Unless he's okay with having his drive sent to a Korean refurb facility instead of Seagate's now defunct Lab, then I would recommend against that.

I would recommend you send it to the lab that hired the senior engineers that left Seagate, but you should expect to pay $600-$1800 if you want your data.

There are no reliable DIY options for a physically failed drive.

Kroll Ontrack has the clean rooms necessary for HD rebuilds stateside. Expect to spend more than $1,800 with unpredictable and not guaranteed results, true with any vendor. Kroll saved the drives soaked in swap water during Katrina as well as reassembled the HD's from the last shuttle disaster.

Unless you've got an enterprise server, Kroll Ontrack is even worse than Drivesavers.
They have long since abandoned consumer data recovery and they use the same tools every one else has access to.

Ironically enough before Seagate started this recent BS with closing their Chicago Lab, Kroll was losing major retailer business to Seagate because of the drop in success rates even though they are just as expensive as Drivesavers.
