hi,

I want to purchase a reliable and afforable tape backup that supports FreeBSD 4.x, preferable SCSI (preferable) for about 1-4 GB of storage. My budget is about USD 400-1000. Can anybody recommended any models /brands to me that supports FreeBSD?

Also, does the statement mean that ANY SCSI device (i.e. all SCSI tape backup device) will be supported on FreeBSD?
>>>>>
With all supported SCSI controllers, full support is provided for
SCSI-I & SCSI-II peripherals, including hard disks, optical disks,
tape drives (including DAT and 8mm Exabyte), medium changers, processor
target devices and CDROM drives.

Thanks

In that price range I think you'll be limited to one of the 4mm DAT drives. Just about any of the major brands (Segate, Sony, etc) should be fine. I've used various brands of DDS-2 & DDS-3 drives on FreeBSD. The DDS-4 drives should work, but I can't personally vouch for them.
