Jumper EZBook 3 Pro V4 Latest Batch With More Improvements (Updated)

Jumper EZBook 3 Pro V4 Latest Batch With More Improvements (Updated)

Update #2 I’ve finally got my hands on the new V4 revision, more on that here.

Update: Thanks to Jared @NZUnicorn for confirming this. Gearbest is indeed shipping the latest version now. He just got the new model which should really be called the EZbook 3 Pro V4. One more improvement to add to the list, it has an easy access M.2 SSD hatch now like the Onda Xiaomi 31 I reviewed. So the best version of the EZbook 3 Pro with a full unlocked bios including power limit options in CPU advanced menu, a new precision touchpad, new rubber around the screen and a new M.2 slot! It also apparently chargers faster.

It’s here for $249 on flash sale. I feel like selling my V3 model for this latest v4 revision!

Well, well. It seems Jumper does listen to feedback from customers. Joe in the forum has the latest and greatest revised version of the EZbook 3 Pro with the newest bios version JUMPER10x.P8.WP313R.NHNAUHN02 dated from August. Tweaks in this bios include the power limit option has now been added, so a 100% completely unlocked bios. Disabling the power limit is like that TDP tweak we have been using to increase the performance of the Intel Celeron N3450 and Pentium N4200’s. It really makes a difference, so now with this setting if set to disabled will allow the N3450 to consume more power and turbo longer and higher. Mostly the GPU benefits from this.

It’s almost as if Jumper watched my videos on the tweak and laptops like the Civiltop Air that had it disabled and thought we must include that setting.

The second improvement, the touchpad is now a precision one. Why does that matter? Well, it means we can tweak and disable the gestures and most importantly this type of touchpad has proved to be so much better than the stock standard cheaper non-precision touchpads found in the older EZBook 3 pro models and other Apollo lake laptops.

And the last tweak, more rubber between the lid to help stop any metal on metal rubbing when the lid is closed.

The new models are coming out now, but so far only Lightinthebox is confirmed to be shipping it. Gearbest stock might also be the new one, but we need to confirm this first.

  1. Will there be another upgrade anytime soon, like another processor maybe? I love the design of the laptop but I’m in doubt that the CPU will be able to keep up with the stuff I want to use it for (Word, Excel, Adobe Reader, Chrome, Spotify at the same time).

    • It runs plenty fast using a lean version of Linux like Manjaro XFCE, Lubuntu, or Linux Mint MATE.

      • Edit: … for best performance of course installed on a reasonably fast SSD drive.

        • I thought linux didn’t run well with driver issues. Was that not the case?

        • My 128GB version from LightInTheBox, bought this month (December 2017) came with 64GB of the faster Samsung eMMC storage plus 64GB reasonable speed Foresee brand SSD. Runs fine and I’ll prob upgrade the SSD to a faster/bigger one as prices fall.

  2. I odered mine a few weeks ago and it just arrived. I guess i have the Version 4 since i have the easy acces ssd slot BUT
    i don’t have the option to disable the power limit off the cpu in the bios?? 🙁 they seem to change it up at will…
    i got it with an sandisk emmc at least though…

    whats weird is, that i cannot make the @ sign … i’ve set the language to german and everything else works but not that.
    But i don’t have any wifi right now (only using hotspot of my phone at the moment) so i cannot download drivers which
    MIGHT fix the issue altough i’ve never had that issue ever before….?

  3. The deal on gearbest is with a 4800 mah battery. I read in the specs that a ezbook 3 pro has a 9600 mah battery. So did they remove one battery cell or is it wrong on the gearbest site? Otherwise the deal on geekbuying is better i think.

    • I also want to know this. I reat that there ve to be 2 x 4800mah batteries, but on GB really says 1x. So can sb help? At the Moment I dont want to disassamble it.

      • Their info is incorrect. It’s 9600mAh in total or 37Wh. I know from opening mine up.

        • gearbest does this mistake quite often don’t trust them

          • I never trust them. Have huuuge Problems at the Moment with Support in other cases

  4. For me, this laptop does everything right except for the keyboard, which is absolute rubbish. It’s impossible to type at a normal pace without it missing out on keys. Can anyone confirm this is an issue with this model’s keyboard? Or was I just unlucky?
    Btw, an external keyboard works just fine, so it’s not a windows issue, like many google searches suggest.

  5. Advice about SSD:
    Will the following SSD work on Ezbook 3 pro V4?
    MyDigitalSSD 256GB Super Boot 2 (SB2) 42mm M.2 2242 NGFF SATA III (6G) SSD Solid State Drive (256GB 2242)

  6. I don’t know what Gearbest are up to, I ordered on the 15th September, order status was in “processing” for over a week, and has been in “packed” for over a week.
    They suggested I cancel my order, but I don’t want to because I paid £185 for it with various discounts, and the price is now £218. I am getting very annoyed with them, particularly because even as I raised the ticket the website said they had more than 50 in stock, and that went up to over 70!

