Sony LTO 5 Tape 1.5TB / 3.0TB - LTX1500G

Sony's 5th generation of LTO Ultrium tape brings native storage capacities up to 1.5TB per cartridge. Compressed, LTO 5 tape can store up to 3.0TB. To achieve these capacities Sony has made breakthroughs in coating, surface smoothing, and particle innovation.

New Hub Design
The new wheel hub design in LTO 5 maintains an ideal gap between the tape and the reel for even greater stability during use.

Smooth Operator
LTO 5 backup tape from Sony is lubricated for more stable operation and smooth movement of the tape. This new, stable operation allows for more than tens of thousands of passes between head and tape.

Smaller Magnetic Particles
The new, smaller magnetic particles that make up LTO 5 tape are 75% smaller in length and 50 smaller in volume compared to LTO 4 particles.

Environment Friendly
LTO 5 cartridges are made up of 34% recycled resin helping Sony to reduce virgin resin usage my 95 tons per year.
