Good 1-2 TB reliable external HD-to fit in safe deposit box?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent external hard drive at a relatively inexpensive price? I was debating on whether to use online storage or not, but given the amount of data that I have, I think that an external hard drive stored offsite in a safety deposit box would suit my needs. I plan to start backing up this weekend to it. I have a WD Mybook Essential, but I figure that's a bit too large for a safety deposit box. I think they may actually offer the smaller "Passport" external drives even up to 2 TB, that may be perfect as far as the size to fit in a safety deposit box. Are these WD Passport drives fairly reliable? You read so many reviews online that vary and it makes it hard to get a good idea.... This drive would rarely be touched, I'd only retrieve it to take home and back up some items not very often at all, and then just drive back and place in the safety deposit box.
