Ben G. of WI   Ben ordered one of Bests 2nd Generation Atari ST computer Multi Sync adapter cables.  "I received my MultiSync cable today and it works wonderfully!  Thanks for the super fast shipment!"

                     

Jim F. of AZ.   Jim ordered two sets of Bests exclusive made CX52 Gold dot Lifetime upgrade parts for two bad Atari 5200 CX52 carbon dot Joysticks he had.  "Thank you, thank you, thank you!  The order of the 5200 Controller Replacement Parts (gold) arrived quickly with exactly what I ordered.  Best of all, in no time flat my two Atari 5200 controllers were fully functional! I used rubber cement, as your site suggested, to secure the flex circuits. Once everything was back together, they worked! No fiddling needed. Galaxian, here I come!"

       

Aaron L. of TX   Aaron has placed 3 to 4 different Atari orders with Best Electronics.  This time Aaron wanted take advantage of Best's CX52 Exchange Joystick program (the most cost effective method) and sent in two CX52 Joystick cores for exchange for some of Bests Reconditioned / Upgraded CX52 Gold dot Lifetime Joysticks.   "Wow! These CX52 Gold Joysticks have completely exceeded my (high) expectations! They are a pleasure to use and make the 5200 as it should always have been. Thanks for your continued efforts on this front! Realsports Baseball is so much fun to play with these joysticks!!"  Aaron did notice a minor problem on his 5200 console, where the game cursor on some 5200 games would not go to the far right.  He read the Best CX52 Joystick trouble shooting sheet that we include with each Best CX52 Gold Joystick.  One E-Mail back and forth to Aaron, Best concluded that his 35+ year Atari 5200 console had drifted off the Atari Factory 5200 port settings very very slightly. So Aaron arranged to Call Best Electronics with his 5200 console near the phone and Best talked him thru the very very minor port adjustment Aaron had to do on his old 5200 motherboard.  A total time on the phone of less that 5 minutes and Aaron's 35+ year old Atari 5200 console was again back to the Atari 5200 Factory port settings.  All of Aarons 5200 game cursor problems of not going the far right went away.

Matt M. of WA  On placing his 3rd in a row Atari order for the month of May with Best Electronics, Matt wanted to order the Mega Touch ST Keyboard Key Cap springs that stiffen up the mushy ST keyboard key caps.  Best recommended that he would be much better off getting the Best TT Touch 1040STE Keyboard internal Silicon upgrade cups.  "Installed those rubber cups on my STEís keyboard this morning ó BIG improvement! Thanks!"

                   

Kimmo P. of Sweden  Kimmo contacted Best, a couple of E-Mails back and forth.  He placed an Atari order for one of Bests Custom made 2nd Generation ST Multi Sync adapter cables, a HD 15 gender change for the Best cable, 1 each Best Atari Hong Kong, and Taiwan made STM1 Mouse rebuild kits.  "Thank you very much! I received the products yesterday. Excellent quality!

But I found another LCD TV that does work in all three resolutions and it is not listed in table of supported monitors on your site. You may want to add it. I have not found the supported horiz. and vertical frequency range in the documentation, but the model is Denver DFT-1904. It has a 19" inch widescreen display. The display cannot be rescaled to 4:3 in PC mode, but it autoscales the picture in a nice way so low res. looks fine anyway."

I did as you suggested ... I took the consul apart and found the 3 soldered joints ...They looked fine ... But I moved the jack and noticed a bit of movement in the 3 prongs ... So I did a nice job re soldering them ... Reattached the system to the TV ... Put in a cartridge and turned it on ... And guess what ??? Looks like the system was made yesterday ... YAHOO...My 11 year old  grandson is very happy ... He says he would some day like to pass it on to his children ... Imagine an 11 year old today wanting to even bother with that old system ... Hope you have a great day ... You sure made mine ... Rick"

        

Joey S. of Canada  Joey sent in two old Atari CX52 non working Joysticks for exchange, for some of Bests Reconditioned / Upgraded all Gold lifetime CX52 Joysticks.  "Just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that I received the controllers and had a chance to give one of the sticks a play.  Holy cow!  These are top notch!  I was enjoying my 5200 before by using a 2600 stick and a redemption box but I couldn't enjoy the analog control games. The analog sticks are wonderful... sure there are games like PAC man that benefit from a digital stick by the 5200 sticks are awesome for Star Wars arcade and others!  Overall, I am a satisfied customer and Would recommend these refurbished sticks to anyone with a 5200!"

