General Impression

To tell you the truth, this website looked shady right from the first impression. There is a lot of text featured on the homepage and most of it doesn’t make any sense. Well, the guarantees are fine and the company makes you believe that you’ll receive a custom-tailored paper right on time.

Let me tell you right from the start: the writers are not experts on the topics they cover, so the results are not as great as expected.

Services provided

I needed a movie review on Tarkovsky’s masterpiece Andrei Rublev. This was a tough project for me, since the movie was associated to a religion and culture I didn’t understand, but it still made an incredible impression that I wanted to present to my professor. The order form enabled me to clarify what I needed. Most other academic projects are provided by this team as well.

Prices

The prices are not as affordable as I expected. There are seven levels of quality (ranging from High School to PhD), and the prices range from $17.55 to $45.85 per page. Note that the shortest deadline is 8-23 hours, which doesn’t come anywhere near to the 3-hour deadline other services offer.

I chose the College Junior level with a deadline of 5-6 days and got the essay for $29.90 per page.

Discounts and free features

This website doesn’t feature any discount codes. I found the company’s Twitter profile, but the feed hasn’t been updated since 2013. So, no discount as a first-time user. I contacted the support to ask for the company’s policies and the representative told me that I’ll get beneficial price reductions as a returning customer.

The free features I got were a title page, reference page, and outline. The company mentions a free plagiarism scan as a free feature, but I didn’t get any report although some parts of my paper were definitely plagiarized!

Ordering process

The ordering process is not explained at the website, but I assumed it was similar to what I have dealt with before. The order placement went easy, but the difference was that I got a writer who wasn’t experienced in writing movie reviews and had no knowledge on Tarkovsky’s work. I had to ask for revisions two times before I gave up on the entire thing and contacted my credit card company to get myself a refund.

Deadline

The deadlines at this website are really strange. The longest option is 15+ days, so I doubt that your projects would be ready on time if you went for it. I chose the deadline of 5-6 days and got the first version of my paper 7 days after placing the order. I asked for two revisions and the entire process took 10 days without leaving me satisfied.

The work I got

Let me tell you one thing: you cannot write an evaluation essay on Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev if you don’t have a basic understanding of Orthodox frescoes, medieval Russian art and Tarkovsky’s cinematography. I did some background research because I was interested in this director’s work, but the writer didn’t bother that much. He had no idea what the movie was about and only paraphrased some reviews from IMDB. The revised versions were not even close to what I was looking for, so I had to order my movie review from another service.
