Ultimate compound is not a wax, but a compound. used to remove scratches and swirls.

Meguiars #7 is a glaze, which gives ZERO protection. Think of it as "makeup for cars"

It will fill in light scratching and swirls for about a day, after that, it breaks down and wears off.

Turtle wax in general is junk.

NXT IS a hybred paint sealant. It is a combination of man made polymers, as well as natural carnuba. You NEED to let it cure on the paint for about 15 to 30 minutes before wiping the excess away. It takes that length of time for the polymers to bond to the surface of the paint. A wipe on, wipe off really wont get you much as far as long lasting protection.
