5 STARS!!! Great Kit. Even for beginners. My 9 year old son and I were able to build it from the kit in less than a week spending only 2 hours per day. (I am a complete klutz and generally not handy!!). The final product came out amazing – looks as good as a professionally made one but knowing that you put it together yourself means so much more. It’s a great weekend or summer project to do with your kids. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys playing classic video games from the 70s, 80s, 90s!”e.

Super easy to assemble. Really well designed and thought out kit. Excellent instructions available online videos. Plug and play. Ryan is great to deal with.

This was a terrific product. The build I ordered with Wreck-It Ralph graphics turned out great. I had never tried a project like this before but the tutorials and videos helped me put the kit together perfectly. GameRoomSolutions was very helpful with my questions during the build. My family is impressed first, by such a cool arcade system and second, that I was able to put the kit together to come out so well.

    I’m very satisfied with my order, even though I had some minor setback with my order. Ryan is the best person you can ever buy from, very fast at responding emails and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this kit, super sturdy and beautiful too. Great project, great salesman. Amazing. Just amazing.

    I received my Unit a few days after ordering and everything that you need is included. Ryan answered all of my questions and he was very helpful. Something’s that I had issues with were that the t molding for the controller board was cut on the wrong side and some of the colors weren’t the same on the led buttons, but I was able to exchange it easily. it was very easy to assemble even for someone with no electrical skills.
