As a preamble to this test
Experienced users do not have the same needs as beginners. You are looking for a laptop and you hesitate between several models.Some computers have power, others have more basic features.So we ran tests on Jumper EZbook X4Pro to find out what it was worth.
So you’ll know what it’s worth at the end of this article.
EZbook X4Pro compatible with internet use?
Because a computer is above all a tool for leisure and educational use (browsing e-commerce or information sites, writing e-mails, etc.), you need to make sure that it will stand the test of time and that it is of high quality.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 X4Pro.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Material that seem to be well-designed.
A medium-sized, 14 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. Unlike some competitors, this model does not have a touch screen. It’s a shame because, when you get this EZbook X4Pro on your lap, you’ll see that it’s not so easy to move the cursor with the touchpad.
The materials used for the screen, keyboard and touchpad still seem to be of good quality. It is hoped that the other internal components of this laptop are future-proof; usually a lot of attention is Jumper paid to the design of its products and the one tested should benefit from this.
With a processor Intel BroadWell i3 5005U, Jumper offers an already outdated technology. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. 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.
The 256 Gb make this laptop a mid-range laptop in terms of available space. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. Jumper comes with this EZbook X4Pro a laptop that you’ll keep for a few years before it becomes obsolete.
In the end, with an autonomy of 8 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. This is standard for this range of laptops, and for the type of battery it is equipped with. 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.
EZbook X4Pro for videos?
You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! Jumper offers the EZbook X4Pro perfect for that. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
In order to see if it will meet your needs, we have tested it for audio and video use.
Jumper decided to make this laptop a very versatile product. With its 14 inches and resolution of 1920×1080, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. And in film display mode, you’ll have excellent visual quality with bright, realistic images. Clearly, big enough to tire your eyes when watching movies, but also rather light (1.4 kg) when you have to carry it.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
For the sound part, the EZbook X4Pro is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel BroadWell i3 5005U, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel HD Graphics 5500, which with 8 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.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 3 ports.Much better than most of the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. You have 8 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average.
Is EZbook X4Pro planned for travelling ?
Easy to carry, and usable wherever you go. We therefore analysed this EZbook X4Pro from the point of view of nomadic use. 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.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It’s one of the best in its class. When sitting with the computer on your lap, it is perfectly wedged to prevent it from tipping over. One of the reasons is its 14 inches screen.
Thin, lightweight laptops such as this EZbook X4Pro do not generally have touch screens. If you’re only doing it with the mouse, don’t forget it in the satchel. Another possibility is to use the trackpad on the keyboard.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
With the installation of the processor Intel BroadWell i3 5005U, the power consumption is rather important.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. 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 256 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.Thanks to this, Jumper was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.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.
Knowing that you’ll have to carry this laptop by plane, train, or other means, it’s handy. The EZbook X4Pro is right in the middle compared to the competition with 14 inches and an acceptable weight.
The connector part is very interesting, with 3 inputs available. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
In conclusion, it can be considered that this EZbook X4Pro can be used for travel purposes.
EZbook X4Pro the right choice for audio or video editing ?
The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. With this EZbook X4Pro, you can be sure you have the right machine. Since the last generation designed by Jumper, there have been many improvements on the components. The parallel processing of tasks with Windows 10 are perfectly suited for audio or video editing.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel BroadWell i3 5005U does best. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, Jumper made the choice to put only one SSD. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The EZbook X4Pro has only got one, with total 256 Gb storage for your movies and music. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. The available battery life is of 8 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. That’s pretty much what the other laptops do.
For the connector part, the EZbook X4Prohas 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. 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.
With the EZbook X4Pro, you’re moving towards a very good product. 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.
This is a good product to start doing audio-visual editing.
EZbook X4Pro the right choice to play online?
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Jumper in terms of components – the chip, the processor generation, or the quality of cooling – make this an average laptop for gaming. But if you’re used to playing the latest games of the moment, you’ll soon reach the limits.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. 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.
For most games, this model will be suitable for gaming mode. A good compromise that justifies the choice of this model.
A space of 256 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
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.
On the practical transport side, this model is one of the lightest on the market, with 1.4 Kg.
Please note that with an autonomy of 8 hours, you will have enough time to play video games requiring few resources.
It EZbook X4Pro is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. You can also use it for word processing if you need it.

If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. It is equipped with Windows 10.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. An almost featherweight of 1.4 Kg.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
Our tests have verified that the matt treated screen limits the effects of 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.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. About 256 Gb, more than enough for office use.
Ultimately, this EZbook X4Pro is an intermediate choice. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.
