I have a 1TB external Toshiba HDD purchased for the exact same need as you - works absolutely fine!

As for internal HDD's, used to have WD Blue in my old PC, worked for 10 years! Used it in my current computer for a couple of months after my HDD died before buying two SSD's and it still works 'till this day!
Overall, I think whichever one you choose, it will suit your needs. Not sure what is the difference in the E/P/A300 Toshiba's! Other than the price, of course! :D
