The device ships with a 2.4GHz voice remote control, an HDMI cable, HDD brackets, a power adapter, and a user manual in English. The $250 price tag seemed quite high at first sight, but it’s actually a 3-in-1 system with an Android 9.0 TV box, a NAS supporting for up to 32TB, and a HiFi sound system, so the price may be OK after all.

They also offer an 8GB MicroSD card pre-loaded with CoreELEC right now, so it’s a dual boot system. I wished they had provided more details about the NAS functions, but it’s probably basic and fully handled from within Android with options for network shares and not much else.

    1. Doubtful, they would not pay for certification. The os will be 32bit again, even though hardware is capable of 64bit.

  1. I guess its normal android not TV?

    Unfortunately no idea if its sata via usb or via pcie, but as it has 3x USB 3…

  2. HDD?! wth?
    Seems ssd IS THE GO TO these days.
    An included 512g + would have made much more sense @ this wsy bold pricing- Methinks?

  3. Looks like another shitty knock-off running AOSP, *NOT* Android TV. Does it even support Netflix or any other legitimate Android TV apps, or do you have to attempt to operate an apps designed for phones?

    I would definitely wait for Google’s Sabrina and stick with a dedicated NAS solution.

    1. I sell TV boxes, most of the customers who buy models with ATV, return them after realizing that this is not the Android they expected 🙂

      What does it mean “legitimate Android TV apps”? Are the not ATV apps from PlayStore not legitimate?

      Netflix is not the only one streaming app in PlayStore, especially in Europe…

      1. Android TV works fine for my purposes. I run KODI for my local medi5, and the oni i have supports all the premium stuff.

        Voice remote. chromecast for other crap.

        I have google apps hooked to my remote house stuff.

  4. The 2 drive bays are few, RAID1/1 in the home area nonsense, SnapRAID would be good but I don’t think there will be a suitable adjustment for RAID in general. What remains is a bit of Samba… if there will be something like WoL/WoWL is questionable…
    …but CoreELEC is a good option here, there should be Jellyfin or Emby or Plex possible as a docker container with ARM transcoding.

    The box is not bad with its connections, 5K rpm plates would be good for passive cooling…but it is not healthy.

    I see the box as a media grave and as a smb station. In comparison to the finished Synology/Qnap boxes, you have the advantage of a strong SoC (also for Android gaming) and HD Audio passthrough to have good players… because Synology Player is a horror, but it doesn’t have the size of a slimmed down server (NAS).

    …but I’m afraid that Beelink will be like in the past, keyword “Beelink SEA I “… was a great box from HW, the same in the core as this one… except scrap software and beta firmware, but nothing came around. Great Realtek RTD1295 SoC with bad software = garbage can.

    I hope the CoreELEC team will continue to stand behind the box.