I'm seriously impressed with the quality of the packaging itself, and the products as well! Everything looks like it was taken straight off a store shelf in '89, brand-spankin' new, and all set to dial up and relive a bit of history.

Thanks a ton."

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.

Jon B. of the UK.  Jon contacted Best with a two to three page large Atari order.  We told Jon because of the very high cost of International shipping to the UK, it would not be cost effective for him.  Jon located a Freight forwarding company in the US that would take his many many Atari shipments (Best had to break up his very very large Atari order into 4 to 6 smaller Atari orders) consolidate them and send them to him in the UK at a good cost saving on International shipping costs.  "Just to let you know that I have received all of the items now in the UK, I have repaired my Atari 800 and I am really pleased.  Thanks so much for supplying the items, my six year old daughter really loves playing Galaxians!  I will be in touch later on in the year to buy some more bits from you.

Jim R. of MD  Jim ordered some new Atari 2600 Joystick and Atari 5200 Joystick replacement ports.  He also got two new Atari CX40 Joysticks that had been upgraded with Best CX40 Lifetime Gold PCB boards.  "I received the joysticks today.  I can honestly say I am blown away by the quality of these sticks!  Does the world know you sell these?

Jeff F. of ?  Jeff contacted Best via E-Mail.  He was thinking of purchasing an Atari CX53 Trackball that was listed with a problem.  He wanted to check to see if Best had a certain CX53 new replacement part in stock.   We told yes we did have that new Atari part is in stock, but in most cases that will not fix the CX53 Trackball problem.  We gave Jeff some Atari CX53 Tech tips on how to check out on his CX53 Trackball when he received it and how to possibly fix that CX53 Trackball problem before he purchases any Atari CX53 Trackball replacement parts from Best.  "I'll go ahead and purchase the trackball.  This is going to be interesting!   Also, I just want to say, thank you so much for creating and maintaining such an awesome site.  I'm an old school gamer that is getting back into gaming and thank you so much for creating a site such as this.  I've literally spent hours reading and learning from your webpage.

Mike O. of MN  "I just wanted to write you and thank you for the prompt service and excellent quality of my recent Atari order (Universal RF Adapter and boxed Galaxian).  The order arrived faster than I expected, the packaging was I think the best I've seen to date.  Also including the print outs of various articles and pricing lists was an appreciated bonus as well."  The normal Atari information flyers Best includes with each Atari order we ship out world wide.  "I'm really glad Best Electronics exists, I have been looking for an alternative to Ebay that I can regularly go through as I build my Atari collection.  Having grown tired of modern video games and with the inflated prices of the various classic Nintendo and Sega platforms that I grew up with, I've decided to start collecting exclusively Atari systems from here on.  I think it's safe to say with such quick service, excellent packaging, how you take orders the good old fashioned way over the telephone instead of through some impersonal online form, and of course the fact you're probably the
closest thing to "factory direct" Atari products still in existence, that you've earned a new repeat customer, and I look forward to doing business with Best Electronics again in the future."

 

Aaron L. of TX  Aaron wanted work on this ailing Atari 7800 console.  So he ordered from Best Electronics, New Atari 7800 replacement switches, Bests 7800 Composite Video upgrade Kit and Bests 7800 Euro OS upgrade Kit.  The new 7800 switches made Aaron's hard to turn on old 7800 console, act like it was brand new 7800 again.  The second 7800 upgrade Aaron did, the Best 7800 Composite Video mod went very well for Aaron and he was very happy with the 1st two 7800 upgrades he did.  But Aaron run into a problem with the 3rd 7800 Euro OS upgrade he was trying to install on his 7800 console.  Several Atari Information tips and Atari trouble shooting tips and E-Mails from our Atari 30+ Super Tech:

"Success!,  I couldn't have done it without your support!  You were correct: I "jumped the 7800 cut trace and moved the OS chip shorting jumper back to the original place" and was still experiencing no functionality."  We advised Aaron to put his 7800 back to a stock 7800 OS set up again.  "You were also correct: I had, cracked a trace under (solder side) or on the top side of the 7800 OS chip location.  I removed the IC socket (for the third time!) and finally discovered which top side motherboard trace I had damaged in the initial removal of the original OS chip.  One short jumper wire is all that was needed to correct the problem.  I did thoroughly read your excellent instructions which warned me about this, but in my limited experience I didn't take your warning seriously enough!  I now own the best Atari 7800 that I've ever owned!!
Thanks so much!"

