I used Dynamic Technical Solutions One for recovering some priceless photos from a hard drive that was failing. From beginning to end, Caliph was a complete professional- communicative, honest, and up front about the likelihood of a positive outcome and what the end cost would be. In the end, Caliph was able to recover my data. Although I hope to never again have to contact Dynamic Technical Solutions One for this particular issue, I would do so without hesitation!

I needed to transfer all data to a flash drive an remove all data from the laptop hard drive. Mr. Arrington was the first to respond to my request. He met me at my home within 2 hours. Completed the task within 1:15 minutes. He was professional, excellent technical an product knowledge. He showed genuine concern for my immediate time frame an had taken time to explain in detail what he was doing. An to top it all off his prices were extremely reasonable. I have already scheduled more projects for next week. Kudo's to V-TecPro Stop 8-18-2016

Exceptional service provided this professional. He was able to recover from ransomware that encrypted my files most of my key data files used. The files that were not recovered are stored in a separate folder until software is available to undue the encryption. I would definitely used this service professional again and he comes highly recommended from me.

My hard drive crashed suddenly, but Philip was able to recover all of my files, and for a very reasonable price at that. He was extremely professional from the start, communicated with me throughout the data recovery process, and even offered recommendations for data backup in the future when I went to retrieve my recovered files from him. I have never experienced such great service in any field. Philip is the go-to guy for data recovery problems. 10/10 would recommend!!

Mr. Burnham quickly assessed my laptop problem and recommended data recovery as the best solution for information that I had not backed up but required. He picked up the laptop and delivered a DVD with recovered data the next day. The turn around was very good ans reasonably priced.

I had a very quick and seamless experience with Shaw Computer Services. I dropped my work laptop during a business trip. The whole bottom of my laptop cracked and my hard-drive flew out and went skipping across the parking lot. I went back to my office and gave everything to our IT Department, which is a large company that we outsource too. They handle everything computer related in my company. They charge us a ton of money to do this. I really needed them to save the data from my hard-drive because there were months’ worth of work on there that would require tremendous amounts of time, effort and money to replace. They returned my hard-drive and said it was completely trashed and there is no way to save the data. I couldn’t accept that my data was all lost; regarding our IT department, I thought to myself, how much expertise they can actually have, all the people in the IT Department were early twenty somethings who just got out of college. So I decided to look outside my company. Did some google searches, came across Shaw Computer Services. They sounded ok but just to make sure I asked my buddy who is a software engineer and he actually had heard of Shaw. He said it was a pretty legit and gave me some advice on the price range that I should look for when I get quoted a price for the services. I was leaving on a business trip that afternoon, so I called Shaw up that morning. He was available that morning. I dropped off the hard-drive, told him what I needed and he quoted me a price that was reasonable and in-line with what my friend told me to expect. Shaw told me he would do his best and I left for my business trip still feeling uneasy. He did say he has worked on hard-drives in worst shape but there is always the possibility of not being able to retrieve the data. That very afternoon I got a call from Shaw and he said he was able to retrieve all the data. I was so relieved; he was able to do something my company’s entire IT department couldn’t do. My company has a ton of people that travel a lot for work and I always hear stories of dropped laptops during a business trips. If data recovery services are ever required by my colleagues I would first and foremost recommend Shaw Computer Services to them over our overpriced in-house IT Department.

I live in Singapore. My Dell HD had crashed and I was advised by data recovery expert that drive heads were beyond repair and drive had to be sent to a clean room to access data from the drive platters in the US. I was visiting Columbia, MD and through internet search located Shaw Computer Services in Ellicott City, MD and sent service request on Thumbtack. Shortly after entering my request, Phil contacted me and accommodated to see my hard drive the same day. He had an assessment within few hours and was well on way to recover my data. I had over 99% of my data recovered with only few files that were affected due to platters being scratched. During the entire process, Phil kept me updated on the process and the status of my data recovery. I would endorse Shaw Services and would not hesitate to use their services in future. Thank your Phil.

Chris was fantastic! I waited until now (about a month after Chris helped me) to write this because I wanted to make sure I could explain just how invaluable he was to fixing my PC. He was able to identify the problem to a specific part, which allowed me to replace that and get my computer up and running again! He was very willing and able to answer all my questions and I even learned something about computer repair. Could not recommend him more.

They recovered all our data from a dead hard drive. It did take a while but they were good with keeping us informed. The price was very reasonable, and they seem to be a cut above everyone else we looked at. I hope we don't have another data issue, but if we do we know who to call!

I had to stop my car rapidly and my drink spilled onto my computer case. Somehow, the water found it's way to the screen which now looked like a lava lamp. Andreas went over the possible outcomes and costs involved upfront. He actually wanted to try and see if he could just clean the LCD screen. If that did not work, he would have to replace the screen. Today, very few people will try to save you money and just jump to the easiest fix and not care about the cost. Andreas actually cares!!! Turns out, he had to replace the screen as he told me. The costs were very inexpensive compared to others in the laptop repair service community. Andreas kept me abreast of the situation when parts were ordered, came in and when the computer was ready. He was organized, friendly, efficient, went beyond the call of duty. He service was outstanding and his prices were even better. Thanks to Andreas, my laptop is just as good as the day I bought it. I would HIGHLY recommend Andreas for his professional and friendly service!!!

