Beelink U59 Review

Today in our review we are taking a brief look at the Beelink U59 which is a budget mini PC tailored for home and office work, rather than gaming. We will be unboxing it, taking a look at its features, then running some system benchmarks for its performance.

Unboxing

First we have the Beelink U59 mini pc which we will show in more detail shortly.

Underneath is a user manual in multiple languages including English, German, Spanish and Russian. Next we have a power supply, we will include the correct adaptor for your country when ordering.

There are two HDMI cables, one is very short which can be used for when mounting the mini PC on a display so there’s no trailing cable. And last but not least there is a display mounting plate and screws for it.

The Beelink U59 measures around 4.8 x 4.4 x 1.6 in (12.4 x 11.3 x 4.2 cm). On the front are two USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack and the power button.

On the back are a gigabit ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports and two HDMI ports for dual monitor support.

Beelink U59 Technical Specifications

PassMark

We start the benchmarks with PassMark which stress tests the CPU, GPU, RAM and storage to their maximum performance for an artificial performance test.

The Beelink U59 scores 1,399. For a small form factor PC of this specification it is OK, barely any difference in performance to the MinisForum JB95 mini PC.

PCMark

Next is PCMark which is more of a real life benchmark testing day to day tasks which include web browsing, media consumption and working with office documents.

The Beelink U59 mini computer scores 2,379, again very close scores to the JB95 and decent for this mini PC specification.

3DMark

3DMark performs a series of tests on the CPU and GPU for graphics performance. While this is not a gaming PC, it is still useful for tasks such as image processing and video decoding.

Beelink U59 Benchmark Summary

The U59 is best suited for those wanting a mini PC for home and office work. It is suitable for these day to day type tasks from browsing social media or watching a video, through to working on some documents.

If you want some occasional gaming then we would recommend one of our higher specification devices that we sell such as the MinisForum mini PC range. These are better suited for light gaming or even higher end gaming. 

That wraps up this brief review of the Beelink U59, we hope you have found it useful. You can learn more about and buy the Beelink U59 here. Or browse our range of mini PC’s here.
