So why would you decide to pick up the Elgato Stream Deck Mini over its two larger variants? Easy. The cost of the product is considerably less expensive than the two larger counterparts, and it's much more portable than the two other ones due to its size.

While this might not sound like good enough reasons to get the Mini, consider being a streamer that is constantly moving from one location to another, the weight of the product becomes a pivotal factor in this case. The Mini is the best solution for this because its lighter than the other two counterparts, smaller in size, but also comes with those juicy LCD programmable keys.

Another possible use case of picking up the Mini over its other two variants is figuring out how many programmable keys you are going to be using on stream and realizing you don't need any more than six to get by. Doing this will not only save you a lot of money, but also a lot of desk space. Talking strictly on a utility basis, there would be no point in owning either of the larger variants if you aren't going to be using the keys provided. So, if you can boil down your needs to just six keys, then the Mini is the most responsible option.

To summarize, if you are looking at buying the Mini, then you should fit at least one aspect of the following criteria: Not wanting to spend lots of money on the other two stream decks, your stream is constantly changing location so you wouldn't want a bulky/heavy stream deck. Finally, your needs for a stream deck don't expand further than six programmable keys.
