BestEssays Review by AllTopReviews

BestEssays.com has been around since 1997 and has a presence in the U.S. the U.K. and Australia. What can such a long-running company offer the student of today?

We start with a very busy looking landing page, loads of information crammed and squeezed into a space slightly bigger than an A4 page. It is confusing and difficult to look at and not at all user-friendly. For example, there are six buttons in the middle of the screen which simply seem to change the photograph that appears with some headlines which are of no practical use whatsoever

Products and Service You Will Find

Products and services seem limited on this site. Once you are able to find the right button, the “services” page is quite comprehensive and has some original services like Mind Map and programming on its roster of available tasks. In fact, the whole “Online Media Projects” section here is unusual as an offering and very interesting and different. BestEssays reviews note that the services are varied and that some seem unique - webinars, and simulation reports anyone?

Customer services are available on toll-free phone numbers, (strangely, only for the U.S. though) email, and a 24/7 chat line.

The Real proof - Writer experience and Quality of Products

There are 26 sample essays on the BestEssays.com website. All of these are in the form of PDF files which can be downloaded and used as patterns or examples if you are thinking of going it alone. All are well written and of a good quality of writing and composition.

Best Essays devote a whole section to their writers which explain in detail how many they have for each area of study and their vetting and qualification procedures. They emphasise the writers pedigrees and even have accurate biographies for several of their top writers which include statistics like the feedback percentages of positives and negatives and how many students chose to use a particular author.

Now the money - Prices, Discounts, Payment Methods

Different review sites mention their clever and unique way of differentiating the “quality” of their papers. This takes the form of standard, premium and platinum services and account for differences like being notified by SMS about the progress of the work, a superior support service, top ten writer guarantee and a proofreading which is of a higher standard than the normal service.

With regard to BestEssays prices they actually state that they are not the cheapest and that they pay their writers more for better quality work.

To give you an idea of the pricing we asked for a 10 page paper on an arts subject, to be completed in ten days, and the price was $193.20, £210.80  and £237.10 respectively for the standard, premium and platinum services. These are undoubtedly at the higher end of the scale by industry standards.

BestEssays.com discounts are 5% for 1-51 pages, 10% for 51-100 pages and 15% for101 or more pages. There is a $20 saving with service's coupon code. The site says that other discounts are available by leaving an email address. We could find no references to Best Essays promo codes.

Payment can be by any of the major credit cards, wire transfer but, oddly, not PayPal. The site has secure protection by Authorize.net and Security Metrics, and student information is secure with access via passwords and usernames.

The Good, the Bad, the Beautiful, the Ugly

Testimonials of this service speak highly of the company's long pedigree and track record, and this is undeniably a service provider that has been around a long time.

There are some great features - the very slick and comprehensive live statistic section, for example - but we found the site to be over complicated with a terrible layout and lots of superfluous “fluff.”

BestEssays.com boasts of its superior product, but this is only if you pay top dollar - by their own admission unless you go for their, "all-singing, all-dancing," platinum product you only get second rate proofreading, for instance.

We would want excellent proofreading across the board at these prices, so, unless you won the lottery last week, we’d think carefully about using Best Essays for our papers.

Previously, I've had a positive experience with bestessays.com ordering several papers from them. I could not be anything but greatful. However, couple of last essays were a flop. The quality was less than usual and the deadline was missed by couple of hours. They ignore me when I ask for revisions and they've left me no choice. I can't but drop the service and try to search for new one.

I ordered a research paper from BestEssays and it needed revision. When I asked for it, the managers ignored me and no matter how many times I wrote them I couldn’t get a revision. When I order a paper I expect it to be done well and it bothers me that in the end I must do everything on my own. It was delivered on time, but the overall quality and the support disappointed me.

The service itself is quite expensive. The quality of the order that you receive does not really worth the amount you spend. The positive side is that they accept urgent orders and can help with them. Yet, the result isn`t great.... In case you just need a paper of any quality - welcome to their resource, enjoy the "perfect" writing.

I wonder why is not it possible to provide me, as a customer, a direct contact with the assigned writer. Moreover, I hate that most of the time the support department phone line isn`t available to be reached. Last time I spend about 20 minutes waiting on the line... It affected my opinion about them as professionals not in a good way. Postponed deadline.... even a few hours delay is not professional and isn`t okay! The average price doesn`t give many chances on successful existence to this custom writing.

The support team is highly unprofessional. And the quality of papers could have been better. I’m sure there are better services on the web for this price.

I don't have passion for writing and was looking for writers who have it! Writers of this company are not experts of the academic writing!

My paper was three hours late. That's not what you expect from a "professional" writing service.
