“Prompt Delivery, amazing laptop”

Written on: 02/07/2016 by alexrobinson101 (1 review written)

I purchased the laptop on finance ( octane 2). Took 3 days to build and got the laptop on the 5th day. I wasn't sure what parts to put in the laptop so I gave them a few calls, they were very helpful, knew what they were on about. Its nice to go to one website to get everything you need, very user friendly interface on the website, it reminds you that certain graphics cards need certain charges etc which is great. Great service, recommended. … Read Full Review

“Excellent service and products”

Written on: 01/07/2016 by Aleahb81 (1 review written)

We ordered two laptops from PC Specialist and requested a fast turnaround in the order sheet. PC Specialist's customer service was very helpful all the way and we enjoyed having the ability to track the progress of the order from the moment we placed it online. The laptops were delivered in 3 and 5 working days respectively - as promised - by the DPD man who appears to be allocated to our area (very friendly and polite, by the way, a credit to the company). They came well packed, with a couple… Read Full Review

“Bloody good show ”

Written on: 01/07/2016 by Markbrandlovestitties (1 review written)

Creating my pc and buying it took me a while with so many options to go for. But once I finally decided what to go for there service was brilliant. Great online help and good delivery. I can't fault the company. The only thing I will say tho is that they use dpd, the box that arrived at my house was batterd and had holes in it and as I'm sure pc specialist didn't send it like this it must be down to dpd not giving a .... As per normal. My contents were OK but there packaging was… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/06/2016 by AlexandraBlair (1 review written)

Very helpful on initial enquiry; dispatch of tablet was quick and easy to follow with DPD tracking option. Hope the 'Tablet' lives up to its recommendation in the 'ComputerActive' magazine. Also, I have two computers made by PCspecialist, a Windows XP and a Windows 7 that are still running and doing well !!… Read Full Review

“Very happy with my Octane”

Written on: 26/06/2016 by Calzoncillo (1 review written)

PC Specialist sent the laptop in time into a perfect package and they were very kind and cost effective. They are also worried about the customer security by following an strict protocol when you decide to pay by credit card. I also like that they call to check that everything is ok and ask you for your opinion. The laptop is configured just as I needed at better price than standards models. I will recommend PC Specialist to my friends because it is also very simple to understand what they… Read Full Review

“Why the delay in shipping?”

Written on: 26/06/2016 by ssssphsssss (1 review written)

The ordering and customisation process was good and the PC seems to work fine-(I haven't checked the inventory of what I've actually ordered yet). I could watch the order progress all the way to "awaiting dispatch" which happened on a Friday morning. And it stayed in that state for 3 working days. So I called up. There was some vague excuse of "oh somebody didn't..." But after that it was shipped promptly in a massive box which I'm encourage to keep. I won't. So generally very good but the… Read Full Review

“Just as Ordered and On Time.”

Written on: 23/06/2016 by Peter3622 (1 review written)

After some initial research I decided to opt for a custom built desktop PC. All the usual names seemed to be offering older processor chips or insufficient graphics cards. For the same price or less I could build a PC with a better spec and more upgradability. Not being that confident of building the system myself I found PC Specialist. I did price up all the individual components on component websites and the difference was minimal to get them and build it myself or have PCS to build it… Read Full Review

“Custom made PC”

Written on: 20/06/2016 by 311Wren (1 review written)

A great service from these guys. Easy to read drop down menu options to customise your computer . It was built and delivered within a week and that was just standard delivery option, not even on rush! I liked being able to see what stage of the build my PC was at, very reassuring to see its progress. Good delivery too, decent courier who delivered when they said they would with plenty of text updates etc. Highly recommended!… Read Full Review

“Excellent gaming PC ”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by RobSpencer1976 (1 review written)

Ordered quite a high spec PC with 5 day dispatch time as I'm impatient and wanted it quickly. Ordered an overclocked I7 but after a phone call from PC Specialist couldn't have overclocked as not good air flow (I'm limited with size of case due to where it has to go). Arrived on 5th working day and eagerly unpacked and got fired up. After updating all the drivers (the ones they install aren't always the latest) got it running very well. Overall I'm very happy but one niggling point is that when… Read Full Review

“Good purchase but with few problems.”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by denil (1 review written)

I recieved my computer quite fast which was a big plus because I needed it for work. Unfortunately I was bit disappointed after switching it on and setting up basic windows settings. I installed a software which I use for photography and the pc started to freeze and was quite slow. With my friend's help we realised that the drivers are not installed which can cause the problems. I would expect it to be done by you before sending the pc to me. Other issue I noticed is that I had problem to plug… Read Full Review

“First on my list for prebuilt computers in UK”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by romasnordman (1 review written)

I've been buying computers from PCspecialist for 3 years now, I'm pretty demanding as far as high system specifications, both laptops and pc towers - small and big. They usually have everything on offer - the top, latest high and low end hardware, I simply have no alternatives, unmatched by customization and I hope they keep improving they will stay unbeat, PCspecialist are the best! Things to improve: More hardware alternatives, like additional motherboard brands, different video card brands… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist Customised Laptop”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by Dunlapya246 (1 review written)

The part I was initially most worried about when ordering my laptop from this website was the price. However, it was not as bad as it could've been. I received multiple emails to update me on the status of my laptop which was very reassuring. I ordered the laptop with a Samsung SSD but I was informed a few days after I placed my order that this was part was unavailable. The staff managed to find a replacement part quickly with as much power (if not more) as the Samsung SSD at no extra cost… Read Full Review

“Great knowledge and service offered by staff.”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by Reginaldo478 (1 review written)

I ordered two NVidia Shield K1 tablets for birthday presents and the staff talked me through how they differed to normal tablets, the pros and cons and also told me when they were due to be back in stock. I then placed the order and the tablets arrived the following week. So knowledgeable, friendly staff and a company that delivers on time as promised. What's not to like… Read Full Review

When buying my tablet I sent a few emails back and forth inquiring stock delivery and found the customer service was excellent. Delivery was quick and was with me within days of dispatch. Will definitely buy here again. Parcel came wrapped safely in plenty of bubble wrap and so survived delivery just fine. Very satisfied customer!… Read Full Review