    • I would give you the same advice I gave Tom T in the comments below, i.e. try Lightinthebox. If you paid £185 that is equivalent to $242USD – I paid $239USD last month for this laptop from them. They shipped quickly. Wish Chris could be getting his due for orders placed through them, unfortunately not. Gearbest can be very aggressive with prices but I’ve found them to be a bit dodgy with inventory.

    • I ordered mine on the 7th of Sept. Mine has been packed for well over a week now as well. They told me in a ticket “Your order had been packed first. However, due to some issue, this processing was failed.” Just not sure what that means. How do you pack a product without a product? The app is telling me it has been dispatched.

      I do understand things go sideways sometimes and slow things up. But this is a bit frustrating, especially when you seem them pushing to sell more when you know they are backlogged at least a month on filling existing orders.

      • have the same situation. ordered 6th september and they sent it out on 7th october. seems they also had some chinese festival going on in the first week of october. tracking code says “order doesn’t exist” but I’m not too worried, first tracking will probably show up in a couple days.

        yours should be sent out any time now

        • I am glad they sent yours out. They are telling me there are none in stock (and always seem to say more will be in next week). I ordered on sept 7th and its still in limbo, site says its packed. Starting to get a bit nervous. We had an issue with a group of phones we ordered from them recently, only half made it. Took weeks to get it all straightened out.

      • mine arrived today after the tracking info didn’t show up until today (Hermes germany).
        got the v4 with Samsung eMMC, pretty happy with it.
        Gearbest even included a powerplug adapter, how nice of them. saves me 8€

    • Paul lets us know when yours comes in. I am very curious to see how they are handling this. I will post when the one I ordered shows up as well.

      • mine finally arrived on Tuesday.
        bad news: the courier left it outside in (light rain) behind our bins (garbage cans), and it was bin day.
        good news: nobody saw it and stole it (nor did the bin (garbage collectors) take it away, because luckily the garbage collectors had already taken it.

        • I just re-read it, I meant the bin collectors had been before the delivery, and so it wasn’t taken by them, and neither was it stolen.

        • Crazy thing I ordered mine about a week before yours, mine is still has not shipped. Hmm getting a bit concerned.

  7. I’ve received recently a new Ezbook 3 Pro V4… Also had the Windows Update errors, so I just entered the Windows recovery menu and chose the reset option, deleted all files, and now everything works great… Windows installed all updates, the language pack for my country installed correctly, etc…

    By the way, the “MeiMengMeng” service is still present.

    • me too man. Everything went back to normal. Do you have the audio driver for the speaker? Mine won’t find the driver automatically

      • I have 2 version 4s. I reinstalled from win recovery /reset and although win updates then worked, all the MeiMengMeng stuff was still there, so I used belarc advisor free to get the Win 10 serial (just in case) and then downloaded a new windows 10 home iso (Usb stick version) from Microsoft. I then used this for a fresh install. All went well as you’ve said. This created a windows old directory, which I deleted to save space, but contains all the old drivers if needed. I also deleted the hidden c: MSCONFIG directory that contained the MeiMengMeng files.
        The only driver that was missing was the Realtek audio one: Working Realtech audio drivers from alink on a thread on this site https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzV26nSYyt9OazdZWHBTWEFPeE0/view sorted it. Just need to remember that a future restore from windows recovery will re introduce the MeiMengMengfiles.
        Hope this helps.

      • My sound didn’t work too when I got mine. I tried updating the drivers to no avail. What eventually worked for me is: go to BIOS by tapping ESC during boot up, go to chipset -> South Cluster Configuration -> HD-Audio Config -> change Audio DSP Compliance Mode to UAA (as opposed to Non-UAA) -> Save Changes and Reset.

    • I tried resetting the laptop from Windows recovery, now I ended up the the blue screen of death ?, I am going to try and reinstall from a iso

  8. Hi,
    I plan to backup the EMMC contents before first Windows boot. I want to boot with Parted Magic so I can clone the disk with Clonezilla. Anyone done this or something similar already?

  9. Ezbook 3 pro vs Ezbool 3L pro? Which one recommended?
    As Bearbest cannot deliver on time, they suggested refund or buy another item. Things are more complicated. I really want SSD hatch on the back. Geekbuying confirmed me their latest Ezbook 3 pro doesn’t have hatch door. They suggested me, There is one called “Ezbook 3L pro”. All aluminum body, SSD hatch but still pre-sale. I see the item on Gearbest. Is it worth changing ordered item from Ezbook 3 pro to Ezbook 3L pro (aluminum+SSD hatch)? Ez.3L pro is more expensive than the pro I ordered. Any thought?

    • If the specs I have are correct, 3L pro has a 14″ TN glossy screen while 3 pro has a 13.3″ IPS mate.
      Also 3L has an SSD HDD vs the EMMC of the 3 pro.
      I faced the same dilemma and finally stuck with the 3 pro. For the price difference I can buy a 64GB SSD myself.
      One little trick with Gearbest is to use their “Dispatch Faster” button in your order details. Mine had an estimated shipping delay of more than two weeks and it was being put off every day. Then, some days after purchase I used this button and it was shipped the following day. That was 16 days ago and by the tracking information of the postal service now I see that the it is expected to be delivered today to my home.

