The best storage deal of Black Friday has arrived. Right now Amazon is selling the WD Black 5TB Game Drive for £88 in the UK and $95 in the US, a historic low price in both countries by a significant margin and a genuinely great deal for owners of next-gen consoles.
These portable 2.5-inch external hard drives give you a ton of storage for games and media, and can be used with games consoles like the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. Of course, they’re also a great shout for PCs, Macs and Linux computers as well. You’re not even paying extra for the armoured design and gamer branding either – these are currently the cheapest 5TB hard drives on Amazon of any variety!
If you’re after even faster external storage, then you should take a look at the Crucial X8 external NVMe SSD. This drive is rated up to 1050MB/s, making it twice as fast as a SATA SSD, and uses a high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 2 connection over either USB-C or full-size USB-A. Right now, the 1TB Crucial X8 is £96 in the UK and $130 in the US, a historic low price and significantly below the £150/$165 this drive normally costs.
