LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0

I'm thinking of buying LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 external hard drive from Amazon as it's a lot cheaper than buying it here in Australia even with the delivery cost.
You can check it out here
I can't see there being an issue buying it from the USA as it's powered by a USB cable, but I just wanted to make sure that there shouldn't be an issue and it will work perfectly here in Australia?
I guess though the warranty wont be valid though.

As far as the debate over 2.5" notebook HDDs vs 3.5" "desktop" HDDs (both in portable enclosures) goes, I personally prefer the 2.5" drives. Markedly slower, but significantly more portable, and I've found (noting this to be totally anecdotal as I say it; I have no method of proving this empirically) the 2.5" drives to be more robust and durable. I've had more desktop-grade hard drives die on me, by far.
