Officially, the newest drives that manufacturers appear to support in the Dell PowerVault 136T / Adic Scalar 100 are LTO3.

We have LTO2 drives now, but they just aren't quite cutting the mustard anymore.  We want to take advantage of the built-in encryption capabilities of LTO4, as well as the increased performance.

Has anyone here gone against manufacturer recommendations and tried installing LTO4 drives in their PV136T or Adic Scalar 100 library?  If so, what was your experience?
