      in conclusion pc specialist are AWESOME ..

      Where do we start with pc specialist?! .. My first visit to pc specialist was very pleasing .. to navigate the web page was very easy and straight forward and to custom build your order own pc online I actully thought was fun .. not know bout pc''s very much anyway it was cool to read what each part does and specs of each individual product .. So once id built it I decided to but an order in .. this was also very easy as would ordering anything off the internet can be .. Once ordered you just need to sit back and wait .. I really think its a good idea that everytme my pc went to a differnt stage of development I was notified of its progress .. This was awesome and made me feel even more excited :D .. Just over a week passed and it had been dispatched and delieverd .. The package and delivery was spot on .. Now im enjoying my new pc :D ..

      Advantages

      • "General attention to detail"
      • "Fantastic delivery times"
      • "Easy to use website"

      Disadvantages

      Fantastic service and a surprisingly impressive machine that's both portable and attractive.

      Had the laptop 10 days now and I have had next-to-no problems with it. I did have (and still have) a slight issue in that windows takes up a strangely huge amount of space for a clean install (~40gb), but that should only matter if you''ve skimped on memory like me. Either way this is a fantastic machine, surprisingly light and packing an absolute punch for the price. I chose the Maxwell 860m GPU and I forsee having absolutely no problems with temperature or running the games I want to run- side note, the battery is surprisingly good considering how intensively I have already used the machine. I have been wanting a laptop for a long long time and PC Specialist have been at the forefront of my mind for my next purchase for years. The service has been excellent- the laptop came in well under the 5 day fast track I selected! One or two of the lights don''t work, and the dedicated aeroplane function on the chassis isn''t responsive, but I can only assume that''s a firmware thing- also let''s be honest who really cares- I''m not a high-flying journalist. Additionally, while other websites offered Watch Dogs OR the Path Of Exile & friends in-game credit, I received both! Which is great as I actually really only wanted the Path of Exile credit... Ubisoft code so badly that I doubt even this phenomenal piece of graphical beastliness could handle that buggy open-world mess. Anyway i''ve hit my word minimum so yayyyyyy go buy love PC Specialist MWAH. (note: the Bullguard Security trial is an absolute pain in the ass- DELETE IT before doing anything else, it blocks most downloads and safe big-name websites for absolutely no reason. Get Avast instead. If there''s an option when you''re choosing your laptop to not have the Bullguard trial then take it. Trust me.)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great products and company - maybe need to work on customer service

      The computer I bought from pc specialist is great spec and at a good price - similar to what you would expect to pay if you bought all the components yourself and built from scratch. I did have some problems with getting a couple of simple questions answered before I placed my order however. I emailed their enquiries address twice with no reply and then tried through the online help option. I finally got a sub-standard reply, crossed my fingers and went through with the order. This is the 2nd pc I have bought from them and all in all it''s been a good experience.

      Advantages

      • "Can specify exactly what you want"

      Disadvantages

      You specify the computer, and get what you ask for, quickly and efficiently. Great service.

      This is the second PC I have bought from PCS. I liked being able to start with one of their standard builds but then to modify it for my own requirements. I wanted a slightly heftier power supply than normal, but also, as I was setting it up for a known environment I didn''t want the hassle of deleting the usual junk trial offers that you get with a standard retail PC. I specified no trial MS Office and no trial antivirus, as I already had my own stuff install for these. The whole process was very easy, and I received lots of feed back as to how the build was progressing and lots of texts about the state of the delivery process once that started. (I specified before 1pm delivery). Last time I specified a generic monitor and had initially a slight issue with a stuck pixel, which fortunately cleared. This time I specified Samsung monitor because I have had good experience with their screens, and the monitor that arrived was perfect. I had one query post delivery about the monitor stand fixing, but that was quickly dealt with via a phone call. Although I didn''t need it, I appreciated the foresight in sending me an email pointing out that as I had a graphics card I should connect the monitor to that rather than the onboard VGA output. This showed attention to detail on PCS part. In these days where most retail sales are for laptops it is good to have a supplier that can supply a good spec desktop and with Windows 7 rather than 8 which is not suitable for the network environment where I intend to use the new computer.

      Advantages

      • "Fantastic build quality"
      • "Excellent communication"
      • "Great value "

      Disadvantages

      • Errr....

      I can't recommend PC Specialist highly enough. Just perfect !

      After many weeks comparing different custom PC builders, I took the plunge with PC Specialist. Their quote was considerably cheaper than others and I found their website provided the most concise information in the clearest manner. It was actually the PC Specialist forum that convinced me to use them. This community was populated by highly experienced and enthusiastic people who were not employed in any way by PC Specialist and had nothing to gain from suggesting I use them. It was this vote of confidence that convinced me. Once ordered, PC Specialist kept me up to date (almost by the hour) as to the state of my build. Delivery was quick (and excellently packaged) and once set up the PC has been simply awesome.

      Advantages

      • "Brilliant website with very helpful advise"
      • "Build your computer to meet your specific needs"

      Disadvantages

      High quality computer from a strongly recommended company

      PC Specialist offers great products that exactly match your needs. Very friendly & helpful service, with extremely informative and easy to use website. Build your own computer using help guides that clearly explain the purpose of each component, and choose what meets your needs. Most importantly, you know exactly what brand & specification of component is being fitted. Having built your computer, you can save a quote & order within the next 5 days - very simple & easy. This is my 5th computer, and the quality is still as good as ever. Build time was around 3 weeks, but well worth the wait. Delivery was superb: Chose the day of delivery, and the courier gives you a 1hr timeslot. The delivery van can be tracked on the web - you cannot get any better. Buy with confidence. This is a highly recommended company.

      Disadvantages

      Great service and Tech support

      The laptop arrived very quickly and is very good quality. The service was also very helpful, I emailed about a problem I was having and got a reply that day. However when using the phone service I had difficultly hearing the person on the other line. I ended up getting a driver power state failure on my laptop however after contacting the service I got it fixed and it has failed to give me any more problems since.

      Custom Laptop Build - Would use again, will be recommending. Value choice and guidance.

      Looking for a gaming laptop that will enable fun on six month trips off-shore. All the mainstream ones are too expensive or the trade off of feateres and price are not what I needed. Managed to spec a good gaming laptop, with plenty of storage, and all the features I want at a good saving over similar spec laptops from the big name brands. The way the on-line system checks your configuration is good too. Paid for speedy build and delivery, and went faster than expected. Very good communications too - got regular email updating me on progress and shipping - and it was securely packaged. Very happy so far!

      Advantages

      • "Plug in and away you go"
      • "Quick delivery"
      • "Communication was really good"
      • "Great selection of options to choose from"

      Disadvantages

      • "Nothing bad to say in my experience "

      Good selection of options and spot on service

      I was looking for a pc supplier that had a good range at reasonable prices and found this with PC specialist! Configuration of my order was straightforward and gave numerous options to choose from and this, along with the ability to save configurations for later, gave me the chance to compare a few different setups before buying. Once I had settled on my choices, ordering was simple and hassle free. From the point of ordering onwards I received constant communication as to the progress of my order through the process; building, testing and delivery (right down to the name of the delivery driver!). The order was delivered at the promised time, safely and very well packaged. Setup of the pc was as simple as plugging in the cables and settting up Windows - I was up and running in a matter of minutes. All in all I am very impressed with PC specialist and would recommend them to anyone wholeheartedly.
