No company that I know of still manufactures the ICD Link or equivalent. Your best bet is to look up on EBay and wait for one to show... usually takes anywhere from 2-4 months.

What would be a fair price for a ICD Link 2 on Ebay?

So I don't get ripped of...

Ive seen them go anywhere from about 15 euros to over 100, average probably about 60. Be sure to watch the hard disk auctions, sometimes an icd is included and you end up getting both cheaper than just the icd.

Last place I ever saw stocking the link had them for about 100 USD I believe.

I'm not sure, but I think it was Best Electronics.

I would guess that a used one should be a wee bit cheaper, but don't bet on it, many consider the link worth it's weight in gold.

However, Best Electronics do have another similar product:
Atari ST SCSI Adapter Cable This 2 1/2 foot DB19 Male to DB50 pin SCSI adapter cable has the required interface electronics molded into the DB50 connector end of the cable. This cable will allow you to connect up to your Atari ST systems most SCSI devices like Hard Drives and CD ROM's. This adapter cable requires that Parity be disabled and 5 volt be present on pin #26 of the SCSI device you are going to connect up to your Atari ST system. This adapter cable works with the latest versions of Atari HDX 5 or above, ExtendDOS and so on. Adapter cable only, with no software. CB102773 $75.

It's a shame that page is 'for information only'... I'd be tempted to buy a shiny new one (and I don't really need one at the moment).

That AdSCSI board looks similar to what I saw in my Protar drive... I must check - maybe I could get more up to date software (I notice the adscsi software is available on that page).
