With known specifications, you can work out the cost of obtaining small quantities of small boards in advance. The size limitations are not too restrictive for the majority of small projects and the quality of the boards is as good as that of the big players.
The speed of production is even better than most of the other PCB houses, without any additional fees. You are offered a big choice of shipping options, complete with pricing, to help you total up your cost.
The only drawback is the fact that pricing is quoted dollars, without explicitly stating that the prices and fees are in “US Dollars”. This can surprise customers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Singapore, to name a few.
The promotion currently offered is what enticed me to try PCBGOGO with three boards in one order. It took a few back and forth E-mails to sort out what Gerber files should be uploaded to their server, but once sorted the order went smoothly and arrived in a timely manner, considering the world-wide pandemic of the time.
The boards were of good quality and according to specifications. It took me a few weeks to build the projects on the supplied boards and everything went well.
I sent a second order, with three more designs a month or so later. They contained all the required Gerber files this time and they were all accepted. The only problem with the second order was the fact that one of the boards, while still less than 10,000mm2, it was quoted well over five times the price of the promotion price for a 100x100mm board. The current promotion offer is limited to the dimensions of the board, not its area.
I will definitely continue to use this service for as long as the current promotional offer lasts.
