All of the ones that are USB mass-storage devices will work on Linux.

Avoid Belkin and Maxtor. They will work, but the products are crap.
I tend to use Seagate or Western Digital drives in any old cheap
enclosure I can get my paws on. The last batch were Icy Dock units
The enclosures start at just £4, so it's not as if you're out of
pocket if you somehow manage to find the one model out of thousands
that won't work under Linux.
