The big day may have passed by, but there are great Black Friday external hard drive deals still available now across various sites, and we’ve rounded them up for you. There’s still chance to pick up some of the best external hard drives with significant discounts, but don’t wait around as they won’t be available for too much longer.

External hard drives provide an ideal solution for adding additional storage to your systems, with a low price to gigabytes ratio and no internal tinkering required to install them. You’ll find that even the best gaming PC or best gaming laptop will only have enough initial storage for a handful of chunky AAA games, and an external HDD is a cheap and easy way to resolve this issue. Black Friday external hard drive deals still available now include a wide range of sales from trusted brands including WD, SanDisk, Seagate, and more.

Of course, there’s also a huge market for console gamers looking to increase storage, and we’ve put together dedicated lists of the best Xbox Series X external hard drives and best PS5 external hard drives to help you find the right one. Fortunately, external HDDs can store PS5 and Xbox Series X games as well – though you’ll need to transfer them back to the system to play them.

It’s also worth mentioning that an external hard drive won’t match the speed of the best SSDs for gaming (check out our Black Friday SSD deals guide for offers on those), but they are cheaper if you just want to free up some storage space. They’re also a little more convenient to install, as all you have to do is plug them into your device (usually via USB 3.1 or USB-C) and you’re golden.
