“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

“Fantastic Customer Service”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by 144Hartley (1 review written)

The over all quality of the service was very good. the website was easy to use and understand, the specifications and choice was varied. I would be very happy to recommend PC specialist to to family and friends. the only criticisms for the service was that it was not clear when choosing components for my rig, who the gpu manufacturer would be? I received a Titan x as part of my order that was a Palit model, if I would have known I may have chosen Asus or EVGA myself and left this option… Read Full Review

“Buy now, get in 2 months.”

Written on: 07/05/2015

I've actually not got my product yet. I ordered it 20 days ago and got a phone call today saying they didn't have the parts. But they could offer me slower, less reliable parts in there place. Surely across 20 days one can count how many of a thing you have, and how many of them you have had ordered. What's more concerning is they are still accepting orders for them. I could go buy a PC with a Samsung 850 in it now from them, despite the fact I know they don't have any. And it's not like they… Read Full Review

“Buying all my computers from this website from now on ”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by 460MacKinnon (1 review written)

My review could go on forever, so I'll try to make it short. Service: couldn't be better. delivery reliable and on time. Passionate staff that actually know about what the best components are for a specific use, not just trained by a book such as retail store staff. Website is very clear and easy to use with good solid descriptions of all the components. Computer: I got mine a year ago now. Never had any problems, has not once crashed, cannot remember any time it has frozen either, and I run… Read Full Review

“Easy, helpful and just what i needed”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by jonnyradford (1 review written)

Being somewhat of a novice to pc building, I found pcspecialist incredibly well structured as a site and the process I went through to get my desktop was simple and easily altered. I emailed for advice on certain graphics cards and the overall build I had put together and got a quick, good reply. They suggested I change my graphics card which was easily done shortly after ordering. I could see how the process of building and testing was going, which was quick. It was dispatched one day after… Read Full Review

“Skyfire III Review”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by 1949Kane (1 review written)

The laptop I ordered was Skyfire III. Although in all honesty it didn't matter a whole bunch as everything was very customizeable. This allowed me to make the laptop that suited me perfectly. My favourite part was that I was allowed to chose between windows 7 and 8, instead of being stuck with windows 8 without a choice. The service was overall extremely good, the emails kept me up to date with the progress made on my computer and the delivery time was very reasonable… Read Full Review

“Great laptop but slow service. ”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by Hannahoshea1 (1 review written)

Firstly, the website is nice and simple to use, and creating a custom laptop was really simple, with plenty of options. Having done this I was really looking forward to it arriving. Unfortunately this took much longer than I had expected from looking at the stats on their webpage. After a couple of weeks I got in contact with someone on the 'live chat' feature, which was very slow and not particularly helpful. I was told twice that the laptop would go into production that day or the day after… Read Full Review

“Longer than expected, but worth the wait.”

Written on: 03/05/2015 by J.Barker (1 review written)

Having previously used PC specialist for my previous system, I knew what I should be expecting. The selection process is simple yet in depth, giving a help button to be able to compare what was on offer. The cost was updated immediately whenever any changes are made, and this helped to keep within my budget. I'd played around with different specs, checking reviews of everything and kept a quote which I came back to a few times before submitting an order. In the end, I had come to settle on a… Read Full Review

“Very Happy Customer!”

Written on: 03/05/2015 by PaytenHiggins (1 review written)

I ordered a new desktop PC to replace my existing 5 year old PC Specialist desktop. Once again, I was really pleased with the help and assistance I received prior to purchase when I sought advice on which components would best suit my needs. I love the fact that I can select the components I need during the order process and get an exact quote on what my new PC will cost. The quality of the components and the build are second to none and I am delighted with my new PC. Delivery was prompt and I… Read Full Review

“Very Happy”

Written on: 03/05/2015

I found their website fairly easy to use, with easy navigation and lots of information so you're never lost. They don't lie to you about how long you'll be waiting for your laptop, they say it can take several weeks when they're really busy, but mine came sooner than expected as i expect most would. The product i got in the end was very high quality and i was extremely happy with it. I've had only one or two small technical problems, but nothing i didn't know how to fix, and their customer… Read Full Review
