How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Razer's successor to the highly customizable Onza controller, the Sabertooth not only improves on everything that wasn't quite working with the previous model (like the difficult to reach triggers and unimpressive D-pad), but it's back with better ergonomics, four more programmable buttons on rear rocking switches (bringing the total to six), and a freaking embedded display with two profiles. (Why only two and not, say, ten? We don't know.) Re-learning your control layouts with an arsenal of customizable buttons definitely takes some time, but this is the first controller that truly delivers on the FPS holy grail: never again will you need to take your thumbs off the sticks in the heat of battle. Unfortunately, there's no wireless version of the Sabertooth so you'll be tethered, and at $80 it costs up to twice as much as cheaper Xbox controllers. But if you take your gaming seriously, you need to take a serious look at this controller. Dismissed, noobs!
