“Georgeous PC”

Written on: 24/03/2015 by teesagreen (1 review written)

I was a bit worried about the service to begin with having never ordered something so customized from the internet before and i thought I wasn't hearing anything back for about a week which had me a bit worried but my advice to everyone.. Check your junk folder! Haha once i saw they were updating me through every step I was very relieved great service to supply the peace of mind… Read Full Review

“Another great experience with PC Specialist”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by Piperzx140 (1 review written)

My first experience with PC Specialist was in December last year, when I ordered a new laptop. It was a great experience, not the least because though at the time of ordering it was clearly stated that the machine would not arrive in time for Christmas, PC Specialist and DPD managed to deliver it on Christmas Eve - a very pleasant surprise! This time, I needed a new desktop machine, and, again, it was a great experience. A well-built machine, built well within the expected time, and delivered… Read Full Review

“Annoyingly long”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by Davidsonpg239 (1 review written)

The guidelines advised me that it was more than likely I'd receive the PC in 7 working days or less - took them 13. PC arrived and the courier didn't even lift it into my house leaving me with two slipped discs to somehow try and heave it in. The door doesn't close properly on the tower but I don't want to return it because of the inevitable huge amount of fuss it'll take - including repackaging which can only be done with the box (already thrown out as it was huge). Great machine and fairly… Read Full Review

“Takes time, but ultimately good”

Written on: 23/03/2015

This was my first purchase through the site. It was easy enough to build the laptop I ordered through the site, and the price was reasonable. It took 2 weeks between ordering and receiving the computer. There were several emails to saying what was happening during the process, so I didn't mind the wait. The delivery was easy to arrange. Unfortunately the keyboard wasn't attached properly (missing 2 screws to secure it), which meant that it rattled when typing, and could easily pop out. The… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service but....”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by jsquires (1 review written)

The ordering process was simple and I'd configured my machine in less than 10 minutes which was perfect. Communication was great for the most part. However, I had to speak to live chat to find out my order was missing components which was not ideal. While waiting for the GPU I noticed an offer where The Witcher 3 was included with all GTX GPUs. Naturally i enquirered since my card was not going to be arriving until the day after this offer started however I was told flat out no which was a… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2015 by xpompeyx (1 review written)

The website layout was easy to follow and the configurations page was easy to use, making designing a laptop a simple process. The support team got back to my emails much faster than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise and helped me out with my configuration. The delivery time was about what I expected which I was happy about. Now the machine I ordered is fantastic, runs like a dream and feels solid, easily the best computer I have ever used. I would strongly recommend PC Specialist to… Read Full Review

“Awesome Cosmos II custom build! ”

Written on: 22/03/2015 by janicemforier (1 review written)

I am overall extremely happy with PC Specialists service and my laptop! Their website is extremely easy to use and PC Specialist keep you informed on the process of your order through e-mail. The delivery and bulding/processing time of the unit was within the time frame that I would expect from such a service. for the overall quality of the laptop, I would rate it 4 out of 5. The only thing that I am unhappy with is the sound on the laptop, and if this was rectified, I would rate it 5 stars!… Read Full Review

“Exceeded my expectations”

Written on: 21/03/2015 by Bri-W (1 review written)

I wanted to avoid the "usual" brands and spec a laptop to my design, I wanted something fast and powerful enough to run a few basic games. I found pcspecialist in google and decided on the biggest screen and lowest spec as a starting point. Selected an i7 processor, 2gb graphics card, 8gb of ram and the upgraded backlit keyboard along with windows 8, this came to a shade over £700 and was well within my budget, ordering process was seamless, build time and delivery was excellent and I'm more… Read Full Review

“great service and business”

Written on: 21/03/2015 by p-k-y (1 review written)

Great service and high quality products. The company kept in touch with me at every stage and all their estimates were spot on. Only issue is that their emails were picked up by default as spam by my hotmail account and took me a day or two notice. Product arrived and was just as described. As an added bonus they use a courier service which let you pick a time it is going to be delivered/tells you within an hour when your package is to be delivered… Read Full Review

“Slow but sure”

Written on: 20/03/2015 by conski101 (1 review written)

From order date to delivery date is a bit long but once I got my laptop I have no problems at all. In fact I have had no need to contact customer support..fingers crossed. Build quality could be better concerning plastic but quiet as the cemetery, and cool. All in all I will not fault pcs but get that build case thing sorted. No problems with delivery at all. However I think they made my lappy rattle… Read Full Review

“Fine so far”

Written on: 20/03/2015 by timwtimw (1 review written)

Great website for customising a build, with a comprehensive compatibility checker. Took a while to build but that is expected for a to order rather than off the shelf item. Only niggles were that Windows key is not already entered, the sticker is at the back and I'd put the PC in place and plugged everything in before I realised; and that Firefox wasn't already installed despite selecting on the build screen. Obviously these are very minor problems. The PC itself seems to work fine. Great… Read Full Review

“Best for customisation”

Written on: 20/03/2015 by andrewduerden (1 review written)

I was looking for a company that would build a PC to my own specification. In the past I have bought from Dell but they no longer offer any customisation options. With PC specialist you are able to choose from a wide range of components and instantly see what its going to cost. Every aspect of the PC can be changed to suit individual requirements with info provided about every component. I liked the way that, at the end of the selection process, the site informed me that the maximum power… Read Full Review

Did exactly what they said on the box, very pleased with my machine..delivered on time and works well 2 small gripes... no backlit keyboard, so working in low light conditions is difficult. Obviously since every machine is different weight is a calculation but an estimate would have been handy… Read Full Review
