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.
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: 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.
Summary: The Razer Onza Tournament Edition will make a great addition to anyone’s console gaming hardware, and is well worth its price tag of Rs. 3,499. With all the functions it provides or even just for its striking looks you’d be crazy not to pick one up to take your Xbox 360 or PC gaming experience to another level. All controllers are not created equal in a world where the Onza TE stands out noticeably from the rest.
Conclusion: Razer has made a strong effort in branching out to the console market with the Onza. Though more expensive than the standard XBox controller, particularly for the Tournament Edition (notably the prices are a lot closer in the US) the Onza definitely adds enough additional features and tweaks to make the extra cost worthwhile for the hardcore gamer.
Pros: Looks good, Programmable buttons very useful in many games, Thumbstick tension adjustment good to personalise response, Good rubberised grip, Cable is longer than official controller and more durable
Cons: Wired version only, Back and start buttons relocation take a little while to get used to, More expensive than official controllers, Potentially not compatible with existing peripherals
