I was having some issues with an external hard drive so I contacted a local shop for a data recovery estimate. They wanted $70 just to look at it and I was told that, with the amount of data that had to be recovered, the total cost would be over $200 (plus another $35 if I wanted it done within 3 days).
I decided to shop around for a better price so I contacted Lee at Allgood. His initial quote for recovering my data was less than what the other guys wanted just to diagnose the problem. I dropped my hard drive off with Lee and he called back later that day with his diagnosis. My drive was failing and Lee told me the data recovery process was slow and that the price may go up. I told him to get a new hard drive for me and that I was fine with paying a little more to get my data back.
When all was said and done, I had a new hard drive and all my data recovered for less than my initial quote from his competitors. I shudder to think how much having it done by the other guys would have cost, especially with the purchase of the new drive. In the end I probably saved ~$150. He was also done within the time frame the other guys wanted an extra $35 for. I couldn't be more pleased with Allgood's service and will definitely be returning if I ever need any other computer related work done.
