      The PC you actually want at a respectable price. No qualms.

      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.

      Advantages

      • "Everything explained well"
      • Reliable
      • "Quick "

      Disadvantages

      Quick, Reliable and easy to use

      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.

      Disadvantages

      Great variety, price and delivery.

      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.

      Very impressed.

      ( laptop's amazing too ;)

      Disadvantages

      Great experience all around.

      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.

      Advantages

      • "Good quality build "

      Disadvantages

      • "Case Branding"
      • "Finance options"

      An easy recommendation.

      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.

      I would recommend PC Specialist to anyone looking for an above average computer :)

      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!

      Advantages

      • Reliable
      • "Much faster than expected"

      Disadvantages

      Very rapid and quality service

      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.

      • "Fairly Fast"

      Disadvantages

      • "Support often busy"

      Protected, Good Quality, Specified, Fast Delivery

      PC that I ordered came fairly fast after fast construction. All worked well, had trouble with setup but their support team was busy (I assume, I ran 3 times each on hold for 15 minutes before being hung up).

      Advantages

      • "Cost Effective"
      • Quality
      • Customisable
      • Fast

      Disadvantages

      • "Delivery address same as Billing Address"

      Very good service, would recommend to others

      Another great service from PC Specialist. Price was very good for the spec and build and delivery were very quick.
      Only gripe is not being able to get machine delivered to address other than my home billing address (requiring me to take machine myself to Office).
      Overall, still very satisfied
