Description

The WD WD30PURZ Purple HDD is designed specifically for 24/7 DVR and NVR surveillance solutions and is optimized with AllFrame™ technology for system playback and performance. WD WD30PURZ supports 3x the workload rating of desktop drives, making them more capable of handling the higher demands of video surveillance systems. Compatible with many of the leading surveillance and security manufacturers, this HDD is able to support up to 64 cameras. The higher capacity WD WD30PURZ allows you to store more footage, more high definition video, and more high quality frames per second. The WD WD30PURZ is able to calculate optimum seeks speeds. This keeps power consumption low, so ambient noise and vibrations are kept at a minimum. WD Purple surveillance storage also comes with WD's exclusive All Frame 4K technology, so you can confidently create a security system tailored to the needs of your business. Using All Frame 4K technology, WD Purple drives improve ATA streaming to help reduce errors, pixilation, and video interruptions that could happen in a video recorder system.

The WD30PURZ hard drive from Western Digital features 3TB of storage size in a 3.5" form factor. This drive connects to your system via the SATA 6 Gb/s interface so make sure you have an available port on your compatible motherboard. Advanced features of this HDD include a 64MB cache/buffer and 5400 rotational spin rate.

  • Supports for more than 8 bays.
  • Supports up to 180TB/year workload rate.
  • Engineered specifically for surveillance security systems.
  • Tuned for write-intensive, low bit-rate, high stream-count applications typical to most surveillance applications.

Features
The right drive for the right job.
WD Purple drives have been engineered specifically for surveillance, so they're able to withstand the elevated heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations within NVR environments. An average desktop drive is built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. A disruption to a drive could result in a failure that impacts multiple users, your security archive, or even the entire system. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that's tested for compatibility in a wide-range of security systems.

Industry-leading storage. Surveillance you can trust.
WD is a worldwide leader in the hard drive industry. With WD Purple surveillance storage, you have a drive engineered for high temperature, always-on surveillance systems so you can rely on quality video playback when you need it most. Whether you're protecting loved ones or monitoring your business, WD Purple offers performance you can trust.

Trust your view with AllFrame 4K technology
Missed frames and lost footage could be a serious problem when video surveillance needs to be retrieved. All WD Purple drives are equipped with AllFrame 4k technology, which improves ATA streaming to help reduce frame loss, improve overall video playback, and increase the number of hard drive bays supported within a NVR.

Features:
- Engineered specifically for surveillance security systems.
- Tuned for write-intensive, low bit-rate, high stream-count applications typical to most surveillance applications.
- Prioritized write-operations for maximized surveillance performance.
- TLER & ATA streaming support.

Great for nvrs
This drive is designed for constant write duty without spinning down. This mainly happens in video recording systems where video is constantly dumped to disk. This comes at a cost of seek and random access times (reading multiple files from various areas at once is slow). If you are looking for backup, media storage, or network storage, look at the wd red drives. They will perform better in those settings, and are significantly cheaper.The drive is very quiet compared to many other drives. There is no loud clicking noises, or audible spin up sounds. I have some wd red drives next to this system for network storage, and this drive is significantly quieter than those. I as well have some seagate nas drives, but they are so loud i can't even use them in a living space.Anyhow, this is a great drive. It was installed in a generic low cost network video recorder (hisilicon hi3520d) and it runs fine. Most low to middle end dvr/nvr systems use this chip family and the same software, so this should be compatible with them all. The drive has been saving 4x 1080p streams 24/7, and it has done fine so far through 8tb+ of looped writes over the past few weeks.The drive does run quite hot in a small enclosure, and most nvr systems do not have good ventilation. To fix this, i just bolted a 140mm fan to the top of the recorder after split a hole. This keeps the drive running around 30-40c instead of 60-80, as well as provides cooling to the nvrs processor (which was crazy hot and didn't even come with a heat sink). Most nvrs have a dedicated 12v connector for an optional fan, but if they don't you can always get power from the 12v barrel connector or the 4 pin hdd connector.

Packed well with massive bubble wrap. Worked when installed. This drive is the best available for surveillance nvrs.

Not good...
I have purchased a lot of these wd purple hard drives over the years to record video from our cameras. Up until recently i have always had good luck with these and they have been solid, however in the past few months, i have had three failures on drives that were less than a year old. Wd did replace them, so i am happy about that, but i am a little concerned that the quality has gone down. I hope it was a fluke?€?update - another failure. Tried to open a support case with wd about this and it has been over a week with no reply. Changing my rating to two stars.

Great dvr hard drive
I bought this in conjunction with a security camera dvr. The drive installed easily, and has worked flawlessly. I have absolutely no issues with it.The drive shipped in at the same time as the dvr, and i had it all together and running in minutes. Great drive from wd, great service from the seller!
