A recent and concise article on the subject can be viewed here:

"...another common misconception about degaussers, due to how hard-disk technology has changed. 'In the old days, tapes and disks were coated with gamma ferric oxide, which is easy to erase and change the flux at 750 oersted [a measure of magnetic field strength],' Carboy says. 'Today most tapes are made of metal particle oxide, which is hard to erase and change the flux and requires 4,000 oersted. People think they can purchase a cheap or inexpensive degausser to erase the tape or hard drives.'
-->Important general guideline

"Warranty length is also a critical factor. Peripheral Manufacturing offers a limited lifetime warranty, compared to the more standard 12-month warranty."
