Digital DECstation 5000

In September 2009 I started to downsize this collection to a few items and then archived this section to its own subdomain at the start of October 2011.

This system

In March 2006 I gave this system away to a collector who had the time to do something with it.

The storage expansion unit is actually a better match in size for the <a href="/computers/digital/decstation2100/"  title="Computer collection: Digital DECstation 2100">DECstation 2100</a> rather than this system. - ds5000-02.jpg ds5000-02.jpg, 1280x1024, 132KB

The front of the system unit features a floppy disk drive on the right hand side. - ds5000-03.jpg ds5000-03.jpg, 1280x1024, 119KB
The front of the system unit features a floppy disk drive on the right hand side.
The rear of the unit features (from left) SCSI, ethernet, two serial and a keyboard/mouse port across the bottom.  In one of the three expansion slots is a framebuffer. - ds5000-04.jpg ds5000-04.jpg, 1280x1024, 133KB

The front of the case, including the floppy disk drive, tilts forward to provide access to the hard drive and greater access to the memory slots. - ds5000-05.jpg ds5000-05.jpg, 1280x1024, 247KB

A closeup of the logic board.  The rightmost expansion slot has a framebuffer installed which makes this a DECstation instead of a DECsystem. - ds5000-06.jpg ds5000-06.jpg, 1280x1024, 398KB

The front of the storage expansion unit features a panel that I believe can be changed for one that supports a CD-ROM drive. - ds5000-07.jpg ds5000-07.jpg, 1280x1024, 128KB

The rear of the storage expansion unit features a power connector and two SCSI connectors.  Underneath a cover are dip switches to set the SCSI id of the installed devices. - ds5000-08.jpg ds5000-08.jpg, 1280x1024, 135KB

This cable converts the DA-15 connector on the system unit to the two distinct connectors for the keyboard and mouse. - ds5000-10.jpg ds5000-10.jpg, 1024x768, 114KB
