Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Personal tape drive NAS?

hey_popey writes: I would like to piggyback on the previous "Ask Slashdot" question; do you know of any realistic way to use a tape drive solution at home, not as a backup, but as a regular NAS. I would like, for example, to save the torrents of my linux distributions on it, and at the same time, play the family videos on a computer.
It would seem at a first glance, that the transfer rates and capacity of Linear Tape-Open (1.5TB, 280MB/s in 2010) and the functionality of LTFS would allow me to do that, but I don't know the details, and if this would be economically viable.
