Outsourcing site review

Hi,

I have a website design project that I'd like to outsource. Does anyone know of a website that reviews the various outsourcing sites/marketplaces?

I'm just learning about the outsourcing market websites. Being a newbie, I'd like to go with a well-known outsourcing marketplace. What are the top five for web design?

I'm finding YouTube videos and resources on individual outsourcing marketplaces. But I'm really looking for a comparison of the top ones. Any ideas?

Thanks

If you want to hire the type of person that will virtually work for free, those would be the places.  The clients that are happy with any of their output either don't care or don't know any better.

As far as reviews, google is your friend.  But read many of them as most the the reviews you are reading will be biased by an affiliate type of agreement.  

A disclaimer, I am biased and I loath all of these crowd sourced for talent sites.  This sums up just about any of them and could be for web, graphic design, photography, video, voice over....  http://storyfix.com/why-elance-sucks-lately

There are hundreds of ways to make a similar visual experience for a web page and only one or two of those are actually the "correct" or most up to date way.   In addition to just making your page/site, how have you taken into consideration SEO/PR/Inbound marketing?   There are a lot more aspects then just monkey see, monkey do.

With those types of crowd sourced sites, you will get a low budget, short term fix, that is a set up for long term issues you will not understand.

And that, is my biased opinion.
