If you believe there’s no such thing as too much storage, take a gander at the 12TB WD_Black D10 Game Drive, whose price has been slashed from £310 to just £199 at Amazon UK!

A near-40 per cent saving is not to be scoffed at, and whichever way you look at it, this is one of the most affordable routes to a massive 12TB pool of storage. It’s worth keeping an eagle eye on listings as the price has been known to dip as low as £189, which is the lowest we’ve seen in years.

While the D10 Game Drive is officially marketed as an Xbox solution, there’s no reason the 12TB repository can’t be plugged in elsewhere. You’re welcome to store PlayStation games, or if you’re behind on your backups, attach it to your NAS as an external 12TB volume to preserve all your precious data.

There’s an enterprise-grade Ultrastar DC HC520 7,200RPM hard disk residing within WD’s actively cooled casing, which also helpfully presents a pair of USB Type-A ports for charging whatever accessories or peripherals you happen to have lying around. Better still, each purchase includes a one-month membership of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is ideal if you’ve yet to venture into Starfield.

SSDs have dominated our daily deals in recent months, yet traditional hard disks still hold merit where maximum capacity is the priority. At this price point, it’s time to retire those various dongles and get to backing up properly.
