    HP EH970SB reviews

    StoreEver LTO-6 Ultrium 6250 SAS External Tape Drive is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible support & software, Rarely works on Mac, don't buy I'm a big believe in LTO for data storage and archiving. It's cost effective and secure, easy to safely store lots of data for many years. This is no solution though. I'm running it to a Mac pro over thunderbolt 2 via a Highpoint Rocketstor I/O box. I have 12 or so tapes of data archived. A recent Mac OS update seems to have killed the drives ability to mount tapes (again). I have spent lots of time with the friendly HP folks in India, have had two replacements overnighted (which took almost two weeks). There is an obscure program called HPE Library and Tape Tools which is the only way to check or update firmware from a Mac. With a little digging through HP's bafflingly awful, sprawling mess of a Web presence, it can be found, downloaded, and installed, but then it does not work on Mac. There is no way to update firmware, no way to decipher the many bizarre error codes and malfunctions it has, barely any way to convince HP's tech support that they even sell LTO drives (just google this drive and see what actual info and support you can find). Terrible. definitely go with Tolis, mLogic, anyone else.
