Glossy and supposedly IPS?! That would be even a better batch than the EZbook 3 Plus! Very nice for you that you got a decent device.September 13, 2017 at 11:42 am #72065CMParticipant

On the way, well at least I think it is. I wanted to cancel but they said it was sent now.
Hopefully it will turn out to be a good thing that you couldn’t cancel.September 14, 2017 at 10:34 am #72116NatteParticipant

Just picked mine up. There are some clear flaws with the device but overall it feels solid. The screen is TN for sure, and glossy. Viewing angles look very similar to 3 plus so it’s probably the same screen, also the hinges are way too loose. The keyboard is not the best quality, theres almost no flex but some keys are really unreliable and you have to hit them right in the middle or they either don’t register at all or you get double hits. The touchpad is big and it feels great to use, no issues.September 14, 2017 at 1:42 pm #72122
The 3l pro is supposed to be a lesser version of the 3 pro right? its just that the ezbook 3 pro has been on promotion pretty much throughout its whole lifeSeptember 14, 2017 at 1:50 pm #72123IanParticipant

It’s supposed to be (L)arger version – 14″ vs 13,3″, larger keyboard and touchpad.September 14, 2017 at 2:41 pm #72124
Does it have an SSD? Precision touchpad?September 14, 2017 at 3:00 pm #72126NatteParticipant

Toshiba e-MMC drive.
Precision touchpad – yes.September 14, 2017 at 5:14 pm #72132

isnt that what the plus is? the l here could stand for lite and all evidence is pointing towards that it might be. well to be fair only the display is substantially worse but other than that there is next to no difference between the 3l and the current iteration of the 3 proSeptember 15, 2017 at 10:48 am #72159IanParticipant

3 pro and 3L pro have the same internals – n3450, 6G ram, 64G emmc. Main difference is in screen size, 3L is bigger.
3 plus has m3, 8G ram and 128G emms and doesn’t have pro in its name.September 15, 2017 at 8:54 pm #72179Miroslav ĎuricaParticipant

My 3L pro arrived
- screen angles – good – left-right; and below a verage up-down
- screen is quite bouncing
- keyboard little bit bumpy but usuable
- touchpad – quite nice with that software turned OFF
but probbably i have a serious problem – I thing it is problem with RAM beyond any quick fix – Am I right ? Screens below. Does anyone else has these kind of errors every 5 minutes?
Laptop is unusable 🙁 Probbably I will have to test geekbuyings return policies

test hardware with a USB Live Linux distroSeptember 17, 2017 at 2:17 pm #72255
I bought the EZbook 3 Pro for an upcoming trip – both version 3 and 3L.
Both are basically flawed but for the price I’m amazed they accomplished what they did. The screen on the 3L seems faded to me. And the trackpad whilst a big improvement to the Pro 3 still compares unfavorably to my Acer Chromebook 14 (not a premium laptop after all).
The 3 feels like a brick compared to the 3L and the 3L is bigger. I am wondering if the 3L is using a metalized plastic?
Last night my 3L got extremely hot on the upper left corner – so I rebooted and it cooled down. I suspect some background process went haywire. Also made me suspect a metalized plastic – heat not being dissipated. A brief search on the web didn’t yield any definitive results on how to differentiate between metalized plastic and metal.
The ‘A’ key is problematic on my unit. If you press the upper part of the key it doesn’t register. Need to press in the center
The WiFi reception is mediocre in both the Pro 3 and the Pro 3L.
Leaning toward taking the 3L on my extended trip. The Pro 3 trackpad is just so bad…September 17, 2017 at 3:56 pm #72262
Hi bruce, do you mean that the 3l’s build material is sufficiently different enough from the 3 pro that you actually can believe that it might be ‘metalized’ plastic.September 17, 2017 at 4:47 pm #72267

No, under close inspection the metal finish on the Pro 3 and the Pro 3L look exactly the same. I live in the mountains and it gets cold at night so I left my three laptops out and the temperature to the touch seemed the same as well. But it is amazing how much more svelte the 3L feels when picking it upSeptember 17, 2017 at 7:41 pm #72274Miroslav ĎuricaParticipant

Quality has to differ peace to peace.
On my 3L there is strong wifi – I am quite far fom router and signal is OK.
But after double check with live distro – the RAM is really faulty one. If Geekbuying did not accept my claim do you thing there is possibility to buy another RAM? I am no moder but it looks that it is impossible 🙁
