TLZ10-AX DEC TLZ10-AX DDS3 12-24GB DAT Drive

DEC TLZ10-AX DDS3 12-24GB DAT Drive Refurbished 6 Months Warranty

The TLZ10-AX is the Digital/DEC branded Sony DDS3 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-9000 half height tape drive is the third generation in the DDS family. 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 DDS3 offers 12GB native capacity or 24GB compressed capacity on a single tape at transfer speeds of up to 2.4MBps or 8.4GB per hour. Native, the drive provides 12GB of storage capacity with a transfer speed of 1.2MBps.
The SDT-9000 drive employs the same technology as previous DAT products, and uses DDS3 media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains backward compatibility and can still read and write data to DDS3, DDS2 and DDS1 4mm tapes.
The SDT-9000 was only available in 50pin SE SCSI-2, interface versions.
