    Drives for Blue Iris

    I purchased a WD Purple drive when I was initially building my system. I now see some deals on the WD Gold Drives that appear to have higher mean time failure lifes, are CMR drives and seem to be able to handle the annual write volume. Any reason to not look at WD Gold drives? Some of the...

    It's a pretty typical wall wart device. You just need 2A @ 12V DC so you could use an alternative transformer for the larger unit.
