Equivalent in what way?
The Exos X16 has better on specs (on paper) than either of those consumer grade WD red drives for lifetime and error rate.

Exos is comparable to WD pro. Dye to the 5 year warranty

Generally speaking, HDDs suck for anything that you actually want to do other than A/V playback. If you are used to SSD speeds, then as stated, "Are these drives good...", I'd say no. Additionally, 14TB is A LOT of games and whatever else. I'd recommend spending $200 on an SSD and loading your most often played games on that. Loading screens go from being 60+ seconds to about 8 seconds. That doesn't sound like much until you're sitting there waiting 60+ seconds every time a new segment of the game loads.
Additionally, in my professional opinion, HDDs are still more likely to crash/fail than SSDs. If you have terabytes of data on a single drive and it crashes... that's a bad day for you!

TL;DR "Not necessarily." Can you? "Probably." But long term functionality may suffer since it's not likely designed for the constant Write operations suggested/required for NVRs.

Over the past decade'ish, HDD manufacturers have been customizing the firmware in the drives to better accommodate a growing awareness of their good points and bad points in specific use-cases. The days of a "one size fits all" is long gone. In this case, the "Green" drives may be fine for general purpose but not ideal for the needs of an NVR.
All the remaining HDD OEMs have application-specific drives. I could go into much greater detail, but I'll leave it up to you to dig a little deeper. Go out to Seagate's or Western Digital's website. You'll see the various classes of drives listed.
Western Digital uses color codes. Seagate uses names like the traditional "Barracuda", "Ironwolf", etc.

It expired. I got 1. $200 for an 14tb enterprise drive. While posters here thinks of new ways to complain, people that saw the deal bought it by the bundle. It is very rare in this age to see $200 for an 14tb enterprise drive especially not on a holiday sale.

Just be prepared for the possibility of receiving damaged drives. NewEgg does crappy packing. I won't buy drives from them.
They're regular drives, just have some firmware optimization for big arrays and better resiliency against vibrations from adjacent drives. I have seven of the X10 in my system, and they're just regular SATA and power.
Yep. Consumer SATA drives are normally in the high 20's dB for noise. This drive is 32dB to 34dB. Remember decibels are logarithmic so this isn't as small a difference as it seems.

Newegg itself is listing it as a five year warranty despite being OEM, which is the standard warranty on these. Is that not correct?

Either NewEgg is wrong, or they are the ones providing the warranty. According to Seagate, "If your product was sold to an authorized distributor, reseller, or retailer, they are the best resources to obtain warranty replacement." NewEgg is listed as one of their authorized retailers.

The wording is interesting. It states that the sellers are "the best resources," but not the only resources. I wonder if that means that Seagate might also honor the warranty.

NewEgg's generic statement isn't very helpful. Basically, they say to contact the manufacturer, but says nothing about OEM devices.

Can this be installed like any regular drive in my PC, or is this only for enterprise setups, e.g. in a rack?

Is this overkill for a PC? I have 30+ TB of video data that needs editing and converting to HEVC so I need a fast reliable hard drive. They're currently stored on 5400rpm external drives which are very slow for editing. The internal 1TB SSD is always full so I need a hard drive and I'm hoping this would be good

Enterprise drives can be installed in a PC if you wish. They just might be noisier and give off more heat.
