Does not live up to the hype
7 August 2013
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Not even a year, in fact not even 6 months and I can't run properly in Black Ops 2..... Seriously this product is rubbish if it can't handle the ever so often long hours of gaming! Poorly constructed especially triggers.
Summary: I want to love the Onza. The face buttons feel and responsiveness alone are reasons why this controller retains a decent rating in my book. However, the triggers are poorly constructed, and on the three Onzas we've had, the triggers are the first to go.
Summary: Alright, so here's the skinny; I purchased this so that I could play console oriented (Dark Souls, the Assassin's Creed games, ect.) and racing games. Within a few weeks, the right stick started acting up. Turns out, this is a flaw in the design. Many others are having this issue.
Summary: The controller is great all over. It feels good in the hand, light, and the cord is good. the D-pad seemed a little off for shooters but good for fighting games, the control stick took a little getting used to after using regular Xbox controllers for so long but when I got past that it was great.
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.
Summary: I pre-ordered my Onza at launch. After some supply issues it came in. Within around 3 days of play, the right stick started jumping to the side if I'd move it in a direction slightly. I called up Razer, got an RMA and got a replacement in short order. The SAME THING happened to my second controller.
