Hardware reviews are something that haven't featured extensively in AusGamers' history, but some of our reviewers have recently expressed interest in sharing their thoughts on the odd gaming gadget, so we're not going to stand in the way of progress!

Today nachos takes a look at the Razer Onza and Razer Onza: Tournament Editions, two third-party Xbox 360 controllers from well-known, core-gamer orientated hardware manufacturer Razer.
as a PC gamer, my preferred controller is the ever-awesome keyboard/mouse combo, but as far as console controllers go, both Onzas are the best I've used and have replaced my first-party Microsoft option for my Xbox 360.
Fine out all the business in this here review.

they look pretty good. i wonder how durability would be with all the twisting of joysticks.
is that the start buttons on the rear?
i'd still prefer wireless, much easier to avoid tripping over when i have to go for my next beer

pics are a bit dark.

I might think about getting one if I was still using standard xbox controllers, but I have that limited silver one they released with the transforming d-pad and its awwwwwwwwwesome.

I dunno, I started with a razor diamondback and after 6 months of RA3 and 4 months of Q4 CTF (as long has the online community lasted), and the cable broke. Swore never to go back. 6 years later I have a Razer Lachesis, and it's still got the worst cable in history and is finnicky as shit. Only reason it's probably not broken is i play RTS not twitch FPS these days.

This mouse was free, my logitech mx510 or whatever (which replaced the Diamondback) broke a few weeks ago. Which makes the logitech 6 years, to the diamondback <12 months.

I have two lachesis mice, they're solid but the drivers are stuffed. The mouse can stop responding and you either have to unplug it and plug back in or try older drivers. Stupid thing is that it's happened to both generations of the mice.

Though the best shit is when buy like the Razer Mamba and can't even put it together.

not sure why people complain about the quality, my mouse has been to hell and back, and is still rocking hard (1st of the kraits)

Lachesis here and the mouse pointer would jump all over the screen randomly. Went to a Microsoft X8 and no problems.

I have had a Lachesis for 3 years and it has never failed me.

In a lengthy email trail with Razer I managed to prove to them that the Lachesis had actual hardware faults (tested 3 replacements), they've sent me a Death Adder as a final replacement, and it's going strong (the new one has a much better cable by the way).

Razer products can be good, but anything that has a Razer Laser in it, do not touch. From the Copperhead to Lachesis to Imperator, they all have strange hardware problems.

That said, unless you are in demand for absolute precision from your mouse by playing a 'twitch' FPS, you probably won't even notice the difference.
