    Seems Easy to use for MeWell, from my experience so far, this stream deck is way easier to use than the Elgato Stream Deck. The Elgato Stream Deck required a lot more tinkering with customer commands and even then Streamlabs didn’t seem to want to work right with it. I had to repeatedly reset it and Streamlabs to get the Elgato StreamDeck to work.Right out of the box, after installing the appropriate plugins, this seems to work very well. I especially like the analog dials. With Streamlabs Plugin I can adjust the volume of Discord, Microphone, and the Game volume for the stream independently and mute anything I want. Seems to work well changing scenes, starting and stopping the stream, etc…No complaints here…. Seems easy and have had no issues so far.

    Great stream resourceI was a bit skeptical at first but I am glad I made the purchase. It is fairly easy to use and the program it utilizes has a lot of tools. It can be a bit too much, but I think it’s a great and further way to customize your stream and device.

    Beautiful hardware let down by dysfunctional softwareWhile I’m not an online streamer, I have desired an auxiliary controller for years now, constantly eyeing everything from the Stream Deck to various knob controllers; I spend a lot of time working in weird industrial software with more keyboard shortcuts than I can remember, so setting up a controller like this would be a huge productivity boost. Compared to the stream deck, the knobs on this device are a major bonus, offering more mapping opportunities for fine-grained control.The good news is the hardware is exquisite. It’s well built, the screen looks okay (maybe a little low resolution, but not too bad), and the buttons are satisfying to push. I might have liked the knobs to be a little easier to push, and the page buttons at the bottom are a little too recessed and stiff for my taste, but those are minor critiques.The fundamental problem here is the software just doesn’t work right. In fact, it barely works at all.This controller is actually not a Razer product under the covers – it’s a rebranded Loupedeck, which becomes quickly apparent when you try to set it up and have to download hundreds of megabytes of Razer garbage just to be handed a link to the real drivers you need.When I finally got the Loupedeck software installed, it did launch, but it’s _incredibly_, unusably slow to work with – every click or action to assign functions to buttons takes many seconds to process. It takes what should be an exciting process of setting up my device and turns it into an exercise in total frustration. I tried to find profiles for my apps online, but the “store” was completely empty, likely indicating another technical issue.Worse, once it’s all set up, the performance and reliability problems continue. Task Manager shows the Loupedeck service consumes upwards of 10% of my CPU resources, 24×7, the entire time I’m using my computer. The overhead is unacceptably high and is a total adoption blocker – I can’t sacrifice that much compute power to an accessory. Periodically, the app also crashes – I’ve got a whole library of screenshots of crash messages, some of which have popped up while I wasn’t even attempting to use the device.It’s a huge shame because the potential is totally here. With better software, this could really be a winning device… but as it currently stands, I can’t recommend it at all. I’ve ended up uninstalling the Loupedeck software to reclaim my machine.I know what you’re thinking – I read reviews like this and assume the reviewer just doesn’t know how to use the product. I had the same thought when reading the reviews when I picked this product for review – turns out the software really is as bad as everyone says it is. I’d really like to see Razer start from scratch and rewrite the drivers for this – the hardware is sound, and with working software it could be a real contender.

    The software really brings it downHonestly I really love the idea of this keypad and even with all the issues, it’s still very useful. I’m going to keep using it, I’m not going to replace it with another streampad anytime soon. However, the issues that are here are like… really in your face.1) It sometimes doesn’t sync with the software and I have to move it to another USB port to get it to re-handshake2) When I got it, the marketplace was broken so I couldnt download additional content or integrations3) The way it integrates with Razer hardware works but is a pain. For example, I have the keylight chroma which is connected to synapse, so I have to have synapse running all the time (ew) so that the loupedeck hardware can send a signal to the loupedeck software, to talk to synapse, which talks to the light. So it kind of mostly works… most of the time.4) The loupedeck software sometimes decides my hardware is different and will default to a different deck. I have to change it in the drop down menu to get it displaying properly and then it can talk to my hardware. But why is it doing that? Why is it only sometimes seeing my hardware and connecting correctly?5) I still can’t figure this out and can’t find any videos to clarify but there are macro actions for mouse movement and clicking… but I can’t seem to find a way to actually map the mouse movement. So I can’t record my own mouse clicks, but also I can select something like “Mouse>Movement>Horizontal” but can’t set the parameters for how far it moves horizontally, or if it’s left vs. right movement. Maybe I’m just too dumb for it but I checked with a couple friends who also have loupedeck hardware and they didn’t know either and I’m generally a savvy user.So yeah, I can’t say that I’d choose this over another similar option, but now that I have it, it’s good enough to not bother replacing. It’s a shame that the integration with razer stuff is just so-so.

