“Great Build Quality - Packing for Shipping is excellent ”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by Bruceex200 (1 review written)

I was recommended PCS by a friend, I normally build my own PC's but the cost difference between components and a PCS build was minimal. I paid for a three day build, and it was finished in two!! Shipped by DPD, who are very good with their delivery slots. I couldn't fault anything, other than a few (minor) selection issues on the web, that a phone call to the helpful call centre cleared up. … Read Full Review

“Gaming pc”

Written on: 18/09/2017 by Farukhossain97 (1 review written)

Good quality and very fast service, all of the pieces were positioned nicely and the computer looks amazing, and also there are lots of useful cables. I've received my computer in 6 days. There weren't any problems with my desktop pc, they've build it perfectly without any error, all the products are very good but some of them seems to be like to expensive than other markets, but overall the service and the product are alright. Before buying it i have talked to one of their live chat's staff… Read Full Review

“Monster Render Success ”

Written on: 17/09/2017 by Darren320 (1 review written)

I'm really happy with the service, the order came very quickly and was professional, the guys there know what they were doing. For the price, i would've expected some sort of custom manual instead of vague one, ideally i would've liked to know more about the cable management and what bios settings they put in place. The custom pc specialist boot up screen is very long and i'm sure is an easy fix but does slow the computer down 10 seconds at start up. Overall the computer runs very well, very… Read Full Review

“Very impressive all around service”

Written on: 16/09/2017 by Hayes388 (1 review written)

My order came earlier than expected, however I was notified about important details of my order so I could see that it is coming early well ahead of time. When my order was dispatched the courier service that was chosen was great and I couldn't ask for a better courier, I was notified via email and text on the day my order will arrive. The packaging that came with my order was clearly premium and was well thought out, ensuring my order came intact. The overall service of my order was… Read Full Review

“It was here faster than I thought possible”

Written on: 16/09/2017 by martijnronday (1 review written)

I ordered a custom laptop with all the goodies I wanted after extensive research online. The few questions I had left were answered by the pc specialist team within no time to my satisfaction. The ordering process went smooth and within no time I had my laptop up and running at home. It even arrived at my house in the Netherlands 'all the way' from England before an order I from another city in Holland. I can recommend everyone who wants to order a custom laptop to the PC Specialists. Martijn… Read Full Review

“Best purchase I've ever made”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by JulioBarnett (1 review written)

I had to help a friend to find a laptop. After searching on the internet for a decent laptop, with the specs he needed and at a decent price, I gave up searching for the usual brands, so I decided to search for a site where I could customize one. And that's how I got to know pcspecialist. Awesome and functional site, great value for money and wide range of customization, with the possibility to not put an OS, which made me save even more money, to get the performance needed at the perfect… Read Full Review

“Great Service! ”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by DannyJJJones (1 review written)

Easy to use website with clear and concise information & specification recommendations. Swift checkout and I took up the 3 day fast build option which was met. I used the customer service portal once to check my address details and the query was answered very quickly. The actual PC is well built, the cabling is neat and tidy and is as to my specifications, I am really enjoying using it for work use… Read Full Review

“Amazing service”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by Swiss1987 (1 review written)

Built a custom top end machine which arrived promptly after ordering as I paid the extra for 3 day dispatch. It took 4 days before dispatch. But packaging was amazing and everything worked. So far so good with the computer itself. Had a few issues with fan speeds which I solved and a little calibration was needed for the Aoc Agon 144hz 27 inch monitor. The case was the corsair crystal series which is fantastic and just the right size I was hoping for. I went for an Intel i7 7700k 4.2. 16 gb… Read Full Review

“good machine, good price, good service”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by aiMaher445 (1 review written)

The machine matches all expectations and I believe I paid a fair price. The build time was right on schedule and I know from previous experience the quality components will be very reliable. Had problems ordering through the website as some features did not work as intended, so had to revert to a telephone call to complete the order, but the salesperson was cheery and very helpful. However, still awaiting the Windows 10 CD that was out of stock… Read Full Review

“Wanted to change something, but couldn't easily. This...”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by vlekje513 (1 review written)

Wanted to change something, but couldn't easily. This wouldn't be a problem usually but it was for me. Nothing to worry about for you, unless you can't cancel orders and repurchase them easily. This service saves money because you can select the version without windows included on it… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/09/2017

I need to clarify this since the title really makes this thing seems like a big deal.
I was unable to cancel my order and I needed my laptop immediately. I was unable to repurchase for a reason beyond their ability and beyond mine. Not anyone's fault, just a bit bothering that I couldn't do it via support at the time.

It's a pretty good site overall. You would probably have little problems with it if you used it like any normal person would. In my case it wasn't normal.

“Best PC Purchasing Site!”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by Danolio (1 review written)

Ordered a brand new PC from PC Specialist from the first time and was a little nervous as it was a lot of money spent for me. Managed to find a PC I liked very quickly and came with many many MANY customization options. Found multiple choices for my PC around cooling options (which was a large problem with my previous PC) and now I can barely even hear the built in fans which is fantastic. Also works brilliantly around all features I need with my PC, running all and everything program perfectly… Read Full Review

“Feels like I build it myself”

Written on: 13/09/2017 by Huyb (2 reviews written)

Looking for a laptop, I found that most available laptops are very categorized. You want a nice video card? Fine, but we'll give you a flashy body with it. High end cpu for virtualization? Sure, but then you're obliged to get this specific SSD with it. What I was looking for was the option to choose just what I need. PCSpecialist offers just that. From the cpu to the video card to the type of harddrive: pick what you like and they'll assemble it for you. I was even more impressed with the… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with my new PC”

Written on: 13/09/2017 by Saulelijah (1 review written)

I paid for a fast build and they didn't disappoint, nice choice of cases and good options to choose from to set up and build your own PC. I've never had the confidence to actually build my own system, this is something for the future. But failing my own building I would always go to PC Specialist. I am very happy with my case choice and all the options I had at the hardware were very helpful. The price is good and I would now never look at a pre built system. PC Specialist are my go to people… Read Full Review

“Superb service and quality product”

Written on: 11/09/2017 by 441King (1 review written)

Rather than buying off the shelf computer I decided to use PCS to build computer to my specifications. The ordering process was very easy. Once ordered I was then kept informed through the whole build and transportation of the system. It was very well packaged and delivered in the specified timeline. Computer was very easy to setup and is everything I wanted. Would highly recommend using PCS and build computer to your specifications rather than buying from the high street… Read Full Review

Ordering the pc was smooth and customer service advice was great from PC Specialist too, changed my order a couple of times due to my own requirements however was advised changing the CPU cooler to a better one especially for overclocking which I had prompted the question "is there anything I should change due to the parts I've ordered not being enough" so pleased with the advice given in regards to CPU Cooler. Took a while getting the code for Destiny 2, taking multiple calls, time and money… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2017 by Gorman73 (1 review written)

PC Specialist are a superb company in whom provided me with a great service in both the building and manufacturing process and in the delivery process. I was able to pick and choose between parts in each area of the PC and was offered a wide variety of different components which could offer different specifications for varying prices. PC Specialist further provided me with services that would mean I could receive my PC earlier for a small fee and in this area PC Specialist delivered to a great… Read Full Review
