The Samsung SATAHDD3000SG WD AV-GP Power-Saving Hard Drive (3TB) manufactured by Western Digital can be used for storing hi-definition audio and video files. This hard drive with 3TB storage capacity is optimized with SilkStream technology to capture data from up to 12 simultaneous HD video streams. With 24 x 7 operation, low temperature, and good reliability, this WD AV-GP hard drive is suitable for DVR / PVR and video surveillance applications. It supports SATA 6 Gb/s and SATA 3 Gb/s interfaces and delivers IntelliPower rotational speed.

High capacity for audio / video storage
This WD AV-GP SATA drive offers storage capacity of 3TB.
24 x 7 Reliability
This drive is designed to last in high-temperature always-on streaming digital audio / video environments such as PVR / DVR, IPTV, and video-surveillance systems.
This hard drive is tested for compatibility in a broad range of AV products, including set top boxes, DVR / PVR, and mainstream video surveillance systems and is compatible with selective PVRs and surveillance systems that are compatible with 3TB hard drives.
Reduced Power Consumption
It consumes less power, produces less heat, and gives good reliability.
Noise levels have been minimized to less than 1 sone (a sone is a subjective unit of loudness as perceived by a person with normal hearing) - virtually below the threshold of human hearing.
It is optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to 12 simultaneous HD streams. SilkStream is compatible with the ATA streaming command set so CE customers can use standard streaming management and error recovery options.
Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
No-Touch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
PWL (Pre-Emptive Wear Leveling)
The drive arm frequently sweeps across the disk to reduce uneven wear on the drive surface common to audio video streaming applications.
AF (Advanced Format)
This technology grows hard drive capacities and enables increased areal densities.
