Steer well clear of Ultra Edit - not because it's a bad editor (it's not) but because it works out extremely expensive over time as they have a track record of pumping out "major" new versions every year and each time there is an upgrade price!

IMHO, the best large file editors:
Freeware: Emacs or VIM depending on your religion
Shareware: 010 Editor http://www.sweetscape.com/010editor/

BTW, I'm a long time TSE Pro user myself!