  10. The EZBook 3 Pro is a great laptop for those looking for a MacBook Air clone running on Windows at a fraction of the price. There’s not much to improve on here, given the price, but if we had to pick something, we’d like to see better battery life. Moreover https://www.techinpost.com/jumper-ezbook-3-pro-review-notebook-laptop-ultrabook/

  11. Guys, help
    I do not understand what version is sold for lightinthebox
    In the reviews all write that they received the newest version (4).
    And the support answers that they are selling a laptop without a hatch at the bottom of the laptop.
    Does someone have information?

    • I ordered from Lightinthebox because the news on TechTablets said they are selling version 4. When I asked their support they told me no hatch on the bottom, but I took a chance anyway. I’m glad I did because they sent me version 4 :). I’m using it right now and it’s a great laptop for the money. Hope this helps.

      • The support, like Gearbest doesn’t even know what they are selling. They just look at the images of the V3 one and say no. My V4 should finally be here this week.

  12. installing an m.2 2280 in my jumper ezbook 3 pro V3
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y48jZ4Yt88I

  13. i received mine v4 and it cpu-z says it have n3350 instead of n3450!

    • Chinese product, seller- so many story on the same product. They are deceiving the customers. Mine is just waiting.

    • where did You order Your v4?

    • I think N3350 is not Pro version.

    • i bought it from gearbest the cpu-z says it has n3350 and 6 gb (so it is the pro model but with 3350 instead of 3450?)
      moreover i think it has something like bloatware on the startup there is a Chinese program in the task bar when i open it it says mainform
      https://imgur.com/SZHpYFm
      https://imgur.com/v9zI2Kv

      • here is screenshot that hwmonitor says 3350 and task manager 6gb https://imgur.com/GqCqXzT

        • strange that N3350 is two core CPU, but i see 4 cores with all different temperatures on screen-shot

      • about bloatware. check info below for search string MeiMengMeng.Win.Clients

      • You sure its not a bug in the software?
        CPU-Z on mine says 3350 in “Name” AND 3450 in “Specification”
        HWInfo says 3450.

    • Can you be sure it’s not N3450? I just received my “V4” unit and I use HWiNFO64 and it shows “Intel Celeron N3450”. I downloaded cpu-z to give it a try and you’re right it does say “Intel Celeron N3350” in the “Name” box but in the “Specification” box it says “Intel Celeron CPU N3450”. It says that for processor under the “Bench” tab too.

  14. Mine seems to have the dodgy wifi fault where speeds are atrociously slow, it only has 1 bar of signal, drops connections etc. Noooooo…….

    Currently getting around 12Mbps on average, sometimes dropping to 2Mbps etc.

    Not happy at all 🙁

    • Try updating the driver, but it does sound like one of the two antennas is may be unplugged in transit or not clipped in correctly. If you feel brave, open it up and check the plugs. If not get in touch for a replacement unit.

      • Checked the antennas – they looked fine – pushed them in again to check, but no improvement 🙁

        Don’t think there’s a return depot here in the UK. Shipping back to China is going to be ridiculously pricey 🙁

    • Yes me too. The V4 signal isn’t that great, definitely the first version had better signal than this.

  15. I don’t know how everyone is getting theirs delivered so fast. I ordered from Gearbest on August 15th and it still hasn’t even shipped yet. I opened a ticket and they said that the Ezbook 3 Pro was not instock anywhere and was backordered and wasn’t expected to ship until Sept 5-15th. It is now Sept 7th and it has yet to ship.

    • Not good, I guess it’s down to luck. Sounds like the V3 ran out of stock and now they are waiting for more V4 units. Send another message to support?

      • After a full month of waiting I contacted Gearbest support again and they said it was discontinued and that the only options were to choose another product or be refunded. I ordered the same 64gb silver model with dual band WiFi as everyone else (that they are STILL taking orders for mind you!). Worst online shopping experience of my life.

        • I ordered mine on the exact same day that you did and got V4 two weeks later in the USA via DHL. It looks like you got an incompetent support representative. They have been shipping those. I’m not sure what you can do except ask for a manager to resolve your customer service problem.

        • Get a refund and try Lightinthebox $239USD – I ordered mine on Sep 1 and it arrived yesterday and it’s the “V4” unit everyone is talking about here.

          • I got the refund and took your advice. Hopefully Lightinthebox doesn’t make me wait a month. They seem to promise 2-3 day shipping. My experience is that the shipping time isn’t the issue though. It’s how long it takes to actually ship the thing in the first place. What is interesting is that every time I check the listing for the Ezbook 3 Pro the processing time is different. Anywhere from 24 hours to 1-3 business days to 5-7. It’s literally different every hour.

        • I hope it works out for you! This was my first purchase from Lightinthebox & I was satisfied. They double-boxed the unit which gave it extra protection. Here’s how shipping worked out for me: they confirmed payment on Aug 31 and shipped on Sep 1. For International ship they used an outfit called SF Express. Per SF Express tracking, it took 4 days (including the weekend) for it to get on a plane out of the country. It arrived in the US on Sep 7. After customs & trucking it out of New York city to my town, I got delivery on Sep 12.

