Let me level with you.
When I began to stream roughly a year ago, the Elgato name was often thrown around in the international streaming scene. Locally, not as much, largely because of the lack of availability here. As 2018 progressed, we had rumours of Elgato sneaking into our market, and my interest piqued past the expectation I had of "it's just a glorified macro deck for a streamer".
When I got the first glimpse of the Elgato's sitting at Nexus Hub, the butterflies invaded my tummy. When the Stream Deck Mini and HD60 S arrived, I couldn't wait to get home and open the boxes like a little girl at Christmas. I was far from disappointed.
The Stream Deck Mini blew me away.
I knew what its purpose was, but I questioned how it would manage with just these six buttons, especially when compared to the original Stream Deck's 15. It wasn't long until I realised how powerful these little buttons were.
The Hard Tech Specs:
The Elgato Stream Deck Mini is triangular in shape, coming in at 8½ cm by 6 cm by 4 cm. The compact size makes it a cozy addition to the desk, and it's small enough to fit snuggly under my monitor without affecting the difficulty to reach and hit the right target - I mean, button.
However, unlike my keyboard, the Stream Deck Mini still tends to move a little on my desk when I do press a button.
Extra features it offered me was timers, multiple scene changes at the touch of a button and a clip button for those moments where you're focused on the game...
A conundrum of killing all the things, but also into unicorns and glitter pens. Wears her allegiance on her sleeve. Lok’tar ogar!
