could i bother you for your opinion on the WDpurple surveillance disk compared to WDplus 

in my all surveillance system

 


I've never owned a purple drive, so I have no direct experience.   I can only go by the datasheet.

 

The WD4NPURX is spec'd at 150 MB/s, and has a cache of 64 MB.  Power is spec'd at 4.8 watts. amd noise is about 25 dba. WD specs its workload at 180 TB/year.

 

The WD40EFRX is spec'd at 175 MB/s, and has a cache size of 128 MB.  Power is spec'd at 4.8 watts, and noise is also about 25 dba.  WD specs its workload at 180 TB/year.

 

Based on specs alone, the WD40EFRX is a somewhat faster, and has twice the cache.  Other specs are about the same.  Price is also similar (Amazon US has the WD40EFRX for a bit less).

 

I'd go with the WD40EFRX myself, as 

  1. it appears to offer a bit more performance
  2. it has a long track record here (many folks have used it in their ReadyNAS with success).

Hello again

So , New disks: WD plus. The admin page loads very snappy, at least half time.

Video smoother.
I am very happy with the upgrade, thank you for all your tips.

regards

Magnus
