Robert F. of NY.   Robert contacted Best via E-Mail.  He was trying to revive his old Atari 520ST (the very 1st 1/2 meg Atari 16 bit ST computer they ever made) keyboard that was not fully working.  Over several E-Mails back and forth,  Best give Robert some Atari ST trouble shooting tips to try on his ST Keyboard to get if fully working again.  In the end, we had exhausted Roberts trouble shooting ability.  So Robert ordered one of the just about impossible to find in the world, New 1987 Japan made Atari 520ST US Keyboard assembly from Best.   "The keyboard for my 1987 520ST arrived today and works perfectly!  Thank you very much for your assistance."

thousands and thousands of times over the years.  The temporally fixed stock 1200XL internal Keyboard mylars always 100 fails again.  The final fix is a new Best designed upgraded / enhanced 1200XL keyboard mylar.   "Just wanted to let you know that I received the mylar on Monday as it came in two days!  I just installed it and it works like a charm.  Basically took me 15 minutes"

Follow up Comment:  "Feel free to post." (His Best feed back comment) "Pleasure working with you!


Douglas B. of IL   "Douglas contacted Best saying "I just had issues with one of my original" Atari stock 7800 "power supplies this weekend."  He ordered 2 of the New Upgraded / Enhanced Auto Switching 7800 power supplies.  "Thanks for all the years you have supported and worked for the Atari community.  You are truly a treasure."

I also want to thank you for the gold PCB and super handle for my CX40 joystick. It feels better than new, and I spent a wonderful 30 minutes playing Missile Command as if I were 5 years old again. My wife picked it up after I upgraded it and immediately said "wow this feels so much better". I couldn't be happier with it. Thank you for the work you put into that :)"


Steven P. of ME    Steven purchased a used Atari 800XL computer.  When he received it, it worked but he discovered that somebody had tried to rework the 2 DB-9 Joystick connectors and messed up / damaged the PCB board around the Joystick connectors on the 800XL motherboard.  So he ordered one of Best's fully populated drop in replacement Atari 800XL US motherboards.  He also had a special request for Best.  He said the 800XL top case pop in clear snap in cover was damaged / cracked and he wanted to replace it.  We told Steven our 40+ Atari Super tech would try to find one for him.  "I received the 800xl parts yesterday and installed them last night.  The computer is now fully functional thanks to the new motherboard and looks great thanks to the new clear lens.   Thank you once again for providing these top-notch Atari parts and helping your customers to continue enjoying these timeless machines."


Rafael L. of MA.   Rafael ordered an Atari loose cart and boxed 8 bit games.  He also ordered Bests New 2nd Generation XE Touch Keyboard Internal Upgrade Silicone contacts.  That takes a stock Atari 65XE / 130XE and XEGS computer mushy / spongy feeling keyboard and turns into a high grade type laptop keyboard with tactical feed back on every key stroke.  "I wanted to thank you and Best Electronics for the prompt shipment.

Karl L. of the UK   Karl has placed several Atari orders to Best over the years.  On International Atari orders Best always gives a complete break down of costs or a rough estimate on what an Atari order will run / cost before the Atari order is placed.  The very nature of any International Atari order involves Very Very High International shipping costs (almost double the cost of a domestic Atari order shipping costs), plus incoming VAT (Value Added Tax) and incoming Customs fees.  So 1st time International Atari customers are sometimes shocked on these final Atari order costs.  This time Karl wanted to order 3 Atari items, two of them were very heavy.  So Best gave him a rough estimate on shipping cost for his next Atari International order.  "Those estimates for postage are in keeping with what I expected so Iím fine with that. The overall cost is similar or better to eBay items but I know ordering from you, the items are in great condition and well packed.  Let me know overall cost.  Just a short note to let you know the package arrived today.  Everything looks great thanks to the packaging, so I'm a happy Atari customer again with a few new toys to play with." 


Tom N. of WA   Tom has been an Atari customer for over 35+ years.  He was a member and past President of the SEATTLE / PUGET SOUND ATARI COMPUTER (SPACE) Atari users group.  During the 80 and 90's (hay day of Atari computers) Best meet Tom many many times at 8 to 10+ Atari shows put on by the Seattle / Puget Sound Atari users groups Best Electronics attended.  Tom recently retired as an Instructor of Bates Technical College of WA.  Both of his Adult sons and families are still hot and heavy into Atari computers passed on to them by Tom.  One of Toms sons contacted Best for some Atari hardware / replacement Atari Parts about a year ago.  It was how we got back in touch with Tom.  He has been going thru his rooms and garage full of Atari hardware.  Tom now was trying to revive some Old and New 1200XL computers in his Atari collection.  Tom purchased one of Best Upgraded / Enhanced Lifetime 1200XL replacement keyboard mylars  "I installed my first Atari 1200XL upgraded keyboard mylar recently in a NOS unit that had never been out of the box until now. Despite that, the keyboard was defective. I want to personally thank you for the work and thought you put into creating an excellent replacement mylar.  It works exceptionally well.  Thanks for your excellent service."  



Carl T. of CA  "Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for my recent order placed over the phone with you on Monday. I received the package the very next day (Tuesday) and everything is working perfectly. Whenever I need anything else for my Atari's your company is now at the top of my list as my first choice for parts."


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. :-)"


Donovan C. of AZ.  Upon on receiving an E-Mail from Best saying his latest placed Atari order had been shipped the same day to Donovan, he E-Mailed back and said....  "Thanks for everything. Youíve been my 1st stop for keeping old Atari gear alive since the early 2000s Ė 5200 Gold dot kits, XEGS keyboard membranesÖ everything I need to keep these things running. I love that your solutions arenít just replacements for worn out parts that will fail again in the same way, but offer improved features, engineering, and components that correct and enhance the durability and features of the OEM parts they replace".


Tom J. of AL  Tom is a new collector of old stock atari XE in box games!  Placing his very first Atari order with Best he said......  "Received my games yesterday!  Very appreciative on multiple counts:

Follow up Comment:  "As a postscript to my previous mail your installation instructions were outstanding.  Made the process of installing the keyboard a snap.  I liked the Atari Tech Tips as well."

"In addition the computer now recognizes every key press which was not the case before"  Old worn out / bad ST / Falcon keyboard Silicon dome contact conductive internal dot contacts.


Joel F. of MO   Joel visited the Best Atari Web site for the 1st time.  He spotted some Atari Collector items he wanted.  He also ordered Bests 228 page all Atari catalog.  "Thank you getting my order out so fast. I got it today and love my catalog and collectibles!  It is truly an honor owning the catalog.  I cannot think of anyone who has impacted Atari in such a huge way in the same time frame that you have.  I just listened to a podcast interviewing you"


Glenn M. of Australia    There has been a 2 1/2+ year dispute between the US Post Office and the Australian Post Office.  The US Post Office has removed all of the cost effective shipping methods to Australia from it web site shipping calculator.   Glenn read Bests New International Shipping information Tip for 1st time and current International Best World Wide Atari Customers.  Per that Best article, Glenn arranged to have his Atari order to a Florida Freight forwarder (they forwarded / shipped his order to Australia) that he opened up an account with.  "My order arrived yesterday and I just wanted to say a big thank you for your advice, care and diligence in getting the ordered nicely packaged and delivered to me here in Australia.

