WD My Passport HDD | 2TB | $120 $88 at Amazon
Save $32 - HDDs offer bang for buck value that SSDs just can't yet. And so if you're looking for the most cost effective way of playing PS4 games on your PS5, or storing your PS5 games externally, then something like the awesome WD My Passport could be the one for you. 

The WD BLACK P50 is an extremely premium external SSD and will make light work of any duties thrown its way. The drive is as close as you can get to having a superfast NVMe SSD plugged straight into the USB port, and its speeds show that: up to 2000 MB/s read speeds. This will have you enjoying your PS4 games like they were installed on some internal storage.

The Samsung is slightly more modest in its speeds, offering read speeds of up to 540MB/s but it's so reliable and quick, you'll still have a tough time even looking at your phone while you fast travel or loads games to from booting. And, it's got Samsung's premier levels of overall quality when it comes to design and build quality - this thing is sleek AF and also fits in the palm of your hand!

Lastly, while the WD My Passport cannot even nearly compete on speeds with the two SSDs here, it does offer a whopping 4TB of space for way less than the others. This has long been a favourite of ours and is often near the top of our best PS4 external hard drive guide too such is its quality and staying power.
