Reliable External Hard Drive??

I am a cinematographer/film maker who has tons and tons of gigs of video footage created each week. I have tired a couple different brands of external hard drives, but somehow they always end up crashing, and I loose everything. I keep telling myself time and time again that I will not let this keep happening to me. I lost a total of 4 terabytes of data so far. I am at the point now where
I can avoid a crash since my hard drive failed to mount, but i repaired it and that data was all still there. I need to buy a new one but I really don't know what brand is the most reliable. They all have mixed reviews. I need a reliable external hard drive roughly 1.5 tb to 2 if I could. I have tons of gigs of hd video, and I edit on the go with my laptop. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a brand that would fit my needs. I will carry it around a lot as I move from place to place. Please all help would be appreciated. I really would like a hard drive that could last for more than a year and not crash on me. I would like to add price is another factor.. i really don't want to be paying $500. $200 or lower if possible please
