Razer Sabertooth Elite Gaming Controller for Xbox 360
Velvety to the touch smooth, MECHANICAL BUTTONS!
Great must have for PC and XBOX owners, very grippy and comfortable, absolutely no hand fatigue and mechanical buttons click resposively for an unbelievably precise feel! If you can afford this luxury $80 bucks is a samall fee to pay for fullly programmable macros and hot keys, Razer has packed so many winning features here!!
What can I say I found it to be so uncomfortable. I also thought the Razor Onza was much better. I really love the Xbox360 and then the Razor Onza.
I bought this after returning a piece of junk Fus1on Tournament controller that failed within 2 weeks. The Razer is standing up with no issues but, it is a little bit uncomfortable in adult sized hands. When will someone come up with a larger diameter grip?
First Hands-on (limited) Impression
So, Fedex just delivered my Razer Sabertooth controller. I'm at work right now so I cant fully test it's performance yet (hence the reason I gave it only a 6 on Performance). But I CAN tell you that right off the bat, it is the best ergonomically designed controller I've ever held. It fits perfectly in my hands. The best way I can describe it is that it feels like the controller is gripping my hands rather than my hand gripping the controller. I know, it's crazy, but true.
It kind of feels slighly smaller than a standard MS 360 controller and slightly lighter. It does however, feel sturdy. Definitely NOT cheaply made. The unscrewable, 4pin, bradded cable and usb cord are nice aswell.
The entire controller has this rubberized outer coating that adds a really nice and grippy feel, which I really like. The buttons feel near-perfectly placed and easily/quickly accessible to each one my fingers.
The A,B,X,Y buttons are shorter than those of the standard 360 controller and have a slight click to them which makes pressing them feel quicker and more definite. No more spongy 360 buttons that often fail to respond for me.
The D-pad is much better, as each directional button is seperate and smaller than those on the Onza (which were a complete mess). Think: Playstation D-pad. No more inaccurate 360 mush pad.
So far, I'm very pleased with the feel and appearance of the Sabertooth. Sabertooth's design team deserves high marks for this one.
Next, comes the real test -- customizing the button/scheme scheme and, sensativity and tension, and testing the Sabertooth's responsiveness/performance while rocking some BF3 later tonight.
