"I recently purchased a laptop from PC Specialist. As a first time buyer from a company I had only just come across via google search, I was sceptical. However I have found the service and product to be of a good standard. I would definetly recommend PC specialist to anyone purchasing a laptop whereby they like to add their own "personal touch" to the specification of their product.Very Pleased."
"After months of searching for some resseler of clevo notebooks and through extesive forum reading and comparing of many different companies i found one which was even operating at uk, which was very convinient for im staying in ireland. and most of all this company, Pc specialist has very little negative feedback from customers which is usually a good indicator of how they are doing things and was the most important things for me. You just dont want to spend 2000 euros on a computer to find out it has some issues and struggle with unhelpful customer services. Well it payed off so far. Pc specialist have competetive prices, wide selection and my offered the exact model with specifications i was looking for. Ordering was easy enough and about two-three weeks later (soon enough but it was pain anyway) dhl delivered the computer, which is flawless. Everything working wonderful, preinstalled system was free of any bloatware and so far i cant really complain about anything. I havent been dealing with their customer services so far (except of short messaging during the ordering proces) so i cant really rate this yet, but all and all i can really recommend pc specialist for anyone living on the Islands and hope my experiences with them stays the same."
"Great service. Very happy with my purchase :)"
"Absolutely fantastic thank you! Arrived quickly, eacy to set up and all working brilliantly. Would highly recommend."
"From the time of placing my order to the delivery time I received good advice on my choice of build. After receiving my laptop I had a couple of minor issues which were solved very quickly, one was fixed by them remotely operating my laptop which was rather amusing, watching the mouse pointer flying round the screen clicking on various boxes whilst I sat back and watched. Now all is well and works very fast indead!My finished laptop had the following spec:Chassis & Display Optimus II: 17.3" Glossy Full HD LED Widescreen (1920x1080)Processor (CPU) Intel® Core™i7 Dual Core Processor i7-2620M (2.70GHz) (Special Offer)Memory (RAM) 8GB SAMSUNG 1333MHz SODIMM DDR3 MEMORY (2 x 4GB)Graphics Card nVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M - 1GB DDR3 Video RAM - DirectX® 112nd Graphics Card NONEMemory - 1st Hard Disk 750GB WD SCORPIO BLACK WD7500BPKT, SATA 3 Gb/s, 16MB CACHE (7200 rpm)1st Hard Disk Partitions 500GB, 250GB2nd Hard Disk NONE1st DVD/BLU-RAY Drive SONY BC-5500H 4x BLURAY ROM/DVD WRITER & CYBERLINK SOFTWARE Memory Card Reader Internal 9 in 1 Card Reader (MMC/RSMMC/SD: Mini, XC & HC/MS: Pro & Duo)Sound Card Creative Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ Surround 5.1 PRONetwork Facilities GIGABIT LAN & WIRELESS 802.11N CARD INC.

"Very quite drive.But problem is that it crashed my outlook contact and email programme in particulars of fonts!All Japanese fonts gone funny and cannot read at all. It is the biggest problem I am facing,My IT support told me nothing I can do about it. Is that right? Anyway I am not happy currently as I do not know how to deal with this problem."
"Having read some reviews and adverts for PC Specialist (PCS) in the magazine PC Advisor, I decided to visit their website as I was looking for a new computer at a lowish cost per spec.I was immediately impressed with the website and the ability to customise then save the quote. After a few days considering and comparing I decided to go ahead and order from PC Specialist. I again was extremely impressed with the informative emails that kept me in touch with the progress of my PC and considering I ordered just before a Bank Holiday weekend my order was progressed rapidly and delivered safely.My regard for PC Specialist continued in this vein as I opened the packaging and viewed the contents. As promised all the CD's/DVD's were present (incl Win 7) and an informative PCS booklet.I have now had the PC for approx 10 days and everything works perfectly and up to the expectations that had been building up since my first visit to their website. I rest easy in the knowledge that should there be any problems in the near future my PC will be collected, repaired and returned free of charge.It just remains for me to congratulate PC Specialist on a job well done. I will certainly buy from them again and recommend them to all my customers. (Please note, I am not connected with PCS in any way)."

"This is my 2nd purchase from PC Specialist. Their service is second to none. I received a lot of help with building my system, via email, and in each case received prompt replies to my questions. My order was placed on the 4/8 and delivered on 12/8. Excellent service. "
"I have always bought Dell products but took a risk and bougt this from PC Specialist. It was delivered on time. Everything about the transaction was 100% professional. The product is so far as good as anything I have ever bought (time will tell). The sales team never once tried to over sell this pc and told me when my choices were not cost effective etc.To sum up , am I please with what I bought or more to the point what I got for my money? The answer is easy Yes and thank you PC Specialist's."
