    I recommended WD HDDs for years and I was wrong. I really don't know enough about SSDs to make recommendations based on anything but my experiences with the SSDs I've used. I've seen some reports of Samsung EVOs failing in DVRs recently. I use them and have had no problems with them. I also use a couple of Crucial SSDs and I have had no problems with them. Here's a link to a 2TB Crucial that's been running in one of my HRs for at least a year without issues: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YD5F561/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I was looking for more 6TB . Looking to record a lot of 4K sports.

    The original one I got from Amazon was a good price $160 but it died after 3 days .

    So I don't mind a separate SSD / enclosure but above 4TB price is high at the moment .

    But thank you all for your inputs.
