The interface is 6gb/s. Just look at benchmarks for what you need. Larger platter sizes allow you to have a lower rpm. I prefer 5400rpm vs 7200rpm, quite/less power. If I need over 180MBps speed, I'll put the data on a SSD. I use AMD storeMI for my gaming drive mixed with a NVME drive and couldn't be happier.

These are SMR correct? I read that Seagate changed their 5400 rpm line to SMR early last year.

Gigabits aren't Gigabytes. Gb/s vs GB/s. SATA is 6Gb, and NVME gen 4 x4 is about 8GB/s, both interfaces won't be able to reach those speeds though because of overhead.

I think so, bummer.

The general consensus online:

xxxxxxDM00x = SMR
xxxxxxDM000x = PMR
That would indicate this is SMR.

I bought a 2Tb barracuda from Newegg last month for $79 and received a dead HD. Returned it for a replacement but they were out of stock and only issued me a refund when the barracudas are now over $100. I'd say just be careful with their customer service.

Nice! Thanks for the post. In for one.

For those complaining its an SMR drive, these aren't THAT slow and if you are concerned about speed you should be buying solid state anyway.

I glad these things provide TBs for dirt cheep.

If you want another year of warranty get the IronWolf version for $50 more.

Sounds like what almost every business would do in that situation.
