    In this video game hardware review, we look at one of the hottest new controller's on the market - Razer's Onza TE. Will this titan of technology up your gaming technique, or is it destined for remote control hell? Only one way to find out. Read this gaming peripheral article now!

    I've used many controllers in my life, going all the way back to the NES Max, Atari Paddles, and the hand-destroying Centipede arcade ball (okay, so maybe those aren't all official names, but you know the ones I'm talking about). Remember that gigantic monstrosity for the original Nintendo with buttons the size of a silver dollar? How bout the Power Glove? Yes, I know: too many late nights watching Fred Savage in the Wizard.

    I also have seen many gamers point the figure at fault controllers, blaming them for their less than flawless victories. Sometimes, they are right. More often than not, they just lack the skills to pay said bills.

    Razer's Onza TE seeks to take the blame out of the game by bringing about one of the most comfortable, light-weight controllers for the X-box on the market today.

    Before I delve into the greatness that is this remote, I have to point out a glaring flaw in its design: it's wired. Why, in this day and age, would you make a wired remote? Because the big wig's at Microsoft refuse to let other companies use its wireless technology. You'll still have a solid fifteen feet to play with, but just be aware that you are still anchored to your system.

    The cost of the controller is not too bad - $50. It is a little higher than I would want to pay for a wired remote, but think of all the money you will save in batteries (I'm trying to see the silver lining here folks).

    From a play perspective, this remote is awesome. It doesn't weigh a ton, the button spacing is nice and have a nice feel to them when you press down, and it has a nice rubber grip for those intense, sweaty hand moments. If you are like me and suffer from gamer-cramp hand, you'll also enoy the skinnier design.

    The Onza TE is made for gamers that like to customize their remotes. It sports two different buttons that you can map however you like, and you can easily adjust the torque on the analog sticks.

    Overall I would give this guy a solid 4 out of 5. I usually have an issue with X-Box controllers, particularly in the size and weight department, but this one was a solid fit. It's not as comfortable as a Playstation remote, but it is pretty close. If you like the feel or normal X-box remotes, you'll enjoy this one for sure. I would say it is a solid 5 out of 5, but the wired part makes me cringe. Having a dog in the house that likes dangly things (wires people), makes it a hard limitation to accept.

    Have you tried this controller yet? Have an opinion on it you would like to share or some further insight? Suggestions for other controllers? If so, drop me a line in the comment section.
