Fast and quick service got my product and was really happy about it
PC Specialist have provided a second-to-none service and I am exceptionally pleased with my new PC. I was particularly and pleasantly surprised by how quickly the machine was built and dispatched, having gone with the free delivery option with build time of 5-7 working days - I think mine was built in two days after order and dispatched on the third. I was also surprised that, when customising the build and proceeding to order, the website advised that I choose a cheaper power supply than the one I had selected, because the power supply I had chosen was nearly twice as much as the minimum calculated by the website; they could have easily let me buy the more expensive option but they didn't. The PC itself is superb and does exactly what I wanted. I had a teething issue that turned out to be my own fault, and the tech support was very swift and helpful, so I'm confident that should I ever have another issue with the PC, I can get the help required.
Fast service and delivered as promised
Very compact and powerful laptop
Have installed a few games and they run very smooth in HD
A first class service, I opted for a top of the range laptop and the build time was very fast and it was delivered within four days. Excellent service.
loved the service, quick, fast and a great laptop I now finally have the machine i always wanted
Very good experience, great value for money as your don't need to compromise the product you want, you get exactly what you wish.
Only downside was that when completing the inital payment it failed ( because of my bank account security) however when i tried to reapply the payment the discount code that i used wasn't included. I didnt want to make a fuss and find a way around this as it was £15 but it was a bit of a shame.
Very good experience with them, great value for money, get exactly what you need and more.
Only downside i had was when making the first payment that failed (because of my bank account) and when i tried to reapply the payment the discount was removed without me realising.
I wanted to get more into 3D graphics so I ordered a bespoke system from PC Specialist Ltd. They really should be called "Windows PC Specialist Ltd" because there is absolutely no support whatsoever for Linux users. However, the computer was built, tested and delivered more quickly than I had expected and the delivery driver was excellent, taking a lot of care not to cause any damage so overall I am happy.
I found Mint Linux had problems recognising and using the two graphics card, showing them as "unaccepted" in the graphics settings. I have now got Sabayon installed, which can recognise and use the two cards. I chose Xfce as the desktop. I now have a very quick computer which runs Blender very well. When running Sabayon as a live distro it wouldn't play DVDs but once it was installed, it installed libdvdcss as part of the package so Totem and VLC work perfectly without any further tweaks. The onboard audio is fine for my purposes as I wanted the machine for 3D modelling rather than gaming. I didn't bother buying a new keyboard or mouse as the ones I was already using suit me perfectly -- in fact my Microsoft optical mouse is still giving very good service even though it is well over ten years old (I wish their software was as reliable as their hardware!).
Overall, I would probably recommend PC Specialist Ltd because most people who ask me about computer issues don't know any different from Windows or Mac so the lack of support for other operating systems isn't likely to bother them.
I have been very pleased with my laptop so far.
The order process was easy to complete with good descriptions on each item available (Could do with some ratings next to components life GFX Card to give people an idea of how much better one is other the other could make it easier to see what spec you want).
From ordering to receiving the laptop took about 3-4 days I was very impressed as i was expecting to wait longer (Ordered at the end of Jan). The delivery of the laptop was quick and the company used kept you up to date with the progress all the way giving a day window to start and then txting the hour the laptop would arrive and it arrived within the hour stated.
It was very well boxed, it came in a very large outer box with large air pocket wrapping around the internal laptop box.
I ordered my laptop with no operating systems as I have a licence for windows from work but it came with a 30 day unregistered version of windows 7 installed for testing, which is good as it let me boot up and test the laptop was working and correct before having to install windows on.
I haven't found any fault with the laptop and am quite enjoying the 1080p screen it is amazing to program on as I have so much space, also very good for playing games.
I would defiantly recommend PC specialist to anyone looking for a new computer.
In my experience with this purchase everything went smooth and quick without any problems. Delivery done quickly, very well packaged.
Our overall experience of PC Specialist has been very positive from the assistance provided producing a spec of laptop to the communication provided throughout the build process. The product is pretty good as well!
The website was very easy to use and allowed you to pick and choose your parts for your pc. The website also very helpfully checked whether or not all of the parts you picked were compatible.
The pc did not take very long to arrive and the build quality was great. The website also provided a way to easily track where your pc was.
Lovely. I like that the emblem is removable if you would like to take it off, I lift my PC SPECIALIST logo on.
Excellent PC from PC specialist, and very smooth ordering process. Shopped around prior to ordering and found their pricing competitive. Very quick to deliver and packing was spot on. Also, the welcome pack contains all driver discs, parts, reference manual etc - sounds standard but felt this was a cut above compared to some other suppliers.
