“A computer built for me!”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by JaydonRegan118 (1 review written)

My daughter worked out the specifications of the computer that I needed and I was impressed by the way the company kept me informed of it's progress and it's delivery. Which were exactly within the timescale I was given and arrived safely. I am now using it to write this review :-)… Read Full Review

“excellent, kept me informed about everything”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by Katrinae491 (1 review written)

I ordered my laptop on 26th May. It arrived within three weeks. Everything was great. I chose to have linux installed but it arrived with Windows 7 trial version. Given that I wanted to have dual boot of linux and Windows 7, it was actually even better because I did not had to re-install windows and all the drivers. I think the service was excellent… Read Full Review

“My exact spec at a great price”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by Aidan_Sammons (1 review written)

PC Specialist's custom spec service allowed me to design *exactly* the laptop to meet my usage needs so I didn't end up paying over the odds for features I didn't want (like a huge graphics card) as I would have done with an 'off the peg' machine; and I could add things that often don't come as standard and which you have to upgrade yourself (like a faster HDD, a second SSD and loads of memory). I could follow the progress of my order all the way through build and testing on their excellent… Read Full Review

“What I was looking for.”

Written on: 23/06/2014

I couldn't find what I wanted anywhere other than PCSpecialist.com. They provided precisely what I was looking for, with the most informative and intuitive layout I have ever seen on an online pc store. I also got the specifications I wanted at a resaonable price, which I could easily adjust through simple variations in the specifications… Read Full Review

“17" portable gaming monster”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by ash.scrimshaw (1 review written)

In all honesty, I didn't want a laptop. I've built my own PC's for years but unfortunately due to my current circumstances I just do not have the room for a desktop. A friend of mine bought a laptop from PC Specialist a few years back and was over the moon with it so I thought i'd give it a go! I was really impressed with the customising process; from picking your chassis to choosing the internal parts. I did alot of research into the difference in performance between the parts on offers and… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Communication”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by boredwitless (1 review written)

Order details below. Custom building was much the same as you find on Dell or any other site, well laid out, running totals and each component listed with the price it will add onto your order. My order took a long time (around 4 weeks) to go into production, but once it did I received an email from PC Specialist telling me it had moved into production, then another email each step as it moved through the processes. There is an infographic just as you log in that shows you the production… Read Full Review

“My Review of PC Specialist”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by valeriechurchill (1 review written)

Over a period of several years, I have purchased three computers from PC Specialist. I have only just purchased the third one a few days ago and so far, I am very pleased with it. the reason I purchased it is because the first one I bought from them was Windows XP. And although it is still working OK, for obvious reasons, needed to be replaced. In all honesty, I don't see how I could find fault with them when I have gone back to them three times… Read Full Review

Setting up was no problem and I am therefore very happy with the nachine… Read Full Review

“Great!”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by Psyanic (1 review written)

It was very good, I was looking for a gaming laptop and nothing I could find had a good enough graphics cards. Then I found this website and could custom make it with whatever I wanted. After creating it and buying it the laptop came and worked perfectly. It also gave me the option of a gaming mouse and carry case which was very helpful. The only niggle was that there was requirements to some things (for instance I had to upgrade the screen for my graphics card) and this put the price up and it… Read Full Review

“Quality but slow”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by TrentonStuart18 (1 review written)

Ordered sky fire 3 (reviewed model) for my sons 18th birthday, processed quickly on same day but was at pre production stage for 13 days. Prompted for reason for the delay and order process was then completed and dispatched in 4-5 days. No reason given for delay, and suspect it may still be there if I had not contacted. However, my son is really pleased with laptop - great graphics, smooth performance whilst gaming. Copes well with gaming and music and social media - just what any 18 yr old… Read Full Review

“One of the best laptops I've ever bought!”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by ColemanLarkin (1 review written)

At just under £400 (including warranty)it is one of the best 'value for money' items I've ever bought! I admit I am not a Pc-wizard, however, this computer has been easy to get to grips with. It is able to run all of my husband home-business software (which previously took 30 minutes to load the software now everything is ready at a click of a of a button!)In contrast to its excellent performance I have only found one minor problem. Which is when the computer is running 'resource hungry'… Read Full Review

I recently bought my first gaming PC from PC Specialist and have been extremely pleased with it so far. It was processed and built really quickly and was delivered exactly when specified. Although I was really impressed I think an option to buy individual parts would be good. Would highly recommend to a friend!… Read Full Review

“My Experience Buying A Powerful Laptop From PC Specialist”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by StevoG (1 review written)

The range of options when looking to create a laptop on PC Specialist's website is excellent - they're easy to locate, understand and change around. The value is impressive, I went primarily for performance, and that's exactly what I got, at what appears to be the best price possible from a reputable company. The order process was simple, and I was kept up-to-date with the progress of my order. The delivery of it (Optimus Series: 17.3" Matte Full HD LED Widescreen, Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core… Read Full Review

“PC SPECIALIST Extreme i7 DESKTOP”

Written on: 22/06/2014

Fantastic service, good website, helped me change and amend my order as many times as I wanted to with no hassle, the desktop itself is beautiful and works really fast. All the components are fitted fine and works perfectly. Came in a nice secure package with soft foam padding inside. Only thing I have to say was abit annoying was that on the 3TB harddrive i ordered there were personal and family files from the previous owner, fair enough that they reuse hard drives but atleast clean them out… Read Full Review