I will take great care of it.  The video cable is nice and I already have it powered on and connected to my TV at the Ready status.  Hooking it up to a newer TV like you said is better than trying to view on a small 10" or so Atari monitor"

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 also wanted to say, the lengths to which you have gone to create your upgraded replacement parts is astounding.  I really enjoy reading all your pages, about how these parts were developed -- the communication back and forth between you and the vendors...the detailed descriptions...the detailed photos...the money and time you have clearly invested...the unwillingness to settle for less than perfect.  I am blown away, and feel EXTREMELY fortunate that a guy like you is around for us collectors and restorers.  I know many may take you for granted, so I just wanted to send a HUGE "thank you" to you...for your replacement parts...for your time writing and creating your website...supporting the Atari community...everything.  Without your help, passion, and parts...this hobby would have died long ago for many folks."  "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."

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 CX52ís 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"  


James S. of the UK.  James ordered one of Bests Recondtioned / Upgraded CX52 Gold Lifetime Joysticks, non exchange version $85.00.  On top of that, the International shipping charge (not including the UK Customs and VAT tax fees James had to pay on top of it all) to the UK was about 3 times the highest single shipping cost to ship one across the US.  "Just a quick thank-you: I received the refurbed CX52 last week and am delighted with it."  James was the very 1st Atari 5200 owner in the world to receive a Best CX52 Gold Joystick upgraded with the just released Best Designed / Upgraded / Enhanced Rev. 10 Gold Flex circuit.


Ray T. of Canada   On his very 1st order to Best, Ray ordered Best's bench mark replacement ST mouse for the the last 24+ years, called the Truemouse.  "Thank you. Your shipment arrived today (May 20). Pleasure doing business with you. You excelled in every aspect of this transaction.  All the best"


Ken C. of CT.   Ken contacted Best and asked "I am looking for pots for my standalone Super Pong console (C-140)."  Ken did a little more research and said the Atari Super Pong console used 800K pots.  All though the Atari Super Pong old pots look just like the Best CX30-S5 Super Pots, the only difference was the 3 legs.  The Atari Super Pong console pots had 3 straight metal connecting legs and The Best Super Pots had three metal legs with metal loops (to put the CX30 wire harness pot wire on and solder them to) on the end of each straight metal leg.  The chances of Ken finding those exact style of New replacement pots 25+ years after they stopped making them, Very Very slim.  The Atari Super Pong Pots ohm rating were so close to the Best 1 Meg Ohm Super Pots and basically the same shape.  Best told Ken he should take a chance and purchase 2 of Best CX30-S5 Super lifetime Pots for his old failed Atari Super Pong pots.  "Hi, and thank you!  Those S-5 Super Pots were a perfect match for the Atari Super Pong console. The threaded part was exactly the length needed and the key on the shaft fit the original knobs perfectly."


Boris S. of NV  On his second recent Atari order to Best.  Boris picked up the Best Rev. 10 220+ page all Atari catalog.  "Just wanted to say thank you for servicing my recent order!  The Rev 10 catalog is outstanding! I think it's more like an Atari field guide than a catalog. I love the historical background and pictures of prototype hardware! The 1040ST+ was a new one to me.  I will reach out to you in a couple weeks for another order request, if that's ok with you. :)"

See his 1st feed back comment below.


Asan T. of the UK  Asan must of read a review on the Best exclusive TT Touch internal ST - Falcon keyboard upgrade Silicon cups.  He ordered 3 set of them.  "Just to let you know that these have arrived safely here and I've just fitted them.  Oh my goodness, these are absolutely amazing! They completely transform the feel of the keyboard and my only regret is that I didn't experience the benefit of these 30 years ago!  Thank you so much and best wishes"           


Ricardo M.  of TX   On his 1st Atari order to Best, Ricardo picked up one of the Atari CX78 JoyPads that has been upgraded with the Bests New CX78 Gold upgrade Kits.  It cures the known stock CX78 JoyPad problems that causes all of them to fail early.  Its also Enhances the CX78 JoyPad and Fire button features with new Tactical feed back functions.  On his second order to Best.....   "I really loved the CX78 controller and now I want another one... :-). Can you please confirm the total price with shipping for one "CX78 Joypad upgraded with Best's New 2019 Gold Enhancement Kit"


Boris S. of NV  Boris 1st contacted Best because he was having problems with his 25+ year old original / 1st Gen. Atari 520ST computer with a non Atari made external power supply.  He suspected the problem was with the non made Atari external power supply.  "Thanks for the excellent service! :) I received everything very, very quickly!  I tried the new power supply this weekend. Sadly, my 520ST did not come to life. :(  I'm thinking a component somewhere failed due to the AC power coming from my faulty power supply or my TOS is corrupted. Boo! I'll putter around with it some more in the coming days but I may be reaching out to you regarding another order soon."  On hearing this Best E-Mailed back some Atari ST Tech Tips and things to try on his Atari 520ST computer from our 39+ year Atari Super Tech.  "Great news! I followed your advice to remove and reseat the PLC chips. In fact, I went a little further and checked all socketed chips. My little 520ST booted to a beautiful green desktop! :) :) Your advice was very simple but very helpful and very, very effective. Thank you!!!  But wow ... it's huge! Haha!"


George E. of CA   "I'm glad I live in a world where you guys exist!  Atari parts are hard to come by otherwise."  


Alan W. of OH   On his second Atari order to Best, Alan picked up a New replacement Atari 800 computer motherboard for his 800 computer that was having SIO port problems.  "Just wanted to say thanks for the quick shipping and being a great resource to find old Atari parts!  Received the motherboard yesterday and now have a fully functioning Atari 800 working perfectly.  Thanks!"  On his 1st Atari order to Best Alan picked up a couple of Best designed Rev. 4 Gold Lifetime Atari CX40 PCB boards.  "And the 2600 joystick PCB boards are working awesome as well.  Excellent upgrade."         


