5 out of 5 eggsAV Drive

This review is from: WD WD Purple WD40PURX 4TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Quiet and works

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: This drive is designed to be able to record and stream I believe up to 24 HD cameras at the same time and eliminate lagging and frame drop. So far I have run 5 1080p cameras on this drive without degradation. Except with my software, each camera uses about 2MB/sec write speed to drive, so 5 is only 10 MB/sec writing. Also, I am running a core I7 and SSD boot drive, so there is power. One caveat I have learned is that your software is most critical. I have tossed away software that uses up to 6 times more CPU resources than the software I settled upon. so take that into consideration when designing your entire system.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD also in NAS configuration

This review is from: WD WD Purple WD40PURX 4TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: - although not meant for NAS arrays, I had an emergency situation when I had to replace 1 of 4 WD Red 4TB drives in my hardware array - it worked very well, with some throughput tests, I noticed the scores went higher than with all 4 NAS drives being WD Red 4TB.

- reasonable price, comparable to WD Red 4TB

Cons: 2 years warranty instead of 3 (like the WD Red 4TB provides) - I can live with that, given that my hardware storage controller runs this in RAID 5 configuration.

Other Thoughts: I bought it at a different vendor, because Newegg shipping policies exceeded my budget and time of arrival.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

This review is from: WD WD Purple WD40PURX 4TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Bought 4 and all formatted and worked for at least the week before i wrote this. They were very quiet and seemed responsive. Cost even came down recently.

Cons: Cost more than cheapo drives.

Other Thoughts: I didn't have a chance to try them out with cameras attached yet.
