A search on "HDS723030BLE640 4k" shows that these are 4k drives with emulated 512 sectors. I didn't even need to follow any links, just skimmed through the Google results: "Hi, I bought 2x 3TB model HDS723030BLE640. ... A6 & E6 are both SATA 6GB/s, but A6 is block size 512 native mode while B6 is 512 emulation with 4K block" The poster gets which letters he's talking about a little confused, but it's clear that the HDS723030*A*... are 512 sector drives and the HDS723030 *B*... are 4K.
