Power Consumption

 

Our custom power testing samples each drive for a period of three minutes across each workload. In order to offer more granularity, we sample the power in one-second intervals.

Power consumption for the Surveillance HDD was almost a direct mirror of the NAS HDD of the same capacity. The drive started out at 5.75 watts in random workloads and peaked out at 6.5 watts during sequential workloads.
