    Arrow Ultra X4 1200W Review

    It's been a while and a half since we last looked at a product from Ultra Products here at jonnyGURU.com, but the long wait ends now with the brand new Ultra X4 1200W unit. This is a unit intended to compete with some of the best high power units currently on the market. I intend to find out just how well this unit stacks up. Join me, won't you?

    I wonder if Andyson is proud of their work on this unit?

    I wonder if Andyson told Ultra this was a 1000W unit and Ultra said...ok, we'll slap a 1200W label on it.

    With the sloppy soldering I would say this is probalby even a lower watt unit tweaked to get more wattage out of it.

    I doubt this unit costs a lot to produce compared to the competition, so why the hell is Ultra charging this much for it? Must be a lot of idiots buying these things...

    At least the new cables are kinda slick. Sucks that the new 1200W unit won't do what it's rated for in the hotbox.
