“Good product - misleading delivery times.”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Luxor (1 review written)

It took 23 days from my order date to delivery of my new laptop. My laptop was almost 100% off the shelf standard - and it still took 23 days. PCS specify that "typical" delivery time is around 10 days from order acceptance. Thats very misleading when your order stays in a status of "Pre Acceptance" for 10 days before they even bother to move it along to the next stage. To quash any doubts - I had also paid for the product in full by VISA transaction - so there was no chance of credit… Read Full Review

“Brilliant in very way possible.”

Written on: 11/05/2015 by Hailey484 (1 review written)

Competitive prices, even compared to a certain low tax Asian city I reside in half of the year. Then there's also their brilliant notification system, e-mailing me every time my laptop has gone through another process in the production line. Brilliant laptop, brilliant service, brilliant pricing… Read Full Review

“Very Good Service”

Written on: 10/05/2015 by PUR3 (1 review written)

The service is very good and if help is needed you get it. the product is of very good quality and feels like it will last a while. the webpage its self if easy and simple to use with the drop down menus. the only downside is that the pre-production stage is a little too long, mine took around 12 days when the webpage states less than 1 week. the financing option is a very good option for people who don't have the sufficient funding. i myself chose to go with the finance option. in… Read Full Review

“Good quality laptop, overall impressed but very slow...”

Written on: 10/05/2015

After a recommendation from a friend I decided to purchase a custom built laptop from PC Specialist. The UltraNote II looked to be the best and the ability to customize the specification is superb. The laptop itself it high quality, sturdy, it looks and feels professional and understated unlike most consumer laptops which look and feel tacky and cheap. It is a laptop I would feel comfortable using for business purposes. The only disappointment for me was the length of time to receive the… Read Full Review

“a great pc”

Written on: 10/05/2015

A great pc although slight confusion when I contacted them to change my delivery date but it all turned out ok in the end. Staff were friendly, polite and approachable. The pc was packaged thoroughly and was delivered in mint condition. I would happily recommend pc specialist but would like to have been updated during my order as was under 'processing order' for aprox 10 days so was unsure if there were delays in the order. Also the finance options are flexible and the ease of applting was… Read Full Review

“Great custom laptop at a great price”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by dannydives (1 review written)

I needed a more powerful, portable laptop capable of intense video and photo editing, but was really struggling to find a suitable mainstream branded device on the high street and online - anything suitable was just not available or a crazy price! Then I came across PC Specialist. It was awesome being able to customize every aspect of the device, choosing for myself what I felt was necessary/unnecessary. The end price was extremely reasonable, especially for the power and portability of the… Read Full Review

“Birthday Present - 15.6" Cosmos II laptop”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by craigyd85 (1 review written)

My lovely wife decided that for my birthday I could purchase myself a laptop. It's been a while since I've bought a new PC (desktop or laptop) so I did a quick bit of research and soon found myself at the PCSpecialist website. It didn't take me long to realise they had everything I needed to make sure my birthday present was a great one! Website was intuitive to use, packed full of options and laid out in such a manner that I knew precisely how much of the missus money I was spending at any… Read Full Review

“My Gaming Rig”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by CaptainFreezy (1 review written)

I discovered PCS on a youtube advert around August last year and saw they build custom PCs. I was in need of a new one so I set about saving and just under two weeks ago, I ordered one. Here is a review of my excellent experience with them. CHOOSING THE BUILD Using the online configurator was absolutely effortless and very informative. I was easily able to find out information about what part I selected and if I had selected something not quite right, it would tell me how to rectify it. Once I… Read Full Review

“Excellent Machine!”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by kcPollard459 (1 review written)

After my 6 year old Sony Vaio all in one PC was starting to creak a little bit and the hard drive was nearly full, I decided to look for a new PC. I had seen an advert for PC specialist and decided to give them a go. I went back to a desktop PC for the first time in a long time and I must say I'm impressed with what I have so far. I loved the fact that you can customize the machine to exactly how you want it in terms of hard drive space, motherboard, graphics card etc. I chose my PC to… Read Full Review

“Very content overall”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by jrwlynch (1 review written)

Straightforward to put together a specification (and useful to check on the forums for what works and what doesn't), plus PCSpecialist were well ahead of the pack for providing what I wanted on price and specification. The only downside was that I ordered over the Easter break, which I knew would have some impact, but they were also moving premises at the time and hadn't advertised that - so it took a little over three weeks rather than the expected one-and-a-bit to get my machine. However… Read Full Review

“Long time to deliver but good pc”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Mickysmith2712 (1 review written)

The website said the average time was 4-9 days for my laptop to arrive it took about 13 working days (just under 3 weeks) which was a lot longer than expected. That being said I have ordered from pc specialist before and thoroughly enjoyed the product which is exactly the same for my new laptop. Overall, long delivery process but worth the wait… Read Full Review

“Excellent bespoke PC”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Mckinleyf171 (1 review written)

Their website is great - it lets you tinker with configurations until you find something you're happy with at the right price. From order to delivery took about 3 weeks, not bad for something totally bespoke, and you can see your build's status through your account on the website. I even amended my order halfway through the build and this is all done on the website with no hassle at all. The PC was very professionally packed for delivery, with an expanding foam bag in the tower cavity so… Read Full Review
