It was £88 last month, I said that in the other thread and that hilarious guy mentioned time machines, because no one has made that joke ever. Anyway this is still a good price and being Amazon, you dont have to pay ridiculous shipping with OCUK.
not for everyone but only for true real connoisseurs looking for luxury stuff
A good price if you need it. A PSU is most efficient when moderately loaded (rather than pushing the limit or barely loaded) and even 650W is more than you would need for an overclocked high-end processor and top of the range graphics card.

If you aren't running two graphics cards and can get a quality 650W or 750W for less, buy that instead.

Bought this when it £10 cheaper last month. Great bit of kit.

A few more £100's is nothing to a connoisseur.

but platinum does not necessarily means better quality, it is only about better efficiency and I am sure that even a connoisseur does take care about expenditure if not necessary.

Better efficiency is very much aligned with quality. The efficiency gain is made by using higher grade components.

of course but we would need to sit down a write pages and pages about what is better and what is not better about someone needs. Not as simple as that and not true that all platinum PSU's are associated to the best quality, only the very expensive one of course (in theory). At this price this a genuine bargain not to be missed. Of course I also already own few platinum psu's, some very good and some just so so but in reality, is there a way to know which one performs better or lasts longer? You would know only when they die but saying so even the best of the best can die or get faulty for no apparent reason sometime.

That was always my understanding - we have 4x Corsair AX series (Seasonic P series OEM) and a handful of Corsair HX, they're all Platinum rated, seem to stay cool under high load and are heavy (which is not in itself a measurement but generally a heavy PSU has some quality stuff inside like better management and safety circuitry and bigger heatsinks). Anyway, if it's good enough for Jonnyguru, it's good enough for me! Given the option, I'll choose a lower-wattage Platinum over a higher-wattage Gold. Like you said, there is a distinct correlation between Platinum-rated and quality, you can't get the certification with low-grade components and most Platinum PSUs are tier 1 rated on those PSU lists - it's not coincidence.
