Like the Red series before it, the new Purple series brings peace of mind when configuring a specific application system. Right out of the box, end users know that the drives work in the application and have the features needed to make a successful project. Also like the NAS market, the surveillance market should grow considerably over the next decade. Given what is on the line when surveillance comes into play, it's nice to see Western Digital taking the guess work out of choosing a drive for this market.
Looking over the market for other products used in surveillance applications, the Purple series fairs well with pricing. The model we tested today, the 4TB Purple, is less than $190 at Newegg but is currently out of stock. The 3TB model at $139.99 matches the price of the WD AV-GP, the company's previous surveillance HDD.
With the projected growth of this market and the need for easier to configure systems, Western Digital has provided a necessary tool for making a complicated task easier.
