Astro C40 TR is it the Razer Raiju Killer

We are big fans of Razer here at Gamer-Plus and I personally have been using the Razer Raiju controller for the last year. However, this is the 3rd one I have had in a year and it is always the same issue of left stick drift.

This is caused me no end of frustration and the one solution Razer gives is a firmware update (never solves it) or to send for a replacement. Well after 3 faulty controllers, I am back on the standard PS4 controller. Even the new Raiju TE and ultimate reportedly have the same faults and for £200 I would expect more.

So with Astro C40 TR hitting the market in the US is it now that we have a serious contender in the $200 price mark.

Astro C40 TR Overview

Durable and serviceable, the C40 TR Controller features swappable, replaceable analog stick and D-Pad modules as well as remappable rear buttons, allowing for multiple configurations and increased speed and accuracy for any playstyle and any genre.

Everything on paper reads this is a contender with its online software for configuration, firmware updates etc.

However it only has 2 additional buttons compared to the Razer’s 4 and lack of audio controls will slightly hinder the average user.

But that said I would love to get my hands on this and give it a full test.
