Hi Jacqui

Just checking through our records . We have used Newbury Electronics for our low volume fast turnaround PCBs for a few years. In all that time we have never had a problem with quality or delivery dates.

Quick response to the problem with our last PCB is greatly appreciated and so this email is a compliment to the excellent service we enjoy and I would be grateful if you could convey this message to sales and the production staff that process our orders.

Thanks again

Kind regards

Yes I would certainly recommend you to others. I have previously recommended you to other people in the hobbyist and small scale manufacturing community. Much easier and much better way of reliable prototyping than would be possible in a home environment.


Also excellent customer service - your staff have gone out of their way to make sure the order is correct ie my Rev A/Rev B mixup.

Always happy with delivered items, communications and price. Paul E November 2014

No complaints in 10 years - Graham December 2014

Thanks Jacqui

Please pass on my thanks to folks there, all three boards look good and I have another for you to do when I've finalised the design.

There will probably be some more next year as well.

All the best,

Martin December 2014


A word of thanks and appreciation, the keypads on the last batch of boards were exactly as we wnanted them. You have made an old man very happy!

Good professional company and transparent pricing and delivery. Well Done KA 14-01-2015

Just thought that you would like to see a photo of this board mated with others that you have assembled in the past. (Actually I think this board came on Wednesday, working flat-out, got confused). A stack of a FPGA board mated with a RF transmitter power module. Thanks for the nice work, Cheers,

Hi Jacqui

I have been using your pcbTrain service for about 10 years, for various projects, working for various clients.

This year, I am doing a lot of development work, and a lot of new designs - all of which are benefitting from the excellent and consistent service that your team provides. 23-03-2015

Hi Jacqui
I would firstly like to thank your team for being very helpful. This was my first time building a PCB and any issues I had were quickly resolved by the help of your team.

  • I found out about the company through an electronic engineer at our company and through the Design spark software which took me to your company after the PCB had been designed.
  • Product quality ? Excellent
  • Delivery ? Excellent
  • Value for money ? Excellent
  • Recommendation to other- certainly
  • Use your company again ? certainly

Thanks for everything

Excellent, great quality PCB far cheaper than anywhere else including those offering poor quality PCB manufacturing. Anthony 2th March 2014

I really like the online quotation/ordering. Validating PCB layouts online against your design rules at the time of ordering would be helpful. Regards, Richard-March 2014

I like your simple and straight forward website. Very well designed. Gives me a quick quote without hassle. Most other places have complicated quoting systems and often the need to wait for an email response. Yours is so much better. Kind regards, Jimmy - March 2014

I selected PCB Train based on a combination of price and delivery time for the express PCB option. Excellent service !!! PM 19th March 2014

Thank you very much for the PCB?s we got this week. They look great TF - 6th March 2014

Subject: PCB Just a short mail to say how pleased I have been with your jolly good service. I received my second board from you yesterday. It arrived sooner than I had anticipated. I am also very impressed with the quality of the boards. I recall that you may have a feedback proforma for customers which I would be happy to complete. Regards, Colin. H, 29th January 2014

Must say, I?m never disappointed with the services of Newbury Electronics. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. That and your excellent delivery record which is quite rare in British Industry these days to be frank. JS ? Aero ? 22nd January 2014

Excellent in all departments. On time, good quality, exceptional value for money, ED 19th November 2013

I think you run a fantastic PCB service, keep up the good work! Kindest regards, David P, 1st November 2013

I was very impressed with the service. The board arrived first thing Monday am, 1 week after the data cut off time, so was better than expected for a 5 day turn board. Will definitely use this service again CDP 24th October 2013

Excellent, great quality PCB for cheaper than anywhere else including those offering poor quality PCB manufacturing. Anthony 23rd October 2013

I would like to say that the service and quality of the boards I received were excellent especially for the delivery time. I heard about PCB train from a friend who also recommended your service to me. Good Work.

KA - Imperial College London August 2013

I heard about PCB train, well it was Newbury Electronics from the search engine. I looked for a professional looking site. Not much experience in electronic circuit boards, but the guys who work with me who do have some experience were quite impressed with the outcome. The product was excellent in my book.
Delivery very swift. Excellent again.

Peter S - August 2013

Can you pass on my thanks to the guy who laid out the recent Sign proto PCB you made; marking the v-score mechanical layer with a thin copper track allows my client to easily see how the board snaps apart! Brilliant work from PCB Train as always !!!!!

Richard L - Warwickshire August 2013

Would you recommend us to others? 100% Would you use us again? Yes, no reason to even consider anybody else. Any further comments? Perfect supplier service very please 100% professional.

