I wonder why there are still people trying to get into the PCB manufacturing business, the market is way saturated and margins are already razor-thin. There are so many lower hanging fruit to tackle, like the super lucrative test equipment market where shit is still way overpriced and margins are easily 5x even at the low end.

The sales person I was speaking to at PCBGOGO was very open (when asked) about the fact that they and PCBWay are related companies and use the same factory.

I bet 10 bucks it's not true
I'm waiting those 10 bucks then. I ordered from PCBGOGO, the same package as PCBway but with PCBGOGO logo on it, exactly the same label stickers used. On top of that I ordered some free proto boards which they give away. Guess what? Those boards have www.pcbway.com written on them. Also in the past most of the photos on PCBway website had JDBpcb logo on them. Find the diference between those photos and prices:

PCBGOGO:
15 Zhong Xing Lu
15 Zhong Xing Lu, BuJiZhen, Longgang Qu, Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng, Cina, 518112

PCBWAY:
HK Weiku information & Technology Co., Ltd
No.2, Industry 3rd Road, Jinsha Village, Kengzi Street, Pingshan New Disctrict Shenzhen China

Hangzhou Weiku information & Technology Co.,Ltd
Room 1105-1108, No.2 Building, Est Mall Business Center, No.698 Changbang Road, Xiacheng District, 310004, Hangzhou, China

Different companies. Only brands of HK Weiku i know of are 3PCB and PCBWAY. They're policy is more oriented towards building their main brand (PCBWAY).
Their website got ripped by employees more than one. China is not the US or Europe. If two companies have the same website, it does not mean it's the same company. Doesn't even mean the same guy made the website. First, they copy the masters, then innovate.

Finding prices and reviews for assembly (PCBA) is much harder than PCBs.

I made 6 production runs (10-200pcs, i make scientific equipment) on PCBWAY. They never got a single thing on the mounting. One time they screwed up packing tough...

That being sad, you must write your requirements very well, and provide accurate design drawings if you have anything other than smd components.
Be also very careful to specify if components cannot be washed or reflowed, because production for small quantity is never as flexible.

Hi everybody,

can you recommend me a pcb manufacturer that can do 6 layers board, without any requirements for impedance and special stack-up, standard width and spacing. All that I checked (also with pcb shopper) start from $200. I need only 2 boards, but not 5 or 10.

Thanks,
Lazar

Check PCBway. Don't expect it to be much under 200USD tought, 6 layer pcb have quite a complicated setup already.

thanks for building this great tool Bob!
I think you have enough suppliers as is, I would just display the number of reviews next to the star rating for each supplier.

cheers,

another Bob.

Great idea! I've added that!