 

Marius D. of the Netherlands  Marius purchased one of the rare Atari Factory 400 48K Ram upgrade kits.  "This was FAST!  Today received the package, and installed in my 400.  Everything works PERFECT!  Great deal, and thanks for your perfect handling!  My 400 is very cool now. Thanks again!" 

                 

Johnny K. of CA  "Absolutely the BEST place to find your ATARI items!  Shipping is extremely quick and customer service is excellent.  The gentleman on the phone even persuaded me NOT to purchase an item which I really thought would help my problem.  That is a sign to me about how special they are.  A business run in this unique way with strange hours and way of operating doesnít last unless itís unique and special.  Be sure to purchase the catalog, I bet youíll find something there which you didnít even know existed or could really use for your system or computer.  Fun stuff!  You are looking for the BEST place to find items for your ATARI, which you have now found."

 

James A. of CO  "Thanks for your fast response the other week regarding my question on the ATARI 400 interlock switch.  Your dedication to customer service and willingness to answer any ATARI question is fantastic.  BEST ELECTRONICS has always treated me well, and I appreciate it!"

 

Justin G. of MS  "Well Best Electronics strikes again! I ordered "Pitfall and Wolfenstein 3D" for the Atari Jaguar Console and 3 days later they were at my door. Securely packaged and factory sealed in **MINT** condition!!! Included were the inserts, manuals and overlay. I highly recommend Best Electronics for any Atari collector!!!!!        Thx Best"

 

Benjamin H. of TX   "As always, everything arrived very quickly, professionally packaged, and in perfect condition, just as described on the website.  The Epyx 500XJ joystick is the absolute BEST joystick for playing any version of Pac-Man on an Atari!  It offers a nice 'clicky' tactile feel that can't be matched on any other joystick, believe me, I've tried nearly every other one and nothing comes close to the Epyx 500XJ! Worth every penny!"  Benjamin got one of Best Atari new Jaguar Power pad and adapter cable to other Atari systems Combo special.  "The BEST Custom made Jaguar Pad Adapter: For anybody who prefers a joypad style controller for playing Atari, it really doesn't get any better than the slick and ergonomic Atari Jaguar controller pad from the 1990's.  I haven't played a Jaguar since 1998, so I had completely forgot how comfortable the Atari Jaguar pad feels in adult hands. The pad moves extremely smoothly and the buttons offer a nice solid feel. I was able to achieve much higher scores on Pitfall II and Keystone Kapers using the Jag pad, and it feels as solid and as comfortable as it always did back in the 90's. Awesome build quality on the adapter cable as well, so glad to be able to use a great joypad-style controller for when a particular Atari game calls for it!  All of the Atari 2600 games I ordered arrived in mint condition and still sealed in their factory laminate, which is quite amazing when you remember how old many of these games are. There's nothing quite like opening a brand new Atari game for the first time and experiencing the excitement of putting a brand new game into your Atari console. I get all kinds of flashbacks from the 80's whenever this happens and it's always such a thrill to receive brand new games from such a great source!  Keep up the great work and thanks for being such a solid and reliable source for all my Atari needs!"

This is Benjamin's third feed back comment to Best.  See his other feed back comments below.

