FYI, these are made in Thailand instead of Made in China... There are threads referring to the ones made in Thailand to have lower failure rate when compared to Made in China. Unforutnatelly, the warranty of these are unlike the past...

from what i can tell, yes still SMR, still useful depending on usage, good for WORM, not good for constant random write usage unless you are using it in tiered storage

lots of documentation on how it behaves on the unraid forums so its good if your usage matches the way it behaves