          • Did you have to pay any sort of import fee?

          • My experience with Lightinthebox has already been much better than Gearbest. It shipped in the time period they promised and is currently on its way to New York. I’m not sure what Gearbest’s issue is with the Ezbook 3 Pro but every time I check it always seems to give an estimated shipping date that is at least 2 weeks out and most of the time Lightinthebox has it guaranteed to ship in 24 hours.

          • I received my Ezbook 3 Pro V4 from Lightinthebox today! I highly suggest them over Gearbest. A lot of the time items are guaranteed to ship within 24 hours. In my case I was given a longer estimate but they stayed true to their word. Shipping from China is as fast as one could expect and final delivery in the US is through UPS Ground. The only reason it took this long for it to arrive is because UPS misrouted my package at first but I don’t blame Lightinthebox for that. As far at the laptop itself I think it is great!. Excellent build quality and I got a fast Samsung EMMC! Disabled the weird Chinese program right away and enabled Windows Update and everything works. Came preinstalled with the Creators Update so there were only a few updates to install. I have no experience with the previous versions but the touchpad on this is great! Very responsive. Almost no flex to the keyboard. If I had one complaint it is that the screens seems a little dim to me even at 100% but for the money I can’t really complain. Ordered a Kingspec 256gb SSD for $70 which should arrive soon!

    • Actually I ordered mine on Aug 4th and only got it last week. I was rewarded with the V4 at the end. They ship very slowly, but keep in mind that the shipping is free.

    • I placed my order on 6 September. Gearbest told me the product is out of stock. So,they say it will take another 5-10 days pushing from previous 3-5 days. I told them I don’t want left over v3 without M.2 Hatch. They promise I will get the latest with SSD hatch/door. Fingers. Crossing.

    • You can try to press “Dispatch faster” button in “My Orders”. I do this and my order change the status to “Shipped out”. Ordered 31 Aug. Shipped out: 04 Sep.

      • What really does it mean? Mine is out of stock. If I press ‘dispatch faster’ , it will change to ‘shipped out status’, right? Wouldn’t it create any problem inspite without being sent me tracking number?

        • I clicked on “dispatch faster” now. I will report how fast they delivery it.

        • No, I think is just increase order priority for warehouse

    • No I didn’t pay an import fee or anything like that, just the cost of the laptop itself $239USD.

      • I had trouble with Gearbest before. I thought things might have changed. But same as before. Ordered in 6th September, pushing back and forth the delivery date. They never say specific information about delivery date. I should have ordered from other seller.My mistake.

  16. if you remove the back cover (v4) are you still able to install an m.2 2280 ssd?

    • Yes, but you have to remove the black plastic around the slot. And then remove the screw. Tape it in, not perfect but it works.

      • is that sure? i am asking for the v4 with the hatch on the back for the ssd. i have the ezbook 3 pro v3 version and i know that it is possible to install a 2280 ssd. but i am thinking of buying the v4 now and giving away the v3. and i just want to know if it can fit the 2280 ssd. isn’t the 2280 get in the way of that hatch?

        • Yes. I have the v4 and also a m.2 2280 ssd in it

          • okay thank you for the quick reply! i guess i am buying it then!!

  17. This now $219.99 on Gearbest, the lowest it’s ever been.

  18. Hello, just for information, as of today, Gearbest is listing à 128 GB version of the Ezbook 3 Pro.

    • It has 64GB SSD in m.2 slot in addition to 64GB eMMC. Not worth it

  19. Did Jumper publish the bios anywhere to flash it onto the older revisions? Or did they change the hardware too much for it to be compatible :|?
    Would really love to have the Power-Limit options on mine, especially since the RW-tweak does not work on Linux – where I would need it the most.

    • Not sure if the hardware changed, the touchpad has. But no bios we can download that I’ve seen.

  20. The V4 seems to have a ribbon connected to the back plate, preventing me from taking the back plate off. Anyone else notice this?

    • Took the whole bottom panel off my V4 that just arrived and there was nothing attached to it to prevent me

    • No ribbon cable on mine. Back cover comes off easily.

  21. Why there is differences on wifi model for Ezbook 3 pro v4 those selling at Geekbuy vs Gearbest? All seems identical but here is the difference:
    Geekbuying,WIFI: 802.11 a/b/g wireless internet.
    Gearbest,WIFI: 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless internet

    • Geekbuying listed the wrong specs for the Tbook4 I purchased from them (reason why I returned it for refund) so it could be just a bad listing on their product page.

  22. This just popped up on GearBest – this sounds like the v4 – right? All the different models are so confusing
    https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Jumper-EZbook-3L-Pro-Silver-384368.html

    • geekbuying*

      • looks like I missed the ‘L’ – this is the 14″

    • Yeah, the L is the same body as the Tbook4 and EZBook 3 Plus I think. I agree, very confusing!

  23. Does anyone know if this gold version has the m.2 slot or improved touchpad? http://www.lightinthebox.com/jumper-laptop-13-3-inch-intel-apollo-quad-core-6gb-ram-64gb-ssd-hard-disk-windows10-intel-hd-6gb_p5699143.html
    I’m sure I read somewhere that someone received a gold one with the m.2 slot from LITB –
    tried contacting their support but to no avail. I would be best grabbing from gearbest the silver version (v4) – right?

