all Seagates can be shucked, you may get an 8TB Archive drive SMR or a Barracuda Pro Enterprise HDD.

Any way to check before buying or to get better chances of getting Enterprise drive

Online? no way to know. The SMR drive is so bad I would avoid these things like the plague. The people mentioning Barracudas are few and far between compared to those mentioning getting SMR or DOA drives.

Thanks OP. This item also has free shipping.

You should consider adding "@ Newegg FS" to the end of the title of your post.

Scary bad reviews of this drive. I wouldn't trust my data to it. Even if you're mirroring, with such a short warranty, do you really want to risk it?

The amazon reviews for the same product are not nearly as bad.

I personally had this drive die and had to warranty it. They sent me a different type back.
