I can't use that company because the quantities have to be high for those prices. I remember you had to place an order of like 50 or 100.
I am using the boardhouse I am because of two reasons. I know the quality they do ( I have reviewed masked samples) and I can save a ton on shipping since I wouldn't have to cover shipping from Oregon and then shipping each to everyone else.
Also if there's a problem, I can just run up to the boardhouse and they will work with me. I don't know what that company is like, or how they handle problems if something is found.
With prices that low, I sorta worry that they cut some corners, like using cheap green mask tht would flake off in heat.

Yes, there are numerous errors in the Atari schematics. I plan to put together a list some time after I get this board run done.

Basically I reverse engineered the Quantum PCB starting with the schematics and working forward. Took me over a year to do, but it's done and I have my working prototype.

BTW, in your adventures with Quantum, did you discover an errata for the schematics that list members might want to be aware of?
