    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    I have tested the paint a little on a button piece, and it looks great. :)

    Might consider this shade of blue. :) Edit: bought them.

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    Made this little graphic for my website's computer list while I'm stuck at school doing nothing. Yes, it was moreso the problem with shipping a CRT in general, but FedEx also just has a pretty well-known reputation for just breaking stuff.

    Wiki/Pages article ideas

    There should be a page about info with old AIO macs, like the infamous 5200... and maybe also a guide for upgrading and maintaining it? I already know you apparently need to replace the fan in them, and you also need to add a 3.3v regulator somewhere on the PSU so you can use the board from a...

    Beta’s obligatory thread

    Neat... I was about to get one but the seller just slept on us. >_>

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    I think I saw one up for auction but I didn't bother with it. :/ I'm very sure shipping these is a pain in the ass. However, while I have the machine apart, I have considered adding a 3.3V regulator to the edge connector to give it support to run Power Macintosh 6400/6500 boards with its slots...

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    Took the machine apart. Plan to add a 3.3V regulator where needed so I can use my 6360's motherboard. I also took the fan out, and it appears to be a normal 92mm fan that seems to work fine? Obviously I would need to replace it anyway if I'm correct...

    Yep, that's exactly what it sounds like.

    We can rebuild her. We have the technology. We can make her better than she was. Better, stronger??? faster... I guess? God, this is hopeless... :^)

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    Using a couple of pictures from the auction listing, I sort-of visualized the color I'd like it to be. It's supposed to be some sort of a very light aquamarine/blue instead of some fugly beige-yellow color...

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    So luckily, I am working on getting a refund for the item, hopefully with how much it was to ship this damn thing. However, it isn't the end of the world! I plan to piece this together with the baking soda+superglue setup, and maybe painting this a very light aquamarine-blue color as to match...

    Gosh, you guys are better than I will ever be at working on these things... >_> Nice video though :)

    I think you have me thinking. I plan to paint er black if I ever do get around to that! Discount 5420 with a Cordyceps board, fun...

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    Yeah the tube itself appears to be fine. I'll seemingly have to take the computer apart to fix this mess though, which is gonna be a daunting task too... If only someone made reproduction espresso cases?? Not telling anyone to go to work right away but it's just a thought

    Nick (k24a1)'s conquests

    So the Macintosh Performa 5210 I was hoping to have intact... didn't arrive intact. Honestly I was very much overconfident with this machine, but that isn't something a lot of precision work with Gorilla plastic super glue and a good set of puzzle solving skills can't fix.

    Killed an MDD logic board

    MDD... nothing of value was lost. /J Hopefully you can get it working, jokes aside. I had one but now I feel better about my dual QuickSilver machine since that's far more reliable despite running slower than some dual MDDs...

    Won a Performa 5210CD, importing it. What should I look out for?

    It makes a bit of a zap noise whenever the tube starts. I don't know if that's normal or not but usually it's not as pronounced on any other CRT I've worked with. eMacs make a loud "DONK" noise, iMacs sound more like a typical CRT, this sounds like it's screeching for a second.

    Yes I did draw my profile picture if anyone is curious. I used an old HP Tablet PC for this and it works great!
