Twinbytes Reviews and Testimonials
5 stars - based on
Daniel Gauthier of TwinBytes is no ordinary human being. I met Daniel at MACC (Markham Association of Community Champions) where he shared his passion and love of giving back to the community. I run a social justice group for kids here in Markham
www.thegivingtreeunionville.ca and at our last meeting made a shout out for inspirational speakers to come in and share their life experiences with my youth. Daniel jumped at the chance and within 72 hours, had prepared a presentation on Stereotyping and bullying. He came roaring up on his bike dressed in his full biker gear and made a huge impression.
He presented and spoke in great length about the consequences of stereotyping individuals and bullying and how we can be positive change makers. Daniel, thank you so much for your time and for sharing your experiences with us. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the New Year!

I highly recommend Daniel at TwinBytes for any computer assistance! After my hard-drive failed and showed up empty on a hard-drive reader, I was told by several other companies that it was un-repairable and would need to be taken to a clean room to retrieve any data (if I was lucky). I had very important data on my hard-drive and Daniel was able to retrieve 90% at a fraction of the price compared to what I was quoted elsewhere. The turn-around time was also a lot faster, and I was back up and running within a few days! Daniel was very attentive and professional and I will be using TwinBytes moving forward for any computer related assistance. Thank you Daniel!

TwinBytes Inc. not only the best computer repair in Markham but also has performed
a miracle for me. My computer crashed a few years ago. I went to another computer repair company, they repaired my computer but told me that a few files was deleted and lost not able to retrieve. That was a very shocking news for me I had just lost months worth of work. As I was in the shocking stage I remembered of
having met Daniel in the past. I called him and took the computer over and that was when the miracle happened. He retrieved all of my files and showed me how to backup for
that to not happen again. YES! TwinBytes Inc. for me is one of the best computer repairs.
I found TwinBytes on Homestars and called the phone number on Saturday
evening figuring that I would leave a voicemail ffor someone to call me back on Monday. To my surprise the owner, Daniel Gauthier, actually answered the phone himself!
He was kind and courteous as he listened to my computer issues. Within 24 hours I had dropped off the computer desktop, had it professionally repaired and picked up
without losing even one minute of valuable time. I am so happy to now be a TwinBytes client!!! Great work and extraordinary service!!!
Hey there good readers. Do ya have a computer that needs service
or want a new one put together right? Don't bother with Barf-Buy or other computer no-nothings (generally speaking, of course). Daniel Gauthier is a super,
knowledgeable guy (and author!) who knows PC's and PC parts like no one else around Markham. I know what I'm talking about because I am a computer geek and can
do a lot of what Daniel can do, just not as well, to be frank. That's why you pay for what you get in this world. If you want excellent service, affordable
solutions to your computer issues and a system that rocks, see Daniel and walk away happy and know you're in good hands should you need his help down the road.
My good friends A & S also had a computer done up by Daniel and are beyond impressed. Twinbytes - thanks for everything so far. :-)

I recently took my laptop, which was not booting and was also
running very slowly, to TwinBytes for an assessment. Daniel understood that I needed the computer for business and responded very quickly. He was able to look
at the problem the same day, and begin a cleanup that addressed the problems. When I asked for advice on new computers because of the slow performance, he went
beyond the initial issues and recommended installing a solid state drive in lieu of purchasing a new machine. As a result I now have a much faster machine,
and didn't have to spend money on a new computer.
Daniel is also very prompt to answer emails when I have questions, and to provide remote support when that is necessary.
Daniel and TwinBytes have helped me for a number of years, and I am very pleased with their support.

I am delighted to write a testimonial letter for Daniel Gauthier of Twinbytes. We have had Daniel as our I.T. consultant for 5 years and are extremely pleased with his work on our behalf.
Daniel initiated a plan of preventative maintenance so that our software is always up to date, and our virus and malware protection is always current.
He is always available to do troubleshooting when anything goes down or needs tweaking & he has a broad range of computer & IT knowledge which he is able to apply, including pc's, Apple products and all of the extensions to our computers. He interfaces well with our web host to ensure that it is always up and functioning effectively.
Daniel not only has great technical skills but we find him easy to work with and he is able to communicate well to all staff in layman's language about technical things.
I highly recommend Daniel and Twinbytes for a business of any size or for personal tech support. Please feel free to call me directly at (905) 305-8490 if you would like to discuss his work further.

