In the last few years we have been able to test most of the devices jumper, some of which surprised us positively, while others did not. The Chinese company, however, is starting to raise the bar and this EZbook X3 Pro Jumper it is the proof. Because? Let's find out together in our full review.
Review Jumper EZbook X3 Pro
Unboxing - Jumper EZbook X3 Pro
The sales package is made of simple cardboard and inside we find the following equipment:
- Jumper EzBook X3 Pro;
- wall power supply with Italian socket;
- instruction manual.
Construction and design - Jumper EZbook X3 Pro
Compared to the other models, important improvements have been made, such as theframe optimizations around the display and the body on which the keyboard resides. In fact, we have no unnecessarily free parts other than the palm rests. This feature makes the EZbook X3 Pro Jumper a machine with compact dimensions and perfect for the portability, in fact it has the measures of 308 x 209 x 13.7 millimeters for a weight of 1.3 kilograms.
As you can well imagine, it will be very comfortable to fit into most work backpacks and its low weight will not put too much burden on your back.
The notebook is made entirely of aluminum, which turns out to be rather solid ed free of push-ups, especially in the middle of the keyboard which is usually a critical point for low-cost Chinese devices.
I was also satisfied by design which, although it is rather standard externally, has a front end premium appearance, almost like an ultrabook. Obviously the difference with a device from 1000 € you notice, but without knowing the price you would never say that this is placed around the 270 €.
Below there are four rubber feet that increase the grip and the M.2 SATA slot, on the right side there is an 3.0 USB port, the microSD slot and the 3.5 mm jack input, while on the left side there is the input for charging and the 3.1 USB Type-C port. The only small flaw that I found was the protrusion of the 3.5 mm jack input, which is not flush with the body and will tend to get scratched easily.
La keyboard è backlit and with US layout and as in all the other reviews, I repeat that it is only a matter of habit. However, if you are not very practical in writing then I recommend buying some sticker with Italian configuration to be applied on the keyboard. The ride is good, the keys are the right size and you can write very quickly without making any particular mistakes. The only aspect I would like to mention is that with the light reflection the keys do not appear to be clearly visible as the characters are white on a light gray background. There backlight it helps only partially and only in low light conditions.
Il touchpad è very broad, has a slightly dull finish and fully supports windows gestures although it is not very precise during use. Finally, i Wrist Rest they are spacious enough for comfortable writing.
Il EZbook X3 Pro Jumper has a display IPS da 13.3 inches diagonal with resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and treatment glossy. The latter will cause gods reflexes when using the notebook in direct sunlight, but honestly I prefer it to a matt panel.
However, the maximum brightness it is sufficient in the interior and overall we have a good reproduction of the chromatic range although the colors tend to be slightly warmer than normal. With this I am trying to find the hair in the egg for a display that, due to its price range, manages to do its job very well. In fact I was satisfied and the leap in quality compared to other variants of the Chinese house is noticeable and how. Finally, the viewing angles are good.
Hardware and Performance
Under the body of the EZbook X3 Pro Jumper we find a chipset Intel Gemini Lake N4100, which is inclusive of a processor quad-core with a maximum clock frequency of 2.4 GHz and base of 1.1 GHz, flanked by 8 GB di Dual Channel LPDDR4 RAM (not expandable) e 180 GB di SSD SATA3 memory, expandable through lo SSD slot dedicated or through microSD. Software side we find Windows 10 Home in Italian language.
To be a notebook from around 280 € I was satisfied with the performance, as for a standard use (and therefore not for a professional) he does his job very well, almost never going into crisis. More in detail I refer to the use of the office suite, web browsing, writing of Articles, YouTube, Spotify, Netflix and so on. The transition from one software to another is quite rapid and even with multiple windows open the machine still manages to respond to commands given in sufficient time.
Le memory I'm veloci and of benchmarking they gave better results than the many competitors we analyzed in the previous months. Moreover, although we are talking about one fanless machine with passive cooling system, le temperature they never exceed the 60 °, even in the most agitated phases.
Now let's move on to the graphic part because we have one on board Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU which allows us to use some programs for video editing and to carry out light gaming. As for this last detail we must point out that the titles with which you can play in a manner more or less fluid are those present on Microsoft Store How Asphalt Urban, Modern Combact o Sniper Fury and not the various ones Apex Legends o Fortnite (the minimum requirements are not met).
Talking aboutphoto and video editing you will be able to perform basic work with two video tracks e two audio with some transitions and written in quite good times. In fact, to render a video from 5 minutes took about 20 minutes.
Obviously if you are looking for something that will allow you to apply a color correction or to have you carry out articulated works then you will have to change the machine. The EZbook X3 Pro Jumper it is not a notebook for professionals, but more for Amateur YouTuber looking for a low-cost solution.
Similarly I do not recommend buying it if your only intent is to find a device that is able to guarantee excellent gaming performance.
Connectivity, audio and camera
As for the connectivity the EZbook X3 Pro Jumper presents an entrance USB Type-C 3.1 with video output up to 4K and a door USB 3.0. Let's not forget that on board we find a modem Wi-Fi Dual Band (Intel Wireless-AC 9461 network card) which works quite well as well as the Bluetooth 5.0. From this point of view this notebook is a certainty and boasts of a technical sheet that can hardly be seen on other competitors.
On board we find 4 speaker arranged on frontal, which are not particularly powerful and do not return a full-bodied sound. Generally speaking they are sufficient to watch movies at home, but if you are an audiophile I recommend adding a good Bluetooth speaker for listening to music.
La camera front by 1 mega-pixels it is enough for informal video calls, as we have a low resolution and an audio captured by the microphone which turns out to be a bit metallic. In short, as far as this aspect is concerned, it's all according to the standards of cheap Chinese notebooks.
Under the body of the EZbook X3 Pro Jumper we find a battery from 5000 mAh that guarantees us aexcellent autonomy. In fact, if we use the notebook for take notes and for web browsing (the use "university") we can also reach the 9 hours, while with mixed use between web browsing, YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, sporadic gaming then we are around 5 hours.
If you intend to buy it to take it with you to the university, you can also get to two days of autonomy without too many problems. As for the recharge complete, instead, this happens in just over 2 hours.
Review Jumper EZbook X3 Pro - Conclusions and price
Il EZbook X3 Pro Jumper is often found on GearBest e Banggood between 280 and 260 € and at this price it could be aexcellent solution for those looking for a aluminum notebook, aesthetically modern and appealing and able to be reliable in everyday use.
In recent weeks I have mainly used it on the move to edit some videos for the channel GizDeals, to take notes in class as well as work on Excel sheets and for watching movies and I must say that I stayed pleasantly surprised by the performances since some of his predecessors had left a bad taste in my mouth.
Like all low-cost Chinese notebooks sin with the front camera and the touchpad sometimes it's not very precise, but it has compact dimensions, a good display and excellent autonomy!
Can I recommend it? Obviously it depends for what purpose you want to buy it, but personally I think this is it one of the best jumpers that I've tried so far e one of the best solutions under the 280 euro, so the answer is definitely yes.
