And to begin with…
Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more for multimedia, and others more for games.
So we did some tests Jumper EZbook X3 to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.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.
After reading this article you will know if this model suits your needs.
EZbook X3 compatible with internet use?
Considering that your use of a computer is simple (surfing the internet, writing e-mails and/or letters, doing calculations on an Excel spreadsheet), it is important to focus on a laptop that is both of high quality and strong enough to last over time.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
That’s the direction taken by Jumper with this EZbook X3.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Material that seem to be well-designed.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 13.3 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. For all users who don’t appreciate the use of the mouse (with or without wires), it EZbook X3 is provided by default with a touch screen. The materials appear to be designed to last several years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Jumper has been taken in the overall design of this model.
With a processor Intel Celeron N3450, Jumper offers an already outdated technology. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. A standard equipment with 8 Gb of RAM. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. With only 128 Gb, Jumper considers that you won’t need to store too many files locally, and that you’ll rather do it on a public cloud. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 5 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the EZbook X3 is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
The EZbook X3- the right model for streaming and videos ?
With this laptop, Jumper offers a product oriented toward general use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this EZbook X3 is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
Equipped with a small screen size, 13.3 inches, it has a resolution format 3200×1800. The colours are faithful, warm enough, and the contrasts allow a high level of detail. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.8 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. EZbook X3 will be ideal for movies, photos and games in a dark or half light environment because you will have the means to control light intensity. On the other hand, because of this, the screen requires the viewer to take a break every 2 hours or so.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this EZbook X3. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. 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.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Intel Celeron N3450 that is several years old now. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel HD Graphics 500, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
Nothing is more unpleasant than a computer that shuts down before the end of the film because of batteries of poor autonomy. With its autonomy of 5 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
Is EZbook X3 planned for travelling ?
This EZbook X3 is one of the average laptops; not really nomadic oriented, but still possible to carry on special occasions. We tested several functions depending on their intended use : for holidays, weekends, or continuously on public transport for work. The bottom line is this : Since the sum of its characteristics (weight, size, components) are better than the competition, it is in your best interest to choose this model.
An acceptable gap regarding the displacement of this EZbook X3 of 1.8 Kg. You can transport it easily, without too much effort. On your lap, this laptop holds well, and the size of the screen and the base remain acceptable. With a 13.3 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
Jumper has decided to provide a touch screen on the EZbook X3. Here you will be in a familiar environment; an ease of use that is identical to your smartphone. The selections are precise in the cursor movement, making navigation seamless.
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. A beautiful screen and quality images. On the other hand, this last characteristic will be less interesting for outdoor use because of the sun reflections that will occur.
No anti-reflective tile is provided on this model. Also, you will avoid using this laptop outdoors or with too much light.
Too bad for the processor Intel Celeron N3450 that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
The result is a poorer autonomy. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 5 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 128 Gb. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. With a screen of 13.3 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
If it is for an exceptional trip, we think it can be taken away.
The EZbook X3 for audio or video editing ?
For non-professional use for audio or video editing, this EZbook X3 may be fine. It is correctly equipped on the processor level for speed and RAM for task management; This is below what dedicated computers do for professional use, but a good level for those who need it.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Celeron N3450. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The EZbook X3 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 128 Gb. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (5 hours). Unfortunately, it remains low for an audio-video use which needs a lot of computing power. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it EZbook X3 receives the USB3 connection. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
It will also do very well for word processing or web browsing when you need it. In short, an interesting choice in this price range.
EZbook X3 for video games?
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. With this EZbook X3, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. The main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. This model is proposed in resolution 3200×1800, that is to say one of the best on the market.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.With 128 Gb it EZbook X3is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. A guarantee of quality that will allow, if your living area is equipped with it, to have a faster and generally more reliable web access.
With a weight 1.8 Kg and a screen size of 13.3 inches, it is a tool in the average of other laptops.
Note the disadvantage in terms of autonomy: it is one of the lowest with 5 hours available.
In short, if you want a fun gaming experience, choose another model than this EZbook X3 one. But it can be a good choice for office functions.
EZbook X3 the right choice for office automation ?
Like the majority of its competitors, Jumper has designed EZbook X3 for office automation. It is a mature product.
Jumper has designed this new laptop for the majority of users. It is equipped with Windows 10.
It is one of the laptops available in the range. In short, an average laptop with 1.8 Kg that can be carried on holiday or to the office.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
No anti-reflective treatment on this EZbook X3. Testing the lamp next to the screen can affect the quality of work in office use. 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.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 128 Gb. If you are used to backing up everything locally, you will have to think about adding an external hard drive, because the hard drive EZbook X3can be quickly filled.
In the end, this EZbook X3 is a good compromise. The middle groud for recurring use in office automation mode.
Finally, the EZbook X3….
In the end, our analysis will have shown that it EZbook X3 is disappointing whatever the uses. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– web browsing
– travel use
– making audio and video editing
– office tasks
