These drives can be shucked: https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoar...0_shucked/

Looks like 8TB Barracuda Compute drives. I bought one, why not. I have 5x 8TB WD Reds from previous EasyShucc sales so it's time to compare.

Can you open CrystalDiskInfo and tell us what model HDD is inside the drive. I want to know if this is SMR or PMR before I buy it. I bought Seagate Expansion 8TB in the spring of 2018 and it had ST8000DM004 which is definitely SMR, I don't want to have an SMR drive

I think you mean CMR as PMR can be a little too ambiguous in this context. Usually the heated debate in this HDD threads is CMR v SMR. I agree that for NAS applications one may prefer a CMR over an SMR HDD. For many other storage applications (read: most consumers, really) SMR is just fine and yields a better cost v capacity figure.

Just got mine yesterday and finally unpacked it. CrystalDiskMark says it's a ST8000DM004-2CX188, looks like SMR.