    • It’s in description.
      Note: this original golden laptop Ezbook3 pro do not have M. 2 expansion port.
      Gearbest and aliexpress sell silver v4.

      • Great to know that M.2 in the prodution description means V4 Ezbook 3 Pro. Any Coupon running right now?

  24. Hi All,

    Can someone please confirm which SSD from Ali are supported? I’m thinking to order one of the v4s, but I would like to upgrade it with an SSD from the start,

  25. I am following the comments closely. My eyes are focusing on Ezbook 3 plus, Chuwi lapbook air or I may settle my feeling with Ezbook 3 pro, v4 as you guys call. Please let us know how to identity this v4 when I put an order.

    • Be aware that the plus models seems to be pretty bad according to two users that have gotten theirs.

      • Really? The Core M3 plus model is bad? Oh told say that I’ll have mine hopefully this week.

        • Yeah we got a thread in the forum. Two people have confirmed that the screen seems to be a really bad tn panel @ 57hz, speakers not working, Windows not activated, wobbly screen, and mayby even a faulty battery.

          • Shocking and big warning. Thanks for updating this info.

          • Thanks for the heads-up. Damn, well I’ll see when mine arrives this week. Real shame considering how good the EZBook 3 Pro is

  26. just a heads up to admin..
    Are this an new Xiaomi Mi air with 16gb ram with an i7 8550U and MX150 dGPU in play.. (called Timi TM1701)
    look at these values. (useally the Xiamo MI air are synonym with the TIMI lineup?)
    https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/1027651

    • Hmm looks doubtfull with 4776 single and 15.617 multi scores in Geek4 (class U, obvius quad)
      and the MX150 does signifies relative low power ultrabook.
      https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3736680
      8MB L3 cache. i7 8550U on TIMI TM1701.. any familiar with what laptop this is. (everything else in Geekbench scoreinfo with TIMI TM label are Xiaomi Mi airs laptops.

      • Thank you for the info. Very interesting! Just a minor upgrade, that could be in the new top of the line i7 model.

  27. Chris, you have no idea what your website / Youtube channel is doing to me!

    So, after hours of pondering, I finally decided on the Onda Xiaoma 21. Wahoo I thought (should arrive next week). Perfect. Then I see this bit of news and all sorts of chaos has blown up in my mind, and I now have an EZBook Pro 3 on order as well.

    My shelf is going to look like the one in your apartment at this rate lol

    • When going on Chinese websites, the hardest thing to do is not to order too much crap that will later sit on the shelfs…

      • I need to get bigger shelves 🙂

    • Haha well, it will take a bit to bet my shelf. I also have one like it at home full of stuff!

  28. Trying to find out if Gearbest are selling version 4… It’s like talking to a brick wall. Assistant told me they don’t have an M.2 SSD slot, let alone a door in the bottom!!! Useless, don’t think I’ll take the risk as I can’t send it back if it isn’t version 4…

    • I took the risk because about 3-4 guys now have confirmed they have the V4 model from Gearbest, in the comments here and the forum. That’s enough for me. Gearbest’s customer services staff have no fricken clue most of the time!

      • How to identify “V4”? Is there even such a thing? If it has the precision touchpad & 100% unlocked BIOS but no door to the M2 slot, is it V3.5? 🙂 Can the “new” units with ALL the improvements be identified by a serial number or BIOS version?

        • Easiest way right now is to simply take a look at the back to see if there is a small hatch for the M.2 SSD. Only the V4 has that as of now.

    • I submitted a question yesterday to Gearbest asking whether the model they’re selling has the single access door for the M2 slot. Their answer was “Sorry there is no a door on the bottom of the laptop to access the M2 slot.”. So take that for what it’s worth.

    • The version sold by Gearbest is the v4 version.

      I ordered mine about 2 weeks ago. Arrived today. Definitely the v4 version, it has m.2 hatch on the underside, 2 rubber lips on edge of screen, dodgy “meimei” app loaded on startup etc.

      • Thanks for the input the Meimei App doesn’t sound good. Very fishy, if you factory reset is it still there? I’ll have mine in a few weeks so will check.

        • Haven’t tried a factory reset (I note there’s an option in the BIOS) but that might be any idea? I’ve disabled the 3 Mei Mei whatevers – an app, a service and something else I can’t remember. Looks clean now but Windows settings need tweaking as they’ve disabled Windows Update by default etc

          • Hello David Stone,
            Could you please explain how to search and disable/delete “MeiMengMeng” stuffs. If you disable/delete, is there any abnormal function on the computer?

      • if you remove the back cover are you still able to install an m.2 2280 ssd?

  29. hello,
    thanks for all the info guys, i would really like to know if it does charge faster???
    thank you 🙂

    • I tested batch 1 vs batch 4 – When laptop is off both charge at the same speed – about 14W. But if laptop is in use , batch 1 will take max 18W of the wall and batch 4 can take over 30W if needed. But maybe they fixed this already in v2 and v3.

