we had several around the labs*, and as a result one was my first home
unix machine.  the 3b1/7300/unixpc/s4 was made by convergent and was
actually a convergent miniframe crunched down to desktop size.

dmd-replacement mtg 630/730 could be had with white, amber, or green
tubes.  all ours were amber so i don't know how the green phosphor
compared to the 5620.  and btw the only difference between the 630
and 730 is firmware.

* i first learned about networking hooking our 3b1s together with our
3b2/400s with starlan-1 -- remember that?
