I bought the Arlo Pro for Christmas gifts at Costco thinking I was getting the latest and greatest.  Had them installed for 3 weeks and now Arlo comes out with the new 4k Ultra making my expensive purchase completely obsolete.  To add insult to injury the system is not even backward compatible?  I spent a lot of money for these systems and paid top dollar for more add-on cameras.  I feel like I have been taken advantage of by Arlo and its retailers.  Anyone else fall into the same trap that I did?

To be fair, the Ultras were announced back in Oct/Nov of '18


For cost vs value, the Pros are pretty good either way

To be really fair, the average consumer like myself is buying what is in the store at Christmas time.  I don't give IOUs for Christmas gifts.  Now it looks like my gifts were just hand-me-downs and inventory clearance rather than fresh products with up-to-date technology.  The timing was poor.  Arlo couldnt have pushed these 4k Ultras out 1 month ahead in time for the biggest shopping days of the year(Christmas) !?  I believe this was a poor marketing decision by the company, and they should hear about it.
