[PLUG] Tape Drive Selection

The tape drive on my company's Linux web server is starting to die, so 
I was wondering what the list's recommendations were for a 

Our current drive is a HP SureStore 5000, which is an old SCSI DDS2 
DAT drive. We'd like the new one to be SCSI, fast, and be able to
backup 4 gig natively at the bare minimum. All that, and we don't want
to blow the budget.

Has anyone seen or used the VXA-1 from Ecrix? It seems to fit the
bill, but I'm a little hesitant because there's only a single company 
supporting the format. What are the other alternatives that members of
the list have experience with?
