I've used a ditto Easy 800 (external parellel version) for about 4 years now, it's currenly installed on an NT 4.0 Server (Which is also my desktop machine). It's set to do a scheduled backup of our network each night.It's pretty reliable although sometimes if the machine hasn't been rebooted for a while the backup will sometimes fail, either with or without an error message. (But I'm not sure if this is an Iomega problem or a Windows problem).
I have only had a couple of problems with tapes breaking or going bad, but they are a few years old!Speed is a bit of an issue, doesn't matter for backups, 'cos they're unattended, but a bit frustrating when you need to d a restore.
Overall not a bad drive, particularly as I can't afford a DAT drive.
