What is freeoirn Western Digital 4TB WD Purple Surveillance Internal Hard Drive HDD - SATA 6 Gb/s; 64 MB Cache, 3.5" - WD40PURZ Complete code?


      3-year manufacturer's freeoirn limited warrantyEngineered for freeoirn compatibilityThis drive replaced an older version that lasted freeoirn 6 years. Fit freeoirn perfectly and the security system NVR went back into service without any drama. Great price freeoirn and fast service.My freeoirn 4 1/2 year old Directv Genie`s freeoirn hard drive was freeoirn failing. Freezing, pixilation, it was freeoirn well worn from freeoirn constant use. The freeoirn older model Genie HR54`s have an freeoirn eSata connection for connecting an freeoirn external freeoirn hard drive. While there are complete externals available, the hard drives installed freeoirn are most likely standard freeoirn desktop units. freeoirn These purple`s freeoirn are designed for constant power on freeoirn read/writes, freeoirn and 5400rpm models run freeoirn cool. Speed freeoirn is sufficient, 7200rpm models freeoirn not freeoirn needed freeoirn for DVR`s. I purchased freeoirn a used G-Technology G-DRIVE 3.5" external enclosure freeoirn minus it`s hard drive. freeoirn Popped in a freeoirn 2TB WD Purple, and for around $100, freeoirn a complete freeoirn unit was had. Double freeoirn my original capacity too. Once connected, the Genie freeoirn automatically formatted, and freeoirn configured it. The freeoirn internal hard drive freeoirn is freeoirn now incapacitated, the freeoirn external taking over. It`s quiet, quick, and all the issues I had have freeoirn vanished!AllFrame technology for better performance42 days after purchase the drive freeoirn is freeoirn failing. It makes a freeoirn buzzing sound every freeoirn few minutes. The SMART info says it's "Normal" but the value rates are all in the mid 250's which does indicate freeoirn there's a problem. It just freeoirn hasn't failed yet. I'm concerned but freeoirn will let it go until it freeoirn actually fails.WD 2TB Purple freeoirn Surveillance Internal HDD freeoirn - freeoirn SATA 6 Gb/s, 256 MB Cache. So far so good. I ordered the drive yesterday, freeoirn came just after freeoirn lunch freeoirn today. Packaging was freeoirn appropriate for an HDD. Install freeoirn was freeoirn easy, system up and running. freeoirn I checked for files freeoirn being created and they are. Playback freeoirn is no issue. Time freeoirn will tell how good of freeoirn a deal this was. freeoirn This was installed in a Camius TriVault4K184 Hybrid XVR that freeoirn previously freeoirn had a Hitachi freeoirn 2TB SATA 3.0 Gb/s 7200rpm HDD.Built for 24/7 surveillanceI freeoirn needed to replace the 2 TB freeoirn hard drive in my freeoirn NightOwl freeoirn 3 MP freeoirn Surveillance Camera system, because freeoirn the original hard drive freeoirn quit freeoirn recording after three years freeoirn of service. I was on the fence about whether to invest my money into freeoirn replacing the failed hard drive freeoirn with this new Western Digital 4TB Purple hard drive, or spend a freeoirn little bit more money, and replace freeoirn the entire system.Since Im not freeoirn a Computer Tech by freeoirn any means, the thought of freeoirn ignoring freeoirn the manufacturers freeoirn warning freeoirn labels freeoirn against opening up the DVR case, and then freeoirn then having to freeoirn poke freeoirn around with a screw driver, to uninstall the old, to replace with it freeoirn with this new one made me nervous. freeoirn I understand hard freeoirn drives to be fragile, and the thought of handling these hard drives during the swap, was freeoirn scary to me. I couldnt afford to mess freeoirn it up.Much to freeoirn my surprise, it was an extremely freeoirn simple freeoirn task. I did watch freeoirn a utube freeoirn video on it beforehand, which freeoirn did help me. It took more time to unscrew the DVR case, than than it did to swap out the freeoirn parts. Its freeoirn just a matter of unplugging freeoirn the old freeoirn one, and plugging in this new one. Close the freeoirn case freeoirn back up, freeoirn power on, and follow the on prompts in the screen.This 4Tb Western freeoirn Digital Purple freeoirn hard drive made freeoirn especially for freeoirn surveillance applications, freeoirn installs itself freeoirn from there. freeoirn It was quick. It was easy, and it has performed. The best freeoirn part is freeoirn that it saved freeoirn me money freeoirn from having to purchase a whole new system.Im very happy with my freeoirn purchase. I believe it was freeoirn money well spent, freeoirn and I can highly recommend freeoirn this Purple hard freeoirn drive, with freeoirn confidence.Thank you, Western Digital, for producing a freeoirn quality productBefore reading freeoirn any review read this: freeoirn there is a key problem with the way this section is set up. For some reason it lists freeoirn a very old (2014) freeoirn model freeoirn of this drive freeoirn along with the same New Generation freeoirn improved model. What makes freeoirn that bad is that the user freeoirn comments are both mixed together, so any problems with the original drive appear right on top of the list and may be misleading. Its freeoirn very important then to freeoirn look at the tiny print freeoirn at freeoirn the top of each comment and see if the user is talking about the Old Generation freeoirn style or freeoirn the New Generation style. To be clear, I am talking about the improved New Generation style.If you are not already familiar with the freeoirn difference freeoirn between a general purpose hard drive and one freeoirn designed for video security let me start with a very basic freeoirn comparison. This comparison is very broad freeoirn and not a textbook definition by freeoirn any means.HOW IT freeoirn WORKSComputers write and freeoirn