“Great hardware, dodgy after sales.”

Written on: 31/08/2016 by waynedelderfield (1 review written)

I purchased an upgrade I5 Aurora, AMD RX480 graphics card and the additional 1 year warranty (2 after the call). Pros. Value for money. Fast build and delivery. Very well build PC, faultless. Nice stable overclock. Cons. DON’T ACCEPT CHANGES WHEN THEY CALL YOU! I ended up getting a hard sell over the phone, the upgraded RAM offered turned out to be a single stick so no duel channel memory (a big BIG no no). Turns out this RAM was in substitution for all the other stuff that should… Read Full Review

“Good Company”

Written on: 12/10/2015

New PC with the New Windows 10 changing over to 64 bit for the first time. As I am in my 70's I am not with current trends. The support team were brilliant and helped me through even as far as a re-install of the OS after I screwed it up. I now have a SSD for the system and mechanical HD for storage and the PC is incredibly fast. This is the second PC I have had from Palicomp my last was a Windows 7 PC 6 years ago. I would not go anywhere else… Read Full Review

“2 years later - still going strong”

Written on: 18/10/2014 by Bradley311 (1 review written)

I got my computer almost two years ago now and it's still working really well. Even compared to my housemates completely new computer, it's still quick at starting up and running programmes. I've never encountered a game that won't run properly with my graphics card and I've barely scratched the storage it has. The only thing I would say is that my fan was marketed as being very quiet when running, this is no longer the case. As far as I can remember, it was quiet when I first got it but now… Read Full Review

“A great PC, slightly iffy ordering experience.”

Written on: 11/10/2014 by Palicomp (1 review written)

I initially wanted to order my new PC online. So, as is normal these days, I opened an account on the website, although I did not immediately place an order. When I returned a few days later, the site refused to accept my log- in details. Eventually I gave up and phoned the customer service number, I asked them why I could not log in, and they didn't seem interested, basically just repeating that I should place an order over the phone. Of course I knew I could do that, but I would have liked to… Read Full Review

“Palicomp AMD Kaveri Evolution”

Written on: 14/08/2014

I bought this PC influenced by the good review in 'Computer Shopper' magazine which I've been buying since the Amstrad CPC6128 was cutting edge and which I have a high opinion of. I'm very happy with it. The only issue I remember when installing it was that the desktop was set not to fill the monitor screen - the result was wasted space and disappointing resolution. It didn't take long to sort that out, and I understand that Palicomp's FAQ now deals with that. The full-HD screen is VERY… Read Full Review

“Good service and value”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by Chacel500 (1 review written)

I have no complaints at all. Ordering was easy, delivery on time and both PC and monitor fast, quiet and so far reliable. Boot up time is particularly fast with the hybrid drive. I use the system for personal home use rather than gaming. My only issue is that it would have been good to have the option of a touch screen package to make best use of windows 8.1… Read Full Review

“Took a chance with Palicomp”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by 60plus (2 reviews written)

I was looking for a new desktop PC as I run Photoshop and Lightroom to produce large prints and digital images, and with my new Nikon camera the files were 100mb plus, I looked in the usual places and then found Palicomp online producing high spec custom units at less than the standard high street prices and after reading the reviews I took a chance and ordered the unit selecting the upgrades which suited my requirements, apart from a small order glitch which they soon sorted over the phone, it… Read Full Review

“mostly happy”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by manoj79 (1 review written)

bought a desktop from them-good product-so far(around 5 months since purchase)no major issues prompt delivery offered me a 5 year warranty instead of 3 as my order was >1000£. Wireless keyboard needs to be as close to the PC as a USB keyboard- as I was too lazy/impatient to send it back and wait for a replacement which they did promise in their offer,just got another one from a near by store. Overall I am satisfied… Read Full Review

“Good quality service”

Written on: 12/08/2014 by Snapchap (1 review written)

I needed a high end specification PC for photographic and video editing purposes. Palicomp had a decent spec base model and then with their modifications system, I beefed it up further (faster processor, more memory, better cooling etc). When some of the hardware could not physically fit together they telephoned and suitable alternatives were discussed and offered. The PC was built and delivered in a timely fashion and after a slight glitch with a faulty software driver which the support people… Read Full Review

Foxer50's Comment

Too right, I can't believe that these chumps have taken so long to fix my friend's computer. How hard can it be? These guys clearly don't know what is going on.

