“great user friendly website”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by GaryLaw (1 review written)

I know very little about the inner workings of a computer but was easily able to 'build' my own laptop.what I really like is that you don't have to have any automatic security on it and you can still have windows7.I would highly recommend pc specialists to anyone, far better than going to a shop. Easy website and great customer service.thank you to all involved… Read Full Review

“14" SkyFire IV laptop”

Written on: 24/05/2015 by TonyFisher (1 review written)

I ordered a 14" SkyFire IV laptop on the 9th May with regular delivery (estimated 7-9 days). It actually came just 6 days later on the 15th so I was very pleased with the construction time. I was kept informed throughout and was even given an hour time slot for the delivery. The laptop came in a simple though well protected box. In fact everything about it including what was in the box and what was loaded onto the computer was simple. Non of the usual junk you either throw away or have to… Read Full Review

“Why PCSpecialist?”

Written on: 24/05/2015 by KarenWhalen98 (1 review written)

If you want people to tell you the truth without any flimflam then these are the guys you should head for. I have found their service impeccable. They are invariably courteous and in the frenetic world of IT this is rare especially when people like me asked really stupid questions. They built a computer for me for film editing which is a Queen amongst boxes' quiet and powerful. In short their gear works… Read Full Review

“Self build by professionals - Hassle free computer build”

Written on: 23/05/2015

Good web site giving me options as if a self build and then at the end confirms if all compatible. Takes away the pain of wrong bit with wrong byte (?). Seems my choice was good - Spoke to Sales - most helpful - Paid for quick delivery and PCS beat the deadline by 2 days. Extremely well packed but may have problem keeping it all if required under warranty! Also well presented with English (!) instruction book, Disks, leads. I liked the speed of delivery, the professional packaging of all items… Read Full Review

“SkyFire: 14" Matte HD+ LED Widescreen (1600x900)”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by irishbadger (1 review written)

I ordered a SkyFire: 14" Matte HD+ LED Widescreen (1600x900), with an i7 processor, 2 gb GTX 850m and 8gb of RAM. I could not be happier with the laptop. Runs smoothly and does not make a sound. All games run fantastic and smooth on ultra graphics setting. Building the laptop was very easy, if you're not familiar with computers there is help along the way that explains each component and what it does. After putting in the order i was kept updated on the status of the laptop which i found… Read Full Review

“Took a while but...”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by MarkBa (1 review written)

My new computer took a while to arrive after I ordered it (12 working days), so over a fortnight but when it arrived it was worth the wait. On the positive side the specification I got for my money was pretty exceptional (see below): Case: CORSAIR GRAPHITE SERIES™ 780T FULL TOWER CASE Processor: Intel® Core™i7 Six Core Processor i7-5820K (3.3GHz) 15MB Cache Motherboard: ASUS® X99-S: ATX, HSW-E CPU, USB 3.0, SATA 6 GB/s RAM: 32GB KINGSTON HYPER-X PREDATOR QUAD-DDR4 3000MHz X.M.P(4 x… Read Full Review

“Overall a Happy customer”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by Hagan495 (1 review written)

Very pleased with the end product as it was exactly what I requested and more. The ordering process was a bit long however I was sent an email every time the status of the order was updated. Delivery was a good experience as I was able to easily reschedule the delivery and track where the driver was precisely. Overall a very happy customer… Read Full Review

“Thanks for excellent service”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by Martinezie127 (1 review written)

I've recently bought a computer from PC Specialist. It was good to be able to choose the precise specification even though I needed help for some of the aspects of the spec. (Can't remember details) Luckily a knowledgeable friend could help, but when I had to phone PC Specialist for help on setting up the computer after delivery, they were really helpful and the issue was sorted immediately. This was all about plugging the monitor into the graphics card rather than the motherboard. The computer… Read Full Review

“Its all good.”

Written on: 23/05/2015

PC is great, just a shame that it took so long to go through the building and testing process. Staff were ok at doing their job. I mean, I'm grateful to PC Specialist, they have done an amazing job preparing this pc, I just wish it could of taken less time to prepare. But I suppose it's quality over quantity. Thanks… Read Full Review

“Used to be amazing, now suffer with unreasonable delays”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by Marioe169 (1 review written)

Used PCS over 17 times now and the first 14 times they were excellent (aside from a couple of issues with wrong power cable and not plugging the power button into the motherboard) - however, more recently they have gone drastically down hill. A few orders ago they took over 18 business days to deliver, as a result they promised to add a note to my account allowing all future orders to be fast tracked (apparently). Both my recent 2 orders were not fast tracked and prompted me to contact them… Read Full Review

This is the first proper gaming computer i have ever had and it hit every expectation that i had. I did ALOT of research before buying. what i liked about pc specailst was the online support, Anything you needed to know about a product or your order they would tell you. pc specalist was the cheapest around, like i said i did alot of research, alot of places were alot more expensive for the same build. The machine runs like a dream and everything had its drivers already installed. I did have one… Read Full Review

“overall user experience”

Written on: 22/05/2015 by nemanja (1 review written)

I used PC specialist website to make a workstation configuration for research purposes. I liked the user interface and the organization of the website, which facilitates the choosing process and filters out automatically the unnecessary configurations/components. After, the components are selected by group from most important (CPU, RAM..) to the peripherals, and there is a pretty wide choice of components. It takes around two weeks to deliver the configurations from when purchased, due to the… Read Full Review

This was my third purchase from PC Specialist. The process was smooth and I felt that I knew what is happening all the time. Delivery happened when promised so big plus there as well. No hick ups and surprises....What could be useful in future perhaps is comparison to similar builds and suggestions with explanation why this could be a good build… Read Full Review

“Excellent Communication”

PC Specialist kept me up to date every step of the way. The website was user friendly and the timescales were accurate and up to date. Closer to the dispatch date, I was reliably informed from several e-mails the date and time of arrival. PC itself was exactly as ordered and I have found no problems with it. Overall very happy with this product… Read Full Review

From start to finish we have found PC specialist to be well thought out, easy to use, friendly and very professional. The website/computer choosing is smooth and user friendly. You are kept informed all along the way. The computer was built nicely and came incredibly well packaged! It works very well and we are extremely happy with it - It has been up and running for a week now. We will defiantly buy more from PC specialist and look forward to the whole process. I priced all the parts up… Read Full Review

“Defiance 15.6' 4k”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by Nashq482 (1 review written)

well lets start with the straightforward stuff, Hardware was as advertised and at a competitive price, the build quality of the chassis is a little plasticey and lightweight but that might be a plus for some people. Production and delivery was about as slow as you can cope with 15 working days was right at the tail end of what I'd consider acceptable for an industry like this. However some of the components have really proved to be worth the wait; my macbook pro could often reach 45-55 degrees… Read Full Review
