I purchased a WD 6 TB My Book Desktop Hard Drive - Black WDBBGB0060HBK (from Amazon, see link) and after running CDM is seems like it is a SMR drive:

Did WD start selling SMR units? Or am I misinterpreting the results?

 

Is there a reliable test to determine if a unit is SMR or not?

Yes, there are 2TB and 6TB SMR drives, in both Red and Blue line:

 

Red 2TB - WD20EFAX

Red 6TB - WD60EFAX

 

Blue 2TB - WD20EZAZ
Blue 6TB - WD60EZAZ

 

AFAIK currently these are the only WD 3.5" SMR drives.
