What is the HD part number inside Elements Desktop 5TB 3.5" External HDD

Please can anyone tell me the part number inside the “WD Elements Desktop 5TB 3.5” External HDD Black". They appear to be good value for money for a 5Tb drive compared to buying the drives as internal drives.

I am interested in buying several to pull apart and install in a server, but dont want to find they are funny firmware/controllers etc…

… any thoughts?