 

Steve N. of Australia  "I got order yesterday. Did you use a rocket ship for transport as it only took 7 days to get here. Quicker than stuff from local sources here.   Anyway was well packed and no problems. Thanks so much :) 

 

Paul W. of OR  Paul ordered one of Bests Reconditioned Jaguar CD Players.  "The CD player works flawlessly, and as always, was packaged to perfection." Each New and Reconditioned Jaguar CD Player Bests sells, comes with Bests Atari Tech Tips information sheet to extend the useful life of any Atari Jaguar CD player.  This Tech tip sheet is based on the Atari Jaguar CD Players sent into Best for repair, that could of been prevented by these Best Tech tips.  "The included tips tell me how most of them were broken ..lack of common sense and basic mistreatment.  Most happy with my purchase!"

 

Benjamin H. of TX  "Just wanted to say thanks! Got the board today"  Ben was trying to do a board level of an old Atari 2600A motherboard.  The more 2600 components he unsoldered and replaced on the old Atari 2600A motherboard, the problems seemed to get worse. So Ben found Best Electronics and ordered one of Bests New drop in replacement 2600A Motherboards.  "I am a very happy camper! Will probably order some joystick rebuild parts in the coming weeks. Thanks for your prompt service!"

 

Benjamin H. of TX  "I also wanted to say that it's been a pleasure buying from you. The stuff from my last order arrived quickly, and it's nice to be able to buy from people outside of eBay. I had no idea that you had so much Atari inventory on hand, and reading about your business in the print ad you sent was really interesting. Looking forward to doing more business with you very soon."

 

Keith C. of TX  "Hello Best Electronics, I am sending this message to say how unbelievably happy I am with my purchase from you.

The 7800 controller is awesome!"  Atari CX78 Joypad  "No more arthritis pain from the dreaded ProLine(PainLine) controllers.)" CX24 Atari Joystick "Had a lot of fun with Mario Bros. Thank You Best Electronics! You made my day with these controllers and a happy gamer! You got yourselves a future customer! BTW you told me I would get my order by this Friday. And I got it today on Monday!?!?!? Lightning fast!! Thanks for everything!!! You guys are simply THE BEST!!! I will recommend all my retro gaming friends to you! THANKS A MILLION GUYS!!!

Justin G. of MS  "I got my refurbished Jaguar CD console yesterday and once again Best Electronics stands TRUE. You guys are a force to be reckoned with.  Keep up the good work!  Absolutely no complaints here!!!!!!!"  Justin's second feed back comment to Best Electronics.  See his 1st feed back comment on the link below.

 

Beniot R. of France   "Just received my Lynx (So fast !!).  It's in perfect condition and work flawlessly. Thank you very much!"  When Beniot 1st contacted Best we told him that with the high cost of International shipping to France and incoming French Custom charges a Best Reconditioned Lynx I console might not be cost effective for him.  Beniot answered back "but with the euro/dollar conversion, $70 is still a good bargain for a working Lynx in France!"

 

Justin G. of MS  Justin purchased an 'as is' Jaguar console off E-Bay.  We gave Justin some Atari Tech tips on the Jaguar Motherboards but it ended up as another piece of E-Bay Atari scrap.  Justin purchased one of Bests drop in replacement Jaguar US replacement motherboards.  "I got my replacement motherboard today, popped it right in and my Jaguar worked like a charm just as advertised.  I've gotta tell you this definitely brought back some memories.  I felt like a kid again. This is awesome.  I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm very satisfied in Best Electronics!!!!! 2 thumbs up!!!! Thx"

 

Ben C. of TX   Ben purchased one of Bests XE Touch keyboard internal upgrade contacts for his Atari 130XE keyboard.  "The keyboard upgrade is great; the feel of the keys is much better than it was before."

Follow up Comment:  "It is indeed a very interesting piece for me because I worked in the past for Lucent Technologies Microelectronics, and we made wafers like these, so double interest for me also being an Atari fan."

 

Miguel S. of Portugal  "I need to thank you very much for a lot of reasons.  So, I'm happy and the order arrived quickly here.  Second, thanks for the perfect packaging, it protects very well the order.  If I need more Atari stuff, you know I will be in touch with you in the future again!  Excellent company and service !

Jose L. of Spain  "Iíve received my order, everything is OK, the packaging was excellent and everything arrived in perfect condition, thank you very much.

