Expensive? They are great in PS. Probably elsewhere too.

And less than half the price of yet other good capacitors

In comparison to Panasonic HA per example i would say they are easily worth several times the price. Entirely subjective of course.

Default nichicon nr and nt

http://www.nichicon.co.jp/english/products/pdf/e-nr.pdf here we can see that nichicon nr has more ripple current than kg series..and also has long life..nichicon nr and nt series are cheaper than kg series..so why we pay more ?

Often this is the premium for better sound. How this relates to measurable parameters is anyone's guess.
