LTO Options w/ Library

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Nothing to really do with Backup Exec issues as this is more of advice/opinions on purchasing a new LTO 4 or 5 drive (with a library option if possible). Right now we have two old Exabyte VXA drives that have actually been quite solid for the past 6 years, but they're just not fast enough. When I go to backup my B2D's to tape one took 48 hours  to complete on a VXA2 (240GB) and then other is around 18 hours on a VXA-320 (400GB).

Any recommendations on who to look at as far as manufacturers? Quantum, HP, Tandberg, etc?

Thank you in advance!

HCL 12.5 as specific. But make sure you check the HCL for the BE to make sure that is compatible.
