I had an HP Pavilion laptop die on me recently and sadly all my pictures were stored on internal drive. I did not have any copy saved anywhere and all my life was stored on it. I could not believe this is happening to me. QUBEX data recovery guys did great job and recovered all my data and also fixed my laptop.Very happy and pleased with service, next time i need any computer problem i know where to go.

These guys are fantastic! I was sure I would hear my music again. I had no idea how to recover the files from a fried hard drive, and from what I had seen online, there was no way I could afford a data recovery service. Then, magically, a friend suggested I contact Qubex. They are wonderful to work with, 100% professional, and enjoyable to speak with. Max and company completely recovered the drive and made sure that the entire process was completely affordable (far less than the competition). If you need recovery services this is the place you must go!

Max was great. I had a hard drive with broke arm and scratched disk (total loss of unrecoverable data). In my case nothing could be done to fix this except a time machine with a flux capacitor. Max was very upfront about the cost and percentage chance data retrieval. He acted in good business integrity that allowed me to weight the cost of trying a fix. I chose not to, but in the long run he won my future business with all things digital. This is a company I would gladly support in the future.

I don't usually write reviews, not really my thing, but QUBEX did such incredible work for me, I am happy to highly recommend them. My computer crashed with over 5 years of company data and programs on it, and no backup (lesson learned). Apple tried to recover the data, but couldn't. They recommended a few places, but said that QUBEX had the highest success rate. I immediately took my computer over, and Max was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Within a very short time, he assessed that everything could be recovered, and I had 100% of it on a hard drive within two days (over Mother's Day weekend no less)!! Max verified everything with me on his own computer before I left, and showed me how to transport the old data onto my new computer. Max kept me updated with progress over the entire process, and worked hours I wouldn't expect anyone to work. This was greatly appreciated, as it allowed me to get my business back on track with barely a blip in operations. I couldn't give a more positive recommendation than Max and QUBEX!

Recently my hard drive crashed. The local computer repair shop was unable to fix or even access the hard drive. Max at QUBEX was able to completely recover all of my data and offered one day service as well. He also allowed me to review the data to ensure that I had the particular files I needed before payment. For their professional, prompt and quality service I recommend QUBEX.

This is the most reliable and friendly place I've ever been to to recover the lost data not to mention their competitive pricing and deep computer knowledge. I went to a lot of places before this one and all of them told me my Solid State Drive was dead and they could try to recover it for unbelievable price...well, Max at Qubex exceeded all of the expectations, he did diagnostics on my SSD telling me what was the issue the day after and he recovered my data the next week. Reviews say everything. So do not hesitate and go straight to Qubex if you have any problem with your computer. I would give infinite amount of stars for this review if I could. Thank you so much for the recovered data.

I had a problem with an overheating GPU in my laptop and I took it to him. He cleaned out the old thermal paste and replaced some newer paste in there, and now my laptop's running much cooler. Got it to him at about 5:00 PM, and I got it back by 6:00 on the same day, all for a very reasonable price. Very fast and efficient service, especially since all the other computer repair sites were saying that I had to wait at least 2 or 3 days before they could even begin service. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has a problem with their computer.

Shown is an Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" (Mid-2010) Mid-2010 - MC516LL/A - MacBook7,1 - A1342 - 2395 That had liquid damage. This Macbook had following specs: MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13-Inch (White Polycarbonate "Unibody" - Mid-2010) features a 2.4 GHz GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P8600) -- with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip -- a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 250 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, and an 8X DL "SuperDrive." For graphics, it has a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256 MB of SDRAM "shared with main memory" driving a 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix LED-backlit "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

Like its predecessor, this model uses a poly-carbonate "glossy white unibody" case design with a "non-skid" rubberized bottom surface. However, external improvements compared to its predecessor include a new "inertial" multi-touch track pad and a redesigned "MagSafe" power safe connector.
Internally, it has an integrated battery design that is not intended to be replaced by the end user, but battery life has been increased to an estimated 10 hours of run time. It has a faster processor and improved graphics as well.
Connectivity includes Air Port Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, a single audio in/out port, and a Mini Display Port that passes an audio as well as a video signal and supports an external display at 2560x1600. It does not have a Firewire port or IR to support a remote.
While Apple states that its not serviceable by end users - we disagree with this statement. You can service this laptop and do upgrades-downgrades and battery replacement without much of a trouble if compared to a newer models out there.

