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!
