Hello, i recently bought a Seagate Expansion 10TB to add to my NAS and after shucking it turns out this is a BarraCuda(?) drive. Checking the serial number on Seagate’s website shows it as an IronWolf drive.
I am trying to figure out what this drive is and if it is an SMR or CMR drive, as I’ve never seen the model number ST10000DM005 before. It seems to be running at 7200rpm but that’s as far as i have gotten with the testing.
I will put it in my NAS and do some file transfers to test the speed, but this drive is really confusing me.
It says BarraCuda on the drive itself but the serial number shows up as IronWolf.
Here are some pictures of the drive and a screencap of the warranty website: [https://imgur.com/a/39d4qWX](https://imgur.com/a/39d4qWX)
If anyone have any more details about these drives i am all ears, but as of now i will get it into my nas and do some testing.
Edit: did some speed tests and it seems to drop off over time like an SMR drive but i cant confirm this without doing full write cycles on the drive. Saw someone report high temps on this drive but mine seems to be pretty much normal, but it is LOUD, much louder than my other drives.
Edit2: did some quick benchmarks on my server and here are the results: [https://imgur.com/a/UBTnjv4](https://imgur.com/a/UBTnjv4) i did both 100mib and 10mib benchmarks, both with 200 samples.