In particular Macbook Laptop was a HITACHI HARD DISK DRIVE 5K500 B250 SERIES MODEL#HTS545025B9SA02  5400RPM TYPE: TS5SAA250  250GB CAPACITY WITH APPLE HARD DRIVE FIRMWARE 2009 PART@ 0A78252 MLC:DA3350  A147121 APPLE PART#655-1538D

HOW TO RECOVER DATA FROM BAD BROKEN FLASH DRIVE?
This is the question one may ask once faced data loss situation on portable flash card or flash drive or camera memory card. 
While USB and Flash drives are great for carry-on and transferring data from one computer to another, offering significant memory capacity in an extremely portable format – their principal strength can also be their main weakness.
Due to their portable nature, USB or FLASH memory based devices are often carried around in bags or pockets and can often get damaged. This can be extremely disruptive if it contains important documents and files that are not backed up on cloud, your PC or laptop.
We help thousands of clients recover data from all kinds of portable data storage devices every year and have a great tech team dedicated to resolving this type of problems.
Please contact us immediately by calling our free phone at 720-319-7239 for a free diagnosis / no-obligation fixed price quote. It could be the first step to restoring your data.
QUBEX DENVER DATA RECOVERY SERVICE specialists are continually improving the skills, upgrading our tools, techniques and verification processes, that we utilize to recover data. If you’d like to find out more about how we do it, please visit our PHOTOS section and see real life cases.

Thecus Announces NAS With Built-In UPS
Thecus announced a new innovative NAS (Network Attached Storage) device that features a built-in lithium-ion battery backup to prevent data corruption caused by sudden power loss.
One of the most damaging things that can happen to electronic devices, and especially storage devices in RAID configurations, is sudden power loss. The unexpected shock of losing power can potentially cause data corruption. To prevent this from happening, the common solution is the purchase of a separate battery backup unit.
Thecus has opted to combine a mini-UPS directly into its N5810PRO NAS. The device features a 2000 mAh 28.8 Wh lithium-ion battery. This provides enough capacity to keep the NAS operational for approximately 30 seconds. If power is not restored within that time, the N5810PRO will begin to shut down all operations. Thecus said the added UPS will prevent the RAID array from compromise caused by sudden power loss.
The N5810PRO from Thecus comes equipped with an Intel Celeron J1900 Quad-Core SoC processor, with 4 GB of DDR3 memory. The NAS supports up to five SATA hard drives and supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and JBOD. N5810PRO also includes five gigabit LAN RJ45 ports that support load balancing and failover with multiple network connections, along with other link aggregation features.
The N5810PRO includes five USB ports, two of them USB 2.0 and three USB 3.0. These ports can be used to back up phones, cameras or external hard drives. There is also a single HDMI port found on the back, which can be plugged directly into a TV for device management, Web browsing and HD video playback.
Included on the front of the device is a small LCD screen and four buttons used to navigate the menus. It can also be accessed remotely through a PC, or by using an application available for iOS and Android called "T-Dashboard" that lets you manage, upload to, or stream from the NAS.
The N5810PRO includes Acronis True Image software and supports snapshot backups. Cloud storage through DropBox, Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive are also natively supported. by THW, more at https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=955075187867368&id=473541326020759

Apple iMac 21,5" inch Late 2014 Model - a so called "THIN" model came in for data recovery service. It had a SEAGATE Momentus - SAMSUNG HDD ST1000LM024 1TB CAPACITY pn# HN-M101MBB/A21 Apple PN# 655-1789D Computer was not able to boot and was stuck in boot screen every time you turn it on. Client also wanted to upgrade to new SSD. 
Most complicated part, if we not count data recovery was dis-assembly of this unit. One would think the front glass would be taken out and then LED screen unscrewed and taken out etc - neah. does not work this way. This iMac has LED screen FUSED with front glass and front glass in turn glued to the case. You can not have access to anything inside of it unless you will take screen out. This procedure IS VERY tricky and should be done by some one who has done this before. 
We are not going to lie to you, our first iMac of this type had front glass damaged during dis-assembly, even though we have done many dis-assemblies of various macbook models and macbook pro models along with mac book air models that required screen replacements and needed front glass to be separated from body. 
One thing is certain - APPLE tries and makes all newer computers LESS serviceable or not service or upgrade friendly at all. So if you want to take a part new iMac that is "THIN" consult with youtube or write us a message we will tell you what needs to be done and how to disassemble it properly with minimum risks. As of data recovery - we were able to recover all critical data from this seagate momentus-samsung hard drive.
If you have any broken or damaged Flash drive, Server RAID, Laptop computer, Apple iMac or Macbook or Desktop PC that was broken, dropped, drowned or shocked in other words damaged and you are looking where to go for data recovery services, give us a call, we will provide free consultation, as well as free evaluation and diagnostic of a problem and give you various recovery service options for data recovery.

