Howdy,

I found a deal.  It's open box but it's a good price.  I've googled to
try to find out if it is PMR or SMR but I can't find anything that says
one way or another.  I did find where it says it has a sustained
throughput of 249MB/Sec which makes me think it is PMR, plus it is a
NAS/SAS drive.  Does anyone know for sure if it is a PMR drive?  It's a
good price at $150 but I'd like to avoid a SMR drive if at all possible. 

Also, I looked at the connector and it looks like a regular SATA
connector for the data and power.  However, it does say it is a SAS
drive.  I thought SAS had a different connector but maybe I'm wrong
about that.  These SAS drives will connect to a regular SATA connector
right?  I'm thinking it will but don't need a $150 doorstop.  :/ 

Thanks to anyone who can share some info.  Let's hope that drive isn't
gone before I can find out if it works or not. 

Dale
