I haven't used Sierra Proto Express, good to know to stay away from them. But I couldn't send this project to them anyway they don't do boards this size.

Heheh... Small world.  Scott Walsh (was a regional sales guy for Advanced Circuits back in the day) runs a lot of the stuff at PCBUniverse (he was VP of Sales last I heard).  IIRC, Scott's brother is here in Portland which I assume is how they located the business here.
The do nice work-- I had them run prototypes of an ~8 layer <4mil trace/space board, controlled impedance, fancy substrate, microvias and some other tricky stuff for a client.  They came in well under half the price of Advanced Circuits and quality was really good.  (Especially after we had to scrap an entire lot from the much more expensive Sierra Proto Express due to a crappy plating job!)  PCBUniverse has a partner fab overseas that does all the actual 'work' (they're basically a sales and fulfillment operation here from what I understand).  That pretty much adds a day to the process for the extra shipping step over the pacific and forward from Oregon.
