      Advantages

      • "High level of customisation"
      • "Build time quicker than expected"
      • "Good customer service"

      Disadvantages

      • "Very loud fan on laptop"

      Exceptional build and delivery time, unfortunate problem with laptop fan.

      My PC Specialist ordering experience was a joy from start to finish. I made use of the customer service to find an appropriate spec for what I would need to be doing on the laptop, and they were excellent in drawing me up a quote and answering any questions I had regarding this. The build time was much quicker than indicated, meaning I received the laptop just over a week after ordering!

      The laptop is so far running brilliantly, and I am very satisfied. The only complaint I have is that the fan has a habit of coming on at 100%(extremely loud) randomly, even when the laptop is idle. A quick google told me that this has been a problem with the model (Optimus V 15") for a few years now, which PC Specialist has said they are working on fixing but apparently to no avail! Sort it out PCS and don't keep selling us this model unawares! That said, the problem does seem to be settling down now, and otherwise I am extremely happy.

      Advantages

      • "Competitively Priced"
      • Quick
      • Simple

      Disadvantages

      Ultimate gaming PC made easy

      Not being very knowledgeable about PC's but wanting a true beast of a gaming PC PC Specialist offered the perfect service. They have a simple online custom PC build tool which explains everything and links to the ever helpful PC Specialist forum where my proposed build was refined to something that would meet my needs perfectly. I ordered my PC and within that working week it had been delivered. It does everything I want it do and already I have a much greater understanding of what is required of a PC build.
      Thanks very much 10/10

      Laptop good. Sean like.

      I needed this computer to be ready for me to move to Japan. It was ready to go straight away and works perfectly. It's exactly what I wanted and it arrived super fast. I bought this laptop as a desktop replacement, and whilst a laptop is rarely as good this really is.

      Advantages

      • "looks good"
      • "processing speed is absurd"

      Disadvantages

      • "the screw that held the case on didnt come off no matter how much i unscrewed. turned out the riffling was gone on the nearest section. had to apply a lot of force"
      • "finding the windows activation key was tricky"

      So far so great, worth the wait

      The product itself is amazing, truly, but then I did pay for it to be future proof fore several years. The ordering service was helpful and i did spend quite a bit of time with the online guys trying to figure out why it was taking so long.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      If you half understand computers, but not confident enough to DIY, use PCS

      I have purchased 5 desktops/laptops from PCSpecialist over the last 10 years and I love the freedom of getting exactly what you want. Ordering is part of the fun, tweaking components like Processor, RAM, Hard drive, Operating system etc and seeing instant effect on the price through an easy to use website, and up till now the products have always been top notch. Good comms throughout the build and delivery stages. Had only limited contact with the support as I haven''t needed to, the computers all seem to be high quality. I think one of the earlier ones had a psu break down, could have sent it back but it is fairly straightforward to replace and they just sent a new unit straight away. I don''t think I imagined that, as I said, it was one of the earlier PC''s. I would recommend this company to anyone.

      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.
