Stream Deck as Button Box?

Just wondered if anybody has any experience of using a stream deck as a button box? I’m looking to upgrade my basic 6 button box and came across the stream deck. The ability to “file” actions for different sims looks useful, but a lack of encoders is a sacrifice. I saw Chris Harris video post on using one and whilst he thought it was good, he also has a conventional button box too.
Looking at higher end boxes the cost looks similar - unless you consider the new Stream Deck XL. Just looking for anybody who has used one or who has seen a draw back I haven’t considered.
Thanks for any pointers.

I did get a Stream XL, it works pretty well for anything you want.
I will be using it as a button box too after I mount it to the righ

I'm very happy with my Streamdeck XL. Only had time to create a simple dash for ACC so far :).

I've been using my Streamdeck for ACC, iRacing and rF2 a lot recently. Do need to work on a better mounting solution though as it tends to slide about at the minute which isnt ideal. Tried some double sided tape but with the stand on it doesn't get enough purchase.

@norbs cheapest shipping option from the Netherlands to Australia is 18 euros and that’s without tracking. So not really worth it I'm afraid.
