Nice disk

Pros: Fast disk

Cons: No cons

Other Thoughts: What can you say? Its a HHD disk. No problems so far. Drivers for Windows 10 working perfectly. Good disk, cheap to buy.

No Snake Oil Here - Very Noticeable Difference

Pros: VERY responsive.
Major improvement for my NRV over a general purpose drive.
Quiet. Haven't heard even the slightest chatter yet.
Temps are good. Only slightly above room temp at 30C
Built for 24/7 use.
It actually performs as designed and advertised

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was skeptical of WD's claim, "Engineered specifically for surveillance security systems," and if using a drive from their Purple line would actually be noticeable from the keyboard.

It is.

This drive replaced a spare Seagate Pipeline in my DIY NVR system running Blue Iris The computer is freshly assembled and the spare was used while waiting on the Purple to arrive. The Pipeline worked fairly well but had a slight delay launching and playing clips from the menu. It wasn't annoying but it was there. However, with the Purple now installed the clips snap open like text files and play instantly with no lag, even while recording other camera activity. I'm very impressed with the purpose-specific design of this drive.

I'm running 4 cameras now with 2 more on the way, and while that's not much for a NVR system, the Purple has been a major improvement. It's not all marketing hype and it really does show.

Real world speeds are good - not blazing fast or slow but very acceptable for its purpose. I didn't bother running benchmarks because I really have no need to test for tasks it will not be used for. It is what it is and its only job will be to quietly run Blue Iris 24/7, and for that the Purple completely (IMO) obliterates the SG Pipeline it replaced.

A general purpose drive can handle almost any task, for a while, but if you have a specific plan or project in mind I would recommend finding a drive to match.

WDC Purple 1Tb 5400RPM

Pros: Very quiet, Its only running in a Security system DVR So I am sure it would not be to fast in a PC. But Its super cool to the touch even though my DVR does not have a fan. I always had good luck with WDC going to stay with them,

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again. From Newegg.

WD GOOD

Pros: Installed on an Intel 2nd Generation Desktop PC build. Run very quiet and steady. Satisfied with the performance enduring long hours of operation. As a main drive does good. Worth the purchase.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Far cheaper than an SSD.

Quick Quality Drive

Pros: I'm using this drive on a machine with steam and have my games loaded on it. It's running nice and cool and games load pretty quickly for the specs being 5400rpm, but I assume the large 64mb of cache is helping with that. The fact that this drive is meant for security, which tend to run 24/7, means that this should prove to be more reliable than most drives. I'm very happy with the current price of it and is great for the storage and performance provided.

Cons: The pictured drive's sticker looks cool, I wish the drive actually looked like that. In actuality it has the generic WD sticker with the info on it. Doesn't take away from the quality of the drive, but if I had to give a con, that would be it.

Other Thoughts: Great drive.

Great drive for a great price, really

Pros: Keeping in line with Western Digital’s other newer drives, this one is a lot quieter in terms of vibration. Speeds are pretty decent overall and on par with what I would expect (see other for speeds). Cheaper than the Red drives with most of the benefits. These drives don’t appear to experience the same slow spin-up that some full on NAS drives do.

1TB drives are extremely cheap these days so you can buy a bucket load of them compared to even a few years ago.

Cons: Not a whole lot I can think of really. No way to know over time how these will hold up comparatively.

Other Thoughts: Speed tests performed with Crystal DiskMark:

Good Quality Drive

Pros: This is a good little high quality hard drive for surveillance systems, as the WD Purple line is designed for the high I\O loads encountered in these systems.

I used this drive in my custom server chassis Windows based video surveillance machine, and it had no issue with the several lower definition cameras I recorded to it. Since it is only 1TB and I wanted high retention, I am using this drive for only lower definition cameras, but I tested it briefly with several HD streams as well and it performed flawlessly.

The drive feels like it’s well built, and it operates cool and quietly.

When benchmarking the speed of the drive, I obtained the following results:
Average Read Rate: 121.1MB/s (1000 samples)
Average Write Rate:: 117.6MB/s (1000 samples)
Average Access Time: 19.94ms (1000 samples)

Cons: It might be nice if it were 7200RPM, that may have yielded some improved performance, but that would also sacrifice some of the cool and quiet operation. As long as you know what you are getting, there is nothing wrong with the drive being 5400RPM.

Other Thoughts: 1TB is a bit small for some video surveillance applications, especially high definition, but if you know what you’re looking for and 1TB is enough, this is a good drive for you.

Very Good Drive

Pros: Very quiet
Cool under load
Handled a 4 camera 720p surveillance system without a hiccup.
Plug and play replacement for a 500GB disk, absolutely no issues with installation
Deceptively fast for a 5400 RPM drive.

Cons: None! Given the price of this drive I would be very happy to include this in a normal PC build let alone a surveillance setup.

Other Thoughts: With increasing drive size and falling prices, I'm beginning to wonder just how long 1TB spinning disks are going to be around for. Certainly this sort of drive because of its performance I think will fare better than a normal 5400. Very satisfactory experience using this drive so without doubt 5 eggs
