If you're anything like us, you take up an absolute ton of hard drive space, with music, photos, games and more. So, having a reliable external hard drive like the WD EasyStore is super necessary, and having one with 5TB of capacity is even better, especially when you can save $80 with a Cyber Monday deal

Right now at Best Buy, you can pick up the WD EasyStore 5TB external hard drive for just $89.99, which makes it one of the most affordable good external hard drives in this capacity. Even at Amazon, most 5TB external hard drives are about $10 more expensive right now, with only the Seagate Backup Plus 5TB seeing the same price – and that one isn't nearly as portable.