      • thanks joe for the reply, did you happen to check how long it took to charge without use and with use? thanks 🙂

        • sorry i meant when it’s in use.

        • I found it took about 3 hours to fully charge while not using it. Is that fast? I don’t know since this is the first Jumper 3 Pro I’ve owned.

      • Hi Joe

        any chance you can clarify whether this model has AC wifi? i just want to make sure that the only thing i need to upgrade is m.2 ssd

        if not can i buy a wifi+bt card from ebay (e.g. one of these 3160/3165/7260 ac cards from itel) and replace the existing one?
        https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=intel+ac+wifi+card&rt=nc&LH_BIN=1

        Thanks

        • TW – You cannot replace the card as it’s soldered onto the mainboard of the laptop. The new models v3 & V4 both have Intel Wireless AC 3165.

          • wow thanks for the quick reply!

            so as long as i buy this + add my own m.2 i pretty much have a perfect apollo lake laptop?!

          • sorry chris, i forgot to also ask what size m.2 i should get?

        • @TW – Yes pretty much the best, nothing comes close to it apart from the Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 but then it doesn’t have the unlocked bios and power limit option. The size SSD you want is 2242, unless you plan to mod, to remove the black frame around the SSD slot and tape in 2280.

          • is there any way to fit a 2260? thats what i can find on ebay atm for cheap

      • Hi Joe
        just a few quick questions

        1) if i get the v4 model does this mean i dont need to do the TDP mod and the computer will always allow a high Tdp based on thermals automatically? anyone know what the max tdp is if thats the case?

        2) do i need to do the copper shim mod on this laptop? if so how thick?
        would one of those soft thermal pads suffice instead of copper shim?

        thanks

        • You can fix a 2260, just have to remove the whole back and then do a bit of modding. Removing the plastic housing around the slot and then taping the drive down. I installed a 2280 in my old one with no issues.

  30. I purchased the EZBook 3 Pro for $229 with a promo code from GearBest on Aug 15 and received V4 two weeks later (DHL). Everything worked perfectly out of the box except the Windows Update service which was turned off (why?). When I saw that tiny access door, I couldn’t resist ordering a 128GB KingSpec M.2 SSD from AliExpress for $45 (with coupon). I hope to clone the EMMC with Macrium Reflect Free. Version 4 is an unbelievable value especially when on flash sale.

  31. Well crap just received mine last week and it’s the v3 one.

    I have opted for one of these Kingspec m2 ssds too, they Aliexpress shop said they will cover 3 year warranty so I guess I am covered if something goes bad.

  32. I just got my Jumper Pro 3 today and it is the version 4 as shown here. After installing a M.2 SSD the sound stopped working. Took me half a day of tinkering to find out how to fix it. Hopefully someone finds this useful: go to BIOS by tapping ESC during boot up, go to chipset -> South Cluster Configuration -> HD-Audio Config -> change Audio DSP Compliance Mode to UAA (as opposed to Non-UAA) -> Save Changes and Reset.

    Also make sure to update the Intel Wireless AC drivers.

    • Thanks for the info, will be handy if others have any issues.

    • It would help when you guys have done something to post a link/URL to the proper place to find them. Saves people time.

  33. Just confirming I ordered from Gearbest on Aug 23 and the newer version was delivered to Canada on Aug 28! I now have a V3 and V4.

    The trackpad is 1000% times better. It would be nice if there was some kind of BIOS setting that we could make on the V3 to make the trackpad more usable.

    ONE BAD THING I noticed… it seems there is some kind of Chinese spyware loaded on the V4 which I confirmed isn’t on the V3.

    I think it is spyware, but haven’t had a chance to run it through any scans yet… but it certainly looks like it. A new windows service “msdevice” was installed; it disabled windows update (i seen this on the V3; but no spyware?).

    The service keeps it’s files in C:\MSConfig in a hidden folder. I’ve disabled the service until I know more about what this is… anyone else find the same??

    • Yes, there is something strange : MeiMengMeng.Win.Clients is loaded on startup. After digging a little deeper I found a log file which content indicates that this is some kind of service which uses windows volume activation. It uses slmgr /ipk “windows licence key” command. I will explore this a bit more…

      • That’s interesting, please let us know what you find. If it doubt people should just do a new install (backup drivers first)

        • Hi, great site!!
          I’ve just received an ezbook 3 pro v4 from Gearbest yesterday and was delighted with the quality and the trackpad upgrade etc. I too have found that I’ve got the msdevice and MeiMengMeng.Win Clients sevices running and the hidden folder in C:/MSConfig. I’m concerned about spyware as I’m going to set the laptop up for my daughter.
          Your recommendation is for a new install:
          Q1: Will I need a new licence key, or will a standard Win 10 home install disk/ usb image, pick up the original licence key from the bios? (I have a Win 10 Pro digital licence somewhere that I could use if I have to).
          Q2: What’s the easiest way to back up the drivers before re-install?
          Many thanks

      • Volume License Activation (KMS) is definitely fishy for separately sold devices. This looks like an emulator for a KMS service that executes with every boot in order to reset the 180 day activation grace period of business activation. Quite common way to “pirate” Windows 10 Professional.

