[UK] £85 - Seagate Barracuda 4TB 2.5" (15mm ff)

I'm looking to replace a full 1TB 2.5" drive with a 4TB one, so will likely take this option of shucking (as it's about £130 to buy a 2.5" 4TB internal drive compared to this £90 option).

Are there any problems to using SMR in Unraid aside from speed issues? 

Like, does it affect the redundancy or rebuilds or something?

No, and they usually perform well for most uses.

Just thought I'd say here for posterity that I bought the 4TB Seagate Expansion Portable STEA4000400 (found an open box special for £70) and shucked it to reveal a ST4000LM024 SATA drive. Scan sell those drives for £128, so it was quite a saving!

After a single-pass pre-clear, it's now in my array and seemingly working well.
