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.
Wade contacted Best about 1/2 month ago, looking for a Reconditioned Atari 1040STE computer that he wanted to be upgraded to 4 Meg of memory (Atari's official name / model for that Atari 1040STE computer upgraded to 4 Meg of memory is 4160STE) At that time we told Wade there was a couple weeks delay / wait on getting an Atari 4160STE Computer for him. Wade put in an order for one. "Thanks for the timely delivery of my new 4160STE. The unit looks simply amazing and works flawlessly - both are attributes Iíve come to expect from Best over the years! Thanks again for great service and a great product!"
Roy L of CA Earlier this year Roy purchased an Atari 130XE computer from Best to upgrade from he old Atari 400 Computer he was using for years. "I donít care for the key action on the 130XE. If I remember right, you mentioned that the keyboard on the 130XE I bought from you is upgradeable. Is that correct" The Atari answer to Roy's question was Yes. Roy was referring to Bests XE Touch upgrade internal silicon contacts for one of the two Atari XE keyboards made, that gets rid of the mushy feeling XE key caps. Roy purchased a set of XE Touch contacts. "Much better! almost feels like the old IBM XT keyboard." This is Roy's second feed back comment to Best.
Guillermo G. of FL This is Guillermo's third customer feed back comment to Best. "Thank you again for all your help. I don't know what I could have done without Best Electronics. You have solved many of my computer issues throughout the years."
Andrew R. of NY Andrew contacted Best Electronics because he was looking for an Atari 1040STE computer in prime shape. Andrew said he was going to use the Atari 1040STE computer a little, but when it was not being used, he planned to put it into a clear show case, as an Atari ST Display / Museum computer. We suggested to Andrew get one of Best Reconditioned Atari 1040STE computers. We also told Andrew, we could upgrade his reconditioned 1040STE from 1 Meg of memory up to 4 Megs of memory and upgrade the stock 1040STE TOS operating system to the last TOS Atari made TOS 2.06. Both 1040STE upgrades Robert went with on his reconditioned Atari 1040STE. Best also installed one of the official 4160STE labels (Atari official model number for a 4 meg 1040STE computer) on his upgraded STE Computer. "Just a quick note to say I received the machine in perfect condition (A1 on the packing, this is how it should be done!) and it works great!"
Edward B. of IN By Edwards low Best Customer number, we can tell he has been a Best Atari customer for over 20+ years now. Edward ordered one of Bests Falcon Compact Flash (Solid state replacement for the Falcon internal 2 1/2 inch mechanical Hard Drive mech.) upgrades kits. "Just wanted to say that installed my CF upgrade for my Falcon. It is wonderful and works like a charm. I cannot believe the speed in the boot process. Now all I have to do is setup the boot partition. Thanks much for this and thanks much for the very fast service. I did not expect the upgrade to arrive in just two days time. You guys are awesome. Thanks again"
