I originally bought the Asterisk Ultra Cell, but they are really big where they go into the boot. And while the BOA system is cool, one of the plastic straps broke on the 2nd ride, so I returned them. They werent comfortable either.
I hardly notice the TLD Catalyst X's tho!
There are lots of different topics on this if you search. Other people have said their Ultra Cells broke.

The Pods are great in height and have very good reviews all round for the frame design but the knee cup is flimsy too thin and too far away from the knee (have read reports of it having been popped out a few times in tests even in small crashes).
Isaac & Ronus please could you tell me, if you in your experience if you think the the TLD's are too short for proper knee brace protection? - my concern is I have broken both my legs before and the left leg twice so my knee's are quite shot, also there are no stores where I live which sell any of these braces so I have to do all my research and ordering online, I am most likely going to order the TLD's I just want to know what you guys think about their height with regards to knee brace protection.
Thanks your comments are greatly appreciated.
The 2 most insightful reviews I have found so far are here:
