Almost positive that there are no SMR drives in the 8TB and above.

FYI, ordered 4 drives last time. Got 3 whites with helium (80 EZAZ). One without helium (80EDAZ) and it ran noticeably hotter.

Likely NOT CMR? Meaning that these are SMR? Seems wrong info. Where have you seen it documented at WD 8tb are now shipping with SMR?

Great drives and they're CMR. I have four in my Synology DS1810+ and they're running great. Time to get one more and fill that 5th bay.

Similar boat, 3 EMAZ and 1 EFAX. All CMR, working great.

Do you still need to cover a pin in order to get windows to properly recognize the bare drive or do these drives "just work" without having to cut a trace or cover something with tape?

I've never needed to do any work with the pins on these ones, either in my older homegrown Windows server or in my newer Synology.

Wd 8tb is smr.
No, it is cmr. WD stopped at 6tb on what they called DMSMR.

Yes, if your power supply is providing 3.3v to pin 3 then one of the fixes is needed.

I ordered 2 of these a couple months ago at $139.99. Both were air-filled (EDAZ). Probably not a big deal—still CMR, they just run a bit hotter—but I wound up returning for a pair of 8TB Elements, which I got for about $123 each with a student discount straight from WD. Those ones were helium (EMAZ), and are running great.

I got (4) EDAZ non-helium "runs hot" drives from Best Buy when this was a deal a few days ago. Shucked all 4 into a small RAID 10 enclosure.. 4 of em' next to each other. But I've got adequate cooling across the drives so I'm not worried at all. Here's to hoping they don't die anytime soon.

EDIT: Ugh bought (1) more justttt in case they discontinue these things or something 🤣
