Hi Charles -
I am not an expert on this subject, but according to Cache-A, the LTO4 tapes are completely compatible with other LTO 4 appliances. Specifically, if someone used Bru to create the LTO 4 tape, this would be compliant with the Cache - A, which means you allegedly can stick in your BRU made LTO4 drive in a CacheA, and it would read it.

The CacheA LTO4 Prime is $6995 retail. The more expensive products that you refer to are the larger LTO5 with a larger internal drive structure. For example, you can get the CacheA Pro with a LTO5 and 4TB of internal drivves. But if all you want is the standard LTO4 CacheA box with the 1 TB internal drive, this is $6995. You can get LTO4 tapes from any mail order computer catalog company on the web. You don't need to have them "thrown in". And when you buy the Cache-A, they give you a cleaning tape, and one Fujitsu cartridge.
