Sort of OT: LTO drive recommendations for LTFS on MacOS

Apologies if this is a bit off topic, but this seemed to be the forum where people were most likely to have experience...

I'm looking to get an LTFS capable LTO-5 drive for use on MacOS, connected through an ATTO SAS controller. I'm wondering which brands/models people have had luck with, and which to avoid. Quantum seems decently priced, but I've seen some older (1-2 years old) comments from people having trouble with them on MacOS. Others seem to swear by HP, but HP is somewhat more expensive.

Ideas and comments?

Discovered the backup forum just after posting this, so apologies. If anyone here has experience, I'd still love to hear it, though.

We have a Quantum here.
Get the big rackmount one you can put 40 tapes in. Not the standalone thing.
Use Presstore for backing up.

Give Tolis Group (Bru) a call. They sell Tolis branded HP drives and robots at highly competitive pricing. HP LTO hardware is generally considered to be the highest quality stuff. We've got a 24bay LTO-5 robot we bought from Tolis. It has been a great piece of hardware.
