We use an LPKF PCB routing prototyper. It does the job, as long as you use it for that which it was intended. I.e Prototypes, its pretty quick, I can turnaround a PCB in a couple of hours with plated thru holes etc. But no solder resist or multi layer, I belive you can get the equipment to do it, but it is mighty expensive. If you want to put these PCBs into units of in the field then I would try a different avenue. All in all, for prototyping it is ok, although the cost savings vs external manufacturer is negligable once you take into account someone operating it for a few hours a day.

Hope this helps..

Pete
