And USB 2.0 will work just fine.

My advice and suggestions should never be considered advice or suggestions. These are mostly insane ramblings of a poor aircraft mechanic who can, strangely enough, still hear.

I'd go with the biggest ext drive you get afford. Start with a 500GB and back up each session to a DVD.
