Hard drives are not really the first thing that comes to our minds when we are thinking about our CCTV setup. That honor goes to the camera. Whether you plan to record just motion detection clips or 24/7 round the clock, the safety of your recordings comes down to one thing: the hard drives you choose for your NVR (Network Video Recorder).
Hard drive is the weakest link in your CCTV setup. Because it is the only mechanical device in the whole system. Since hard drives do not last forever and will fail at some point, it is very important to choose the best hard drive for your recorder.
