Tape storage (Magneto drives) pwn all. Easy to use, disks are cheap, and store a TON of information for up to 300 years... I voted tape.. Dad uses Magneto for financial records...

They are damn good; but the ease and speed and longevity unless you have it and need masses of datastorage doesn't make up for price.

Yeah; I saw a Terabyte Hard Drive in Germany... classic. It was about that in Euros but still... classic

i kno. but yeah. tapes are nice. i agree. cheap and store a huge amount. course, my piano teacher has over a good 2,000 CD's of just random music of all these composers and players, so i just recommneded the terabyte storage. that would be alot of tapes too so he said one little package would be nice.
