Pros:

Solid Construction: Nice and heavy, what you'd expect from a nicer power supply.

Efficiency: It's an 80+ Platinum, you're getting 90%+ efficiency out of this unit. I personally used a Kill-a-Watt to measure old supply vs. this new one and got a solid 18% wattage reduction at low, medium, and high load on my system. Idle went from 123 to 100, medium load from 204 to 167, and heavy load from 330 to 270. Though those we're scientific measurements so your mileage may vary a bit.

Overall, though, I'm very pleased with it.

Cons:

Long enclosure with large modular connectors:

I have a blowhole fan in the middle of the top of my case. With the length of the supply and how large the modular connectors are at the back of the unit I can't use the top row of 3 receptacles. It's not a problem for me, I'm only using 2 anyway, but it could be a problem for others.

Other Thoughts:

There have been a couple of complaints I'd like to comment on...

The hardwired cables are what you're going to need in most modern systems: a 20+4 motherboard connector, a 4+4 CPU connector, and 2 PCI-E connectors. I needed all of them and the only thing you might not need are the PCI-E connectors, but if you're dropping this kind of money on a supply you probably have a GPU that needs it.

The modular connectors to the power supply are pretty easy to get in and somewhat difficult to get out. You're not going to be taking cables out very often and you want a solid connection. So, it seems to me, that it's perfectly reasonable.
