Though I've had excellent experience with DAT drives.

Not flawless. Though most of my problems were with older drives, WangDAT 
DDS-1 drives. And one HP DDS-3 that I smoked the heads on before I 
discovered that it had a 12% duty cycle. (A fact which I noted was NOT in 
the manual. They gave me warranty service.)
