Been waiting a while? Get Flash to see this player.
More than just an exhibition, Gadget Show Live lets you see, try and buy.
WD Red drives will use SMR, but WD Red Plus and WD Red Pro SKUs will stick to CMR tech.
And it is updating web pages, marketing materials with SMR tech info, benchmarks etc.
SMR can be a problem if you are building a storage system for write-intensive workloads.
