“Happy Customer”

Written on: 25/10/2014 by qqMcGee324 (1 review written)

Ordered a custom desktop pc for my business. I was advised and what would be best suitable for my needs, the only downside is live chat response time on their website is really slow. But once connected i was helped out well. Build and delivery was surprisingly quick, received my pc about 2 weeks after the order date. I am happy and would order from again. Thanks… Read Full Review

“Well built, high quality laptop.”

Written on: 25/10/2014

I recently ordered the Skyfire IV laptop from PCSpecialist based off the MSI GE40 Barebone. The laptop itself is very light and portable; an essential requirement for me as I move around a lot as a student. The 1600x900 resolution on the 14" display is excellent and I would say it is a noticeable upgrade from the standard 1366x768 setup you see on most branded laptops in a similar price range. Speaking of the price, I paid short of £600 for mine. I upgraded the drive to a Samsung 840 EVO SSD… Read Full Review

“First time high-spec custom laptop order”

Written on: 25/10/2014 by kierancdr (1 review written)

I'm a resonable 'techie' but for some reason have never owned a laptop. I new a few websites and tried some custom builds on some other websites which were ok. I then sought a friends advice who showed me this site. I must say, I'm extremely impressed. Ease of use 10/10. Also normally I'm not a fan of websites trying to sell you other items whilst your trying to sought out what you want, but this site presented other things in a non-in-you-face-way which I appreciated and actually led to me… Read Full Review

“Great laptop, well worth the wait”

Written on: 25/10/2014 by ragga63 (1 review written)

Having decided to retire my ageing laptop I went online to check my options, and after considerable research chose PC Specialist. I was interested in a gaming laptop that could double as an everyday workhorse, so to speak. Most laptops available online are a compromise. What I liked about PC Specialist was the online configurator. It allowed me to choose what components were installed, and then checked for any compatibility issues. Payment options were very reasonable too. The only minor… Read Full Review

“A fantastic laptop, great build quality and performance”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by AlexanderJohnHenryBell (1 review written)

Upon my order taking over the expected dispatch time, PC Specialist offered to update me whenever there was a change to my order status. They were incredibly helpful in letting me know what was happening about what time, and delivered a fantastic laptop of excellent quality to my door. I could not recommend them enough and will definitely encourage friends to buy from them in the future as I know that I certainly will be doing so. The machine was also very well packaged which is very important… Read Full Review

“PC Specialist easy as pie”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by azda1988 (1 review written)

using pc specialist couldnt be easier i think the hardest part is waiting for your stuff to arrive. but cant rush these things and was fully worth the wait. computer has been great from start software all set up and ready to go from the push of the power button. 1 thing that i did not realise when i got the pc was that i needed a mini-hdmi to standard hdmi output to connect my pc to a device. but after spending £60 on a cable it works fine. to then find out that the you can get this cable for… Read Full Review

Buying a new pc for a specific purpose can be very daunting, but after a few minutes exploring PC specialist websit it Actually became enjoyable, thanks to the very clever design of the site. After choosing the pc that I wanted I was very impressed with the communication via email that detailed the whole process from building, testing, right through to when I could expect delivery. The PC was packaged extremely well and has performed admirably since I first switched it on! Well done PC… Read Full Review

“Great computer”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by Rose1956 (1 review written)

The wait is a little bit too long. Some of the update through mail is a little bit weird. Got quite a few email notifying me about the unavailability of my desktop case, but the time keeps changing. Would be great if the time can be confirmed and just a single email was sent for that purpose. However, once the computer arrives, All the things I didn't like just disappear. Great computer. No regret in buying the computer… Read Full Review

“Good computer but slow dispatch”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by 320Morales (1 review written)

The laptop its self is very good and well built. However it was nearly a month before the laptop had even begun being built. I was told this was down to the 'back to school rush' which I understand but it would have been nice to know it would have taken longer at the time of ordering. Once it had started being built the process dispatchband delivery was very quick. I would reccomend the service but realise it may take a while… Read Full Review

“Laptop for architecture student ”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by FinleyRalston445 (1 review written)

I'm doing my masters in architecture currently so needed a laptop that could keep up with the relentless hours of running autocad, 3ds and Adobe suites. The machine seems great, loads unbelievably fast compared to my precious Hp pavillion. The thicker laptop chasey is bulkier and not as pretty as Macs or other branded pc's but it's vital when it comes to cooling which was huge issue with the Hp I had. I do also have a laptop cooling stand which is good investment. People will argue that a… Read Full Review

“Not a bad machine in the end but can do much better...”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by dragonloup (1 review written)

I have received my Optimus 13.3 order 722052 on the 18th of October. It took 1 month to built (or 18 working days ) When I first started using it I was two mind about it. I acknowledge it is a small frame laptop but I had higher expectation from a specification point of view 1. the case does not look really sturdy . I guess only time will tell . The edges are a bit rough and would welcome a smoother design . The touchpad button is a bit weak to my taste. It feels like we are going to go… Read Full Review

“Almost too good to be true!”

Written on: 23/10/2014 by shrus001 (1 review written)

I recey realised I needed a new laptop but didn't have enough money to buy a great one out right. I wanted to buy one on finance but through a company that specialises in computers rather than these companies that do all sorts of products (such as Littlewoods). I came across Pc Specialists and I thought I'd check them out. I was first impressed with the fact that I could practically build my own laptop and then I was impressed how flexiable the financing options were. It was a no-brainer… Read Full Review

“Good product, reasonable wait time and good communication”

Written on: 23/10/2014 by timfontana (1 review written)

Ordered a laptop Girlfriend as she has long wanted to be able to play games on Steam and Origin with my friends and I. The company had a large backlog of orders at the time of my order, meaning that there was a delay of about 1-2 weeks. I was immediately informed of this, however, and customer service reps did all they could in order to speed up the orders, I was informed that at one point they were working evenings and weekends to alleviate the backlog. The customisation options were… Read Full Review

“High Quality Laptop”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by Eve27 (1 review written)

I purchased a 15.6" Cosmos II laptop with an i5, 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive for general use and light gaming. The laptop works great for everything I use it, the laptop runs all the games I have tried at high graphics levels, examples include League of Legends, Dragon Age: Origins, Hearthstone and Portal 2. Granted if you want to run bigger, better games this is not the laptop for you but it is perfect for general use and casual gaming. Cannot fault the laptop. Delivery took a bit longer… Read Full Review

I bought a PC for my son as his old 1 died. We were recommended by a friend who had already purchased a PC from them. The site is so easy to use even for me and I'm useless on computers! We set about building my son his PC and the water cooler he wanted wasn't in stock so we just swapped to another model.all phone communication was great the staff were always polite and very helpful and delivery was prompt.

“The best way to buy a PC”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by McLain1994 (1 review written)

A great way way to buy a PC as it allows you to choose your own configuration from a huge choice of components. They kept me fully updated with the build, test and delivery details and when it arrived (albeit left outside the back door), the PC has met my expectations. Altogether a very good service. I just hope that if there are any future problems, that these will be dealt with, as efficiently… Read Full Review
