Hard drives, also called HDDs, belong to another era, but they are far from obsolete. Aware of their shortcomings, they excel in terms of value for money. Whether for your PC, PS4 or as portable storage, treat yourself to these tempting offers during the 2023 winter sales.
Hello everyone, and after wishing you a happy new year and good health, it’s time to wish you good sales. For this time, and this is quite exceptional, hard drives are in the spotlight. While they are a little unloved because of their slowness compared to SSDs, they exterminate the latter in terms of price. If you’re looking for storage for next to nothing, this is the item for you.
The HDD or hard disk is a file storage system including, among other things, a physical disk to house your photos, videos, files, etc. Thus, to download files to it or to extract them, the disk must rotate so that the HDD seeks and finds the corresponding elements. So it takes time, makes a bit of noise, but also takes up more space than SSD, all-electronic and newer options.
Attention : if you want to build a PC that you want fast or to play video games, we strongly advise against taking an HDD. Even if the price is very attractive, your PC will take forever to turn on, the same for any program or game, the computer having to go through this hard drive to perform these actions.
On the other hand, if you are looking for internal or external storage that has the sole purpose of storing a large number of heavy files on the cheap, or expanding the storage of your PS4, all without the need for fast transfers, then continue. read on, you will enjoy the rest.
So here are the best hard drive deals during the sales, sorted by amount of storage.

PS4 : disque dur 2 To Marvel Avengers Thor
This hard drive is designed specifically for the PS4. Sony’s console is already quite a few years behind it, so there’s no need to spend a lot of money on fast storage it’s not compatible with. That’s why a simple hard drive is more than enough, and with Game Drive technology, Sony optimization for the PS4 is a breeze and your games load as fast as with the console’s internal storage.
The case is quite small (12 cm) and is entirely designed by Marvel. This model is dedicated to Thor, the god of thunder is on the cover and the PlayStation logo ensures official compatibility.
How to forget the amount of storage present. 2 TB, or 2000 GB, is gigantic, knowing that PS4 games weigh much less than PS5 games. Expect to put about 50 games in there.

Disque dur Externe 2 To Seagate (PC, Mac…)
I present to you the portable hard drive from Seagate with no less than 2 TB of storage inside. The interest of this kind of product is to be able to take it everywhere with you and to connect it to the devices with which you wish to exchange files. We warn you right away, it’s an HDD, so it’s not fast, but should do the trick to put photos in and bring them out from time to time.
The advantage is of course the price. Far less than 100€ for 2000 GB, it is absolutely unthinkable for SSDs, the fastest storage medium. This model works with a USB 3.0 port.
No computer compatibility issues. Whether you have a Mac or Windows, you can permanently store your cherished files without worry, especially if you don’t trust cloud storage.

Seagate 4TB Internal Hard Drive
Here is an internal hard drive equipped with 4 TB of storage. If there is one important thing to check when buying an HDD, it’s its nature: internal or external. Here, this IronWolf NAS model from Seagate is made to be placed in a PC that you build, and not to carry everywhere with you.
Even if it has a nice style, this HDD is made to sleep in your PC and to add slow but substantial storage to it: 4 TB is more than enough for the vast majority of uses, unless you have tons of files heavy videos.

Disque dur portable externe 5 To Western Digital Elements
We start on an external hard drive, but we go to Western Digital. It is the reference brand in the field, so you should not encounter any problems with quality and optimization.
A portable hard drive is made to be carried around. We must not forget that there is a physical disk inside and that it remains more fragile than an SSD. With the USB 3.0 port, transfers are quite slow like all HDDs, but the advantage is the amount of storage: 5 TB, we wish you good luck filling it entirely.
Its all-black design is versatile, it measures 11 centimeters and fits in a pocket. An economical solution to take tons of files, photos and videos with you.

Disque dur externe de bureau 8 To Western Digital My Book
Desktop hard drives are external HDDs but are not intended for transportation. They are stationary, bulkier, but can accommodate more storage than their portable counterparts.
This model from Western Digital is dressed all in black and measures 17 cm high, 13.9 cm long and 4.9 cm wide. By being still transportable, it remains discreet on a desk, but not invisible either. This My Book is compatible with Mac and PC, and comes with password protection.
8 TB of storage, how can I tell you, this is the maximum that Apple offers for its fixed computers and makes them pay 2760€. The type of storage is of course completely different, but it’s still amazing to see the price difference.

Disque dur interne 8 To Western Digital BarraCuda
This may be the internal hard drive with the largest amount of storage. 8 TB or 8000 GB that you can put in your PC is impressive. As a reminder, this is a very slow storage but which is mainly used to greatly extend the space available in your machine to store files whose transfer speed is not important for you. It should not be used as the main storage which takes care of turning on your PC and launching games for example.
The 3.5-inch disk spins at 5400 rpm, a great classic from Seagate, which can technically be used externally but is not designed for this. You can’t imagine the number of photos, videos and files you can store in such a huge HDD.

Western Digital 14TB Desktop Hard Drive
This is the most massive hard disk I have seen in my life. Western Digital pulled out all the stops with this desktop storage station, named Elements. Measuring 16.5 cm high, 13.5 cm long and 4.8 cm wide, the case looks a bit like a PC tower in miniature version.
The challenge for you is above all to fill this HDD. It is intended for you if you really intend to place an astronomical amount of files there, while not needing a high transfer speed. If you can get 14TB for such a price, it’s good that the speed is not there.
With a USB 3.0 port on the back, just plug it into a computer and it works like a thumb drive.
