Beelink SEi 10 Review – A Strong Combo of Expandability, Style and Performance

Beelink SEi 10 Video Review

The Beelink SEi 10 is one of the latest mini PC’s from Beelink, manufacturers of popular devices such as the Beelink GT King line of Android Boxes.

The SEi10 weighs in at the lower-mid range of the performance spectrum with the respectable 10th generation Intel Core i3-10110U CPU. We sell it with DDR4 SO-DIMM RAM and an NVMe SSD, but you can add a 2.5-inch SATA drive of your choosing down the line as well.

The SEi10 offers a fairly standard fare when it comes to expandability, featuring the ability to add an additional 2.5-inch drive of your choosing, allowing it to function as a media centre with ease if need be.

As always, we have a video and transcript below for those who are interested in learning more about the Beelink SEi 10. Take a look, and if you’re interested, swing on by to our main site to buy! (Or send us an email at [email protected] if you have further questions!)

[Video] Beelink SEi 10 Review

0:23 - Unboxing
 Let's start with the unboxing
 Inside there is the User Manual which is in English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Russian and Japanese.
 There's a guide on how to install a 2.5” hard drive or SSD to further increase the storage.
 We have the Beelink SEi 10 which we will show in more detail shortly.
 Next up we have the power supply. We include the correct adaptor for your country.
 There are two HDMI cables. One is short which is useful if mounting behind the monitor.
 There is the SATA cable and parts for when installing a drive.
 And last but not least is the wall mount and screws.

1:23 - Physical Specs
 On the front are two USB 3.0 ports
 There is a USB Type-C port
 There is a 3.5mm headphone port
 And the power button.
 It measures 4.8 x 4.4 x 1.6 inches and weighs just 345.5g
 On the back is a 1GB ethernet port.
 There are two additional USB 3.0 ports.
 There are two HDMI ports which can be used for dual monitor display.
 And finally, there is the power supply port.
 For wireless communications there is an 802.11ax WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1

2:23 - Technical Specs
 The Beelink SEi 10 has the 10th Generation Intel Core i3-10110U processor with a base frequency of 2.1Ghz and a turbo frequency of 4.1Ghz.
 It has the Intel UHD graphics for 10th generation processors which supports DirectX 12 and up to three monitors.
 There are two options for the RAM and Storage configurations.
 The first is 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 256GB SSD and for the best performance there is 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of M.2 PCI-e NVMe SSD. You can of course further expand the storage with an internal 2.5” hard drive or SSD.

3:19 - General Windows Usage
 The Beelink SEi 10 mini PC comes preinstalled with Windows 10 Professional and a fully activated Windows license. This will give you all the latest updates to download and install.
 As you would expect, day to day tasks such as web browsing are fast and smooth. You have full access to Microsoft Store for installing and updating your software. 

3:45 - Benchmarks
 The following benchmarks test the SEi 10 in different ways to provide information on stress tested processor, memory and disk performance, as well as daily tasks such as web browsing, office work and entertainment. The video may be sped up in places as some tests can take several minutes to complete.

4:07 - Passmark Benchmark
 PassMark provides an overview of a multitude of tests including processor, graphics, memory and disk performance. It allows us to get a general view of performance at high load.
 The Beelink SEi 10 scores 2150 which is in the area for similar devices of this specification. Overall it scores very well in all six areas, especially the disk speeds.

4:37 PCMark Benchmark
 PCMark benchmarks the more day to day usage of a PC. These include tasks such as video conferencing, web browsing, using office documents, graphics editing, video decoding and much more.
 The final score of 3460 is very good, comparable with other PCs of this specification. It is great for your day to day tasks whether it be at home or in the office.

5:06 - 3DMark Benchmark
 3DMark benchmarks the graphics performance and as always graphics is not just for games. It is used for page rendering, video decoding and encoding and much more.
 The score of 414 is again in the area of similar specification devices, obviously not as fast as higher performance models. It is a good graphics processor suitable for many tasks including some light gaming.

5:32 - DiskMark Benchmark
 DiskMark benchmarks the performance of the M.2 PCI-e NVME SSD read and write speeds in four different ways. This gives us a more detailed view of how it performs and what the read and write speeds are.
 The read score of 2461Mb/sec and write speed of 1708MB/sec is extremely fast for a device of this specification, comparable to higher end Mini PC’s. From booting up Windows, loading software and accessing large files, they will all be at high speed.

6:12 - Wi-Fi Benchmark
 The Beelink uses WiFi 6 and with this we can be sure of a fast and reliable wireless connection. We run speedtest over WiFi connected to the router on the other side of a large room.
 We got a download and upload speed of 312 and 320 megs a second. WiFi 6 is great and you can get even faster speeds if your internet supports it.

6:39 - LAN Benchmark
 The 1GB wired ethernet connected to our NAS works just fine with constant full speed data transfer.

6:48 - Gaming Performance
 For this test we are using Streets of Rage 4 running at Ultra settings at 1080p. The Intel UHD graphics card holds up well with the frame rate regularly changing between 59 and 60 frames per second. We have seen in higher end models that the FPS remains more at 60, so this model is doing a pretty good job.

7:14 - Summary
 The Beelink SEi 10 is a high performing mini PC which holds its own against models with higher specifications and higher cost. It obviously won't have the same performance but comparing the benchmark scores with others you can see very good comparisons, especially in the disk performance. This is a great mini PC for home or office work.
