Question How can I be sure that the 6TB Seagate IronWolf NAS HHDs I purchase are CMR drives, not SMR?

Just to clarify, guys...It says right on the Seagate website that Ironwolf NAS and Ironwolf Pro are both CMR drives; but, with the latest news/expose' of WD, Seagate and Toshiba releasing SMR drives into the marketplace without any disclaimers or info about it...It has made me just a wee bit nervous. It would be really nice if an established tech info site like Tom's could somehow get assurances from Seagate and the others that the info will be included in all their' marketing from this point on. LOL
