Yes, Ultra is not good. They are for looks, the first ones to have the modular design. Is the modular design what you like? Antec and OCZ both have some good looking modular ones, I have the OCZ Modstream 520W, and it is super sexy. Not to mention it is OCZ, so it is of some of the highest quality.

Ultra is made by a generic Chinese company with generic Chinese capacitators. They are known to die within a few months of use. As mentioned, you would be better off with choosing a different route
