Yes.. I did send an email to iTead/iMall directly (to Sunny & pcb services).
but instead of waiting 24 hours for an answer.. I figured someone here has used them before, and might know the difference(s) between these two items/services..
have a few PCB's to get made... noticed one is over sized for the qty 10 pcb small batch PCB runns they offer..
(its 0.75in. x 4.45in in dimensions)..
or according to iTead when I sent asking original question I was quoted: 1.9cm x 11.24cm in dimensions.. according to the gerber files.
They recommended this service for that size board (5x15cm):
so this link:http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/pcb-prototyping/im120418010.html
which equates to:
5 qty pcb's total
$38.00 USD (not including shipping costs yet)
*(I did notice that the title says: 2Layer PCB Larger than 10cm x 10cm however? and not the 5x15cm choice she mentions?)
but if you look on their site.. and go to the small batch pcbs..etc.. find the LARGER than 10cm x 10cm option..http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/small-batches-pcb/im120418019.html
fill in all the options (no color, no extra charges. 100% E-test..etc)
it only comes to: $28.83
What am I missing here? What is the difference? I get a ton more pcb's -and- they are cheaper... from the same place?
thanks in advance for anyone who can help me 'understand' LOL ..
looking at Seeed (which I have never used before?.. anyone recommend them?... they look ALOT like iTead? same images/requirements....almost)
iTead's second, cheaper price, mathces more with Seeeds price: ($26.00)....
**Update: its +$26.00.. not a flat $26.00.. its +$26.00 + $9.90...
so a 'bit cheaper than iTead.. & you get 10 boards vs the 5?
hmmmmm.......I guess Im still un-sure about the differences in the two iTead/iMall products/services?
