My $0.02:

Grab any known good TEAC FD55 (any model).

    FD55B 40 track two sided (does most all 40track formats)
    FD55F 80track two sided (not 1.2m capable)
    FD55G 80track two sided (does all 80 track formats plus 1.2m)

They are common and decently reliable. With one of the FD55B, FD55G
and an older 3.5" (720/1.44) that gets me most all drive related formats
save for the oddball 5.25" drives (like the 100tpi stuff).
