This is a CMR drive, as opposed to SMR. To put it succinctly, SMR drives should be avoided for the daily driver and storage arrays (if one fails, rebuilding with an SMR drive can take much longer than a CMR drive). They can be OK for write-once archival.
If you want to read further into that, you can look up "Shingled magnetic recording,"
This is a '5400 RPM Class' drive, which is misleading. It is not a 5400 RPM drive. It runs at 7200 RPM.
