Razer Onza or Microsoft controller for Windows?

  1. I've been playing games for more than 12 years with KB+Mouse and have never used a controller before. Games are becoming more and more controller optimized and I have an Eyefinity setup that would give a better experience with a gamepad, so I decided to get one

    I've narrowed my options to Razer Onza TE BF3 Edition (Wired):

    And Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows :

    They both seem pretty good, but have heard very mixed views on razer products...

    Which one is better ?

    Razer products are generally overpriced, overhyped and not great quality, this is coming from personal experience. I think the premium for their products is for the aesthetics and cool factor. $60 is quite a lot to spend on a game controller...

    I've never liked the Xbox controller so I have a Logitech one which is more like the PS3 controller's shape. But that's down to personal preference I guess.