Ben L. of GA  "I finally placed my Lynx order for a refurbished system, battery pack and large carrying case, along with a replacement 7800 power supply and, what the heck, some joystick rebuild kits for the Atari 2600.  When the package arrived, I was very pleasantly surprised.  First off, the box itself was covered in Atari packing tape, which was a really nice touch.  Iím happy to say the refurbished Lynx came in Ďlike newí condition and screen looks fantastic.  The large Lynx carrying case was new in the box and the NiCad battery pack works great.  All in all, opening the package brought a smile to my face."  "The Best Electronics website may be a little retro compared to contemporary eCommerce sites, but I have to say, Bradley is great with helping you with your order via email.  If you are in the market for some old Atari items, or even new items, I highly recommend browsing the Best website.  They really cater to the Atari fan"

 

Rodrigo G. of Brazil   Rodrigo ordered some Atari CX40 Joystick new Fire buttons, new CX40 Rubber boot and Best exclusive Atari CX40 Joystick Improved / Upgraded Rebuild kits with the Bests CX40 Gold Lifetime PCB board.  "Last night I installed the new parts on my old joysticks.

I feel my joysticks like new again! Thanks!"

 

Ken S. of NY  Ken contacted Best Electronics late June 2013.  He said he had a bad Atari 2600A console and was thinking about getting one of Best Electronics complete Reconditioned 2600A systems.  We suggested to Ken it would be more cost effective for him to get a new drop in (Phillips Screwdriver Job) Atari 2600A replacement US Motherboard.  We sent Ken a new 2600A US Motherboard on July 1, 2013.  Toward the end of July Ken contacted Best Electronics and said his new Atari 2600A motherboard had developed some 2600 sound issues.  We said for him to send it back in and he did.  It arrived on a Monday afternoon.  Our 29+ year Atari Super tech, jumped right on it.  He had the problem fixed and sent back the 2600A motherboard back to Ken the same Monday evening.  "I received the replacement motherboard and the boxed Mousetrap game yesterday. Thanks for your fast service and the unexpected gift!  I've installed the new board and all is well.  Thanks again for your amazing service!  Best is an amazing resource and company."

 

Steve M. of IL    Steve placed a large ($$$) Atari order for some New Atari Lynx and New Jaguar Games, other Atari hardware and Atari Controllers.  "Everything arrived as expected, thanks again! Keep up the good work for us Atari fans!"

 

Gordon M. of CT  "Thanks so much, I received my package today!"  Gordon contacted Best Electronics about sending in his Atari 800 computer with a keyboard problem for repair.  Because of the very heavy nature of the Atari 800 8 bit computer with the internal die casting RF shield, we told Gordon it would not be cost effective for him to send it in for repair and back to him.  Best suggested a new drop in (Phillips screwdriver job) Atari OEM US 800 replacement Keyboard he could very easily install himself.  I am very impressed by your professionalism and service. Thanks so much.

                  

Del M. of TX   Del was going to be in San Jose, CA area on a business trip for a week.  Del had made arrangements via E-Mail to pick up some Atari items he needed from Best Electronics.  "I did post on Atari Age Forum that I had a great experience at your shop.  It generated a lot of responses.  Hope to do more business in the near future."

Ben F. of the UK   "Got the Jag CD last month from you and have it set up now with a power supply.  Brilliant item.  Thanks for your great service!"  Ben was looking for complete Atari Jaguar CD Player sent to England.  We recommend to Ben, because of the Very high cost of International Shipping to the UK and the heavy nature of the complete Jaguar CD Player, that he should get Bests Reconditioned Atari Jaguar CD player only and get the Atari Jaguar CD software and UK Atari Jaguar Power supply in the Euro Zone, where shipping costs are about 1/5 to 1/6 of the high cost of International shipping.

 

David M. of WV    "thanks for your help. I have Best Electronics saved in my favorites file and will check from time to time to see if you have anything else I might need for my system. I still enjoy playing Atari games and appreciate your company keeping the Atari tradition going strong."  David was putting his old Atari 800 back in use and purchased a Best Enhanced Atari Composite Video Cable for his Atari 800 Computer and a couple or our Atari CX40 Gold Joystick Rebuild kits.

Follow up Comment:   "thanks for your help."  David was having a problem with his New Enhanced Atari Composite cable he just received.  "I got my system going, the picture is very good and the RF interference is gone.

