“good prices”

Written on: 03/07/2015

went with PC specialist as from what I read they were very good at computer builds. The timescale is not the best , remember its working days that count , not weekends. mine took 3 weeks to build , not too long but its always the same when your waiting for something , it seems to take longer. not sure the website builder is 100% working correctly as I managed to get really fast ram added to my build even though my motherboard does not support it. hopefully with a bios update in the future it… Read Full Review

“Good value desktop PC”

Written on: 03/07/2015 by kitejim (1 review written)

After looking around for a new desktop PC from the usual online suppliers, came across PC Specialist. Checked them out online, reviews were generally good so gave them a try. Website is very easy to use, lots of options for different specs and detailed descriptions so you know what you are buying. Lead time is quite long, but you get exactly what you want and price compared very well with other sources. Updates on progress were good and frequent, well packed and delivered safely. Easy setup… Read Full Review

“Fantastic customer service ”

Written on: 03/07/2015 by Walshwx291 (1 review written)

From start to finish I was kept well informed which was great. I felt like I was kept in the loop and knew what was happening always. Cannot fault the service. Pc came in great condition and safely arrived in good time. Only minor negative was the delay in response to email request but they did hey back to me after a couple of days. All in all a great company to buy from!… Read Full Review

“Good service, be careful with NVIDEA promotions.”

Written on: 02/07/2015 by Ffinlo (1 review written)

As a whole, the service was very well arranged, with a nice breakdown of expected times for each section. Delivery could have offered a pre arranged delivery date, but ultimately the timing was fine for delivery. The preliminary help was also great, with online assistance able to me at a moments notice. Packaging was also great, no signs of damage at all, very satisfied with it. Personalised set up notes would have been nice, but the existing information was good so no real complaints… Read Full Review

“Already passed your site address on”

Written on: 02/07/2015 by Penny10 (1 review written)

Excellent service, easy configuration. The only area I would improve is the matching of video cards to screens available (i.e. filter screens with connector type). I rang to check my config with a human - who was very helpful and suggested I change the SSD make. I would also suggest a 'power rating' on the configuration, so that you can see if the PC you've designed lies in the bracket you wanted (e.g. CAD) and then suggestions such as - if you increase the memory speed the power factor will go… Read Full Review

“Great Product but Unexpectedly slow Delivery”

Written on: 02/07/2015

The quality of the PC is great. Setup was very easy and as described in the instructions. Only downside is that the delivery took substantially more than what I was expecting based on the information published in the website. In the end I had to ask for a fast track shipping and still received my PC, 6-7 days later than the average posted in the website. … Read Full Review

“Painless”

Takes away all the strain of purchasing a new PC. So easy to tailor your choices to get exactly what you want without being pressured by annoying salesmen! Great service and delivery ahead of schedule. Couldn't ask for better… Read Full Review

“Custom PC”

Written on: 02/07/2015 by duHolbrook396 (1 review written)

Third PC bought from PC Specialist and this was also dispatched late. The estimated delivery times are not accurate even though they vary on a daily basis, if you double the estimate it is closer to reality. However, that is the only negative. They offer a fantastic range from which to build your PC and I have never had an issue with quality. The first one I bought 8 years ago is still running as a spare machine. The website checks your configuration to make sure that everything is… Read Full Review

“High Powered Monster that makes MS look quick!”

Written on: 01/07/2015 by prCarr112 (1 review written)

Hi, I'm going to start with the only negative points first. The system to customise your computer wasn't quite as smart as I'd hoped. It took me a while to figure out how to get the system I wanted. But I won't dwell on that because it was the only negative point. The components were tremendously good value and cheaper than if you tried to by them yourself so it almost negates the fact that they build it for you. I paid to upgrade the service for faster delivery (5 working days) and they… Read Full Review

“Gaming PC Build”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by dementiapending71 (1 review written)

At last! I was able to celebrate passing 71 with some serious kit (for me). An ASUS Z97-Pro Gamer motherboard, SSD's, a GTX 970 GPU, etc, etc. The PCSpecialist 'Build your Own' site was excellent, the site indicating what you could have in the build and, importantly, what you couldn't. The order tracking software was probably the best I've seen. and information feed back exemplary. The PC arrived within 16 days - well packed, but with some internal connections needing pressing home. When… Read Full Review

“Mini PC review”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by Tomebuzz (1 review written)

Service was pretty good but it took AGES from first order to delivery. Like 2 months I think. I know there a stock part missing but even after it came in there were further unexplained delays. The machine arrived and is working very nicely but there was also a piece of a mini hdmi cable jammed stuck into the mini hdmi port. We had to pry it out with a pliers before we could plug a new cable in. The customer service agents I dealt with were very good in fairness and but overall a few minor… Read Full Review

“PC's built to a high standard”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by CaptinFlack (1 review written)

Great service and good online ordering information. All emails were answered promptly any concerns were dealt with. Four stars because 5 star perfection is impossible to achieve. Very happy with our new Core i7. Selecting an SSD drive means it boots up quickly. Spending the extra money on the highest speed D-Ram also helps prevent any speed bottlenecks with data interchange. Didn't overspend on the graphics card 2GB Nvidia good enough. The result is a quiet cool PC which has no problem with… Read Full Review

“UltraNote 15.6 Laptop”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by Daisybee87 (1 review written)

The laptop arrived just over two weeks ago, so I have had some time now to get to know it and set it up. It's a sleek machine not the lightest weight wise, but stylish, suits my tastes. I am very impressed with its speed, as I don't consider mine a high spec machine. It boots quickly and handles my research work with ease. Screen resolution is good to. Well impressesed… Read Full Review

“did what they said”

Written on: 30/06/2015

Ordered a standard laptop with a few tweaks. Ordering was easy - although so much choice it took me time to decide - maybe could ahve given more tips on choosing. My PC arrived - exactly as expected. All works fine so far. No complaints. I think cheaper than high street for equivalent PC and you get exactly what you want. Would fefiantely use them again… Read Full Review
