Excellent service and build quality. Sales contact was very helpful in guiding me through the specification and best options when configuring the system. PC was built promptly and I was kept informed every step of the way. Unfortunately this PC developed a fault(with operating system) and this problem was dealt with quickly, efficiently and with no fuss and was returned in no time at all. It is this aftersales services that Makes PCSPECIALIST stand out from the crowd, Great service all round.

Quick and easy service. Only took 6 days from order to delivery!
Really powerful machine, and matched the spec.

Excellent service, prompt delivery and the pc and monitor arrived in great condition. Windows was already installed and there was very little setting up to do. Excellent value for a pre-build, highly recommended.

I have had my new laptop delivered according to my specification and built extremely well. I would have no hesitation in recommending PC Specialist to my friends.

I frankly can't think of any reason to not buy your next laptop or PC through PC Specialist. Unless you plan on assembling your own PC from parts (which I would personally recommend) then the next best price to performance will be achieved through a company like PC Specialist.
The small additional cost of your build (compared to the cost of the parts alone) is more than made up for with the technical support, ease of repair, and machine warranty services that PC Specialist provide.
I bought a laptop from them 5 years ago now, and I have used it throughout secondary education, and almost all of sixth form (13 - 18). It has seen many bumps and knocks, the odd coffee spilt over the keyboard, and probably a total of almost 10,000 hours of use. I've certainly not been free of any issues, but due to the nature of custom built laptops, all hardware issues are incredibly easy to diagnose and then repair. I've played over 6000 intense hours of various games on this laptop, and it still has the power to run new, demanding games, at excellent speeds.
I've contacted technical support a few times in the past for issues I wasn't able to sort without help, and they have been efficient, helpful, and successful every time so far.
With the occasional cleaning of the internals to get rid of the dust buildup, this laptop is running smoothly and quickly after all these years. I've got friends who need to replace their far more expensive devices much more often, as they are expensive to repair, and the performance of the tech degrades far quicker. Lastly, the joy of having 0 bloatware preinstalled from standard computer manufacturer is invaluable.
I've written probably far too much here, but as a summary, here are the main reasons I would recommend PC Specialist.

Best price to performance outside of self-assembly.
Excellent After-Sales services, i.e. Tech Support, Warranties and Repair Services.
Ease of Self-Repair. These devices are far easier to disassemble than prebuilt products from manufacturers, so repair is quick and easy. You'll therefore save heaps in the long run by saving on expensive proprietary repair services.
Ease of future upgrades. In these 5 years, I've only changed from a HDD to an SSD, but as technology is improved and reduces in price, you can easily swap in compatible parts to breath new life into your machine.
Finally; and this is certainly true for me, you stand to learn an awful lot about the workings of computers. Being able to repair my own laptop with so few hurdles has allowed me to learn a great deal about the components that power my machine, and many techniques for diagnosing and undertaking simple repairs. They're certainly skills I'll be able to utilise again and again throughout my life.

I hope I haven't rambled too much, but I certainly hope my experience with this company can help to inform you during your next purchase.

If I could give any advice to someone looking to make a purchase, it would be to thoroughly research the components you think you'd like. I'll admit I did make one mistake when I ordered this laptop, which was choosing an i7 processor because I thought i7s were just always better than i5s. If I could change one thing, I would've chosen a similarly priced i5 processor, with a higher clock speed. That's only because I didn't understand how the different aspects of processors were more important with certain use-cases, but for what I use this laptop for; which is general multimedia and gaming, a quicker i5 would've served me better. Educate yourself on what you plan on using your machine for, and then pick components accordingly.

For anyone that would like to know, the specifications of my laptop from 2014 are as follows:

Cosmos II Chassis (Fairly certain this was discontinued a while ago),
15.6" Full HD Matte Display,
i7-4710MQ 2.50GHz & 6MB Cache (Should've picked something like an i5-4690K at 3.5GHz and 3.9GHz with turbo. Would've left some budget for a better GPU too)
16GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM (2 x 8GB Sticks)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M (Great GPU at the time, but with an i5 I could've chosen an 860 or even an 870 for the same price)
750GB Scorpio Black HDD, at 7200 rpm (As the only component I upgraded, I am now using a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO).
If you do buy a laptop or PC, regardless of where you buy from, an SSD is probably one of the most valuable things you can invest in. Especially now that the prices have gone down considerably from when I bought mine, they're a must-have.

Price in 2014: £826 inc. VAT, and Silver Warranty. Biggest purchase I have ever made, still to this day, but after working and saving for a few years I bought it. After 5 years, I'm proud to say that it is still considerably quicker than most of my friends new, top-of-the-line Macbooks and Premium Branded Ultrabooks. Sure, it's an inch-and-a-bit thick and it weighs almost as much as I did when I was born, but it's lasted admirably for this long, and I can foresee it lasting a good while longer.

Great priced performance PCs. One issue I had was that the PSU selected apparently did not fit in the case. I'm surprised this check was not done on the build/config ordering screen as other checks are done there. Unfortunately I had to pay more to upgrade the case to one that the PSU could fit in.
Having said that the order process and communication from PCSpecialist was very good. Also this is the first time I've had this issue with an order and I've ordered a number of systems over the last year.
