External HDD

Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy a reliable external hard drive (non ssd) with USB 3.0/3.1 and at least 1TB storage. I will need to have this shipped to NS, so I can do EMT.
Let me know what you have! Thanks!

fyi, in an external an ssd will be more reliable then mechanical hard drive
mechanical drive easily breaks if you drop it accidentally
but is your choice

Thank you for the advice and linking me to those deals! I'd like to help out someone on here first before buying from the store.
I know an ssd would be better, however it will be overkill for the needs of the person using this.

I have a brand new Seagate One Touch external SSD - 1 Terabyte SSD

Can't match the cost of a mechanical drive.
