Can a WD My Passport Ultra be powered by a Mediasonic HW180STB-Y18 or is a separate powered hub required to ensure that the Mediasonic unit won't be damaged? Please advise. Thank you.

I'm not sure. Using that drive with the Raspberri Pi, it requires at minimum a 2A 5V Power Supply [a good quality one]. I would think that drive would burn out the homeworx in not too long a time if used without a separate power hub
