add


Hi Folks ,This time my review is for the Beelink A1 sent to me from Beelink (Thanks guys)

Highlights (From webpage)

Beelink A1 comes equipped with Rockchip RK3328 processor, the latest Rockchip SoC unveiled in the Janurary CES. With the latest RK3328 SoC loaded.

Beelink A1 will be able to play 4K videos with H.265, H.264 and VP9 codecs, other than that, it features HDR, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0 to say a few.

DDR3 4GB RAM, eMMC 16GB Flash
Configure 4GB memory and 16GB of storage space, with smooth and responsive navigation and apps that launch quickly.

Dual Band WIFI
With support for 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz band, it can transmit higher amounts of data, and its naturally less congested.

1000M LAN
1000M LAN can improve the net speed and the performance to a large extent.

4K Resolution
The latest in a line of broadcast and media resolutions, 4K is due to replace 1080p as the highest-resolution signal available for in-home movies and television. With a minimum resolution of 3,840 pixels wide and 2,160 pixels high, making it the equivalent to two 1080p screens in height and two in length.

Firmware A1_704N0 http://www.bee-link.com/Beelink-27076-1-1.html

improvements


1.The led brightness can be changed as you like when you go in the setting ;
2.The navigation bar and status bar have been added now ;
3.Some apps can be compatible with the google play store now ;
4.The portrait layout apps have been shown in landscape when it runs ;
5.The problem that the UI gets a crash when you press the 1/a button ;
6.We have improved the stability of this system ;
7.The OTA news has been sent to your android tv box already .

Some tips for updating (From Beelink webpage)

1. USB updating :
1)Install the DriverAssitant_v4.5 first and double click the DriverInstall.exe , then you need to choose the "install the driver"option to finish this installation.
2)Open the FactoryTool-v1.43e and then double click the FactoryTool.exe ,now it's time to click the "firmware"to load it well.
3)Click the "start" and hold the reset button still to connect the double USB cable , then you can take it easy to wait for the updating

Beelink A1 Video Review





Kodi
The Beelink A1 comes with NO Kodi installed.I then installed kodi 17.5 :-) The speed of kodi is fast 4 seconds to load from the app screen,Iv been streaming 1080 from the web with no video stuttering that iv noticed & the device remained cool all the time,I did try some 4k content but some video slight stuttering was noticed (But only very slight).

Games
Iv tested beach buggy blitz,Asphalt 8 & asphalt extreme, All 3 games installed fine but will not load.
Real racing 3 does work however.


Misc
Logitech c270 camera works fine
External powered 1T HD works fine in the USB2 port but not in the USB3 port
32GB sd card works fine
Tronsmart Mars G01 game pad works

The Beelink A1 gets warm but no where near hot,The ventilation holes are helping here by keeping the unit cool,I was expecting it to get hotter than is does but nope the temp's are good on this unit.


Package Contents:
1 x TV Box
1 x Power Adapter
1 x HDMI Cable
1 x English User Manual
