This post contains the best prices available for each drive from the major retailers. This should take all the pain out of tracking down the best place to buy, whether you're looking for a specific drive, or just want the best price per GB!

If your Xbox One is tacking a battering from Halo MCC, GTA V and AC Unity, it's probably time to buy new external drive. Alternatively, if you consider yourself part of the PC Master Race and the Steam sale is taking it's toll, you'll find plenty of options for SSD and internal drives to fill too!

If you've seen my previous post, the format is the same. The lists below are in capacity/price order. In brackets you'll find the retailer and the code to paste into their website search box to find the drive.

I've also included a TL;DR version at the bottom, for those of you that just want the absolute best price per capacity without all the fuss.

The list is not pointless Pablo, a lot of buyers will see the list in one place, then go an compare [just like you just did] come back and post "hey I found it cheaper" and the OP will update the list, when and if he/she can :D

As an example, I actually forgot to get a couple of 5TB expansions last time, as could not find the single thread, now I just look in once place, have a search and buy if not cheaper|better deal elsewhere..

£149 in list above, forgot to buy them at £119, just got reminded by this thread to find them, bought them for £119, happy camper ;-)
