Hands-on research

Product Research



Overview: The ClearView HD3TB is an accessory 3 TB surveillance-class hard drive that can be installed in a ClearView DVR (digital video recorder) or NVR (network video recorder) for additional storage. The hard drive is Model WD30PURX made by Western Digital (WD). This WD Purple series hard drive is built for 24/7 always-on surveillance in high-definition surveillance systems that use up to 64 HD cameras.
