Their sales strategy sucks ass. If it was reasonably priced, i.e. somewhere around the £5000 mark, they would sell a lot more to the DR community.

As far as I know:
1) you need a tape reader that reads the model tape you have (be aware of compatibility issues)
2) if one used, you need to have the backup software used to make the backups on the tape
3) quite often files need to be converted to PC format so can make sense of th7e data
4) quite often the tapes are not damaged, but people just need data extracted and converted off the tape as they no longer have the reader equipment
5) who can tell you what or what not to charge?!?

This is not accurate, doubly so for older 400k/800k Mac floppies.
