At around 90 a unit I dont think you can beat them for reliability and
speed.

An excellent idea, but it needs mentioning that you have to keep magnetic 
media far away from other magnets--a radio speaker (a most common degausing 
source) can wreak havok with tape or magnetic disc alike, for example. We 
won't go into the effects of an atomic airburst, since that wouldn't leave 
many people who actually care. :-o
