With WD launching their "Purple" surveillance drive, I knew in the back of my mind it wouldn't take Seagate long to bring their solution to market. Now, about a month later, we have the Seagate Surveillance 4TB HDD in our hands.
Surveillance hard drives stem from the enterprise market, where consumers need 24/7 reliability and high performance capabilities from their storage solutions. With this in mind, I don't think it's too far off to say the Seagate Surveillance we have here is a beefed up NAS drive. This Surveillance drive offers the same 4TB capacity, along with 64MB of multi-segmented cache and a 5900RPM spindle speed.
Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The Seagate Surveillance is available in 3TB and 4TB capacities, with both units recommended for one- to 16-bay enclosures. Seagate says the Surveillance can handle up to 32 cameras with a max-sustained data rate of 180 MB/s, and further down, we find typical power consumption listed at 8 watts.
The Seagate Surveillance in the 4TB capacity carries an MSRP of $189.99 with a three-year warranty.
