I didn't know where to place this topic. so to avoid argument with the mod on maybe a less critical topic I'll just place it here.

I generally find Western digital sells for the same type of drive. For instance WDnnEZRZ slightly different designs. See picture. Could you tell beforehand which type ypu're gonna receive as a customer?
Is A for instance sold in yhe ISA and B in Europe?

I think that type A is made in Malaysia and B in Thailand. Though googling I f?ound that Thailand also makes type A. shell for some models. Resellers are never accurate about what they have in stock. And calling them is a bit of a hassle.

The suffix is different. This means they belong to different families, Apollo versus Giant. They have 6 and 8 heads, respectively, so the 6-head model would appear to be more recent.

What does STD mean. Like in standard or retail version?

Probably.

Note that "00GXCB0" would be the retail version, whereas "22GXCB0" would be an OEM version. "GXC" is the family code.

See http://www.acelab.ru/dep.pc/doc.pc3000dos/060713.001/WD-main-N-2.pdf (Russian)

    22 = customer ID (00 = generic)
    GXC = family identifier
    B0 = customer configuration code
