“5 stars all round”

Written on: 20/10/2014 by Reynfall (1 review written)

Bought a custom build gaming laptop. very user friendly and informative web site, provided lots of information on which components were better and their prices. Delivery was super super quick, expected it to take around 2 weeks to do everything but it was built, tested and configured in 3 days and delivered on the next. No problems so far, everything's amazing, all hardware working to top specification and I honestly couldnt be happier. No complaints about any part of the service, trustworthy… Read Full Review

“15.6" Vortex IV”

Written on: 20/10/2014 by 1983Allen (1 review written)

Buying on PCspecialist is an amazing experience. You have total control of your order, choosing the best components and tracking every step of the construction. It took less than a week for it to arrive and the unboxing didn't disappoint. Although it is not made of aluminum, the structure is very good and seems durable. For the price I paid I couldn't have bought a better machine. The backlit keyboard is awesome, and the configuration that I chose will last for years running games at maximum… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, great communication.”

Written on: 20/10/2014 by Roise (1 review written)

This was the first time I have used pcspecialist but it won't be the last. It took a little longer to receive my product but that was because I picked my own components so it was to be expected. The communication was excellent and I was kept informed of exactly which stage of production my laptop was at and when it was ready for delivery. I haven't had it long but I am very pleased wih the laptop so far and if the support is as good as the initial service I will be using pcspecialist for a… Read Full Review

“Good quality and reasonably priced”

Written on: 20/10/2014

Ordered a laptop and got it within 3 weeks, which is not to bad for laptops apparently. Arrived within 48 hours of dispatch as promised and was well packed so no problems with shipping. Got what I paid for really, which is much better than what I see on the high street prebuilt models (usually the processor suffers for those prices). Only complaint was that I requested windows 7 drivers but I received win8 ones instead, was quite frustrating sourcing all the different drivers that weren't… Read Full Review

I was really satisfied that paying for faster build made a huge difference. Only 3 working days! The support is great. Even when they didnt install a sound card driver they helped me solve the problem… Read Full Review

For a computer of such high quality I am so happy at the price, time taken to deliver was more on the long awkward side but I would be happy to wait longer as the computer is so good! A friend recommended this site to me and I will recommend it to all my friends!… Read Full Review

“Outstanding service, excellent product”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by Greenpengirl (1 review written)

This is my second purchase from PC Specialist. I originally bought my desktop from them a few years ago. My experience of that purchase was excellent and I therefore didn't hesitate to return when I needed a laptop. On this occasion the customer service totally exceeded my expectations. Expectations which were already high I might add. I had difficulty in making the purchase on-line... Entirely my fault for mucking up my credit card details. I called and spoke with a very helpful guy who not… Read Full Review

“Great Product”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by Dillan465 (1 review written)

PC Specialist was recommended by a friend so I checked them out, very easy to use website in which I could custom build my laptop with everything one could want to put something like this together. Its well built and it can more than cope with everything so far that I have thrown at it which are the latest games running and at the same time i am normally surfing the net which my last PC could not really handle. I live in Europe and had no issue's with the delivery of this product and was kept… Read Full Review

“Great PC, a little on the large side”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by AubreeGilbert (1 review written)

The PC arrived very quickly, was well packaged and took minutes to set up. I was very happy with the speed and look of the machine. I think my only hesitations were over the size of the case (it's large!) and the fact that Office wasn't pre-installed - I had to set this up myself with the included disk. These weren't really problems but points I'd note for future reference. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and would use and recommend the company in the future… Read Full Review

“great laptops but beware of misleading timescales”

Written on: 18/10/2014 by Ellen.mai (1 review written)

The freedom allowed to choose your own parts is fantastic, the laptop is brilliant, I love it. It arrived fantastically well packaged and the courier service the use is great, you can even track the van as its on the way to you. The only negative to my experience I would say was the misleading timescales given and the lack of email updates timescale quoted was 7-9 working days but it took 17 which was a bit of a problem as it was bought for my partner to use at university and was late. I… Read Full Review

“Quality takes time ”

Written on: 18/10/2014 by Mueller430 (1 review written)

Very good quality of laptop runs smoothly and no problems! Completely worth the wait, the value for money is one of the best! Only downside is that you do have to wait a while for it to come but if you are willing like me it's great in the end result because you get an excellent quality and there is no risk of damage from delivery as it is packaged to the most careful standard (if that concerns you)! Will definitely get my next from here!… Read Full Review

“Took a long time but everything working in perfect order”

Written on: 17/10/2014 by Goodwin84 (1 review written)

Negatives: The delivery took significantly longer than estimated and I was not notified of any delays until I tried to get in touch with them. Positives: Once I did get in touch, staff responded relatively quickly and courteously. The laptop arrived in perfect condition and works like a dream. Amazing value for money. … Read Full Review

I have bought bespoke laptops from PC Specialist for several years and I have always been 100% satisfied with the quality of the products and the service. In particular, I like the option of being able to choose exactly what I want 'under the bonnet'. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending PC Specialist… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2014 by hodre (1 review written)

Awesome build for an amazing price. i7 processor, 1Tb hybrid drive and 16Gb RAM in a 17" laptop for just over £700 - who could argue with that? Why go elsewhere, so long as you're not in a huge hurry!… Read Full Review

“Good overall service. ”

Written on: 16/10/2014 by Jadeng1983 (1 review written)

Very user friendly when building your laptop with a wide range of options to add at the build stage. The build process once ordered took some time. You have to be a very patient as it took nearly 3 weeks for me to receive my laptop. If you need a laptop quickly, you may have to use another company and pay the extra. Very pleased with the end product and all at a very reasonable price. Pros: excellent value, good options at build stage. Cons: took a little too long to build and send out… Read Full Review
