The Wild World of Cheap Data Recovery

January 24th, 2013 No comments

When DriveFish began providing cheap data recovery for a flat fee several years ago, there were very few if any other companies out there providing a similar service. Over the last few years, we have watched the industry grow as more companies attempt to provide cheap data recovery. But for a variety of reasons, DriveFish is still considered the best cheap data recovery, a title we are honored to have bestowed upon us.

With DriveFish, our recovery fees are some of the lowest in the industry and unlike some other cheap data recovery companies, we will never tell you one price and then give you another later. The prices listed on our website are a flat fee, and aside from target media and shipping, this is the ONLY cost you pay. No diagnosis or lab fee. No fee if we don’t recover the data you want. No extra fee for parts or because the drive ended up taking extra time. Just the simple flat fee based on the capacity of the hard drive. That’s all.

We also strive to continue providing the best customer service possible, and help you every way we can through your data recovery experience, which we know can be stressful and even frustrating with certain companies. Therefore we keep our model the same: to provide the best cheap data recovery with quality service and keep our customers happy.

It is this philosophy that has kept DriveFish number 1 in the cheap data recovery market for years now, and we plan to keep that position for many more.


1 TB Flash Drive To Be Available Soon

January 7th, 2013 No comments

Later in this first quarter of 2013, Kingston claims they will have a 1 TB flash drive available to the market. This is a vast jump up in capacity for flash media. Known as the DataTraveler HyperX Predator, the drive communicates with USB 3.0 and promises read speeds of up to 240MB/s and write speeds of up to 160MB/s. This is incredibly fast compared to historic flash media speeds!

Of course, you will have to pay a pretty penny to get your hands on one of these HyperX Predators. The currently available 512GB model is $1750, so if you want to be one of the first in line to get the 1TB model, get ready to break open your wallet. Of course, if you’re willing to wait a little while these will come down in price. Who knows, by later in the year there will probably be a 2TB available!
