SATA HDD advice please

I'm looking for a 4tb HDD to put in an external SATA drive caddy.

I used to buy through Amazon but the reviews seem to be showing recently a tendency to offer fakes. It seems the biggest problem comes from offering 'cmr' and selling drives that are 'smr' - and apparently far less effective. I am not a techie so am not sure what the problem is that folk are getting so annoyed about.

Another fake is due to Amazon taking clad external USB devices and removing the covering so people think they are buying a SATA to fit inside a PC.

I'm in the UK so need suggestions that can be sourced locally, please.
