Exabyte is a good deal, remote sensing people are using them on a daily
basis here. They are using tapes like others were using floppies a few
You might want to check the firmware though. We had here a number of
odd drives in a EXB-120 juke. It was said that it was the combination
that made it behave strangely, but I had problems hooking the thing up
to a Sparc20.
EXB 8505 are _very_ reliable though. Also, you will be able to read a
tape written on one driver on another, which is an advantage.
