I'm weary of anything where I get "more" for less. I've also not heard much about the quality of EVGA PSU's but have heard good things about NZXT and Seasonic.
With PSUs, it's not really possible to go by brand names because with the exception of SeaSonic, the companies mentioned so far don't make their own PSUs. What's more, not all of the PSUs from one brand are the same in terms of quality. Some brands have such a wide range that they range from complete junkers all the way to PSUs that are actually pretty nice. So, it's risky to go by brand names - especially without the guidance of someone who knows which PSUs are bad and which ones are good. Of course, it's not so black and white as just "bad" and "good" either. There's pretty much a full spectrum of colors, so to speak.
I don't know how good or bad the EVGA SuperNOVA series is in this wattage range, but I know that their 1500W is an extremely impressive unit. So, I like to assume that all of the SuperNOVA series are very high-end. If this is the case, then it would be a far better choice than any of the others you looked at so far. It very well could be the case too because they are on the recommended list of power supplies:
Although, the 750B is not on this list for some reason. Either it's not a good unit, or it's just so new that it hasn't been added to the list.
If I'm not mistaken, then I think that the HALE82 is a SeaSonic S12II inside. Either that, or it's based on a platform that's very similar. I can't quite remember. The SeaSonic M12II is basically a modular S12II (it's not perfectly identical inside, but it's close enough).
What store(s) are you ordering from?
