Pro Video Security exclusively uses WD (Western Digital) Purple Security Grade Hard Drives inside all of its DVR and NVR security recorders. WD Purple Drives all come with a 3 year warranty and are built specifically for the rigorous and continuos DVR and NVR usage needs. Even when a DVR or NVR is not actually recording video, the hard drive is being used and is constantly moving. These security grade hard drives are engineered for this constant motion and movement and provide years of reliable service for your video security system.
Be careful when purchasing DVR and NVR recorders with hard drives that do not specify the make and model of the drive. Usually companies brag about Security Grade Hard Drives. So if there is not mention of that, it probably means no security grade drive.
Western Digital and Seagate both produce excellent hard drives. You will find experts choosing one over the other. Our experience with Western Digital has been great in terms of drive failure as well as customer service. The drives rarely fail and if they do, the replacement drive is easy.
