Archive for the ‘Apple Authorized Computer Repair’ tag
A new 5-Star Review for MacMedics: The Apple Authorized service and sales from MacMedics have been a great resource for my business and home Mac networks. Between the office and home, I have at least two dozen Apple devices, several which I’ve taken to MacMedics for help, My experiences here, have been nothing less than first class! My Apple gear is serviced quickly the first time around, a rarity elsewhere, but not with MacMedics! When some items were not able to be repaired practically, I had them replaced at MacMedics. The owner is always on the premises and hands on. I have not been back to the Mall since MacMedics opened!! Thank you.

Today, another computer repair shop came to visit MacMedics. They were trying to fix a MacBook Air and came to see us to try to buy an Apple hard drive service part.
We certainly respect other places trying to help their customers, but these folks are just not equipped to fix Apple gear without the Apple tools, training, and certifications that we have here at MacMedics.
The representative that visited us grabbed the Apple SSD hard drive (just a small memory card the size of a stick of gum) out of their bag, and said while handing it to me with their bare hands (without the necessary static bag protection), “I need one of these”. I promptly suggested that we go ahead and put it in a static bag for them.
They were convinced that was the issue with the computer was in fact a faulty SSD hard drive. I explained that SSD hard drives rarely go bad, and the best way for us to help them would be to have the whole MacBook Air. That way, we could perform a free test on the computer with the SSD hard drive installed back into the unit. They did not bring the MacBook Air with them for today’s visit.
If you have a Macintosh computer, or any other Apple gear like an iPad, iPod, iPhone, Apple Watch, or Apple TV, there’s really no reason not come visit MacMedics first. We’re the only Apple Authorized Premium Service Provider in the Baltimore-DC region. Our Apple diagnostic test of your gear is free and requires no appointment. Plus, all current Apple Macs are repaired with genuine Apple Service parts and ALL paid-for repairs come with the famous 1-Year MacMedics warranty.
We love to help when we can, especially when it comes to wedding and honeymoon pictures. This was a case where our customer could not afford a full data recovery, but there were portions of the drive that were available to us. One of our engineers, Chris, decided to take it upon himself to try and move some of the data while we had the drive mounted. As a result, he was able to copy some of the files that were most important to the customer.
After the customer got his drive back, he wrote us this note:
I just wanted to write to thank you for your wonderful professionalism and kindness in helping me and my wife sort through what to do with our crashed Mac. It was a very difficult decision for us not to recover the entire hard drive, but the right one given our finances. When we received the hard drive in the mail a couple days ago, we were downright moved to discover that you took the trouble to find our most important files – the wedding and honeymoon photos and her master’s thesis – and copy them for us.
We will definitely send all of our future business – and that of our friends – to you!
While other Macintosh data recovery firms charge $1000 – $2500 for data recovery and then charge extra for the hard drive that contains your data, MacMedics will recovery your lost data, replace the failed hard drive, transfer your data back to the newly installed replacement hard drive, and include a free 500GB Time Machine hard drive (so you never need data recovery again) for a flat fee of just $699 for Macbook, MacBook Pros, Mac minis, Mac Pros (older silver tower model), and iMacs.

A New/Old MacMedics Client Has This To Say: First of all, I have three things to say: “use them”, “use them”, “use them”.
It’s no secret that MacMedics can handle pretty much anything our clients can come up with (even when other Apple service or consulting firms can’t).
Here’s a recent MacMedics review a customer left for us. He had been to see us 20 years ago, and when he ran into a tough problem he remembered us and came back. He also got to witness our data recovery skills and customer service for another client who happened to visit MacMedics in Severna Park, Maryland at the same time he did.
“My MacBook from 2009 stopped working with Quicken. I went to an online Quicken specialist, supposedly, and after 5 hours of working on my computer, they couldn’t fix the issue. I remember a company that I used 20 years ago, and called to see if they were still around – they were. When I brought my computer to them, after a day of working on my computer, like they said, they had the problem fixed!
First of all, I have three things to say: “use them”, “use them”, “use them”.
Initially I spoke with their technician, Chris over the phone, who encouraged me to use their in-house lab services, costing $199. After having my computer fixed, I bought additional memory, by my request for $85. One thing that was reassuring was Chris’s people skills. He assured me that they will find a solution and that they could take care of the problem. During the repair process, Chris stayed in touch and told me his game plan, this wasn’t a simple fix; especially since another company wasn’t successful in resolving my problem.
Side note: After having my problem fixed – A college kid came in disheartened, having her hard drive quit. Watching Chris at work, reassuring by giving her a plan of action and a worst case scenario – you could see the change of this client’s demeanor, to that of calm in a matter of seconds. I have no doubt that he had another happy client.