Lindsay B. of NY  Lindsay sent 2 old non working CX52 Joysticks in for Bests CX52 Joystick exchange program.  "I sincerely cannot thank you enough!!!  You have given us so much to smile about:) The joysticks are amazing, and what a fast turnaround!  I honestly didnít think Iíd ever find a resource to get them going again...you do good and important things!!!!  My 7 year old and I played for two hours straight - I had to bribe her to put it down for the night (and practice some very real restraint myself haha).  Again, thank you so much!  All The Best"       


Murray M. of TX  Murray ordered 3 complete Best CX40 Joysticks upgraded with Bests Gold lifetime CX40 PCB board, Best designed new CX40 Super handles, new Bests CX40 lifetime Silicon boots and an extra Gold lifetime CX40 PCB board  "I just received my shipment yesterday and first off, I have no idea how you got this to me so fast. No other seller of anything in the past few months has been able to get anything to me, priority mail or otherwise, so quickly. Thanks for acting so quickly!  Now for the real feedback: Wow this rebuilt stick feels good. Really good. Unfortunately I've never played on a brand new CX40 so I don't have that as a frame of reference but I have played on a NOS Gemstik (just as squishy and sloppy as my dead CX40s) and a CX40 rebuilt with some PCBs from eBay that use some super tiny tactile switches instead of metal domes (very good at first but fell apart after about 2h play time)"  Best has seen these new black replacement CX40 PCB boards on E-Bay and they sell for more money than the Best designed 2005 Gold CX40 PCB boards.  The E-Bay seller claims the tiny micro switches are rated at 1 million cycles.   The Best over sized 4 leg Gold plated Dome contacts are rated at 5 Million cycles each.  "and this beats both hands-down. Everything about your CX40-GSHSB stick, from the feel of the boot (Bests new CX40 lifetime Silicone boot) to the responsiveness of the buttons and directions just screams quality.  At this point I'm just a little bit regretful that I didn't get the silicone boot and new wiring for the sticks I'm repairing but hopefully I'll be able to do another order in the near future for that. :) Thanks for making such great products!


Martin S. of Ireland.  Originally Martin contacted Best in August 2020 for some Atari Lynx II parts he wanted to rebuild his Lynx with.  At that time because of the World Wide COVID 19 virus, Best recommend to Martin to hold off placing an Atari order with Best.  At that time a lot of International Countries we have shipped to in the past, most of the Postal Systems had shut down or International Atari shipments were taking months and months to be delivered.  Compared to the normal International shipping times that averaged a could of weeks to a month.  On January 19, 2021 Martin placed his Atari Lynx II parts order.  "Thanks SO MUCH for sticking with me through all my questions and queries.  You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and you're an example of how online stores should be run.  Stay safe, and thanks again."


Griffith E. of NY  Griffith ordered Bests 2nd Generation Atari ST Multi Sync adapter cable.  It allows Atari ST owners to get away from the stock Atari made custom (Only works with ST / STE / Mega / MegaSTe computers only) ST Color and ST (12 - 13 inch diagonal displays) Monochrome monitors.  It allows Atari ST owners to use larger diagonal display Multi Sync Tube monitors and much larger and up to State of the Art Flat Panel TV's with a VGA in port.  Some Multi Sync tube monitors and most Flat Panel TV's require an additional Sync box to get the Low and Medium ST Color displays.  "I just got the ST VGA cable, thank you so much for the fast shipping and the excellent cable, I cannot stress how much of an improvement it is over my last generic cable, 110% better!  Thank you!!!!"


Doug A. of NC  Doug ordered one of Bests new 2nd Generation Upgraded / Enhanced Atari 600XL / 800XL internal keyboard replacement mylars with complete installation instructions.  "I installed the Mylar without problems.  Now I have a fully functioning 800XL.  Everything went flawlessly, and it worked first time, so thanks for an excellent product!  Iím sure you will be hearing from me soon with requests for more parts :-)"


Anders G. of Sweden   Anders ordered some new Atari TT Custom replacement chips and the Best Exclusive TT Touch internal keyboard  Silicon replacement upgrade / enhancement contacts for Atari ST / STE / Falcon computers.  "I just wanted to write and thank you for the TT-Touch keyboard upgrade! It made a huge improvement over the stock 520STM keyboard and Iím very happy with it."   


 Darius V. of IL    Darius has placed several Atari orders in a row with Best.  His very 1st Atari order, he ordered 1 Best Lifetime Gold Upgraded / Enhanced CX40 Joystick with all of the options (best of the best), a set of Best upgraded Atari CX30-S5 (5 Lifetimes worth of normal use) set of Paddles.  His latest Atari order he ordered a second Best Upgraded / Enhanced CX40 Gold Joystick and 2 of Best Reconditioned / Upgraded Gold Lifetime CX24 Joysticks.  When Atari 1st released this new second generation (CX10 / CX40 was the 1st ones) Atari CX24 Joystick, it quickly got a bad reputation with Atari users.  It seemed to almost fail right of the Atari new box or with any normal use they would fail faster than the early generation 1980's made Atari CX10 and C40 Atari Joysticks.  So most very old Atari users avoid them like the plague.  Best Electronics has always known the Atari CX24 Slim Line / Pro Joysticks were a better designed 2nd Gen. Atari Joystick, but had internal PCB problems that caused all of them to fail early.  Atari was so busy back then with the Very Very fast growing Video Game Industry, they simply did not have free Engineering time to try to fix the Atari CX24 Joystick internal problems.  So like Best has done with other Atari made controllers (Gold CX40 Joystick, CX30 Paddles and Gold CX52 Joysticks) that have always seemed to fail early, designed a new set of Best Upgraded / Enhanced Gold Lifetime CX24 internal PCB board set, that turns the orphaned Atari CX24 Joysticks into another Best Lifetime Gold Atari controller with excellent feed back Click / Tactical feel on all of the Joystick handle functions and duel fire buttons.  "I have received my order, and the CX24-REG joysticks work great, thank you! I didnít think I was a fan of the CX24, it turns out I am a fan of the CX24-REG. Who knew?"


Garry R. of FL  Garry took advantage of Bests CX52 Joystick exchange program and sent in 2 old carbon dot non working Atari CX52 Joysticks for Best Recondtioned / Upgraded Gold Lifetime CX52 Joysticks.  "Thank you for the incredibly great service. 5 days from start to finish.  I bought this 2 port 5200 37 years ago, 3 years later because of necessity switched to Wico command controllers which still somewhat work for certain games. I had many more that were not workable, so to be able to play these games after all these years the way thy were intended  (don't laugh) is emotional and brings back wonderful memories of a better time.  and I am so happy you could help bring me there.  Also I see Ballblazer and Rescue on Fractalus in my near future. Thank You for bringing these opportunities to me. You are an ATARI HERO."


Bob S. of IL   "I've had my 5200 for about 37 years and for just about all of that, its been unusable.  After years of searching, and searching and more searching, to have finally found your Gold replacement parts; what a joy!  In September I purchased two of the Atari 5200 Gold replacement parts kits.  It's been a month but I finally got around to the rebuild.  Your explicit, step by step instructions were easy to locate on your website.  As for the rebuild, it was easy, straight forward and most of all fun.  All 2 joysticks work flawlessly.  The 5200 games I have (over 20) all bring back memories.  My son who just turned 31 is enjoying this experience for the first time.  In short, it's really nice to pull the 5200 out after decades of non-use. The sense of accomplishment that my perseverance of the pursuit of 5200 parts has brought me.  I am an Electrical Engineer and retired 2 years ago. With the weather getting colder (Chicago) and most of the 'Covid 19' outdoor chores done,  I was this close to designing my own joysticks. But now I don't need too.  Thank you for giving me the tools (parts) to brighten up what has been a stay at home."


