 that is extraordinarily cheap, very good.  i also checked the cost
that they'd be able to do EOMA68 boards at, and it's 60% of anything
else i've previously been quoted: $361 instead of $600 for qty 5, and
that's a 1.2mm PCB.   a 1.6mm 110x90 2-layer PCB with 6-6 mill
track/clearance and 0.25mm min drill size was $38 for qty 5 which is
about 30% of what eurocircuits quote.

 bear in mind that you would still have to pay tax, duty, tax-on-tax,
tax-on-duty and tax-on-tax-on-duty... oh, and shipping.  and
tax-on-shipping.  and tax-on-duty-on-tax-on-shipping.  all of which
could well end up adding almost 80%+ to the cost.

 time-wise they look pretty fast, eurocircuits do a typical 7-day
turnaround (these guys are 3), shipping from eurocircuits is often 2-3
days (and is only once a week for the 7-day production), so actually
even though shipping would be with DHL international from china, you
might actually end up getting it faster.

 weird, huh? :)
