    That is nearly twice the price I paid for my Enermax NAXN 750W(Compared to the Platimax 750W). While I recognise the increase in quality and efficiency I wouldn't be able to justify an extra £80 for it.

    My current PSU should last me a long time, the overhead I have to work with should allow for lots of overclocking and dual graphics setups for the foreseeable future.

    £159.90 for a 500W PSU, no matter how efficient it is, is asking a too much

    Enermax launch a platipus, a rare beast and at that price unlikely to be seen in the wild very often

    Look, Platinum series is not aimed at normal users. It is purely targeted at geeks and extreme OC-ers. Market where high price is NOT an issue.

    It's a beautiful looking PSU. The modular design appeals to me, but it would be a shame to conceal it in a HTPC case!

    Hey man, call me a geek or extreme OC-er, but that 1500w platinum would be sweet, and it would probably last a lifetime!