Steven  R. of NC.  Steven ordered Best's Lynx II internal Upgrade speaker and two New loose Atari Lynx game carts.  "I received my order today. Two games and a speaker for my Lynx II. The games are perfect, and the speaker looks perfect.  Thank you so much for the easy ordering process, the quick shipping, and the great products. And thanks also for the stack of articles you included in the box. It will be fun to read those."


Christopher D. of Canada   Christopher purchased a Best Recondtioned Atari Lynx II combo package.  He also opted to have the Best Lynx II upgrade speaker installed on the Atari Lynx II console.  This is Christopher's second feed back comment to Best, see below.   "I just wanted to confirm that my Atari Lynx II combo pack arrived today, and the console is in fantastic condition. I appreciate the  additional literature on Best Electronics as well. I'll definitely be back for more soon."

Follow up Comment:  "I've just purchased an Atari Jaguar from my local game store, so I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again soon!"


Rod L. of Canada  Rod was rebuilding his Atari 8 bit computer collection.  He ordered a New Atari 65XE Computer with Bests new 2nd Generation / Upgraded Atari Composite Video cable two months ago.  He contacted Best this time because he wanted to order a 1050 Disk drive to go with his new Atari 65XE.  "Thank you for sending the new 65XE and new 2nd generation composite video cable - what a treat it was to unpack and use, it felt like Christmas arrived early!  Thanks, too, for your unbelievably great support to me and thousands of other Atari aficionados over the years."


Christopher D. of Canada.  Christopher placed an Atari order for Bests New Upgraded / Enhanced Auto Switching 7800 Power supply, a New set of Atari 7800 OEM bottom case rubber feet and a couple of New boxed Atari 7800 games.  "I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know that my order arrived today in great shape.  I am particularly impressed by the improved Atari 7800 power supply!  It truly feels like such a substantial upgrade in quality over the stock power supply!  I feel much better about the durability of this power supply than I have ever felt about the stock unit. Thanks so much for your help. I'll definitely be back for more products in the future!"               


Jack B. of CA.   Jack sent in two old carbon dot non working Atari CX52 Joysticks for Bests Reconditioned / Upgraded CX52 Gold Lifetime Joystick exchange program.  He received them and was happy with them.  But Jack noticed that one of the Best CX52 Gold Joysticks would not go far right on the 5200 Centipede game.  We told Jack that Atari CX52 Joystick symptom was covered in the 1/2 sheet of Best CX52 Joystick information / Trouble shooting information we include with each CX52 Joystick we send out.  All Best Reconditioned / Upgraded CX52 Gold Joysticks are tested twice (once during reconditioning and just before they are sent out).  They are tested on an Atari 5200 motherboard that has pasted all of the Atari 5200 Factory Diagnostic tests and it up to Atari 5200 Engineering motherboard specifications.  What has happened, is Jacks Atari 5200 30+ year old motherboard has drifted off the original Atari Factory electronic port setting.  Atari 5200 Engineering knew this could be a possible problem in the future, so they designed a way this could be corrected.  10 to 15 minutes on the phone with Jack, Best walked him thru the minor 5200 motherboard port adjustment / calibration.  "First let me say that my newly calibrated, gold CX52s work perfectly.  I am enjoying my 5200 every day, and am so happy with my purchase.  I honestly can't believe how well they work, and I'd like to do some more business with you."


Steve K. of Canada   Steve wanted to rebuild his Atari Lynx II console.  He ordered a New Atari OEM Lynx II Flex circuit and new mating silicon pad set and a few new Lynx lose games.  "Just to let you know, the package arrived safely toward the end of last week. I've installed the new flex circuit and pads and everything is working well. I'm amazed that it's still possible to buy brand-new, OEM Atari parts in 2020. It feels like a miracle. Thanks for helping keep this hobby alive."


Wesley R. of KY  Wesley ordered one of Bests very very rare New in the box, 1st Generation Japan made Atari Lynx I combo (includes New Lynx I with US Power supply, California game, Comlink cable and 4 other new Atari Lynx games with normal Atari 90 day Warranty) packages.  "I received the package today. All I can say is, WOW! I am in love with my new Lynx! I will definitely be buying some more items from Best Electronics soon."

Follow up Comment:  "I will be reaching out to you again here soon to order some Atari ST and Lynx items. Pleasure doing business with Best Electronics."


Ian S. of TX.  Ian had purchased an Atari 5200 2 port console, but when it arrived it was having some video issues which he was not to happy with.  A couple of Best 5200 trouble shooting tips to Ian and several E-Mails later, Bests suggestion was to get a new drop in Atari 5200 2 port US motherboard.  "Thank you so much! The 5200 motherboard works perfectly!"


Steve H. of NH   Steve said he had left of couple of voice mails to Best, but never heard back from us.  Then he tried an E-Mail to Best.  In our same day E-Mail reply back, we explained to Steve we are so busy here (7 days a week, 14 to 16 hour days here) that we get to our Atari voice Mails around 12 midnight to 2 AM typically.  It has not changed for last 20+ years.  Steve said he just got an Atari 130XE but it had keyboard problems.   He said he wanted to order the Best better made XE Keyboard CB101049 replacement mylar.  One of the two Atari made stock XE Keyboard mylars has a close to a 99% failure rate.  The Best made upgraded XE Keyboard mylar has a 1/4 of 1% failure rate for the last 28+ years of sell them all over the world.  "130XE keyboard mylar arrived today.  Itís in and working!  Good price, great service, thanks for being there!"


Gary G. of OH   Gary sent in 3 old Atari carbon dot CX52 Joysticks for Best CX52 Gold Joysticks on Best CX52 exchange program.   When he received them he said "I received my sticks back. New buttons are great but I'm having a similar problem with each stick."  We explained to Gary 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.  Just before the Reconditioned CX52 Joysticks are sent out, they again go into our 39+ Atari Super Tech's area to be again tested on Factory spec Atari 5200 consoles.  We explained to Gary, that we have found over the last 39+ years selling Atari CX52 Joysticks, that some of the Atari 5200 30+ year old consoles have electronically drifted off the Atari 5200 Factory Joystick port settings, casing the CX52 Joystick problems Gary was seeing.  Atari 5200 design Engineers put in device to correct this port problem on all 5200 motherboards made.   We explained that we can help Gary do the minor internal setting adjustment over the phone within his 5200 console to get his Best CX52 Joystick problems corrected.  A couple of E-Mails back and forth, Best told Gary how to prep his 5200 console, the 5200 game cartridge required and the tools required before he called Best.  We arranged for Gary to call Best around Friday afternoon here, where is slows down just a little (Ha ha) here.  About 10 to 15 minutes on the phone with Gary:  "All 3 sticks work great after calibration. Thanks."

Follow up Comment:  "Sticks work great and over-the-phone console calibration was easy!  I look forward to doing more business with you later!"


