I like xbox wired controllers just because they work great for the PC.

Wired controller plus ebay equals double-fail.

I've never actually used one but I've heard that Onza controllers have repaid response buttons.

@bmason3604: That depends on whether or not the controller is licensed by Microsoft. I believe that Onza is but I just want to make it clear that not all wired 360 controllers work on PC.

@kwenlu: Yes it does work with PC's. My friend showed me playing Tera using his instead of his keyboard/mouse. It worked surprisingly well, although it had a controller mode designed for that sort of thing.

@kwenlu: It doesn't have turbo or anything if that's what you're asking. The buttons are clicky instead of the normal 360 fare. Think of clicking your mouse button rather than pushing what was once described as "pressing a button into a pile of mashed potatoes." It takes some getting used to but I could never go back now.

@djp519: Not sure what's wrong with ebay but wired controllers have no response delay which can be up to several milliseconds with some wireless controllers, and in these shooting games (that this is designed primarily for) it's all about response time. The wire is really long so it's not an issue unless you like to game from your bathroom.

I bought one of these off of newegg when the razer site was out of stock all the time for $50 and it was totally worth it.

@kwenlu: Ran out of characters, but the two custom buttons are basically remappings of any other key on the controller, conveniently located on the shoulder of the controller. For example on my controller I have the right one mapped to "A" to jump in Halo (or I change it depending on what game I'm playing), and my left one is for pressing in the left stick. MLG banned the controller because their sponsor was Mad Catz (a rival company making their own professional gaming controller). There was slight moral debate about having the extra shoulder buttons to hit harder-to-reach buttons more easily, but it's still just a remapping of one button, as opposed to being able to program like some combos into it or something.

@briack: I bought one of these just now.. will it work on PC?

@necrom23: Yes. Some games will work better than others depending on the type of support they have, but out of the box you can plug it into your computer. No drivers or software required, all you need is a USB port (I'm assuming it's designed for USB 2.0, it's worked fine with mine. I don't have any USB 3.0 to try, but they would at least be backwards compatible)

In for one, these things are neat. I frowned upon wired controllers for the longest time til I realized that... my wireless controller spends most of it's time sitting there plugged in while I watch Netflix (So I can watch the next episode of something without having to wait for the controller to turn back on :P)

Thanks, OP!

@bmason3604: A lot of games (on the pc) are not programmed to accept a game pad. Although this controller will most likely work on the pc, many games will require tinkering and possible coding to get to work.

@djp519: Microsoft owns the copyright to their wireless signal that the xbox recieves. Thus every controller made by a different company is wired... however Razer is a very reputable company. Im not the biggest fan of this product, however this is a great price for it. It allows button remapping, great abxy buttons (they are flat and feel like a mouse click), analog sticks that you can adjust the resistance, and other stuff that makes it more than your average xbox controller.

I didn't care to look through most of the comments to this point, but I believe that this is a seller refurbish of a controller that was known to have fairly significant issues. I am a fan of Razer products but from what I have heard in regards to this controller it is not as good as the basic Microsoft wired controller. I love my 360 controller for my pc and would recommend someone looking for a wired 360 controller go that route.

Look at the amazon reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Onza-tournament-Xbox-360/dp/B004DTU0W2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Might be worth the risk at 24 dollars, but then again if it breaks then you are probably out of luck.
