If I order a DVR with say a 3TB hard drive, what type drive will it come with?  Make, model, RPM, etc.?  If I provide my own drive are there any requirements for the drive?

We use Surveillance Series drives only. They are manufactured by Seagate. Western Digital also makes a similar series if you wish to install it yourself.

I’m comfortable installing them myself and typically use the Seagate SV35 models if that is a good choice.

That’s the HDD that we recommend. We’ve tested up to the 3 TB size.
