LTO-6 is ONLY available in SAS or Fibre Channel
The Only SAS HBAs that work properly with tape on the Mac platform are ATTO ExpressSAS HBAs
The ATTO ExpressSAS HBAs are only available as PCIe cards, so only Intel Mac Pro or the very last G5 Power Macs will work.

$3K won't even get you a bare drive from a manufacturer.

To get a full blown, standalone LTO-6 solution, expect to spend a minimum of around $4,800. LTO-5 is around $3,990.

As for currently available non-server tape solutions for CatDV Desktop, nothing's there "yet" ... watch this space.
