  • Product image may represent a design model.
  • Definition of capacity: One terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes, but storage capacity actually available may vary depending on operating environment and formatting.  Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.
  • A mebibyte (MiB) means 1 048 576 bytes.
  • MTTF / MTBF (Mean Time to Failure / Mean Time Between Failures) of the HDDs during its life time is one million hours and AFR(Annualized Failure Rate) is 0.88%. This assumes power-on hours are 24 x 7 in normal surveillance usage (8760 h/year power on hours, up to 180TB/year total data transfers, and average HDA surface temperature:40°C or less).  Use at case HDA surface temperature above 40°C may degrade product reliability and reduce warranty period.
  • Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
  • "3.5-inch" mean the form factor of HDDs. They do not indicate drive's physical size.
  • Workload is a measure of the data throughput of the year, and it is defined as the amount of data written, read or verified by commands from the host system.
  • Number of surveillance cameras support capability is defined by performance simulation with High Definition cameras at 4Mbit/s rate. Actual results may vary based on various factors, including the types of cameras installed, the system’s hardware and software capabilities, and the video compression technology used, as well as system variables such as resolution, frames per second, and other settings.
