So i'm going on deployment here in about a month and i need a large USB flash drive to hold tons of movies on it so i can watch them while im on ship. Any suggestions of a large USB flash drive that will be able to hold at-least 20+ movies?

How many movies a drive will hold depends on the size of the drive and the size of the movies.

I just installed an Samsung Evo 860 SSD drive in a USB enclosure. Now I have 1 TB of portable storage.

Here, an external SSD is neither warranted or needed.

A flash drive is smaller, cheaper, more universally connectible.
2 of them (or 3), because a single drive would get lost, corrupted, broken.

When a shipmate wants to borrow your drive so that he can watch movies while you are on duty...and she breaks it or loses it...that's where the spare copy comes in.

And a movie or your music playlist does not play any faster if it lives on a SSD.

If for your whole squad, share the $$$, and buy several of these.
You do the brainwork of setting it up...they provide the funds to make it happen...;)

Trust me i'm not gonna be buying there drives for them! But that would actually be hilarious, a charging fee for each movie.
