      An excellent and easy transaction.

      I am not a great techno-head and was buying on the recommendation of a friend. PC Specialist provided me with a hassle free experience.

      Excellent Service

      I was very impressed by the customisation process which led me step by step through the configuration. The excellent use of technology continued once my order was placed as I was able to track progress through each stage of the build and test.

      Advantages

      • "Quick Build and Delivery"
      • "Excellent Value"
      • "Windows 7 Option"
      • "Excellent Configurator"

      Disadvantages

      So powerfull :)

      I wanted to replace my old laptop that had been struggleing of late, I thought about other specialist gaming manufacturers but then I found PC Specialist. I found they were able to procuce a much better laptop for a fraction of the price. I'm used to just buying ready built stuff and not really paying much attention or understanding the spec, so the website and configurator were really helpfull in explaining what each component was and helped to configure the best laptop that I could afford.

      Its a great feeling when you install a game and it automatically sets the the settings to ultra high and then going on to play and the laptop runs the game effortlessly. Very Impressed. It runs a lot cooler and qiueter than my old laptop and extremely quickly thanks to the SSD. It would have been nice to have a larger SSD but due to how expensive it would have been, so I opted for a small mSATA SSD to run the OS and some software and a slightly larger SSD for other game files and everything else. Having just bought a cheapy laptop for business I had just discovered the frustration of useing Windows 8, so sticking with Windows 7 for my personal laptop was a no brainer and it was a great option to have.

      The laptop seems very well built with a very strong feeling body. It was built, tested and delivered within a week and I was continually informed of its progress.

      Advantages

      • "Nice Keyboard"
      • "Cool design"
      • Portable
      • "Full HD screen"
      • "8GB RAM"

      Disadvantages

      • "Sceen seems fragile"
      • "Slow (but cheap) CPU"

      Would use these guys again, quick and easy.

      I need a laptop to portably write and compile code. I intentionally bought a cheap CPU because I wanted the option to upgrade at a later date, and I didn't have the money to spare at the moment.

      It's great, battery life seems to be like 8 hours which is more than I need.

      A great buy at a fair price, with great delivery. They really go overboard on the packing, laptop was in a box with Styrofoam and that box was in a bigger box with massive bubblewrap.

      Advantages

      • "PC looks and works fantastic"
      • "PC packaged well and delivered as expected"
      • "Great communication during build process"
      • "Website highlighted mismatches of parts"
      • "Website easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "Only minor thing is that I had to input the windows activation key"

      PC Specialist - the name says it all!

      Very happy with the full experience of buying a custom built overclocked PC from PC Specialist. The website was easy to use and even told me when I had chosen unnecessary parts (i.e. a higher than needed power supply).

      Once ordered I was able to track progress through regular updates on the website on my account. On the day it was due to arrive I received a text informing me of a 1 hour delivery slot from the courier and it arrived during this time.

      PC was well packaged to keep it safe and secure in transit.

      Very happy with the PC - looks fantastic, works great and runs very very quietly.

      Only minor thing was that I had to input the windows key to activate it (although everything had been loaded in) and that it was not apparent that the overclock had been done. I confirmed it had using some free software online but it would have been good to have something inside the packaging to confirm what had been done.

      Overall 9.5/10

      Disadvantages

      • None

      I have not used Customer Support, but its fantastic knowing they are THERE

      pc specialist came highly recommended from my friend Ann. They clearly do what they say on the package, and I am very pleased with everything so far. From ordering, building, despatching, packaging, and delivery, everything went very smoothly, in fact, my package arrived sooner than had been anticipated. As yet, I have no complaints, other than standard human error having moved from Windows XP to Windows 7! I was rather worried about actually ordering something like this from scratch, but had my friend Ann on hand to smooth out any difficulties. I would certainly recommend pc going forward and would have no hesitation in using them again in the future for myself. Lets hope pc continues to grow and develop, so that they will be around when I am ready to order my next computer!

      If you want a fast, reliable, cost effective and conscientious service - buy from PCSpecialist.

      I bought a custom built high end gaming PC from PC specialist. I wanted it quickly so paid the additional £60 for a fast build. Unlike some other companies I've used previously, when these guys say they build it in 3 days - they build it in 3 days. I ordered on the Friday and watched the build process over the weekend via their website - I could have been in the room, I always knew what was going on. By Tuesday afternoon I had my new PC and it worked perfectly straight out of the box.

      I also noticed a label on the box with clear instructions to the courier that the package could only be delivered to me, this was very reassuring that PCSpecialist cared about what happened to their build once it was out of their hands. I haven't had any reason to contact customer support for anything yet, I hardly need to when the product works as intended.

      Good. Would go with them again
