Like-New Media

Like-New Certified Media
To maximize the buying power of the dollars in your tape budget, MPS is proud to offer significant savings on our certified “like new” media. Our commitment to quality is demonstrated through the careful procedures we follow to ensure you receive a tape that works as good as new! 

Buy-Back Process
MPS is extremely particular about the media we buy back for resale. We select libraries carefully, based on age, brand name, and knowledge of our customers and their storage methods. When you’ve been buying media for 19 years, you can afford to be choosy.

Erasing/Degaussing
Every cartridge that enters our facility is degaussed or erased, depending on whether the tape has a servo-track. We use our industrial-strength degaussers for complete erasure of data and other signals on standard tapes. Servo-track tapes are erased on our drives using time-tested, industry-proven software.

Cleaning
After being inspected, our cartridges are individually hand-cleaned using our proven methods. Exterior labels and adhesive are removed and each tape is brought to a “like new” exterior condition.

Testing Process
Our tapes are tested using our time-proven diagnostic software to ensure they meet or exceed new tape specifications. Our stringent testing process ensures our customers receive the high quality of media they deserve for their critical data. 

Packaging
Tapes are inspected again prior to being labeled and/or initialized, if desired. They are then shrink wrapped and securely packaged for shipping.

Guarantee
Each tape is backed with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Period. This in no empty promise—MPS has been in business for over 24 years and is one of the oldest and most respected organizations in the industry. We encourage you to put our certified media to the test: Once our customers see the savings and quality in our certified media, they almost never go back to new.
