Great Controller for FPS Games
20 September 2014
Summary: I bought this specifically to help me play better in FPS games like Call of Duty, and I really believe it worked. The joysticks, with its tension control, allowed me to raise the sensitivity on the game while maintaining precise movement when turning corners or aiming down sights. It really shined in moments when I had to turn around quickly after hearing enemy footsteps behind me.
Summary: I am not a gaming elitist but this controller is on par with the horrid and cheap MadCatz controllers of the N64 era. Pros: -Nice texture (it feels better than most plastic controllers) -2 of the bumper buttons can be remapped (but only to the other buttons, i.e. you can set the 2 extra bumpers to perform the same actions as clicking the analog sticks) Cons: - Analog sticks have horrible dead-zone, meaning that sometimes when my controller is tilted, the analog stick...
Summary: I got this because I was looking for a upgraded controller. The only thing that was better about this one is the A,B,X,Y buttons. The controller failled within one week of use, one of the joysticks wouldn't register being moved to the left. Would not buy again, I will stick to the standard 360 controllers.
Summary: Don't waste your money. This thing has a known defect. Left thumb stick gets stuck in the down position. I used it a handful of times, mostly kept it in closet before it broke. Razer wouldn't do anything about it because warranty expired. garbage.
Summary: Save your money, I waited over six months to review this to get a fair assessment of the product. The thumb sticks quickly wore down from normal use. I ordered two different units and both had the left trigger fail to respond after awhile. The units did not improve the gaming experience at all, which was the point of getting them. The original XBOX controllers are fair better than these. Not impressed at all with with controller.
Summary: The controller is great while it lasts. I liked the design of the d-pad, and the design of the triggers. However, it has pretty cheap build quality that results in various issues with the controller, especially with the analog sticks. I had mine for a month and the left analag stick started acting up, drifting to the left even when i was tilting it in other directions. I know I'm not the only one as I've read about these issues happening to a LOT of other people. Cheap.
Summary: I had 3 or 4 of these until I just gave up. They'd last for a few months until the sticks started to drift badly, which is a shame because otherwise these are easily the best controllers I've ever used. It's comfortable, precise and feels good in your hand while it lasts. I hope Razer simply fixes the stick issue because then this controller would be truly unmatched.
Summary: I would like to start by saying that if you really want to get this controller, get it a a brick and mortar store and not online as this will make exchanging it for a new one easier once it inevitably breaks. The Razer Onza would be the best wired controller I've used if it was not for the horrible quality control that Razer has for this product.
Button feedback feels cheap, unit itself feels cheap

Summary: I knew I had a problem the second I took this out of the box. I heard some tiny piece of plastic rattling around inside the unit, like something had been dislodged. Then I got around to actually fiddling with the buttons, and they just feel so remarkably cheap. I'm returning this and getting the Microsoft version.
