I was hesitant about purchasing this cab, but i'm glad i did! The photos don't do it justice, its far nicer in the flesh. Its a solid construction, easy to put together, and easy to modify if needed. Like the rest say, the instructions are not great, but they will do...
Anyone looking to buy a cabinet, take the plunge and buy this one. Superb quality and looks the nuts. Order the plexi as well as perfect fit for marquee and bezel artwork. Don't go for inexpensive alternatives. You will be disappointed. As pointed out before instructions are poor bit common sense will help you through.
Well packaged and well thought out. Feels nice and solid when put together
Fantastic cabinet can not fault apart from very poor instrucion manual. This was not a problem as soon worked out where all the parts go. I made a wood frame to mount the monitor and fitted a lcd screen only from a samsung hdmi games monitor 24" . This monitor once removed from the case fots perfect but i have worked with elecyronics for years so was no problem. This arcade cabinet is very well designed and great quality . I am looking forward to ordering some graphics to finish the cabinet. Iots of room inside the cabinet for a pc but i am using a raspberry Pi3
Ive spent such a long time looking for exactly the right cabinet and hovered over the "buy" button for a long time. Advice simply is just buy this one. Its simply fantastic. The design and build are very high quality, not one complaint. Customer service was also second to none and I had a few conversations which helped put me at ease. Its worth pointing out that this is of quality that you will/would find in a professional arcade. My only comment would be a few more pictures to help you along with the build would have been handy.
As other reviewers have said the instructions aren't great, but after 3 hours I got there in the end. For me it took a while to work out how to mount the speaker piece - just make sure the bit with the grove is at the back and facing the button panel not the top. I'm a keen DIYer but usually make mistakes, but take your time and you'll be fine.
Service from the team has been excellent.
Good quality materials and a nice looking cabinet when completed. However, the instructions need to be clearer, it's easy to misinterpret parts of them as nothing is clearly itemised or marked in the kit. Take your time and double check everything before you commit to gluing/screwing anything together.
Andy was very helpful with a part that was damaged, and sent a replacement quickly. The kit is now a lot cheaper than when I purchased it, and it was good value for money before!
This is a quality cabinet, put together with no problems in about two hours - really looks the business.
Ordered a flat pack cabinet and eagerly awaited its delivery. On arrival the courier had clearly droppped the box on it's corner and one panel was badly damaged. These guys then got on the case and had a replacement to me early the next morning.
As for the cabinet itself I am really happy easy to assemble just take your time, the instructions are poor but it's all common sense. It's really solid and welll built, fits perfect in my games room due to its slimline measurements.
Anyone thinking of buying one - then stop thinking and get one !!!!
