Tried to find a thread that discusses this but was unable to really find an answer. If someone knows of a thread already I'd be grateful.

If not, here's the skinny.

I picked up a Security DVR that didn't come with a hard drive and it states that I need a DVR rated hard disk.

This sounds a little fishy to me as its the first time I have come across this. Reinforcing my feelings are the suspicious lack of any information regarding this subject in google as well as here on AVSForums.

I am betting that someone here knows the answer.

Is a 7200 rpm 16MB+ cache really not adequate for a DVR?

If not what makes a "DVR Rated" hard disk different?

The particulars - its a zmodo BRN-DD-SBN8 (DVR-H9108V that I picked up on woot a week or so ago. I thought I had a spare drive around the house, but it was an old IDE drive and I need a SATA drive.

My karma ran over my dogma.
