It features very impressive performance, high data reliability, extremely powerful server backup software and disaster recovery, so what more can you really ask for? The ADR2 60USB can be found for around US$650 excluding the cartridge which has to be purchased separately. $650 may sound like a lot of money for some, however what you must consider is that, you're purchasing a 60GB USB tape drive, not just some lame zip drive.
