It doesn't look to bad. It's got a nice effeciency rating at nominal temps (79% @ 30c). I'd go for it.

Some people had bad experience with ultra psu. i on the other hand trust ultra psu's i have 2 ultra x connect 1 is about 1 yr and half now, 2nd is 3 months and so far so good. but if u really ask me i think that is expenssive compare to newegg. u can get the xfx from newegg at 309.00 minus 20 bucks rebate and the psu from xoxide for 98.99 if u do the math u'll save 200 bucks or so

Well, I'm getting one for Christmas, and I've already read plenty of good things about it. You can't always go by the bad reviews, because, think about it. For the most part, only people with problems are going to make a big rant. I'm sure it's working great for many people, and only a small percentage have problems.

Woah, hold on here. I just went through an Ultra PSU, and it blew up on me a few months after the warranty was over.

Now I have a Sunbeam Nuuo 550; perfect.

Think of it this way: Go for a PSu that has no negative reviews; the Sunbeam is all praise; never heard a single bad thing said about it that will hurt the performance. The Ultra...it's rather a foreign company, and after my experience...it is best to avoid Ultra products. And esp. their RAM.

I think it is true about at least a quarter of the Ultra PSUs end up failing. In maximum PC they tried two and the first had a burnt plastic smell to it. The second one they tried most of the rails were out of spec. Something like 12.6X volts on the 12 volt rail. With lots of fluctuations.

Here on the site we have had several reports on them being bad. I am thinking of buying a couple just to see if i can prove this.

I've been reading reviews, and apparently this is the 2nd generation of X-Finity's. Most of the reviews acknowledge that the X-Connects and first gen X-Finity's were iffy, and that the problems were fixed, and the x-finity is great. Here are some:
