5 out of 5 eggsRoyal Purple People Buster

This review is from: WD Purple 1TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10PURX

Pros: This is Superb Drive for your home PC Surveillance System. I was having trouble with my other BN drive(s) that would get full and even though the software was set to over-write the already captured video. The now full drives would cause a problem with the OS software and i would have to literally reinstall the OS and all the other software. I discovered drive(s) would send a some sort code or signal that corrupted some area of the OS Software or the Video Capture Software or Both.
Now that i have replaced these drives with the New WD Purple Surveillance 1TB Drive i have no issues with this problem. Does a Great Job of doing the job it was designed to do.
I waited until the drive got full and then started to over-write the Old Video before i wrote this review because i wanted to Make Sure that the drive functioned as specified and i was not just having some other problem with a software bug. There is No Software Bug just a drive problem with video capture on a drive that can't handle this sort of 24/7 operation with video frames and other parameters that is needed for video capture software.

Cons: Does not arrest law breakers or slap them around...

Other Thoughts: The warranty could be longer. Instead of 3 years it should be (IMHO) like the WD Black Drives. Other than that the Royal Purple Drive is Great

5 out of 5 eggs24/7

This review is from: WD Purple 1TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10PURX

Pros: specific purposed drive. Came well packaged.

Cons: slightly premium price, but well worth it.

Other Thoughts: solved some problems I was having with my Zmodo NVR.

OK..so I wasn't using an approved drive, but it did make a difference (this time)

Not reindexing and coming off the bus for a fraction of a second kept the zmodo operating correctly for notifications.

So I'm convinced that using a purple drive for a nvr system is a must to avoid a headache. I mean really. Save $40 and have to take $100 worth of antacid chasing gremlins?

In all fairness to me,I have been using standard drives in my older nvr's without any issues, but these were far less resolution models.

5 out of 5 eggsUsing for HD Home Security

This review is from: WD Purple 1TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10PURX

Pros: It seems to be handling the 24hr recording and continuous over writing of my HD Security system. I'm recording 3 HD camera's 24/7 and 3 other HD cameras when motion activated. Been nearly a month without a problem. Great product thus far.

Cons: None thus far, price is ok for 1tb.

Other Thoughts: 1 tb hard drive seems to record 3 1080p@30/fps for about a week before it starts to overwrite.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a harddrive, it is cheap, nuff said.

This review is from: WD Purple 1TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10PURX

Pros: Cheap and it is western digital. I have never had a western digital go bad. I know it's just random chance, but I am superstitious. I have had maxtor and seagate drives crash lots of times.

Cons: Wasn't free!
