OK, here's a mystery for you all. I've got a drive here: WD5000AAVS-00ZTB0

PC-3000 Detects it as Spider Family
Module C5 says Hulk
And I see some drives with this after the dash code saved as Dragonfly 4 (I'm quite certain it's not).

So what's the consensus?

Could it be that the firmware on these families are so close that the VSC commands and other parameters are so close that it does not matter? Just a guess....

Have you posed this question to Ace Labs directly? I would be curious to know.
