Where is the best place to purchase a new floppy drive for my Amiga 500? I know ebay but I'm looking for a good website who might be selling them. I found one on Etsy -- RetroTekki. Anyone have any dealings with him?
I just looked at that drive you mention on Etsy. The seller has one picture of a black-faced drive, and two of a beige-faced model. They look like standard PC internal floppy drives, so I'd advise to get more info from the seller before buying.
Or, you could do as I did, when I decided to spare my original CDTV drives and use a std. PC floppy instead - I purchased a converter from Poland; they're quite inexpensive and allow you to use both Amiga and PC/converted drives, as well as reconfiguring them as DF0: or DF1: to suit your needs.
