“17.3" Optimus V Laptop - Best Laptop I Have Ever...”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by woofkakashi (1 review written)

I decided to post a review after a couple of months of using my PC Specialist Laptop so I could get used to using it and test out the features. This was my first purchase from PCS and after careful online research and reading reviews on other websites. I chose them because of their high reliability, low prices and top quality parts. It took me a while to customise my laptop and I went through many chassis models to get the right spec I wanted. I did spend more than I intended, but it was… Read Full Review

“Returning satisfied customer”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Flagor (1 review written)

I recently bought two laptops from PC Specialist. I already have two desktop computers from them; one is now seven years old and still performing well. All of these devices were custom built to my own specifications and I have been given exactly what I asked for. Unusually, one of the laptops had a faulty dvd unit. However, this was rectified in just a few days an the laptop is now working just fine. Not sure when I'll buy again but, when I am considering it, I will make PC Specialist my… Read Full Review

“Good communication, great choice”

Written on: 22/07/2014

Pros: - being able to specify all the parts I wanted (and exclude the ones I didn't) was simple using the websites laptop configuration tool. - regular and clear updates throughout my order to inform me what stage it was at and when I could expect it to be delivered were appreciated. Cons: - received a disc of Windows 8 drivers despite specifying in my order that I would install my own copy of Windows 7. However, logging into their website I was able to download all the correct drivers for my… Read Full Review

“Second Time with PC Specialist”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Kurli (1 review written)

The fact I'm back for a second time should indicate I'm happy with the way PC Specialist operates. It's not perfect but it does go the extra mile in sorting things out if things do go slightly awry. This time the TV card failed on test and it took quite a long time to source alternative supply. I would expect a TV card, which is offered as a standard option, to have a slightly larger stock and a much shorter lead time if supply is suddenly needed. The reasons were well explained on phoning to… Read Full Review

“Exceptional, Fast, Good Value”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by daryl.goode (1 review written)

I stumbled across PC Specialist after looking at building my own PC. I thought their options and diversity were fantastic. I then found similar websites and it actually worked out cheaper to use PC Specialist, for BETTER quality goods too!! Highly recommended - their lead time is great also considering the amount of turnaround they get!! I have had no problems as of yet and I do not anticipate any problems occuring! Top Quality Supplier!… Read Full Review

“PC Five Star”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by jem37 (1 review written)

I have been a user of P C Specialist for a number of years, having bought several other computer from them. There web site is good and the way they can interact is also excellent. The timescale of a build is good and the delivery on time within their timescale. Overall an excellent firm to deal with and so far with all my computers from them, no problems.

“new machine is awesome”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by MaleahHopper (1 review written)

Great easy to use interface when selecting components, and the information pages on what each component does was helpful. Perhaps a new page with a list of explained acronyms would be hmm nice, although I may have just missed it... Build time was pretty good, though the explanations were slightly confusing. What's the difference between pre-production and building? Their descriptions seemed interestingly similar. Regardless, my notebook took 10 days from order to receiving it. Very pleased… Read Full Review

“Good website and quick support.”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by Habhome (1 review written)

I spent a lot of time configuring my laptop with their online tool. I made several versions and compared with commercially available "standard" laptops of the same price I've reached. At one time I had some questions regarding some conflicting information on their website and their customer support quickly responded and sorted it out. My biggest issue was that my payment failed twice in such a way that the money was reserved on my account, but never actually delivered to them, since my card… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by RyleighRooney (1 review written)

Whilst building the PC I had accidentilly selected a power supply that was too powerful and was unecessary and pcspecialist notified me of this warning me about overspending. I was also very surprised at the speed of the build and testing as i received an email letting me know it had entered the testing process and how long it should roughly take, then to my surprised I received another email the following day telling me that it was ready to be dispatched. I was kept fully up to date with the… Read Full Review

“Best laptops currently on the market”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by THJ113 (1 review written)

The reason that I orders from PC specialist is two fold, I wanted a laptop that had SSD and a laptop that ran Windos 7 (as 8 is teribble), this ment that I had, and wanted, to get a custom PC. After looking around PC specialist seemed to offer the best choice and be the cheepist so I ordered from them. This is the second of two very similar laptops that I have orders this year and both where bilt and despatch was in reasonable time. I would highly reccomend that any one looking for a new… Read Full Review

“Amazing Value & Service”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by Clintboon (1 review written)

I have been looking for a new computer for a while and immediately knew this is where I'd be getting it from. The components are top quality, the prices are absolute value for money and the service is quick yet thorough. I have had no issues at all with PC Specialist, they build great machines quickly to a very high standard. Their post sales support is also a huge boon to the business so you can always be assured assistance whenever you need it… Read Full Review

“My new laptop”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by andyjgarner (1 review written)

My new laptop from PC Specialist was built and delivered well within the time period promised and it has worked perfectly. It is well constructed and a pleasure to use. And that is despite my being a complete lummox and dropping it out of my rucksack onto the hotel room floor (thinly carpeted concrete) as I swung it onto my back. I thought that would be the end of it. The screen would be surely cracked, the case would be wrecked and surely there was no way it would work again. But no! A small… Read Full Review

“Good service”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by BadassRogue (1 review written)

Placing an order is very simple, some a wide variety of options to help you customise the system of your dreams. easy to change order once placed. Production of the computer took a little over the average production time (10 working days). However I was compensated with next day delivery and the overall time to receiving the computer, since placing the order took 2 weeks and 1 day. I wished to purchase individual parts as well as the system I had customised, However I could not find the… Read Full Review

“New machine is great”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by DavidTrenchman (1 review written)

Received me new notebook on time and in great shape. The website's UI is easy to use, and the help pages on what individual components do were very helpful. There's a compatibility tracker too - so if you pick two things that don't fit, you'll be told. From ordering to receiving, it took ~10 days, though some of the stage descriptions seemed oddly similar - still can't figure out what the actual difference between 'pre-production' and 'processing' is… Read Full Review
