In lieu of purchasing a new 17" MacBook Pro (that would have a smaller screen and smaller SSD for $3,200+ to acquire the functionality I have now, I took the $179.99 + shipping risk and sent my failed 17" MBP to Reballing Genius LLC. It was promptly repaired and returned! Reballing Genius LLC provided excellent communications, excellent service and excellent value for a wonderful result! Highly recommended! Full Context Review: ----------- My "early 2011" 17" quad-cord i7 MacBook Pro failed two years ago and was repaired by Apple via their graphic chip/logic board failure program -- Apple support admitting that the solder on the graphic chip/logic board will heat-up and cause the graphic chip/logic board to fail and they will replace the logic board under the program. Recently, my identical MBP 17" failed with the same symptoms; i.e.: b&w checkered screen, then on force boot, it will start with the "purplish background w/Purple & Gray Vertical stripes", start to boot, then keeps restarting -- after zapping the PRAM 2x, it just shuts off via restarting on reboot. Unfortunately, Apple discontinued their repair program and offer no solution. I contacted a trusted MacBook Pro repair facility that I've used in the past and asked them if they could repair my MBP by replacing the logic board or other method -- they said "NO", that all replacement boards are also defective and there is no point in doing the repair, and that my the 17" MBP that Apple repaired under the cited program, will soon fail! (...which is a reasonable response if all you are doing is using Apple's replacement parts). I learned about Reballing Genius LLC ( https://ps3specialist.com/reballing-services/ ) and read their extensive explanation on how they have developed a repair procedure for the MPB's logic board/video chip -- yet was skeptical given what I've heard and the rampant misinformation on the topic. In lieu of purchasing a new MPB (that would have a smaller screen and smaller SSD for $3,200+ to acquire the functionality I have now, I took the $179.99 + shipping risk and sent my failed 17" MBP to Reballing Genius LLC. It was promptly repaired and returned! Reballing Genius LLC provided excellent communications, excellent service and excellent value for a wonderful result! Highly recommended!

Here we offer the repair service of your broken laptop at a flat rate repair for any of these problems; this service will include the following:
* Laptop disassembly and extracting the mainboard for rework and GPU chip reballing.
*Completely detach the laptop graphics processor from the motherboard (applies to all kind of graphics chip including NVIDIA or ATI, completely removing the old solder that started to crack and cause bad soldering points, clean the chip and refresh all cold points on it, same procedure will be done to the motherboard, the GPU will be Reballed using LEADFREE solder which is environmentally friendly, safe and long lasting, then it will be reattached in place to the motherboard again ( There is a lot of misleading information about leaded solder and claims that leaded solder is a better quality, our experience with hundreds of this repair is that reballing the graphics chip using leaded solder will only last for about six months and that is why we use leadfree solder, it proved to last in most cases for about two years and that is why we are using it in this particular repair in spite of the cheaper price of leaded solder and its more easy to use in the process due to its lower melting point which makes the reballing process much easier) .
* Complete reassembly of the laptop and testing it thoroughly to make the sure the problem is resolved.
*This procedure is very complicated, very professional and we won't be able to perform it unless we are using TOP OF THE LINE MACHINES WITH THE LATEST AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY AND FULLY COMPUTER CONTORLLED PROCESS FOR MAXIMUM ACCURACY AND BEST RESULTS, with this procedure your laptop should run for many years trouble free.

IMPORTANT NOT: WE CAN REPLACE ANY DAMAGED PORTS LIKE SCREEN PORT ( WHERE THE SCREEN CONNECTOR GOES ON THE MOTHERBOARD) AND ANY OTHER DAMAGED CONNECTOR OR COMPONENT ( YOU WILL NEED TO SEND PICTURE FOR AN ESTIMATE REPAIR COST).
WE also replace the screen cable at a $100 extra cost for parts and labor unless it is the only issue then regular service cost applies.
In rare cases reballing the GPU will fix the graphics problem but will not fix Kernel issues related to the CPU and in this case the CPU has to be reballed and that will cost an extra $140
The onboard graphics memory chips greatly affects the performance of the computer and to improve poor performance the graphics memory chips will need to be reballed and that cost an extra $75.
The laptop will be repaired ,fully tested and shipped back within three to five days of receiving it unless it needs replacing parts and after your approval of the part cost it can take up to 10 days to be repaired and shipped back .

I have a 15” MacBook Pro 2011 that had the video chip problem that causes distortion all over the lcd. Making it unusable. These guys brought it back to life with a year warranty. I couldn’t be happier. The repair was clean, I will be sending more to them as I fix Macs for a living.
