If you picked up a new laptop on Black Friday, you’ll likely need some storage space to transfer over photos and important documents, or to just speed up its overall performance. Well, Amazon has your back. Its Cyber Monday sale is cutting prices on all kinds of Western Digital hard drives for the home office, gaming, photography, and more.

For the Home Office, Amazon is cutting back prices on some Western Digital My Passport external hard drives. You’ll be able to pick up a 2TB My Passport for $80 instead of the normal price of $111. This portable drive is great for storing photos and videos and backing up a computer or a phone.

For something with a bit more storage, as well as for backing up multiple devices, you can also save on the Elements Desktop Hard Drive. It comes in a 6TB size, which makes it an excellent solution for backing up all your laptops, desktops, or even phones and tablets. It normally retails for well over $190, but it’s now on sale for $95.

Finally, there are some deals on more traditional solid-state-drives (SSDs) and HDDs. As we’ve explained, these SSDs can be put in a new computer or laptop to boost overall system performance. You’ll also find significant savings on WD Black HDDs, which are great to add to a desktop or laptop for secondary storage of photos, games, and more.

Sales cover the WD Blue 3D Nand 1TB SATA III SSD (now $100 instead of $115), as well as the WD Blue SN500 250GB NVMe Internal SSD, which now retails for $43. Other deals include a $9 savings on the WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive. This drive is specifcally designed for creative professionals, gamers and system builders.


Gamers will find a sweet discount on external hard drives of various sizes, which can allow you to boost your storage and download more games onto your game console. One of the best deals is on the Western Digital Black 4TB Game Drive. Normally selling for around $130, you can find the 4TB version for $110. You can also find a WD 2TB My Passport X for Xbox One, which is now 38% off at $80. This is a great way to boost storage without breaking the bank.


Capping off Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale on Western Digital Products are deals on some HDDs or SSDs that can be used for photography. This includes the 1TB My Passport Wireless SSD, which is now $390 instead of $500. This nifty little SSD has a built-in SD card reader, all-day battery life, and allows you to import images and other content from your laptop or device without the need for wires.

For something that’s cheaper, Amazon is also cutting the price of the WD 512GB My Passport SSD down from $160 to a mere $85. This is a super-compact portable SSD that features USB-C connectivity and blazing-fast file transfers, with read speeds up to 540 MB. It’s a great companion for any photographer.

Amazon's package deal gets you both for just $139 -- only $10 more than buying the doorbell itself.