is my "go-to" for all of the desktop needs for my business. I appreciate
his incredible timeliness and efficiency in all of our dealings, which
has been critical for me as so much of my business is cloud-based.
Daniel is able to simplify the ever-changing world of technology and how
it affects my business. I really appreciate having TwinBytes support my
business and I have great security knowing they're only a call away!
TwinBytes has been handling the computer needs of our National Head
Office for several years, with both on-site and remote service. The
service is always efficient, timely and completed to our satisfaction.
Daniel and Katherine are extremely helpful in answering questions and
assisting with solving problems. I would definitely recommend TwinBytes

Daniel from Twinbytes has helped us multiple times over the years with
computer repairs including virus removal, fan replacement on a laptop
and recently created a website for us, started SEO work on it and in
turn it started bringing us more business.
We recommend Daniel at Twinbytes to anyone who appreciates quality
If anyone needs a computer fixed (home or business) I would highly
recommend the place I used recently...TwinBytes Inc. in Markham. The
owner, Daniel Gauthier, was fantastic. My home PC was completely dead,
it was dying slowly and then took it's last breath. I was inconsolable...I
found Daniel on the internet and brought him my tower that morning and
he was able to get it cleaned up, up and running, within a day at less
than what he had originally quoted me for. He did not do anything I did
not need and he took time to fix my "older model", rather than just
throw in a more expensive new hard drive...I literally would not have
known what exactly it needed as this is NOT my area of expertise. He
kept me up to date on the progress and I had it back pretty much the next
day. he was a super nice guy and a real businessman that cared about my
outcome and finances. I would higly recommend him and his services.

a small business owner - technology is a very important tool towards my
success. I'm sure you can all appreciate what it would be like to
experience 2 hard drive crashes on the same laptop. Finding someone to
trust to fix it wasn't easy...but I was lucky and met Daniel from
TwinBytes. Not only was it convenient to have someone local working on
it...Daniel went above and beyond to get my laptop back up and running. He
was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend my "techie guy", Daniel,
for all your computer issues!
Daniel, this is just a note of thanks for your help in getting rid of
some nasty viruses in my PC and for your book, TECH-KNOWLEDGY. I find it
an excellent guide for laymen like myself, using easy-to-understand
language and, yet, quite comprehensive in its scope.
words that no one in the service industry wants to hear are "The Server
is Down". I can't even begin to thank Daniel enough for his assistance
and expertise when we had our server crash. He was at our offices
immediately and got us up and running temporarily. He then went on to
get us a new server and proceeded to set it up for us and now our new
system is running better than ever! He completed this very large job in
a timely and efficient manner. Considering he was dealing with something
that someone else had set up in the first place, that makes it even more
We started using TwinBytes last fall based on the recommendations that
we had read on the website. They were all right! Daniel is wonderful to
deal with and explains things in such a way that it makes it easier for
us to understand. He reacts to any issues promptly and efficiently. I
wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for
an IT person for their company.
Daniel is a joy to work with. I noticed his calm and can-do demeanour
years ago when my hard drive took a nose-dive. And when I came back with
the exact same problem recently I was amazed that not only did he
remember the hard drive but went the extra mile to ensure that I would
have it back as soon as possible.
a design and manufacturing company of interconnect products for the data
communications industry, we rely heavily on our networking system. When
it came time to upgrade our server we had to make sure we found a
reliable and competent computer services company.
After trying a few companies that created more problems than solutions,
we decided to try TwinBytes. I met with Daniel and he developed a
strategy to install our new server and upgrade our client workstations.
Well I must admit that I expected some major hiccups but TwinBytes
upgraded us seamlessly and virtually transparent to our users. We now
have a faster more efficient system thanks to TwinBytes.
I received many compliments from staff as to Daniel's patience and
professionalism and I can personally attest to his ability to turn
complex problems into simple solutions. Now that we have our upgraded
network in place, we can focus more on customer relations by adding many

