Jumper EZBook 3 Pro Review Online

The review for the EZbook 3 Pro went up yesterday on the YouTube channel and today my rating of 8.4. Which means it’s one of the best Celeron N3450 laptop’s I’ve reviewed so far. I love this build on this thing, all metal. The keyboard is a massive step over the EZBook 2 and 3’s keyboards of flex and bounce. This one is firm, good to type on. The extra 2GB of RAM helps Windows feel a bit faster, sadly they didn’t add wireless AC so those of you out there looking to push more than 54 Mbps up and down will be disappointed and have to restore to using a USB adaptor if you want wireless AC.

The screen is decent, but not as bright as it could be. But since it’s anti-glare the brightness is still good enough and no annoying reflections. Performance is decent for this type of chipset. Thermals are also great. Overall a nice thin and light portable laptop with great battery life. It’s good enough for light tasks, office, web browsing and light gaming. The EZbook 3 Pro review is above and the rating with full detailed Pros and Cons here. For you, Linux lover’s sadly I could not get any distro’s to boot I tried on the laptop.

Gearbest are selling it for $229, but this version doesn’t have the M.2 Slot.

I’ll be reviewing more Apollo Lake laptops, since there are more than there are laptops and they are improving. Coming soon, the CivilTop Air, Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 and possibly the EZBook 3S ( 6GB RAM + 240GB SSD version of the EZbook 3). And maybe the Onda Xiaoma 31, basically the same as this EZB3P, but with Wifi AC 4GB of RAM and fingerprint reader.

Also ordered the Voyo vBook V3 Core i5 7200U model, it was requested a few times. This one coming next month I think.

Chinese tablet news, hands on videos and reviews of the latest Chinese tablets. I don't review or cover just anything, only tablets I think are good enough and worth the attention.

    Did anyone find a way to boot from USB, I am trying to boot Windows installation only, not Linux. Thanks?

    Chris or someone with this laptop – what are the dimensions (width & length)? I don’t trust the Gearbest measurements.

    Gearbest is a joke guys. I’ve order on May 5 (it was on flashsales at 229) and paid by paypal. They just refund me without explications. I send them a message they told me that they cannot sold the product for a long time due to supplier’s issue…
    They just waste my time

    But in the same time they are still taking orders without any stocks

      similar situation: I have ordered first Ezbook 3 PRO om May 2 (paypal) and after 6 days they have refunded me for the same reason. On May 20 I noticed Ezbook 3 PRO in flash sale again and I placed another order. Now after 5 days I have no news, I’ll wait few days and then I’ll ask info again. I

        That’s absolute rubbish, I would take my money elsewhere. Maybe get the M.2 SSD version from Aliexpress?

      Same thing happend to me today. I ordered on 05/12/2017 for the price of 219.99 and 2 weeks had past and it was still pending as processing. Last week I spoke to a live chat rep and he told me that the pc was out of stock and it would take them 7-10 days to resupply. So i was like, I already spent 3 weeks waiting I can spend another 2 BUT today randomly got a refund saying they had supplier issues and could sell it to me yet they are still selling the item on their website. Just bought the version with the m2 slot for 229.99 on geekbuying.com

    Can’t seem to see the silver ezbook 3 pro on taobao at the moment but, I did come across this and thought it was worth mentioning.

    It’s the ezbook 3s.

      The 3s is made of plastic, the 3 Pro is metal, makes quite a difference.

        Oh, ok.

        I’m actually trying to get a silver 3 pro from aliexpress.

    “sadly they didn’t add wireless N” – It’s a typo? I haven’t seen a singe 50$ or higher priced chinese device without 802.11n support in last few years.

    Thanks Chris, excellent review!! now I have more security with my purchase, the performance of this laptop looks very good, the details that you mentioned about the battery are very helpful. I am investigating some options to be able to install linux, the performance of this laptop would go very well with that operating system

      Shame that we can’t seem to boot or install Linux at this point. I hope you can find out how.

      • Profile photo of Matej Dian

        I suggest turning off Secure Boot or similar option in UEFI firmware and use some rolling release distro like Arch Linux since it release new install media every month and provide latest packages and Linux kernel.
