Desktop external hard drive price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

We've compared powered external hard drives from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.

When most consider purchasing an external hard drive, a portable option is usually to the first thing that comes to mind. However, the very nature of a portable external hard drive makes them easier to lose. When you’re dealing with such huge stashes of photos, videos, songs and memories, you’re going to want some kind of security.

That’s where a desktop external hard drive comes in handy.

Brands like Western Digital and Hewlett-Packard offer desktop storage solutions with storage options of 2TB or more. We’ve rounded up the most popular options in Australia below so you can compare prices side-by-side.

Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
