I am looking for an alternative to a tape backup solution.  Is anybody using a rev drive as a backup?  How reliable is it?  What does the media cost?

I am using a rev drive for my backups -- the drive costs about $350 - 400 and the media about $60 - $80.  They hold 35/90 GB data and work well as an alternative to tapes.

Beware if you are using Backup Exec versions before 9.1. The destinations folder pauses every time the cartridge is changed.
