Index page / Site listing




One of the more common Atari Questions / E-Mails we get, do you really have that Atari part or Atari item in stock.  I have checked the world wide Internet and you are the only one that lists it?  I noticed that your that your Atari web page(s) have not been updated (bottom of each Best Web page has a last updated date) for weeks, months or years?  When we cleared out the local Atari Sunnyvale Warehouses here over a 10 to 15 year period, we hauled in thousands and thousands of Pallets of Atari Goods.  Some Atari items we have a lifetime supply of (hence why the Best Atari web page for that product never gets updated) and other Atari items have sold out fast to the world wide Atari users and collectors.


Here is a chronological listing of all Best Atari Web site Updates, Corrections or New Atari items since it went up in early 2002. 

 As you will see, we keep the Best Atari Web site current and up to date for all Atari Consumer products we support.

Best Electronics was Voted "The Best Atari Supporting Company" in the World.  By World Wide Atari users,  in the Independent online, MyAtari 2002 and 2003 web site Surveys and 1st Runner up in the  2004 Survey!  Survey was not run in 2005 - 2014!



Best Atari Customer feed back:

All comments are spontaneous unsolicited Best customer feed back comments and are posted here with the permission of each Best customer.


Brice Z. of Canada  Best sent Brice one of our Reconditioned / Upgraded Gold Lifetime CX52 Joysticks.  "I received the reconditioned 5200 controller (almost 3 weeks ago) and it works flawlessly.  Shipping was very fast and the environmentally friendlier packaging (with biodegradable foam peanuts) is a nice touch."


Ed M. of UK   Ed originally contacted Best looking for a replacement ST Megafile 20 top and bottom case set for his very yellow old one.  We explained to Ed because of the high cost of International shipping to the UK ($$), it might not be cost effective for him.  He looked over the Best Atari Web site again and decided to get one of Bests reconditioned New looking Atari Megafile 30 ST external Hard Drives.  Best swapped out the internal US 110 Volt power supply for a 220 / 240 Volt UK version No Charge.  "Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for the Megafile - it arrived yesterday - lovely cosmetic condition, and works perfectly of course. Hope to do business with you again in future!"


Enrique S. of TX   Enrique was have some problems connecting up his Atari XE Game System to his display.  Two to three E-Mail back and forth, Best determined Enrique had a bad XE Game system motherboard.  Best sent him a New drop in XE Game System US motherboard.  "Just to report I installed the XEGS motherboard last night and everything went super. I was playing computer Chess and Pacman in no time!"


Michael T. of CA  Michael purchased one of the rare (down to the last of them) new in the box Atari made 1064 Plug in Ram upgrade modules that takes his stock 16K Atari 600XL and upgrades the memory to 64K and same amount of memory as the Atari 800XL Computer.  "I received the 1064 memory upgrade the other day.  It looks and works perfect.  Its so nice to have Best Electronics as my #1 source for reliable Atari gear.  I am currently browsing your website looking for my next purchase.  Thanks so much!"  


Frank S. of OH   Frank was having some problems with his old Atari 2600 6 switch console, he read our 2600 information at the Best web site Atari 2600 parts section and even included a picture of his old motherboard (with his E-Mail to Best) to make sure we sent him the right 6 switch 2600 replacement motherboard (two versions are available and not interchangeable) "I received my replacement motherboard in the mail today.  Thanks for the super-fast shipping; I really appreciate it.  I just finished installing it and played my first game of Space Invaders in over 20 years.  And, I’m also happy to say, that I can now play Defender and Outlaw without the annoying glitches the old motherboard produced.  This is awesome.  Thanks again for the great service."


Lou M. of CA   Upon receiving an E-Mail from Best telling Lou his latest Atari order was just shipped to him.  "Thank you very much, not only for the outstanding service (as always), but for your continued support of the Atari community worldwide. No other platform out there has a nice guy with warehouses full of great stuff that they can depend on. We Atarians really have it good!"

I over paid for an eBay logoAtari item!  E-Bay is a great place for Atari Bargains, but over the last 7 to 10 years we have seen E-bay bidders over pay for thousands of New and Used Atari items that have No Warranty at all, when Best Electronics has the exact same New Atari item in stock for less money with the normal Atari 90 Day Warranty (same Atari Warranty for the last 30+ years) and in most cases with cheaper shipping charges.  So when you find an Atari item on E-Bay you are thinking about bidding on, suggest you come to the Best Atari Web site to find if Best Electronics has the same New Atari item in stock.  Remember that not all of the over 5,000+ Atari items we have in stock are listed at this Atari web site, only the more popular ones we get requests for.  If you can not find it on this all Atari web site, send us an E-Mail:  The lesson here is, you should always check the Best Web site before bidding on any Atari item and do not get caught up in E-Bay Bidding fever or get caught by an E-Bay land shark trying to get over market value for an Atari item.  If you do have a problem with your Atari E-Bay item you won and it is sold as Seller does not offer returns, you can come to Best Electronics to get the Atari replacement parts or free Best Atari Technical advice on how to fix your ailing E-Bay Atari item.
