Tony, was prompt in his estimate and equally as prompt; to trek over to my location on a Saturday morning, from the other side of the bay.
I explained that I couldn't get my PC to boot and after a quick diagnosis; It turned out the main drive on my laptop, was at its end. This is when I knew I had an honest professional that was willing to go above and beyond; even for a small job such as this. In any case; he accompanied me to our bigbox Electronics shop and advised on what we needed for our replacement ($45/1TB internal SATA drive), you cant beat that...
Next he mentioned that he would try to recover as much as he could from the old drive and after looking at it we realized it was probably a lost cause. So, he took my laptop and new drive and said he would be back the next day with the upgraded machine. I said OK.....well don't ever underestimate an over-achiever, (*** and this is truly why I Highly Recommend him as a professional and his services as a skilled technician), he called me at about 9:30pm and told me that he might have a way to get my data back (I said don't worry about it, but it would be much appreciated)...So, lo and behold the next day he came back to my place, with an upgraded computer and 90% of my data back on the PC!! Good as new! I was impressed...so if you are reading this review and have a PC/MAC issue, call him ASAP!!!
--- This guy is a freaking wizard, a rock-star, a magician...whatever you want to call him...but do yourself and your PC a favor and call him!
Thanks again Tony!
