Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review Of The Jumper EZBook 3 Plus

Our video today covers the full review of the Jumper EZBook 3 Plus. This is a fairly decent notebook but does have one major flaw and that is the TN display, (click here for more info on display types).

However if you are just looking for processing power and RAM and an easily upgradeable storage solution, then this might be what you are looking for.

The short list of specs are as follows:

  • Intel Core M3 7Y30  processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 128 GB SSD (Upgrade M2 slot on bottom of notebook)
  • WiFi b/g/n/ac dual band
  • microSD slot
  • 2 full size USB 3 .0 ports
  • 1920 x 1080 display, 14 inch

Overall this is a decent notebook for productivity or school. It certainly isn’t a gaming notebook, but it can do real work.

So let us get to the video from Chris over at TechTablets and see what he has to say.

This notebook is available for about $429 at this link.

That is all for now,

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Chuwi SurBook 12.3 Inch 2 In 1 Tablet PC

Today’s video covers the full review of the Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 Windows Tablet PC. It comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets. This device sports a 2736 x 1824 screen resolution which is the same as a Surface Book. This is an IGZO display.

Also included we have either 128 GB or 64 GB of onboard eMMC storage, an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU, 6 GB of RAM and 2 Full Size USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C 3.1 port.

There is also a microSD card slot in the mix and an optional back-lit keyboard and a stylus. This is a pretty decent device although it has a hefty price tag but is obviously far less expensive than a Microsoft Surface Book.

This one isn’t on my list because of the storage limitations. I would have preferred to see an SSD slot on this device so upgrading storage would be easily available.

So all that being said, let us proceed to the video!

This device is currently available at Banggood for $429.99.

That is all for now,

Tim

I Learned Some Stuff Today Using The OpenShot Video Editor!

Of course if you listen to the folks whose videos I share, they always tell you you can’t use this device or that for video editing…wrong!

As usual I beg to differ! My little Zotac Ci323 with an N3150 processor actually helped me edit a video that I sort of needed some additions to.

Let us keep in mind we are of course not talking super duper videos, but I still wanted to add some info to the video that I was posting for work.

That of course  involved playing about a bit and learning how to add some text to the video in Openshot at appropriate screw up/left out info points.

It turns out that 30 minutes of education via clicking the wrong shit the first time taught me a lot! Point is never give up, simply click and do…and if that doesn’t work, try again…and again.

So to get to the tech details, the video below was edited on a PC, in Openshot, with 8 GB ram…but…yeah, I run a server off of this device and it uses up 5.3 GB so we are talking using a mere 2.7 GB RAM!

The edits took less that 5 minutes to process even with the minimal ram available. You can imagine how fast this would be of you were not insane and running a web server on your PC at the same time!

Hopefully when I get the notebook I am searching for with an N3450 processor things will be even faster! But never believe that you need some sort of $800+ PC to do editing of videos!

Below is the video or if you clicked on the post image you might have already seen it!

Incidentally, you can buy this car from us for a mere $15,900 which is about 10 grand less than a new one, but considering the fact this one has only 354 miles, you might be an idiot if you looked elsewhere!

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Essential Phone PH-1 Unboxing And Review

Today’s video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the Essential Phone (PH-1). A 5.7 inch, bezel-less smartphone built of premium quality materials with a few nice features.

Unfortunately one of those nice features is not the price tag which is a staggering $699 for a not quite ready for prime time device. However this phone might appeal to a certain segment that wants very decent battery life, good gaming, plenty of storage and a good display.

On a personal note here, I know that a bezel-less display sounds great, but in reality it just means you will be accidentally touching the screen all the time. My BLU Energy 2 phone has some mighty tiny side bezels and I am still constantly hitting the screen with the edge of a finger or thumb.

Keep in mind of course that I use a phone primarily to check email, watch the radar and occasionally go to my work web site when I am on the landline with a customer.  Oh yes, I also use it primarily for…wait for it…yes, you guessed it, making phone calls. So obviously I am not the guy who is going to recommend that anyone purchase a phone that costs what a very good laptop costs.

All that being said, let us see what Andrew has to say about this particular device.

That is all I have at the moment,

Tim