You truly are an asset to the Atari gaming community. Have a great day!

 

Mike H. of OH   "I received the system today, and it works wonderfully -- thanks!"  Mike got one of Bests Recondtioned 7800 Consoles with the Atari Engineering Composite Video and the Euro 7800 OS Mods.  "I think the first thing I noticed (other than the excellent composite output) is how easily the cartridges are to insert. The two used systems I tried previously were very fussy and hard to seat the games, but they pop in neatly and easily on this system."

 

Matt F. of VA   "I ordered a CX78 joypad, light gun, and Sentinel for the 7800. I want to thank you for the speedy shipment and let you know that the light gun *does* work with my 7800."  Before Matt brought the Best Atari Light gun for his CX7800 Console and Atari 7800 Sentinel Light Gun Game, we explained to Matt, that the 7800 Consoles we not 100% Tested at the Atari 7800 production / assembly line for proper use of any Atari Light Gun and we have run across a very small percentage of 7800 consoles will not properly work with any Atari or Best Light Gun made or Atari 7800 Light Gun games made.

Otherwise, it displays fine."  We talked to our 28+ year Atari Super Tech about this Atari ST Stacy LCD display problem.  He gave Ron some Atari Tech tips to try on his ailing Atari ST Stacy LCD display.  "Please tell your tech "thanks!" and give him a big hearty pat on the back for me. :) I did what he said, and I'm slowly getting the streaks/lines out. At first,  they would just disappear and then come back. After I kept doing it for a while, and repeatedly, it started working. I'm down to a few streaks in one corner. I think I'll have them all gone before long."

Thank you again for your time and help."

Owen S. of CO  (Owens second Best feed back comment)  "The more I do business with you, the more impressed I am: the amazing turn around time on my XF551 last week;"  Owen had a minor problem with a new Atari XF551 Disk Drive he bought from Best, in came back on a Monday and was turned around the same day and shipped back to Owen.  "consistently shipping new orders both quickly and carefully; your incredible, vast and varied Atari inventory; and the honest, veteran advice and decades worth of Atari expertise.  With your help my new Atari 130XE system is really starting to take shape, already off to a great start: if you build it, they will play..."

 

Branton O'B. of Australia  "Just wanted to let you know I received my order yesterday, and had time to install the cartridge connector in my 2600. Tricky install, but that just makes it all the more rewarding. I love that I can just pop the game in and have it start up first time, every time. I can even knock it around a bit and not lose my game! I haven't installed the pots yet,"  Bests New Super Paddle Pots for the Atari CX30 Paddles.   "but I'm certain I'll be just as impressed. Cleaning the old cartridge connector and pots only got me so far, but I'll be sure to make these new one last. Many thanks!"

 

Ryan D. of MN  "The package arrived today," Ryan ordered one of Bests Reconditioned Jaguar CD Player with some Jaguar CD Games.  "as a first time customer I am really impressed with the careful packing (the Atari tape is a great touch) and the printouts you sent along with the Jaguar CD. I had fun looking through the Atari information you sent and really appreciated the CD tips that came packaged with the Jaguar CD.  I followed the instructions and was careful attaching the CD unit and everything works flawlessly.  In addition the CD unit looks brand new.  I am very pleased I found your site before purchasing a questionable Ebay unit for way too much money. Great prices and great service, I'll be back.  Thanks again!"

 

Stan S. of KY  "My Atari universal switchbox, Millipede, and joystick controller upgrades came in today and they are great!  Thank you all.  You are the best."

Joe S. of MN   "Thanks again for your assistance with calibrating my Atari 5200 console."  Joe had exchanged out some old non working Atari CX52 Joysticks for Best Reconditioned CX52 Joysticks.  When Joe received the Best Reconditioned CX52 Joysticks, he was having some problems with one of the two Best reconditioned CX52 Joysticks he had received.  We explained to Joe that all Atari CX52 Joysticks Bests reconditions are tested on Atari Factory consoles that are calibrated to Atari 5200 Engineering Spec's using Atari 5200 Diagnostic hardware.   During the Best reconditioning process, each reconditioned Atari CX52 Joystick is tested on several different Atari 5200 Consoles using several different Atari 5200 Game Cartridges and then are put into our stock.  Just before the Reconditioned CX52 Joysticks are sent out, they again go into our Atari Tech's area to be again tested on Factory spec Atari 5200 consoles.  We explained to Joe, that we have found over the last 25+ years selling Atari CX52 Joysticks, that some of the Atari 5200 consoles have electronically drifted off the Atari 5200 Factory Joystick port settings, casing the one reconditioned CX52 Joystick problem Joe was having.  We explained that we can help Joe do the minor internal setting adjustment over the phone within his 5200 console to get his one Best CX52 Joystick problem corrected.  "Controllers are working great!  Kids and I are having a blast!  Thanks"

