“Good, but not great”

Written on: 11/10/2014 by will.henderson.14 (1 review written)

I did write a much more detailed review, but the review website deleted it when I clicked "save". Second time round it crashed when I tried to sign in, which largely sums up my experience with PC Specialist, i.e. needs to be a lot better. I would say that they are entirely mediocre, the level of communication received was never great, though I never felt deliberately lied to/ignored. My biggest issues were the lack of pricing information on the website (you select your components, and get an… Read Full Review

It found the home network asked me for my password and that was it. Online and ready to go, simple… Read Full Review

“Great machine. Well built to the agreed specification.”

Written on: 10/10/2014 by 48Sheridan (1 review written)

I found the company using Google Search. The initial call to the sales team was second to none. I don't remember the chaps name but he couldn't have been any more helpful. He listened to what I wanted, made recommendations, even told me where he thought I would be wasting my money which was refreshing to hear. And I understand the team are not on commission which really reassured me that I was getting sound advice. I'm sorry but I felt the delivery time was really slow. I hadn't asked for… Read Full Review

I bought a custom built laptop,specs: Vortex Series: 17.3" , i7-4810MQ ,16GB RAM, GTX 870M I choose to buy online since the same specs laptop I bought was 500 euro more from my country.

“Very quick delivery, very good computer”

Written on: 10/10/2014 by Franklina236 (1 review written)

I bought a custom built laptop, mainly due to my other laptop breaking. I ordered it on a Thursday with the hope it would arrive within 2 weeks, but it actually came the following Wednesday! The laptop itself is an absolute beast. Its fast, slick, and handles anything I throw at it. I'm very pleased with this buy… Read Full Review

“New gaming laptop”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by CGGameStudios (1 review written)

Ordered a new gaming laptop. The website is very easy to use and clearly shows all of the options available. Couldn't find anywhere cheaper for the same spec and service. Would of liked delivery to be a little sooner but I appreciate the commitment to ensuring that your order is fully functioning and tested before dispatch. Very happy with the service, liked the fact that you can review your order online to see what stage it is in the production. Only down side was the fee for using a credit… Read Full Review

“Customised laptop at a good price”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by phil.gallagher.754 (1 review written)

I stumbled across PC specialist when looking for a very specific laptop spec at a reasonable price. All of the regular brands seem to hike the price unreasonably for a dedicated GPU and screen resolution above 1366x768. With PC specialist I was able to customise a laptop to remove unwanted extras, such as CD drive and OS, and upgrade other parts like HDD to ssd Abd still keep the price at an acceptable level. I finally settled on a 14" skyfire iv, with various options/customisations. The… Read Full Review

“nVidia SHIELD 32gb gets 5 stars, but PC Specialist...”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by douggreenwood (1 review written)

I'm very happy with my recently received SHIELD tablet - it's everything I'd hoped and been lead to beleive it would be after researching the tablet upon release of the initial review models. There's really no faulting the device as aa Android tablet, and it's gaming features are excellent, far above what one would expect for a device in its price range. So all good on the product itself. As to the service... I preordered the tablet a few days ahead of it's original release date, which was… Read Full Review

“Well built and fast PC”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by ocGill305 (1 review written)

Bought a skyfire IV and it works very well. Certainly worth the SSD drive due to booting speed being much faster with it. Only got an i3 but it is proving very capable and does all that I need it to. Certainly the right sized laptop and am pleased with this product. Only issue is delivery takes a while… Read Full Review

“Great but Slow”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by rkAtkinson203 (1 review written)

Building and ordering the computer online was a very easy a simple process, and once ordered I was informed of its progress every step of the way. Only problem was that it took a long time to arrive, almost a month and they forgot to tell me I wouldn't be able to run any installation disks seeing as I didn't get a disk drive however that was partly my mistake… Read Full Review

“Quality and Service”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by Devinent397 (1 review written)

The website is excellent, the staff very knowledgeable,friendly and very helpful, and the computers are built to your requirements. Delivery was delayed at my request, due to holidays, and arrived exactly on time. All of the computers are on record, and possible upgrades can be checked for suitability and ordered on line. As the website states - the prices are very keen. Keep it up, I shall come to you again… Read Full Review

“Best online computer shop”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by Emilym221 (1 review written)

PC Specialist I think is best computer online shop which I found. I ordered my computer and I am very happy about service. The computer is nice looking, comfortable, delivery was quick. I very like how my computer looks. Everything is perfect, how I wanted-color, size, weigh, keyboard. I started to use my computer immediately the same day and I did not need to do something special that to turn on it. It was easy to do. I liked that company send me every time massages how my order proceed. It… Read Full Review

“do not bother!”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by Hungr3Cat (1 review written)

I ordered a laptop and after waiting a painful 28 days for it to be delivered, found that it did not work..no display/noise of any kind. after endless time on hold/unanswered e-mails i finally get through to a guy who suggests i take the thing apart with a screwdriver! For £600 I would have hoped they could have at least put the thing together properly in the first place. Informed him that i am tired of waiting and just want to return the item for a full refund. He tells me that if i want to… Read Full Review
