" Very nice to save space on the desk or lab bench,

each one stood in for 4 terminals in our test stations.  we didn't
have room for that many terminals!

" you could open a
" window to local serial ports or to StarLan connections, IIRC.

i don't remember starlan, but then our bldg didn't have a network when
'our' 5620s were new.

" I remember white CRT phosphors as well, so maybe this was a 730 or 730+?  

yup.  5620s were all a high-burn-resistant green but 600/700 series
could be green, amber, or white.  ours were amber.

the 630/730 could have a 10bt ethernet card.  could that be what you're
thinking of?
