Has anyone used a recovery service to get data off a failed drive?

A lot of them offer no charge unless they can recover services, but I'm skeptical. My mom had good luck sending in her hard drive. I would like to try and get some of my images off my EHD.

Canon T1i
Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro - Love this lens!!
Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 - Hate this lens!!!

I lost all my data from 2008-2011 adn the only place that could get it back was drive savers they wanted $2,700 to get it back.. I don't have money like that I cried it was terrible...

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

Drink lots...PEA pale!

Go to Best Buy/Geek Squad. I went through something like this years back and in order to open up the EHD, typically they have to use a safe room and it gets quite $$$$ to do it. I learned an expensive lesson unfortunately But... I believe BB will look first before charging you, give you an estimate. Worth a try.
