Reviews and Problems with Razer Onza Tournament Edition
Showing 1-10 of 15
not as good as it would seem
16 April 2012
Summary: This controller is defiantly game specific.. it's only great for some games that is. For something like rapid gun fire, the trigger has to be pushed much farther in than regular xbox controllers.. and this means you can't shoot as fast..so for me it's not so great and returned it.
Ultimately feels like a cheap 3rd party controller.

Summary: For a controller with an MSRP higher than a standard Microsoft controller, you would think you would get something at least the same quality, but unfortunately this controller feels quite cheap and while it does a few things right, it gets most of them wrong. First off, this is a wired controller. I personally dont mind about this since you dont have to worry about batteries dying on you.
Summary: So after much research, I decided to buy this and give it a try. I mostly wanted a controller that would work well for Mortal Kombat (ie individual buttons for the dpad and quick response buttons). I received the controller, played for a day or so in multiple games including Mortal Kombat, and it just didn't feel right. I had the following problems: The dpad buttons were very very stiff.
Summary: The controller is great on paper. Actually, it was fantastic when it worked. My first controller started having problem after 2 days of using it. The right joystiq would move by itself when I'm playing black op. I sent it back in for a replacement. The 2nd one worked great.....except the microphone jack is broken and I can't talk to or hear anyone. So I'll put off buying this for now until they can improve the quality for this controller.
Summary: The Razer Onza Tournament Edition Gaming Controller takes a little bit of getting used to when one is familiar with a regular Xbox controller. Unfortunately I never got an opportunity to get used to the controller. I ordered two and both had manufacturing defects. On the first controller, when I clicked the left thumbstick down, it didn't register a command. In video games like Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops, clicking the left thumbstick down allows the player to run.
Summary: What I found after several days of use Pros Lighter weight quicker button response Cons The finish feels gross joy stick click response unreliable at best (my left didn't work at all) MFB and the bumper are to close together and leveled, makes it near impossible to hit one without the other quickly Edges on the upper side of the bumper and around the joystick are deceptively sharp. After just a few mins of use a ring of dust and a groove appeared around the joysticks.
Summary: The Good: -Rubberized surface is comfortable. -Super long cord is nice. -XYAB button feel like mouse clicker buttons and generally work very well. -Mappable shoulder buttons are a great idea. -Slightly longer thumb sticks are better for precision. The Bad: -The adjustable tension on the sticks is not very good (cool idea; poorly implemented). -Triggers are too long and are not comfortable at all.
Summary: I've had the Razer for over a week now. My experience is not without frustration. When the Onza arrived it was very stylish and sleek. You can feel the difference the rubber coating makes. And it pretty much conforms to your hands. So on look and feel, the Onza is candy. My first game I noticed the controller had a turn slow problem, as in it would turn fine on direction but then would slow down when going the other way.
Would be great if it didn't break within 3 months.

Summary: I bought the Razer Onza Tournament Edition in September 2012. I have other Razer products and have always been satisfied so I decided to pick this up. Out of the box, this is a great controller. It feels and looks great. Nice thick braided cable and backlit A-B-X-Y buttons, a very stylish controller. Fits well in the hands as well. During gameplay, it is very responsive. It really has a great feel to it. So why am I unhappy with this product and rating it only two stars?
Summary: I purchased this when it was on sale for $41.98 and I'm glad I did. I'd be really worried if I had of spent more. It has a very nice texture, is extremely lightweight. It has a long cord and the headset jack is very snug, much better than the poorly designed jacks on the official Microsoft products. It works well for the Xbox and PC games I've played using it so far. Now for the other side of the coin, it feels really flimsy.
