Looking for a good external hard drive.

USB 3 because I have the ports. It's going to sit on a desk. It's going to be under $300. It doesn't need to be an award winner, just a solid history of reliability.

Recommendations?

Quality of external drives can be difficult to tell, some folks recommend buying an internal drive of whatever capacity you need then get a enclosure to put it in, that way you know exactly what you're getting.