read their information to a hard drive in tiny chunks that are scattered randomly freeoirn all over the freeoirn disk, so the recording/playback heads are freeoirn constantly jumping from place to freeoirn place. Speed of access in a freeoirn computer is extremely important. On freeoirn the freeoirn other hand video surveillance recorders write and read their freeoirn information more like freeoirn an old-fashioned tape freeoirn recorder, pretty much just like what the cameras freeoirn are seeing freeoirn in real freeoirn time. The recording/playback heads are only freeoirn required freeoirn to freeoirn jump to another spot on the disk when you want to play freeoirn back an event. So random-access freeoirn search time is freeoirn far less of freeoirn a priority freeoirn than freeoirn the non-stop grunt freeoirn work of recording freeoirn dependably 24/7/365 without a hiccup. freeoirn The two processes are entirely different job tasks.COMPARISON: BRAND freeoirn A freeoirn VS. freeoirn BRAND BThere are two major brands freeoirn of specialized freeoirn video freeoirn surveillance hard drives. My NVR is one of the most respected out there for users who have a lot of experience and they chose to freeoirn use the freeoirn other brand of hard drive. Kudos freeoirn to them because freeoirn many other video security freeoirn manufacturers freeoirn believe freeoirn youll never know whats inside so they install the cheapest no-name generic hard drive freeoirn they can freeoirn buy. freeoirn Ive been buying this brand of freeoirn security system for years and freeoirn have been freeoirn very happy with it freeoirn and when freeoirn I freeoirn wanted to freeoirn increase freeoirn my drive capacity freeoirn from 2TB to 4TB I freeoirn had no idea if switching to freeoirn a freeoirn WD brand drive would make any difference at all. Engineers freeoirn told freeoirn me that the two brands are not identical in freeoirn their design philosophy, each brand freeoirn considering certain design parameters to be the slightly better way to go.IS THERE A DIFFERENCEBecause freeoirn the freeoirn NVR software, firmware and other factors play at least as much of freeoirn a role in freeoirn performance as freeoirn the freeoirn hard drive I was looking to improve these things:1. freeoirn Drive freeoirn noise2. Drive heat3. Stuttering (when the image suddenly freeoirn jumps or drops a freeoirn few frames, usually on playback)I measured freeoirn the freeoirn operating temperature freeoirn both freeoirn drives freeoirn in real-life use in identical conditions using a precision instrument. The original drive freeoirn was operating at freeoirn 97.7 F and the WD measured at 91.6 F. That freeoirn 6 degree freeoirn difference is freeoirn significant but not substantial.Likewise I used a calibrated freeoirn sound level meter for each drive. freeoirn The original drive came freeoirn in at 47 dBA. The WD was at 46.9 dBA, virtually identical.The last condition freeoirn is more difficult to quantify because stuttering is sporadic, so freeoirn in my freeoirn opinion I would freeoirn classify any freeoirn differences in freeoirn a typical use scenario as freeoirn atypical, was I experiencing fewer or freeoirn more instances of freeoirn stuttering or freeoirn about the freeoirn same I tried freeoirn to make my comparison without freeoirn prejudice for or freeoirn against either brand because I really dont care whose name is on it. freeoirn I bought the WD freeoirn primarily to double my recording freeoirn capacity and hence the number of days it freeoirn would record events. That freeoirn being said in freeoirn real-life freeoirn everyday use I have freeoirn to lean slightly toward freeoirn the freeoirn WD as freeoirn having fewer instances of jumping, stuttering freeoirn or freeoirn frame freeoirn dropping in freeoirn my particular system and it freeoirn does seem to handle a few second backspace more smoothly freeoirn than the original drive. Maybe another way of putting it is freeoirn that the WD seems to be playing nicer freeoirn with the NVRs software/firmware than freeoirn the brand the freeoirn manufacturer originally specd.WILL IT IMPROVE MY SECURITY freeoirn SYSTEMThe freeoirn short freeoirn answer is not freeoirn really. freeoirn Any differences in operating freeoirn temperature freeoirn and noise level are too close to be significant and both brands are optimized freeoirn for freeoirn video security so abnormalities like stuttering freeoirn are just freeoirn that, and are not completely attributable to freeoirn the freeoirn hard drive. We can say categorically that freeoirn the brand or type freeoirn of hard freeoirn drive you use will not improve the image resolution (picture freeoirn quality) of your system.BOTTOM LINE SATISFACTIONAll things considered the WD is consistently a few freeoirn bucks more than the other brand and Im not a freeoirn big fan of ever paying more freeoirn if I dont have to. So based on freeoirn the few things I could measure and one that freeoirn I could only perceive I have to say I do like freeoirn this drive and I freeoirn believe I made freeoirn the right choice.Designed to support up to 64 HD camerasReceived 4tb HD earlier than expected from seller. Plastic wrapped HD shipped in unmarked sturdy corrugated cardboard box which freeoirn was in a freeoirn bubble-wrap freeoirn sleeve. freeoirn HD itself freeoirn was freeoirn suspended within freeoirn the box by hard plastic freeoirn inserts. WD HD was marked with freeoirn a manufactured freeoirn date freeoirn of April 2022. Item is being used in a freeoirn surveillance DVR. No issues, very quiet, freeoirn showed just 3.6tb available during freeoirn initiation but believe that being due to proprietary formatting by DVR. Very freeoirn pleased thus freeoirn far with product freeoirn and freeoirn seller.