 

Bill D.  of NJ  "Just acknowledging receipt of this order"  Bill ordered an Atari Falcon 16MB Plug in Ram Upgrade and a New Falcon internal Clock Module.  "and say thanks for your super speedy delivery and excellent service!"

Adam P. of of WI  "I just wanted to say thanks for the quick email replies and the great service. I was very surprised when I received what I ordered from you 2 days after I ordered it.  The composite video mod works great!  It's a world of difference compared to the RF video/audio."  Adam ordered one of Bests 7800 Composite Video Upgrade Kits.  If I ever need anything else Atari related, you can be sure I'll come to you first. Thanks again!

Lawrence P. of Canada  "I'm very pleased with the Best XE touch upgrade.  The XEGS is my favorite 8-bit, and I love that it has a detachable keyboard.  The stock keys, are quite mushy and not fun for extended typing.  My XEGS is pretty heavily modded, but this was one heck of a dramatic upgrade.  I also thought it was a nice and smart touch to make the upgraded contacts red.  Nice that it is impossible to confuse them with the stock ones during the upgrade.  A subtle but nice touch"                

 

Matt C. of WA  "Thank you very much for getting back to me so fast, and for the info."  Matt had a question on his Best Reconditioned 7800 Console with the Composite Video and Euro OS upgrades he had received.  "You guys have great customer service, and are always helpful and nice when I call.

Chris M. of the UK  "Just a thank you note to let you know I got the flex circuits and games a few weeks back."  Chris got 2 New Atari Lynx II OEM Internal Flex Circuits (to repair some ailing Atari Lynx II consoles) and some New Atari Lynx games   "I was delighted with the service you've provided, and the printed material you included was very interesting - especially the replacement parts you've designed and had manufactured.  It's amazing what you've achieved supporting Atari products over the last 15 years, keep up the good work and I wish you every success in future."

 

James A. of CO   "The European chip mod I bought for the 7800 last time was a great project, by the way."  James upgraded his Atari US / NTSC 7800 with Best 7800 EURO Upgrade Kit.  This Best Upgrade kit replaces the stock Atari 7800 OS ROM with the upgraded Atari Engineering 7800 Euro version.  This 7800 Upgrade ROM removes the normal Atari 7800 delay Color Rainbow window and allows any 7800 game to instantly boot up / play.  It also installs a complete internal Atari 7800 Asteroids Game as the default game when no 2600 or 7800 game cartridge is installed in the 7800 console.

 

Gary G. of TX   "Just wanted to follow up with you on this.

Kevin O. of SC   "Thanks for getting that order out so promptly!  Got the XE-touch keyboard upgrade installed in my 130XE's keyboard already.... never thought rubber cups made THAT much of a difference in the feel of a keyboard!"  Bests new 65XE / 130XE / 800XE / XE Game Keyboard replacement Internal Silicon cups for a much improved XE Keyboard feel / tactical feed back.  "It went from "barely tolerable" to "damn, that's nice" in like 15 minutes!  If I ever get another XE, it's getting one of these kits too.  Too bad people can't feel the difference online.  I never realized how bad the stock XE keyboard was when I was a kid until I got another XE recently."

