Does the Seagate Exos X14 14TB HD use SMR?

Recommended Posts

Fellow Forum Members,

Can anyone out there please clarify for me which of the three recording technologies listed below is used in the Seagate Exos X14 14TB?

Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR)  (aka Longitudinal Magnetic Recording (LMR)).
Perpindicular Magnetic Recording (PMR)
Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR)

I called Seagate Tech support and they did not know.  Mainly, I want to stay away from SMR drives. Therefore, I need to confirm the Seagate Exos X14 14TB does not rely on SMR technology. Additionally, does a website exist that list recording technologies used by all hard drive manufactures for the 14tb hard drives they sell? I would like to know what recording technology a Western Digital Gold Label 14tb hard drive uses. Does WD use SMR? Or PMR for its 14tb hard drives?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
