Any 180k,360k, or 720k disk drive will work. The key is either single or double density / one or two sided drive. It won't work with 1.2M or 1.44M drives. These use high density disks.
360k/double sided 40track drives are most typical with the Coco. If you are interested, I have single 360k drives in an enclosure with ribbon cable for $55.00, plus shipping. You'll pay that for just a bare drive on eBay. My disks have been tested and speed verified.
If you do choose the eBay route, look for "best offer" and offer $40. I've seen drives listed for $79 and they accepted $40.
