You can try Newegg or other similar sites like it, but the question is what are you planning to do with a lot of space?

Living in Europe I always buy on Amazon or Ebay. The cheapest I can find are about 20euro/TB. Last one was a 8TB seagate HUB for 152 euro.

Usually I just buy from reputable suppliers e.g. Amazon, etc. Don't know about French retailers though.

What do you plan to use it with? Just make sure that FAT32 or GPT wont be an issue (e.g. PS3).

Is the data important and not backed up? If so I would go for at least a dual HDD (single enclosure) setup which supports RAID1. Something like the WD My Book Duo I got last July on discount.

Does France do Black Friday? If not, depending on Brexit you could possibly wait for BF in the UK and Amazon AFAIK does ship across Europe.

If i were you i would wait for black friday. If you found one you can replace the FR part of amazon with Co.uk or De and so forth to see wich European amazon warehouse has the cheapest price. Europe has free trade among its countries so it doesn't matter from wich amazon warehouse you buy in Europe. Just make sure to check them all since prices are often different among different warehouses in Europe. The one i use most is the German warehouse, the Spanish warehouse has cheaper prices mostly but they have a horrible post office there and it takes 2 weeks or so before you get something even when having prime while from the German amazon warehouse you'll receive it the day after or 2 days max. French warehouse also has good prices but shipping 2 belgium also takes slow from there for some reason but in your case it probably would be different seeing you're from France

Com is for American users. If you buy from there you'll pay massive taxes. Stick to the European warehouses wich are Germany, Austria, Ireland, Poland, Spain, UK, Italy, and France. Think that's all of them

I would actually go for the 10tb drive on Amazon.de It's 50 euro's more and 40 Euro's less than on the French amazon.
