Elgato’s Stream Deck MK.2 is 20 percent off as part of a Black Friday Corsair gaming sale at Amazon. The accessory is currently available for $120, which is $30 off the usual price of $150. The Stream Deck is one of our recommended accessories for streamers. It’s also useful for other creators like podcasters, as well as anyone who carries out the same tasks over and over on their desktop system.
The Stream Deck MK.2 (not to be confused with Valve’s Steam Deck) is a highly customizable desktop controller. You can set up a Stream Deck to fire up your streaming software, simultaneously start a stream and let social media followers know you’re going live, mute your mic and change your lighting. If you enjoy annoying your friends, you could use the device as a soundboard too.
The Stream Deck is useful for other purposes as well. You can, for instance, set up macros with AutoHotkey on Windows and Shortcuts on Mac to boost your productivity across a wide range of apps. Alternatively, you can use the 15 LCD hotkeys to control music playback, set timers for focused work sessions, trigger actions through IFTTT, change your Slack status, jump into your favorite Discord channel or paste in a lengthy phrase of text that you frequently use. The possibilities are almost endless.
Meanwhile, the Stream Deck+ has dropped to an all-time-low of $170. That’s $30 off the usual price.
This model has eight LCD hotkeys and four dials that offer users more refined control over a variety of functions. You can finely adjust the volume of your headphones or mic, the brightness of connected smart lights or the zoom level of your webcam, for instance. The Stream Deck+ has a touchscreen that displays what each dial does. You can also use this to swipe between different pages of hotkey functions.