O999's Comment

Written on: 01/09/2014

Palicomp eventually helped me this problem.
They sent me replacement parts very quickly.
I thought that would be all but understanding the difficulty I had gone through they also sent me several new games to apologise for the confusion.
It's very nice when a company does that and treats you as a customer they care about. I will now be staying with them in future as a loyal customer.

“Carbon AMD TFT-22 System”

Written on: 16/12/2013 by 4teejay (1 review written)

I had a slight delay on the refund for a cable it was all sorted out to my satisfaction in the end.The computer system that I ordered Carbon AMD TFT22 System was very good, the monitor was perfect no dead pixels it was an acer monitor .I have built my own computers in the past and looking at it it was well put together with all the components that I specified.I was a bit doubtful about the look of the case from the picture ,but it is quite nice. So to sum up I am well pleased with the system… Read Full Review

“Palicomp Alpha Laser”

Written on: 30/09/2013

I spent some time reviewing potential replacement PCs, and settled for Palicomp's Alpha Laser based upon a Computer Shopper review. I added a few bits - TV card, Blu-Ray writer and a bigger PSU, and deleted some - screen and keyboard/mouse, from the standard spec to suit my needs. The PC was delivered promptly and provides good value. There were a few minor niggles - the TV card differed from that advertised (discontinued), and it's software picked up very few channels (fixed by downloading… Read Full Review

“Alpha Inferno Review”

Written on: 19/08/2013

I purchased this system in April after reading press reports. The web site was easy to use and I customized my machine with a better looking case and some quieter components. I also went for a high spec on RAM as I was looking for a fast gaming machine (funny that as I only play Quake 3 on line and old machine was still okay). I really wanted the option of Windows 7 and a SSD for fast boot ups. Placed order and waited. I was soon telephoned by the company, clearly with a view to up-selling me… Read Full Review

“Everything excellent except for salesman”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by ocpham (1 review written)

Positives: 1) PC was assembled and delivered faster than the quoted time 2) PC was delivered fully functional with no damage 2) PC performance is as expected 3) Quality of products is as expected Negatives: 1) Salesman who called me up after placing the online order tried to sell me some games (I purchased an AMD Radeon HD 7820 2Gb graphics card) but I found out that the games came complimentary from AMD anyway, but still he tried to sell it to me (feel that it was a bit dishonest and… Read Full Review

“Palicomp; online computer purchase”

Written on: 13/08/2013

I am an old age pensioner who is not very IT literate but a friend helped me choose a computer from Palicomp and with his help in setting it up I have been very happy with this purchase. The computer was well packed and having had a phone call earlier from the firm I knew I just needed to phone them if there was a problem. It would have been helpful to have a basic guide book enclosed with the purchase but all the information was on disc… Read Full Review

“Great Value”

Written on: 12/08/2013

My boys wanted new PCs - one of them did loads of research online and came up with PALICOMP. I phoned and ordered them and they arrived really quickly. Kids tell me they are really quick and they have not reported any problems. Couple of issues where they could improve - (1) There was a bit of a hard sell to try and persuade me to buy extended warranties ... as I bought two PCs it would have been nice if they had thrown in a RTB warranty for free. (2) My boys wanted to upgrade the… Read Full Review

“Good efficient service”

Written on: 12/08/2013 by benharding100 (1 review written)

I'm happy with the entire service from Palicomp. Really good computer for the price. Came quickly. Only two issues worth mentioning. (1) Found the website perhaps confusing as there's so much choice (though this really is a subjective thing). I was looking for a specific reviewed PC, which was easy enough using the site's search. However it was not easy to compare it with others at a similar price to see what the differences were. But not a big issue for me as I was always likely to go… Read Full Review