 John F. of NY    John ordered 1 of Bests new CX40 Joysticks upgraded with the Best designed CX40 Gold lifetime inner PCB board, Best designed new CX40 lifetime Silicon Joystick boot and Best designed / Upgraded CX40 inner Super Handle.  "Today, I opened your package and handed Jess our newly purchased Upgraded CX-40 Gold.  All she said was, ď...now thatís what Iím talkiní about...Ē  So, itís nothing but high scores for her and  Iíve finally saved the princess from Donkey Kong - and I totally suck.    The firm, smooth stick response and a fire button that ďclicksĒ coupled with the soft grip - makes youíre upgraded CX-40 work the ďGold StandardĒ of joysticks in this house."


Michael O. of CA   Michael sent in an old non working CX52 carbon dot Joystick for Bests CX52 upgraded Gold exchange program.  "I love the action of this 5200 controller you had rebuilt for me its awesome."

Follow up Comment:  "the joystick has a feel that takes you by surprise.  It makes the 5200 very enjoyable now."


Mark S. of FL   Mark took advantage of Bests Atari CX52 Joystick exchange / Gold upgrade program.  He sent in a non working Atari CX52 Carbon dot Joystick.  "I love my rebuilt Gold Contact 5200 Joystick!  It has transformed my Super System from practically unplayable to one of my favorite consoles of all time!" 


Chace C. of CA  Chace ordered 2 of the Best Reconditioned / Upgraded Atari CX24 Gold Joysticks, upgraded with the Best designed new CX24 Gold lifetime board sets (Gold X/Y Main board and 2 Gold fire button PCB with extra large Gold dome contacts, all 3 PCB boards have tactical sounds and feed back on the Gold dome contacts).  The stock Atari made CX24 Joysticks have the bad reputation over the years of almost failing right of the new box.  "The joysticks arrived safe and sound in excellent condition.  They work great and feel much more responsive than the stock sticks.  Thank you once again and I look forward to my next purchase with you."          


Eric S. of Germany   Eric was having a problem (black screen) with his Atari PAL 2600 console.  He contacted Best via E-Mail.  A couple of E-Mails back forth, Best recommended Eric get a new set of Atari 2600 plug in PAL chips.  "I just received the 3 chips I ordered from you in March.  I already put them in my 2600 and what can I say?! It works!!!  Thank you very much, for your help and customer service.  If I need anything else for my Atari I will order from you.  Big thanks again, I hope you are doing fine in those crazy times."      


John D. of CA  John ordered 2 new Best CX40 Joysticks upgraded with the Best designed CX40 Gold lifetime inner PCB board, Best designed new CX40 lifetime Silicon Joystick boot, Best designed / Upgraded CX40 inner Super Handle, and just released Best designed Upgraded / Enhanced CX40 Gold 7 ft (stock CX40 cable is only 4 ft) Joystick cable.  Basically the Best of the Best upgraded CX40 Joystick Bests sells.  "Thank you for the Joysticks!!!!  They rock!  Even my 17 year old had fun!!!"


Scott S. of UT.  Scott took advantage of Bests Atari 5200 CX52 Joystick exchange program.  He sent in two old non working Atari Carbon dot CX52 Joystick cores and received back two Reconditioned / Upgraded Best CX52 Gold Lifetime Joysticks.  "I wanted to let you know that I received my better then new Atari 5200 controllers today and they work great! Now I can really play my 5200 games they way they were meant to be played. Thank you for your great customer service and for the fantastic work you did in making my controllers better then new!" 


Jimmy F. of TX.  "I just wanted to thank you for the quick response filling my first order with you.  I received the package today and I am very happy with the performance of the paddle controllers with your super ports installed.  My originals never worked that well even when they were new back in the eighties.  I will be back for more once I find the rest of my 8bit computers and peripherals and am able to test everything."


Steve M. of NC.  Steve contacted Best via E-Mail.  He ordered one of Bests 5200 CX53 Trackball internal rebuild parts Kits, a couple of Bests exclusive CX30 S-5 (5 lifetimes worth of use) Paddle replacement Super Pots, 2 of Bests Upgraded (with Bests lifetime CX40 Gold internal PCB boards with tactical feed back (click) Gold plated dome contacts, Best designed and just released Atari CX40 Upgraded Super handles and Bests new CX40 lifetime Silicon boots) CX40 Joysticks.  He paid via PayPal.  "I received my shipment yesterday. I couldnít be happier with the 2600 joysticks. Before I even turned the console on; the tactility alone is incredibly satisfying. I had spent a lot of time playing particular games but lately I had resigned to the notion that I just suck at Atari 2600 now. The first game I threw in to give the new sticks a test run (River Raid), I got further than I had in years. Iíve tried the cheesy joystick remakes off of Amazon and they arenít even in the same league as your product or any better than my 30+ year old originals for that matter.  Track ball optocouplers, bearings and chipset, went in easy enough (I have a good soldering set). Itís so much more precise now. First game of Missile Command after over a year and I was in 6x points.  I donít have much to say about the paddle pots because I donít particularly enjoy the paddle games. Easy installation and they work great though. I might get a couple more for the sake of four player Warlords.  Thank you for the very fast shipping and for helping the community keep a small piece of our childhoods alive!"


Jeffrey J. of NC.  Jeffrey is a developer of Atari Jaguar Homebrew games.  He contacted Best because he was looking for Jaguar game Cartridge shells and internal Jaguar game cartridge PCB boards.  A month before Jeffery purchased one of the Atari CX78 JoyPads that have been upgraded with the Best designed CX78 Gold Upgrade / Enhancement kits, that cure the known stock CX78 JoyPad problems that cause all of them to always fail early.  "I ordered the 7800 gamepad from you guys at Christmas time and I just wanted to let you know it is AWESOME"

Aaron C. of AR  Aaron did not have an old Atari CX52 Joystick to do Bests CX52 Joystick exchange program, so he went with an outright buy of a Reconditioned / Upgraded CX52 Gold lifetime Joystick.  "I received the controller today, plugged it in, fired up my and was VERY happy with the performance.  The old joysticks I've had never worked as well as the one I ordered from you.  I didn't realize how much of the games I was missing without a fully operational controller.  The tips on extending that controller life are very helpful and the additional reading material is nice as well.  I'll be looking it over today.  I was amazed at how fast it shipped!  Only two days to get from California to Arkansas.  I really thank you for all your help and amazing customer service.  I will definitely recommend Best Electronics to other Atari fans/owner and will be ordering from you again."

I threw the new parts in my stick and it's so crisp. A 7800 stick in good working order is surprisingly good. Thank you for engineering and carrying replacement parts for such a niche product and the rapid product delivery!  Mark me down as very satisfied, when I have the budget I'll be ordering 2600 stick parts for sure!" 


Brain G. of WA.  Brain was about ready to place another Atari order with Best and he said:  "I recently purchased an improved set of paddle controllers" (Bests Atari CX30-S5 Paddles upgraded Best 2nd gen.

