Product information
This 1 TB WD Purple Surveillance Storage Internal Hard Drive is built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition surveillance security systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras.

The smart choice for surveillance

WD Purple Surveillance Storage offers exclusive AllFrame technology that brings you premium reliability and peace-of-mind when installing your home or small-to-medium business security system.

Exclusive firmware upgrades work with ATA streaming to reduce error pixilation and video interruptions that occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems. So you can enjoy the peace-of-mind you can only get from a surveillance-class hard drive.

Surveillance storage for peace-of-mind

Whether you're protecting your personal assets and loved ones or monitoring the business you worked hard to build, you can rely on surveillance-class storage - built by one of the largest hard drive manufacturers in the world.

This WD Purple Hard Drive is designed for high-temperature, always-on, surveillance security systems to ensure reliability and quality video playback when you need it most.

Lower power consumption

Low power consumption is crucial in high-temperature always-on surveillance environments. With exclusive IntelliSeek technology, the WD Surveillance Hard Drive calculates 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 like this one, you worry less while enjoying the benefits over a longer period of time.

Optimized performance for up to 32 HD cameras

This WD Internal Hard Drive is optimized to support up to an impressive 32 high-definition surveillance cameras, giving you the flexibility to upgrade and expand your security system in the future, if you so wish.

Desktop drives vs. surveillance-class storage

WD's Purple Surveillance Storagehas 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 only short intervals and are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.

The WD advantage

The WD Purple Surveillance Storage system has been put through what's called Functional Integrity Testing. It has been through around 600,000 hours of testing, to ensure its reliability and consistency.

Consider the WD Purple Surveillance Storage Internal Hard Drive with a 1 TB capacity to store all of your essential surveillance tapes.

Whitchurch, Shropshihre GB Retired
Reasonably priced. With its special design for always-on applications it helped me to repair a CCTV DVR at fraction of the cost of a new unit. Easily installed and formatted.
