The one time I needed it I used http://www.datarecoverylink.com/ They
did a pretty good job even though not all the files were recovered (but
all the important ones were).
They seemed to be more fluent in Windows though. I had a drive from a
Linux Alpha (BSD disk labels and ext3 partitions) and they seemed to
have a hard time translating mount points and partitions.
I also had a Dell drive go bad under warranty so I used
http://www.drivesavers.com/. Using them got me a sticker so the
warranty wasn't voided. But since I was working for the government,
instead of the "oh, $1000 more or less depending what we have to do"
price I got the "$2000 flat rate GSA price". This was an NTFS disk that
wouldn't boot so I used Linux and got about 30% of the data off (and not
the important 30%). They got all the rest back.
