I tested quite a few before settling on Express PCB, it is free and it was the easiest to use.What's the board say about circuit drawing software? Not a simulator, but hat you use for laying out the traces and pads etc.
My pal uses OmniGlyph and gets good results but he cusses the whole time
It is hard to tell from Sprint-Layout the trial version. Is it wort the difference in price? That depends on a lot of factors that we can only guess at. For most of us that money could be better spent.I've been using sprint layout for years and I reckon it's tops, for a trial I exported both the gerber and drill files and did a sim in Kcam and the sim was exact. So for the cheap cost of this software my opinion it's perfect for the DIY without the huge learning curve of using eagle or some of the other pcb software programs.
