...I do the external drive thing. A trusted employee takes them off-site. They're rsnc'ed nightly.

I remember working with tapes for years very well. I remember a worn out tape, corrupted data, and unhappy folks.

Also, with the quantities of data we're dealing with now, the external drive just seems to be the better alternative.

You do have to coach the folks on procedures do they don't damage the drives though. That is a drawback.
