Netbackup 7 Depuplication - versus EMC Data Domain

I’m currently working with a client looking to deploy Netbackup 7.1 for their 300+ virtual machines across 36 ESXi vSphere 5 hosts. The managed service provider has proposed a deduplication device based upon EMC Data Domain DD890. At the moment I’m looking at alternative options (DD is expensive!) –are there any experiences, white papers, case studies anyone is aware of with regard to native data dedup with NBU 7.1? Any other feedback would also be welcome!
