Back up everything with this discounted 16TB external HDD from WD

Right now, a pair of massive 16TB external hard drives are going ‘cheap’ on Amazon UK. Despite RRPs of over £400, you can get a basic model for £245 or a slightly fancier box for £270. Either way, you’ll have a ton of storage space for backups, video projects, game install directories and other media. My colleagues at Digital Foundry pick these drives up regularly for their video production work, as capturing game footage and creating YouTube videos quickly causes standard hard drive sizes to fill up. You never want to be in a situation where you’re forced to delete…

WD’s super-fast SN850 PCIe 4.0 SSD hits a historic low on Amazon UK

The WD Black SN850 is one of the best-reviewed NVMe SSDs on the market, one of those ‘second-gen’ PCIe 4.0 drives that can hit blistering read speeds of up to 7000MB/s. Today, the heatsink-equipped model is down to a historic low price of £140 for a 1TB model, or £255 for a 2TB model. Either way, you’re getting a top-spec drive at a very competitive price. The SN850 is a drive that we’ve tested and recommended here at RPS, with RPS head honcho Katharine dubbing it ‘the best PCIe 4.0 SSD we’ve tested yet’ after it debuted early last year….

WD Black SN770 review: just short of SSD greatness

Western Digital are continuing their charge into high-speed PCIe 4.0 SSDs with the WD Black SN770. This is pretty straight down the middle as far as Gen 4 SSDs go: the 1TB model I’ve tested claims sequential speeds up to 5150MB/s for reads and 4900MB/s for writes, enough to embarrass any PCIe 3.0 SSD without veering into mega-enthusiast territory. There’s a broad range of capacities too, starting at 250GB and ending at a roomy 2TB. Read more
