    Default IBM PS/2e monitor 9507

    Just got one of these monitors with a PS/2e and it's a lot stranger than I originally thought. Would this be a touchscreen monitor? If not then why does it have passthroughs for the keyboard and mouse? And it has a couple small holes to the top right of the screen, would that be a microphone?

    According to that it's not a touchscreen, so what could the keyboard and mouse passthroughs be for?

    With the M-MVA or ActionMedia II?

    Wow that's cool. Any pictures? I always wanted one of these to go with my PS/2 E.

    I'll post some pictures soon. On my list to do while I'm stuck home is to take the PS/2e out of my kvm and set it up standalone with the original monitor, keyboard, and numpad

    Remember, the 9533 was "PS/2e" a power saving system. The KB and Mouse passthroughs were most likely to allow the monitor to power down

    To quote Peter Wendt, "All-plastic case with 3 catches at the front to accommodate the cable / converter box for the 9507 (that box, which detects the mouse and keyboard signals and turns on / off the screen)."

    CONSERVATION: The IBM 9507 Color Display incorporates power
    management facilities that activate in two stages as noted, dependent
    on elapsed time since the last update of screen data
    o Quiescent mode in which screen is dimmed after 30 minutes without
    keyboard or mouse activity.
    o Power down activates after a further 15 minutes without keyboard
    or mouse activity.
    Power-down mode operates without affecting system power and does
    not cause data loss or integrity violation.
    The screen will automatically recover from either power saving
    state as a result of first use of keyboard or mouse.

    MACHINE REQUIREMENTS: The IBM 9507 Color Display is VGA compatible
    and has been tested with the IBM 9556 and 6384 system units. It is
    already announced in conjunction with the PS/2 E system unit.

    Ah, ok. That makes sense. Pretty ingenious

    IBM sold a similar product for normal monitors, IIRC on is on Flea-Buy right now [has been for a while].
