4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive and Reliable

Pros: Tapes are inexpensive, reliable, and outlast the industry recommended tape replacement of 1 year. I will continue to buy these tapes from NewEgg as long as they are carried.

Cons: Tapes only last about a year and a half before the error rates become unacceptable by my standards with the rotation we've set up, which roughly equates to 18 runs per media set. This isn't generally a con if you strictly follow industry standards and replace your media sets on a yearly basis.

Other Thoughts: To the other guy that claimed a bad batch of tapes and a bad set of replacements, the problem likely isn't your tapes.

1 out of 5 eggsNo confidence in the tapes

Pros: Inexpensive, I guess.

Cons: Ordered 5 tapes. The first batch of tapes arrives with no factory seals, and loose in a box. The tapes were banged up and the cases for a couple were broken. RMA'd it and while the second order was better packed, there was still no factory seal, giving us little confidence in using the tapes for our corporate backups. After talking with a Newegg customer rep, they confirmed that the tapes did not ship sealed in any way.

Other Thoughts: If factory-seals don't matter, these tapes might be OK for you. However, since there is no guarantee that these are indeed new tapes, we have absolutely no confidence in using them for our company backups. We had to return the tapes, at our cost, and will be purchasing the tapes elsewhere. As a long-time customer, this is the first time I've been thoroughly disappointed in Newegg's service as well as the product offered.

5 out of 5 eggsWork fine for me.

Pros: We have had 24 of these loaded in a Dell TL2000 (IBM drive) with no problems for about a year.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I hate to see only one review give something like this such a bad rap without giving a success story. If you're uncertain, try ordering one and testing it before you order the bulk of them. I guess that's all I can suggest.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I purchased 10 of these tapes. Backup jobs fail, fail, and fail again. The tapes were found to be "defect free" by the manufacturer but they replaced them anyway. The replacements are just as bad.

Other Thoughts: Used with a Quantum LTO4 drive. I have tried four other brands of tapes and they have ALL been trouble free.
