Surveillance-Class Drive
WD Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be compatible in a wide-range of security systems. These drives are designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for the 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment. Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals and are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.
Surveillance Storage
The WD Purple Surveillance Hard Drive is designed for high temperature, always-on, surveillance security systems to ensure reliability and quality video play back when you need it most.
Improve Performance with AllFrame
This WD Purple Surveillance-class hard drive is equipped with AllFrame technology which works with ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve playback and increase the number of drive bays supported. AllFrame reduces video interruptions that commonly occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems. Missed frames and lost footage can be a problem when an event occurs and surveillance footage needs to be retrieved. WD Purple with AllFrame provides the confidence you should expect when it's time to play back and review critical surveillance footage.
Optimized Performance for Up to 64 Cameras
With support for up to 64 high-definition surveillance cameras, this WD Purple hard drive gives you the flexibility to upgrade and expand your security system in the future.
IntelliPower Rotational Speed
In terms of speed, this drive operates using WD's IntelliPower rotational speed. This means that the rpm speed of the drive depends on the operations being performed. If the drive is performing mostly sequential reads and writes, its speed will be increased as compared to if it were performing mostly random mode operations. This 6TB drive also features a 64MB cache helps ensure uninterrupted data transfers.
Low Power Consumption
With integrated IntelliSeek technology, this WD Purple drive calculates the optimum seek speed which lowers power consumption, noise and vibration that can damage and cause drives to wear out more quickly.
1 million hours MTBF
1 million hours mean time between drive failures
Windows and Mac Compatible
Compatible with Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP
Compatible with Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, and Snow Leopard

Please bear in mind that Windows XP does not support drives with capacities greater than 2TB. Compatibility may vary depending on user's hardware configuration and operating system

I use this as a cloned backup of my main SSD drive. As infrequently as it will be used, it should stand the test of time.

Excellent Storage solution for 3-camera residential system

By Gary
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-17

Runs smooth and quietly. Should easily have room for up to 7 days of HD video from three 4K security cameras. Western Digital (WD) has a solid hard disk drive reputation of its own, and I always have confidence when buying from B&H. This 3TB was an in-between size that I wanted for my particular solution, but was not offered in a bundle by the other merchant, from whom I purchased my system. Saved $60-$70 by sourcing it separately at B&H! Perfect integration into my new system - and a snap to install.

Noisy hard drive.

This hard drive makes a lot more noise then the 2tb hard drives that this 4tb drive replaced. The old drive is 4 years old and is still working .when it is. Quiet you can here it 15 feet away.the old drive is the same brand. Not sure if this is normal or a bad drive.

I have about 30 of these drives in the field (or varying capacities) with zero failures. I would recommend these over the Seagate SkyHawk drives.

question

I have a ZOSI dvr for 8 channel. Can this work to record video from them
Asked by: Fedner E.
Hi I agree with both other comments. Yes a 4TB is better than the 1 TB. It also depends on how much recording time you want. 2TB with 24 hour recording you should get 2 weeks or more. If that what you require The cameras and recorder you have is analog so it wont use a lot of space. Like others had said your DVR does have a max size allowed for the DVR so you should check its max size and yes its pretty much plug and play. Dont forget to format the HDD. The GUI in HDD will have that option.
