As an introduction to this analysis
Is the EZbook 2SE for you?Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.So we ran tests on Jumper EZbook 2SE to find out what it was worth.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
EZbook 2SE 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 2SE is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by Jumper are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 12 inches size. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Cherry Trail Z8350; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. 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. With less than a 2 Gb of RAM, it EZbook 2SE is a fair one. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the EZbook 2SE, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. With only 64 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. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
In the end, with an autonomy of 8 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.
The EZbook 2SE- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this EZbook 2SE is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
Equipped with a small screen size, 12 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.2 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. 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.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this EZbook 2SE. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Cherry Trail Z8350, which today is rather light for this kind of use. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel HD Graphics 400, which with 2 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Regarding the connectivity part, Jumper has made efforts with available 3 ports. It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
As for battery life, it EZbook 2SE can allow you to have a multimedia use in nomadic mode. You have 8 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average.
EZbook 2SE compatible with on the move use ?
An intermediate model that can be taken along on an occasional basisEZbook 2SE. We have analysed different scenarios : depending on whether it will be used for work, with bus-metro-train travel, or just for holidays and weekends. The bottom line is this : If you need to go on holiday and commuting, and because of its configuration size/weight/quality materials, it is a very good choice.
Its weight of 1.2 Kg makes it easy to move. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 12 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.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
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.
At the same time, the laptop processor Intel Cherry Trail Z8350 is struggling; in terms of power it does less well than its competitors, and consumes a lot of energy.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this EZbook 2SE. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Jumper; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 8 hours before the breakdown.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 64 Gb SSD hard drive. 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 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 12 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
On the connector side, it EZbook 2SE has 3 ports. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
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 the same, this EZbook 2SE is interesting for those who travel.
The EZbook 2SE to make audio or video editing.
The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. It appears that this EZbook 2SEmeets this need perfectly. With these components, Jumper puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Windows 10 system.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Cherry Trail Z8350 does best. 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. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The EZbook 2SE has only got one, with total 64 Gb storage for your movies and music. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. Indicated for an autonomy of 8 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. That’s pretty much what the other laptops do.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it EZbook 2SE 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. 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.
It EZbook 2SE is consequently well designed for this type of use. Perfectly designed for audio video use. And for the right price/quality ratio.
The EZbook 2SE- the right model to play with?
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Our tests have shown that yhis EZbook 2SE wasn’t designed for video games. 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.
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
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Since Jumper has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.64 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
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.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.2 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
By offering 8 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
In the end, we do not recommend this EZbook 2SE for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.
The EZbook 2SE for office automation.
Jumper has chosen to respond to all users who wish to have a basic use of their EZbook 2SE. 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.
One of the big advantages of a laptop is naturally its ability to follow you when you’re on the move. This model, with its 1.2 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. In fact, if you want one, it will be necessary to buy a pad connected via the usb port.
Jumper chose the matt tile option for thisEZbook 2SE that does not reflect light. With less or no glare, this screen will also stay cleaner for longer.an advantage when working on the screen several hours.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 64 Gb. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
Ultimately, this EZbook 2SE is an intermediate choice. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.
The EZbook 2SE in conclusion
This EZbook 2SE will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
This laptop is average for the following uses:
– travel use
– office tasks
Also, we suggest this laptop on :
– making audio and video editing
