Hi crconti. Your USB 3 controller is probably more relevent than the drive maker. I can confirm that AMD and NEC seem to work well with LM14.
Any of the Seagates or WD ext drives should be fine. Though I suggest though that you buy at least a 1Tb drive. You will find plenty of uses for the space over the next years.
