DLT7000 Overview (retired product)

The DLT7000 is now a retired Quantum product, and is no longer available new.  However, we can offer refurbished units available for sale with 12 months RTB warranty.  We also offer a fix price repair service for your faulty or broken DLT7000 tape drive.  Repairs are quick (usually 2-3 days, a same day service is also available for extra cost) and warranted for six months  Please contact us for details.

Built with the same advanced linear recording technology, precision tape guiding system, and adaptive control mechanism proven successful in previous generations of DLTtape drives, the DLT 7000 was the first to employ the innovative Symmetric Phase Recording Technique and the four channel recording system. An ideal choice for intense data backup, archiving and near online storage applications for mid-range computers, network servers, high-end workstations and mainframe environments running Windows NT, NetWare, UNIX or proprietary operating systems.

DLT technology is still very reliable, and as such drives are still very much in demand.  DLT8000 drives are read and write backwards compatible with DLT7000, DLT4000 and DLT2000 drives.  They offer a good transfer rate and use the widely available DLTIV (DLT4) media cartridges.  Craystone have internal and external refurbished drives ready, and tested, for sale, and offer a 12 month UK warranty.
