My first experience with Ultra Products was back in 2003 when they began offering inexpensive overclock-rated memory. At the time they were still a relative newcomer to the industry and as with any fledgling company they were initially met with some skepticism among the overclocking community. Their prices were too attractive for many (me included) to pass up however, especially after rebates, and I opted to try out two sticks of their PC3500 DDR. Within six months time, their memory, sporting the coveted Winbond BH-5 chips, had easily doubled in value, and along with the X-Connect power supply, firmly established the Ultra brand name among computer enthusiasts everywhere.
Now more than three years later, Ultra has diversified, carrying over a dozen different product lines including cases and accessories, removable storage, cooling, power and wireless devices. Each product line offers several different models to choose from. It is impressive to see this small Ohio-based company come so far in such a short amount of time. Today I have the opportunity to try out one of their latest computer cases, the Ultra Grid.
The Ultra Grid comes in a full color retail box covered in pictures of the product. It appears from the background image that the case was named for this wire mesh "grid". The reverse side details specifications and features.
