How does WD Purple benefit a DVR?
WD Purple is perfect for your surveillance and CCTV solution as it is designed to withstand being always-on in high running temperatures, while reducing errors, pixilation and video interruptions. It ensures a much better capture of your CCTV footage. Errors, which can occur in wrong drives, can hinder not just the security archive, but the system itself and any users of the system.

How much can I store on this hard drive?
How much you are able to store on this hard drive is dependent on the parameters you set. As an average, you will be able to store up to 5 days, recording four cameras at 720p resolution, at 24 frames per second.

Hi, I am after a 1Tb HDD for a CCTV system, the current drive is 1 Tb WD and it keeps being lost by the system. I know CCTV systems are sensitive and from what I've read it needs to NOT sleep and I think a 5400 rpm, can you advise please.

Asked by: Lucky Luc
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
