Nvr drive is for camera capture, these are for consumer Nas devices or in a PC for secondary storage. Different use cases. Nvr drives are built to write like 99% of the time.

It would work but you're better off getting a WD Purple Drive. Their Red drives are more for an NAS or Server that's constantly reading through data. For cameras there's more writing than reading so the Purple drives should last longer.

Speed difference only shows up after the drive gets about 70-80% full or when you write that much data and then have to write more. Once you hit this limit - everything seems like it scratches to a haunt. Only use these drives if you are not writing a lot or using them as backup drives. Otherwise they are good.
Red drives are completely different. Made to run 24/7. You won't find a red drive for $15/tb
Cmr good
Smr bad

CMR is better than SMR, but as a normal Win10 user, the difference is minor/negligible. I have a SMR 6tb, cannot tell it is different from other drives I used.

there's also the fact that there are production issues which are kicking prices up, unfortunately.
not sure when that'll be over.
Been waiting for 6 months and the prices have been pretty stagnant unfortuantely
