Tape and VTL....

So, I noticed the following on one of the forums I frequent:

We have a few corrupted tapes here and I was just wondering if anyone else here has restored any data using some particular software?

Now, of course, I've got some snippy come-back like "Ah....tape...God Bless You but we're using VTL" or "Tape? Got a magnet handy?" but, it got me thinking. ATA disk is so freaking cheap these days that it actually seems quite ridiculous to spend XX dollars on slow, offsite storage mechanism like, well, tape. So, what I'd propose is one of these: EMC EDL. What do YOU think?
