    Quality on these tapes is fantastic

    Posted by Dillon Brown on 23rd Feb 2020

    The build quality on these tapes is fantastic and the read and write speed is so fast. I worked on a show a few years ago which was archived to LTO6 tapes and these LTO8 tapes blow them out of the water in terms of read and write speeds. Vast improvement in technology over the past few years. AND having the custom barcode label is great. Highly recommended tape!
