“Recently Purchased The Editing V700 PC -Excellent PC”

Written on: 01/03/2015 by HillL (1 review written)

I have recently purchased the Editing V700 from PCspecialist, after looking at other pc companies. I can honestly say that I have been extremely happy with both the machine and the process of purchase. The ability to spec the machine to my exact requirements through to the regular updates provided by the customer service was exceptional. On delivery the pc was extremely well packed, delivered on time and with clear instructions on initial setting up. The attention to detail with the layout… Read Full Review

“Pleased returning customer”

Written on: 28/02/2015 by ilike2burnthing (1 review written)

Fourth custom laptop I've ordered from PC Specialist, this being the second one for my brother, an upgrade from the last one which lasted well for nearly four years. The choice and customisation is extensive but easy to navigate, and while I didn't have to use them this time the official support and online forum are both friendly and accessible. Also have the potential to upgrade current systems. Build time has only improved with each successive laptop and delivery is always on time and… Read Full Review

“Great Customer Service”

Written on: 28/02/2015 by Patterson326 (1 review written)

I wanted a new PC, with a spec suitable for gaming. Having heard about PC Specialist from a few friends I decided to have a look. Their site has a system-builder, which guides you through specifying exactly what you want in your PC. At all times you can see the cost as you add components and it provides guidance, for example it informed me that the PSU I'dd added was over-spec for recommended something more suitable. The build and test process was quick and efficient. Delivery was… Read Full Review

“Long time PC, first time Specialist”

Written on: 27/02/2015 by umimiu (1 review written)

I've looked at pcspecialist.co.uk dreaming of a new gaming rig for years. I thought I'd finally bite the bullet. My computer is a beast, communications were great, machine is absolutely kick ass, cable tidying and every box ticket. I couldn't think of a more pleasant purchase experience and I know that I'll be using them for years to come. Competitively priced as well. Highly recommended to anyone. I can't stress that enough. Do it!… Read Full Review

“Delivery exellance”

Written on: 26/02/2015 by PaulatRusselldene (1 review written)

Because of the way in which I work at the moment, one week away and one week at home, I need to ensure that the delivery occurred during a week then I was at home. It was pretty easy to arrange that once the laptop was ready to be dispatched, it was held back for a few days. It all worked out as planned, so thanks for that, well done!… Read Full Review

Let's start by the very beginning. PCspecialists was recommended by a friend who is a expert in this kind of stuff. We built the "computer" together and as soon as I get it I was tremendously thankful to you guys. Perfect computer, perfect delivery system… Read Full Review

“Great service, great comms, thank you PC Specialist!”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by Cowan1981 (1 review written)

I really needed a new laptop. Really. After putting off the expense for a number of months, I decided to take the plunge and went with PC Specialist after I saw some of their laptops on the PC World website. It was a lot cheaper going straight to the source, and the opportunity to create a bespoke machine was very welcome. The website is very clear and gives a lot of useful technical information to a non-specialist like myself. After ordering a reasonably high end machine, I was expecting about… Read Full Review

“Another successful order”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by Raenryong (1 review written)

I ordered from pcspecialist.co.uk previously about three years ago. The PC I received was of high quality and has lasted me a long time; regardless, nothing lasts forever and I began to thirst for more power. It was a natural choice to return to them again; their website is intuitive, easy to use but allows great customisation - whether you're an avid gamer looking for a top-end PC or someone looking for a more moderate purchase, they have a massive selection of options which will satisfy… Read Full Review

“An all round fantastic machine, price and service.”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by Deanv245 (1 review written)

Initially I purchased a top spec desktop for my son to assist him with his computer coding and gaming design studies. He specified the components he wanted and was very pleased with the results. Based on this experience, I then purchased a laptop to run a music production work station in my studio, with a special emphasis on processing power. Once set up and working away I was impressed with the speed of both machines, the quality of the hardware and the fact that they perform perfectly. The… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and reliability”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by Saoryn (1 review written)

I had previously had to cancel an order I had made, but through no fault or complaint of PC Specialist, it was simply due to personal circumstances. This was easily done over the phone with no problems at all. Once I came to order a PC again, the website was easy and straight forward to use, with additional help available through various channels should it be required. During the building and testing phase, you are frequently updated on the status of your machine through the orders page, and… Read Full Review

“Purchasing a computer”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by jetmorgan (1 review written)

1. Wrong power lead. 2. Computer would not start. 3. The lead to the SSD was not connected. 4. The technician could not connect it properly because it is too short. 5. The technician had another lead but could not connect it because he was not permitted to remove the graphics card. 6. The technician has pushed the lead in as far as he can but it is not connected properly and he tells me it could come out. 7. There is a very bright red light showing on the mother board which stays on. 8. I rang… Read Full Review

“I have ordered numerous computers from PC specialist...”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by Cristoferq322 (1 review written)

I have ordered numerous computers from PC specialist over the years. I am always very happy with the products, it is a reliable company with high quality products. One of the main reasons is that I am a Linux user. As a Linux user, I like it that I can choose not to have Microsoft Windows installed. I do not want to have to pay for something that I would delete from my PC anyway. I also like the quality of the products and the quality of the delivery… Read Full Review

“Excellent shop with great service.”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by 28Greene (1 review written)

Even that i ordered pretty much "high-end" (i7 @4GHz ,GTX 980, 16GB RAM) parts my PC was ready in their "4-6 working days period". Everything was perfectly secured (special foam bag around VGA which i was really afraid can get damage in transport). Well everything is working smooth and without any errors (it's just a bit louder than i expected with those extra fans). Definetely going to buy again/recommend this shop. I need new monitor anyway hah :D… Read Full Review

“easy, fast, reliable.”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by hfMcMillan159 (1 review written)

A friend had his computer from there and recommended them when I needed a new machine. The website is very well laid out, letting you customise every detail to build your perfect computer, while the price is barely above buying the parts and building it yourself. Once you make the purchase the tracking of build process and delivery are fantastic, right up to delivery. Got the machine I wanted at a great price in 10 days. Highly recommend them… Read Full Review

“Fast, fast, fast!”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by Chana318 (1 review written)

The laptop arrived exactly on time as promised, with a text beforehand specifying the exact hour. My 14 year old son was the recipient and boy was he bowled over by the lightning speed. The GTX860 graphics card and i7 processor meant he was able to play all his games on ultra level (Far Cry, etc). Also, he does quite a bit of video and 3D rendering using After Effects and Blender. Again, like a knife through butter. The 15.6 inch screen is also backlit so perfect for those late night gaming… Read Full Review

“So far this computer has lived up to it's price tag....”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by Kayleyu272 (1 review written)

So far this computer has lived up to it's price tag. Was probably purchased to play games on and it has successfully complete the task. Choosing the parts for the computer was very hard but through the use of the forum on the site, I had soon decided what to put into my computer. I would recommend this site to everyone I know as it is the complete package for creating a computer… Read Full Review
