BH Photo Video [bhphotovideo.com] has 4TB WD Red SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS Hard Drive (WDBAVV0040HNC-WRSN) on sale for $89.99. Shipping is free.

Good for those who do not want to spend $150+ on 6TB or larger size NAS drives. CMR technology and is being renamed "WD Red Plus" to distinguish it from the current "WD Red" product, which uses SMR technology.

Similar price at Newegg [newegg.com].

This is also $5 cheaper than the previous FP deal of $94.99.

That's not the same drive. Generally SMR < CMR for the purpose you're buying this drive.

I think the Red are SMR and the Red Plus are CMR.
It matters more for data being frequently written than it does for data at rest, so yes. For a very short explanation of the differences, see here: https://blag.nullteilerfrei.de/20...-a-hdd-mr/

Shingled? How to tell?
The listing text above explains it pretty well and should be accurate.

Does any of this CMR SMR matter for a single unit in a desktop?

Newegg has 4TB WD RED for $79.99, but it's advertised as SMR. May be different part number?

Edit: WD40EFAX is SMR. WD40EFRX is not. Source: https://www.extremetech.com/compu...-customers

WD site had better prices yesterday than today. I saw red pro 6tb for $135 yesterday and didn't pull the trigger. Today it changed to $160 as example.

Knowing the Plus vs. Pro mainly deals with 5400 RPM vs 7200 RPM, is there that much of a difference between the two if I am mainly going to be using for PLEX?
