“Great hardware, delivery awful”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by RoryMoran260 (1 review written)

Great pc, really robust and I think it will last me for years, like my last custom built pc. Only downside was getting it delivered, being expected to pay for Free Delivery due to where I lived - so check your postcode before and decided if you want to pay if you don't live in a favoured area before you spend time designing your computer. This is supposed to be because of the courier - who route packages through this delivery-charge area to get to one that gets free delivery. And that delivery… Read Full Review

“High Price but good quality”

Written on: 11/12/2014 by MRMARKRH (1 review written)

This is my first purchase from PC Specialist, I found the website easy to navigate, but my only quibble was the delivery on the information on the delivery schedule part of the website does not match the time given on the order tracking page, which currently states 96.13% or orders are delivered with in 21 days while 98.7% are delivered with 28 days. Maybe the long time for delivery was because I did a lot of customisation and not just the standard off the shelf model. Customer service, well… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist Review”

Written on: 11/12/2014 by Ballyros (1 review written)

I like the service provided, PC Specialist Built my pc for me giving me full customibility. I like how fast the website is at telling you if two parts dont go togehter. The only problems i had were wait time for the pc to come, 20 days and I was not aware of the packaging on the inside. When I first turned the pc on it crashed over not much use because of overheating due to the fans not being able to move properly and no room for airflow, I would have liked to have been told about the inside… Read Full Review

“High Spec Laptops”

Written on: 11/12/2014 by CJWatts (1 review written)

We required 2 high end laptops with plenty of get up and go, storage space and reliability. Having previously had desktop computers from PC Specialist that exceeded expectations I decided to look to see what was available. We now have two excellent machines that will enable us to serve our clients better and negate the need to take desktop computers and all manner of peripherals on the road. The ordering process was simple, even though the various combinations were almost endless. We were… Read Full Review

“Excellent experience all round.”

Written on: 09/12/2014

From online configuration, sales query answered, order placement, notifications about order and delivery progress this was a very professional service. Online configuration was very easy to use. Progress updates during build and delivery kept me informed. For a built to order, custom configured PC, I feel it was comparable in cost to off the shelf versions. Very happy with the whole process and the PC that I've had delivered… Read Full Review

“A great way to buy a PC”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by GingerGringo (1 review written)

I bought this gaming pc for my son who was quite specific on what components he wanted, he had sourced a gaming pc himself which he wanted from a number of suppliers, but when I looked at the PC Specialist web site i was astounded at how easy it was to design your own pc depending on your requirements from a basic browse the web one to a full on gaming pc one. Using my sons spec I managed to select the required options and eventually built a better spec gaming pc with higher quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2014 by AleahJones169 (1 review written)

This is the first time I have used PC specialist, and was very impressed with the service, very easy to use website and very helpfull staff. I customised a PC but once I spoke to a member of staff they advised me on the best components and saved me a lot of money. Very quick an easy to order online or over the phone. And they even beat the estimated delivery time an received my order in 5 days . Very happy with my new PC and would recommend to any one… Read Full Review

“New Desktop”

Written on: 08/12/2014

I liked receiving emails during each stage of the process for my computer, as it helped me know exactly what was being done to it when and I could appreciate the process. The delivery time was also great, arriving a mere 10 minutes into the hour-long time amount I was given as an estimate. I did not find that the manual had enough information concerning set up for people with a lack for experience, but I did figure out how to make it work quite easily (I was just very nervous in case I did… Read Full Review

“Two custom business desktops + 1 nvidia shield.”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by Sarf (1 review written)

I ordered two custom desktops from pc-specialist recently and couldn't be happier! my client needed raw performance at low price and the only way to achieve this was with a custom build. The web site directed me through the component selection process with a very nice touch at the end, It told me if the components I had selected were compatible or not! I also ordered a 32gb nvidia shield tablet and my only gripe here was the fact that the unit wasn't in stock when I ordered it and this wasn't… Read Full Review

“First class service superb product great price”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by DanHich (1 review written)

After a lot of searching and researching I choose PCs specialist to build a pc for my son. After speaking to various companies who seemed to just tell me what I wanted to hear not go Into specifics I phoned pc specialist to run through the specification this was when I knew they were the right company to buy from. The guy I spoke to told me the pro and cons of all the parts we had chosen we then changed some things and I am delighted with the end result. It is nice to get a product that is… Read Full Review

PCspecialist is 'the' example of how to provide excellence in computer purchase. Superb website, full of advice, easy to use, and very comprehensive. I have just purchased a desktop, which was constructed and delivered in just over week - with updates every day - amazing ! The delivery was fast and efficient and key points communicated clearly with facility to respond. Set up of the computer, was hassle free, with a neat guide provided in the packaging ... I have nothing but admiration - my… Read Full Review

“Great Communication on status of order”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by Jackie126 (1 review written)

Easy to use website made ordering easy. I was then keep updated on where my order was and when it would be delivered. Slight problem in that the txt to say it was on its way arrived after the laptop did. The laptop was well packed and easy to set up . This laptop was a gift and replaced Windows 98. Windows 8 was not an option for the user so had windows 7. I could not get this from the usual outlets. The laptop is light and has a good battery life and a 17.3 ins screen. All round sucess… Read Full Review

“amazing tech”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by AydinCastro253 (1 review written)

The time it took from order to dispatch was slightly long due to it only being worked on on working days, but other than that I am really impressed and pleased with my product. everything is working perfectly, although the battery life is a little short, but its not much of an issue for me. I also like the four fans, it keeps the laptop from getting blisteringly hot. the 4k screen is definitely worth it, even if some pop up boxes appear really tiny. In general I am very happy with my order, and… Read Full Review

“Great service”

Written on: 07/12/2014 by bokeustermans (1 review written)

Recently my computer had been dying, mostly the hard drives were failing and the GFX card couldn't handle it too well anymore. Eventually I had the money to upgrade and decided to go with PC specialist as the prices were great and it seemed like a very good company. I was not wrong. I paid for 5 day dispatch and it was sent in 4, even afterwards when I had a few minor issues I was on my way very quickly. Sending electronics through the post is my worst nightmare, but they package their stuff… Read Full Review

“Good Performance”

Written on: 06/12/2014 by louisken (1 review written)

The laptop is sleek with a nice general design, the upgraded memory and fast dual core processor gives it a speedy response to input. In terms of gaming, I would recommend this laptop as an entry level, or perhaps for people less interested in the latest games, although it would give them a good level of performance. The only downside I can see really would be the battery life, I can manage about an hour on 100% which is disappointing, especially considering that I'm not really doing anything… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Great Service”

Pc Specialist did a fantastic job with my order, not only did they deliver on time for my nephews birthday but did it with supreme professionalism. I highly recommend their custom Pc service as it is quick and easy to use even if you're are not a computer whizz - a handy description of things may be useful. OPnce I had ordered they did not hesitate in informing me of Pc status every step of the way - from initialisation to check ups, to configurations to finally despatched. Overall a great… Read Full Review

“Amazing service”

Written on: 05/12/2014 by MetalMurray (1 review written)

Having bought computers from brands a few times, I wanted to take a different approach and get a laptop that I know will last me very well so I found PC Specialist and got myself the laptop build that I desired which high street shops and brands failed to perfectly provide me with. While the wait for the laptop was a few weeks, it's understandable due to building it from scratch but one thing for sure is that the wait was definitely worth it. For recommending the site to others, I'm positive I… Read Full Review