I shall be placing more orders with you in the near future. What you get for the price is a great product outstanding service and quick delivery. Many Thanks.

Karl F - January 2013

I heard about PCB Train through a colleague's recommendation

I rate all of your criteria as excellent

I would not hesitate to recommend you to others or to use your service again.

PCB Train is an excellent idea which makes prototyping a PCB or building a low-volume run a practical and affordable proposition.

Jeff W - 14th December 2012

Your company is highly recommended by everyone in the office (electrical and electronic engineering group); and as part of a hobby I decided to use your "pcb express" service and have been very pleased with the product.

Is the first time I use this type of service, but I think the price is excellent, very very economic

Lucas Escribano - Spain - 16th November 2012

Hi there,
This batch of PCBs arrived yesterday and I've inspected a sample of each board. Excellent quality boards and beat your quoted timescale, I couldn't be more impressed. I will be completing the survey shortly and will be ordering more batches from you over the next few weeks.

Thanks very much,
Tom from Sheffield - 5 November 2012

Good information published on your site - substrate datasheets, stackup construction, expected Gerber naming convention, etc.

Pete - 8th November 2012

A colleague used your services and having seen the results I was confident of high quality product Adam P

My friend recommended you due to the excellent quality of your products.

Very pleased with my boards

From a 'you get what you pay for' perspective, the quality of your products is certainly worth the price. Very happy.

Subject: RE: PCB stencil - URGENT

Both packages arrived on time as promised, excellent service, thanks again

Regards - Jason P & G -10 October 2012

I am pleased with both the quality and fast-turn-round on the PCB. I now have a successfully working prototype. You were recommended by an old work colleague of mine, He was kind enough to send me a link to your Website. The bare four layer PCB you supplied is good value and fast for a prototyping service. Overall I am pleased with the service provided by PCB Train and will consider using the service again in the near future. Thank you for the accurate, rapid and trouble free supply.

John D - Great Yarmouth - 4th October 2012

It has been a painless and pleasurable transaction thank you.

B.L. - 4th October 2012

Thank you again for your time and effort in laying out the sensor board PCB. Especially thank you for fitting us in and working 'above the call of duty' . It is very much noted and appreciated.

E.H. September 2012

We received our boards yesterday and were thrilled with the great service and quality of the PCBs. These will be trailed at a design festival this month.

P.K. - 28th September 2012

All the boards have worked, this is the ninth you have made for me with other accounts. Thank you. I would also add that your customer service is also excellent.

F.M. - 25th September 2012

The product quality is excellent for a prototype service. Delivery performance is excellent. orders are always produced and delivered on time. I am certain I will be using you again in the near future.

Thanks for great service and product.

T.A.A.B. - 20th September 2012

The ?Train' Is a brilliant idea for small quantities or prototyping. Excellent, gave me exactly what I required at an affordable price for a small quantity. Well done and thanks.

Peter S - 6th September 2012

I think your service is superb. I would always recommend it to anyone. I wish I could use your service more......

Andy A - 4th September 2012

I am new to pcb design but the free DesignSpark software made everything very precise and will save a lot of time when modifying circuits from now on. Being able to specify fixing holes, mountings and case shapes will save a lot of manual labour and guess work too. Your Technical Support forum promptly answered all my beginner's questions and gave me the confidence to make the jump to professional manufacture. My very first design and batch of 10 pcbs have tested out perfectly running exactly as they should so I'm very pleased and will now continue with your assembly service. Many, many thanks!

FS - 3rd September 2012

Excellent all round service and excellent value for money.

GJB - Coventry - 21st August 2012

Very happy with the PCB Train Express service. Zero hassles and delivered promptly and exactly as described. Can't do much better than that!

RB - 19th July 2012

I'm very happy with the service you provided on this order - straightforward quoting system, sent the files, received the boards when expected and no pain to open the trade account.

Paul - 12th July 2012


Malcolm - 10th July 2012

The board you made is excellent. It's for a Porsche concept car, for the Paris motor show, to provide a means of updating prototype software in instrument cluster display pods.

B Bates - 30th June 2012


Art from Wiltshire - 28th June 2012

We do not do a lot of prototyping here but when we do we need a very fast turnaround with a dependable delivery date. PCB Train delivered on all fronts. Thank you.

Chris from London - 26th June 2012

It's great to have a PCB manufacturer with such an experience and expertise relatively near to Southampton in case things need to be discussed or picked up in person. I have been very happy with the quality and delivery performance.
