It's definitely a TZ30 as that was the only DLT tape option for uVAXen. The
thing that's puzzling me is the fact they've shoehorned an RX33 in there - I
thought the 3100-10 was the only machine to have floppy capability......
I certainly never sold any and I don't remember it being an option for the
bigger machines. Pity it's front cover is missing too, but for 20-odd quid I
wouldn't complain :)
