This is a hard drive for putting into DVRs and NVRs to record CCTV footage.

It's not the cheapest it's ever been, but at this moment in time I think it's better bang for your buck compared to the 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB drives.

i DONT THINK THERE'S anything to stop you using this just like any other HDD ... but I have no idea how it would perform
from WD frums "The drive will only use the streaming ATA commands if it receives them from the host. Desktop computers should not natively issue these types of commands so the drive should work like a normal hard drive. Some differences are that since the drive is optimized for contiguous data streams, the random read/write may not be as fast as a regular desktop drive. Also, the drive is designed for constant 24/7 operation so it will not go into a power saving mode on its own.
If you were feeling adventurous you could try flashing the firmware from a blue/green/red/black/gold for LOLs and use in a mission critical operation
