    My company needs a tape backup solution. We already have about 30 tapes but need the actual tape backup device. The tapes were left behind from the previous company.
    Now we just need the tape drive.

    The tapes we have are:
    Maxell Super DLTtape I (160GB) - These are the 1/2 inch tapes.

    A SCII drive is not needed and our network drives are already on a RAID.
    We need tape to backup and store offsite.

    Do you guys have any recommendations on what drive to use?

    I've used HP's stuff with very good results - but it is SCSI

    Almost all STK, IBM, HP SDLT drives are rebadged Quantum drives. Heck most of the STK, IBM, HP, sdlt drives use quantum drivers, untouched.

    Go Quantum unless you find a deal on a 3rd party rebadge drive with a good warranty.

    SDLT drives (technology) are pretty good.

    I think he means SCSI disks. Besides, I haven't seen a SDLT drive that isn't scsi, except fiber.
