    I believe that QUIC-24 has both higher density ...

Sorry ... No ... As I stated before, there is no density difference
between QIC-11 and QIC-24 specs.  All QIC-02 interface cart tape drives
that I've seen use 8000ftpi density.  Some tape drives might support
different densities, but that is not related to QIC-11/QIC-24.

						 ... and more error checking.

Yes ... As used internally by the cart tape's intelligent controller.
