question

Does this come with a cable and mounting screws?
Asked by: Derek B.
I'm sorry but if you are concerned about mounting screws on an 18TB drive then I am pretty sure you have no need or understanding of this drive. I would be inclined to say you would be better off asking Geek Squad for assistance. No offense intended just stating what everyone else is thinking

Is this purple drive suitable only for surveillance, or could it be used for video editing?
Asked by: Erik
This hard drive is optimized for long periods of constant access. DVR longevity and throughput is the main use case. That being said, this drive is a 7200RPM drive that can offer fast transfer speeds that would be sufficient for live editing. An SSD would perform much better, however.
