“New -fast!- multi-purpose PC”

Written on: 21/05/2016

From order to completion in less than 10 days was great, and I was kept informed of progress at each stage by a courtesy email. No issue with the components (and lets be honest, it was not a complex build with multiple raid arrays or multiple GPU's) so far, but the software implementation was a little lacking I felt. An example of this was the installation of a Samsung SSD. PC Specialist did the bare minimum and plugged in the drive, relying on Win. 10 to take care of business. They did not… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service, and brilliant product”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by RyanB25 (1 review written)

After hunting for a laptop that was customisable, I decided to use PS Specialist. The online customisation form was really simple to use, and the ability to see the price change as I added individual items was useful. Once I placed the order, they kept me up to date with each stage of the building process via email, and I could log in to my account to see the remaining stages my laptop had to go through. They also have a live tracker which shows the current average lead time. Once my laptop… Read Full Review

“Usual top service ”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by haznick (1 review written)

Bought myself a 17 inch laptop after having used these guys before for a desktop PC. The selection process was the usual easy job. Plenty of choice for laptops with all sorts of different spec levels. It took 8 days (including weekend) from ordered to taking delivery. Excellent build quality and packaged very well. The partitions I requested were all done for me, and even had a trial copy of Windows to boot into until I installed mine. Overall very happy with the experience. Would… Read Full Review

“Couldn't ask for more”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by liambromley (1 review written)

The website is easy to use and notifys you if a part isn't compatible, the building and shipping was quick and only took five working days for free delivery and the finance option is great as you can pay it off within the first 12 months and the interest is knocked off and replaced with a £29 early settlement fee so overall it is a great service and I'll definitely be using it again… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and advice”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by 488Hutchinson (1 review written)

I was about to buy a ready-made PC from a high street retailer when I found the PC Specialist website. I was intrigued by the opportunity to select exactly the components I required, and I appreciated the fact that it was also much more economical to custom-build! Choosing all the components from the extensive lists on the website was a bit time-consuming as I'm not an expert and I don't fully appreciate which components are fully compatible with others. In fact, as the machine was being… Read Full Review

“the ultimate journey”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by Exsperto (1 review written)

Buying a PC from pcspecialist is like going on a journey, from the day you order it to the day it gets despatched there isn't a moment where it doesn't feel like you're being tested, and when that huge box appeared at our door by the DPD sages I knew that this mighty adventure came to an end. In all seriousness the computer is good a prong on the processor bent a little bit trying to remove the foam packaging but it still works fine, thank you for making a good PC for me, kudos… Read Full Review

“Custom built PC”

Written on: 19/05/2016 by Gisselleu261 (1 review written)

The PC runs smoothly and quietly, which is necessary as I am not disturbing other members of my family whilst using. It can pretty much handle anything I throw at it. I use it for Web design and can easily run all the functions it demands quickly and efficiently. The graphics card is mid range and can easily process games in Mid to high quality (which is fine for me) can easily play less demanding games on Ultra graphics, as well as online MMORPG's The case itself has all the relevant USB… Read Full Review

“Great experience, great laptop”

Written on: 19/05/2016 by JonahCooper (1 review written)

This site was recommended by my daughter's boyfriend, who works in IT. He was spot on. I have got a great laptop, with a spec the big chains couldn't match for the price, and it came within eight days. I wanted an SSD hard drive and this was by miles the best deal I found. I liked that I could tweak other small details, though in fact the basic specs are pretty good anyway. I was kept informed on the progress of my order. Also, though I hadn't considered this when buying, when the laptop… Read Full Review

Overall I was extremely happy with the whole process, the PC Specialist website is easy to use, and gave plenty of information on the progress of my order, The quality of the PC is fantastic, all components are neatly and firmly placed, and its performance so far has been mindblowing!! I particularly liked the welcome pack that comes with the order, which contains all component manuals plus a handy overall pc manual that has some useful information even for a PC veteran like myself… Read Full Review

“much better than others”

Written on: 19/05/2016 by mrvolkoff (1 review written)

Excellent service. Delivery on time. PC was packaged very well and love "pcspecialist" logo on case. Maybe it was my bad english knowledge but I was thinking that case will be fitted with fans in all available places but instead it had only fan on the back and empty slots on front and bottom. other than that excellent work. Used OC before, but now will be using pcspecialist only and recommend to all my friends. Thanks guys… Read Full Review

“Better than my MacBook Pro that it replaced”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by sianalexandria (1 review written)

Unfortunately, it didn't get off to a great start. My laptop was sent to the billing address rather than the delivery address, which are at opposite ends of the country. When I called to sort it out, I was left waiting for 30 minutes before I could speak to anyone. There was more of a mix up when the FAO that I included in the delivery address was left off, it was all a bit confusing, but I got my laptop in the end and only 3 days late. I bought this laptop to replace my MacBook Pro. I wasn't… Read Full Review

“14" Defiance Custom Gaming Laptop”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by KarateJesus (1 review written)

Overall I am very happy with the product and service I have received. The price is very competitive for a customised laptop of the spec although you could save a few pounds by buying and fitting certain parts yourself (i.e. HDD's, RAM) as the price through their website for components is not necessarily the cheapest around. The timescale from ordering to receiving the laptop was just over two weeks for me, which is satisfactory but not the best. They offer faster build, dispatch and delivery… Read Full Review
