I want to edit from an External hard drive on a PC with adobe premiere pro. I'm looking for something with a budget of $1200 or less. Can anyone recommend a couple good hard drives to me in that budget range?

For that kind of budget, there are a number of spinning disk options.

However, what connectivity options do you have on your PC? Do you have USB-3? eSATA? SAS? The connection type is very important in determining how useful an external storage solution will be for editing.

Besides interface as Tim pointed out -

What types of footage do you work with? Compressed, ProRes, Uncompressed? 8-bit, 10-bit? That will help determine speed requirements.

What are the storage needs - how many TBs?

Which RAID modes might you want - RAID 0 for speed (no backup), RAID 1 (mirror), RAID 5 (redundant + performance), etc?

Thanks

Hi Jeff, I will be working with various types of footage. I am concerned mostly with speed.

If you have a port available on that SAS RAID HBA, i would recommend that you purchase this 4 drive chassis: SANS Digital TR4X JBOD chassis (around $250) and then add 4 of these Seagate drives: Seagate Constellation 6TB 7200RPM disk (around $250 ea).

That will put you at around $1,250 for the total solution. You'll see very good speeds (~1GB/sec and 16TB if striped, 750MB/sec and 12TB if RAID 5).

We use a lot of these on both PC and Mac systems using ATTO R680 and HighPoint RR4822 HBAs with zero issues.
