SDT7000 Sony DDS2 4-8GB DAT Drive

Sony DDS2 4-8GB DAT Drive Refurbished 6 Months Warranty

The SDT7000 is the Sony DDS2 internal SCSI DAT drive.

The DDS / DAT (Digital Data Storage / Digital Audio Tape) format was initially developed by a collaboration between Sony, HP and Digital in 1991 and uses helical scanning for recording, the same process used by a video cassette recorder (VCR). If errors are present, the write heads rewrite the data.
DDS DAT tapes used between Sony DDS1 and the DDS4 have a width of 3.81mm, known as 4mm, to give a compressed capacity of up to 40GB.
The Sony SDT-7000 half height tape drive is the second generation in the DDS family and the second version of the DDS2 drive that Sony produced. It was manufactured by Sony for vendors including Compaq and Dell, for use as standalone internal and external drives targetting the small business market.
The DDS2 offers 4GB native capacity or 8GB compressed capacity on a single tape at transfer speeds of up to 1556KBps or 5.3GB per hour. Native, the drive provides 4GB of storage capacity with a transfer speed of 778KBps.
The SDT-7000 drive employs the same technology as previous DAT products, and uses DDS2 media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains backward compatibility and can still read and write data to DDS2 and DDS1 4mm tapes.
The SDT-7000 was only available in 50pin SE SCSI-2, interface versions.
