There are several requirements of hard disk drive (HDD)
1. The disk had better be the one used for surveillance, not for computer use.
Here is the reason.
Please don't install a desktop hard drive into DVR NVR.
2. The type should be SATA. SATA2(3GB/s) or SATA3（6GB/s）is recommended. If you connect a USB stick or drive to the USB port of DVR, DVR can back up video from internal hard disk drive to USB stick, but can‘t record to USB stick directly.
3. We recommend 5400 RPM.
4. size is 3.5”.
5. The brand can be West Digital or Seagate.
6. The capacity should be less than or equal to the recorder‘s maximum capacity.
Here are some models we recommend. But please notice it is just an advice.
