Regarding which are SMR. Here is a good place to start:
TOSHIBA:   https://toshiba.semicon-storage.com/ap-en/company/news/news-topics/2020/04/storage-20200428-1.html
WD: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/wd-lists-all-drives-slower-smr-techNOLOGY
Seagate: https://blocksandfiles.com/2020/04/15/seagate-2-4-and-8tb-barracuda-and-desktop-hdd-smr/

It seems that drive manufactures were being a bit secretive about it,
but they have all come clean now, documenting which HDD are SMR.

Kind Regards