It took me a while to get back with my review but this guy is awesome. His communication is great. My email at work wouldn’t let me email back and so I gave him my number to text me with my instructions and my personal email to communicate. I love my 17 MacBook because I have bad eyes. I work with lots of photos and was lost when my screen kept blinking and all. My machine came back while I was on vacation and I finally got back up and running. He sent me a report on my machine and it’s just like new. Love you guys and all you did to get back up and running. This guy is the real deal and no rip off. He’s a scientist of electronics. If your having ang hardware problems with your machines. He can fix it. Thank you Khaled
My MacBook Pro 17 inch late 2011 had a graphics chip failure. It resulted in the laptop starting up with a chime and then only displaying a black or blue-gray screen before automatically shutting down. I purchased Khaled's chip reballing service and placed a Rush order. As promised, my Mac was repaired on the day of arrival and shipped back same day. The MacBook arrived in excellent condition, and it functions again as perfectly as it did before the failure. Khaled also provided proof of repair by sending me an email with my Mac's screen images and he also included benchmark tests. I very highly recommend Khaled's reballing service. As an FYI, the Apple Genius Bar refused to repair my Mac. Other repair services stated that 2011 MacBook Pros cannot be repaired. In an Apple forum, this graphics problem was discussed as a frequently occurring failure. A discussion contributor said the could correct the problem by baking the logic board at 170 F for 7 min in an oven. However, this heat exposure puts enormous stress on electronic components and may lead to failure. The re-soldering of the chip, called reballing, is the much better way to go!
After over a year of trouble shooting, giving up, and coming back to researching what I can do to fix my late 2011 MBP 15" Unibody I stumbled onto Reballing geniuses. I have to admit I was a little reluctant to mail my baby to Rancho Cucamonga. Long story shortened, I tracked my package, when it finally got to Cali it was mailed out THE SAME DAY repaired. I got my MBP back in perfect working order. This is incredible. Thank you Reballing Geniuses!
I wanted to write this review from my MacBook when I got it back! This dude is awesome. The customer service experience: A+. Perfect. Communication: again, A+. You really can't ask for more. Email, Facebook, his website, etc. He reaches out and responds through all channels. He answered all of my questions, and he even gave me some good advice to run with! He shipped my MacBook back to me more protected than I sent to him! NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR ELECTRONIC LOVES! ESPECIALLY NOT BEFORE YOU SEND THEM TO THIS GUY RIGHT HERE!! Amazing experience from start to finish.....
Communication was INCREDIBLE from before I paid, to after I got it back. Unbelievable to see such good customer service these days! USPS damaged the package, and these guys went the extra mile to even find the part that I needed that USPS damaged and install it for me. Very classy guys, and excellent price! 10/10!
Absolutely delighted with the service I received. The display on my 17 inch macbook had stopped functioning. I dropped it off in person, and was able to watch the repair and take it home (working again) within a couple of hours. Well worth the journey. Thank you!
Simply excellent service! Very happy to have found that this was even possible. And that someone could actually fix it. It was no decision at all to have fix an expensive and still fast 2011 15' Pro. Highly recommended!
He really is a genius! My 2010 MacBook Pro is back to working like new! This had become a very expensive paper weight. No one else could repair it for less than the cost of a new one.
BOTH my wife's and my MacBook Pro's were shutting down frequently when switching to the Dynamic graphics chip. NOW they both work like new. The service was quick and well worth the expense.
Macbook was totally useless.. Alive again after quick reballing.
I had horizontal red lines on my screen and my Macbook Pro 15 2011 with AMD Radeon 6750M would occasionally freeze. I thought of bringing this to Apple Repair but after reading some forum discussions in other support sites, I went on to find a reballing services and found this Reballing Genius guy - Khaled. This guy had brought a second life of my trusted MBP. It's been 4 months now and my system is working well. My advice: Don't bring your Macbook Pro to an Apple Repair if your graphics display is getting cranky, just have it repaired thru Khaled and he'll make it work for you. No need to spend for a new logic board.
The turnaround was quick and my laptop is as good as new. Saved me from having to buy a new laptop. Would highly recommend this service.
Khaled does amazing work! He reballed the GPU on my MacBook Pro 15" Late 2011. The system runs great now, cooler than it did prior to being reballed and it's working perfectly. He did this repair basically same day for me, truly amazing customer service! If your MBP has this issue, don't buy a used board that will probably have the same issue eventually...let Khaled reball your GPU, you MBP will run faster and cooler than when it was brand new!
