“Very Good Value”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by Christinerose (1 review written)

This is the third desk top we have had made up by pc specialist, the second one it still working fine the first one sadly died of old we need two so here we are back at PC Specialist, we get to choose what goes in there from past experience they run great and if there is a problem we know help is at hand. The only small belly ache this time was the lack of progress updates it did take longer to make and test this time due to lots of orders but I would have appreciated a little more… Read Full Review

“Some assembly required...?”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by Lorodiam (1 review written)

The process of ordering the computer was simple and straightforward. The communication after the computer was ordered was adequate. The build time was a little long but I can live with that... My only severe criticism is somewhere along the process someone had obviously failed to clip the graphics card into its slot correctly. When the PC arrived I could hear something rattling around inside it. When I opened the casing it turned out that the thing rattling around was the graphics card… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with my Optimus V!”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by Lauriepop (1 review written)

My new laptop is everything I was hoping for at a very reasonable price. The chassis is sturdy and uncluttered, and the performance exceeds expectations. PCSpecialist also make it very easy to make amendments to your order. The only downside is the sound quality of the speakers, which I was expecting anyway. I don't feel that it's too much of an issue especially when weighed up against all the positives. Buying from you also means no bloatware to get rid of, which I'm very thankful for!… Read Full Review

“Great service, great price”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by 43Timmons (1 review written)

The PC configurator was very easy to use and guided me through any conflicts. The site rejected my payment card but a simple phone call to a very helpful member of staff quickly processed the payment. Thereafter I received regular and accurate e-mail updates on the progress of my PC through the assembly process. I had a text to confirm when delivery would take place and the machine arrived in the two hour delivery slot that was given. The PC was well packaged and undamaged upon receipt. I… Read Full Review

“Great pc's at great prices!”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by AmiyaFuller (1 review written)

I have used pc specialist for 3 computers now and find that the high street stores are just not in the same league. They do take longer to get as they are 100% custom built unlike other company's that provide you with 'custom' computers on next day delivery and they never seem to be quite up to scratch!… Read Full Review

“Excellent laptop and service”

Written on: 29/03/2014

I was impressed by the service I received from PC Specialist. Not only did they keep me informed of each stage of the build process, but when I needed to contact them to change my order, they were helpful and polite. My laptop was well-packaged and was delivered on the day specified in the e-mail I was sent. I was pleased with the quality and build of my laptop and would definitely recommend PC Specialist to friends and family. The cost of my new laptop, although not cheap, I believe was… Read Full Review

“great service”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by Rafferty273 (1 review written)

So good to actually speak to someone on the phone to discuss requirements and validate the choices I had made. I had a specific configuration change that I wanted to make but the website wouldn't let me. The agent talked me through it and said they could fit it in. He was knowledgeable about the products and how they fitted together. Delivery was excellent. I got a text to say an hour slot that they would be arriving and they arrive bang on the start time. … Read Full Review

“PcSpecialist great service”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by Johnr1829 (1 review written)

Having finally decided to use PcSpecialist after a poor experience with John Lewis I got more than I bargained for. It was easy to make my selection, including several changes a while later. Information was alway up to date on my account, I could track my order including knowing where the delivery van was as it was on its way to me. Overall a great and informative experience. I will recommend this company to everyone without hesitation… Read Full Review

“Excellent ordering, pre-delivery ,delivery service and PC!”

Written on: 28/03/2014

This is undoubtedly the most professionally handled purchade I have ever made, from the on line order form to build progress indications on the website to the text messages indicating delivery time to within the hour. The product itself (i7 16 Gb RAM desktop with SSD and Windows 8.1) is well built and works just fine. This firm deserves great success… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with the machines”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by DaveInKent (1 review written)

I love the fact I can customise every part of the build, that I can choose the operating system and am not forced into having a specific OS. The whole process was easy from start to finish have already recommended to friends and will definitely be using them again. … Read Full Review

“Easiest way to build a solid PC”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by MediaGrand (1 review written)

My previous PC was from PC Specialist and gave me 7 years trouble free computing. The only reason I upgraded was for a faster PC running Windows 7 64 bit, the old PC still runs like a dream. Choosing parts can sometimes be a nightmare but PC Specialists picking system matches the parts for compatibility and makes the process very easy. My new PC with i7 processor, 16GB memory and 2TB HD will hopefully last another 7 years and allow me to use the latest 64 bit software. It's amazingly fast… Read Full Review

“Review PC (KitGuru.net)”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by ENSORS (1 review written)

Just to say I am really pleased with my new PC. The SSD drive boots up really quickly. Play most games at top settings. Will Suit my gaming needs for a few years to come. Delivery packaging was great. Only downside was it took 17 days to build. However, these machines are build and tested to a high standard. Would recommend to friends… Read Full Review

“Third order but very slow to arrive”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by John1882 (1 review written)

I've bought from PC Specialist twice before, and was very happy on the previous two occasions. This time the PC took much longer to arrive than the timings posted on the website as their current lead times inferred. PC is good - but not great. On the whole it's fine, but there is an occasional rattle (after 10 days) Price is not high, although a friend bought simultaneously elsewhere at a similar price and received his PC a week before mine… Read Full Review

“Great product and pretty boss service”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by annoyingrockstar (1 review written)

I ordered my PC after a lot of thought and research. PC specialist had all the components I wanted and was easy to get everything together. While the building process took a while, due to a high order volume as I was told, as soon as mine was done I had it in days and couldn't be happier … Read Full Review

It is very good. Although the internet is very slow. There always seems to be a little yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in it,I was wondering could you tell me what that means.Also is there any reason that there is updates every time I turn it off. Apart from this it is a great computer… Read Full Review

“Very Happy Customer”

Written on: 26/03/2014 by Heather_Church (1 review written)

I built my last 5 computers myself, and I was dubious about purchasing from and allowing a company to build my latest PC. However prices are much higher in the UK than they are in my native America and this was simply far more cost effective. Also whenever and wherever I looked for a parts wholesaler people said "go to PC Specialist, it's cheaper and better than doing it yourself." That was absolutely the truth. From start to finish I've been completely pleased and impressed with PC… Read Full Review

I can't believe I forgot to put this in my review- the PC runs *fantastically*. After doing some heavy benchmarking and stress testing I can say that it is rock stable and keeps very, very cool. I'd definitely give a 6th star if I could.

“Goodbye XP hello Windows 8!”

Written on: 25/03/2014 by stag18 (2 reviews written)

A few weeks ago my employer broke the news that XP was no longer being supported by Microsoft and sent me on Windows 8 training. A nice cop out of real work for an afternoon until it dawned on me that the heaving sighing old relic in the corner of my living room was really ready for replacement. (no not my husband but my 10 year old Packard Bell currently running XP on a good day with the wind blowing in the right direction!) Speaking of my husband in years gone by he has always been a fan of… Read Full Review
