computer and data but they helped me remain calm and put things in perspective through the ordeal. I am now educated on ways to protect my photos and documents in the future and my computer is back up and running. I am grateful for their prompt, expert service that I will continue to use for all my computer issues.
Gabe helped us upgrade all of the machines in our network that were still running Windows XP. He also rebuilt a terminal server for much less than his competitors quoted. Once you establish a relationship with Spacebar it's like having your own private tech expert on call, ready to help when you need it most. I highly recommend Gabe and his company for any info-tech work you may need, They do a great job with websites too!
This is the ONLY place I will go for my tech needs. The customer service is outstanding and the follow up was much appreciated. Gabe really seems not only to care about providing excellent service , but he also took the time to reach me on a personal level and answer all of my questions.
Gabe was very professional and upfront with his computer advice and cost. He was able to fit me into his schedule and fix my computer in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using his service and I will definitely be using his service again if needed.
My first visit to Spacebar was very rewarding. Gabe was able to retrieve from a defective hard drive 218 Gs of valuable reference photos for paintings that I feared were lost. He is extremely personable, informative, and efficient in getting the job done in record time. In addition, his fees are reasonable. All in all, a positive experience.
So thankful I discovered this place in downtown Sylvania. By far, the best computer service I've ever had, and well worth the trip for anyone in the Toledo area. Having a brand new laptop suffer a water spill, I expected the inevitable. But taking it into Gabe to diagnose the problem, and provide an easy solution was the best thing I could have done. Professional, reasonable price, and personal service. Took time to explain each detail, and provided consistent communication, phone updates, and e-mailed diagnostic updates with pictures. Above and beyond. Forget Geeksquad, hit the Spacebar.
My family has known Gabe the owner of Space Bar for years after first meeting him at one of his previous work places . As at that time he may have been just an employee, but he was a master at diagnosing a computer problem . He has always been very considerate and polite. I don't usually rate or review anyone, but this is the exception to the rule. If he can't repair it (junk it) or at least take his advice as to what to do next. Believe me you won't find a more knowledgeable computer person. Gabe could have continued to work for others and never have shown his true knowledge of his ability to repair, build or diagnose computer issues. But he stepped out on faith that he could compete with the best...and my family and friends are delighted he did !!! Keep up the excellent work Space Bar...... Jim/Flo Family
We are always so pleased when working with Gabe and Spacebar! We have used Spacebar for a variety of questions, projects and work and he always provides such great and superior solutions. He is more than pleasant and helpful in the service he provides and we are so thankful to have him on Main Street in Sylvania! For all your computer needs we HIGHLY recommend.
Gabe has been a lifesaver countless times. Fabulous service and technical expertise. Love having Spacebar as our Downtown Sylvania business neighbor. Check out his very unique office on Main Street.
After previously taking my 2010 iMac desktop to Geek Squad where I was told they could not repair it for me, I brought it into Spacebar for a second opinion. I was referred to them for their expertise with Apple computers. Not only were they able to fix my startup problem by replacing the hard drive, but they were also able to transfer over all of the files and photos I had saved on the computer. My computer now runs perfectly - their service was quick, efficient, and extremely affordable. I would highly recommend them and would definitely do business with them again, for any and all Apple computer service and repair issues.
"The team at Space Bar designed our website and produced a commercial for the company I work for, Estate Jewelers. To say I was pleased is an understatement. Gabe and his team are such a pleasure to work with, so professional and have such great style. We are completely happy with the work that Space Bar did for us and plan to use them in the future. Would recommend!"
"The only place I’ll take my computer. Gabe is the best at what he does. The first time I did business with him was for a dead WiFi card on my laptop. He could have taken advantage of my lack of knowledge and charge me a lot for replacing it. Instead, he gave me an alternative that was much cheaper since my laptop was an older model. I don’t hesitate to refer anyone that asks to go to him."
Spacebar is the place to go for everything computer related and a wonderful addition to downtown Sylvania! Gabe (the owner) knows his stuff and is very patient and kind. I have needed lots of help with an old laptop. He has gone above and beyond to get it running perfectly and has even given me lessons to help me understand computers. The turn around is quick if it is taking longer than expected, he calls to let you know and his rates are very reasonable. Don't hesitate to call him, you won't be sorry!
I honestly wouldn't take my computer anywhere else for repairs. Gabe is thoughly knowledgeable and works with a high degree of integrity. Plus his window display is always a sight to behold! A+++ for Spacebar!
Spacebar has definitely been my best computer repair/troubleshooting experience. The owner, Gabe, kept me updated by email on the status of my laptop throughout its repair, and even provided some helpful background info so I better understood what was the issue. I was pleased with how quickly I was able to have a fixed, restored laptop back in hand, especially considering that it was over a holiday weekend. Spacebar is also a great supporter of local art and I had a great first impression of the place as soon as I walked in the door. There's a welcoming and unique atmosphere that immediately sets it apart from other computer service places.
