59H4435 IBM SLR5 4-8GB QIC Drive SCSI interface

IBM SLR5 4-8GB QIC Drive SCSI interface Refurbished 6 Months Warranty

The 59H4435 is the IBM branded SLR5 quarter inch 4/8GB internal SCSI tape drive.

Tandberg's SLR5 is based on the highly reliable SLR technology platform that has gained industry recognition for its quality and reliability. The standard 5.25-inch half height form-factor allows easy installation and integration into most PC servers and workstations. It is backwards compatible to lower capacity tape drives such as SLR5, SLR4, SLR3 and SLR2 allowing current and new SLR customers to migrate from lower to higher performance and capacity and protecting their investments.
Data tapes used by Tandberg in these early SLR series have a width of one quarter of an inch and have become known as QIC (Quarter Inch Cartridge). Later tapes from SLR7 right up to the SLR140 actually had tapes with an 8mm width, although they were still referred to as QIC.
The Tandberg SLR5 half height tape drive is an early generation of the SLR family. It was manufactured by Tandberg for vendors including IBM, for use as standalone internal and external drives targetting the small business market.
The Tandberg SLR5 offers 4GB native capacity or 8GB compressed capacity on a single tape at transfer speeds of up to 48MB per Min or 2.7GB per hour. Native, the drive provides 4GB of storage capacity with a transfer speed or 24MB per Min.
The Tandberg SLR5 also supports in-line data compression which provides an effective compression method that maximises system performance.
The Tandberg SLR5 drive employs the same proven technology as previous Tandberg SLR products, and uses SLR5 media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains a small amount of backward compatibility and can read and write data to SLR5, SLR4 SLR3 and SLR2 tape media.
The Tandberg SLR5 was only available in 50pin Ultra LVD/SE interface versions.
