If budget is tight I'd go LTO-5, we did, with a storagedna system. And we went the LTFS route to help longevity rather than propriety software like BRU
At least with an LTFS tape all I need is the drive and a driver for the OS and I can read the tape like a drive. I can catalogue it and restore files easily.
Buck per TB the LTO -5 prices worked out best and even the tapes are better value.
And at 1.5 - 3 TB its just right for drive copies.
