Which LTO 5 Drive to Buy
on Nov 14, 2012 at 7:00:23 am

Im looking between the HP and the Quantum, i was informed that they were two of the top. Any insight on which is better. Not looking to spend a crazy amount and really only need a single loading top deck.

Thought?

thanks

While there may be slight differences under the hood, HP actually builds LTO-5 drives for Quantum.

What's your OS? If Windows, both are good brands. If OS X, our customers report little to no support from Quantum as soon as you mention OS X.

Hey Tim... Has anything changed with Quantum's OSX support? Is HP the only way to go if you want good support?

The answer about Quantum is unknown. Their team at NAB was mentioning OS X, but when questioned about the level of support, no one could answer the question (even for their new M&E products).

If you're looking to buy, check out our offerings of the HP technologies (http://ww2.productionbackup.com/hardware-bundles). Our kits include everything that you need - from software to cables to media - and a single point of contact for the sales cycle through to full support and warranty help - no more vendor finger pointing :).

Thanks for this. I like the entry price. That is the the idea, something mobile that we can grow from.

i will look into these further. thanks
