    LTO 3 then in an autoloader setup. DB and others have Tandberg setups that they are very pleased with.

    LTO3 here, we've found it much more reliable than the old AIT3's we were using.

    LTO3 all the way, it's exceptionally reliable for a tape system. We had the quantum LTO3 tape changer at my last school, although we only had one tape carousel for it, so it only held 8 tapes which was more than enough. It makes some strange noises when it works, but does the job well; 2 years of operation and not a single hardware fault!
