Found out about PC Specialist through work (we buy a few custom built laptops/PCs there). Had fun customizing the options, there is a verification process once you click submit to make sure that your parts are compatible (the forums are also helpful for this, it's a good place to go if you have a fixed budget and aren't sure whether to upgrade your CPU, go for a better GPU or add a higher capacity SSD).
The order stage was easy and throughout the process I received emails keeping me updated of progress. I would definitely recommend paying for the faster build time, any wait is a long wait when you've bought a new laptop/PC and are keen to use it.
The laptop arrived and was well packaged, no worry about damage. The laptop build quality feels excellent.
All in all, PC Specialist were a pleasure to deal with, I would recommend them to anyone.
Very pleased with the options and guidance available, got a great very high spec machine and I went with kit I was previously not aware of (M.2 SSD).
Delivery was excellent with an incredibly well packed box, everything arrived and worked straight away
Great machine, happy with the price.
Overall the service was good and I am pleased with the final product.
I raised an quote and submitted a query to establish if it would be the most optimal for my needs. The response tools few days (by which time my quote had gone) and wasn't well written.
Once I had the response and deciphered what was meant I recreated the order and submitted it.
From that point onwards the service was great, well communicated, fast. The PC arrived well packaged with good instructions on setting it up.
Runs amazingly well,, perfect for my needs!
The service from PCSpecialist started off a little frustratingly. I created a quote and sent in a query to get any feedback on the build. By the time of heard back the quote had gone. The response wasn't overly clear and was obviously rushed.
Once I'd recreated my quote and submitted my order the service www better. Could communication through automated emails and tracking system online.
Product arrive fairly quickly and looks great, runs great and is exactly what I was looking for.
Always use PC Specialist for my PC needs! Excellent!
PC specialist provided a fast and efficient service. I was very happy with the communication from them regarding my order. My laptop arrived in good condition and exactly to specifications. Will definitely use again.
My son pointed me to the website and although a bit warey this company let me know step by step on the PC build and where anouts right up to delivery. Will deffo use again. Top service.
Pc Specialist are great for if you know exactly what you need in your computer, and care about the minutiae. The level of detail they provide you with post-purchase as well as the amount of control with the build is brilliant. Shipping was fast, arriving within 2 days after shipping was confirmed. Only slow aspect was the acceptance of payment which took 6 days.
This is the 5th computer I've bought from PC specialist, and they're always work perfectly. My only complaint can be a lack of prediction when it's sitting in pre production. Once the production starts though you can see where it is at each step and how long you're expecting. It's always come in within their predicted window and the rigs have always performed well.
Great computer. Excellent choice of upgrades. Good up dates from this company. Took a little longer to build than I expected
I ordered a 15" Octane 2 (Clevo P750DM) at PCSpecialist. It took almost a month to get to me (i'm on spain) but was absolutely worth it. Considering the cost, this configuration was like 250€ cheaper than local alternatives.
Their website is useful and easy to navigate. They can solve any problems via email or phone.
I'm astonished to the quality of the laptop. It just feels right, and had no problems with it. I specially like how silent it is on day to day tasks, I can't even hear it!
Delivery was OK, but I think it could be better with more updates from the delivery courier.
As a first time user of PC Specialist I was impressed by the ease with which we could configure the custom high-spec graphics rendering machine that we needed. Compared to other websites that we had tried, this was really easy and we didn't feel overly constrained by the choices available. It was a simple task to juggle some of our choices to ensure we got the best specification for the job on a fixed budget. The build process did take slightly longer than we expected, but we were more than happy with the result. We now have a fast, powerful machine that still has room for some expected future upgrades. Build quality is excellent and it is remarkably quiet in operation.
Had been a while since i ordered a new laptop and after comparing several companies that provide custome builds pcspecialist.co.uk was i found not only one of the cheapest places to go for what i wanted but had better reviews about it than most. I ordred a laptop with no OS so i could install my own when it arrived and they supplied a disk with drivers saving me having to get them myself from clevo, the order was processed quickly it took only a few weeks for my order to be filled.
This was my first time using PC Specialist and I have to say I have been extremely impressed and satisfied with my purchase. The quality of the product is for the most part excellent. I purchased the Lafite with an i7 processor, 8 Ram and 250 SSD. It boots up really quick, runs applications with ease and has a great screen resolution. I am yet to use the laptop intensively but so far I'm confident that I've made an outstanding choice getting the biggest bang for my buck whilst avoiding the advertising cost supplements of the more popular brands. I would actually give this product 4.5 out of 5 if the 'Rating' would let me. My only quibble is that the track pad can stick sometimes meaning that I accidentally increase or reduce the zoom of the screen. This doesn't happen that often but can be frustrating when it does so may consider investing in a wireless mouse.
This small-form PC integrates well with my AV receiver and takes up very little space. It's the smallest yet most powerful piece of computing kit I now own and was simple and easy to set up, picking up Wi-Fi immediately. The purchase process was straightforward: not needing to make much by way of customisation (I added some RAM), I selected one of the standard builds on offer and then logged in occasionally to track progress through the build and despatch process. This is the second item I've bought from PC Specialist and I am impressed with the easy transaction and the information provided.
