What is the date of manufacture of this drive please as you don’t mention if these are brand new and unopened in manufacturers original sealed anti-static packing? 6TB Seagate SkyHawk 3.5" Surveillance (CCTV) Hard Drive
Paul Jarvis2019-12-12 10:10:07
All of our hard drives come from our own warehouse stock. They are all brand new, unopened in the original manufacturers sealed anti static bag.

Does the rpm of a hard drive affect the performance of the cctv?
Paul Jarvis2019-10-24 09:53:52
Surveillance drives are geared for heavy continuous use not high performance and are suitable for most standalone systems. This should not affect the performance of a system with less than 24 cameras but this is dependant on other factors like camera resolution/frame rate etc.

could this be used as a normal hard drive in a pc
Paul Jarvis2019-07-23 08:08:08
These drives are optimised for surveillance use which is write intensive. We wouldn't recommend these drives for normal PC use as there may be noticeable performance issues.

What's the difference between a CCTV hard drive and a normal one?
Nathan2019-05-18 19:03:55
Key differences are that CCTV Hard drives are optimised for continuous sequential writing rather than random read/write and are designed to manage temperature and vibration better.
