“Ordering Nvidia Shield Tablet”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by Ralphy21 (1 review written)

I pre-ordered the Nvidia Shield tablet, took a while to be dispatched but when I wrote to ask why I was told what was going on and why so long. The things I liked were that When I emailed the replies were quick and helpful and finally when my item was dispatched it arrived quickly and well packed. The thing I disliked was that the date changed a couple of times when I emailed asking… Read Full Review

“Almost perfect, just one thing”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by TheDLongdon (1 review written)

I am very pleased with the laptop I ordered. It was built and delivered within three weeks which I thought was very reasonable since it is built on order and tested. I had one issue when setting up my laptop, when setting up the basics (after activating Windows 8) it would freeze when selecting a wifi connection. But nothing a reboot couldn't. The only main issue I have, is that sometimes the laptop would make a crackling noise. This isn't a big issue but a slight annyoing. As I have used the… Read Full Review

“Very satisfied but frustrating at start ”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by pwardman (1 review written)

I am very pleased with my computer and the hardware it came with, however when I first tried to activate Google chrome the Bulldog virus software would not allow me too, I had to re-install chrome and completely remove bulldog from the operating system but after that all was well so overall I am extremely happy with the result of my product and I will always use this site from now on for my PC needs… Read Full Review

“Custom Vortex IV Elite”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by orbitaldx (1 review written)

Ordered a custom Vortex IV Elite on a Friday and it was with me by the following Friday, well in advance of their estimated assembly and delivery times. The laptop is sleek and fairly compact (considering how powerful it is) and doesn't have a logo on the lid which is nice. It is functional and powerful. My only complaints are complaints common to all laptops; things like the lack of battery life and the fact that it is quite noisy for its size. In summary, everything I requested is present… Read Full Review

“Build time took ages and mouse pad is dodgy”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by JuneDolan451 (1 review written)

It took almost a month from paying for the laptop to it being delivered and I think this is far too long. Also my mouse pad doesn't work properly and I have a small chip on the laptop when I opened it. The rest of the laptop is good however… Read Full Review

“Superb from start to finish”

Written on: 04/10/2014 by 427Morris (1 review written)

I ordered a new custom build gaming PC for my son one Sunday afternoon and it was delivered just 12 days later. The website is very informative and easy to use with clear explanations of the all options. Once the order was placed my son logged in every day to see the live status of the order as it moved through the various stages of the process. They really pack their PCs well and the instructions for set up are very clear and easy to follow. We had it up and running in no time and the… Read Full Review

“Great laptop would definetley recommend”

Written on: 04/10/2014 by vvOgden1969 (1 review written)

Had my laptop now for a couple of weeks couldn't be more happy. What stands out is the service you get by either the phone or logging in to your account and watching stage the process of the laptop build is at. Delivery was fast and was impressed with the emails and text service you get about the order. Will return in the future for another laptop upgrade… Read Full Review

“Absolutely fantastic service”

Written on: 03/10/2014 by QMac10 (1 review written)

What a absolutely fantastic service. Right from the start you customising your build, you feel like you are in completely control of your budget. If you are: 1. Confused what are the best build/components for your budget. 2. Just need advice 3. Need advice on the type of computer you need. For example you are film editing, and you need advice for the best build. Then the pcspecialist forum is the best place to visit. You are communicated throughout each phase of the production. Once you… Read Full Review

“A Review of PCspecicalist”

Written on: 03/10/2014 by bjroth (1 review written)

PCspecialist provides an easy to use website which offers one of the largest selections of hardware on the web. I was able to easily design the gaming rig I wanted in seconds at a price that beats all others due to the customisability factor. Other rigs I looked at were either too limited or too powerful due to hardware I deemed unnecessary. PCspecialist allowed me to pick what I wanted precisely, keeping the cost below that of similar rigs. The customer feedback provided gave me information… Read Full Review

“Rough as expected”

Written on: 02/10/2014 by Jun95 (1 review written)

As the price wasn't exactly phenomenally high, you can't expect too much about the laptop. However, it runs everything, and does everything i want it to do so I have no qualms with it. The only thing that does slightly bother me would be the size of the screen but of course, I chose that so the laptop is not to blame. Windows 8 is new to me so that takes getting used to and i'm at uni so i don't know if the internet problems are the laptop or the uni internet. All in all, solid… Read Full Review

“13.3" Optimus V Laptop”

Written on: 02/10/2014 by jonnybob (1 review written)

Very happy with my laptop, built to a great spec for the price, looks good and performs extrmely well. The only two slightly negative points are, the fan can be loud when at full power and delivery took longer than expected but I was in no great hurry. The backlit keyboard is very nice with excellent buttons for typing and the screen is fantastic. This review is after 2 weeks of use, hopefully it will last another 5-6 years like my previous Sony Vaio… Read Full Review

“Great Laptop at a low price.”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by 336Church (1 review written)

This was my first laptop from PCSpecialist, the laptop in question was the Cosmos II, which I had purchased for use at university as I obviously couldn’t carry my desktop to and from lectures to write notes down on. The initial experience was rather pleasant, I was given a host of options for the type of laptop I wanted as well as the components that I could outfit the laptop with. Almost every aspect could be customised, even options to change the screen type (IPS or TN). My only… Read Full Review
