Your spoiled. The first 5.25 inch Hard drive was the ST-506 was 5MB from Seagate and was only $1500 in 1980.
I like opening those old HDs, a lot times they even had the errors marked on a piece of paper taped to the drive itself. I have never found a 5MB one but I have seen quite a few of the ST-412 which was a 10MB HD from Seagate.
