WTB: Data Recovery Equipment
I am looking for gently used data recovery equipment such as the products made by SalvationData, DeepSpar, or Ace Labs (pc3000).
If you have upgraded your equipment or are getting out of the data recovery business and want to sell your gently used equipment in good working order, please send me a pm.
How much does a new copy of PC3000 cost?
I hear it has a pretty good reputation.
From what I understand about $10,000. I understand it is very good, but very expensive. Hence my reason for looking for a used one. Most people don't seem to sell them once they get them.
I was more hopeful to find someone who maybe had the SalvationData products and maybe upgraded to PC-3000 and wanted to sell the SalvationData stuff. Or possibly someone who upgraded to the PC3000 UDMA and wanted to sell their PCI edition.
Watch out for pirated copies of pc3000 supposedly coming out of China. There are a few threads on it over at hddguru.com. You might have some luck scoring a copy over there.
Unfortunately, I did find someone "selling" some SalvationData equipment over there. After exchanging emails and agreeing on a price, I sen him the money by paypal. Long story short, I don't think I am getting my equipment. I have filed a claim with paypal. I'm hoping to get my money back at least.
