    I've come into possession* of a Dell TL4000 and I need a bunch of tapes to test out on the unit. I"m hoping there is someone that has a stack of LTO-4 tapes in good condition that I can purchase from them.


    *I hate Ebay

    EDIT: I'm good folks, got 50+ tapes. thanks for the goodies.

    If it's only for testing you can write one level back so also LTO3 would work as well.

    The price for LTO-3 and 4 are similar. If everything works out I plan on rolling those tapes to my 'production' SAN and start backing up properly.

    Just checked my stock. I have 3 or 4 5-packs of LTO5. Not sure if those will work? I have 1 5-pack of fujifilm LTO4 still sealed. Going off amazon prices $70 shipped?
