This is by far the best laptop I've ever owned and I'm very pleased with it.
First time buying from pc specialist, was initially reluctant ordering from an online website I hadnt heard of before but with excellent reviews and parts and pcs far cheaper than anywhere else i decided to order from them.
Was impressed with the service; received information on what part of the build was happening on each day and the build was quick with the delivery being next day after the pc was built for no additional charge. Inside had warranties for the different components and a booklet of how to set up the pc.
Have now bought several computers from PC Specialist.
The Customer Service team were great - they actually saved me money by downgrading some of the spec as it was more than I would need for the applications that I run.
The site has plenty of helpful info and is easy to use. Easy to build up a quote and then tweak it until satisfied.
And you don't get tons of crap software that you don't need like you do with some other suppliers!
I wanted to buy a decent gaming rig so I had a quick look at pc specialist and wasn't dissapointed they had excatly what I was after in terms of pricing and the products available I was able to pick every part of my new pc and all the various options are explained. The build time was quick as well I got notified every day about the progress of my pc from the order been received to the order been delivered. It took 4 days for my pc to get to me from the day it was ordered very fast delivery times. The quality of my pc wasnt damaged in transit as they place foaming around the parts that could be damaged or come loose during the journey, they also provided me with instructions on how to set up my new computer. The rig that I have works perfectly without any issues the quality is amazing. It also comes with a three year gurantee which is generous. The pricing was also fair and the delivery and manufacturing comes within the cost of the pc which means no added expanses when it comes to check out. They also have offered a lifetime hardware support for buying with them which I am sure to use in the future, as there will undoubtably be something that goes wrong somewhere. I am very statisifed with my order from pc specaialist and would highly recommend them for their high quality service and support you're sure to find what you need compuiters wise there.
This was my first experience buying a custom built PC as before I have always used mid-high range laptops. I found the ordering process easy but needed the help of a friend to pick out exactly what I needed and didn't need. I didn't like how the only way to tell the difference in the cost of a component was to add it and remove it and compare the total cost. Itemized components would have made this much easier or even a (+£30) or (-£25) listed on each in the dropdown to allow me to choose the correct price part. Furthermore I would have liked to start with a template PC and build up better components to suit my budget. This would make it clear where I could expand or save money. The overall build of the PC is excellent in quality and runs wonderfully well and I am very happy with my purchase.
In a negative point, the packaging for the computer was huge. So big, in fact, that the DPD location I aimed to send it to refused to accept the parcel due to its size. This meant I had to deliver to home and stay back from work one day which was not ideal. It was easily 5 times the size of the computer (which was larger than I was expecting anyway.
I found the service to be very quick, my PC was with me within 5 days (even when delayed by redelivery) and the build looks good. I made use of the PC Specialist forums also where I could share my build and get very helpful feedback
Would definitely order from PCSpecialist again. The PC works well beyond what I believed. They were willing to communicate to me at all times and made sure the PC was delivered on time, keeping me updated during the process.
I bought a small computer for personal user and I was very pleased with the service and prompt delivery
We have used PC Specialist a few times for our office computers and the quality and built times are great we have not had any problems with the computers or customer support.
very happy with my purchase. quick delivery, well prepared,
all up and running very quickly.
I found it very usefull to collect from a local address at a
time to suit me.
I like the updates during assembly.
I ordered a PC from PC Specialist for the first time, I knew through friends that the company could be trusted to build my own desired spec of PC for the best value and quality. I received my PC 5 days after ordering and could not be happier with it. Everything was packaged extremely well and the computer was easy to unbox and assemble. Set up was very easy with the handy guide they include in the welcome pack and the computer started up first time with no issues and runs extremely well. I couldn't be happier with the build quality and their quality control processes are excellent.
Ordered a laptop from PCSpecialist because we needed high memory, SSD storage, but without it necessarily being a full-on gaming rig.
Also nice to get a PC that isn't pre-ruined with nagware.
Only wrinkle is that the SSD I chose was stock restricted and it would have been nice to know that when we ordered it, not 2 days later as it added some time to the final delivery.
Not being able to see the product in advance causes some worry, but the build quality, packaging, and prep work was good.
Excellent service, and very friendly website to navigate.
I would defiantly do more shopping with this company.
Good packaging when delivering my PC.
Accurate shipping time shown in website and they kept me updated on each stage.
This is the first computer I have ordered from PC Specialist and I could not be happier with the results. The build quality is fantastic and the computer arrived a few days earlier than I was expecting, however they clearly didn't skip on quality control. The computer was easy to unpack and set up and ran first time without issue.
Easy way to get a great Birthday Surprise present for our sons 14th Birthday..
He wanted a gaming pc on a budget and we accomplished all this through PcSpecialist
The thing that attracted me the most was their service, keeping me up to date at all times in regards to my item building and delivery.
Many options available (I would have wanted maybe a few more, like more cases or different graphic cards although you are restricted to a certain range depending on the model you chose) and a really helpful sale process where many other extras are available easily.
In general I thought it was slightly cheaper but same quality as buying similar hardware of a branded laptop.
