Save 41% A giant 20TB desktop hard drive from Western Digital with USB 3.0 connectivity, that's enough storage space to back up millions of photos and songs, hundreds of games and thousands of hours of TV shows and movies.

While it’s a hard disk drive rather than a speedy solid state drive, 20TB of storage is enough for a lifetime’s worth of digital storage needs. That roughly translates to:

  • 4.5 million 12MP photos
  • 4,500 hours of HD video
  • 117 million documents

or 1 Call of Duty Warzone installation. Joking! But it is genuinely enough to have hundreds of games installed on your PC at once. A must-buy for the storage-strapped PC user.

Is it a great candidate for our Black Friday hard drive deals page? We think so. Just bear in mind that you will probably need to back it up often (either using RAID or using cloud backup or another external hard drive). You don't want to end up having to pony up for expensive data recovery services.

Not in the UK? No problem, check out this cracking deal from Seagate. The Exos has a slightly smaller capacity to the WD Elements but - ahem - it is also an internal model. Nonetheless a worthy candidate if you are a Seagate fan.
