“PCSpecialists Review”

Written on: 11/12/2017 by ExHyper (1 review written)

I was overall happy with the service in the end but I was actually displeased with the delivery service, spent a lot of money on the pc and they didn’t ask my name or any identification of any sort when delivering to my address, it’s good I received it and no one else but around my area there are many houses with the same address only differences being is A. B. C. And so fourth at the end of the number, I did have few issues with the Ethernet driver but few emails later with a friendly guy… Read Full Review

“Custom-built Optimus VII”

Written on: 30/11/2017 by battlemedic (1 review written)

I recieved the device promptly, far earlier than I actually expected (I always assume custom-built laptops should take far longer than normal) but it was only 10(ish) days after ordering that I recieved the iteme, working fine and in perfect order. It's sleek enough to carry easily, along with a great Control Center for optimizing how I use it, it's performance options are a bit fiddly, but once you get the hang of it the thing runs great. For the price I was incredibly happy, having upgraded… Read Full Review

“Very good value, very good service”

Written on: 26/11/2017 by jonathansifleet (1 review written)

I ordered the lowest spec notepad as I only intend to do light work, e.g. internet browsing, and using Microsoft office. However, I replaced the hard drive with an SSD I already had, and now have a blazing fast notepad that does everything I want. I was even surprised to see that it could run TES IV: Oblivion. The laptop was estimated to be between 7 and 12 days, but in fact, came on the 7th day. I am thoroughly satisfied with the laptop. Unfortunately, the build quality is not amazing but it… Read Full Review

“Without OS should mean without OS.”

Written on: 26/11/2017 by MZK. (1 review written)

Simple to configure the order but slightly tedious to have to type everything again after selecting a different e-mail address to use. Daily progress reports and suggestions to check progress online seemed superfluous. Arrived promptly and then instead of booting from a DVD I got stuck with Cortana demanding acceptance of Microsoft terms and conditions, saying 'you can say no but then, you know, no windows...'. The documentation explained about use of F2 and F7, but there did not seem to be any… Read Full Review

“Excellent Machine, Good price. Slow build but quick...”

Written on: 23/11/2017

Good website, easy to use and make choices. One of only a handful of sites offering the latest hardware releases, and for the best prices. The process was clear, the price great in comparison with the competition and the machine i've now got is excellent. The build took a long time. as the 'average' came and went without update I rang the helpline. Staff were friendly and gave me a useful update and apology - but I had to ring first. In the end I had to wait a bit longer than i'd have liked… Read Full Review

“Enigma IV Review: ”

Written on: 22/11/2017 by OdinRamos (1 review written)

I wanted to get a new laptop that was thin, light, easily carriable and well performing. I ordered an Enigma IV and I got exactly what I wanted. The alluminium design is sharp and smart and it feels amazing to the touch. The 7th generation i5 intel processor and the 8gb ram make the machine very well performing. I also love the fanless design: the machine doesn't make any noise! Negative sides: the speakers are pretty bad, but that's what you get with such a thin case. When showing a black… Read Full Review

“Very good service”

Written on: 18/11/2017 by CJPW (1 review written)

I like that I can choose to install my own operating system and not pay extra for windows. I also like the standard 3 year warranty which is rare these days. The website and service you receive is close to the Amazon level of automation and features. The main issue is they can't compete on price with the other major manufacturers, and some of the hardware is quite weak in comparison. It also takes much longer to receive the product which can be good or bad… Read Full Review

“Very good but have been better”

Written on: 13/11/2017 by Micaela184 (1 review written)

overall I am happy with the system I purchased, but as person used to buying shop bought PC's I was a little disappointed with a couple of things, first the cable management was not the best. The cable to the 8 pin connection on the motherboard at the top left is routed across the front of the motherboard, I am sure this could have been routed behind the motherboard. Also I never got a dvd player in the system and had to buy an external one to install the graphics drivers etc, my mistake I am… Read Full Review

“Great quality product at great price”

Written on: 13/11/2017 by Samara461 (1 review written)

I ordered the enigma viii the laptop was great price and once I received it I can say it is great quality as well. The only reason I have not given the overall experience 5 stars is due to the process of building and shipping taking longer than I had anticipated. But the delivery company used was great as well… Read Full Review

“Good value, great service ”

Written on: 08/11/2017

I got my last laptop of PC Specialist a few years ago and was happy then too. They offered the best value for what I wanted, my new laptop has been made and was delivered very quickly. I would say at the time I ordered the graphics card I wanted (gtx 1070) was out of stock and I was advised it wouldn’t be back in for a month and a half, which was a disappointing… Read Full Review

“14" Defiance Gamedev Archvis”

Written on: 06/11/2017 by TheScannerDarkly (1 review written)

I purchased this laptop primarily for game development and architectural visualisation, often while on the train. My configuration had the standard I 7700hq and 1050ti, along with 12gb of ram and a 500gb Samsung ssd. I also purchased the 5 working day dispatch. Pros: Perfect size for mobility Great power for performance heavy tasks Good temperature control Incredibly fast dispatch, even faster than I paid for Cons: Battery life, around or less than 2 hours using a program like UE4 or 3DSMax A… Read Full Review

“Positive experience”

Written on: 05/11/2017

Very very positive experience overall with PC Specialist. From very beginning till the end. Only thing that could be better is cable management, under PSU cover of the case everything is messed up and couple of zip ties could sort this mess out. But everything else 5 star. Thank you PC Specialist… Read Full Review