Garry T. of OH.  "The Best catalog is a treasure-trove of tips and hints for repairing/trouble shooting your Atari.  The tip about how to fix your ST keyboard if the mouse wasn't working correctly was terrific.  I was able to fix the keyboard very easily without having to replace the keyboard or getting a new mouse.  The Best catalog should be every Atari owners' best friend!  Super resource.  Thanks again for everything"

Follow up Comment: "After years of mushy typing on my 1040ST, I discovered the Best TT Touch keyboard silicon replacements.  I was a bit nervous about opening up my ST as I am not technical, but the instructions were super clear and the whole replacement process only took about 10-15 minutes and only required a screwdriver.  Now I have a super responsive keyboard, it's like having a new ST again!  Thanks Best!"


Michael W. of CA  Michael contacted Best via E-Mail, because his old Atari 810 disk drive would read and load some Atari disk based games, but refused to properly format Atari floppy disks.  He was think of getting a New Atari 810 sideboard with data separator and a C version (last 810 revision ROM made) 810 upgrade ROM to fix his 810 format problem.  Several 810 diagnostic E-Mails questions back and forth, pictures sent and received.  Best told Michael his Atari 810 already had a  810 sideboard with the 810 data data separator and in most cases that was not his 810 format problem.  We recommend he should get a new upgrade Atari 810 Grass Valley Rear power board and top head card, to replace the old 810 single rear power board with known 810 Speed problems.  "Just wanted to say "thank you!" - the Grass Valley board got my 810 working again - what would I do without your great support and stock / supplies of retro parts!  Thanks again"

Even got full audio! All problems solved!!  Thank you so incredibly much for the hugely substantial amount of assistance and components!!"   


Paul J. of Canada  Paul contacted Best via E-Mail.  Several E-Mails back and forth, Atari questions asked and answered.  Paul placed his very 1st Atari order with Best.  "Thanks -  We received the shipment yesterday!  The new drive belt is installed and my 1050 drive works like it was 1985 again.  I am sure it will run for another 35 years!  The new 130xe main board also works perfect.  I can honestly say Best rescued both items from the landfill.  Thanks for helping persevere a little bit of Atari computing history in our home!  I can say with 100% assurance that we will be back for additional purchases.  Best is the best!  Thanks Again!"

I received my CX-24 controller today and I have to confess I never liked playing my 7800 because the controllers I had were so bad. (I never knew any better)  Today I found out how good it should be, this controller is amazing. Can not say enough positive things about Best products and service.  My 5200 Best controller still rocks having had it since 03/2016."


Colton M. of Canada   Colton contacted Best looking for a pair of Atari CX30 Paddles.  We told Colton we had Atari CX30 Paddles upgraded with Bests New 2nd Generation (five lifetimes worth of normal use) S-5 Atari Paddle Super Pots.  "I have now received the order, and I must say I am very impressed.  The paddles are of a ridiculously high quality - it has been a real pain for me to find decently reliable paddles lately, and now I think my search is over!  Keep up the good work, if any of my buddies are looking to get into the retro-gaming scene, I know where to send them!  Thanks again!"


Paul T. of Australia  Paul contacted Best looking for some new replacement parts for an Atari 2600 he was rebuilding.  He ordered 4 new Atari 2600 slide switches, a 2600 R/A Power jack and 2600 7805 voltage regulator.  "You are a legend.

Mike M. of NC  Mike's 1st contact (via E-Mail) with Best, he said he had just picked an Atari 5200 console and of course it had two bad carbon dot CX52 Joysticks.  He asked Bests advice on the new CX52 Joystick parts he should get.  Mike was considering mixing some working to a degree old Carbon dot parts with Best's CX52 Gold Lifetime Joystick parts.  Best told Mike if he was on a budget, go with a full set of new Atari Carbon dot CX52 Joystick parts (good for about 3 to 4 years of normal use, before they will have to be rebuilt again).  If he wanted to end up with Lifetime CX52 Joysticks, go with all Gold CX52 parts.  Upon placing a second Atari order in a row with Best, Mike said: "Hi, picked up a 7800 this week.  Also wanted to say how awesome the gold parts were to fix those old joysticks on the 5200. Night and day and worth the extra cash. Nice to know that they wonít fail.

I was impressed by the condition of the Lynx2.  It's like a new one.  I really love the sound of upgraded Lynx2 speaker. The catalog is amazing. I'm a very happy customer."   We have told by Atari users in Japan, because of the very very high Japanese incoming Customs and other fees, a typical Atari shipment to Japan can almost double in cost to the Atari user.

David P. of FL  "I want to sincerely thank you guys for the two CX52 Atari 5200 controllers with the Gold dot revisions that I purchased from you around 2006.  When I received them they were great, and outperformed my original controllers even when they were brand new.  Around 2010, the Atari went into storage, kids were into their own systems and it wasnít getting any fair play.  Now, my ďkidsĒ are young adults and they were feeling nostalgic and asked about the Atari, so I pulled it out of storage, hooked it up and the controllers worked flawlessly as soon as they were plugged in!  I feel this is a testament to the quality craftsmanship that Best Electronics put into both the design of the upgrade parts as well as the workmanship invested in the controller rebuild process.  Many thanks!!!"  30+ year Atari 5200 History has shown, if David went with the Carbon dot version freshly rebuilt CX52 Joysticks back in 2006, they would of gone bad after 4 to 5 years of storage.

I regret waiting so long before acquiring one. It was an effortless installation thanks in part to the included printed, very detailed instructions and accompanying photos.  Those are what made it ďfool-proofĒ for me. Great job!  Bravo!!!"

The wiring color labels made the upgrade very easy.  The result is beyond what I expected. My CX40 joystick is better than new and very precise. The tactical feedback is great and the click sound so pleasing ! Thanks !"

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!

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!"

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."

Bill L. of  NJ.  Bill had two 8 bit computer products that either one would end the Atari SIO daisy chain.  He wanted to run both products at the same time on his 8 bit Atari computer.  So he ordered the assembled version of the ApeLink 13 Pin SIO splitter / breakout product  "Thank you once again for the quick delivery of the APE-LINK device.  It works perfectly!  I can now hook up my Alien Group Voice Box I as well as my SIO2PC cable, both of which terminate SIO.  Iíll be using it to archive the rare disk images that came with the Alien Group Voice Box I for the ATARI community.  Iíll also be using it at Vintage Computer Festival East 2017 and Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 2017 for my ATARI exhibit."

Rick of Canada  Rick contacted Best via E-Mail.  He was having some problems with his Atari 2600 six switch light console and wanted to order some New replacement Atari 2600 parts from Best.  We told Rick to try some Best Atari 2600 trouble shooting tips before he placed an Atari order with us.  "In the future I wouldnít be afraid to order parts from you ... 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. I'll be honest in saying that I wasn't expecting all that much at first (I'm always one to err on the side of caution when ordering from someplace new), but now I'll definitely be coming back to order again from you soon. Thanks a ton."

Sean R. of WA  On upon placing his second back to back Atari Lynx order with Best.  "Thank you again.  I'm loving this upgraded Lynx II speaker... it's so loud"

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. Thanks again."


