My order was placed February 2 and it says the delivery date is between Feb 23, and March 26, Since today is Feb 26 it is already past the first delivery date, so I hope it will be shipping soon and arriving early or mid March. I am ordering my new HDTV and I want to get it soon, but in the mean time I am currently using the new silver d-pad controller, which is very good, but I do not think it will be as good of quality as this Onza. Plus I love how it is wired, only other thing is that I wish it came in silver to match the Halo Reach slim console.
This is the email I get from Razer on Thursday. Preorders from their site are backed up for at least three weeks. They're really bad a keeping their release date. Hello jacob,
Thank you for pre-ordering the Razer Onza Tournament Edition (TE).
As you're reading this, the Onza TEs are on their way over to our warehouses and are expected to start shipping out soon.
However, demand for the Razer Onza TE has been nothing short of mind-blowing, and we will have to fulfill pre-orders in systematic batches, shipping as many as we can every single day. Please bear with us while that happens, we guarantee your Razer Onza TE will be in as soon as humanely possible without us breaking out the whips on our warehouse minions (barely).
A shipment notification with tracking* information will be emailed to you as soon as your order is shipped. We expect all pre-orders to be shipped out within the next 3 weeks.
If you'd like to cancel your order, please email our customer care team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get it sorted out.
Thank you for shopping with us.
*Tracking information only available if you selected a shipping method with tracking.
Fantastic news, I'm just waiting for the first few reviews to come in before I finally order one. I really hope this pad is as good as we all want it to be.
I'm just still worried about dead zones (as said in the other thread) it's the one thing that's stopping me from ordering it right now, I know I've already asked in that other thread but still, please as soon as you know how good the sticks are can you let us know?
Wish I had to money to preorder this controller earlier. Says I'll be getting it between March 15th-March 22nd. Well as long as I get it then it's ok. Can't wait to get it and try it out on Crysis 2 when it comes out
Not sure what the deal is, but I received a new email today from Amazon stating I will not be receiving the controller until March 21-23. I wonder if anyone's order actually shipped. I ordered mine on February 2nd.
Ordered mine Feb 4 and still says Feb 25th to March 30.
Didn't get that email TiKiMaN1.. at least not yet. So you ordered from Razer and Amazon? If you get yours today would you post your impressions? Even though I just picked up the new fight pad, I'm really curious how the dpad (the way it's setup as independent buttons) functions for fighting games where you do quarter circle sweeps.
The couple of reviews I've seen focuses on the buttons and analogs (and rightfully so).
Mine says delivery estimate March 4th-9th...somehow I doubt that but I don't blame Amazon it's Razer who refuses to give any kind of official release date, they have been dangling these controllers in front of us for almost a year and we still have nothing official. Website for these still just say pre-orders sold out available in 4 weeks but that hasn't even change in weeks now :-/
So we could all get them next week or 3 months from now with the way Razer is though hopefully sooner than later.
I just had something odd happen. I signed up for Amazon Prime, and went in to change my shipping method on the onza TE. It said the *shipping* estimate was March 17-April 18. I then changed from 2 day shipping, to next day shipping and the product details changed to *delivery* estimate March 8-March 15. Not sure if 1 day counts for a month on Amazon, or if they are favoring Prime members, but I went from probably not seeing it till April, to possibly having it this week. Either way, I'll take it. Good luck to everyone else who's waiting.
That is just running off Amazon's estimate I don't even believe they have any idea when they will have stock just what Razer is telling them, I change my shipping a couple weeks back to two day shipping went from March 10-April 15 or something like that to March 4-9 and I still have no sign of shipping any time soon so don't count on that shipping change to help you any Noah, just thought I'd let you know.
Just to update you guys on the lastest from Amazon on this I got an email this morning that pushed back my delivery which was schedule for at the latest tomorrow to March 23-29, anyone else get a notice like this from Amazon?
I just ordered one for myself and the delivery date says March 23, 2011 - March 29, 2011. Amazon is just guessing at this point when these will arrive. Not their fault though because it seems razor themselves has no clue when these will be available.
