Most external hard drives draw to much power for a external disk i think. I've used several thumb drives, but not hard drives. An external ssd would be you're best bet as there aren't power sucking mechanical parts in them.

I did on my note 2 prior to selinux since then (kitkat+) (Haven't on my note 3 because I frequently use screen mirroring which won't work with modded kernel) if you don't use screen mirroring then you'll need a kernel that has selinux set to permissive mode (Jovvy has a stock kernel modified with permissive mode posted in original development thread) to be able to use 3rd party ntfs apps to be able to view files, unless your hdd is fat32 (which will read as long as adequate power is supplied) NTFS requires permissive mode.

**I used a 1 tb Seagate that uses wall-power
I also have a Western Digital "My Passport Ultra" that is usb powered that powers up fine when connected to my note 3 but since my selinux is enforced I can't read the files, but it would work with a modified kernel no problem

Yup, screen mirroring will only work with stock kernel.
