PCB Price Comparison tool

A friend of mine found this on the QRP Tech forum. Since I haven't gotten brave enough to tackle having PCBs made, I can't vouch for it's usefulness or accuracy, but looks like something worth trying:

This site is definitely worth using when you are looking to get PCBs made. The last time I used it it suggested ALLPCB which had an offer on at the time so I got 5 boards for $5 with free courier shipping (my PCBs arrived in 5 days).

I would highly recommend using the site to see which PCB fabricators are currently the cheapest, you can then do a bit of research and get some user reviews and decide if you want to get your boards made with them.

There are so many different PCB manufacturers this site makes it really easy to get an initial price per PCB for lots of them with you only needing to enter in some basic data such as PCB size and number required etc.

I would take the pricing with a grain of salt, the results showed a price double what I recently paid to have an order made from one of the China fabs.

Heres what my PCB buddy says:

Bill, I have been using pcbway.com for my boards.  Insanely cheap price but so far fantastic quality.  No routing restrictions like others.  They take PayPal too.  You may share that with these guys.

I've used Seeed Studio (Fusion) for all of my boards and I think their quality is excellent. They are not cheap, but I like that I can drop-ship the boards if needed and they do DHL shipping if I'm in a hurry. Usually it takes about a week to get them to produce the PCB's.

I've used Seeedstudio Fusion PCB manufacture service a few times too. 
Start at only $4.9 but can fab very complicated boards. Excellent quality and service.

This is the company that has produced all my boards, including those sold by QRP Guys. Perhaps not the cheapest, but great quality and reasonably fast turn around.
