These are expensive. Platinum-rated units from 550W to 750W from competitors (Antec, EVGA, Corsair, Seasonic, Enermax, etc.) are all less expensive than these.

Direct comparison: EVGA's SuperNOVA P2 650W is $120, and the 750W is $150 (pre-rebate) at Newegg.com. (With rebate, they are $100 and $120, respectively.) Antec's EA-Platinum units are even cheaper, but they are not modular.

Agree with bandit, this is a nice PSU and I'd love to own it, it's just hard to justify buying it for 50$ more than other top of the line PSU's like supernova P2's

But they are much more reliable than those. be quiet pretty much has the reliability Enermax had before they ditched their own production facility.
I dont know about you, but I rather pay some more money for a much better (much more reliable and quieter) fan and general reliability that has no issues with 10 years, than some crap that goes legs up after a few years, the fan becomes loud every few months and you have to deal with coil whining.
A DP Pro 11 is pretty much the best PSU you can get right now.

Not a fan of sub 850s having multiple 12v rails. Maybe these will turn out better, hopefully they do considering the price. As others have pointed out, it's highly difficult to justify spending $150 on a 550w unit

1. That is the MSRP. Real sale prices will be much cheaper.
2. There are no issues with multi rail PSUs whatsoever. Multi rail has been standard for years, only lately some smart people thought it would be fun to make single rail a marketing thing. Why? Because single rail PSUs are actually much cheaper to produce.
3. This PSU can actually be switched to single rail with an included switch for the PC case. You can see it on one of the pictures.