Sam C. of TX  By Sam's very very low Best Customer number, we can tell he has been a Best Atari Customer for over 20 to 25+ years now!  Sam ordered one of Best's reconditioned Lynx II console and had Best install the Best Lynx II upgrade speaker.  "Just a short note to thank you for the terrific repeat experience I had with BestE.  I inquired about an item on Wed, got your quote and then paid on Thurs. and, BOOM, got my purchase on Sat.  Magnificent!  Many, many thanks of appreciation."


Nathan B. of Australia  Nathan was repairing his Atari XEGS console.  He ordered a new replacement Atari XE Keyboard and the Best's XE Touch XE keyboard Internal Upgrade contacts.  Best made sure that the XE version Keyboard (2 different version available) we sent Nathan was the one that could be upgraded with XE Touch upgrade contacts.  "Thanks so much for the brand new XE keyboard and the XE touch rubbers. They arrived some time last week and after fixing up the keyboard my XEGS now feels like a brand new machine. It will be something to show off at the next retro computer meet up.  The Atari community is really lucky to have someone as dedicated as you are to the brand. Congrats for being around for as long as you have been!"

Right after he received his Best order, he ordered two more of the CX40 Gold Lifetime PCBs.  "I received my CX40 gold PCBs and these are extremely good.  I feel like I donít have to treat the joystick with overly great care, especially playing games like Decathlon and Track&Field.  I would highly recommend that everyone upgrade at least one of their joysticks to the gold PCBs.  I installed one and will install the other one asap. Excellent product!"

The package arrived super quick, and the games I ordered I was just expecting to be carts.  Not only were they actually complete in box, but still factory sealed!  That's amazing!  I ordered them because they're carts I wanted to actually play, but I don't know if I want to open them now haha!  Thank you so much again for the excellent service and quality of your products.  Consider yourself my go-to guy for Atari parts and games from now on."

Todd sent Best a picture of the one he needed) on his 800XL keyboard vs buying a new replacement Atari 800XL Keyboard.  After several hours work on the switch, the problem was not getting any better, but worse.  "I just wanted to drop a line to confirm order receipt and say a big thank you.  Now I should be able to get my main 800XL computer back to 100%, and a lot sooner than I would have ever expected.  Those of us still interested in Atari hardware have a great resource in Best Electronics!"

Roy L. of CA   A few months ago, Roy picked up from Best one of the rare Atari 400 Factory 48K Ram upgrades and successfully installed in his Atari 400 computer (that was connected up to his TV via an Atari RF cable and TV switch box).  Then he was considering getting an reconditioned Atari 130XE from Best.  A few E-Mails back and forth, Roy put in an order for a Best reconditioned Atari 130XE computers.  At the same time Best suggested to Roy, that he dump the Atari RF cable and old style TV switch box (that comes with the 130XE) and go with Best Enhanced Atari Composite Video cable for a better / clearer 130XE display.  "Iím loving the 130XE (although my 400 is lonely now).  I could have bought it for less than 1/2 the price on Amazon or EBay but I wouldnít have had confidence in the condition, the seller or the machineís history.  You guys did the self-tests, put in a new upgradeable keyboard and even added the video cable that I didnít even think about so I had confidence that I was buying the best 30-year old machine I could."


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? Anyone who has any interest in 2600 gaming would be thrilled to know these are available!  Your CX40 Joystick upgraded with best lifetime gold PCB board are nothing short of spectacular !!!  You've reinvigorated my gaming experience!  My advise to anyone contemplating buying something from eBay...

Many thanks."


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. Thanks again"

You guys are absolutely the BEST!"


Chris C. of PA  Chris contacted Best Electronics wanting to purchase a reconditioned Atari 2600Jr console.  We explained to Chris there is a unadvertised option on the Reconditioned Atari 2600Jr consoles.  He could trade in the two non Atari made BP Joysticks for a credit toward any Atari made controller we have in stock.

Matt P. of PA  Matt contacted Best Electronics about a half month ago, looking for one of our reconditioned

Atari 1040STE computers.  We explained to Matt, that we did not have on the shelf ready to ship out. Our 39+ year Atari Super Tech was swapped with more Atari work than he can do 7 days a week here for the last year+ (one of the reasons why we did not have any on the shelf ready to ship out).  We told Matt it would be at least a half month before we could ship him one.  He put one on order. "Brad, arrived from you today one Atari STE. Wonderful!  It is in perfect condition. It's as if I went back in time to buy it. Remarkable. Thank you so much."

Follow up Comment: "Best Electronics are apparently capable of miracles. The Atari STE I bought looked brand new and works like a dream. They also have some amazing items of stock most ST fans wouldn't have dreamed they could acquire 25 years ago - the diagnostic cart, a VGA adapter, the STacy. Highly recommended!"

We told Rick, before he considered getting one of Best upgraded Atari New XE Keyboard replacement internal Mylars, try these Best Atari Tech tips on his old XE Keyboard 1st.  "Your first suggestion of simply unplugging the keyboard mylar and plugging it back in worked!  All keys work fine now.  Thank you very much for the suggestion and not selling me something I didn't need!"

Jeff K. of PA  Jeff picked a set of Bests New all Gold 5200 Atari CX52 Joystick upgrade parts that turns an old Atari CX52 Joystick that had its problems ever since they were 1st made some 25 to 30+ years ago, into a Lifetime CX52 Gold Joystick.  "I just wanted to thank you so much for the new gold updates for my 5200 controllers.  I have never enjoyed Gremlins and Gyruss as much as I am now!  Thank you!!"

Follow up Comment:  "I still cant believe how incredible my joysticks are running right now.  The responsiveness is amazing!  I am fairly certain that if the OEM ones ran like these do, the console would have been much more successful. 

I am just so thankful that a company like yours exists, to ensure that future generations get to experience the magic that is Atari!  Never stop doing what you do best!"


 Phil L. of the UK  Phil contacted Best via E-Mail because his old UK Atari 2600 console was cutting out after turning it on for a seconds.  Many E-Mails back and forth, 2600 display video clip received, many Atari 2600 diagnostic tech questions asked and answered, Bests 39+ year Atari Super Tech told Phil to go out and get a new 2600 power supply in the UK (no Atari sale for Best).  "You guys are legends!!!!  Got new power supply today and all is good!!  Please can you send me you PayPal account details so I can donate some money for your time?"  Best told Phil a PayPal payment was not necessary for our free Atari 2600 trouble shooting help for him.


John D. of MI.  John was having problems with his 14 year old Atari 7800 console.  After trying a forum (and getting practically no useful response) he came to Best Electronics for our free Atari Technical support from our 39+ Atari Super Tech.  7 or 8 E-Mails back and forth, Best sent John our Atari Super Techs recommended list of Atari 7800 Atari Custom chips he should replace on his ailing 7800 console motherboard.  "My order was on my doorstep this evening. What exactly does that mean? It shipped from CA to MI in one day! Thank you for being patient with all my questions, as well as filling and packaging my order so thoroughly. It has been a pleasure to do business with you, and I will look no further than Best for my future needs." 

