Very happy with the choice, so far so good. Glad I dodged the SMR bullet!
N.B./Public service message: the CMR/SMR was a public relations disaster for Western Digital this year - they have now addressed this by clarifying the technology clearly within the RED line. If you are a home user like I am am, and you are buying drives for NAS use, make sure its a CMR drive (WD101EFAX is a CMR drive).
Guess I was unlucky with this model.
Amazon refunded, so no problem, and I ordered another model that worked fine.

Only use SMR if you plan to save smaller files and have backups saved on other drives. It is unsuitable for data for businesses or anything precious which isn't saved elsewhere. Temporary cache only. IMHO.
Look for the FRX drives over FAX. This is the only way to tell CMR to SMR.
Los buenos, los CMR de toda la vida, son los de la serie EFRX
Los lentos como este son los de la serie EFAX.
Si no fuese por el trastorno de devolverlo y esperar a uno nuevo con el raid degradado, en esta época de plazos desconocidos por el covid 19, lo devolvía ahora mismo
