    "Limited "free" checking"

    December 5, 2013  |   By remendez

    Version: Desktop Plagiarism Checker 1.11

    Pros

    What was checked was well referenced.

    Cons

    The number of characters you can enter at one time is limited (i.e. you can't submit your entire paper to be checked). I ended up submitting one page at a time and then was only able to run the first 3 pages of my paper before I was told I had exceeded my usage and would have to return in 24 hours.

    Summary

    Since most papers that will care about plagiarism are greater than 3 pages, this is quite an obstacle. My paper is due tomorrow! I can't wait 24 hours to run a check on the next part of my paper. This is very inconvenient.

    "Looks cool on the tin"

    April 22, 2013  |   By simplest2remember

    Version: Desktop Plagiarism Checker 1.11

    Pros

    none for me because can't use it. it also didn't work at work (behind a proxy)

    Cons

    unless you know what you're doing (i.e. have used it before), then don't expect and free scans. You need to sign up first. Or wait 24 hours. But if you need it within 24 hours you can sign up. But if you do you're told to wait up to 12 hours for - some kind of processing. Waste of time for me.

    Summary

    meh.
