This hulking beast is part of series of hard drives codenamed Gulliver.

The first Gulliver-series drive shipped in 1974 with a capacity of 5MB, less than a single high quality MP3 track, while subsequent models could hold 10MB and 14MB.

It used a rotary actuator with one 14-inch disc. It was the first hard drive to ship more than 100,000 units, with 177,000 sold in its lifetime.
