What experts liked
These buttons are fully programmable by the end-user, and also include the ability to create folders—expanding 15 buttons out to even more, if you (for instance) want to use Elgato’s software to build a group of Twitter-specific actions, another for OBS, another for Shadowplay, and so on, with perhaps a handful of important actions (“Start Streaming”) saved to the top level.

Can be used alongside a second Stream Deck for seamless dual streams

Elgato has done a lot of work to improve the experience of pressing a button to make an action happen in an app since it launched the original Stream Deck. The included free software is simpler with several more built-in options and features. Making folders is a snap and so is building profiles that automatically populate the Stream Deck depending on what programs you have open.

Users can program the buttons to perform various actions, such as playing GIFS and soundbites. It also comes with a selection of default shortcuts for popular streaming apps, and integrates with OBS Studio, XSplit, Streamlabs, Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Mixer, and more.

The Stream Deck Mini comes with the same features that its predecessor, the Stream Deck, used to have. You can get the same functionality and versatility to increase your production value. The same time-saving features have also been added to the device to boost audience engagement. It’s also ultra-compact package that’s easy to bring anywhere you go.

What experts didn't like
The learning curve on the user’s part is a bit much, and the Stream Deck doesn’t do much to ease people in. There’s no “Default” or “Recommended” setup for new users to fall back on.

Despite being able to make do with the Stream Deck Mini, people would much rather have more buttons, not less

The big problem with the Mini is the dearth of the buttons. Six buttons is near the lower limit of the number of options you can have on a device like this while still getting some use out of it.
