No such thing like ``the best foobar'', but i'm rather happy with my
Tandberg TDC4222. It's a 2.5 Gig QIC drive, it can work with
everything from 150 MB to 2.5 GB QIC cartridges, even with hardware
compression for the 2.5G parts.
It's in the same price region as a DAT drive, but many people consider
helical drives (DAT, 8 mm video Exabyte) a poor backup solution.
Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
