“Good overall - A couple of minor issues”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by IsisHalsey404 (1 review written)

All in all, I am more than satisfied with my experience. When I rang up to discuss my requirements, I found the member of staff very helpful and the advice informative. I also liked the website where I could track and indeed amend my order (which I did). There were however a few minor problems. Firstly, there seems to be a bug with the website authentication. After doing a password reset, I tried to change the password to something more memorable on the user account page but it did not seem to… Read Full Review

“Fantastic assembly for my laptop.”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by Napier466 (1 review written)

I was amazed when I visited PC SPECIALIST web site and noticed I can select all components for laptop. So I've got all I want. No need to spend time at stores or internet shopping trying to find suitable laptop. Sometimes it just drives you crazy. CPU and GPU are ok - but screen is too small or screen is ok, good CPU but Intel graphics and many other problems. PS SPECIALIST will solve all that. Just select what you like and wait for delivery… Read Full Review

“All Looking Good!”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by 210Kirkland (1 review written)

Recommended by fellow Audio-Visual enthusiasts, this has been a very satisfactory transaction - it was good to be able to specify exactly how the lap-top should be built and configured in order to show A-V sequences at their best, as well as demonstrating and lecturing this medium. Specially requested delivery date was adhered to precisely, and predicted delivery time was accurate to within minutes - most helpful!… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Happychick79 (1 review written)

A few issues over the initial order but communication was very good and it was sorted quickly, item built and dispatched within 10 days and I am very happy with the product. Product built to spec so no overpayment for extras you don't need. Would definitely reccomend and will pass on PC specialist details to others… Read Full Review

“Solid and Reliable Service”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by BJ30 (1 review written)

I have now ordered two computers from PC Specialist - a desktop and a laptop. I ordered the laptop as a result of being so happy and satisfied with the desktop. The online purchase process is very easy to follow: elements can be added and removed without difficulty and a running total follows you around the page so you can keep costs under control. I also found the company cheaper than rivals in the UK. On the occasions when I had to speak to an operator they were most friendly and helpful. I… Read Full Review

“Great service!”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Haywire93 (1 review written)

This is the second computer I've bought from PC specialist and once again I am very happy with the quality and speed of the service I recieved. I will be using again in the future. What I really like about PC Specialist is the abilty to customise the pc you want and that if you need to at some point in the future you can upgrade parts of you computer. I also liked the updates you get as to what stage your computer is in during the build. I will be recommending to friends and family… Read Full Review

“No problem”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by nomblat (1 review written)

This was my third PC from PCSpecialist. You enter your requirements. They give a bit of advice and then tell you the cost. They build it, keep you informed throughout the process and it arrives on time. I can't ask for anything more… Read Full Review

“Great service and support”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by asmanthebell (1 review written)

Great customer service and a good quality build Laptop. The delivery time was spot on and kept me updated all the way through the build phase. The only negative side is that fast build have to be delivered to the billing address which was suitable for me at the time. However by changing the order I was able to refund the fast build process and get the product shipped to my alternative address. The delivery was as advertised and very prompt. The information and hand books were delivered with… Read Full Review

Product: Optimus V, Intel i7-4910MQ, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M, 16GB DDR3 RAM, Samsung 840 EVO SSD. I hadn't known of PC Specialist until my daughter requested a new laptop for a birthday present, and gave me a pretty high speck requirements as a target. She also mentioned that PC Specialist is very popular amongst students in Bristol, and they like the products and the company which offers high specification laptops at very reasonable price.

“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
