I have two 1TB USB3 external drives from Toshiba (laptop drives in a
plastic enclosure) which work with both FreeBSD and Windows7.

Since they're USB3 there's no problem with powering them.  Transfer
rates on the order of 90 MB/s.

Here's what's on the sticker:

v63700-C 1TB

Don't know whether these are still available.  Seems to me I bought
them cheap on eBay or amazon.