My machine was crashing 2+ times per day. I took my laptop to visit Khaled and he let me watch the process. Pretty amazing he figured it out and has it down to a science. Laptop works great now and 10 days so far and no crashing. This is much better solution than buying new card for at least twice the price. Thanks Khaled
I emailed and talked with Khaled several times before sending my son's macbook pro. I had gotten him a used macbook as I can't afford a new one for him as he is getting ready for college. My son said that the macbook was restarting randomly and with a GPU panic. After seeing no good solution as it was out of warranty, I decided to give Khaled's services a shot. It's been several weeks and there have been zero issues. Khaled gave us solid advice and I have to say that I was skeptical at first, but not anymore. I have a daughter that is a sophomore in high school and I will have to get ready to buy her a macbook at some point. I know that if I do, I will have someone that I can count on to help fix a similar issue without hesitation. Thanks Khaled! You are the best! Oh, he also sent it back the next day!
My Macbook Pro is alive and kicking! It boots up, works silent without the fan turning on, and is just as fast as my new 2015 model! Faster than I can remember it ever was! Fantastic! Sent it from Norway and received it back home after approximately 3 weeks. Recommended! A++++
Khaled has performed what I did not think was possible. I initially purchased my MPB for about $3000 and it worked flawlessly for 4 years. I made the switch from PC's and Windoze 4 years ago and have never looked back. I considered my MBP to be the best computer that I had ever owned (second only to my Commodore 64), until it developed the dreaded GPU issue. At first the problem was intermittent, but it progressively got worse to the point that it would no longer boot, even in recovery mode. I was ready to sell it for parts on eBay but them after some research I read about this "reballing" technique, I decided to give it it try. I had almost nothing to lose. I must admit that I was skeptical but I figured I'd risk $200. Sending it to Apple was out of the question, not only because of the cost, but also because I had read that even if they did repair it, that they would use the same defective logic board that led to the problem in the first place. Anyway, I shipped it off across the country to Khaled and had it back in about a week. I was amazed when it booted up right out of the box just like nothing had ever been wrong with it. The ultimate test was when I had Safari running with 40 tabs open AND Photoshop running at the same time and the fans remained silent! Photoshop used to put a strain on the computer even before it had completely broken. Also, it used to run so hot that it burned my skin and now the bottom of the computer is cool. Amazing! Even if it only lasts another year or so, then it will have been well worth it. Thanks Khaled!
I can't BELIEVE how easy this was and what a great job he did! I could not be happier!!!
I am a return customer with a second MacBook belonging to my grandson. It is working flawlessly. As with my previous experience I found the communication with Khaled excellent and timely. The repair was done in a timely manner.
My 2011 MacBook Pro was headed for the trash heap, afflicted with serious graphics issues that mapped quite directly onto the well documented issues so many MBP owners have dealt with since the launch of this model. I was fortunate to come across PS3 specialist, and when I read the description of the repair service and the many positive reviews, I did not hesitate to make the purchase. Instructions for shipment were forthcoming and 8 days later, my MBP arrived by FedEx. It runs as if it were a new machine, and there is no hint of any of the previous graphics issues. If you are reading this, don't hesitate. You will be very pleased with the results!
Seems to have repaired any flakiness that my macbook was showing prior to repair
Khaled, you cut my Apple repair bill in half, and the repaid was even better quality and faster. I emailed you before I purchased with my computer's specific problems and you confirmed the issue very quickly. Within just a week I had my computer 100% fixed. I can't thank you enough for fixing my computer!
Khaled, you're a f**king genius. Good job, buddy. Not sure if I'll buy another Apple computer. What a handful. I was about to step down to my trusty Apple Lisa stored in my parent's garage. But no, now I'm back in the modern world thanks to the PS3SPECIALIST, Khaled. Don't worry, I'm gonna tell everyone about this. I may get slapped a couple of times when I mention "Reballing" to a girl at the bar but it will be worth it. Cheers.
The repair of my MacBook Pro logic board was done in one day. Communications with Khaled were excellent with quick responses to my email questions. In addition to repairing the logic board Khaled identified a problem with the battery swelling and damage to the trackpad. He repaired the trackpad for a nominal fee. My MacBook Pro is now fully functional. Based on my 43 years experience in electronics R&D I know that the best way to permanently repair a high density ball grid array is by re-balling.
