NAS Hard drives

I’ve got a PowerEdge T340 with a HBA330 running TrueNAS finally running after a bit of faffing on hardware. I purchased some cheaper Seagate Constellation ES drives (3TB NL SAS) drives x 4, but tbh they’re so noisy. So I’m looking to change them out.

I originally built the server with TrueNAS Scale, but decided to drop back to Core.

Currently the vDEV is configured as RAIDZ2, originally I was going to go for 2 x Mirror vDEV.

What NAS drive recommendations, I’m mindful of WD Red drives due to the SMR debacle?
