IBM 5153 CGA Monitor
What an excellent piece of vintage computer history, the IBM 5153 CGA Monitor. Ours was made in 1983. Part of a recent donation of a lot of equipment discovered in an basement, our 5153 is in great working order after some deep cleaning and reconditioning. This monitor pairs up nicely to our IBM 5160 PC/XT!
Original condition of monitor after we picked it up…
Check out the inside for obvious defects, needs cleaning inside too…
Quick test after first round of cleaning, surprise it appears to be in working order!
After thorough cleaning and reassembly, looks good as new.
Colors don’t look too bad!
