Is it possible to buy only PCB (not soldered and without components)?

Zloy,

I am negotiating with my PCB manufacturer about this. The thing is, 4-Layer Boards are very expensive, especially at low quantities. My supplier makes me buy them 100 at a time, and I just don't have that kind of money for something that I am not sure will sell very well. I will continue to investigate, and I will update this page if I can find a source for cheap, 4-layer boards. Talk to you soon.

Please don't let price be your only guideline in choosing suppliers. I would rather pay a little more and get better quality.

Mr FIREBall,

Your order has shipped. Please drop me an email if you have concerns.

In addition, if you are the fellow I think you are, you ordreed through a paypal account that was not associated with the shipping address and caused a delay while paypal did extra checks.


don't worry, it will arrive.

P.S this thread is very old, and I only noticed by chance. The guy you are replying to doesn't even hang out here any more!

Cheers

I've had good experiences with ginge and robot fuzz.

I recently had an issue with a Australian company, that shipped it's product from Thailand. The package was held in US customs for 7 weeks. Ug. I've only had that problem with this one company. I highly recommend tracking numbers if possible.

thank you for the mail Ginge much appreciated.

My concern was to check whether the server registered my order or not (because i didn't rcv any acknowledgment). i have had some funny server related experiences in the past and it tends to get messy afterwords.

i'll send you an email later

cheers

Jharvey -- US customs is little too paranoid and i don't blame them, especially after all the mess by terrorist groups.

Are you still selling this? Do you ship worldwide? I have a website selling servo motors and else.
Maybe I can put this in the category too.
