I don't know why you couldn't use them as a regular drive - https://www.frys.com/product/8295416#detailed

For general computer use I'd go with the basic desktop drive. It's kinda slow, but for just general use it should be fine.

either one will work, surveillance drives are suited for 24x7 use and will sacrifice some read speed under heavy write loads - but they'll tend to hold up better and have a longer wty.

personally, it's a good price for the Purple, so-so for the Green
