That is the ADvantage of the internal drives, true enough.

Howsomever there is a DISadvantage as well: need maintenance on your tape drive? Gotta bring your system down.

I know that some people favor internal tape drives because the maintenance
on them is included with the machine. Not so with tape drives that are

in the CEC directly does not make it an internal tape drive.)
