Looking to sell IBM Library LTO4 tape drives.

Sunstar Company just received a shipment of a couple of hundred of these drives – all full height, to be sold with warranty. Yes we are in the process of testing and based on pre4milimary results (35%) it looks as if this batch is very clean.

The IBM System Storage™ TS1040 (machine type 3588, Model F4A) is designed to be installed in an IBM System Storage TS3500 Tape Library (machine type 3584) to offer high capacity and performance for the midrange open systems environment.

This model incorporates the new Linear Tape-Open (LTO) IBM Ultrium 4 Tape Drive, with enhanced maximum tape drive throughput over the IBM LTO generation 3 Tape Drive (Ultrium 3).

It has a native data transfer of up to 120 MB/sec., and supports a 800 GB Data Cartridge.
