“I7 desktop custom spec”

Written on: 24/06/2015

I used the forums to help fine tune my specification, as I am not an expert in the latest components. On the whole I am very pleased with the result. High end dsktop with my choice of extras for same price as an off the shelf unit, that would have had different compromises to the ones i was prepared to make. Well packaged. Minor grumbles are the time it took (but I did choose not to pay extra for the express service) and the Fan noise is a little bit dissapointing as I specified a quiet… Read Full Review

“Don't change anything”

Written on: 23/06/2015

The web site was easy to use, the price was great, the customer service was brilliant and it was delivered on time with a text of when its going to be delivered 2 days in advance. I have used PC Specialist to buy both my Laptop and my Desktop, and both times everything has been flawless. I would and have recommended PC Specialist to anyone who is looking to buy a PC… Read Full Review

“Awful machine!! Service not good.”

Written on: 23/06/2015 by EfrainNolan442 (1 review written)

I bought my machine from them in early September 2014. By January it has already had to go back once because of a motherboard overheating problem. They repaired it and sent it back to me. Now June and it's gone back again. I rely on my laptop so much that I've been reluctant to send it back and have just put up with things as they failed. The mousepad practially had a hole in it and was causing friction burns by March, the wireless adapter was intermittent and the light on the front no… Read Full Review

“A fantastic shopping experience.”

Written on: 23/06/2015 by Zoiew26 (1 review written)

Being able to easily customise a PC, along with using the PC Specialist forums to get support and advice regarding the build, was one of the best shopping experiences I've seen and used for some time. My order took 14 working days to arrive (so nearly 3 weeks in total, including a bank holiday) but tracking the progress on the website was good. I also received email updates along the way to keep me informed of the different stages of production and shipment. Delivery was perfect, the… Read Full Review

“Pro Audio Music PC”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by NewGoldDream (1 review written)

I began researching options for a new PC in March and looked at a number of suppliers and options over a two month period but ordered from PC Specialist because of the greater options available for the various components. The website was easy to use with good prompts whenever there was a conflict between chosen options. I would have preferred my saved quotes to be available for more than the 5 days though as it took me two months to make a final decision but it is hardly a criticism. Although… Read Full Review

The ability to ditch unnecessary add-ons but really ramp up the processor speed and RAM size makes PC Specialist an ideal place to buy a work computer. Lots of communication- box delivered 2 weeks after ordering… Read Full Review

“A pleasure from start to finish.”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by ysReilly335 (1 review written)

First new computer I have actually bought. I usually get hand-me-downs from my brother. The site was very easy to navigate. I tried several builds and asked my friends(whom I play online with), to have a look .After a few minor changes I ordered the computer. Ordered on Monday 18:45. After regular emails from the site informing me of the progress, it arrived 13:00 on the Thursday.Opened the box,removed the packaging, plugged it all in and runs like a dream. I was very nervous at spending almost… Read Full Review

“A PC amatuer ”

Written on: 21/06/2015 by glasgowbiker1 (1 review written)

I used PC specialist for the first time. I found the website easy to use and was confident that the spec that I chose was all compatible as they do a check once completed. They also do a cost at the end which can be tweaked if you find you have overspent on your budget. I followed the progress of my computer through the build and was kept informed at every stage. The delivery was relatively quick considering that I wanted it yesterday. I was able to track the order right down to the last… Read Full Review

“Now I have a Command Centre...Ho, Ho, Ho”

Written on: 21/06/2015 by LeighMeriit (1 review written)

Very impressed with these guys, the website was great to spec out a machine and offer advice where needed on the forum. The turnaround time was a lot quicker than expected, communication throughout the build, quality assurance and testing was perfect and allowed me enough time to organise when I could be around for the delivery. The best bit was set up and config, which allowed me to see first hand how efficiently built the machine was...seriously inside the tower it's a work of art and… Read Full Review

“Little longer than expected”

Written on: 21/06/2015 by Cakeboy (3 reviews written)

Very pleased with the final product and the price. It took a little longer than I thought it would to arrive though as it seemed to get stuck in a pre-build stage for a while. It wasn't until I had a couple of web chats with customer services that it suddenly seemed to start moving through the processes - whether or not that was just coincidence I don't know. I got the feeling that if I hadn't pushed then nothing would have happened. However, it was only just outside the times quoted on… Read Full Review

“Trustworthy and reliable”

Written on: 20/06/2015 by Zaire262 (1 review written)

The website makes building your own system extremely easy even to those new to it. The prices of components are listed so you know exactly what you are paying for and it is easy to make sure your components are compatible as warnings will be given if they aren't. Price wise pcspecialist is not much more expensive than building it yourself if you want to save yourself the hassle and it is delivered safely to you with plenty of protection and packaging within a few weeks of ordering… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist - Desktop PC purchase”

Written on: 19/06/2015 by MattB27 (1 review written)

This is the third system I have purchased from PC Specialist, this one to replace my ageing desktop from 2008. The main draw for me is the ability to configure a system to my exact requirements (and budget!). I have looked at a range of vendors and the thing which always draws me back to PC specialist is the sheer variety of options available. The system configurator itself is easy enough to use and unlike some competitors, is laid out in an order I find most logical. The only small niggle is… Read Full Review
