"Good price for Seagate 1TB hard drive. Would be perfect for a CCTV DVR or for a"


cctv dont do well on normal hard drives as desktop drives are not meant to be running 24/7. That why there are certain hard drives made for them.

WD purple and Seagate Sky hawks.

I used a normal PC hard drive and it lasted about 2 months before dying.

How reliable are supplied by seagate? Will they be brand new? I've recently be made aware that the drives can be reset to not show hours used etc.?

The 2TB and 3TB Seagate models have an awful failure rate. Other capacities are fine. It's unlikely anyone would have reset the SMART, but it's possible.

Looking at the image on eBay these drives were made in 2015... seems a little strange, could be a stock image though ?
Ahh, the seagate Barracuda, the most unreliable drives ever made. I had 3 fail on me, I know plenty of people that have the same experience, there's a reason they are so cheap!
Good price, but I wonder what type of packaging they use to ship these reclaimed drives?

If they don't use proper hard drive packaging, it will probably arrive DOA or perhaps suffer from lower life span due to normal handling by courier/Royal Mail etc where it gets knocked about.

I recall many years ago, I bought a 3.5" OEM hard drive from (Ebuyer). They wrapped it in single walled corrugated cardboard and I heard it drop through my front door's letter flap and onto the floor....

Seriously, your drive was on the verge of dying anyway. 4 years and counting on the one I salvaged from a PC I upgraded and installed on a CCTV system. Same with my NAS, I was about to pay extra for a special NAS drive for my synology but decided to use a standard HDD I already had. Its been running 3 years now 24/7...

It's a 7200rpm drive so should be fine for home use

hdd.userbenchmark.com/Sea…849

The read/write speeds would support a few cameras recording 24/7. Purples are for CCTV systems with lots of cameras in a professional environment.

You're going to get hard drive failures whatever brand or colour of drive you use, I've had purples die in servers I manage so they're not invincible either. That's why you have arrays/pools setup to prevent data loss.

I wouldn't use these drives for anything other than CCTV though to be honest (where you know if you need the data from it pretty immediately. It would be too risky putting family photos or music albums on this as they are drives from 2011 and looks to be refurbs)

How do you know how old it was?

How do you know how old it was?


New drives die as well. Could be a number of factors from manufacturer defect to bad handling. Not saying the special drives are not worth it, though...

Seemed to be saying they (purple) are made for writes and not general server use which is eqaul of both read and writes sparodicly. Maybe thats why the purple broke...not suited for server use.

To be honest, I had WD Green in CCTV and it worked OK for over 5 years and still alive (despite rubbish power supply). So it is more a question of luck.

But would definitely recommend to get a specialised drive for CCTV or NVR.

I had 3 1080p cameras recording in highest quality (just to get the best video possible) which is possibly why mine didn't last as long as some others are saying.

Could be. But usually it is just a question of statistics. As any drive may fail, it is just that proper (specialised) drives, in "bigger population" generally survive for longer.

CCTV recording servers. I've had a handful of purples fail either during first installation or a few months in. Most failures of purples I've had have been between 13-24 months.

Quite easy. These drives don't come with a SATA cable, so you'll need to have one spare, or buy one online. It really depends on what case you have and power supply to assist you further. Some prebuilt computers have space for another drive.

I would recommend buying an external HDD 3.5" enclosure online too. That way you can pop the HDD in, connect it via USB to your current computer and copy the data using Windows copy and paste, or tools like Macrium Reflect to do a complete disk copy of your existing drive to it.

Hope this helps.

You'll definitely need an external enclosure then. These are desktop class drives at 3.5" which won't fit in any laptops that I know of. Laptops support 2.5" drives.

No problem. You'll need an external HDD caddy for your laptop for extra stroage. Make sure the key words are there, 3.5 inch (or 3.5") and USB3. By this point however, you're in the realms of external branded HDDs being possibly cheaper with more capacity.

What's more is a desktop harddrive will kill the battery life of a laptop, even if you could fit them in.

reds for backup and storage; purple for CCTV - constant writes. The drives and spec may be similar but they are configured for their specialist uses.