Khaled is simply the best! When my MBP 17 (early 2011) started having problems while I was using Photoshop, I did some research and found Khaled. He responded to all my questions very quickly and clearly. I happen to live pretty close to his location, and asked if I could take my laptop to him in person instead of shipping it, and he kindly agreed. Khaled is such a sweet and knowledgable person, who is very passionate about what he does. He invited me to see his process, and walked me through every step of what he was doing. He has all the specialized machines and tools, and he skillfully revived my poor overworked computer from the dead, better than new! He even cleaned the masses of gunk and dust clinging to the insides of my computer, and taught me how to change the battery because mine was starting to warp. He also showed me where I can buy an upgrade for my aging hard drive. This has been a wonderful experience. In about an hour, Khaled not only fixed my computer, but also taught me a lot of useful info. No productivity lost at all! I was afraid my computer would be out of commission for a week or more. This repair saved me thousands of dollars because I was thinking maybe it's time for me to get a new computer. Now my computer is back to its former glory, and after I replace the battery and upgrade the hard drive, it will be unstoppable! Thank you Khaled! I am extremely satisfied, and my computer is running smoothly again.
I sent the computer on Wednesday and through tracking discovered it arrived to ps3specialist on Friday. That very same day I received shipping confirmation that my computer was on its way back to me. I was floored. When I received it, I tested it, and have been working with it ever since. I thank him greatly, and it definitely saved more money than sending it to apple for repair. He is highly recommended.
Turned around within 24 hours, and processed it right away. Shipping was great and timely. Have been using it for 2 weeks and it is working flawlessly. So glad I went with you and saved lots of money over Apple replacing the logic board. Even then, it would not have been guaranteed to work. Thanks too for answering my questions and responding very quickly. Would recommend your service to others with Macbook Pro 2011 with graphic issues.
Im very glad i went with Khaled's reballing service. I was hesitant to send my Macbook Pro (early 2011) off but i'm very glad I did. Khaled responded to emails very quickly. He reballed and shipped my computer back to me the day he received it. I recommend this reballing service to anyone with the GPU problem. Thanks Khaled!
My MacBook Pro 17 Late 2011 was having onscreen corruption when running graphic intensive apps. Sent it to Khaled and he reballed the GPU as soon as he received it that day. He even emailed me before and after pics of the repair job. He shipped it back the same day. Arrived in perfect condition. Everything worked as it should. No corruption after hours of graphic benchmarking. Completely satisfied with the reball service. If you are hesitant about sending your MacBook for reballing, don't be. It will be the best repair job it ever had. Thank you Khaled!
I went to his place and saw all the process fixing my laptop. Now my MBP 2011 is good again. Thanks to him :)
I must confess I was very hesitant to do a reball on my MBP 15', it took me aprox 2 to 3 weeks of doing my research online and PS3 specialist looked like the most promising alternative, I used my computer for music production and wanted to give it another chance before spending $2500 on a new one. Communication and turnaround time was excellent, computer is been working for 2 weeks already. I would recommend this company if you want to bring back to life your computer. I usually don’t do a lot of reviews but this guy deserves its credit for it, not sure how long it will last but with a 1 year warranty I feel confident he wouldn’t offer it if his successful rate wasn’t good. Thanks for fixing my computer!! JD Garcia.
My MacBook Pro started acting up with the dreaded "Black Screen." Having researched heavily I was well aware that my nVidea graphics card required "rebelling." No one near me performed this service. I found ps3specialist.com and sent my laptop away. Like so many others have said, I rely heavily on my macbook and was extremely nervous to part with it; even though it was as useful as a paperweight. I purchased the service through the webpage and although on a Saturday, within minutes I had a reply from Khaled. When I forwarded my tracking number as instructed, I received a real reply not auto generated. What was even more amazing is that Khaled received the macbook at 12:53 on Friday and had it fixed and return shipped by 7 PM that same evening. Although we are opposite coasts I received my macbook back 3 business days later. It works like new, and obviously the fans and heat sinks were cleaned also because the macbook is running cooler too. Thank you for such great service at an affordable price. If you are looking for a similar service Khaled at ps3specialist.com is the real deal.
When I sent the 2011 MacBook Pro, I wrote to khaled and talk to him he said it will take few days to fix it. Then came home on 3rd day. All fixed up, I put a new SSD and installed Mavericks with USB and it worked like a charm. My Mac runs at 40c normal and heavy task about 80C. I would recommend this to everybody who has problem with 2011 Macbook Pro graphics card.
From Canada, I sent my MBP2011-15" to Khaled on Nov 6, Khaled fixed it and tested it overnight and shipped it back next day.he sent me images of the test. I am really happy to have my computer back, running quick and reliably. I have signed the various class-action lawsuits against Apple, but I am not going to wait for litigation, when I need my Mac daily! Apple has lost an Evangelist in me, though. And Khaled is my Mac's saviour. Thanks, my friend, for your great service.
