Beelink T4 Review.

Mini PC for office and home by Beelink.

On the technical side, the mini PC Beelink T4 is equipped with an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, a large number of ports for the external interface and a clean, full-fledged Windows 10 operating system. Lets test the mini PC.

Beelink T4: In the box

A small black box has the name of the company, the model and the 4K logo are written on the front. Will the mini PC supports 4K resolution high enough for video playback? You will learn a little later in the performance section.

Inside the box, you can find the following components, such as the Beelink T4 mini PC itself, HDMI cable, a DP cable, a 12V power adapter, bolts and a metal stand for attaching a mini PC to the back of the monitor case, and instructions.

Beelink T4: Design

According to external signs, it is difficult to distinguish a mini PC from a TV box at the present time. Beelink T4 looks like a full-fledged TV box, and not a mini PC, given its size.

Our today’s hero received 106 x 106 x 17.7 mm dimensions, and the weight is only 250 grams. Indeed, comparing the small size and weight, a real mini PC will not be able to have good technical features, but about them a little later.

The case is made of black plastic, and this is a good solution for high-quality heat dissipation. Also the mini PC received active cooling, so there will be no overheating even with heavy loads.

In addition, you can notice a large number of ventilation holes on the side faces and in the lower part of the body.

The upper part received a rather interesting pattern, which looks pretty and unobtrusive in the extreme measure. Here, the device has an Intel logo so that the user does not forget about good performance.

On the front side, there are two USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a power button.

The right side of the face received an additional USB 3.0 port and air vents.

The back surface has the majority of interfaces, such as Ethernet, DP, HDMI, USB 2.0 ports and a connector for a power adapter.

The left side has nothing but ventilation holes for cooling.

The lower part received two rubber strips so that the Beelink T4 mini PC does not slip on the working surface of the table. There are also cooling holes, additional holes for attaching the stand to the monitor or another surface.

Beelink T4: Performance and tests

Beelink T4 mini PC uses the Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor, which was released back in 2015 in March. The chipset is built on four cores with a minimum frequency of 480 MHz and a maximum of 2240 MHz. The graphics processes are performed by the Intel HD Graphics 600 chipset, which does its job pretty well.

What about memory? Beelink T4 received 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. It's a little. It’s good that the mini PC received 4 USB ports, so you can connect an external hard drive to store a large amount of memory.

If we talk about the speed of the built-in memory you can see the result below. The data transfer speed is rather weak and the loading speed of the operating system is long.

After that, lets check the operation of 4K video through a browser on YouTube. You will be surprised since the maximum permissible resolution was only 1080p. But the video played without any problems and showed smoothly, without delays.

Then lets open a video in 4K, 2K, and 1080p formats via a USB flash drive. As it turned out, the first two, namely 4K and 2K resolution, the mini PC did not play, there was just a black screen. But 1080p resolution had no problems with playback.

The finaly ran a synthetic test called Geekbench 5 and the result was weak for a modern device in 2020.

Since the device has a full-fledged operating system Windows 10, for you there will be no special problems with installing additional games, for example, Asphalt 9. Through the Windows Play Store, you can install almost any necessary program.

As for the game in Asphalt 9, surprisingly, it works smoothly, but you can see that the graphics settings are at a minimum level. 

Beelink T4: Conclusion

The budget mini PC from Beelink showed itself as expected, that is, for office purposes and you should not expect high performance.

Of the minuses, I can note that the Beelink T4 received even a processor from Intel, but of a rather old generation, so the performance is not up to par. Also, I was disappointed that the mini PC does not play 4K format.

Pluses are also present, I can refer to them – this is a compact appearance and the presence of an additional mount on the back of the monitor so as not to clog the working surface of the table. Directly, the presence of an active and most importantly quiet cooler allow you to avoid strong temperature conditions.

Lastly, I believe that a mini PC is well suited for office purposes if you need to type text or work in other not difficult tasks.
