Incredibly, the best deal we've seen on an external drive over the whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday is still live, getting you a whopping 52% off a super-fast, super spacious and brilliantly compact 1TB SSD external hard drive. This is the kind of deal you'd think would be gone pretty quickly, but despite appearing on Black Friday, it's continued into Cyber Monday. If you're quick, you can still grab the SanDisk 1TB SSD reduced from $249.99 to $119.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) – a saving of $130.

And don't worry if you're in the UK, because this Black Friday hard drive deal still has a few hours left to run there too. Again you get the SanDisk 1TB SSD for less than half price (opens in new tab) – just £99.99 at Amazon in the UK.

We reckon these are THE hard drive deals of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but they're not the only options. If you prioritise space over speed and prefer an HDD, this half-price deal on a WD 2TB HDD for just $54.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) is also hugely impressive, saving you $55.

A close contender for the best ongoing Black Friday hard drive deal in the UK is this Samsung option, also a 1TB SSD. It's slightly heavier than the SanDisk above but offers comparable speeds for a slightly lower price.
