Very pleased with the whole experience overall. Easy to use website allowing extensive customisation, and I could not find a comparable specification for the same price. It was also simple to track the progress of the order and communication superb too. Delivery was prompt and easy to track, and the information supplied with the PC very helpful.
i was very impressed with the website and the way it allowed you to customise your pc, the speed in which they build it and had it delivery and finally the quality of the product at their prices
brilliant and easy to use website, it allows you to fully customise your computer to the specs that you want and will tell you if the parts are compatible together. the whole process only took around 8 days before it was at my door
I bought an All-In-One pc from these guys and it could not have gone better. Choosing components was a breeze, and the information through the manufacturing/testing/dispatch process was great. The was GPS tracked to the minute with updates available on my phone. It looks great, everything worked straight out of the box and most importantly the wife loves the PC. I couldn't be happier. I will not hesitate to use them again.
Simple and easy to scope out and no problems with the computer when it arrived.
I was unsure about ordering a PC online but the reviews I had seen gave me confidence. The website is easy to use with many configuration options as well as having it check your chosen components for compatibility. It was built and delivered in very quick order. It arrived safe and sound and was up and running in minutes.
Second laptop purchased from these guys (this time for myself) and I cant be happier. The site looked great, was easy to use and build the exact machine I wanted. Specs were clear and the descriptions painted the perfect picture of the exact the machine I was going to get. The first one that I bought last year for a family member is still running perfectly.
Build and delivery system is great (came well within quoted time), step by step updates and great communication throughout the whole process. It really feels like they are putting care into the order and paying attention to detail at all times.
I chose to go for a system with no OS and there was plenty of advice and steps to take in order to prepare for the pc and get the best from it. Again support was excellent, drivers came on a disk as well as being supplied on-line, tailored to my machine. No digging around.
So far I cannot comment on after-care as I've had no issues. The laptop looks great and runs perfectly. Support with all contact details are highlighted and well displayed should I need them.
Overall. very happy with the computer. Prices were very competitive and the hardware stays as current as possible. The fact that its not a pre-built system with a model number adhering to specific specs is the most attractive thing. You choose exactly what goes in. No pre-installed rubbish, just the machine you want.
Thanks again folks. Seems pointless buying branded computers any more.
The product arrived much more quickly given it was just after christmas when I ordered it. The product itself was very good quality and works a thousand times better than the previous laptop I owned. If I was going to get another custom built pc or laptop I would definitely recommend PCSpecialist as they are reliable, quick to build and send and the website was very easy to use with everything explained simply enough for me to understand.
Overall I found the pc specialist experience quiet enjoyable. Having the choice of desired specs is a major reason why I went through them. Didn't find a better deal anywhere else either. Great delivery time over the Christmas holidays too.
( laptop's amazing too ;)
My experience with ordering a high-end system was all positive. I have a business in Germany - so the held they held the tax, built the system and I had it within 7 days.
The build is a great quality and I have no issues with their pricing, either. My only real issue is having their branding plastered all over the case itself.
To begin my Laptops specs in short;
- Cosmos II 15.6 inch Full HD (1920x1080)
- i7-4710MQ Quad Core Processor
- Nvidia GTX 850m 2GB graphics card
- 1TB Scorpio Blue Hard Drive
- 8GB DDR3 Ram
- Windows 8.1 64bit Operating System
I was very pleased with my Laptop from PC Specialist. It took them quite sometime to build it but this was understandable as I ordered it over the new year period. Delivery was prompt and DPD were very careful to ensure it was not damaged in transit. Once it was finally in my hands I was please to see a fully working Laptop exactly as requested.
One of the first things I preceded to do was install the programs I had built it for, Adobe's Creative Suit 6. It ran them perfectly. This Laptop was built for use at University and over the last few days has fulfilled that job perfectly and has had no issues being taken from point A to B. The battery life even allowed for plenty of work to be done on location as well as on the train.
Secondly I was dying to try out the other reason why I bought this powerful machine, games. With Steam installed and Civilization 5 ready I was pleasantly surprised to see my GTX 850m doing what it did best, don't think I've ever seen Civ 5 at 1080p6fps. The fan noise is rather laud when gaming but nothing more than expected when running such a hot GPU, with a headset on its barely noticeable.
The in built webcam and microphone are nothing special but that doesn't bother me as I personally use an external webcam and studio style microphone. The keyboard is easy to type with and the keys are nicely spread apart the only problem I have with it is the power button has to be held down for a few seconds before the computer first powers on. (However I do believe that this maybe a Windows 8 feature and not the laptop keyboard itself)
In the end I would have to recommend PC Specialist to anyone looking to buy an above average PC as this is far easier and safer (due to the warranty) than building your own.
Full recommended, would and will buy from again!
I never had any issues with the website in question. However this mean't that I never had to talk with the customer service side of the website so I can only comment on the quality of the product purchased. After playing around with the laptop I found that I works above and beyond what I expected playing everything I threw at it on Ultra-High specs. I was honestly surprised by the speed in which the product was made and delivered as I though that it would take a much longer time given that I ordered it not too long after christmas.
Great product. exactly what i expected and more!
Fast build and delivery, i had it in my hands within a week of placing the order.
Highly recommend for anyone wanting a specific built laptop/PC. Great Job!
Excellent service from start to finish. Loved how the company kept you updated on the process of my order. Would recommend PC Specialist to all my friends. Excellent.
