1. Site overview
Welcome to my 5Homework review! If that’s the first time you hear about this site, you will soon know why this is so. This is yet another custom writing service claiming to be the most flexible and convenient one. I know better than to trust such claims, but I was still wondering, “Is 5Homework legit?”
It is said that it’s been active since 2008, but I checked the Web Archive, and the earliest snapshot is dated 2016. Google search also showed no mentions of 5Homework before this year.
Despite this fishy detail, I decided not to call 5Homework scam just yet. After all, it could be quite a decent writing service, trying to fake its long story and popularity to be noticed among its multiple competitors.
2. Customer support
There is, uh, a so-called online chat on every page. What it actually is is a simple form for you to leave a message. I can’t say their agent was prompt getting back to me with an answer, but I did get the answers I needed. There is also a callback option, but I didn’t use it.
3. My experience
The site does not have anything unique in terms of its design. It’s rather neat and very generic, but at least it’s easy to navigate and does not feel incomplete. So, I hoped I could trust this company with the review of the book I didn’t bother to read.
4. Order form
I had no trouble finding or filling the order form, it’s quite the same as anywhere else. All the classic stuff: academic level, type of paper, subject, topic, paper format, additional materials and instructions, and so on.
The second step is price calculation, where you can select the category of a writer, deadline, and any additional services, and the final step is providing your personal information and payment details.
This part was very convenient, as it takes only a couple of minutes to complete, and you can go back and forth between the three tabs if you decide to change anything.
5. Discounts and pricing
There are a prices table and a price calculator, so at least you can get that important piece of information right away and without contacting anyone. There are a lot of combinations, but the lowest price for a 1-page high-school level essay written in 14 days is $10, and a dissertation chapter page with the same deadline will cost $29. All in all, I found the prices quite affordable, although shorter deadlines can cost up to twice as much.
There is a 5% discount code for the first order. So, I paid 38 bucks for my 2-page book review instead of 40. Not that impressive.
Alright, this service may be affordable, but is 5Homework safe? Well, they do offer free revisions within 10 days from receiving the paper. I had trouble getting those though.
7. Final quality
I received my book review a few days before the deadline, so that’s good. Unfortunately, the paper itself wasn’t. It didn’t seem like it was read after being written, there were typos, and I had problems with the structure.
8. Writer’s proficiency
I asked for a revision, but the fixed version didn’t satisfy me either. I decided there was no point in asking the same writer to revise it again, so I contacted the support to get it done by someone else.
The agent said he would check who’s available, after which I didn’t hear from him for a day and decided to do it myself as I was running out of time.
There’s no information about the writers, except that there are supposedly almost 500 of them and they are all highly educated and great at what they do.
9. People talking
Is 5Homework reliable? Not to me, no. I decided not to use it again. And I didn’t trust 5 Homework reviews on their website, so I wanted to see what other people think about it.
5Homework rating on TrustPilot is Excellent, 5 out of 5 stars. With only two reviews, both left in 2019… Yeah, a bit better than on SiteJabber, where it has zero feedback.
I guess it’s not as well-known as they want us to think.
5Homework Reddit search also brought no results. And the few reviews that I did manage to discover rated the site very poorly, complaining about a late delivery, plagiarism, papers filled with mistakes, and being ignored when trying to resolve those issues.
I guess that’s it then.
10. Loyalty program
No loyalty program to speak of if you still for some reason want to give 5Homework a try.
