  1. $200-$300 - yes $500 - hard to justify spending that much...
  2. It was a while ago, but the voltages were a little on the low side, so I just turned the pot up a smidge while the computer was on and it instantly fixed it. I had already recapped both the logic board and the analog board without any improvement in the wobble. Someone suggested reflowing the solder on the analog board's monitor wires but that didn't help either. Then I read somewhere that it could be due to low voltage and bingo!
  3. I had a Classic with a wobbly screen and after I turned up the voltage (I forget where the adjustment is on the Analog Board) it worked perfect.
  4. The preorder thread is here, but I don't think he's making any more of them. You could PM him and see if he's got any extras.
  5. I'm all for original equipment, but my technical knowledge is limited to recapping, and if that doesn't work I look for a replacement...
  6. It was definitely the power supply. I did the mAcTX LC conversion with a modern power supply and everything works perfect now.
  7. I think I'm on v0.8.0, so I definitely need to upgrade.
  8. Excellent review! And now I know why formatted SD cards from my MacBook Pro won't work with the MacSD... With the ability to also use this as a CD emulator, I felt that this would work better as an external device that I could use with several of my vintage Apples. So I ended up putting mine in an Apple HD 20SC case with an SD card extension cable - you can see the project here. The instant power-up and no need for external power is a huge plus with the MacSD. The MacSD works exactly as it's supposed to with the included SD card (which was a nice bonus!). I've even
  9. It's a deal! I was wondering what part of MN you were from. We need to find a few more locals so we can have a LAN party!
  10. Cool project! I'm partial to "Scuzduino" myself. Will you include an Elsa brush with each order?
  11. I stand corrected - thanks for clarifying!
  12. Everything is configurable by popping the MacSD's SD card into your modern computer and editing the macsd.ini text file, so no difference. An SD extension cable is highly recommended...
  13. Thanks for the explanation - makes sense now. If anyone else wants the IIgs CD "images", they'll be up on my server soon.
  14. I found a few more IIgs CD images and have the same issue. The images won't mount as CD images but work fine if you mount them as HD images. So I guess that's one workaround...
  15. Just added an RGB LED to the HD so I can monitor SCSI activity, SD activity, and Errors with one light. If you do this, just make sure you get an LED with a common cathode instead of a common anode.
