I thought this seemed like a decent price for a 500GB portable SSD drive. Certainly seems like one of the cheapest on Amazon from a reputable brand.

There is also the Seagate 500GB One Touch for £64.99, which appears to be very similar but with fabric style case.

For comparison the PNY SSD Elite 480GB for £57.98, but I'm not familiar with the brand.

Interested to get peoples thoughts on this, as I'm not clued up on the different types of SSD.

Thoughts on the Seagate vs the PNY and if there is anything better value out there sub £65.

Planning to load up with kids films and leave plugged in the back of the TV most of the time.

For your use case I'd get a portable 2tb mechanical drive for the same price, you won't need an SSD.

Hot from me though! Ordered to leave attached to my router as a NAS for my CCTV, my thoughts were it would be silent and low power?

I just thought there was less wear and tear on an SSD. So with the drive switching on and off with the TV I thought the SSD would be more robust. Currently using a 1tb Toshiba Cavio which I've filled but cant fault it for performance, just expecting it to pack up at some point in the next 5 years.

Theoretically SSD should last longer but to be honest I don't think the USB actually shut down with TV off, you'll need to check.
Will a portable SSD stand up to being knocked about in a backpack on the daily commute better than a normal portable hard drive?

I'm no expert but I would have thought so, there are no moving parts to get damaged. It will also be a lot smaller so easier to carry
