Summary
The Beelink GT1 Ultimate is a good box to watch HD videos with, or play classic games.
 
While there are may boxes running the S912 CPU most have less RAM at 1-2GB.
 
The GT1 Ultimate with the 3GB of RAM gives it a edge over them making it more responsive and better when playing videos or game play.
 
We are still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.

    Hi. I have purchased the new Beelink Gt1 ultimate and I am trying to play 4 k movies with very little success. I have also installed IP Vanish which has slowed down my internet speed to 30Mbps but I can not play 4K movies due to buffering problems. Are there any special settings that I need to make to my android box?

      30 Mbps is plenty fast. Test your box with a 4k video from youtube. If it works then the servers of the 4k sources you are having problems with are overloaded or crappy. Also google kodi buffering solutions, there are some decent youtube videoes about that. Hope this helps!
