Archiwa tagu: review – The best value for money PCB Service in 2017


$2 for 10 boards
$9 for stencil
$25 for DHL

Currently probably the cheapest on the market.

3 working days between order and shipping.

Zero flaws or problems even with the lowest possible clearances.

Absolutely worth trying!

„JLPCB is the largest PCB prototype enterprise in China”.

After some small problems with registration, which were solved really quickly by their support team, I was finally able to place my order.

I discovered SeeedStudio some time ago, since the company is pretty active in the internet (facebook, own wiki, some projects on github). Last month they introduced PCB manufacturing services, called „SeeedStudio Fusion Services”

I decided to give it a try, because the website looked pretty neat and modern. They also provided (see below) a little bit better specs than the others.