Intel/Micron Introduces Revolutionary 3D XPoint Technology: Memory And Storage Combined
NAND, the last new storage-class memory, was introduced more than 25 years ago. We haven't seen a new form of memory to address the DRAM segment since 1966. That changed today, as Intel and Micron introduced the new jointly-developed 3D XPoint memory technology. Intel and Micron have over a decade of experience working together in the NAND field through their IMFT (Intel Micron Flash Technologies) venture, and have been working on developing 3D XPoint since the inception of their relationship.
The pace of innovation in the computer industry is legendary; the speed of the CPU has increased 3,500x, and it is 90,000x more efficient and costs 60,000 times less than it did when the first Intel microprocessor debuted in 1971. Memory, on the other hand, has lagged painfully behind. Storage has been increasingly picking up steam through the development of NAND flash memory, but even the fastest NVMe PCIe SSDs on the market lag behind, 10,000 times slower than today's CPU's.
There were some early signs that Intel and Micron were going to shake up both the memory and storage market when Intel introduced commands for persistent memory, CLWB and PCOMMIT, last November. This set off a furious round of speculation in the analyst community that something big was in the works.
3D XPoint addresses all of the key requirements to address the gap between CPU speed and memory with 1000x faster performance and 1000x more endurance than NAND, and 10x the density of DRAM, and the icing on the cake is that this new technology is non-volatile.
Non-volatile characteristics are extremely important to bridge the gap between DRAM and NAND. "Non-volatility" simply means that the new memory medium retains data without power. Bringing this capability to a device that is exponentially faster than NAND enables capabilities well beyond any other form of memory.
We measure HDD latency in milliseconds and SSD latency in microseconds. 3D XPoint is so much faster than competing storage-class technologies that its latency is measured in mere nanoseconds (billionths of a second).
There are precious few details available as of yet on the architecture, but we do know that it consists of columns connected by a series of perpendicular wires in a cross point architecture. These columns contain a memory cell and a selector, but the real innovation is that unlike other technologies, which store data by trapping electrons in insulators (and other electron trapping techniques), 3D XPoint stores data by using the property change of the material itself. This bulk material property change utilizes the entire portion of the memory cell, which increases scalability and performance.
The cross point layout, which connects each memory cell via bit and wordlines in a three dimensional checkerboard, is revolutionary. This allows each memory cell to be read/written individually. NAND has to erase large blocks of memory cells simultaneously. The cross point architecture allows for an exponential increase in performance, and Intel is currently building it on a 20nm process with a 128-Gbit density (or 128 billion memory cells per chip). 3D XPoint can be scaled at the node by shrinking lithography to sub-20nm, and also scaled in 3D by stacking layers higher. This will keep the cost of the memory low, though Intel and Micron did not provide specific price points. The companies did indicate that the price will fall between DRAM and NAND, which is an encouraging sign, because economics will dictate the success of this radical new technology.
Intel indicated the new memory would connect to the host system via the PCIe bus, which is yet another reason that Intel and Micron have been vocal proponents of NVMe. The NVMe protocol was designed from the ground up for non-volatile memory technologies, and not NAND in particular. Now it is apparent that Intel and Micron were laying the groundwork for something more as they developed the new protocol.
Speaking of economics, Intel and Micron are already producing the early generation of the new technology at the IMFT Lehi, Utah fab. However, they mentioned that both companies will also produce the memory separately, meaning they both have rights to the technology outside of the IMFT collaboration. This is an important nugget of information, because there is some speculation that the glory days of IMFT may be coming to an end in the next few years.
Both companies will produce end products with the technology, and they will not be licensing it to other companies. I doubt that Intel/Micron will sell the memory outside of their own finished products, but that is speculation. We do know that final products will be available in 2016, and neither company expects the new technology to affect their lucrative NAND business. The new technology will slot in between NAND and DRAM in use-cases, so it will not supplant either existing memory technology.
Intel's Robert Crooke, VP and GM NVM Solutions Group at Intel Corporation, and Mark Durcan, CEO of Micron, made the announcement together and took the chance to strike a pose with a 3D XPoint wafer. There has been rampant speculation as to which new technology would power the future for over 40 years. Pundits have projected that one of a whole host of technologies, including PCM, ReRAM, memristors, STT-RAM, among others, would emerge as the newest memory technology.
According to Intel and Micron, these questions have been answered, and 3D XPoint is the future. Frankly, this is a huge surprise, merely because 3D XPoint was completely wrapped in a cloak of secrecy until today. This is really a once-in-a-generation type of announcement, and the new capabilities will unlock the potential of future computing platforms, from mobile devices to the largest supercomputers. It will be interesting to see how other players, such as Flash Forward and Samsung, react to this development.

