“New Optimus V Laptop”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by Davion111 (1 review written)

Very happy with the laptop supplied by PC specialist - build quality seems good. Only downsides to the order was the length of time taken to build it and ship it, though within the quoted lead-time. Also the website is not clear that you can order the laptop with a MSata drive only option which is great if you have a spare drive or two you can add to the chassis. The only way to do this is by calling them and getting the sales staff to change the order (not a big issue as such but only… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist Laptop Review”

Written on: 29/07/2014

When I first customised the laptop everything was very clearly laid out from product specifications to delivery times and so on, this meant there was no confusion at all down the line. PC Specialist keep you very up to date with your order from processing your payment to building and testing, it seems they are very thorough with their testing ensuring that the product is as good as it can be before dispatching it to you. The laptop was extremely well packaged and was delivered to me unscathed… Read Full Review

From start of ordering to delivery was very good. I was kept up to date every step of the way. Delivery time was exactly as on my text. The web page was very easy to use and laptop was made to our own specification. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Great for First Time Users”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by 74eyes (1 review written)

Really quick production time (only 10, working, days between me ordering my pc and when I got it). I had ordered the computer before making a pc specialist account and once I did make an account (using the same email) the information of my order was transferred to the new account. I was personally grateful for the notification as to how my order was coming along and how it updated on their website as and when my computer moved from each production stage. As this was my first time using this… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service - So far So good!!!”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Steven_A_G (2 reviews written)

Prior to purchasing from PC Specialist I had done a LOT of research before deciding where to buy a new laptop. I was completely disillusioned with the usual high street and online retailers where you are forced down the Windows 8 route - which I am certainly not ready for. I need a PC for enterprise level applications and development. Windows 7 was definitely my preferred option for now. After a lot of research I finally stumbled across PC Specialist. After some initial trepidation I was… Read Full Review

“great company ”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Mattbarker (1 review written)

i would highly recommend them to any one who is looking to get a custom built PC.They built my gaming PC, i am very impressed with the performance and the build quality was perfect. all drivers where installed and windows was pre-loaded so the PC was up to date so this meant i could get straight onto playing my games :). The pc took around two weeks to be delivered which i was happy with and i was informed with all stages during the build. The PC was not damaged in transit and the pc came early… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, and quality products.”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by markh5682 (1 review written)

I was in the market for a new PC, at first I looked at the pre-built off the shelf models, but to get the spec I wanted meant going well over budget and pay for stuff I didn't need, so I came to PC specialist where I could build a system to my own spec and budget without having to pay more for unneeded extras, designing my own system on the PC specialist website was quite fun, and where something was incompatible or put me over budget, it was easy to go back and change it. In the end I went… Read Full Review

“Great Laptop”

Written on: 28/07/2014

I wanted a Laptop with certain specific criteria which I found it hard to find in any off the shelf offerings. Having looked at the PCSpecialist range I found EXACTLY what I wanted when allowed to configure the options on the website. The customer service was great and they didn't have any trouble amending my order. When it arrived the Laptop had a very good build quality. I would buy again from PCSpecialist… Read Full Review

“Fast Customisable PCs and Whatnot”

Written on: 27/07/2014

Great website, easy to use, with a wide range of laptops and desktops. Ordered a £776 laptop on a Sunday and it was built, tested and delivered by Friday. Was always kept up to date from the moment I placed my order to delivery. Well packaged for safe delivery. Excellent laptop that runs very smoothly. No downsides, excellent returns policy; would definitely recommend… Read Full Review

“New laptop”

Written on: 27/07/2014 by nicklinpaul (1 review written)

I enjoyed configuring my new laptop but was relying on my own knowledge rather than getting any help from PC specialist. Sometimes I was wondering if it was worth paying for something extra or whether it was a waste of money. The time scale was very good from ordering to delivery. I'm now struggling with get my laptop up and running but I suspect that is because it is windows… Read Full Review

“They are called PC Specialists and they live up to the...”

Written on: 27/07/2014 by Redeye17 (1 review written)

Since I planned on spending a lot of money on a laptop, I knew I needed to find one that fit my needs (I am doing a Degree in Computer Science) which was well-built to boot. I looked at a number of different laptops but often found them lacking for the price until I came along the offerings from PC Specialist. The ability to customise them was to my liking and it allowed me to save some money by removing the need for a pre-installed operating system (which you can get a lot cheaply as a… Read Full Review

“Good service overall”

Written on: 26/07/2014

I ordered my laptop after looking through all the possible options and in the end I am very happy with the result. It was delivered when I expected it and everything was in order. The laptop is very quick to boot up and so far I've only experienced one problem: the touchpad wasn't configured properly. None of the multi gestures for windows 8 seemed to work, I could only move the mouse pointer and click. After googling how to fix the problem I found a post on the PC Specialist forums telling me… Read Full Review

“Good overall - A couple of minor issues”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by IsisHalsey404 (1 review written)

All in all, I am more than satisfied with my experience. When I rang up to discuss my requirements, I found the member of staff very helpful and the advice informative. I also liked the website where I could track and indeed amend my order (which I did). There were however a few minor problems. Firstly, there seems to be a bug with the website authentication. After doing a password reset, I tried to change the password to something more memorable on the user account page but it did not seem to… Read Full Review
