A laptop made for audio video editing: Jumper EZbook X3 – Intel Celeron N3350

To start

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.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
After reading this article you will know if this model suits your needs.

EZbook X3 enough for internet use?

What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. This EZbook X3 is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. Even if the material is not of a very high quality, with plastic materials (at the level of the hull), the components and the internal circuits of the machine are still designed by Jumper; a manufacturer who has been offering laptops for several years already. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 13.3 inches size. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N3350; A mid-range orientation. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. With less than a 6 Gb of RAM, it EZbook X3 is a fair one. Chances are you’ll have to add some memory over time. Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
The disk size of this laptop is among the smallest on the market. By offering only 64 Gb, this EZbook X3 is one of the smallest in its category. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 8 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. This laptop is in the middle of the range for its autonomy. It would be more interesting for the same price, to buy a desktop or a tablet, more powerful on the part autonomy and web surfing.

The EZbook X3- the right model for streaming and 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. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 13.3, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. However, this computer has a criteria that will interest some nomadic users, the weight; here it weighs only 1.4 kg, partly thanks to its small screen size.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
On the sound side, it EZbook X3 has good components: board and integrated speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Celeron N3350, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
With Intel HD Graphics 500, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 6 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 6 ports.Much better than most of the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. Jumper promises 8 hours of battery life; that’s about average. 

The EZbook X3- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?

An intermediate model that can be taken along on an occasional basisEZbook X3. We tested several functions depending on their intended use : for holidays, weekends, or continuously on public transport for work. Here’s what it turned out : Since the sum of its characteristics (weight, size, components) are better than the competition, it is in your best interest to choose this model.
Its weight of 1.4 Kg makes it easy to move. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 13.3 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The screen shows an interesting result.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
With the installation of the processor Intel Celeron N3350, the power consumption is rather important.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this EZbook X3. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Jumper; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 8 hours.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 64 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who will need more space, this EZbook X3 will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Its 13.3 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
The connector part is very interesting, with 6 inputs available. 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…
In brief, this EZbook X3 can be considered useful when you decide to travel.

EZbook X3 the right choice for audio or video editing ?

If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. Clearly, this EZbook X3corresponds perfectly to the need related to this use. Since the last generation designed by Jumper, there have been many improvements on the components. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Celeron N3350. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 64 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, Jumper made the choice to put only one SSD. 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. Here with 64 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.
For the autonomy part, Jumper proposes last generation batteries. For 8 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. That’s pretty much what the other laptops do.
For the connector part, the EZbook X3has the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
It EZbook X3 is consequently well designed for this type of use. And much more if you finally decide to use it only for word processing or web browsing, instead of audio video editing. And at a price that is well ranked.

EZbook X3 the right choice to play online?

It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. Clearly, if your only need is to play games with this EZbook X3, it may be better to go to other models. Clearly, Jumper has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
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 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Our tests have shown that for Jumper this computer is not intended for playing video games. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.With 64 Gb it EZbook X3is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
A better access to wifi on this EZbook X3 that is standard equipped with the 5GHz band. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 1.4 Kg.
Please note that with an autonomy of 8 hours, you will have enough time to play video games requiring few resources.
In the end, we do not recommend this EZbook X3 for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. 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. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. It is equipped with Windows 10.
Among the choices available to you, it will be interesting to take into account the weight in order to facilitate its transport. This model, with its 1.4 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
No numeric keypad comes standard on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
Thanks to the matt treated screen surface, there is almost no reflection of direct sunlight or lamps in the offices. But at the same time, the light intensity is low enough so as not to tire the eyes in the dark.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
The storage of this model, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. 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. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.

The EZbook X3 – in summary

This EZbook X3 will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.

– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
This laptop is average for the following uses:
