Here is something new we've been working on. It's our new LED backbox board that automatically dims itself when the game starts and fades back to full brightness when the game is over. It's all the benefits of having the full LED backbox board, brighter more even light, without the glare that comes with it. Also the brightness level and dim level are adjustable so you can set them to look just right for your machine. Our backbox boards will now all come with this feature (even at a lower price point than before!) and the dimming module will also be available to work with LED panels you may have purchased before or even made yourself.

We are completely redesigning our website so you won't find it on there just yet but we will have it up for our Black Friday Sale!

Regular price and black Friday discount to be announced shortly.


Check out the video of it in action!

The new website is really coming along!

Thanks for the bump, I'm really happy with how it turned out as well!

We'll be posting our black friday deals a little later on, but we will have backbox and under cabinet kits on sale!

Our new website is now online!

Visit www.arcadeupkeep.com to check it out!

Our dimming backbox LED panel will have a normal price of $68 as listed on the website (cheaper than our normal kit before and this includes the dimming feature!)

Our black friday sale is 20% off our backbox panel and smart color under cabinet kits.

Also if you order 3 or more of either one you get free shipping on top of the discounted price!

Also see our website for our sweepstakes Black Friday through Christmas to win free kits.

Thank you Schwaggs, honestly with the cost of everything including the custom designed and built dimmer circuit, I can't reasonably drop the price any more on them!

Someone asked on another post so I'll clarify it here as well. It's 20% off the listed price so the backbox panel rings up as $54.40. $68 is the normal, non-sale price.

Quoted from Schwaggs:

However, I'm not DIY'ing new sets for my new machines when I can buy the whole enchilada for $55!

There ya go!

Quoted from gweempose:

It's hard to get a much more ringing endorsement than that.

I agree! And thank you to both of you.

Quoted from snaroff:

Would be so easy for Stern to add a software setting for doing the same thing.

They would have to use something different than the fluorescent tube they use now and that would add cost, I don't think they're interested in doing that, but I agree they could easily if they wanted to.

Quoted from snaroff:

for folks considering fancy $300 glass for solving the glare problem (which it doesn't, this is a smart product that I'd like to have on all my machines (not just Sterns).

Quoted from gweempose:

To me, this is the ideal solution.

Can't argue with that!!!

Quoted from frolic:

Looks good, but you'd have to get it for every machine you own, so that is kind of tough.

If you decide to put in a big order, email me and we can work out a discount for you.
