is 14tb Easystore a shingled drive?

I cannot find definitive information and don't know whether this detail even changes. (like where it wasn't when it first came out but might be now) Does anyone know or can anyone direct me to to where to find constantly updated data about which drives are PMR vs SMR?

Looks like CMR - but that could change...

thank you! :) i'll take a risk, though i wont be shucking it for awhile. is there another way to test a drive you already have to verify what you got without opening it?

CMR. I have over 10 of them. Shucking is easy. There is a funny thing that the drive speed can be different, 5400 or 7200. Random.:eek:
5400 is better than 7200 for NAS.
