steve...Steve...STEVE! This is indescribably beautiful! I feel like Ralphie's dad in A Christmas Story with his Major Award. Just unpacked it. The delivery guy said hats off to you guys. Well packaged. I'm going to get it moved into the house tonight from the garage and fire it up. I'll let you know if I have any questions. Just wanted to drop this line to thank you again. Well done sir!
Hey Steve. Got the unit in the house and played way too late last night. I'm raving about it and I have lots of friends in the engineering field who now want one too.

I've returned to the States and had a chance to break in the Donkey Kong machine yesterday. I wanted to tell you that it looks great and we've had a lot of fun with it already. My kids love it. Very nice work.
Everything appears to be working great. It is awesome. I'm not going to get any work done for months. Thanks again Steve.
The hardware and software work great. The cabinet hardware is top-notch. It looks very nice. All the games play fine. You can count me in the satisfied customer column.
I picked up my USA Top 300 late last week, and have been extremely pleased with it. The craftsmanship is top-notch, with the protective packaging reflecting that care. My sister-in-law was quite pleased with the addition of Shark Attack, and I've received several glowing comments from neighbors. After my talking it up, there may even be another order coming your way from a buddy of mine in Atlanta.
Again, I'm very pleased, and appreciate the attention to detail you provide.
I wanted to give some time between my receipt of my Donkey Kong 412-in-1 machine and this feedback email so I could give you the best feedback based over time. First of all, what an excellent job. For anyone to find fault in your craftsmanship, they would be setting their standards way to high. The Quality is amazing, even after 5 months of HEAVY use from myself, family and friends. The machine is top quality and everyone that has seen it, immediately asked to play it. For people above 40, it was so unexpected to see their faces light up like kids again. Even though my wife teased me about the purchase, at least once a week she challenges me to “a butt kicking in Galaga”. That alone is worth the cost of the machine!
I did take your advice and find (after lots of searching) a PS3 Serial input controller to play the games that required more spinners and buttons than I had asked for on my machine, in order to keep my machine as close to authentic as I could. That said, I would definitely recommend to anyone asking me about ordering a machine from you to get as many “bells and whistles” that they can afford the first time.
After 6 months of heavy use, I am happy to say that my machine has had absolutely no issues or quality problems. I came on your website to see how to lubricate the joystick as that is the only maintenance issue I’ve even started to notice. The decals, cabinet quality and layout are absolutely top rate. I very much appreciate your hard work and care that went into my machine. My wife and I tease that with the amount of playing time from the 2 of us, our 5 nieces and nephews and our friends, if it took quarters, it would have already paid for itself.
Recommendations for your future Purchasers: Buy the “most” machine that you can on your budget. It will keep you from saying, I wish I had that upgrade. As you may remember, I had told you I went through your website and many others for months before ordering. I am so glad I did. I got a fantastic machine that FAR EXCEEDED my expectations.
I look forward to ordering another machine from you, probably early next year. Thank you again for everything. It was one of the easiest and smoothest processes I have ever had in ordering any product.
Have a great day!

While looking for places to buy arcade games,I fortunately stumbled across Steve's site.He has lots of arcade games,as well as arcade pcbs and marquees for sale.
I bought a Super Pac-man from him which runs great. Everything about the transaction was wonderful. He even showed me around in his shop.
Thank you Steve!

I recently searched video games and repair on the internet, after looking at several sites I called Steve at Ace Amusements. I have a 1981 Midway Ms Pac Man game that I have had for years, it started having issues and then quit completely.
When I called Steve he said "I can repair it", I took it over to him and within 2 weeks the game was better than it was when I bought it. He not only got it working, but he upgraded the program to the faster game.
He also found a door for the back of it that had been missing since I got it. I asked Steve if he could get me an Asteroids game while I was there, as I had always wanted one of those also. He said he had some and would go thru it and make sure it was in perfect condition for me.
When I went to pick it up, he had an Asteroids Deluxe game for me ready to go. Both games work great and I would highly recommend Steve at Ace Amusements.
