“Most highly recommended!!”

Written on: 29/01/2017

Good, solid build. Good attention to detail (e.g. power cables tied to the chassis properly). Excellent value for money. For anyone with the Asus H110M-R motherboard, I would recommend updating the firmware to the latest version available from the Asus website. There is a bug in the release firmware that can (rarely) allow the ethernet port to lock up. This can only be cleared by a full power off and power disconnect. I've seen this particular bug on several different mobos that share a… Read Full Review

“Hassle free quality”

Written on: 29/01/2017 by Smith307 (1 review written)

Only had the PC for a couple of weeks but it runs like a dream and have not identified any issues yet. The buid quality seems excellent and there has clearly been some care taken in the assembly and shipping process- sadly this is not always the case with other top-end manufacturers. However what has really impressed me was the ordering process. I was able to discuss my requirements with the salesman without any fear of hard- or over-selling (i even gave him the chance to but he wouldn't take… Read Full Review

“Great, fast service, shame about DPD”

Written on: 28/01/2017 by mute (1 review written)

Great service, my PC got here extremely rapidly. The machine is running great as well. I'd recommend pc specialist to anyone, but warn people about the DPD 'Pick up' option. As I'm not at home weekdays DPD gave me the option of picking it up at a nearby store which I thought was fantastic. However the store refused to accept the delivery (the parcel, which was just a 45cm high PC, was 'too large' apparently, even though the store is known for selling large items), and so I had to pay extra for… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2017 by Vargas283 (1 review written)

great website allows you to select various differing options whcih changes the price as you go. Ordered a PC on Monday and it was dispatched Friday that week and delivered Monday.

“Excellent service and happy with the result”

Written on: 25/01/2017 by BriceVargas389 (1 review written)

PC Specialist was very straightforward and easy to use from speccing the PC right through ordering and the email update service I received. It was very easy to set up and I was back up and running after a couple of hours. I had one small issue with the sound card but a quick call to the customer service team resolved this immediately. I would thoroughly recommend PC Specialist to anyone who wants a custom built PC. … Read Full Review

“Good overall experience”

Written on: 23/01/2017 by 1992Shields (1 review written)

The website was very easy to use. I already knew what I wanted and this was a good way for me to choose which parts I wanted in my pc. The product itself works very well and has been put together perfectly. Also it came within a week which was very helpful as I needed it as soon as possible. Overall good service and easy to use website, I will definitely be using it again in the future… Read Full Review

“Great product and great service ”

Written on: 23/01/2017 by GCostigan (1 review written)

I had never used PC Specialist before, and they were recommended to me by a family member. What's great is being able to get a laptop and pay for the bits you want but not the bits you don't. I found the website easy to navigate and also easy to add and subtract possible items, so I could quickly debate cost vs additional functionality. Once ordered, communication from PC Specialist on the build and delivery was also really clear. The laptop was delivered when they said it would be and it all… Read Full Review

“Great service, no hassle”

Written on: 23/01/2017 by BeckB91 (1 review written)

My previous laptop was giving up the ghost and after a number of family had purchased items from PCSpecialist and were happy it seemed the obvious choice. The ability to customise the build to specs to suit your needs was particularly useful. I also like that you don't have to have an operating system if you have your own so you're not limited to what's preloaded and not having to pay for something you don't want! We will be using PCSpecialist again in the future!… Read Full Review

Ordered a custom gaming laptop from pcspecialist. Great value for money, the laptop was delivered as per specification, a week after I ordered it. Well made, great value for money and fast service. Would recommend and I will be using pcspecialist when I order my next laptop. Great range of options and I like the fact that you can follow the build process online… Read Full Review

“An easy and effective PC building service”

Written on: 23/01/2017 by LeticiaBates (1 review written)

I was looking to build a PC for both gaming and work, although I have experience building them, I don't have the time at the moment. I decided to look at other ways of doing so and PC specialist was the way I decided to go. They work out a little more expensive than building it yourself but it comes with 3 years warranty, more than can be said for self built, and there is no hassle, just plug it in and go. I had made a small error too in my build but they were able to spot it and inform me… Read Full Review

“Quick and Good Product”

Written on: 21/01/2017

The website was very easy to use, with easy to understand drop down lists to choose parts, and a running total of the price so you can see how expensive or not different parts are. The ordering process was simple using a debit card for payment. I like that you can see what stage of manufacture your computer is in, and also who built and tested it. The final product is very good - the only possible criticism is the 'clickiness' of the track pad buttons. My computer was delivered earlier than I… Read Full Review

“Better than expected ”

Written on: 21/01/2017 by roryduncan (1 review written)

I didn't know what I was looking for when I browsed for a new computer. I posted what I wanted the pc to do in the online forum and someone helped me out within minutes detailing a spec that would suit my needs. After a few tweaks I ordered my pc, it was in my budget and I can confirm it does everything I need it to do, a decent all rounder made for processing video and playing games. The pc came within a week and was very well packaged. The setup was easy and the pc works brilliantly. Great… Read Full Review

“Top quality and quick ”

Written on: 21/01/2017 by Pearson140 (1 review written)

The ability and ease of customisation is great, I found the website very straightforward to use. I am really happy with the quality of the product and the build/delivery speed is much better than anything else I could see on the market. Great value for money and easy order systems. I like the warnings regarding operating system choice, I had not made a mistake but it was a good prompt to stop me and make me double check my selection. I do not know what the customer service is like as I had no… Read Full Review
