HGST 0B36404 CMR or SMR?

Hi guys, does all HGST series is CMR.

I want to buy this

Western Digital HGST Ultrastar 7K8 3.5 8TB 7200rpm 256MB SATA3 HUS728T8TALE6L4 / 0B36404

and use it with FREENAS with ZFS but i cant find info CMR or SMR?
Does HGST is better or WD RED PLUS?
Thx in advance to everyone.


here’s a HGST 15TB DC HC620 which clearly states SMR.

These are SMR disks are not drive managed, they host managed. Not sure if most realize that a consumer NAS is not the place for this class of disk.
