  1. @mraroid The Acard 6280M card supports OS X and OS 9 boot drives. Acard even advertised it as having 8.5 support. Sonnet sold some rebadged versions of this card in the early 2000s along side their Promise derived ones. In fact Sonnet was selling a lot of rebadged products; their PCI SATA cards were all derived from the FirmTek/SeriTek cards.

    Daystar Universal PowerCache P33 in SE/30

    @Bolle Any discernible difference in speeds between socket and PDS cards?

    Micron Xceed w/ Grayscale Adapter Questions

    An additional purchase I made for my SE/30 was a better PSU from Artmix (when he made them), and replaced the fan to help with airflow.

    Micron Xceed w/ Grayscale Adapter Questions

    Congrats! You can use it with the TwinSpark, but not with Turbo 040.
  5. Outside of the compatibility factor, on a practical level, power and heat are issues to contend with, but easily mitigated with modern PSU and superior fan.

    Daystar Universal PowerCache P33 in SE/30

    The P33 added support for a slew of later 68K machines: l Looking at this, the design was modernized with fewer chips but DayStar altered the location of the support spacer hole: The spacer optimization is clear on this image: I have both card versions, but I never tried either in my SE/30s... got the Diimo and a couple of Turbo 040s.

    The PoweCache (pre P33) was designed to work in the Iici and IIs though the manual states LC and SE/30 support via adapters.

    ABD Keyboard and Mouse Options?

    One can assume that Apple had overlapping stock of keyboards in 1991 after the LC introduction in 1990. It would be interesting to know the sales figures of that era to see what was current manufactured product or simply old stock that had been over manufactured in the preceding period. Looking through my old catalogs and brochures, the product line goes from clean in 1989 to more confused as the 90s dawned. I wish I could find the book, articles on Apple's inventory, as that era had some issues.

    Oh you are right! Just look at the old catalog and noticed there were different versions. Derp me!

    It works in the Iici as is, but the IIsi had a special single slot adapter (no PDS port). I think it was due to power or something like that.

    So I picked up some Macs today...

    Nice haul! This is a nice range of of early to mid 90s goodies. 7100 have the Digidesign cards?

    @Bolle Do you have any recommendations on eprom chips of the 27C512 kind?

    If I can figure out the proper new eproms to order, I will make some.
