Easy to use software, quality manufacturing

Mar 17, 2017 by Alan

The software is free to download. I had no problems designing my board. Though it looks slightly dated. Their manufacturing and assembly service was probably one of the better ones Ive used with quick turnaround times.

Would recommend.

Pad2Pad marginal quality

Nov 15, 2016 by TV

I have ordered several times from Pad2Pad with some satisfactory results. They are fine for very simple boards, but I would look elsewhere if you really need a board quickly, or if you have a design with anything remotely unusual. Definitely look elsewhere for polyimide flex circuits - even very simple ones. I have had 3 flex PCB builds from them. The first was fine. The second was full of soldermask alignment and shape defects. They re-built that board for me, but the rebuild was also full of defects. They agreed to a partial refund, but in my company when we make a mistake that impacts our customers negatively we don\'t make the customer pay for it - ever. They\'ve lost my business for good.

Thanks for your feedback. And sorry to lose your business. It is difficult to determine with absolute certainty who wrote this, but the only customer that comes to mind kept 9 of 10 fully functional boards and received a significant discount for any inconvenience incurred.

Unfortunately, providing a full refund was not possible in this case as 90% of the order was accepted and kept by the customer. If the discounted 9 retained board are out of spec, we welcome their return in exchange for a full refund. Thank you for your past business. We wish you the best with you project.

Quality Boards

I haven't had any of the issues that the previous poster mentioned. Although I did once receive an order that I didn't think was made to spec, but when I double checked my design sure enough I omitted a small detail. Seems like the previous poster likely had a similar issue. I like Pad2Pad and find their software to be very easy to use.

Thank you for your review. We look forward to working with you again.

Avoid at all costs

Jun 18, 2014 by Richard Spelling

I used Pad2Pad for several years for about half of my PCB production. The price they charge is reasonable, but there were periodically issues with the boards. Holes too small, boards made backwards, traces that broke while soldering, etc. Finally they made a couple of hundred boards without drilling the holes in them. Every time I pointed out the problems with the boards it was "those are within tolerances" or "that is what you sent us" or something. It was always my fault for some reason. Finally I decided to not waste my money on them any more. So buyer beware.

Response: Response from Pad2Pad:

We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our service. We aim to provide easy, convenient, quality fabrication of PCBs. We reviewed our records and found that in each case the boards were made according to the specifications and files that were provided to us. For example, for the boards made with the mirrored silkscreen, they were made as per the Gerber files provided to us. For the order with the missing drill holes, our system did prompt a warning message of the error but it was not corrected before the order was submitted. For the most seamless manufacturing we suggest using the free and integrated Pad2Pad design software where all information is provided in a single file.
