True for disks. The electronics are 5V, but the engine normally is
12V. But I have never encountered anything with less then 5V, so worst
case on 5V is that it does not work.
But of cause always double check! ;-)

I have my homerun on 5V and my modem/router on 12V connected to my
server. Everything else is connected to two old HD/tape cases on 5V or
12V. They contain a light weight standard power unit. Has been running
without a glitch for over a year.
