Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of IBM Ultrium 2 Tape Drive 3580 Model L23 as supplied by the manufacturer
The IBM TotalStorage Ultrium Tape Drive 3580 model L23 is designed to offer high capacity, performance, and technology designed for the midrange open systems environment. It incorporates the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) IBM TotalStorage Ultrium 2 Tape Drive, which more than doubles tape drive performance over the generation 1 LTO Ultrium Tape Drive (Ultrium 1) and provides up to 35MB/sec native data transfer rate (70MB/sec with 2:1 compression). In addition, with the use of the new IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 200GB Data Cartridge, the Ultrium 2 Tape Drive doubles the tape cartridge capacity up to 200GB native capacity (400GB with 2:1 compression). IBM Ultrium 2 Tape Drives can read and write original LTO Ultrium Data Cartridges at original Ultrium 1 capacities and with improved performance, up to 20MB/sec native data transfer rate (40MB/sec with 2:1 compression). The 3580 Model L23 comes with a SCSI Ultra160 LVD attachment for connection to a wide spectrum of open system servers. Other Ultrium 2 Tape Drive enhancements include:

- Digital speed matching - to adjust the drive data rate with the host, which can help reduce backhitching and improve throughput performance
- Power management - designed to help reduce power consumption
- Channel calibration - to help customize each read/write data channel for optimum performance
- Separate writing of multiple filemarks - designed to help improve performance when writing multiple files
- Larger internal buffer - double the internal buffer size of the Ultrium 1, to 64MB
- Faster drive speeds - designed to promote faster data access time, reduced rewind time, reduced cartridge load time, and faster cartridge fill time

The Ultrium Tape Drive 3580 Model L23 is an external stand-alone or rack-mountable unit and is the entry point for the family of IBM Ultrium tape products. The Ultrium Tape Drive 3580 model L23 is designed to provide an excellent migration path from digital linear tape (DLT or SDLT), 1/4-inch, 4mm, or 8mm tape drives.

Characteristics of the device.
Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
