First, I won't say "buy this" or "you should buy that". That's not the point of a review. What I will say is that I recommend you to consider this PSU when looking for a new/replacement unit, evaluating the positives and negatives that come with it.
I purchased this recently for a new computer, quality is excellent. Comes with tons of extra modular cables. Love the brand and 10 yr warranty. Still haven't received my rebate though, hope it comes soon.
This has got to be the best PSU I've ever used. Wow, the fit and finish is fantastic. The cables are beautifully wrapped, tight and solid. Stiff and sturdy. It comes with a tonne of extra cables. Just a wow PSU. Two thumbs up EVGA.

Pros Full modular 80+ Platinum sleeved and long ( for me at least) black cables quite silent packaging the smell that you experience when opening it (i love that smell that's why it's a pro for me) cable bag
Cons Price huge and heavy (Not a con but a disadvantage)

You get what you pay for. Not the best and far far away the worst. A good PSU for the eco-minded folks who don't want to spend twice as much on a Titanium efficiency from a reputable brand. I can't say much more as it does what's it's supposed to do (for now) and has all the features i was looking for. It hasn't surprised me yet so it looks it will last for a while. Works nice in my build and I'm happy for now.
Is this a good PSU? - Yes Is this the best Platinum PSU? - No, but close enough for me to consider it and buy it Is the price high when not on sale? - Yes Is it enough for high end PC gaming? - If you're not 3-was SLI/Xfire, Yes Have I had problems with it so far? - No Am I happy with my purchase? - I'm content (hasn't outperformed or under-performed, yet) Will I recommend this to my friends and family? - If it fits their requirements and needs and they have the money for it, sure, why not.
Pros beautiful quality packaging, looks solid, 10 yr warranty

Pros 750W Platinum rated Amazing cables Lots of cables SO MANY CABLES
Cons For me... nothing.
Summary This has got to be the best PSU I've ever used. Wow, the fit and finish is fantastic. The cables are beautifully wrapped, tight and solid. Stiff and sturdy. It comes with a tonne of extra cables. Just a wow PSU. Two thumbs up EVGA.
Pros - (Price-matched) Price... and a MIR! - Worked out to be cheaper than the Gold model, plus _slightly_ lower electricity costs thanks to the platinum efficiency - Fully modular design - Optional Eco mode, but it's silent to begin with (in a case with seven, low RPM fans).
Cons Cables, especially the 24-pin ATX one, are rather stiff. Worse still is that the 8-Pin EPS/ATX 12V one is too short, I had to use an extension in order to reach the top of my full sized ATX case (ATCS 840).
Summary Bought to replace a Corsair HX850, which after running 24/7 for a mere five-and-a-bit years was, I suspected, causing reboots whenever any load was put on the GPU, previously reboots were more random. I guess, computer now days need a supernova to power them. :P

Cons Mail-in rebates are a scam. The price isn't $140, it's $160 because in order to get the mail-in rebate you have to do far more effort that it's worth. By the time I got around to doing it, the program had ended (ordered March 19th, program ended March 31st).
Summary Keeping in mind the unit actually costs $20 more then what it says it does because mail-in rebates are stupid scam that no one is actually going to get back. I may have gone with this unit anyways or I may have picked a different one.
I hope Evga enjoys my $20, because they probably won't be getting any more from me.
Pros You certainly get the feeling that it's a quality product. Silent, well built, looking good, nicely packaged. I've read quite a few reviews and they were all positive (I was about to buy a Corsair CX series unknowingly, until I read that they were really cheap and living off the Corsair brand recognition - EVGA P2 series is not in the same league apparently), so I'm really glad I got this one instead, even if it's a few bucks more.
Pros Great PSU: extremely efficient, stays cool, the fully modular design allows for a clean and appealing look, provides the power needed for a unit with a liquid cooler; numerous case fans; an overclocked processor; and a high quality video card.
Summary The fully modular design is convenient, it is a reasonable price, and it is definitely one of the best PSUs ive owned.
