will this work in a sannce cctv monitee

Is this a suitable hard drive for a Compaq desk top? Current HD ST350041 3AS

Asked by: RJB1960
This is a standard 3.5 inch 7200 RPM SATA drive, and should be suitable for use in most home computers, however on a branded unit like a Compaq it may be worth checking with the manufacturer with regard to compatibility.
