mLogic MTAPE-TB2-LTO6 overview

  • 1Description

Backup and archive server and business data using the mTape Thunderbolt 2 LTO-6 Ultrium External Tape Drive from mLogic. Featuring compatibility with several backup and archiving utilities, the mTape LTO-6 is also able to read and write to LTO-5 tapes and read LTO-4 tapes. The unit is also equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports that are certified by Apple and Intel. In addition to providing data transfer speeds of up to 20 Gb/s, the Thunderbolt 2 ports also allow Thunderbolt 2 and Thunderbolt peripherals to be daisy-chained together using the mTape LTO-6. For users who need to create multiple backups simultaneously, a 6 Gb SAS expansion port allows data to be written concurrently to two or more LTO drives.

The mTape LTO-6 also supports the Linear Tape File System (LTFS). Using LTFS, mTape mounts to your system just like a hard disk with drag and drop functionality. When combined with the free Mac-compatible mTape Utility, the process of formatting, mounting, and ejecting tapes is made more user-friendly. Also included with this tape drive is a Fujifilm LTO-6 cartridge, a Fujifilm Universal Cleaning Cartridge, a 3.3' / 1.0m Thunderbolt cable, and a universal power adapter.

Once installed, just connect mTape to your Mac and launch the utility to safely format, mount, and eject tapes.
mTape SAS
mTape SAS can be attached to the mTape Thunderbolt 2 to enable simultaneous backups/archives to two LTO 6 tapes for the ultimate in data security (requires backup/archive software supporting this feature). mTape SAS can also be used as a conventional standalone SAS tape drive.

    mLogic MTAPE-TB2-LTO6 reviews

    mTape Thunderbolt 2 LTO-6 Ultrium External Tape Drive is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Fast This unit works beautifully with BRU PE. Just download the driver from mLOGIC's site to make it work. Our first test went well and recovering 16.5GB of data took 1 minute 40 seconds. For ease of use and having a quality product, we'd recommend this!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from UPDATE: Works well and great support. In my previous review, I gave this a 1 star stating the unit was not working and support did not answer my email. I sent the unit back and B&H sent me a new one. The new one works very well, and I did contact support because of a slow backup (turned out to be a software issue with a 3rd party backup software, not the unit itself). Support was very responsive and even tested the unit overnight. My only complaint is that it is pretty loud and the fan stays on even if you turn off the drive.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't talk to the software more than half the time This drive simply doesn't work 2 out of 3 times I try to load a tape. It just sits there as if no drive is attached. I have zero confidence at this point that anything I backup will be recoverable. Do not buy this piece of trash.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead on Arrival. No Customer Support. The unit did not work. Every time I turn it on, it gives me error 5 which indicates HW problem. I tried contacting mLogic's support both via email and phone and they never got back to me. Despite the non-existent customer service, I'm returning the unit and ordering a new one to give it one more try. Will update the review after receiving the replacement.
