Portable HDD (normal and SSD)

I looking to pick up some external HDD.
Will be looking at Samsung or Sandisk for SSD.

Any recommendation for normal?
I only see HP and Seagate.
Prefer WD....

You can check the brochures again now - Toshiba and WD are options too.

Shopee having a 10% cashback sale now, given in currency of their own coins.
You can wait for the 20% coupon every 12am and 12pm, and just buy it -

Prior to this I have accumulated about 1,000 coins, so I bought a WD My passport 4TB - for around $144 - $10 (aka 1000coins) = $134, while accumuating back 1500 coins (20% cashback coupon cap). Delivery is around 1-2 days, so its relatively quick via ninjavan.

Technically I got it for if you count all the coins involved, I spent $134 with another $5 worth of shopee coins in cashback, for $129.

Heard my friend say that he saw a 4tb last show at $119-129 price range, however I did not see it myself. Perhaps you might wish to study the past year's brochure to compare prices if you are waiting for the best season to get a hdd.