Plextor Moves To 15nm NAND With M6V Series SSDs
Plextor announced the release of its M6V SSD, which is notable because it's only the second company to market with a consumer 15nm NAND SSD (SanDisk Z400s was first). Plextor even beat the manufacturers of 15nm NAND, Toshiba/OCZ, to market.
Toshiba's 15nm NAND is standard 2D (planar), which is reportedly more economical than the popular 3D NAND competition. TLC NAND has also garnered plenty of attention as it continues to gain steam (it will account for 50 percent of the NAND output this year), but many of the shipping products are still based on larger lithography nodes, which means that 15nm MLC can also compete with larger TLC NAND processes.
Plextor designed the M6V specifically to provide a slip-in replacement for HDDs, and as such, it comes in the normal 2.5" form factor, but it is also available in M.2 2280 and mSATA. The M6V comes in 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB capacities and features a top sequential read/write speed of 535/455 MBps. Random read/write performance weighs in at 83,000/80,000 IOPS, but there are varying performance specifications for the respective capacity points.
The M6V SSDs utilize Silicon Motion's SMI-2246 controller, which pushes performance close to the limits of the 6 Gbps SATA III interface. To take things a bit further, Plextor offers its PlexTurbo software. PlexTurbo has been in development for several years and continues to evolve to offer more features, and the latest improvements increase the performance and reliability of the software.
We covered the new PlexTurbo in-depth at Computex 2015, but in a nutshell, it provides users with DRAM caching for read and write data but reduces the chance of data loss during an unexpected power loss. PlexTurbo also offers dynamic compression algorithms that compress older files in the background with no user interaction, and a hidden folder feature that allows users to hide their (ahem) personal files in a hidden partition on the SSD. Software offerings continue to be a key differentiator for the value segment, and Plextor has one of the most robust offerings on the market.
The NAND march of progress continues onward, but we are likely seeing the last generations of 2D NAND with the current 15/16nm products on the market. The pendulum is swinging to 3D NAND in the future, but it is clear that 2D NAND still has enough performance and endurance to tide us over until 3D NAND becomes more common.
The Plextor M6V will be available in July 2015.
The M6V pricing is very competitive, with 128 GB for $65.99, 256 Gb for $99.99 and 512 GB for $189.99. Prices do fluctuate, so we advise readers to check often THW for updates. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=956555704385983&id=473541326020759

