When your project is ready to build, it’s time to find a PCB manufacturer. There are tons of them out there, but for prototype purposes cheaper is usually better. [Ian] at Dangerous Prototypes has just announced Dirt Cheap Dirty Boards, a PCB fabrication service for times where quality doesn’t matter too much. [Ian] also discussed the service on the Dangerous Prototypes forum.
The boards are definitely cheap. $12 USD gets you ten 5 cm by 5 cm boards with 100% e-test and free worldwide shipping. You can even choose from a number of solder mask colors for no additional cost. [Ian] does warn the boards aren’t of the best quality, as you can tell in the Bus Pirate picture above. The silkscreen alignment has some issues, but for $1.2 a board, it’s hard to complain. After all, the site’s motto is “No bull, just crappy PCBs.”
The main downside of this service will be shipping time. While the Chinese fab house cranks out boards in two to four days, Hong Kong Post can take up to 30 days to deliver your boards. This isn’t ideal, but the price is right.

There is no perfect thing in the world.You should ask yourself about your most concern and find manufacturer as you think.

I don't think there is a same rule or standard for a good pcb manufacturer.That is decided by buyers' mood,situation,time condition,etc.Of course, manufacturers' capacity,professionalism,and service should not be omitted.

Here are some principles to determine your pcb manufacturer:

1. fast lead time

2. good quality production

3.reasonable pcb price

4.online customer service

Of course, you can think more aspects from your own requirements.
