1TB AV SATA 6 Gbs 3.5" Purple
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Reading other reviews, I think that the issue is heat. DVRs have poor ventilation, and I think the WDD drives are more heat sensitive than other brands. I replaced the drive with a Seagate, and installed better case ventilation in the DVR. Whether it was a ventilation issue or one particular to WD drives, this appears to have fixed the problem.
I don't recommend the purple drives. I recommend getting enterprise drives for about 40% more cost. Purple drives are rated at 180TB write per year. Enterprise drives are rated over 500TB write per year and usually come with a 5 year warranty rather than a 3 year warranty. If you're using purple drives, you can support a max of 2 cameras per drive at 5MP per camera and stay within 180TB per year. With 4K cameras out now (8MP) for just over $140 each, a purple drive per camera will be the only way you can expect a purple drive to support a single camera - if it would last even then.
I am now out of pocket with junk on my hands!!

Red: Perfect - used as storage for 8+years in an external enclosure (Probox - god i miss these indestructable esata boxes and the old prices)
Blue: Perfect - used as a drop in for the Icy Box Dock. 1 Year. Solid & no real speed difference over e-sata (love e-sata)
Green: Perfect - as drop in again this is still solid, reliable and holds e-sata speed (not much in it but blue & red seem very marginally better)
Purple: Great/Perfect - they really know what they are doing. I tried this for a change. Good E-sata speed, very Reliable as to date. Well built as norm, nice drive.
At the moment I love n trust WD's work. Have not tried black but do not see the need with PC speeds non server. The rest are all excellent. Purple? I guess time ...several years will tell (or use in much security recording as designed...still awhile I would say). Green are fine, red n blue I feel more comfortable with, as too do I purple. A larger size may lead you to their proposed red or blue, and for a speed margin perhaps black (not needed for regular home PC). Nice to have options but better to have ones data still accessible. For now I don't look elsewhere, I just check price & needed size (I don't need NAS so only pure storage drives I get will be over 2T - this is the tec that does move on...& prices get better). Cheers WD... lifesaver.
Amazon only provide a 2 year warranty, however that starts from the date of original purchase and not the replacement date, so they won't help.
WD won't help either as it was supplied as an OEM component.
Very disappointed with the build quality and durability, won't be buying another WD product again.
Bought a couple of these for my desktop computers and they do as they should... and they're purple which would be great if I could see them.
I have changed the review rating some 9 months after receipt of the HDD. I discovered recently that the drive was not recording. When I contacted Amazon I was referred to Western Digital who checked and informed me that the drive warranty had expired some 3 years BEFORE I purchased it. I now await a refund from Amazon. The drive was supplied by MEDIALESS.
Very well packed which was a surprise from passed experiences
just have to see how long it lasts but very happy with it so far
FAILED just over 2 years old
Reallocated Sectors Count 131 in no time
failed read test element
on all 3 self tests
crashes pc when trying to read from disk
And to find out no warranty Out of Region on WDs website
2nd time trying to update my review amazon not updating it
The CCTV is running Blue Iris on Windows, and the PC is a Dell T20 with a Xeon E3-1226v3. It is fed by 3 HikVision 8MP cameras, recording 24/7.
The WD Purple is quiet and runs cool, and has no problems keeping up with three camera feeds, and several users reviewing old footage at the same time.
Found out the drive was a normal 1TB desktop drive so decided to upgrade with this surveillance always on one.
Plug n play.
Performance of this WD PURPLE is far and away better. And is designed for surveillance applications.
