“A Good Service”

Written on: 02/06/2015 by Selfcv438 (1 review written)

The first time that I have used PC Specialist, my previous bespoke builder having seemingly ceased trading. I really can't fault the on-line specification and buying process. The offer of ASUS motherboards was good for me, because I tend to ripple older machines down to Linux usage and have had good experiences with ASUS and Linux. The build standard looks fine (I design electronic equipment) and I have already recommended PC Specialist to others… Read Full Review

“Desktop PC from PC Specialist”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by gibbo437 (1 review written)

Very good service, my PC arrived in a reasonable amount of time (dispatched 12 working days after submitting the order) and was built to a high standard and it all seems to work very well. The website was very good as it told you if the components you selected would be compatible with each other, and also gave other good recommendations, such as which power supply would be suitable. My PC was carefully delivered with no damage and was well packaged to minimise the risk of breakages along the… Read Full Review

“Service with satisfaction”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by Johnrm401 (1 review written)

When I placed the order I was able to speak to an advisor who did not only understand my needs but was quite willing to guide me along and assist with any technical issues. I was informed of the work in progress along the way both by telephone and by email. I was able to ask questions and make adjustments during the building process. Nothing seemed to have been left to chance. When I received my laptop I was really anxious to get it up and running. I like it a lot. It is fast, efficient… Read Full Review

“Well priced and well advised”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by JovaniSandoval (1 review written)

I contacted PC Specialist with two things, 1. A PC requirement and 2. A budget. They got back to me within half a day with a computer way above the spec I requested and for a much cheaper price than was expected. I may have been able to acquire the exact computer I was after, but the downside to using PC specialist is the wait. But I can assure you that when you finally get your PC it will be well worth it, and the support that comes with it is top notch. If you need a laptop/PC that is… Read Full Review

“Simply Brilliant.”

Written on: 01/06/2015

Saw the advert in the TV and thought I'd have a look. The website is easy to use and so simply to comfigure a PC to your own spec. My PC was built and delivered in 11 days, and it is working lovely. Thanks for making it so easy. One lttle thing my PC was dispatched on a Friday, but because I didn't know this at the time of placing the order, I didn't pay for Saturday delivery and as it was a Bank Holiday weekend I had to wait a bit longer… Read Full Review

“She runs like a dream!”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by mcchieftan (1 review written)

Thank you for my fantastic laptop. I found your service to be excellent from start to finish. The online laptop customiser was very easy to use and I had no difficulty selected exactly the components I wanted. After purchase communication was fast and friendly. The laptop arrived 1 day early, despite international delivery. The latop itself is fantastic, better even than I had hoped. Good work guys! … Read Full Review

“Excellent product, even better service”

Written on: 01/06/2015

Excellent product options on website, with great prices even compared with buying individual components. Build quality was excellent. Everything came ready to go. Great service, was even able to adjust the order a few days after placement. Slightly longer lead times than originally advertised, so plan accordingly. Delivery was very good, and came extremely well packaged for transit… Read Full Review

“A closer-to-home alternative to Dell”

Written on: 01/06/2015

The delivery was so swift; the whole process took just under 5 working days from placing the order through the website to the delivery by DPD. I planned the whole process to take 7 working days in hope that it would be delivered during the school holidays. Just wow... The laptop itself, an Optimus IV/V though performs has exceeded my expectations by miles. The only disappointing thing about the website was the lack of RAM configurations. My son said that having two RAM modules work faster… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by Braiden412 (1 review written)

The website setup made specifying my system easy and the testing of the system prior to despatch was reassuring. Good selection of components with optins whcih werent all at the extreme end of the spectrum, with what looked like reasonale overheads on top. Clear explanation of the production stages, only issue would be that it took a while to change status, perhaps consider a 'parts picked and awaiting build' stage to provide a little more clarity. Perfectly happy with the system and… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist Cosmos III 15.6 inch Laptop”

Written on: 01/06/2015

Great laptop apart from a couple of issues regarding the keyboard and mouse pad. The build of the laptop is great and the array of customisations are great. I would have preferred being able to have a backlit keyboard so this could be sourced and offered. Also the keys are not the greatest and sometimes don't hit properly. The biggest problem is the poor quality of the mouse pad and the sheer size of it. When typing it is altogether too easy to hit the pad with your thumb and move the position… Read Full Review

“Excellent easy reliable”

Written on: 31/05/2015 by Baird402 (1 review written)

Didn't talk to any staff however that was because I had no problems with the ordering process and everything is explained well on the website. Once the order is placed you know exactly where your item is at and they give you an approximate time on how long it will take them before dispatch. Obviously it would be nicer to expect deliver a bit sooner but of course it is understandable as each device is basically custom made to how you would like it… Read Full Review

“Very happy customer”

Written on: 31/05/2015 by Moochkin (1 review written)

The entire process was easy to follow and customise your order as you wanted. I especially like how the internal tracking and explanation of where the computer is in its build stage and found myself checking it way more than I should have. Arrived in a large box with plenty of packaging , all in all extremely happy with the service and will definitely be using pc specialist again… Read Full Review

“Custom gaming pc”

Written on: 30/05/2015 by stvenska (1 review written)

From the outset it has been great. Choosing components was easy and any which weren't compatible were shown even if the power supply wasn't big enough or too big. I was able to save the config as a quote and then switch components around and save as another quote which I could print to compare. I did change the config a few times after searching for reviews on various websites. When I did purchase initially I was at pre-production for 13 days, It does state 1 week and an update during this time… Read Full Review

“Fast, efficient, quality”

Written on: 30/05/2015

We were recommended PC specialist by a friend who had previously bought a couple of laptops from them. The website is very user friendly and seeing an instant quote is a real plus! The site was very open about their usual service levels and we received our laptop with in 2 weeks. It came ready to work and it works a treat! I would strongly recommend PC specialist to a friend (and indeed, already have done). I shall be using them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/05/2015 by Lawrence213 (1 review written)

Can't thank PC Specialist enough, excellent service and product, and very helpful when I had a query regarding the delivery, as I changed the delivery date from originally asked for, overall a very pleasant buying experience from beginning to end. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this company to anyone looking for a quality computer, I'm glad I've found a reliable computer company, and will gladly buy again in the future. … Read Full Review

“Better than expected”

Written on: 30/05/2015 by 435McLean (1 review written)

I had low expectations of the service I would receive since I've not really used any online services for big purchases like this before, and this is really my first "big" buy of anything, so I was fully expecting to get the same level of support and quality as I would from other purchases on other websites, but I was pleasantly surprised when I had a free game with my PC, along with all the manuals and original notes needed to "Do it yourself" at home kindof thing, as well as added notes and… Read Full Review