    Well, it’s a Loupedeck Live…I suppose I wasn’t sure what to expect. My experience with Synapse is limited, and I don’t use many Razer products currently, but I was at least expecting there to be more software integration. Upon install, what happened next? Install Loupedeck software.So that was disappointing. Previously, Razer had released their own modified GoXLR Mini, which I’m pretty sure had full Razer software integration. Which was a boon, since TC Helicon didn’t seem to want to do anything more with what they had created so many years ago. This time? All Razer Synapse does for this version of the Loupedeck Live is switch between profiles; the things you switch to depending on what you are currently doing on your PC (i.e. using Adobe software, Premier Pro, OBS, etc).Don’t get me wrong, the profiles seem pretty good overall, adding a lot of at-hand functionality for programs you may use. Most of it, however, is for productivity. Not really a downside, but in order to get additional integration, you need plugins. For example, there is an unofficial plugin for the GoXLR software, which has entirely limited functionality (only switching between Profiles and Routing). If this doesn’t have a plugin available, or there isn’t an unofficial one available somewhere on Github, you’re out of luck. Discord is one obvious example where this is lacking, especially now with how it even has Xbox and Playstation integration.Let’s just break down some of the features:PROS:-Substantial integration for image/video software suites-Convenient page buttons at the bottom-Nice knobs for controlling certain aspects of programs this integrates with-Metal construction, with a snap-in support at the back, with rubberized feetCONS:-Doesn’t seem any better than just having a Loupedeck Live (albeit, costs the same)-Lacking integration, and not as easy to setup buttons for custom actions (like on/off toggles)-Still requires MIDI controller to do anything noteworthy with the knobs-Costs $270Overall, I think it’s a nice piece of kit, especially if you use productivity software and OBS. Easy to setup and use with existing profiles for a wide array of programs, including more recent entries like Krita (which is shown in the first image). However, it loses a star, as it really isn’t anything new here, outside of whenever Loupedeck makes updates to their own software suite. Razer Synapse doesn’t seem like it’s really adding anything, outside of having something else running in the background if you don’t happen to already use Razer peripherals.The price also makes it tough to compete with the Elgato Streamdeck. Granted, that has *also* gone up in price, but their software has a lot more flexibility in customizing buttons and functions. Loupedeck’s original offering was already struggling to provide something more for the steeper price when it first launched, and they have certainly made updated, but I still don’t feel it competes. Outside of purely productivity software.

    Comparison with Stream DeckI’ve been using a Stream Deck for awhile and overall, I still prefer the Stream Deck, but this does have some really nice features.Hardware:I love the volume knobs and physical buttons on the Razer. The device itself seems well-built, sturdy, and doesn’t slide around on my desk like my Stream Deck does. I also like that it has a detachable USB-C cable (and the cable feels high quality). I’m not a huge fan of the touch screen because it’s a little hard to tell if I’m hitting the right button or what I’m tapping if I’m not looking down at it, but that’s not a huge downside. The Razer’s screen itself also looks a little better than the Stream Deck, in my opinion. The Razer wins this category.Management software:I find the UI really confusing and difficult to use. It’s kind of laggy and not immediately obvious when to click vs drag things over. I could figure it out, but it feels a lot clunkier, slower, and more complicated than the Stream Deck software. Every time you install a plugin, it has to stop and think about it, and the device itself locks up while it thinks (so you can’t use it while you install the plugin). The software Windows initially tries to install isn’t actually the software that you want to use to manage it, which is a little annoying. Stream Deck wins this category, just for being more user-friendly. I’m hoping this improves over time with the Razer.Software support:I have a Nanoleaf plugin on my Stream Deck that works flawlessly. It can see all the scenes and controls no problem. On the Razer, there’s a Nanoleaf plugin in the marketplace that I couldn’t get to work at all. There are a ton of 3rd party plugins that seem to be missing from the Razer (like Discord support, smart home plugins, etc.). I also use some other Elgato products (like my mic) that the Stream Deck integrates with better. The Stream Deck feels better supported and wins this category as well.Overall, I really enjoy using the Razer and I have hope that over time, the software management and support will get better. The hardware seems superior and I think the software might improve as it becomes more popular.

