    Itead makes fine quality PCBs at very reasonable prices, but their Gerber viewer is way more trouble than it's worth. And the lack of tracking from Hong Kong post is a negative.

    Lack of tracking is a big negative, particularly when dealing with rural delivery and the uncertainty of the USPS. While the USPS is not Itead's fault, Oshpark has found a way around it. All Itead needs is a mail forwarder in the US, so that problem is avoidable.

    Although good service, I found Oshpark a bit on the Hi $ side. compared to DirtyPCB and even Itead.
    I would probably go the DirtyPCB next time.
