High prices and poor service

Aug 21, 2017 by Colin Thompson

I received a turnkey quote from Advanced Circuits which was higher than competitors and I assumed would translate into the highest quality product and service so I placed the order. After they had ordered all of the parts for the assembly, but before the PCBs were assembled, I realized there was a minor error in the circuit design. I put the order on hold to fix the error. In fixing the error, I was also able to eliminate several of the parts which should mean the cost of assembly would be less. I then submitted the revised design for a requote and to my surprise, received a quote that was about 30% more expensive than the first despite the fewer parts to assemble. They were absolutely clueless to the mistake. It took several emails to even show them there was an inconsistency in their quotes and then another few emails for them to figure out the problem. They claimed the first quote was under priced because they left out an "adder" for the board thickness. They offered me a 15% discount on the new higher priced quote for the mistake which still didn't compare to the original quote I agreed to and for which the parts were purchased. Now I was stuck with a high priced quote and a bunch of parts that I never would have had them purchase had they not screwed up the first quote. Ultimately, after many more phone conversations and emails, they refused to take any responsibility for their mistake. I ended up paying for the parts and having the assembly done with another company for literally a small fraction of the cost. The assembled PCBs from the other company were flawless. Advanced Circuits is one of the most expensive PCB fabricators/assemblers and there is absolutely no reason to pay the higher prices. Their quoting process is a joke. Don't let a nice looking website or the "sales" they constantly advertise fool you.


Hundreds of orders - They do well!

Have used for hundreds of orders, they have done very well.
The one time they goofed up, they fixed it immediately, no pain. : )
Have never had a bad board and the turn around time is always right on.
We tend to buy everything made in the USA & Advanced does well for us.
Having someone to easily call & talk with if needed is great!
