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:
