I recently found out about CircuitHub and Macrofab. Both companies seem 
to be great options for hobbyists. I submitted a design for a small 
Arduino-type board, about 1.5"x1.5" with 27 components on two sides. 
Macrofab quotes $31 for a single board, $251 for 10, and $1,847 for 100. 
CircuitHub quotes $188 for a single board, $315 for 10, and $1420 for 
100. These seem like reasonable prices for small batches, which includes 
manufacture and assembly of the PCBs. Even better, I can just dump my 
Eagle files directly into the website; no need to generate my own BOM 
and gerbers beforehand.

Has anyone on this forum used either of these services? I haven't found 
any reviews online, but there's been plenty of press. I'd like to hear 
some opinions and stories of your experiences (lead times, customer 
service, quality, etc.)