Bill D. of NJ  "I received your cable today."  One of Bests ST Multi Sync adapter cable to Multi Sync Tube and LCD Monitors, to replace the standard Atari made ST Monitors   "I'm very excited for a few reasons, but first I wanted to thank you very much for your speedy ordering and delivery process.  But I'm doubly excited, because when I connected this to my Coby LCD TV-TF1514 color TV with VGA inputs, it appears it can natively handle ALL the ST resolutions WITHOUT a converter box!  I just plugged the cable in, and figured I could at least test the monochrome part of it, since I know that is basically at the same scan rate as VGA, but to my surprise, I saw color in ST Medium mode, rather than monochrome ST High mode. I tested all three resolutions and they all work!"

 

Ed M. of the UK  "I received the new cable and mouse thanks - very happy with the product!"  A New replacement Atari MegaSTE Keyboard cable and New replacement ST Truemouse.

Scot S. of CO "Just a note to say I received my 7800 package and am extremely pleased! What fast shipping. Thanks again for the top notch customer service. You chose the right name when you went with "Best". My family would have a much different weekend if not for your high level of professionalism."

Follow up Comment "Seriously, every time I deal with Best, I wonder why I would bother with anyone else? You've got quality items of all varieties in excellent condition! Since my last 7800 death (an eBay acquisition years ago), I can't be bothered to try saving $10-20 for questionable quality and lousy service. I tell everyone I know who knows anything about Atari to keep Best Elec. in mind. Even if they don't play, a friend or relative might need something one day."

  

Christi P. of TN  "I am so impressed with your site, knowledge, service, & quality.  I received the joystick today & already tried it out on Pitfall & Donkey Kong.  It truly meets & exceeds the description on your product page for smoothness & ease of use.  I know you probably get tons of emails, but I wanted you to know I am greatly impressed, & will be back to shop soon."

 

Jose M. of NY  "Thank you so much for shipping my order so quickly and packaging everything very carefully and professionally.  I just had to take a moment to thank you for running such a professional, friendly, and extensive Atari store.  You make shopping an enjoyable experience."

Tim H. of TX  "As always you provide the fastest shipping and the best service of any Atari vendor, period."   

   

Noel M. of Canada   "Holy cow! That was ffffaaaaaaaaST delivery time!!!!!!!!  I seriously can not believe the amount of data in the Best Catalog.  It's like opening up an encyclopedia on extinct animals and seeing a guaranteed fresh in 5 minutes or its free restaurant steak menu -for each featured extinct animal -in both 8 and 16 ounce servings embedded within the knowledgebase!   Or like finding a whole new color never seen or experienced before. :)  Great job"  

  

Cathal B. of Ireland  "It's rare to find this level of service anywhere now! I must say that it's been a real pleasure dealing with Best, both in terms of Atari gear and your customer service. I love the fact that I can get reliable answers and hardware for my Atari systems (2600, Jag, Lynx and ST)"

     

Michael B. of FL  "Again, you've come through like charm. I appreciate your help, and even more so your patience. You've been outstanding in my ordering inquiries, and I want to thank you.  Take care, and I look forward to ordering again shortly".

Follow up Comment  "I meant every word of it.  This day & age, it's becoming rather difficult to find someone courteous...in any facility, so whenever I do, I consider it a treat.  This is why ordering has been a real pleasure.  Not only did you answer my questions without complaint, you took time on every one of them.  Again, that goes a long way with me. Thank you, and as for the comments .... you've earned it. Top class, all the way.  I appreciate your help".

   

Robert L. of TX  "I have been a customer of Best Electronics on and off over the years from my Atari 130XE about 20 years ago, to a replacement Mega STE case about 4 years ago.  I have always received great service and quality of products.  May Best Electronics continue for another 23 years!"

   

Greg T. of FL "I received my order today (two Atari 1064 600XL memory modules).  They are perfect!  Once again, your products and services are a godsend for Atari serious enthusiasts such as myself."

James E. of Canada  "Just wanted to let you know that I got my new Lynx and it's just AWESOME! Openning a sealed Lynx pack was just as exciting yesterday as it was 18 years ago - I feel like I'm back in 1989!! I was playing California Games last night Lynxed up with my son, and we had a blast.  Hey, you made me feel like a kid again - it really made my week! Thanks"

I expected some sort of yellowing or dings, but Best exceeded my expectations and the used bottom case is a perfect match! Now I have a mint condition TT030. Plus, my order arrived in two days. What a surprise! I recommend best for all of your Atari needs!"
