    Western Digital My Book 4TB is my choice.
    Been using it for a while and never had a problem.

    If you go to that link, there will be a button to change the size to 4 TB. It is $224.99 USD. I think the one you found is probably better, at least cheaper.

    I've only used Seagate 4TB external enclosures, but this worked pretty okay for me.

    http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Backup-Desktop-External-STCA4000100/dp/B00829THLE/

    It periodically goes down to about $140 so if price is a concern this could be a good option.

    It doesn't have a power on/off switch though... so I've always left it on :)

    Anything WD (western digital). Stay away from seagate, been total **** for the last few years. (I have a stack of faulty seagate drives in our offices from laptops to servers, all waiting to be drilled and smashed).
