Today I talk about a Genuine Atari Controller 2600 (Atari 2600 Controller (Atari)) acquired on eStarland. This controller has been acquired to be used in conjunction with the Adapter to connect two joysticks Atari 2600 the PC via USB (NEW Dual Port PC Computer USB Port Controller Adapter for ATARI 2600 JOYSTICK) I spoke in Last items.
These Atari controllers 2600 are the original controls, manufactured by the Atari in the years 70/80, and accompanying the Atari consoles 2600 USA. A eStarland buys and sells this and other items related to former and current consoles.
In the case of Atari controllers 2600, there is no guarantee which model will come. As the store is in the US and the price to send a control used there is somewhat prohibitive in most countries (more expensive than they would pay for it) it is very likely that most of the controls available are those sold in the United States were the same.
The Atari Controller 2600 It came packed in a plastic bag. Externally it is in good condition, only with orange accents with ink rather spend the next part of the button. Moreover, a curiosity. If you do not remember correctly, the drivers that came with the Atari 2600 the Polyvox, sold in Brazil, did not have the details in orange. They were there, but black as the rest of the box, no painting.
The rubber feet of Atari Controller 2600 They are all in place. The wire is in good condition. The rubber part of the joystick is intact, uncut, bites, etc. The plastic box is also not mark or scratch.
Unfortunately, the electronic part of Atari Controller 2600 I was not cool. The button is activated all the time, even when not under pressure. I even open it to try to see if there was a problem, but found. So I contacted the eStarland, who promptly offered a refund to my account or a replacement control to be sent with my next order. How did not intend to make any other purchase soon, I opted for reimbursement. After that bought other Atari joysticks 2600 on the eBay, new, and they worked perfectly, but I will speak of this in another article.
The purchase was made on the day 07/02/2012, and shipped the day following (08/12). I used the cheapest shipping, “USPS 1st Class Mail”, that does not offer tracking. The package arrived on 27/02. It came marked “Merchandise” (Merchandise), described as “Acessory”, com declared value of U.S. $ 11,00 (U.S. dollars two). The package was not taxed.
Before the problem with Atari Controller 2600, I sent the following email on 27/02:
I received the Atari 2600 Controller today, but it’s defective.
It behaves like if the button was pressed all the time, no matter if it is actually pressed or not.
The answer came on 01/03:
It’s likely that some dirt may have gotten inside the controller. We can refund you the amount to your eStarland account or we can provide a replacement with your next order. Which is more convenient for you?
Replied on the same day:
I’ll accept the refund because I’m not planning on ordering anything else soon.
And on the same day answered:
Credit has been applied to your account.
Plus point for the eStarland for solving the problem quickly, but negative for sending control problems, although they have suggested that the problem may have occurred in the transport. Anyway, I come back to buy in eStarland smooth, and I will continue recommending the store.
And I'm ending here the article on Genuine Atari Controller 2600 (Atari 2600 Controller (Atari)) with a positive recommendation. All I ask is that, again, click the "Like" and give a retweet up there (or down there), otherwise I would be very unmotivated and shut the blog to dedicate myself to cooking.
