HP Colorado 5GB internal drive question

A new client of mine recently purchased a "new" computer that has an HP Colorado 5GB internal tape drive. I let him know that this is an old drive but I can't find an exact date when it became available or the date it was discontinued by HP. I searched the HP website and the closest I can get is by infering from user manuals that it was released ~1998 and from the message boards that it was discontinued in ~2001.

If someone has dates that are bit more exactly it would help me a great deal.