    Almost.EDIT 09/16/2022: It seems like Loupedeck (not Razer) pushed an update to fix basically everything I was complaining about a couple days ago, so I thought it was only right I’d mention it and update my review. They updated the OBS integration and the OS-level controls breaking on sleep but also somehow borked their marketplace functionality (it doesn’t render unless you maximize the window).

    Good as a productivity tool as well.Hello there,I’m not a streamer, but I was looking for an extended keyboard to automate some macros and some OS functionalities. Well, I’m impressed.The fact that you can configure multiple pages, you can configure the dial functionalities, and it changes the profile when you swap the applications is very useful for me. Simple tasks like fine-scrolling using the dials.I have to admit I’m not a fanatic regarding multi-use keys on a regular keyboard. Using dials to control screen brightness and audio volume, in addition to the macro keys, significantly improves my work experience. Since I work mainly from home, multitasking with this controller is easier and less prone to errors than with keyboard shortcuts.I know this is a costly accessory. It has less integration with third-party devices than the latest stream deck, which I bought later, but this is way better at controlling MAC-OS functionalities than the competitor. After months of living with this keypad, there’s no coming back. I love this thing.If you are in the market and looking for a keypad for streaming, some Adobe applications, or even office apps, I highly recommend you consider this option.I hope you find this review helpful.Thanks for reading!

    Good hardware, Razer version of LoupedeckThis Stream Controller is basically a replica of the Loupedeck device. It is a great tool for both streaming and video editing, with many configuration options available, and the potential for further integration options in the future.The hardware is better than other options in this category, with the analog dials and programmable buttons on the bottom that devices like the Elgato Stream Deck do not offer. It is a sold and sturdy feeling device, and the overall build quality also seems superior to the Elgato as well.The software implementation is decent, but it is debatable whether this device outperforms Elgato in that category. I personally prefer the Elgato Stream Deck for streaming setups at the moment, but for video editing I like this Razer device. This is probably a matter of personal preference, and it may also depend on if you are already invested in Razer’s ecosystem with a collection of other Razer devices. Also keep in mind that the addons and software controls often change over time, so I tend to lean toward investing in the better hardware and hoping that there will be consistent updates to software.Overall, this is a great option for streaming and video editing, and even has some potential in other applications like music production. 4.4 / 5 for me, but depending on what you plan on using this for, this might be the best option on the market today.

    Paying extra for what? Razer brandingBefore you read any further, from my research – there is nothing different from this compared to the loupedeck live and unless you care about branding – there is no reason to buy this specific one.The Razer Stream Controller utilizes none of the Razer Synapse software but instead redirects you to the Loupedeck configurator. The configurator itself is functional but is quite laggy navigating around and creates issues when putting your computer to sleep. The software shop has a bunch of useful streaming items and Adobe setup screens but is rather limited to specific applications. For the most part, you will be creating your own shortcuts/macros and assigning them to icons on the screen or using the configurator to utilize opening system applications.The biggest issue with the controller is that after my computer goes to sleep the configurator software crashes and renders the controller useless until you ‘Recover Loupedeck’ buttonIf you are a racing sim player, this is a nice thing to have – for things like Flight Simulator and iRacing, you can create custom macros to control things in the game like volume, switches, etc.Overall, the Razer Stream Controller has the potential of being useful but is plagued by slow and unreliable software and is wildly overpriced.
