    Samsung M3 mate ;-)
    They seem to be slightly reduced in price at the mo and have a Seagate HD in them which back in the day was a bad thing but Seagate is one of the most reliable HDD's going now

    Thanks to akimba

    I like WD drives but the Samsung M3s are good too. If you don't need the portability then also consider a Synology NAS as it has loads of features for media sharing etc. at home. wasn't sure if this was a drive for you to carry around or just adding storage at home.

    Thanks to evilsatan
