Desktop drives vs. surveillance-class storage
You wouldn’t use a bicycle to transport cargo across the country because
it’s not the right tool for the job. You also shouldn’t use a desktop hard drive
in your surveillance security system because it wasn’t designed for that
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 harsh 24/7 always-on,
high-definition surveillance environment. Desktop drives are built to run for

Optimized performance for up to 32 HD cameras

Lower power consumption
Low power consumption is crucial in high-temperature always-on surveillance
environments. With exclusive IntelliSeek technology, WD Purple drives calculate
the optimum seek speeds which lowers power consumption, noise and vibration that
can damage and cause desktop drives to wear out more quickly. When you invest in
a premium surveillance-class drive you worry less while enjoying the benefits
over a longer period of time.
WD Purple storage is tested and recommended for use in surveillance and
security systems up to 8 bays and optimized for 32 HD cameras. For additional
surveillance capacity, look at WD datacenter hard drives. WD Purple is not
recommended for use in NAS environments, please consider using WD Red hard
drives for desktop RAID and NAS environments or WD datacenter hard drives for
rackmount or large RAID configurations.
