it_user5520 - PeerSpot reviewer
Network Manager at a manufacturing company with 501-1,000 employees
A sophisticated PCB program providing high quality results for an affordable price.

What is most valuable?

This is the best printed circuit board design software focusing on layout and design. Very user friendly program. Definitely will get your moneys worth. Stable, cost effective, yet sophisticated and powerful. There are lots of upgrades and add ons available to meet all users needs. This is ready out of the box.

What needs improvement?

This software program is a bit pricey, but for the quality work able to be produced you can't go wrong. The technical support is not as efficient. Constant upgrades needed. I would like to have had more features included without having to upgrade as much.

What other advice do I have?

This is a savvy, affordable software program providing a high quality design of pcbs. I chose because it is user friendly, allows for all types of users to create sophisticated work. There are constant upgrades available. The ROI is great too. Stands out above other programs of the kind as it meets all users levels. This program has been around for several years, which clearly demonstrates the high quality of the program. Portrays excellent work from the software programmer to the end user.
