“Great”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by ChrisEvos (1 review written)

Purchased a laptop for school work and so far it is working great I'm glad that no software is installed on the laptop and it's just a pure fresh install of windows 8. Came eariler than I expected especially since it was coming close to christmas (9th of December) and I needed it on the 19th I did notice that the first boot did take longer than expected but that was the first boot to installing windows so I guess it's meant to take a while. I'm also glad that I get a Windows DVD included unlike… Read Full Review

“Great service again”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Russell24 (1 review written)

This is the second laptop I have bought from PC Specialist. I was very happy with the first one, and I wasn't disappointed with this latest purchase. The website is very clear and easy to use, and whilst the laptop was being built I received regular email updates on progress. I think I had to wait around a week for the build and test and for the machine to be dispatched. When it was shipped I received emails and texts, the last one giving me an hour window of when the laptop would arrive… Read Full Review

“Great Service”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by JabariPike326 (1 review written)

The website is easy to use allowing you to customise the PC any way you want. Also it's easy to make changes after you have placed the order if you changed your mind about anything. Communication is good. You are always kept informed of the status of the order throughout the process from placing the order through building the PC to delivery. Components used and high quality name brand parts. The price is good too… Read Full Review

“Virtual Machine Host”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Milney555555 (1 review written)

Build a bit of a tanky machine as I have been running multiple virtual machines including database servers so I wanted a snappy and high capacity build. Have ordered last 4 computers from PC Specialist and as usual everything was perfect. I have built a lot of my own computers but when spending this much wanted to know everything was done expertly and I was not disappointed. Slightly longer delivery this time than usual - but it is right before Christmas, so to be expected and good to know the… Read Full Review

“Review of Service”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Bailey48 (1 review written)

Although you have always supplied a great product and always kept me in the loop regarding how my order is proceeding I thick your component suppliers are letting you down. I have ordered goods from you twice and on both occasions the shipment was delayed by your component suppliers have let you down and the building of my order has been shelved until stocks of certain components have been replenished. Having said that, once that occurred, the completion of shipment/ delivery was very quick… Read Full Review

“Laptop ordered for Christmas delivery”

Written on: 19/12/2014 by tomeesh (1 review written)

I ordered a laptop very late in the hope that pc specialist could delIver in time. They did just that as they promised! I've used pc specialist multiple times and every time the quality has been superb, of coure parts and build quality is very good, but even details like packing are not overlooked. I would most definitely suggest my friends use them and personally they are my goto computer company… Read Full Review

“Here is some feedback my SkyFire 3 laptop: The outer...”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by Lindsey295 (1 review written)

Here is some feedback my SkyFire 3 laptop: The outer packaging box had a number of small dents/holes, but the inner packaging and product was good. It was delivered by DPD. On power up the BIOS was set to network boot, which consequently opened the bios screen. It took a little while to work this out, and fix to get it to start Windows. Less technical customers may struggle with this, and I suggest doing a non-network boot should be part of your process. I only performed a start-up test, but… Read Full Review

“Quality for Money”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by areeb.javed (1 review written)

I think PC specialist are an excellent organization. The very fact that you can pick your own chassis, and configure your laptop for your own particular need, is the selling point. The processors and the products they use are new and up to the mark. the laptop comes without any pre-loaded company software which we rarely use (Lenovo, Acer, Asus, dell. each one of them have a lot of pre-loaded useless apps) They keep in touch through-out the laptop building process, updating you regularly on… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, nice laptop ”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by Cleveland331 (1 review written)

The PC specialist website is brilliant. You can customise pretty much every aspect of your machine. I went for a 17" Optimus series laptop with i7 2.5ghz, 16gb RAM and a 500gb SSD. So far it has run everything I have installed with ease. I didn't set out to build a games machine, I just wanted a laptop that would still be going strong in 5 years time but I think I could probably play just about anything on it. The touchpad could be bigger but as I use a separate keyboard and mouse anyway it is… Read Full Review

“HORRENDOUS!”

Written on: 17/12/2014 by JohnDavis2504 (1 review written)

I initially bought a desktop to act as a server. Got good service. I then decided to buy a laptop for my daughter for Christmas. The price I was given and charged was about £313 for a relatively low spec item. Seemed reasonable and checked with a mate in IT. BUT after receiving confirmation of the order, being charged for the item and then being sent a "it's built" note, I was then called up and told that they got the price wrong and I should pay another £70-odd if I want the laptop!!! I… Read Full Review

“27 Laptops”

Written on: 17/12/2014 by TristinHaynes (1 review written)

Over the last 6 months we have bought 27 laptops from PC Specialist, all delivered ahead of schedule. In fact the only problem we have had was when one of our users dropped a brick on one a week after he had been issued it! Despite the fact that due to a misunderstanding we hadn't taken out the insurance offered, PC Specialist replaced the damaged screen free of charge!… Read Full Review

Overall I was very happy with the service from pcspecialist. Despite having accidentally ordered incompatible memory modules for my motherboard, their customer service team were able to quickly recommend me a suitable alternative during the building process. The total time from the order being placed to my computer being dispatched was a very reasonable 11 days. … Read Full Review

“Quick, well made PCs”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by PCenthusiast (1 review written)

I liked the design of the website as it was easy to use and navigate, and thus designing the Pc was a breeze. The PC came well packaged and came with all the peripherals I ordered. There was nothing that I disliked about PcSpecialist. The build quality of the PC was very good as it had good cable management and it all looked neat and well built. Overall I am very happy with PcSpecialist and I will happily come back to them or recommended a friend to them… Read Full Review
