Summary: Maximum PC, Wired, TechRadar.com, IGN.com, HardwareHeaven.com and GamingShogun.com all provide decent reviews of the Razer Onza Tournament edition that aren't overly long, but are based on hands-on testing and convey all the highlights and lowlights of the device. TechRadar.com also conducts a review of the best PC gamepads and the Razer controller comes out on top. Users weigh in with their opinions on Amazon.com.
Pros: Long, precise analog sticks with tension control, Two extra, mappable shoulder buttons, Backlit, responsive buttons, Non-slip surface, Relatively inexpensive
Cons: Some critics dislike the redesigned D-pad, No wireless option, Several reports of malfunctioning units
Excerpt: If first impressions made the review, the Razer Onza would win multiple awards. The box, the controller itself, the buttons; it is all pure quality. But sinking teeth into it, I don't think it is all what it's cracked up to be. Because I cover peripherals, I get to have my hands dirty in all sorts of different quality products. It's a blessing and a curse, as it becomes hard to pick and choose and it comes down to just a few features that can truly define a product.
Razer Onza Xbox Controller Offers Gripping Gameplay
29 August 2011
Excerpt: Inventing excuses after losing, dying, or in general just playing like crap is a time-honored tradition among gamers. We’ve heard them all — teammates who don’t pull their own weight, cheaters, tons of lag, screen glare, and worst of all, faulty or unresponsive controllers. So here’s the bad news: Razer’s Onza TE will make covering up your ineptitude with hardware-based justifications even less tenable. But don’t panic.
Pros: Fantastic ergonomics and balanced heft. Mechanical switches under ABXY make for some great button mashing action. Super long 15-foot cable. PC compatible. Backlit buttons perfect for darkroom gaming. D-pad is divided into four distinct sections, giving you better control and accuracy in fighting games.
Cons: Slightly awkward placement of remapped “start” and “back” buttons.
Conclusion: To sum it up informally, Razer’s Onza TE is simply awesome. Razer listened to gamers once again, and again we have a superior alternative product in the overly populated sub-par peripheral market. The adjustable sticks won us over with ease. The option to adjust analog tension on the fly was a much-needed feature in today’s market. After using the Onza TE for weeks now, we really don’t think we could go back to a normal 360 controller.
Conclusion: The Onza Tournament Edition controller achieves what it sets out to do, improve on the standard Microsoft version and enhance our gaming. Its great performance when playing mixed with some excellent features means we have a very impressive product and one which combined with the
Conclusion: I have two simple complains with the Razer Onza, both of which are cosmetic in nature. Unlike a regular Xbox 360 controller that has the Guide button in a nice metal finish and glowing green plastic underneath, the Razer Onza simply has a plastic cover under which there seems to be a paper print of the Guide button. This gives it an incredibly cheap look.
Excerpt: There has been a definite shift in PC gaming in recent times. For a while a PC game couldn't hold its head up if it didn't require some esoteric piece of equipment to play, have a keyboard overlay, and plenty of time in the library spent studying the manual.
