My two RZ56s and an RZ57 seem happy on my DECStations.  Strange that
they aren't happy in your VAX.

The TKZ10 is 525MB with DC6525 tapes, and 320MB with DC6320.  The tapes
are easily findable on eb*y for < USD $1 / tape usually...  Not the
fastest thing in the world, but I trust QIC more than DAT or 8MM.  :)
