Is that a 8mm drive? Does anyone have opinions on 8mm drives vs 4mm
drives? Our last experience with 8mm drives, over 6 years ago, showed very
poor reliability and we're not sure we want to head back down that road...

....But we need a 10GB+ backup device and DDS-3 cartridges are still priced
at $30USD+ each; with our current rotation scheme, that would mean over
$1000USD just in cartridges...
