What's Hot

I believe the Elgato Stream Deck gets the best of both worlds when looking at the other Stream Deck options Elgato has available. The deck itself is small and compact, yet it comes with enough keys that most streamers would need. It doesn't have excessive keys, its stand is versatile with its height options, and it basically does exactly what it's intended to do.

What's Not

There are only a couple things that aren't hot about the Elgato Stream Deck, and that's how flimsy some the brackets are on the stand and perhaps how shiny the plastic that is used. I really have to cherry-pick here because both of these aspects aren't necessarily downsides, more so, just parts of it that could do with some refining.

Final Thoughts

All in all, the Elgato Stream Deck is already my favorite option out of Elgato's line of Stream Decks. It does exactly what it's intended to do without taking up too much room on your desk or being a large eyesore.


Critiquing this product is hard because there are very few things that are wrong with it. But if I had to, and like I previously mentioned in 'What's Not,' I'd change the decks plastic from a shiny look to a more solid black - maybe matte black? I'd also change the stand design or perhaps reinforce some of the hinges a bit more to provide some more stability.

Other than those things that I mentioned above, the Elgato Stream Deck is an absolutely fantastic product. I can almost guarantee that if any regular streamer that's in need of key binds decided to pick one up, that they won't be disappointed with the purchase what so ever. The Elgato Stream Deck is your sleek good looking desk-companion that's both smart and pretty.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
