Who's ordered PCB's?

I'm curious if anyone on here has ordered PCBs of their designs from EasyEDA. Overall the software is simple and easy to use and I've enjoyed the circuit capture and pcb layout functionality, but I'm curious about the quality of the PCBs compared to others such as OSHPark, GoldPhoenix, Advanced Circuits, PCBCart, etc. Anybody have close-up pictures of the PCBs they've received? To the EasyEDA team, what are the chances of getting a small sample board, or at least some high-res pics of the PCBs? (My board is almost entirely surface mount components so pictures of SMD pads would be a plus.

Thanks for all the hard work guys!

I ordered some PCBs back in late 2013 for this very simple project:

https://easyeda.com/andyfierman/First_project-cMGzRL3lf

I can't now find the PCBs (Oops!) but I can confirm that, as far as it's possible to compare such a simple PCB with others I have worked with, the quality of the EasyEDA PCBs is at least as high as those from even the expensive commercial suppliers such as Express Circuits and GSPK.

What you have to bear in mind is that (at least at the moment) EasyEDA does not cater for high end, high performance PCB designs that includes things like blind, buried and micro vias, exotic substrate materials or embedded components, buried capacitance layers, high layer counts and high density interconnect.

What it does cater for is the market for PCB designs for the hobbyist who needs a low cost route to a finished project through to quite the professional electronics engineer who wants a fast route to a low cost prototype, maybe as a proof of principle of part of a larger project.

In the meanwhile, we will try to come up with some pictures ...

Hi apocalyptic.angell,
All https://easyeda.com/rodyne/Data_Entry_Terminal_Mifare_RFID-uPJ1jdvNH are ordered from EasyEDA @rodyne .
And we provide full money back if you don't like them.

@andyfierman Thanks Andy!
@dillon Thanks Dillon!

I'm working on this project, nothing crazy, but it's got a bunch of surface mount and one 10 pin MSOP package.

I have ordered 6 different PCB's from these guys and I have found the quality of them excellent and the price competitive.

Most of the boards are built up and either in test or with clients, here is a picture of the most recent which is not surface mount and an older one I still have from an old revision.

Delivery is usally pretty quick to New Zealand and if they ever came up with a board assembly service (hint, hint) I would use them for a lot more work

Ah, now, about that board assembly service ....

You might like to have a word with Dillon.

:)

@dillon I'm going to, just need to finish tweaking my board.

apocalyptic.angell

@rodyne Thanks!

Neegu0Sh has added his 4 products, please check https://easyeda.com/Neegu0Sh/SPIhome-tPJDVduM4 out.

I ordered some boards 6 days ago. Should I expect the status to change from paid to shipped or something? Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss a step in the process.

dillon

@al.williams , Your PCBs are under process . We will send the track number and photos of your products to your email soon.

al.williams

Thanks Dillon, just wanted to make sure it wasn't waiting for me to do something. Just finished a new board. Enjoying EasyEDA--thanks.

Hey guys just wanted to report back that i did finally order PCBs and as far as I can tell (I'm no expert) they are pretty nice. Now I've just got to get the rest of the components to go on them. Thanks EasyEDA!

Hi guys, I didn't order one yet but I'm planning to do in a very near future.

Btw, the support guys are #1 and they answered my every single question with a huge patience which made me to decide PCB printing with EasyEda! Keep up great work, guys.

I have ordered PCB's.
They are perfect! I have nothing to add. Quality is very best!

Neegu0Sh

I can confirm this. The PCBs I ordered 6 months back were absolutely flawless - and thanks to the silk screen easy to solder. However.... that assembly service.... any news here? ;-)
Or can you recommend a service?

dillon

@Neegu0Sh , we provide assembly service, send an email to support@easyeda.com

Neegu0Sh

@Dillon: email sent ;-) Thanks!

I just ordered some boards recently, pretty standard, Lead Free HASL, and I am quite impressed with the quality. The board quality is great, a major step up from the Phenolic protoboard I had been using. Great quality, would reccomend. Now all I need is to get better at laying out the boards.
My only downside is that they were in shipping for almost 3 weeks, and the tracking # didn't seem to work that well.
If the tracking hadn't had a 10 day lag between something happening and it being recorded, I would have had only positives, but that's outside EasyEDA.

@Shieldexperiments,

Glad you like the PCB quality.

The airmail is slow and some places are untrackable, you can use express if you like.

The board quality is professional, computer grade imo. I really don't see how it could get any better.

Use something other than the default shipping if going to Canada. ;)
