Under the Tape drive utilization entry, after the paragraph that is,

add an additional paragraph that states "It should also be noted that some tape drives do not operate optimally with a lower than fully rated speed. If data is delivered too slowly to the tape, it has to stop, rewind a little, and then begin to record again. This leads to reduced performance and excessive wear to media and drives. Some drives can be configured not to stop when the data stream is not constant. In this case, they write empty blocks to the tape which reduces tape capacity. The QIC and DLT tape drives types are affected by this behavior."
