The answers to the post seem to be stated in a way as if i am saying tape is better than solid state, which i am not saying - so ppl saying what they prefer is neither here or there, my point is from reading the above posts, is tape so much less reliable than solid state ? Is tape - Hell and solid state heaven ? this is how the whole solid state technology comes across, which in my opinion is over inflated.

IMO, YES is is!

Tape has its benefits due to record lengths and long term existence in the market.
Tape is no doubt OK for archiving, but I've had my share of dropouts and loss data, FAR more than hard drive issues.

Actually, I'm really talking about solidstate, not hard drives.
With the price of memory growing cheaper, it's only going to get better.
Also, archiving to media such as Blu-ray should work well.