I had my laptop fixed recently by Daniel and it was one of the best
service experience I've ever had. Everything was seamless starting from
the initial phone call, taking my notebook into his office, and the
repair turn around time. I never felt at any point that he was trying to
get more money out of my pocket. In fact, I feel guilty for not paying
more due to the urgent nature of my request. His friendly attitude,
honesty and professionalism is quite refreshing because it is hard to
find these qualities in service professionals these days. I highly
recommend TwinBytes to anyone needing computer repair and/or
maintenance. He's also got his own book that I just started reading.. so
far I find it very informative and I think you will too!

computer hard drive crashed all of a sudden and we needed to have
important data recovered. Called several places and everyone just told
us to bring it in for a set lab fee.
Daniel from TwinBytes was the only one who asked details on what the
drive sounded like, what the screen was, etc.. He said he can try to
recover the disk manually first to save some money as it might not be
necessary to send it to the lab.
Despite exhausting all his methods, the hard drive was completely shot.
He had to finally send it in to a lab to recover the data, but kept true
to his estimate on what the fees would be so there were no surprises.
The data was recovered and it was still cheaper then all the other phone
quotes that we received. He could have easily taken advantage of our
situation, but didn't. Instead he tried to work with us in a timely and
I would not hesitate to use Daniel from TwinBytes again for any computer
related problems. Truly an honest individual and highly recommended!

We had some major network issues and not only were you able to fix them
but you got it done quicker than I thought possible. Now we're secure

In addition, when I called you in a panic because my lap top crashed you
walked me through the process, were able to recover all my data and got
me up and going quickly. All for a VERY reasonable price. I've heard
some nightmare stories of people being held hostage to get their data
back and have been extremely impressed with your professionalism and
value. It's nice to find someone competent and honest!

can't believe it! I took my computer to a place a while ago because the
sound wasn't working. They said it was something with some part that was
too big of a job and not worth fixing. They couldn't do anything with it
and said I should either toss it or live with it. I took it to Daniel at
Twinbytes and he fixed it quickly for only $35. Apparently it was a
simple fix and was incorrectly diagnosed by the other guys.
Neal Jensen - May 2010
A note of appreciation for your recent work in assessing the problem
with my laptop computer. I was about to spend over $200 on a repair
recommended by another computer support firm when I spotted your office
and decided to get another opinion. Your diagnosis proved correct and
the repair (get a new battery) saved me most of that $200.
You can be sure that I will continue to use and trust in your work.

would like to thank you for your assistance and professionalism with
recovering the information on my hard drive. It was a pleasure dealing
with you.. As an IT Professional I am so well aware that a backup is
important and not something that can be put off till another day. It was
my mistake, and I will always be grateful for your assistance.
The distance to reach you in Markham is well worth it! I did not find
anyone in the Halton and Peel region that provides this service at your
you so much for your amazing recovery of my external hard drive. I
seriously felt like I had been "erased"! You recovered it not only at a
quicker speed and more reasonable cost than what others have quoted, you
also recovered it AND fixed my corrupted hard drive. I am so grateful
for your help. You are so courteous and humble. I knew I could rely on
you right away when you called within an hour after I gave you my
damaged drive at the end of Saturday, and had all 120GB of my drive
recovered on Monday morning. This proves to me you are hardworking, and
that you really put a great deal of importance in your clients� need.
Always, you are so willing to help, either on an individual basis with
computer problems, or the whole community with sponsoring sports teams.
I can tell you have a heart of gold, and you will always help as much as
you can in your maximum capacity. I highly recommend Daniel and
Hi Guys...just wanted to let you know that everything seems to be working
fine and to thank you for a smooth transition...as you know I was very
nervous and you guys made it seem easy.
I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for fixing and setting
up my high speed wireless connections. I have heard only good things
about you through other members of the Markham Board of Trade. I'm happy
to be able to confirm those reports. You were on time. I left you to go
to another meeting. You continued until you were finished, the setup was
complete and working. Your rates are very reasonable. You are very
polite and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending you
to my friends or clients should the need arise. All the best and thanks
for easing my frustration.

Daniel has been looking after my computers for several years. His
initial visit was to upgrade the operating system to Windows ME and at
that time he partitioned the hard drive and installed both virus
scanning software and a firewall. The computer has been entirely problem

on Microsoft XP Media Centre Edition, so that I can manage my digital
photo files, cd's and record TV programs.
