shingled drives have the same speed random reading as non-shingled drives
Right, so if you can find an application where you have large sequential writing, but fast random reading, that might justify shingled disks. If instead, you have random writing, you'll want a non-shingled disk, and if instead you have large sequential reading, you'll want tape.
