Hard Drive Options at Black Friday 2020

There is a huge selection of hard drives to choose from, so having an idea of what you want out of them is wise before heading into the Black Friday 2020 sales.


A general rule is that the more storage you go for, the higher the price. Aim for an HDD with 2 TB of storage if you're looking to spend less this year, which will be perfect for most gamers.

More Storage

If you think you'll need more, you can aim for at least 5 TB of storage. At this price, you may encounter some more durable builds, designed to add a physical layer of protection to your files too! Brilliant for people who want to take it on the go.

Dramatic increase to storage: WD 5 TB HDD for under £120!

Top of the line

If you're all about maximising performance and using the latest technology, then an SSD is for you. They're more expensive but are much faster than HDDs.

More storage & performance: WD 1 TB SSD for under £210!


Hard Drives and Next-Gen 

If you're looking for an HDD or SSD for next-gen, you'll find a brief breakdown of how they work with PS5 and Xbox Series X below.


HDDs are usable, but only for PS4 games.

SSDs can be used to expand storage, however, not all off the shelf SDDs will work with PS5.

SOLID: The SSD in the PS5 is seriously impressive

PS5 has its own custom, super-fast SSD which has been designed specifically for playing PS5 games.

Xbox Series X

HDDs can be used on Xbox Series X to play Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.

You can also store back-ups of Xbox Series X games, however, you can play these games only after moving them to the SSD.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX! The Xbox Series X also has a powerful SSD under the hood

There will be an official 'storage expansion card' (an SSD), which will greatly increase its storage.

It would appear that when it comes to next-gen gaming, purchasing a compatible SSD for next-gen consoles is a good way to go. However, if you want to play your current-gen games on the next-gen console, then an HDD should do the trick!