        However, shouldn’t the Ezbook 3 Pro v4 have the Home version of Win10?! KMS activation does not work for Home editions, Professional and Education only.

        • It would have the home version. Sounds odd because the EZbook 3 Pro V3’s all have valid licensing and installing my own copy of Windows 10 Home it will activate without any issues as a digital license I think it said. (Win 10’s pulling the key from the bios SLIC)

          • I think a coworker might have messed something up there. It does not make sense to try activating Win10 Home with KMS at all, it is literally impossible. As you said, the key is in the BIOS and once it synced with the MS servers at first activation, the key is bound to the machine and can always be activated with anothe copy of Win10 home.

            The only difference would be the very specific “Win10 Home Chinese Domestic Market” version, which actually only activates the Chinese verssion of Win10. I’ve seen this aswell in your videos just like the temporal licenses, which I’ve actually never seen before. You never stop learning I guess.

          • I disabled those bogus services. Even did a Malwarebytes spyware scan, nothing found. Will there be any problems by disabling them?

          • Chris, sorry to bother… just received a v4 and it says Windows cant be activated cause the key has been used in other device. Can i purchase a valid license and use it? I remember reading you in the past buying a cheap license in eBay (if i am right) and was planning to do so.

            Thanks a lot!

    • I also have the same issue on my V4 that just arrived (ordered Aug 22), its got the Meimengmeng.win.clients in startup services, which I disabled, then rebooted but it still keeps starting as a service by itself every boot. Also Windows Update will not run, gives an error, possibly because Windows Update service is stopped (wuauserv), and It give another error when I try to manually start wuauserv. It is running the latest version of Win10, (1703), so up to date now, but it still a pain that it can’t get future updates. All signs point to be it being some sort of ‘unofficial’ copy

  34. Aliexpress official store claims that new batch is limited by 200 notebooks and they don’t sell it via aliexpress.
    Q: Hello. I just found at the forum that already exist new version of this notebook with new SSD M2 slot with door at the bottom of device, rubber frame of the screen, new touchpad and unlocked CPU power limit. Is it true? Thank you very much.
    A: Dear friend, We will check and pack it well before sending, no worry! We will send you a russian keyboard sticker as gift. We don’t sell this new version on Aliexpress, because it only have 200 pc and don’t produce in the future. Best regards

    Lightinthebox and gearbest can take your order (or preorder as they often do) and then just cancel it.

    • Only 200 units! That doesn’t seem right if Lightinthebox, geekbuying and gearbest retailers are all selling it. maybe 200 units were the first order for each retailer. Maybe they got it exclusively from Jumper, which is why they don’t sell it in the official Jumper store?

      • Jumper official store on aliexpress is already selling newest revision. My guess is that they tried to clear v3 stocks that way.

        • Ah, that now makes sense. WOuld have been strange for them to not sell their own improved version of the V4. Anyone I bought one to check out for the site here, will post my first impressions and findings once it’s here. It’s a good two weeks away as I used snail mail.

  35. just forgot to mention:

    there is at least in the lightinthebox shop an edition with a 128 GB EMMC for 309€ .
    Does not really make so much sense if you plan to add an SSD because for +60€ you get a nearly new 256 GB SSD with 16 hours usage from a new Laptop where the 256 GB had been replaced at arrival by a bigger one.

    • Yeah better off just buying your own SSD that way you know the spec and as you said, get the larger size too.

    • Where can i get sad for such lovely price?

      • maybe those Aliexpress KIngspec ones?

        • Took the plunge on one of those Kinspec ones, yesterday, can be optain for just over 70USD shipped.
          the speed values does look promissing, for an el cheapo brand’ssd in only 22×42 formfactor there often tends to perform a little bit slower then the longer ones..
          but the write-speeds will vary a lot, ewen thow same sata3 spec in play. from devive to device, perhaps also from ssd’batch to batch.

          Purchased mine 256GB to be used either as a secondary drive for the free sata3 socket in Mi air13 (skylake/940mx v2) so got 2 drives a 256gb pm961 nvm’e and 256gb sata3, or to be used in my old coreM teclast X2 pro there still packin native 64gb.
          also purchased new battery for Mi air13 to have on hand, as mine got huge drain procent when it arrived 9.3%, and already down to 16.3% wasted, and from Techtablets inner views it seem to be pretty easy to exchange, and a few screws and a plug’ to put in new battery..
          btw any familiar with where you can get new batteries for teclast X2/X3 systems. so annoying that mine doesnt show battery values at all and you got no info to sense what amount you have left. (reckon defect battery, ewen thow it seem to hold okay with jiuce, just can see the values)

          • 70USD? You can get there here on Aliexpress http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/Vj23N3j for around 48 USD shipped.

          • yup but merely 128GB the 70USD is 256GB that are also often faster then 128gb.
            I couldnt find them cheaper then 74USD + cashback. so around 70USD for 256GB..
            I did look into a 512GB but not much gain in price, not the same gain like there is from fx 128gb (45 to 50USD) and where there only ½ prive more before you can get 256gB.. from 256GB to 512GB it almost look like double the price, of 256GB..

