Introduced on the market at the end of November 2019, the 14 TB Western Digital Purple HDD is optimized for surveillance tasks with design traits that ensure long-term reliability while in use 24/7. With a list price of US$319.99 and a mid-2021 peak of almost US$600, the WD140PURZ model retails now at US$279.99.

The Western Digital Purple mechanical HDD lineup is currently available on Amazon with sizes from 1 TB to 14 TB, all being built for 24/7 surveillance tasks and covered with a 3-year manufacturer's limited warranty. The WD140PURZ model, which is the largest one mentioned above, is now at the lowest price in 30 days thanks to a rather small discount of 13%. Although its previous list price mentioned on Amazon now is US$319.99, this mechanical hard drive topped at US$599.99 back in the summer of 2021. The discounted price of US$279.99 is quite a catch, considering that the 10 TB model (WD102PURZ) has a list price of US$299.99 and is currently down to US$250 with the help of a 17% discount. 

The 14 TB WD140PURZ hard drive features the AllFrame 4KTM Technology that, according to Western Digital, reduces frame loss, improves video playback, and allows the drive to work properly even in high-temperature, always-on surveillance systems. Since it features 128 MB of cache memory, a rotational speed of 7200 RPM, and uses the SATA 6 Gbps interface, this hard drive can be successfully employed for data storage in regular desktop computers or external enclosures as well.

The Western Digital Purple lineup is both popular (7,732 ratings and 280 answered questions) and highly rated on Amazon. The global rating score currently sits at 4.6/5, with 81% 5/5 and 11% 4/5 user reviews. Those looking for even more storage can choose to go with the Western Digital Purple Pro lineup, which pushes the size threshold higher with 18 TB and 22 TB options.