A few days latter, follow up Comment back from John:   "Wanted to provide an update for your super tech. He was correct in his second guess, which was the CO10750 I/O chip. Once that part was put in, everything was as it was 14 years ago. I did, however, replace the remainder, just to be on the safe side (as well as new voltage regulator and capacitors). This machine should run strong another 20 years. A large thank you to everyone at Best for their part in assisting me with this repair." 


Ray P. of Canada  Ray contacted Best about a week ago.  He was trying to revive his 25 year old (the last time he turned it on) Atari 800 computer.  A couple E-Mails back and forth.  Ray purchased a Best Enhanced Atari Composite Video cable and a few new Atari 800 Games.  "Just wanted to say THANKS for your responsiveness and excellent service!!  We received our shipment from you guys in 4 business days and we are in Canada - that is amazing!  The Atari 800 fired up great with the new games and cable we purchased!"


Rommel M. of MD   Rommel contacted Best with a list of Atari items he wanted to buy.  We looked over his list of Atari items and suggested he drop the new Atari 825 printer he was thinking about getting and go with the Supra MPP Micro Printer interface (to allow him to direct connect an old Epson printer he still had to his Atari 800 computer).  Reconditioned Wico Ball Joystick, Best Custom made Translucent 800 Dust Cover, Atari 400 / 800 SALT 2.05 Diagnostic test cartridge and the MPP Printer Interface latter.  "Just writing to let you know that the package arrived, and that the Micro Print printer interface works wonderfully.  So does that Wico joystick.  Also like the cover very snug fit.  Will fire up the Salt II tonight.  Thanks, and I will entrust you with my Atari business from now on." 


James B. of MA  James ordered one Bests Reconditioned 7800 consoles with the Best Composite Video mods.  "I love the 7800! The picture is so clear and crisp! The console looks brand new! I don't know how you did it, but thank you for still being here and supporting Atari. You really are the best!"


Michael T. of CA   Michael ordered one of Bests new Atari 600XL computers.  "I just received my order this afternoon.  The packaging was excellent and the Atari 600XL looks and runs terrific.  After bidding on several Atari's on eBay and losing, and then winning one only to have the seller cancel, and finally winning one and having it arrive broken, let me tell you how happy I am to have discovered Best Electronics!  I look forward to doing more business with you.  Thanks again."                 


Joel A. of MI  Joel contacted Best Electronics a few days ago.  He was trying to help his Sister out (she found a used Atari 7800) and wanted to get everything it required to give it as a Christmas present.  So first decision was to ship an Atari order directly to his sister or to Joel who was going to visit his sister for Christmas.  Best told Joel, no problem we will ship his Atari 7800 Supplies direct to him (Priority Mail 9 days before Christmas).  "I wish more folks paid this much attention to detail and customer service. It's been awesome dealing with you. Thanks for turning my order around quickly and thanks a ton for the troubleshooting resource."


Stephen P. of Australia  "I received the Atari 65XE on Monday morning Australian time which is 1 week since posted, very fast.  Of course the unit is in perfect condition.  I would like to sincerely thank you for the excellent communication whilst working out my purchase, and I was blown away by the lengths that Your shipping department went to in safeguarding my Atari in its long trip to Australia, incredibly well packed to say the least."

Scott N. of TX  "Much to my surprise, the Lynx 1 arrived today thanks to some very fast shipping.  The system is in excellent shape and still working perfectly, so it survived the trip.  The quality of the system is excellent, I am going to enjoy buying more games for my barely used Lynx 1.  Thanks again for the help and great service!  This brings back some nostalgic memories from 1990 for me"


Blain N. Of Canada  Upon receiving his 1st International Atari order from Best.  "I received my order today and I am very happy.  I haven't opened the assembler yet but the books look just what I want!  The inserts about your company was a nice touch.  Interesting to read.  I will certainly buy products from you in the future! You've been a great help, thank-you."

Giovanni M. of DE   Giovanni bought an Atari 600XL Computer that ended up with some problems.  After hearing the different 600XL symptoms / problems, Best diagnosed the problem on Atari 600XL Computer as having multiple different separate problems.  The first order Best sent Giovanni, fixed one of the 600XL problems.  After hearing the diagnostic results of the 1st Atari parts order from Giovanni, the second Atari order Best sent Giovanni fixed the remaining 600XL problems.  About 6 to 7 E-Mails and sent videos to Best the Atari 600XL is now up and fully running again.

"I would also like to thank you and the Atari gurus for helping me out with my sick Atari 600xl. You were very thorough and made sure nothing was left out.  Youíve went above and beyond typical customer service you see nowadays. You guys are just the best! If you guys had a rating system, I would give you an A+++ for customer service. I Ďll be sure to come to guys first for anything Atari.


Homer M. of IL   Homer ordered one of Bests New in the box Atari Lynx I consoles.  Before his 1st Parcel Post Atari Lynx order arrived, he placed a second Atari order for another New in the box Atari Lynx game.  "I just wanted you to know both my orders arrived yesterday--for the Lynx 1 in the box with Qix and the Pouch, and the other order for Zarlor Mercenary. I'm a very happy customer."


Michael B. of FL  "I appreciate the great customer service I received when I purchased a Jaguar from you earlier this year..."

Tom C. of NV  Tom wanted to get back into Atari again.  He was looking to pick up an Atari 800XL Computer.  "I have heard good things about your service from the folks at AtariAge.com."  Tom placed an Atari order for a Reconditioned Atari 800XL Computer and some other Atari hardware.  "Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service.  Fast responses, exceptional packaging, fantastic product quality!  Thanks for keeping Atari Alive!"


Andres W. of NY  "As always, Bradley" Owner of Best Electronics "is an amazing person and professional. Very prompt responses to my emails and very helpful with every single detail and questions about my purchase. Customer service was far above and beyond what was expected and I just couldn't be more pleased. I normally don't write reviews but I wanted to reward Bradley for his outstanding service and deep knowledge about Atari. Would recommend to anyone wanting to buy or repair Atari products!"


Andrew C. of New Zealand  Andrew picked up a bargain Atari 800XL computer but needed a replacement Atari 800XL Keyboard.  He asked Best Electronics opinion about the two different new version replacement Atari 800XL Keyboards we had in stock.  "Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.  Thanks for the run down on each keyboard type.  The keyboard arrived this morning :) Thanks so much for the awesome service, help and quick delivery. I will definitely be ordering from you again in the future :)"


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.

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"

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 !

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.

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.

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. Changing the mode on the TV did the trick. Thank you and your Atari Super Tech for your patience, assistance with my problem, and responding so promptly. 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. 


Ronald H. of KY   Ron has been a Best Atari Customer for over 10+ years now and also runs an Atari Internet BBS site which you can view and access, see Atari Links at bottom of this Best Home page.  He was having problems with his Atari ST Stacy portable LCD display and asked about getting a new replacement Stacy LCD Display $$$.   "The one I have is showing  lines or streaks horizontally across the screen, with some vertical ones. 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."

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.

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.

Great prices and great service, I'll be back.  Thanks again!"

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"

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.

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.

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.


Joe W. of IL  "Based on what you said, I'd like to drop the 1200XL Diagnostic Cart and Ext.

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.

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"
