In a few words
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.To help you, we have tested this model according to several parameters.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.
EZbook X3 compatible with internet use?
Your needs are almost exclusively internet browsing and some word processing documents, but you don’t want any quality defects in this laptop.Ensuring proper operation requires quality components and proven technological competence on the part of the manufacturer.
That’s the direction taken by Jumper with this EZbook X3.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 13.3 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. It EZbook X3 comes standard with a touch screen; one more argument if you are not a regular mouse user, or if you don’t have a space available. The overall design is of quality and is made to last. A product made to last a long time. The engineers fromJumper have designed an interesting model with solid internal and external components.
A reasonable choice equips this model; the Intel Celeron N3450. Considering that the components evolve very quickly, Jumper offers a laptop of good quality that will remain a good choice over several years. Contrary to a video editing style use that requires computing power, this model is correct for surfing the internet; a use that does not require too much computing power. With 8 Gb of RAM, it EZbook X3is a good product. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
For hard drive sizing, Jumper decided to put 128 Gb. This is the standard model. If, on the other hand, you are storing photos, video or music, it will be filled up quickly. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
Finally, the autonomy of 5 hours is one of the worst on the market. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.
EZbook X3 for videos?
Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the EZbook X3; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
Jumper has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. This diagonal of 13.3 inches and a resolution of 3200×1800, is a good compromise. The rendered image is well detailed, with a bright and vivid rendering. In the end, a homogeneous product that allows you to watch films and, with its 1.8 kg,it will be easy to take on the move.
Like the majority of the laptops screen on the market, this model is equipped with the glossy finish. Jumper is primarily intended for film lovers the EZbook X3. Taking full advantage of the backlighting, this tile benefits from the glossy coating which offers more contrasts. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
On the sound side, it EZbook X3 has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The processor installed on this model is a Intel Celeron N3450 sufficient one for audio and video. With this, you are sure to have a scalable product (if needed), and that will fit perfectly with your peripherals (speakers, video projectors, etc…). This will result in fluid video and audio sessions.
Equipped with the Intel HD Graphics 500 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Regarding the connectivity part, Jumper has made efforts with available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
For multimedia use in travel or on-the-go mode, this EZbook X3 may not be suitable. That’s only 5 hours of battery life you have at your disposal. Before the end of some movies in long version, you will have to put the power cable back on, otherwise this laptop will turn itself off. In other words, do not rely too much on performance and prefer to use this device always connected to electricity.
The EZbook X3- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
The main interest of the laptop, is how easy it can be taken away. With this in mind, we tested the EZbook X3. Is it made to be taken on trips, packed in your luggage ? Will it be designed for your home-to-work transfers? Should you only consider it for weekend trips with your family? Or ultimately will it have the function of staying at home?
It appears that it is one of the best fulfilling the main criteria for nomadism, which are size, weight, quality of materials, and availability of wifi.
It EZbook X3 weights 1.8 Kg which makes it a computer in the average of its category. It’s still an easy-to-handle computer, even if it’s not an ultrabook. On your lap, this laptop holds well, and the size of the screen and the base remain acceptable. One of the reasons is its 13.3 inches screen.
The touch screen is present on the EZbook X3, which gives you the possibility to avoid using the mouse. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Equipped with a glossy slab, it provides very good visual comfort. The rendering on screen is good. The disadvantage will come in the event of using it outdoors with a lot of light.
This model does not have a matt or anti-reflective tile. Also, you will avoid using this laptop outdoors or with too much light.
With its processor Intel Celeron N3450, this laptop has a power consumption in the average of the others.
The manufacturer estimates a possible range that you can reduce. This is an estimate for average current use; you can consider that the actual range will be around 75%.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 5 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 128 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Even if a portable laptop stays at the hotel 80% of the time, it is relevant to have a screen that is not too big so as not to be disturbed, but big enough to enjoy the image. Because of its size, 13.3 inches this laptop represents a good compromise.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
All in all, this EZbook X3 is an interesting product for travel.
The EZbook X3 for audio or video editing ?
If your main professional activity is not audio or video editing, but you are looking for a laptop that can meet this need for your hobbies, then this EZbook X3 is the right choice. Thanks to its processor and its RAM, it accepts multitasking without flinching. Of course, it is not at the level of what is done for professionals, but it responds well anyway.
Generally speaking, for occasional use, the choice of processor Intel Celeron N3450 makes it possible. Having 8 Gb of RAM, the rendering speed is sufficient for image processing. As standard, you will have the applications to make your video editing or your photo or music modifications. And in case you want to go further, you will be able to do so provided you add a bit of memory.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. Here with 128 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
With 5 hours in battery-only calculation mode, you’ll have little latitude. It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. On this point Jumper could have done much better.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it EZbook X3 receives the USB3 connection. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
If necessary, it can be used for word processing and e-mails. A sensible choice for a product in this price range.
The EZbook X3 for online or local games.
Laptops, thanks to the rise in performance of processors and graphics cards, allow some people to gamble. And this EZbook X3 is one of the average laptops you can play with. During our tests, we found that the computer was raised correctly, as soon as the scenes in some games required fast movements and colour changes.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 3200×1800, nothing better at the moment
With its graphics Intel HD Graphics 500 card and processor Intel Celeron N3450, Jumper has indeed chosen an interesting option. Thanks to the technical elements installed on this laptop, the card Intel HD Graphics 500 and the processor Intel Celeron N3450 are raised to a very good level.
The most demanding will prefer a processor and graphics chip of the latest generation, but for the majority, Jumper has chosen the features resulting in good playability on most games currently available.
With its 128 Gb of space, this EZbook X3 is on a level playing field with its competitors. Useful for local games; as there are still many of them, even though online games are progressing.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
You’ll like this handy laptop, and rather light (1.8 Kg and 13.3 inches), comparable to most similar products.
Note the disadvantage in terms of autonomy: it is one of the lowest with 5 hours available.
It EZbook X3 is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.
EZbook X3 for office automation ?
Although this does not affect the majority of users, it is important to know the OS of this hardware. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. This EZbook X3 is clearly intended for those who will use it for office use.
If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
In contrast to other larger models, this model is in the middle of the pack in terms of space requirements. Average weight, with 1.8 Kg.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
No anti-reflective treatment on this EZbook X3. The disadvantage of this is that the same light may tire you out over time. Concerning light intensity, is is: not so good for eye comfort and work, but powerful in the dark to watch videos.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. It’s 128 Gb available, perfect for office use, but maybe tight for recording movies.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. The right choice for anyone who wants an efficient computer.
Finally, the EZbook X3….
Hard to do very well for all purposes; in any case this computer is doing well. The EZbook X3 corresponds to a product that is certainly average, but still effective.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– listening to music and watching videos
