Contest #15 - Western Digital AV-GP Hard Drives (2x500gb)

Dec 20 2010





2 x Western Digital AV-GP 500GB Hard DrivesWD Hard Drives

Courtesy of our friends at HD-Stor and Western Digital, we have up for grabs 2 x 500GB hard drives from Western Digital, their AV-GP line of optimized devices.

If this sounds familiar, it's because Josh recently looked into the drives and how they performed with his 10-tuner system recording!

The AV-GP line of Western Digital hard drives is mainly geared towards digital surveillance systems, but once you look at what they do you see they are a perfect match for DVR solutions.  Since they are based off of the WD Green Power hard drives they are low power, low heat and low RPM (think noise), which is great for a DVR and longevity.
