any USB 3.0 1.8" or 1.5" HDD supported on MacOS (OS-X)

There's a time I saw 1.8" (or is it 1.5" )  USB HDD on sale but
rarely see them nowadays.

I'm looking for one (of 500GB or above) which is USB 3.0 &
could be supported by Mac (OS-X).

Many of the 2.5" USB 3 HDDs require extra power but the
1.8" could just connect & get detected (doesn't require extra
power).

Anyone has any amazon.com link or other links that point
to such a product?

I believe you can get the same drive in USB3 at a lower price.

I only found a 1.8" Hitachi USB 2 HDD of only 80GB capacity
at dx.com (which is rather costly for per GB cost).  Looks like
no manufacturer is going for 1.8" USB HDDs anymore
