Pros4.5 hour timer, so you can wait to do this and/or take breaks in between each task.
You're tasked with playing a few games about real estate that test your cognitive skills. You become a real estate agent for a company, and you aim to guess the best price for real estate, then make the best recommendation for a client.
The requester knows that this study will take a while, and provides a timer in the corner, with accurate progress counters on the bottom of the screen. Whether that is motivating or not depends on how you look at it.
There are a LOT of bonuses available if you can complete all the parts and do well on them. Each part of the study gives $5, so if you complete all parts, you'll get $5 + $10 in completion bonuses alone. You'll also get performance bonuses that can make this somewhat okay.
The bonuses were paid within 12 hours of doing the HIT, and it was approved within the same timeframe as well.
ConsThe study is always going to be forced fullscreen, and considering how long the tasks will take, you will want some form of entertainment going on in the background. Make sure that entertainment will last, because the requester warns you that if you exit fullscreen at any point, the study will end prematurely.
There are three parts to this study, but you can only do them all if you perform well on the study:
The first part has you determine how much a house would cost to rent for a month. You're given 500! images to go through in 10 blocks of 50, with a slider for every single image. This part gets tedious real fast, real quick, and the images take a while to load in, so you're going to spend quite a long time on this. This took me 34 minutes.
The second part has you determine which house out of 3 your client would like based on ratings and price. Don't overthink it, as you only need to think about the ratings and price, not the house itself. There are 530! trials where you have to rank three houses in 10 blocks of 53. For every 30 trials you get right after 175 correct, you get $1 as a bonus, which comes out to a rate of 3.33 cents per correct trial, so it is worth it to take your time here. There are really short timers on each page, and it can be extremely annoying as it can inhibit your ability to input when you forget about the timer, which results in mistakes occurring that affect your bonus. This took me 55 minutes, and I got ~330 trials correct, so my expected bonus is around $5.
The third part is exactly the same as the second part, as you get another 530 trials in 10 blocks of 53, except the pay rate is now increased to 20 correct trials for $1, or 5 cents per trial after 175. You're expected to do better here, and the bonus will be more worth this grind. This took me 56 minutes because I started to wear out, and I got ~450 trials correct, so my expected bonus is around $14.
The exact bonuses weren't disclosed, with only the completion bonus ($10) being given out. This isn't too much of a big deal, but it can still be a bit annoying to not know your exact bonus from this long and tedious HIT.
In conclusion, this HIT is only worth it if you're confident in keeping focus all the time and not getting distracted by anything. I wouldn't exactly recommend doing this, but if doing mentally intensive tasks for hours is your favorite, then go for it.

ProsPays fairly, though pretty intense work. Approved same day with bonus.
ConsEDIT: Bonus was only 13.06, making the hourly 8.50/ hr. I tentatively rate this as fair because this task was like taking an intense test for 2 hours (would be shorter if you don't do part 3 for less $, but hourly probably same, maybe worse since round 3 went faster than round 2 for me), so I really think the pay should be $10-12/ hr. Plus, I was so exhausted afterwards, I had to take a nap, which probably cost me more money.
Messaged the requester, cause I was expecting a $17 bonus (4$ show up + 6.5 round 2 + 6.5ish round 3) or $21 bonus (if $4 show up fee was for round 2 and one for round 3 also). I actually think it was supposed to be the 2nd way, but the requester may have changed how the points equate to dollars in each round without updating the instructions? Instructions said 35 points per round equals 1$ and I think I was around 220 for round 2 and probably 240 for round 3 (let us know points after every round, but not the last round, so am ball parking).
The reason I think he changed how the points equate to dollars is because the message I got with the bonus was "$8 + bonus: 5.06". So, this makes it sound like I did get $4 for each round (show up fees) and the points based bonus was only 5.06?? Someone else who reviewed this said they thought their bonus would be higher, so I am a bit disappointed. Especially, since this morning actually had some other good jobs I missed to do this.
EDIT again: Actually, based on the title too, the show up fee for each round IS $4 if $32 is possible for doing both rounds: $4 base + $4 show up round 2 + $4 show up round 3 + $10 possible round 2 points + $10 possible round 3 points: $32.
*However, according to the requester, the bonus is only paid out on points that are over 175, and apparently that means I averaged 260 points a round. Really only remember doing 8 rounds for rounds 2 and 3. And also thought the instructions said 35 points equal a dollar, but that would only be paid if 175 was reached, not after the first 175.
*****Anyone who does this in the future, can you verify that rounds 2 and 3 go the full ten rounds? And, more importantly, can you verify that the instructions do in fact say that the bonus is only paid out for points over 175??? This is the really important part as I find it hard to believe that I read this wrong when I know I reread it multiple times ***** It makes sense mathematically, but it's really hard for me to believe that I only got 25% of the possible bonus on each round. As I told the requester, I've never failed a test in my life, until now lol.
Whether I read the instructions right or wrong, this is kind of a shady way to do the bonus, since if 530 points were possible per round, and I averaged 263.5 points per round, then if 53 points equated a dollar instead of 35, but the first 175 counted, then my bonus would have been 4.97 per round, instead of 2.53 per round. I guess we live and learn.
Good luck to anyone who does this and please post the info I asked for in your future reviews if possible. Thanks.

ProsNot clear how the bonus is calculated, but it shouldn't be difficult to obtain the full bonus.
Supposedly will be invited to another task of approximately the same length and pay tomorrow. I'm not sure that's a "pro".
** EDIT ** The second experiment popped up and I reluctantly accepted it... but ended up getting plagued by technical errors throughout and didn't finish. I took screenshots and e-mailed the requester. I got an apologetic response after a few hours that they could not let me retake the second experiment due to their study parameters but they added a few dollars to my bonus for my trouble. I was kind of relieved not to have to go through the process again, anyway.
Cons"Game" here is defined loosely, and is definitely more akin to self-torture. Do yourself a favor and load up an audiobook or movie to help keep you awake. It is LONG, REPETITIVE, and BORING. It requires full screen, so if you've got a second monitor, load up your queue so you can keep track of much time you've spent to facilitate your self-loathing.
There are four sections, each with several rounds and a one minute break in-between sections. No progress bar. Feels like it goes on forever (and at almost an hour, it pretty much does.) If you have kids, pets, or neighbors- now is the time for them to get sick, break something, or come over to say hello. Just expect it.
Even with the full bonus, it only comes out to ~$11/hour.
