Question Opinion on Xion Supernova SLi 600W Modular

I am new to these forums and decided this would be the best place to get educated opinions on my PSU purchase as I have seen SKYMTL post his reviews on the NCIX forums.

I am shopping around for a PSU, but am unsure where to go in terms of power, cable length and modular. I have read a previous post in here in regards to the Mushkin XP-650 which would satisfy my needs for a PSU. However, I also came across the PSU which is titled in the description.

Unfortunately, there are very few reviews (I only found one at Driverheaven) to give detailed specs and actual numbers to how well it performs. All I can go by is the user reviews I find from such sites as Newegg and Tigerdirect which all say that this is a good PSU. It looks fantastic, but I know you cannot base how well a PSU works just by how it looks.

Regardless, here is the detailed specs of the Xion Supernova 600w:
