I ordered my first PCBs from www.PCBway.com this week, and I am very impressed.  I usually get my PCBs from DirtyPCB or Hackvana..... but now it will be PCBway.

 

Here is quick review, in point form; smiley

  • Great web site and is update. Can actually see PCB manufacture process of order, tracking, design, etc..   everything is in one place.  Nice. 
  • 7 days to arrive at my door, from time of order. I am in Sydney Australia.
  • PCBs packed very well.
  • Silks screen is very detailed and 'fine'
  • Price isn't the cheapest.. I think dirtypcb is cheaper, but you dont get the same quality or speed.
  • Shipping is with DHL, which i like.
  • Free "perforated boards" (universal boards).

So what did the 4 (approx 2" x 2") double sided, 1.6mm boards cost you in the end?

Then with shipping it was a total $41USD

Per board or for the four of them?

I'm a PCB customer too. I'm from Argentina. I ordered 4pcbs on march 2 and received them yesterday by dhl express (china->usa->argentina). that's 6 days from order to my door, including customs. awesome!

u$s263 paid by paypal. All boards ordered double sided and different base color (red, black, blue and green) FR-4 1.6mm. 

 

pcb quantities:

50pcs 85x50cm

50pcs 45x14cm

30pcs 60x58cm

40pcs 100x63cm

 

Also I tried pcb-assembly in a small board with 2 smd resistors, 1 cap and 1 8-soic chip, and a 4 pin connector trough-hole. I will try this mont maybe a full assembled board of about 70 pcs including 0603, QFN, TQFP.

 

bye,

Why is PCBway not banned? Just saw that they again spammed the forum with a post we are not waiting for.......