Khaled is very skilled and very kind. For me the process was seamless. I live relatively close to his repair shop and he allowed me to bring my 17" 2011 Macbook Pro (with the infamous GPU problem) and watch him perform the reballing of the GPU in person. He definitively performs a reballing service and not a reflow or "easy-bake-oven" method on your logicboard. His setup is amazing and he is very familiar with the components, screws, connectors etc. of the Macbook Pro. He first diagnosed the GPU problem with an intense 3D graphics benchmarking program. Within seconds my screen split in half, then thirds, then back to half. It was obviously breaking/broken. He had the motherboard out and ready to remove the faulty solder in less than 5 minutes. He also thoroughly cleaned the fans and insides of the disassembled laptop. He explained the whole process as he was working. This can be seen on his Facebook page. After the entire reballing process, he reran the benchmarking program and the graphics just flowed over my Macbook screen without glitching or even a stutter. He then restarted my computer with my hard drive, and kindly gave the recommendation to replace my hard drive soon, as it was performing much slower than his testing hard drive. I probably would not have noticed this fact, because to me my computer is going much faster and smoother today. I have been running games and HD videos for hours today without the GPU temps climbing above 60C. In my opinion, this is the fix you should be doing on your Macbook Pro GPU problems. I highly recommend Khaled and his service!
Khaled was great to deal with: the work was done very quickly and he sent photos to show the before and after. He reballed a 13" MBP for me, which isn't one of the models with the infamous GPU issues, but was showing the same display noise. Clearly the reballing was necessary! The only downer was that this shipped to/from Canada and the CBSA taxed me $25 due to the cost of the repair! Was quite an expensive repair in the end, but cheaper than Apple's ridiculous estimate (that would probably not have lasted). And I'd rather give my money to Khaled than rewarding Apple for a bad product!
I had the intergated graphics issue that Apple has thus far been silent on. Sent it in and he turned it around over the weekend. I've had it for about a week now and it's been working perfectly. Highly recommended!
I had some initial concerns sending my trusted laptop across the country to have such a delicate procedure done. Communication was excellent throughout the repair, allaying many of my fears. I received my computer in excellent condition. If anything, not only is it working again, I think it is faster than it is when it left! I highly recommend this service.
I just wanted to say that Khaled reballed my gpu. Like everyone else's 2011 17inch, soon the solder points gave way due to the heat problems. Been working like a champ/new for months now so I logged back into the website to give a thumbs up. In 3 years when I expect the computer to need another reballing, Khaled is the only person I will give my computer to! I see the price went up a little though. Hope it goes back down, as minimal as it is but still would not deter me to only use Khaled for any reballing, no matter what the system/unit that needs it. Thank you Khaled!
I have an early 2011 Macbook pro and it started slowing down. After a couple months I couldn't log in. After a few tries to get it into safe mode black lines started showing up. So I decided to look online and found this service. So I decided to give it a shot after reading the reviews. I sent it in and got it back ten days later. My computer runs like brand new! I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much Khaled!
My wife's Early 2011 MacBook Pro had the same problem as mine (just over 3 years after we purchased them). Plain white screen after restarting - nothing else. Khaled's quality and speed of service are amazing. It has been working fine since we received it. Couldn't be more pleased.
i got my mid2010 macbook fixed a few weeks ago and its been working just fine , like if nothing ever happened.. my symptons included black screen and lock up of audio, with forced restart the only way out ... then followed by " your computer had a problem and need to be shutdown" i would say up towards of 8 "panics". From a cold start, or after being on a while... iphoto locked up everytime .. I've been putting it to the test with hd video editing on fcp, and gopro software, some after effects comps... and also the graphics bench test... everything works great .. im very happy. ship with fed-ex, buy their box and they'll guarantee it, you'll have it back in about 3-4 days if you ship monday morning..
Khaled's professional service really helps those of us who have lost our early 2011 MacBooks to premature graphics failure. I was delighted at how quickly I received my repaired laptop - and booting it up to see it work properly was quite a thrill. Thank you Khaled!
Khaled good my MBP 17" turned around faster than I expected - It's working again and running cooler than it has anytime in the last year or so. I'd recommend him.
Great service - quick turnaround. Thanks a ton!
Thank you for fixing my MacBook Pro!!! It works great now!
Very quick turnaround time. Macbook was repaired in about 2 days and shipped back promptly. Total process took about a week. Packaging was great too. Saved a fortune by avoiding a logic board replacement through Apple. Thanks Khaled!
Fast turnaround, great price, works great now! Thanks!!
The work was fast and now I'm just hoping for a long life for it. Thanks Khaled.