I am a thumbtack pro so I know how important it is to make sure that the people you are looking to hire have the proper information. Especially with computers, no 2 are the same. I was out of town, and hadn't touched my computer in 2 weeks, came back, the computer indicated I needed to have an update, and when I hit update, everything went wrong. The desktop computer basically wouldn't turn the operating system on. Its only 1 year old. I tried everything I new, including trying to restore it to a point before the problem existed. I made a determination that I needed someone who had far more experience. This happened on a Friday night. I put it out on thumbtack got 2 responses in minutes and I decided on Tony. He did a great job ! He came out on a Saturday morning , he tried a couple of things, then had to open up the desktop and find the data, which he did and then transfer it to a separate drive. He then had to do a total reinstall of Windows. All in all he was there about 6 hours and most important, honored what he quoted me. No one knew the job would take this long. Please note Tony is as good as the information you give him. I had all my passwords for Office 365, QuickBooks and even a government certificate IDEN. So in summary, Tony is a pro's pro, very patient a true professional. My business quickbooks is intact, as well as office 365, Mozy for backing up to the cloud. Look no further, hire Tony

I was unable to install a new router. Called Antonio and her gave me instructions over the phone. I then discovered that the router was incompatible with my system and would require new software and some special configuring. Antonio said he would come to our apartment (very difficult parking and busy traffic) at 6PM and he arrived at 5:45. Prior to his arriving he had found the new software and loaded it on his flash drive. He spent the next 1 and 1/2 hours making it all work. Nobody could have done a better job. His price was more than fair and he is courteous, neat and polite. Hire him.

He functions well in a high pressure setting and gives excellent feedback on what system best serve your need.

Dmitry was fabulous. He was able to come to my home within a few hours of sending out the Thumbtack inquiry. He was very courteous and explained everything, managing to make a complete IT neophyte like me not feel out of my depth. He connected some of my devices, ran diagnostics on my hard drive-- getting rid some 'nasties', suggested some (free) virus protection, and gave some suggestions on how to speed up my computer' processing speed. His quote was really reasonable and I would absolutely hire him again. ⭐️⭐️

Dmitry of Astra was able to both solve my computer networking issue and take action towards help ensure it wouldn’t recur. He also helped me solve and move towards solving (for an issue involving a cable) a few of our home’s longstanding computer and printer issues that we had just been living with. He was capable, respectful and pleasant, and I recommend him highly.

He's very nice and friendly, and experienced with his work. My laptop keep freezing frequently when i'm approaching my thesis deadline. i sent it to Marcus' place and had it diagnosed and repaired. The diagnose results were that everything's good and he helped me cleared up a few file fragments left over by some anti-virus software i installed earlier. it recovered for a while but froze again a few days later. But it was too late to have it repaired again, so i restored my system using Sumsung Recovery Solution by myself, and this time everything just worked out. Recommended him for hardware repairing.

I placed a request for help with my laptop through Thumbtack during the fall of 2014. My system crashed many times over the course of a few days and finally would not fully boot. Mr. Paarlberg quickly replied to my request offering a quote and information about possible solutions to my problem. His quote was far more affordable than the others who responded. Additionally, he mentioned that he would be willing to try multiple options to avoid reinstalling my OS or having to replace the HD. Mr. Paarlberg made arrangements to obtain my laptop immediately and even offered to pick it up from my residence. He quickly backed up my data, diagnosed the problem, and offered me a couple options. Unfortunately, it turned out that my HD was badly damaged and needed to be replaced (the machine is rather old). The chosen option was completed in less than a day and my machine was promptly returned. Mr. Paarlberg suggested an alternative OS to what I was previously using and went well above any possible expectations in meeting with me to explain his work and the new system. Additionally, he included a number of great (FREE) resources to learn more about the new Linux system. I am thoroughly pleased with Mr. Paarlberg's work, suggestions, and turnaround times. Additionally, the entire repair/system replacement was far less costly than I could have ever imagined. In general, I had a great experience having my system restored by Mr. Paarlberg. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.

I have had Jonathon Paarllberg come to my home for computer tutorials, since I am of the older generation unfamiliar with computers. I have liked his service very much, for me makes me feel at ease with something I inherently dislike. More than that, he is extremely good and solid in his role as computer tutor. He is very knowledgeable about the topic and knows exactly how to pitch it to me. He is flexible about my learning style and obviously likes teaching. HIs charge for tutoring is extremely modest. He is remarkably honest and is obviously bright. He has been very tolerant of home conditions. I like him a lot and am learning much! I"m very glad to have found him. Generally, I have no complaints, for he's the best. We could improve in how we set up the sessions, though the fault is mine as much as his. Promptness on his part would be a move in the right direction. I don't think he could possibly be better than he already is in this much-loved role. Absolutely nothing of importance has gone wrong.

I called Jonathon and I told him the problem with my computer. He knew what the problem might be and he told me what it would cause to fix the problem. He explained to me what it would take to fix the computer and how much it would cost. He came to my house on time and took my computer back to his shop to repair the computer. He fixed my computer very fast and brought the computer back. The price to fix my computer was very reasonable. Jonathon took his time to explain the new system he installed on my computer. Jonathan does excellent work and if I have any computer problems, I am calling him first
