“quality, reliable, honest”

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

I ordered a laptop. I was really impressed with the quality of the machine. PC specialists were reliable and honest when keeping me informed about the progress of the building of the machine. When I used the support PC Specialists again showed their reliability with fantastic and quick support… 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

“UltraNote II: 15.6" ”

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

I found out about pcspecialist after scouring the market for a laptop that would suit my needs. Unfortunately the only computer that had the spec I desired was a Mac. However I couldn't bring myself to part with the cash. That's when I found pcspecialist and decided to spec my own laptop. The major advantage of doing this is you get CRAAAAAZY good value for money. I paid under £800 for a 15" lightweight laptop with I7 quad core processor, a 500 GB SSD and 8 MB or RAM- find me a market laptop… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Gamming PC”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by CamrenGill432 (1 review written)

My son wanted a gamming PC and after a load of looking around we decided to build one. Looking at the price of components, it worked out cheaper to get the correct spec and have PC Specialist build it. I was kept updated through the whole process and delivery was as expected. Very glad we went down this route, as I couldn’t fault the process and will deal with them again in the future… Read Full Review

“Awesome Portable Linux Notebook”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by callum.wilson.526 (1 review written)

The Mirage II makes a fantastically portable notebook computer - it is small and light enough to fit inside a large handbag and has a battery that appears to last for at least 4 hours of use. We use Fedora Linux here, this machine runs smoothly and all the features including the advanced power saving measures work perfectly. We were able to specify an SSD and some extra memory so that this machine will boot in seconds - important for those who are on the move all the time… Read Full Review

“Cheap and nasty”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by Carterg426 (1 review written)

Bought a laptop and the hard drive died after six weeks. Spoke to the company who then expect you to go and replace things yourself. However, even when they attempt to guide you through the process they can't even do that. … Read Full Review

“excellent services”

Written on: 24/09/2014

I received my computer perfectly packed 20 days after I ordered it (perfectly in the announced time frame). I have been well informed of all the different steps of the process. The use of the website was very friendly and accurate. I was able to create the perfect configuration matching my needs for almost 300 € less than a preconfigured machine. The cosmos II laptop I bought has 2 small drawbacks : the keyboard is slightly spongy and doesn't have backligh (a bit sad for this price). The case… Read Full Review

“Desktop PC”

Written on: 24/09/2014 by lyNorth477 (1 review written)

I ordered my PC from PC Specialists and on the whole i was happy with my purchase the waiting time from ordering to finally arriving was a little slow as i had to wait almost 2 weeks. When it arrived it was very well packaged and very easy to set up my only gripe was they could include more power cables and maybe a couple of sata cables as i had my own SSD and DVD drive and had to buy new cables before i got it all up and running the way i wanted it. Overall i would happily do business again… Read Full Review

“Great PC for great price”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by sharkieSVK (1 review written)

I have ordered a desktop PC for extreme gaming and coding below 800 pounds. Although I only have it for two weaks, I can tell that this machine was built to perfection. It runs fast and smooth, and it's very quiet. The package/box included everything in it and it was brand new. The set up was quite easy (even for me as a girl) and I had the PC run in a few minutes. My only problem was that when I was selecting the wi-fi, I didn't see that the basic said NO WI-FI INCLUDED. I guess I was so… Read Full Review

“Just what we ordered..”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by stormwire (1 review written)

Buying experience spot on, fully informed all the way... Sadly my son has to wait for his computer as a penance for getting over adventurous...investigating things which were out of bounds .. however if the product be as good as the service then it will be a big hit for my son. We hope it will assist him with his A levels in ICT taken next year. As my son researched were to have his computer built he feels it will be a star possession.. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Great alternative to mainstream PC vendors”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by MDumont1 (1 review written)

I recently purchased a 14" Ultranote II from PC Specialist as a day-to-day PC. In short, my spec was an i5-4210M processor, 8GB of RAM, a 120GB SSD and a 500GB HDD with Windows 8.1. Firstly, the website is brilliant. The available options are clearly displayed and navigable whilst the total cost remains visible so you can customize to your needs. After ordering the waiting time for me to receive the PC was longer than I expected (almost 4 weeks). Also, the online waiting-time calculator (that… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist Review”

Written on: 21/09/2014 by McConnellii1950 (1 review written)

First off, I really liked the interface for customization as it allowed you to calculate the overall price in real time so you could pick and mix to get the most out of your budget in a fast and effective manner. The system also seemed quite aware of what I was ordering, clarifying it would be best to install the operating system of the SSD I had chosen, but giving me the option to have it installed to the HDD should I wish to do so. After placing my order, I appreciated that I was updated… Read Full Review

“Great customisable laptops and PCs”

Written on: 20/09/2014 by amoshi (1 review written)

Very good experience with PC Specialist. Ordered my laptop during a very busy period so it took rather long to arrive (2.5 weeks) but that's understandable. I was updated about every step of my laptop production, from pre-production to dispatch. The laptop was delivered very safely, I was positively surprised by the amount of protection in the box. It works great and looks elegant, there's really nothing I can complain about. Definitely buying from PC Specialist again if I ever need a PC or… Read Full Review

Pc-Specialist made my day! Creating a custom PC never been so simple and yet so elegant. I first had my doubts but when I saw a gigantic box arrive at my doorstep in 4 days, I knew that I could count every-time on PC-Specialist.

“PC Specialist highly recommended”

Written on: 20/09/2014 by Harperxs266 (1 review written)

I have now bought 2 pc's and a laptop from PC Specialist and highly recommend them. Their prices are good, products are high quality and you get exactly what specs you want. You can keep track of your order from the moment you place it, delivery is efficient, and with the laptop I changed my specs half way through build time - no problem at all. After sales service is also excellent. If I need more computers I will go back to PC Specialist… Read Full Review

“Good service, one small issue”

Written on: 20/09/2014 by Housese465 (1 review written)

Like the title says, i'm happy with my new pc and the condition it was delivered in. My only minor gripe is that the motherboard sockets at the back don't quite line up with the case, after bending the small metal tabs back i have access to one of the usb 3.0 slots but unfortunately the other is too much behind the case to use. regardless i'm still happy with the pc… Read Full Review

“Only thing faster is my SSD”

Written on: 18/09/2014 by gamebenchjake (1 review written)

As my last laptop was dying a rather painful death (ULV Dual-Core Celeron), I needed a new laptop for work and started looking into my options here in the UK. As I'm originally from Canada, it took a lot for me to stomach the difference in prices. First thing I found with PC Specialist was that their prices are competitive with even my old suppliers back home. Once I started looking, I quickly zeroed in on a Cosmos II 15.6" base, and began building out my new toy. Choosing the parts was made… Read Full Review
