Exabyte cuts prices on VXA-1 tape drives, cartridges

Exabyte, which specialises in tape backup systems, has cut prices more than 20 per cent on all VXA-1 tape drives and VXA tape cartridges.

The new VXA-1 pricing structure is effective immediately. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for an internal VXA tape drive is $US699; VXA tape cartridges range from $26.95 to $66.95.

Exabyte VXA-1 is the only DDS replacement product to offer multiple tape cartridges that provide capacities ranging from 1GB to 66GB, meeting all DDS capacity requirements, according to Kelly Beavers, Exabyte's vice president of marketing. What's more, the company will offer a second-generation VXA product, the VXA-2, in the second quarter of this year. The VXA-2 tape drive will stay within DDS pricing parameters and offer users a viable upgrade path from the VXA-1, Beavers said.

Exabyte currently has original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreements with Compaq, Fujitsu and Apple to sell the VXA-1 product line. Additionally, several OEM evaluations are currently in progress with the VXA-2 drive, Beavers said.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
