No issues with product
Have been buying from Tape and Media for years, and afraid my command of English is not strong enough to describe what a pleasant experience it has been every time. Always prompt delivery, right product, best prices and superb service.
Cant' imagine how it could get any better
Bought tapes for Dell Powervault TL2000. Way less $$$ than Dell, tapes work great. Order came quick with no hassles.
I use Tapeandmedia.com every time I need to order more LTO backup tapes and they are by far best vendor I work with. They are always very quick to respond to my requests and go the extra step to make sure my orders arrive on time or even earlier. I would highly recommend them!
Tapes are exactly as advertised and not had any issues with them going back several years. [...] I will never use anyone else to order tapes from!
Would not trust my LTO backup to any other tape than IBM. Their quality is beyong reproach
Good price [...]
Used for tape library archiving.
