Default Buying Imports from Amazon. Good/Bad?

I used to grab "import" soundtracks from local comic book stores. After I joined VGMdb, it turned out these stores dealt exclusively in bootlegs, so the other day I bought my first CD using the information provided here to make sure it was a legitimate copy. But I didn't get it from Play-Asia or CDJapan: I tested my luck with a seller on Amazon, who were selling a copy of the CD with "[IMPORT]" in the listing title and some promising liner info.

When the CD arrived, it was in pristine condition and had ALL of the expected and proper copyright marks and materials. So my question is, aside from a slightly higher price tag, are there any drawbacks to purchasing from Amazon rather than grabbing an import directly from Play-Asia or CDJapan?
