No, it requires assembly. The top half with the LCD is one unit, but the bottom half consists of boards that need to be screwed together. The top half then mounts on top of the bottom half (with screws) and the control deck then mounts to that. Not very difficult to assemble if you can do Ikea furniture.

I also second this as an awesome buy, especially with the Sams Club deal (less than retail and includes the pinball buttons). Out of the box it is has a lot and with the ability to expand through UCE files or the HDMI/USB/Bluetooth inputs, can do almost anything you want. I've got the 1.0 and 1.1 versions and both are pretty solid.

I'd also recommend getting the ALP (Arcade Legends Pinball) if you ever see it back up for sale from Sams Club. While their price isn't any lower than buying it from AtGames, the return policy from Sams Club will be better than having to return to AtGames if something breaks or arrives damaged.

Can't recommend this enough!! This thing is a dream for anyone looking to build a home arcade. Easy to assemble (<1 hour from parts to completion), quality components, full size joysticks and buttons with compatibility for almost any arcade game (Sam's clubs version includes pinball buttons!), great looking monitor and loud/clear speakers, easy to access I/O options (HDMI in, and 2 USB-A ports right on the front panel), tons of customizability (saUCE!!). As a video game collector, this has been the best $500 I've spent to get my retro fix on. There really isn't a better value (other than to DIY build).
I snagged one earlier this year for this price on recommendations from fellow SDers, and it's been awesome. I have three young kids (6 and under), and they love both playing with me on it or on their own. Out of the box, the system feels fairly sturdy and looks great. The builtin games are an odd mix at times with ports from various platforms (arcade, Genesis, etc.) and a surprising number of big licenses (several Disney games, Tetris, etc.). Where it really shines though is the ease in which you can add games (search "Legends saUCE" on Reddit or YouTube) to it with just a USB drive or the ability to plug a PC in to the HDMI and use a USB OTG cable to use the arcade controls with the PC.

Some items to note are that the default warranty sucks (so I'd recommend using a credit card which extends it) and AtGames support isn't great. I personally haven't had issues, but it's something to be aware of. The height is pretty good, but if you're somewhat tall (I'm 6' and it effects me), you will probably want stools or a riser (I got some sick Star Wars ones from Home Depot, A1Up also has cool ones). Although it supports some light guns, there's a huge shortage due to the ongoing chip shortage and no sign of them coming soon. Finally note the built in chip can only play through the mid 90s type games/emulators and you'd need an external PC for anything more modern (particularly anything 3D).

Overall I would definitely recommend it for anyone who still has nostalgia for classic gaming/arcades. I had been planning on building one at some point, but with the crazy price of wood, that plan had been put on hiatus. This has now totally filled that desire and probably for a lot cheaper than DIY.
Outstanding price. Easily worth $500.

It's full size, assembly took me about 20 minutes. It's easy to add games, look up the reddit community for saUCE. Dropping a PC in is harder. The monitor has HDMI but the controller hook up is proprietary, not USB.

It's pretty much full size height and width but the depth is much less shallow than a full size arcade unit which is nice. These are bigger than Arcade1Up units.

You could mod it with a computer or Raspberry Pi but you would then not be using the proprietary AtGames OS at all and would just be changing the input. You would have to use RetroPie or something else.

This is great, but I would recommend the stand alone if you don't want to be tethered. I got two of them from Walmart for $99 and the ability to use them on any projector, TV or monitor is well worth the traditional feel sacrifice.
I got the standalone from those sales as well. While great and has been used all over my house, it's difficult to not use the deck hardwired for something more input or time sensitive. I've been in the habit now of turning in pacman more than a second in advance due to the lag. Either way it's had not to enjoy it.
