Problem with BatchPCB Board

Today I finally recieved the PCB I ordered from BatchPCB about 1�½ month ago.
Unfortunately PCB isn’t going to work as there is alot of planes being mistakenly ‘poured’ onto a trace!

Today I got the full amount returned from Batch-PCB, including the shipping. Nice guys over there!

Here is some images about the problems…

    That’s unfortunate about your board.

    My boards have worked, however copper pours have been a source of false failures on my submitted files, pretty much almost every time.

    I’ve noticed the boards I’ve gotten have silkscreen lines with “edges” and often aren’t straight!

    That’s the first time I ever seen it on a PCB.

    But yes, they’re nice guys over there at Sparkfun.

    Hi Marty.
    My silkscreens have edged/ghost effects too. I think it’s something to do with the manufactor!
    But BatchPCB is a cheap provider too, so I don’t mind the silkscreen edges, just as long as the board works 🙂

    Daaang. They need a better fab.
