With its WD Black range, Western Digital primarily targets both console and PC gamers. But its classic 8TB hard drive is aimed at everyone, especially with a promotion that drops it below the 200 euros mark.
Don’t be fooled by the “gaming” dimension of the WD Black HDD, this hard drive can be used just like a regular external drive. Especially in view of its imposing storage capacity of 8 TB. Better still, its price is down since Amazon withdraws almost 70 euros from the final invoice.
In short :
- A sturdy shell;
- 8 TB of storage;
- 250 Mo / s and 7 200 tr / min.
The WD Black 8TB external hard drive is offered at 179.99 euros instead of 241.99 euros at Amazon.
To know more
Aware of the fragility of hard drives, Western Digital has opted for a metal shell with a very “industrial” aesthetic. This choice allows the WD Black to benefit from more protection than conventional drives.
Inside the shell is the 8TB hard drive which will store a colossal amount of files, documents, or videos. Of course, it is also possible to store many games there, although an SSD will be more interesting, if only for the speed of execution. Still, this disk can serve as a backup system for your PC, and thus have a backup solution in the event of a memory problem.
WD has integrated a USB 3.0 interface with two USB-A ports. This allows for fast transfer and write speeds since they peak at around 250MB / s. A rate well enough to transfer large files in a few minutes. What’s more, the WD Black can reach 7,200 rpm, and has an active cooling system to prevent overheating. However, not being an SSD, this external drive can be noisy due to its mechanism.
