Compatible USB Drives to Roku Ultra that are 500GB+?

I bought a Roku Ultra specifically for the USB. I tried a 1TB Sandisk Extreme SSD, formatted correctly per the help article, but the Roku would not recognize it (I did not get a "too much power demand" notification, so don't think that is the issue).

Has anyone had success with a 500GB thumb drive or SSD? If so, which specific model worked for you?

Side note: it's kind of ridiculous that Roku doesn't support ExFat or APFS for Mac users. Come on, Roku.

You paid how much for your Apple device vs. your Roku device?  It's kind of ridiculous that Apple doesn't support other formats.
