This is what WD used to call a "green" drive. They've merged the green drives into the blue group. Any drive which a model number ending in "Z" is a former green drive. This article is a tad old but still seems relevant:

Anyway...if you want a surveillance drive, maybe spring an extra $14 for the purple version.

Yes, what ahallslickdeal said. For NVR systems, best to go with a Purple, or a Seagate Skyhawk drive. They are meant for 24/7 video recording. I believe they may have a higher duty cycle as well.

If you want to just store some large data such as family vacation photos and videos where speed isn't much of an importance, this would work fine. But always back up. If you have a single point of failure, you are gambling.

Good advice. I might add. For your back up unit..store it at a family or friends house, that way in case of fire, theft or other event you still have your important irreplacable files. also for the unit you keep at home...you might want to invest in a fireproof safe

I read those comment that these drivers are OEM, and WD doesn't have the warranty on OEM drives.
