Boris K. of
Boris read the different Atari
reviews on Best's XEGS keyboard
upgrade called "XE Touch".
So he placed an Atari order for two set of XE Touch internal upgrade silicone cups for his two Atari XEGS consoles he had from Best. "I just received and already changed the XE best contact upgrade into one of my XEGS keyboards. This is really amazing, it turns this wobbly thing into an actual usable keyboard with a very professional feel to it. I'd say this is a must-buy for any XE owner - wow! Thank you so much for this! Danke! Best regards from Germany"
Jeff J. of FL Jeff contacted Best via E-Mail. He want to upgrade his two old non working carbon dot pad Atari 5200 CX52 Joysticks with Bests exclusive New Lifetime upgraded CX52 Joystick Silicon pads with Gold Metal dots. I just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know that the parts already arrived. I appreciate your excellent communication, and ultra quick order processing time. The buttons exceed my expectations all around. They are tactile, and responsive just like you described. No more mushy CX52 controllers! Thank you so much, and have a great day!

"I had the chance to change the switches and power adapter I bought from you. Everything worked like a charm. You're a lifesaver, these parts are really hard to find. Thanks alot"

Billy F. of Scotland Billy asked Best "I was wondering if you could help me troubleshoot to see what I would need to buy to fix my Atari. I have a PAL CX2600U 6 switch. I haven't had much luck with most forums and people have been recommending yourself. Any help or recommendation of parts needed would be really helpful." A couple E-Mails back and forth and Billy placed an Atari 2600 PAL chip order with Best. "I would just like to thank you for your help in restoring my Atari back to its former glory. Working again like the day it was born. Your service is second to none. Thanks again for your help. From Scotland"

322+ Additional Best Customer Atari Feedback Comments from all over the World
Best Electronics has been Sold Out of the very popular Wizztronics Atari 8 bit Midimax MIDI interfaces for close to 6 – 7+ years now. Not to use the over used “RARE” word on E-Bay Atari listings, the MIDIMAX product is one step more. In the last 10+ year of watching for Atari items on E-bay every single day, I think in total, we have only seen one used Wizztronics MIDIMAX listed and sold on E-Bay. Think of it, have you ever seen a Wizztronics Atari MIDIMAX ever listed on E-bay at all? World wide Atari 8 Bit Computer (400 (48K), 800 (48K), 1200XL, 800XL, 65XE / 130XE and XE Game owners simply will not part with their highly prized Atari MIDIMAX interface. With an inexpensive MIDI Keyboard you can now learn how to use MIDI Synthesizers, Drum machines, Write/Save, Play and Modify Music without the normal High cost of a normal MIDI system and Atari ST, PC or Mac Computer. With the MIDIMAX MIDI interface, standard MIDI Keyboard, 2 MIDI cables and an Atari 8 bit computer with disk drive, you have a Brand New application for your Classic Atari 8 bit Computer!!
We have some interesting News on the Atari MIDIMAX product

E-Bay is a great place for Atari Bargains, but over the

Used Atari items that have No
