      Advantages

      • Many.

      Disadvantages

      • None.

      These guys do exactly what they promise.

      I have always been annoyed when buying a high end ''''main brand'''' pc that I end up paying for many features, peripherals and software that I often have no need for and cannot easily remove.

      Having browsed the web across the many independent houses that will build ''''to your own specification'''' I found that many still used bundles of equipment and pre-installed software.

      With pcspecialist I was able to browse through each section in turn (case, motherboard, cpu, cooling, memory, graphics cards, disk drives, power, software, peripherals) and pick to my own exact requirements. The intuitive website checks each component for compatibility with your other choices - you cannot order something that will not work.

      Upon ordering and paying (whilst I did use the ''''fast track'''' service) on the Monday, my pc arrived on the Thursday. It''''s fantastic. There is / was no fuss, and it does exactly what I want. Very happy customer indeed.

      Advantages

      • "Custom chosen parts"
      • "Good communications"
      • "Good quality build"

      Disadvantages

      • "Took a little longer than expected to be delivered"

      Good quality laptop and overall I''m happy

      Good machine, although not quite the case I was thinking I was going to get. I paid for the 3 day build and delivery, but the computer wasn''''t sent until 4th working day, ie 6 days after order, but that''''s a minor concern. Not all the hotkeys were installed - I had to download some software for that; again minor. A nicely built laptop, though I will monitor for temperature issues - the last laptop had a tendency to overheat and affected the components. Emails were received at each stage of the process

      Advantages

      • Delivery
      • Service
      • "Components choice"
      • " competitive to DIY and other shops"
      • Price

      Disadvantages

      Very happy with the experience.

      I was very impressed with the store and the service. The more I researched my choices on the web, the more convinced I got with choosing PC Specialist. I liked the fact that the site offered warnings relating with the balance of the components. I believe I made no nonsensical choices, as I hope to upgrade later but it would be good to get a comfort email from a specialist saying there is no blatant waste on the choices.

      Advantages

      • "Reasonable Prices and Payment Plans"
      • "Great Delivery and Safe Packaging"
      • "Well Tested"
      • "High Quality PCs"
      • "Flexible Builds"
      • "Fantastic Customer Support"
      • "Great Website"

      Disadvantages

      • "Slow Build Time (Without Fast Track)"

      For a fantastic quality custom PC, go with these guys.

      A while ago I ordered a custom laptop from here and it lasted a very long time (until I broke it by being stupid!). Usually I build my own PCs but instead of taking half a day off to do so, I thought I''d simply get another from PC Specialist to save me some time. It''s not significantly more expensive than sourcing the parts yourself and building it. All the parts are tested by them, and their cable management is nice and tidy. Saved me some time and they''re highly recommended. Quality product was received in great condition with no issues whatsoever. The fast track and quick delivery service is definitely worth a cost if you''re impatient!

      Advantages

      • "quick service"

      Disadvantages

      • "very slight rattle (v minor)"

      Great computer, very quick service

      Great service - Received my PC 3 days after ordering it, having paid for delivery within 5 days. Computer is excellent. My only very slight issue is that one of the case fans rattles slightly, like it hasn''t been screwed in properly. I will look into it when I get around to it. Apart from that I am really happy

      Disadvantages

      Highly recommended fast and efficient service

      I am very satisfied with the service and advice provided by PCSpecialist and my computer arrived on time. I can recommend them to build a computer to your specification without parts or software you don''t need.

      Advantages

      • "More or less everything."
      • "Fantastic SSD Speeds"
      • "Fast startup time"

      Disadvantages

      • "Occasional slow 2nd Hard drive loading"
      • "Slow USB read time"

      A few minor kinks but a fantastic new machine, exactly what I was after

      I''ve been needing a new PC for a while now, and having many friends that had previously used PCSpecialists they were the first and only company I turned to. My new machine is fast, the graphics card is great, running new games are highest settings with no issues whatsoever, however before the machine came I received an email telling me not to plug the monitor into the bottom monitor port as it was the motherboard instead of the graphics card, this turned out to be the other way around. Overall the machine is a fantastic piece of hardware, it did however have a few small kinks. - My Hard drive came with 60GB of preinstalled software, this wouldn''t normally be an issue at all, however when your SSD is only 240GB and several GB is already gone from windows, it is a bit of an issue. Having a sort of booklet explaining what was and was not save to install/uninstall/delete would have been quite nice as I have a 25gb ''drivers'' folder, that I don''t know if its safe to remove. - USB''s are regularly quite slow in the beginning, even USB''s that operated at fine speeds on my older machine, again this is mostly a minor nitpick and not something that effects PC performance at all. As stated before, overall a fantastic machine, and fits my job as a 3d artist & game developer perfectly, now I can work at full speed without any slow down whatsoever.
