"Does not work and offers no support"

September 03, 2009  |  By ngberger

 |  Version: Viper Plagiarism Scanner 1.2.03

Pros

promises much BUT

Cons

does not deliver!
The software fails to work, does not connect to server (which actively bolcks connection).
The scanmyessay.com website has no contact address no proper details about them; the contact form is buggy and does not work.

Summary

Is this software a scam?

Updated on Sep 20, 2009

It was not the firewall, but thanks anyway for your kind offer to help. I was stuck on the local search. Couldn't see how to manoeuvre around it.

Eventually I managed and got a result. Need to evaluate a couple of essays to see how good it is, and will report back soon.

"Good product but has the potential to be even better..."

June 11, 2009  |  By OliverUK

 |  Version: Viper Plagiarism Scanner 1.2.03

Pros

Really like the side-by-side comparison to potential plagiarism. Seems really accurate. Let me scan essays from 2000 words to my dissertation (15000) with no problem.

Cons

had a problem logging in....but seems fine now... lacks a few options and the user interface is a little dated...

Summary

Really good free product but a few minor tweaks could make it great...

"promising on first use"

May 13, 2009  |  By billthompsonster

 |  Version: Viper Plagiarism Scanner 1.2.03

Pros

potentially it seems like I can check on specific extracts from essays visually assessed for plagiarism

Cons

as with other software solutions to this problem the full assessment using the software is time consuming compared to the actual benefit

Summary

potentially it is a deterrent to plagiarism and an assist for writing essays although most of the work of assessing plagiarism is bound to fall on the lecturers is it not?

"Does what it says on the tin - and then some!"

May 11, 2009  |  By CurlyCarly

 |  Version: Viper Plagiarism Scanner 1.2.03

Pros

I was able to scan all my essays using Viper to check for plagiarism - I've been using it for ages now and welcomed the newest update!

Cons

Pre-update it was a little slow, and quite buggy. It now runs on my Mac which is good, and I've had no problems since upgrading.

Summary

Bottom line: It's a free scanner that lets you submit all your essays and check for plagiarism - it's good because it's free, (especially compared to Turnitin which isn't free.) it still could be improved if they made the scans a bit faster!

Pros

- Scan your work against other work on your computer and on the internet
- Easy to add your essays to be scanned
- and free

Cons

- It requires a username and password but it does only take seconds to register
- wish it could give me tips on preventing plagiarism when it shows the report.

Summary

I scanned my work against my other essays on my computer as well as the internet and I was quite suprised how much I had plagiarised by accident 37% :S but overall a great little piece of software.