            I was planning to use it as storage drive, also for games as im a little supprised how potent the Mi air13 actually are from an ultrabook perspective, and damn those games, they cost close to nothing hence steam/origin/gog/uplay-codes, but filling up, its like 30 to 60GB each.. they are certainly eating up the 256GB PM961 drive fast. 🙂 but do cherise that is got 2 M.2 slots, not many do got that, wenm thow pci & sata3 restricted.

            Btw Chris, when you reviewing tablets and laptops, how to you store all those games, you often test with, like witcher3, GTA5, Tomb’raider… I reckon you dont take them down online again and again. (do you have them on some secondary harddrive in zipped form, that you can just transfer and then install on a new device and then log in by credentials??,

          • I almost bought the KingSpec 256GB M.2 SSD for near $70 but realized that the cheaper $48 128GB is plenty for my needs. Although the 256GB may be faster on paper, is it fast enough to see any real world difference?

          • No, the 128gb versus 256GB it wont make any real difference in real life, its mainly on marks, where these drives often get faster they more space they carries, but it aint a lot.
            one thing that does seem to matter, is the item you put them into, where they seem to vary a hole lot.
            you shouldnt think this was the exact same sata3 m.2 Kingspec 256gb drive here.

            so the device you use it in, ,seems to be the main sinner for bottlenecks.
            Not sure how either Mi air3 m.2 free sata3 slots performs or how fx Teclast X2 sata3 m.2 slots will handle the kingspec (one of these i will use it in)..but for me the min 256gb was crucial, so I had some drive to lean on, but on the other hand, it aint the wold if you have to exchange and purchase new, it only cost 5USD to make an old one of these into an pretty fast USB3 storage thump drive device with an small casing with USB3 port so you can still use it for something (sadly his is not something you can do with fx NVMe drives, as NVMe doesnt play along with USB as fare as I can notice)
            I cant find any adapter sata or usb suited for NVMe (keyM) and thats a shame’ I got a 256GB intel p600 just laying in the closet sinec black friday 2016 and got no way to use it as the only device in household with PCI x4 is Mi air13 and that allready comes with an PM961 that are ewen faster..
            If anybody familiar with an USB or sata3 adapter for KeyM (aka NVMe) please let me now, sure it will be at way limited speed, but thats fine just wanne take advantage of it, to some extend.

          • OMG, what happened to the write speeds? Do you have an explanation for the differences?

        • Perhaps some limtasions in the bios in play, that limits the write on the EZ 3 pro, but generally it does vary a lot from produkt to produkt the bandwidtch you have at hand thrue the sockets, ewen if its the same s’ata3 format.

      • German eBay or Kleinanzeigen.
        These are used SSD out oft brandnew Laptops where customers exchange that on arrival to 512 GB, most likely Thinkpads.
        Specs good and affordable but the shorts ones are not so often sold.

  36. Lovely to see how they are constantly improving and listening to the feedback. This will certainly benefit their sales even more. Now I just hope all these goodies will be included in the Ezbook 3 Plus as well. Especially the precision touchpad really makes a difference to me!

    • My EZbook 3 Plus just shipped. I should have it soon so will find out by the end of the week.

      • Nice :)! So excited for your first impressions and hands-on video.

  37. Crap… Just bought this and got one without M.2 slot, but with AC-wlan and fast EMMC. Now I want this ?

  38. Hi Chris,
    Surbook is listed in Gearbest and Dispatch: Ships between Sep 1 – Sep 4

    https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_683978.html?wid=21

    • Thanks. I have coming soon I hope from the Indiegogo crowd funder

  39. Thanx
    Waiting news like this day by day
    Continue your great work, sir!

  40. I wonder if it’s possible to upgrade the touchpad on the earlier versions?

    • You would need the part number and new touchpad then do a swap. Not worth it I think, best to sell land by the new one. I doubt we will be able to source the touchpad.

  41. Hello,

    the lightingbox shop has 3 different offers. Which one is the right, new one?

    https://m.lightinthebox.com/de/search?q=Ezbook+jumper

    Thanks

    • I don’t know if it is possible to know which is the “new” one or whether they are even selling it. Does anyone else have an idea? I have ordered the USD $239 unit from Lightinthebox, I will let everyone here know how it is configured including whether there is an access door on the bottom for the M2 slot.

      • I am following the comments closely. My eyes are focusing on Ezbook 3 plus, Chuwi lapbook air or I may settle my feeling with Ezbook 3 pro, v4 as you guys call. Please let us know how to identity this v4 when I put an order.

    • My unit from Lightinthebox arrived and it’s the complete improved version 4 with door on the bottom, improved touchpad , and wireless AC. I’m really impressed with the build quality and performance overall. The slower ssd is noticeable but okay when you consider what you’re getting in place of it. And very easy to replace with a faster and if you want to. The screen is great, the touchpad is actually nice to use! I disabled most gestures and just use it to tap and 2 finger scroll.

      • *replace with a faster ssd

        Darn spell check! ?

        • It is nice to hear good news. Others reporting wrong product, defects etc etc. Crossing fingers waiting mine.
