“Excellent Service and Product”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by TimMason (1 review written)

I used PC Specialist on recommendation of a friend who said that he would not go anywhere else when buying a desktop or laptop computer. I can see why. I considered a ready-built computer but decided to get one made to my specifications. It was easy to do, I was kept informed of progress and the computer was delivered when they said it would be delivered. I have only used the computer for a few days and I have had no problems and I am delighted with my purchase… Read Full Review

“Poor feedback”

Written on: 19/07/2014

It took less than the average time receiving my product but when it arrived the computer was making a weird sound and mouse pad wasn't working properly. I thought about returning it but apparently there is a cost of £35 and i needed in rush. So i gave up and decided to keep it, anyway it is working, let see for how long... Some advice would be helpful at the time of choosing all components as well… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by Childerscn150 (1 review written)

It was very easy to choose an option online, and then phone the number that was listed to discuss the options further. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly and after discussing the configuration and design of the laptop that i required i was informed of costs, transport, any possible delays and other info. I was kept informed of the build progress at all times. On receipt of the laptop i naturally checked it over. The packaging was excellent. Upon removal of all items from the… Read Full Review

“Impeccable Service and Superb Quality Product!”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by foofiter (1 review written)

Buying a custom build PC has been a dream of mine for a long time. I searched a few sites that offered the service and after finding PC Specialist i was very happy with their site. I was able to easily build the PC a component at a time. I have a little knowledge of the technical side of a PC but not enough to be able to confidently build one myself. After choosing all the components the site checks the components to make sure they are all compatible with each other. This is done instantly… Read Full Review

“Computer is great, performance is whopping!”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by natzhar (1 review written)

Wow this computer is absolutely fantastic, First of all, the case is very stylish while also offering great protection for the insides. With the graphics card, I am more than happy. I generally play wow and setting all the settings to ultra I get a great fps and the game plays without any lag, I am also going to try out LoL today. I kind of tried to play Sims for my first time, also no lag on ultra! Computer is loading very, very fast. It would be kind of interesting if before the purchase you… Read Full Review

“Overall very happy”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by adam.caudle.7 (1 review written)

First off the website is easy to use and very flexible. So I did about 5 different configurations before settling on the one I wanted and it wasn't a problem. Secondly, PC Specialist keeps you informed all through the process and you can also log into your account and see what stage your build is at. So I would give them 10 out of 10 for communication. Thirdly, they did deliver within their suggested time frame, so they kept to their word. Finally, the computer came as requested and in… Read Full Review

“Quick no nonsense quality!”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by vikingstudios (1 review written)

These are my 4 and 5 desktops from PCSpecialist. 3 have been top end desktops and the other 2 standard desktops. Each of the orders have been met within 2 weeks, arrived fit for use with no need to tweak anything. Communication has been excellent with regular updates about how the process is going. I could have had there last 2 machines 2 days earlier but I delayed their delivery due to now being around to receive them. Inside they are well put together and are very tidy!… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service. A little unclear on processing time”

Written on: 17/07/2014

Overall I am very pleased with the service I've received and the end product (High spec gaming laptop) is just what I wanted. There is very little I could suggest they do to improve the quality of their product. There are two small improvements I think would make a huge difference in how readily I would use PC specialist again, both to do with the information given on the website. The first is the amount of time they claim it takes on average for an order to be processed and dispatched. The… Read Full Review

“Mixed messages but still happy”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by AmeliaStewart436 (1 review written)

The PC itself is fantastic, as well it should be for an i7/32Gb machine. I did pay for the three day build, but the PC took about 8 days to build. I did recieve some mixed and contradictory messages about the progress of the order and delivery during this period. This was frustrating and unhelpful, as I had been recommended PC Specialist by a trusted friend and I genuinely wanted the whole process to go smoothly. That said, PC specialist refunded the extra costs quickly, without quibbling and… Read Full Review

“PC Build and Delivery Review”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by KameronBennett199 (1 review written)

From order to delivery at my door, PC Specialist where practically faultless every step of the way. When choosing the build, the website ensures that you pc with compatible and will work with all the chosen components, including the size of the case and the PSU. After the order is placed, regular emails and text messages are sent out to let you know at what stage of the build process your computer is at, and an update every time it enters a new stage. Brilliant, precise information is more… Read Full Review

“Easy ordering and excellent price”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by Dunn144 (1 review written)

I was after a high spec laptop for CAD that wasn't going to break the bank. PC Specialist were easily the cheapest on the market for what I wanted (Half the price of MISCO). I was informed about the build at all stages and the laptop arrived safely within the suggested time frame. The quality of the laptop build is very good. The chassis is strong and the casing has a good finish. The screen/lid could be a little more substantial and less flexible, but that is a minor point for such a good… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Delivery, Quality and Price”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by SiennaBroussard (1 review written)

Ordered a computer for a backup office computer with the 5 day fast track delivery. Ordered on the Sunday and arrived on the Wednesday. Computer really well built, good cable management. Didn't specify what HDD I wanted other than a 500GB one, came with a Toshiba drive. Got a slimmer form factor than other 3.5 drives I've seen… Read Full Review

“Custom is the way to go!”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by illuminatus2012 (1 review written)

I ordered an Ultranote II model, with 1TB serial ATA and 60GB SSD. I chose no operating system, as I wanted to install my own and boot to the SSD. When I came to do this, it was really straight forward, as pcspecialist had already set the bios to do exactly that. The only minor issue I had is that I was supplied with a Windows 8 driver disc, instead of Windows 7. But having phoned the very friendly customer service team, I was swiftly directed to the website where I could download all drivers… Read Full Review

“Very happy”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by Zaynew279 (1 review written)

I had no idea you could have a custom made laptop until I came across the pcspecialist site. With prebuilt systems there would always be one piece of spec I was not completely happy with which would always nag away at me. Their customisation options are fantastic. The ordering process itself was also very good. Obviously being custom made, there is a bit of a wait between ordering and delivery, but you are kept updated on every stage of the build process - mine took just over 2 weeks. One… Read Full Review

“Ultranote II with Ubuntu”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by shiftybushman (3 reviews written)

PCSpecialist Utranote II CPU: i7-MQ4712, 8Gb RAM, 1080p IPS screen, 500Gb hard drive. £570 I ordered this laptop for 3 reasons: 1) The customisability - you can choose exactly what components you want 2) The value for money - this processor is normally used only on very expensive laptops. It's amazing to get a 1080p IPS screen for this price as well. 3) I don't use Microsoft Windows - You can order this laptop without an OS and save £80. This laptop is available in France with Ubuntu… Read Full Review
