Stock firmware is OKish but there is an excellent custom one already available.

Have had a bad experience with Beelink, in that there box gave in after 7 or 8 months. Also they abandon boxes in terms of firmware updates. Ok if they keep producing custom roms, but then it could be any box on the same chipset and beelink aren't the cheapest.

It should be expected that you will pay a little extra for added memory and storage as well as the faster DDR4.

It is not automatically the case that any custom firmware will work on any other box based upon the SOC because that would also be the case with manufacturers stock firmwares which is not the case because there is more involved than just the SOC and when support for other hardware elements are built into the kernel then it makes is even less likely that they will work of other boxes to attain the full functionality.

I was looking at a youtube review of the cheaper Beelink mini mxiii ii ( s905x processor ), which the reviewer thought was better than the GT1
These S912 boxes have not had very good reviews , there seems to be many bugs to iron out ( and no Librelec for these either ). Hopefully custom roms should help improve matters - but the custom firmware linked to still has many bugs to fix.
At the moment the cheaper S905x boxes are better.
