Dave Y. of NY. Dave contacted Best because he as trying to revive his 30+ year stored away Atari 800XL computer. It had developed XL Keyboard problems. He saw recommendations for Best on some Atari forums. Dave ordered one of Bests 2nd Gen. Upgraded / Enhanced XL keyboard replacement mylars. In 98% of the Atari XL cases over the years, this cures 30+ year old Atari XL Keyboard Failures. In Dave's very rare case it did not fix all of his XL Keyboard problems. Bests 39+ year Atari Super Tech, gave Dave some Atari tech tips on swapping the 2 800XL keyboard interface chips on the XL motherboard to see if the XL keyboard problems shifted. They did. Dave replaced the 2 chips and his Atari XL keyboard is now fully working again! "Thanks for the advice, Bradley. I really appreciate your patience and help. I will probably be purchasing more from your company as I work on getting my Rana 1000 hard drive working (if possible) and my venerable old Atari 400. You have an incredible inventory and I'll be checking your site regularly. Put me down as another satisfied customer. :-)"

Atari Trivia Information / Question: Do you know what the Atari acronym A.P.C.D. and A.H.C.D. stands for? It was used on a lot of Atari paper work and Atari box labels (identifying the Atari products inside the Master cartons of Atari products stacked on pallets) on boxes of Atari 8 bit products in the early to mid 1980 Atari era. They stand for Atari Home Computer Division (Green strip across the label) and Atari Personal Computer Division (Red strip across the label). Back then the Atari Consumer division had the APCD then it changed to AHCD, and VCS (2600) departments.

Robert M. of MI "It is amazing, that after 30 years these little 8 bit machines are still going strong and still have a pretty strong following. I have ordered parts and software from Best Electronics dating all the way back in to the 80's. I really hope you do not decide to suspend Atari sales, that would be a huge loss to the Atari Community. Every time I visit your site, I find something new, something I did not see before. I have often wondered what kind of treasures could be found in your warehouse."
Follow up Comment: Thank you for your continued support of the Atari after all these years.

Old Atari 8 Bit Owners will remember the early Kola Drawing Pad with the smaller drawing surface. The Atari CX77 Touch Tablet was Atari's Answer to the Kola Pad a couple of years latter with many New Improvements over the original Kola Drawing Pad. The only draw back with the Atari CX77 was when they were released 10 to 15 years ago, they were always in short supply in the US. Many Atari 8 bit uses never saw one or only saw pictures of them only. We found these Rare New Atari CX77 Touch Tablets in an Atari Warehouse in Holland. The labels on the Pallets of them, said they came from the Atari Warehouse in Italy!! Best Electronics spent the time and money and re-imported then back into our US Warehouse from Holland. The Atari CX77 Touch Tablet comes with Drawing pad surface Protective Mylar cover sheet (Spare Protective covers are available from Best), Stylus Pen, AtariArtisit Cartridge and 21 Page Owners Manuals.
Michael P. of CA "Just wanted to let you know that I un-boxed the CX77 Touch tablet today and tried it out, and I'm a very happy customer. It's probably the first time in 30+ years that I've had something brand new and sealed from Atari. Really brought me back in time in a good way. And the product works great!"
James R. of CA. Placing his 4th Atari order in a row in the last few months, this time James ordered a New in the box Atari CX77 Touch Tablet and the very hard to find New in the box last Generation made, Atari XC12 Program recorder. "Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I received my latest order today - the touch tablet and program recorder. As always, I’m thrilled and so appreciative to you guys for keeping the brand alive. Love to share the happiness you guys provide."
