Chris K. of the UK Chris ordered two of Bests best of the best CX40 Gold Joysticks ($49.95 each) with 4 different Best CX40 upgrades installed. "Just wanted to say thank you. My order arrived safe and sound. Excellent service. Well done"
Scott Z. of MI Scott contacted Best to place another Atari order. He said: "I recently have been going through my Atari systems, and got my 5200 going again, and of course the first thing I noticed was what bad shape the controllers were in. It was finally time to place an order with you. Of course I replaced everything, new gold dot keypad, new gold auxiliary keypad, new gold tactical fire buttons, and of course new gold flex circuits. After calibrating the pots inside the joystick, and on the console, I now have a perfectly working Atari 5200, with perfect-looking and working joysticks that are better than new! That joystick is almost a pleasure to use now! :-) So, I just wanted to say thanks. Without your parts, bringing some of these consoles and systems back to life simply would not be possible."
"I may be a small time collector and customer, but you helped me out BIG time. I look forward to dealing with you again in the future."
Follow up Comment: Received everything today, Thanks again!!
Peter H. of Canada Peter contacted Best because he was having problems with his Atari 130XE computer and could not tell where the problem was. A lot 130XE different symptoms information from Peter and one word from him (Buzzing sound) told Best were to start the Diagnostic check list. We told Peter it sounds like his 25+ year Atari XE power supply was going to fail. Best told Peter to stop using it right now. If it fails high (5VDC goes to 12+ volts) it could damage all of 5 volt chips on his 130XE motherboard), turning his old 130XE motherboard into burnt toast, not worth repairing. A couple of new E-Mails back and forth, Peter decided to buy a Best Reconditioned Atari 65XE computer with a new rebuildable Atari XE Power Supply, a second new Atari XE rebuildable Power Supply for his Atari 130XE Computer and a MPP direct connect Printer cable, Atari SIO connector to Centronics Printer interface connector (this cable takes the place of an Atari external 850 Interface and Centronics printer cable to like a DOT matrix printer of that era). Because of his International location, the shipping cost to ship Peter his Atari order to him was almost double the shipping cost, to send the same Atari order across the US. "Just a quick note to thank you again for all your help with placing my 1st order and getting it shipped out so fast! I received the order yesterday! Amazing! ( Monday was a holiday here, so no mail delivery ) I look forward to ordering more items from you in the future !"
John H. of WA. John ordered two Best Atari CX40 Joystick Gold rebuild kits (2, 4th Gen. Best designed CX40 Gold PCB boards and 2 Bests designed Atari CX40 Super handles) and 2 Best designed new 7 foot CX40 Upgraded Gold Joystick cables. "Wow what an improvement! I put the CX40 upgrades in last night and they are amazing! Thanks for keeping the Atari spirit going!"
Jeremey Z. of WI On his very 1st Atari order to Best, Jeremey ordered a Best CX40 Joystick Gold Rebuild kit (Rev. 4 Best Gold CX40 Lifetime internal PCB board and Best designed CX40 Super handle) and a new Best Designed / Upgraded Atari CX40 Joystick Silicon Joystick boot. A Best designed 2nd Gen. Upgraded / Enhanced XL replacement keyboard mylar to repair his ailing Atari XL computer Keyboard. The final Best upgraded Atari part Jeremey got from Best was a set of replacement CX30-S5 Super Pots to fix his old Atari CX30 Paddles that had cursors that were jumping all over the game screen during normal Atari Paddle game play. "I just wanted to send you a quick email saying holy cow, that was FAST. I didn't expect the package to show up until later this week, it was on my front step yesterday afternoon. The Joystick is 100% better, the new joystick handle feels even better with the new grip and stick, I'm thoroughly impressed. The keyboard mylar was also way easier to install than I thought, Lined it up with the keyboard and just screwed it in no problem. The paddle pots solved the problem with flying ALL over the screen and they're like new again. Thanks again for all your help and support! I'll definitely be coming back for more parts in the future!"
Harry M. of IL Harry ordered a set of Atari CX52 Joystick new internal silicon pads for his 2 non working Atari 5200 Joysticks. "I received and installed all the repair parts I recently purchased from Best Electronics for my Atari 5200 game console controllers today. Both CX52’s are now working just fine for the first time in many years. Thank you for your prompt service. You have earned another satisfied customer."
Alexandre S. of Brazil On an earlier Atari order to Best, Alexandre ordered the Best CX52 Gold Joystick parts to rebuild his 2 old non working stock carbon dot Atari 5200 Joysticks. He said the Gold CX52 Joysticks are working good now. This time, he said his 30+ year old Atari 5200 console was acting up and he required some 5200 motherboard replacement Atari Custom chips to get it up and running again. "The package arrived and my Pong and 5200 are operational again. I just wrote this message to send you a big THANKS! You rock! =) I hope you keep your business for decades on =D"

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!!
