I use WD books for my photography, similar to these below.
I have mine for photographs and have it set to raid, so a 12 TB system has 2 6TB drives and it backs up individually to both of them , so if you ever have a drive failure in it, the other one is still ok. I have them set for my photo storage so they go to them when downloaded off my camera. Or you can set them as a single drive, ie the full 12TB
There are plenty of makes, but I have always found Western Digital to be very good drives, so maybe I am a bit biased..

They also do clearance which are older end of line models, such as

You will also find them on Ebay that people have probably bought as the stock clearances etc and sell on at good prices.

Though I do not need the facility to connect the drive to the web, so I use the simple storage version, such as
