“Fab Service in time for Xmas, but watch for updates”

Written on: 18/12/2017 by Jegta (1 review written)

Very good service and built in time. Options on the build site were very clear and no hidden surprised. My only criticism would be that once we received the pc there was a huge amount of updates from Windows that needed to be installed. It took nearly a day to do them despite having over 50mb Broadband on an Ethernet cable. I'm pleased I checked this first, as it is a Christmas present and my son would not have been able to play with it all day on Xmas… Read Full Review

“Good value and great customisation possible”

Written on: 18/12/2017 by Konnorp479 (1 review written)

I was looking to replace an old laptop which was showing its age years ago, but was brought back to life when I learned about Linux and its lightweight possibilities. Not having a lot of money to spend on a replacement machine, I assumed I would be limited to old refurbished machines, with low-end specs and and an unknown lifetime. Even then, many retailers will only sell a machine with an OS installed, something I don't want to use, much less pay for. PCS were able to let me customise my… Read Full Review

“Great selection of components”

Written on: 17/12/2017 by Lillianam427 (1 review written)

I really like my purchase because I had the opportunity to buy the components which I wanted for a better price. And in addition the assembling and testing service were good. The only thing that I would change would be to have more possibilities to choose different components, not only 2 or 3 per category… Read Full Review

“Not the easiest of experiences”

Written on: 17/12/2017 by Aleah14 (1 review written)

Well, a struggle to really review this company - the webiste is a bit of a hot mess to navigate, and I got repeatedly frustrated by the "7 day then delete it" bespoke build quotes - fair enough, I get that prices change, but at least give us the option to take a previous design and with one click get it requoted! Overall, prices feel a little high, but others (more expert than I) indicated the build quality good so I thought I'd give it a go. Decent (automated) messages during the build… Read Full Review

“Great service”

Written on: 17/12/2017 by JT_HTID (1 review written)

Top notch service! As a noob in the pc world I took the advise of friends and professional advice of magazines which recommended the company and build I chose. Whole process was smooth and without hiccup. Build and dispatch time felt long however as a new pc owner this maybe common and made worse by my excitement. Would certainly recommend for anyone looking for a new pc. … Read Full Review

I would like to compliment the team on the courteous service and knowledge provided in assisting me with my purchase! I found the website very easy to use in deciding on the various options. From ordering to dispatch was well within the quoted timescale, considering the proximity to Christmas! The packaging was one of the best I have experienced. Congratulations to the team at pcspecialist for an A1 service!… Read Full Review

“All seems to be working fine so far.”

Written on: 16/12/2017 by 329Rafferty (1 review written)

The only reason I am not giving 5 Stars is because I have ordered my custom tower with LED stripes, the stripes were not properly connected to each other in the first place, so it arrived disconnected. It was quite hard to connect it back again. I have some computer knowledge, but I imagine this could have been really annoying if it was someone without any knowledge to receive it. I would suggest that you give a bit more room to it, instead of placing it so tight in the case. Apart from that… Read Full Review

“High quality products with quick build times”

Written on: 16/12/2017

Product arrived at the time specified and has worked impeccably, customer service was fantastic and was kept up to date throughout the process. The website itself was extremely well layed out and easy to use with drop down menus providing me with the best customisation options. One thing that perhaps could have been improved was that I received little advice in the way of drivers and which would be installed already and which ones I would need to download myself, however if I had asked I’m… Read Full Review

Bought my first laptop from these guys and I will be buying my next one too. Absolutely over the moon with it. It's doing exactly what I need it to do and it isn't struggling at all. I can switch it on and be on Google within 20 seconds so I'm not waiting around on loading times. Would recommend them to anyone I know… Read Full Review

“A quick and effective service”

Written on: 15/12/2017 by Dukebadham (1 review written)

I received my order packaged securely and it arrived very quickly, I did pay for the extra fast track option and received my PC within a few days, all fit together with no major faults. My only major complaint is that the PCI-E card could not get a good or stable connection to my router despite my numerous other devices having no issue. so I purchased an external adapter and that issue has been resolved. Now if only I had remembered to buy speakers… Read Full Review

“Great quality, reasonable price”

Written on: 14/12/2017 by thegrop (1 review written)

Really happy with my purchase : Intel based workstation for 3D modelling/animation and 2D compositing. I haven't had it for a long time, but haven't had any issues with it until now, really happy with the overall quality. I had compared with other website, to get the exact same pieces (or equivalent) and build it myself, and the price was roughly the same (£20 ish) - So, great price ! Really happy in general !… Read Full Review
