A PC fit for video editing
Member Name: Ealann10
Advantages: Easy to customise a PC online. Good advice given. Reasonably priced.
Disadvantages: Helps to know a little about PCs.
I replace my PC perhaps every 10 years. In that time things move on rapidly and you find yourself well out of touch. The time came around again and this time I wanted a PC with enough grunt to handle HD video editing. Where to start? Searching with Google you quickly find plenty of advice, you also discover the latest about fast PCs. Finally I had a reasonable idea of what I wanted. The next search was to find a supplier and this is where I discovered PCSpecialist.
I landed on a web page that had a range of six PCs configured by cost and ability. I chose a model that closely fitted my aspiration and then refined it by editing the spec online. A big concern is not to make a mistake due to lack of knowledge, I therefore called their sales. The chap gave very good advice and we made the final tweaks to the PC build.
A few weeks later it arrived. The set up was very straight forward but I still had to call their support when I wasn't clear how to plug up the 5.1 speakers. Next time I will read the manual before picking up the phone.
I found PCSpecialist's service to be excellent. The PC was priced well and the marketing and support help lines were quick to answer my questions.
Summary: A great company to buy a great PC
