- With 600GB capacity and 72MB/sec transfer rate, HP SDLT II 600GB Data Cartridges offer high capacity and low cost per GB for customers with prior investments in DLT backup technology.
- Super DLTtape II uses a new Super PET (S-PET) base film enabling an overall thickness reduction of 10%. This results in a longer tape with more capacity versus a Super DLTtape I cartridge.
- Optical servo guide information is coded on the rear of the media, increasing the number of recording tracks on the data-bearing media surface. This enables higher capacity tape cartridges like Super DLT II.
