Arcade 1Up cabinets in various condition for sale/auction

Deal Link:
Price:
$181+
Retailer:
AuctionMaxx
For those of you in the GTA looking for Arcade 1Up cabinets to mod, I found some deals at AuctionMaxx. Some are auctions, but they have some "buy now" pricing on some too.

There are decent sized modding communities around these cabinets on Facebook and Reddit.

I'm not familiar with AuctionMaxx, and their Yelp reviews are not great (otherwise I would have bought one myself). If, however, you're feeling daring - it looks like some good deals are to be had, especially if you win an auction for a lot of 3 cabinets for under $500.

You'd be surprised at how many adults are buying these. A lot of people spend as much as the purchase price in upgrades.

Auctionmaxx *was* good. Not sure I'd want to spend that kind of money on these machines, especially when their warranty period is only 14 days (Last I checked).

I have seen angry posts on my local Kijiji a few times advising to avoid AuctionMaxx, that's stuff that's been shipped though.

I would only suggest this deal for modders. Most of the modders in the A1Up community are buying these machines just for the shells. They're replacing the screens, boards and controllers. Heck, I've seen some vinyl kits go for almost $200USD (see: https://arcadegraphix.com/product-categ ... lete-kits/ )

Auctionmaxx deals mostly in unclaimed shipping and storage containers. I have purchased collectibles from them in the past.

Could be great to snag some deals, but don't expect any kind of customer service, troubleshooting, or warranty.

Looks like a lot were just salvaged for parts, I'd save the headache. Not to mention the practice of calling most things "New" that are obviously used.

Really - my assumption was they simply made deals with manufacturers to get rid of old stock and returns.
Years ago, I purchased a new thinkpad (sealed box) and it has been great, and even had full online warranty.

I used to pass by their warehouse, and while you could find an odd deal, I honestly can't believe how much they try to charge for some things. More often than not, the price is too high for things that have no warranty and a higher chance of breaking down. The warehouse really let's you see how much weird crap they have.

They may get inventory from multiple places. I emailed them one time to see if they were getting more stock of an item. They emailed me back stating that their stock was unpredictable as their products came from unclaimed shipping containers.
