“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

“It was a really good service!”

Written on: 30/09/2014

I really enjoyed using pcspecialist. The order process was really useful and once my pc had been ordered I could constantly know what it's status was. The delivery time once dispatched was much faster then I anticipated and I loved that! There has not been one moment of the process which I havnt disliked. When I called your helpline to make sure that it was all ok (had been in preprocessing for 12 working days) the customer service were really helpful and friendly! Thank you for your great… Read Full Review

“Great PC's, Good Value”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by Bo1988 (1 review written)

I recently ordered a new gaming rig through PC specialist and I could not be happier with the product. The PC is exactly what I was after for the money I was happy to pay. The order process is excellent with hundreds if not thousands of component choices for your PC and it also does a quick computability check at the end of your part selection to ensure you are not making any silly errors if you are a bit of a tech novice like myself. The order took some time to come which did concern me… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2014 by tracking_triumphant (1 review written)

Build time was unfortunately terrible apparently due to university term beginning. Hopefully others will experience better build times. But once my computer arrived i found the build quality excellent and when a problem with the Windows update lost my network capability tech support helped me fix it competently. … Read Full Review

This will be my second machine from PC Specialist. My first was a laptop, my first step into PC gaming, after two and a half years the machine is still running perfectly however i wanted a more powerful gaming machine and this time i went with a Desktop from advise from their Forum. Desktops being more upgrade-able and more powerful than there laptop counterparts. Not knowing much about desktop set ups i found the PCS configuration process an essential tool to building my machine, the tool… Read Full Review

“Disappointing. ”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by ezPorter397 (1 review written)

Very slow at building the laptop, once it finally arrived, opened box and the laptop was somewhat scratched on the lid. Powered on, hate the PC Specialist Splash screen. This was changed. BIOS is very basic. Had to go through setup?!? Thought this would have been done already. Turns out that the Nvidia Geforce 850m was not configured properly and the integrated chipset powers most graphics based things, which results in a poor performance graphics wise. This is very frustrating. Gets very hot… Read Full Review

“now works fine”

Written on: 27/09/2014 by heatonbluesky (3 reviews written)

The computer now works fine, after I replaced a faulty DVD drive with a replacement one, supplied promptly by PC Specialist. I preferred to replace it myself, rather than send the whole computer back to PC Specialist, as this would have necessitated me uninstalling lots of confidential stuff. The process, with their guidance, turned out to be relatively simple and pain-free, and quite interesting. I had selected an Overclocked Intel Core i7 computer (with 16 Gigs of RAM, a 1 TByte hard disc and… Read Full Review

“Great laptop and good value for money!!!!”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by marco79 (1 review written)

I'm really happy about the product as it is exactly as I want it. I was concerned about the laptop "body" as I couldn't choose it but I found out that it is even better than I expected. The only think that annoyed me is that in the website didn't specified that I have to wait 1 month to receive it and not 9 working days. I am anyway very satisfied and I don't regret choosing PCspecialist and I would definitely recommend it. … Read Full Review