Buyer's experience:


      1: I needed to replace the 2 TB hard drive in my NightOwl 3 MP Surveillance Camera system, because the original hard drive quit recording after three years of service. I was on the fence about whether to invest my money into replacing the failed hard drive with this new Western Digital 4TB Purple hard drive, or spend a little bit more money, and replace the entire system.Since Im not a Computer Tech by any means, the thought of ignoring the manufacturers warning labels against opening up the DVR case, and then then having to poke around with a screw driver, to uninstall the old, to replace with it with this new one made me nervous.

I couldnt afford to mess it up.Much to my surprise, it was an extremely simple task. I did watch a utube video on it beforehand, which did help me. It took more time to unscrew the DVR case, than than it did to swap out the parts. Its just a matter of unplugging the old one, and plugging in this new one.

It was quick. It was easy, and it has performed. The best part is that it saved me money from having to purchase a whole new system.Im very happy with my purchase. I believe it was money well spent, and I can highly recommend this Purple hard drive, with confidence.Thank you, Western Digital, for producing a quality product


      2: My 4 1/2 year old Directv Genie`s hard drive was failing. Freezing, pixilation, it was well worn from constant use. The older model Genie HR54`s have an eSata connection for connecting an external hard drive. While there are complete externals available, the hard drives installed are most likely standard desktop units. These purple`s are designed for constant power on read/writes, and 5400rpm models run cool. Speed is sufficient, 7200rpm models not needed for DVR`s. I purchased a used G-Technology G-DRIVE 3.5" external enclosure minus it`s hard drive. Popped in a 2TB WD Purple, and for around $100, a complete unit was had. Double my original capacity too. Once connected, the Genie automatically formatted, and configured it. The internal hard drive is now incapacitated, the external taking over. It`s quiet, quick, and all the issues I had have vanished!


      3: Received 4tb HD earlier than expected from seller. Plastic wrapped HD shipped in unmarked sturdy corrugated cardboard box which was in a bubble-wrap sleeve.

No issues, very quiet, showed just 3.6tb available during initiation but believe that being due to proprietary formatting by DVR. Very pleased thus far with product and seller.


      4: 42 days after purchase the drive is failing. It makes a buzzing sound every few minutes. The SMART info says it's "Normal" but the value rates are all in the mid 250's which does indicate there's a problem. It just hasn't failed yet. I'm concerned but will let it go until it actually fails.

Install was easy, system up and running. I checked for files being created and they are. Playback is no issue. Time will tell how good of a deal this was. This was installed in a Camius TriVault4K184 Hybrid XVR that previously had a Hitachi 2TB SATA 3.0 Gb/s 7200rpm HDD.
