Critical reception Reaction to Windows Ultimate Extras was mixed. While Microsoft was praised for creating a value proposition for users who purchased the most expensive edition of Windows Vista, the company was criticized for its delays during delivery of updates, perceived lack of quality of delivered updates, and a lack of transparency regarding their development. Early on, there were concerns that the features would not live up to users' expectations. The company announced several Ultimate Extras in January 2007, but only a fraction of these were released five months later.

After months without an official update since January, Microsoft released an apology for the delays, stating that it intended to ship the remaining features before the end of summer of 2007. The delays between consecutive updates and months of silence had led to speculation that the development team within the company responsible for the features had been quietly disbanded. When Microsoft announced its intentions to release the remaining Ultimate Extras and released an apology for delays, Paul Thurrott stated that the company had 'dropped the ball' with the features. Wrote that Ultimate Extras were 'probably the biggest mistake Microsoft made with Vista,' and that the company would downplay the Ultimate edition of Windows 7 as a result. Bott would later list them among his 'decade's worth of Windows mistakes.'

Microsoft was also criticized for changing the description for Ultimate Extras within the operating system. The offerings slated to be made available were initially described as 'cutting-edge programs,' 'innovative services,' and 'unique publications,' but the description for the features within the applet was later modified in Windows Vista to be more modest; this was interpreted as an attempt made by the company to avoid fulfilling prior expectations. Emil Protalinski of wrote that the Ultimate edition of Windows Vista 'would have looked just fine without the joke that is 'Ultimate Extras' and that the features were supposed to provide an incentive for consumers to purchase that edition, 'not give critics something to point and laugh at.' In the second part of his review of Windows 7, Peter Bright of Ars Technica wrote that 'the value proposition of the Ultimate Extras was nothing short of piss-poor.' Bright would later criticize Microsoft's decision not to release for Windows Vista, but would go on to state that this was still 'not as bad as the Ultimate Extras farce.' See also.
