suggestions for a local backup drive?

In this age of ransomware, I need to stop relying on OneDrive for my backup - because it's vulnerable if my PC gets attacked. I need to back up on removable local storage, I need capacity approaching 1 TB, and I'd like it to be fast enough to take full advantage of my USB 3.1 ports, which supposedely support 5 Gb/sec. It doesn't need to be tiny (I won't be carrying it around), and obviously I want it to be reliable.

There are countless flash/SSD drives on Amazon, claiming various speeds. Some get bad reviews, some are very slow, and some are clearly scams.

I figured I'd get some good advice here from other photographers.
