A. Florinda McCarthy wrote (7 Mar 2000): Yesterday I asked people to cast their votes for their preferred DLT tape brand - Fuji, Maxell or Quantum. Here's the results - thanks to everyone who replied!
All tapes are the same and come from the same factory (just different brands): 7 votes Quantum are the most reliable:8 Fuji are equally reliable and cheapest: 6 Experienced problems with Fuji: 2 Experience problems with Quantum: 1 Maxell/Sony/Digital are the most reliable: 1 vote for each
Taking account of the amount of people who felt that all tapes were equal, it seems like Fuji is the best choice in terms of price and performance.