SanDisk introduced its new iNAND 7232 storage solution for embedded applications, such as cellphones and tablets, at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, China. This new version of the embedded memory is an evolution from the previous iNAND 7132
SanDisk moved to 15nm 3bit-per-cell (TLC) NAND for this new implementation, which comes in capacities of 32 GB to 128 GB. The 15nm TLC NAND provides more density and lower cost for the underlying media. The new model features up to twice the capacity of the previous generation 7132.
The iNAND 7232 adheres to the eMMC 5.1+ HS400 specification, which also includes command queuing. The enhanced command queuing enables the device to process multiple commands in parallel, as opposed to resolving data requests in a serial fashion. The addition of command queuing also allows the eMMC products to remain competitive with UFS alternatives.
The increased speed is required for the higher resolution cameras and faster Internet connections, such as 802.11ac, in today's mobile devices. The iNAND offers sequential read speeds of 280 MBps and sequential write speeds up to 150 MBps in a tiny 11.5 x 13 x 0.9 mm package. For those keeping track, the 7232 has a 25 MBps faster sequential write speed, and it is the same size as the previous generation for width and length, but 0.1 mm thicker.
TLC doesn't have as much endurance or performance as MLC NAND, so SanDisk uses its second-generation SmartSLC technology. SmartSLC serves the dual purpose of increasing endurance and improving performance by catching all incoming write data in the more endurant SLC layer before passing it down to the TLC layer. This is becoming increasingly important as we move to smaller NAND lithographies, which inherently have less endurance.
According to the press release, SmartSLC boosts speeds up to 1.2 Gbps (gigabits), which is an improvement from the 1 Gbps boost of the previous generation. However, after a bit of conversion from Gbps to MBps we come out to the actual boosted speed being 150 MBps, which is not an increase over the normal rated sequential speed of the device. We reached out for comment from SanDisk, which indicated that the device can go beyond 1.2 Gbps, but it cannot specify any specific maximum speed.
SanDisk is also not releasing the random read/write performance metrics, instead focusing on the sequential performance specifications. The previous generation 7132 was listed at 3300/2800 read/write IOPS, and it is safe to assume the new version is slower in this aspect. The previous generation was also listed as offering 10 years of endurance, but there is no comparative data for the new model.
There are going to be unavoidable trade-offs in performance and endurance as manufacturers employ smaller 2D NAND designs, which is exactly why the move to 3D NAND receives so much attention. 3D increases the cell size, and thus provides more endurance and performance, which enables several more generations of NAND before we begin to encounter the same limitations.
The main driver of the smaller 2D planar NAND lithographies is to provide a more cost-effective price point. The iNAND 7232 is sampling now to customers.More at "THW" and here: http://www.sandisk.com/products/embedded/inand/inand-7232/

Samsung Releases 2 TB Models For Solid State Drive models 850 Pro and 850 EVO
Samsung announced two new client-focused SATA SSDs that will usher in a new era of high capacity and performance. Undoubtedly, the first thing you will notice is the price. The 850 Pro 2 TB tips the scales at nearly $1,000 or what I call Extreme Edition prices. This model will be a tough sale with Intel's SSD 750 1.2 TB NVMe model being just a used Honda payment away. The 850 EVO 2 TB is a more palatable $799.99, but that isn't why we think the 850 EVO 2 TB is better.
Both new 850 2 TB models use the same Samsung MHX tricore controller and 2 GB of Samsung LPDDR3 DRAM. The 850 Pro ships with Samsung's 32-layer 3D V-NAND MLC, and the 850 EVO ships with 32-layer 3D V-NAND TLC. The TLC model also has an SLC buffer via TurboWrite. Like other EVO SSDs from the company, Samsung scales the SLC portion size in relation to the overall capacity of the drive. With the new 2 TB model, the SLC cache is very large. It's so large, in fact, that we never hit true TLC performance even when transferring a Blu-Ray ISO file to the drive. What end users see is blistering-fast SLC write performance and latency. For normal consumer tasks, that means the lower cost 850 EVO 2 TB is actually faster than the professional 850 Pro. Transfer performance and price are not the only areas where the 850 EVO gets the nod over the 850 Pro.
Notebook users will benefit from the increase in on-battery time made possible by the new 2 TB models. Armed with new low power DDR3, the new drives outperform the previous 850 products in this test. The older 850 Pro and EVO models in lower capacity sizes ship with LPDDR2 that uses more power than DDR3. DDR3 also runs at a higher clock speed so the page table buffer delivers data to the controller faster than before.
The 850 EVO 2 TB is quite possibly the best SATA SSD ever released to the public. In a notebook running on battery power, the CPU, GPU and system bus all run at reduced clock speeds. This causes the whole system to lump around at Pentium III speeds. SSDs accelerate system performance; even older computers benefit from the latency reduction.
The Samsung 850 EVO is so good and has so much pseudo-SLC that the end user almost always writes data at SLC levels. That led to the highest notebook performance score we've ever achieved even though this is the value model. The 850 EVO 2 TB is so efficient that it even performs better than SSDs filled with real SLC
