    Assuming they can get the same capacity drive reconditioned as new, with a good support contract on it, I don't see any problem with reconditioned. The usual problem is that you can only get older generation drives reconditioned, since they flood the market when new, higher-capacity drives are introduced. – MadHatter Jun 13 '17 at 7:20

Pros: Cheaper (big savings), warranty, might look as a brand new tape.

Cons: Not the original retail packaging. Possible cosmetic defects(scratches, dents etc). It is somewhat of a lottery.
