Whilst very satisfied with the service received from CCL, generally, I am satisfied with the product with a couple of niggles. The CPU fan is the noisiest I have ever had and I am experiences some issued with peripheral ports (e.g. USB and HDMI ports occasionally fail to work). Bluetooth connectivity with mouse and keyboard is not as smooth as I am used to.

Nicely built and easy to use machine. For those upgrading from a very very old machine, ensure that you have a monitor that has an HDMI or USB, rather than a VGA connection!

David Lamb

Bought as an upgrade to my 10 year old CCL Windows 10 PC and very pleased with it so far. A higher spec chip set and more memory than before makes everything much quicker and easier to access. Hopefully, I'll get 10 years out of this PC before needing to changing again.

Really great, custom built exactly as requested, and really secure packaging to ensure safely delivered. Have used CCL before and was happy to continue to purchase customer built PCs from them - would highly recommend. Good choice of options when customising to get exactly what you want

So far, it has justified the leap of faith I took when I bought this desktop (tower) PC. I have not opened up the case, but it all feels nice and solid. It fits perfectly into the space allocated for it. Windows 11 (including Edge) was already loaded, so I had immediate access to the Internet. I had to instal Office 2021 from a disk to obtain access to Word, Excel etc, but that all went very smoothly. The machine runs fast and noiselessly, working well with my existing screen, keyboard and mouse. Once I have transferred some residual material from my old Windows XP computer, I expect to be able to do most things I want to do on a computer. That does not include "gaming", although a trial subscription to Norton 360 for Gamers is included. So, although I was not confident in my ability to upgrade my IT successfully, my fears have so far proved unfounded.

Very smart.

In the past I've bought components & built my own computers. Thought I would try the custom build this time. Not impressed. Spec wasn't quite what I wanted, but was able to modify to suit. CPU cooler fell off after a few days use. Looked as though the securing clips had been over-tightened. Was promised a replacement, but it hasn't arrived yet.

I bought this computer for my father who needed a new machine. I used the custom service so that CCL would build it to my specification (more RAM, extra hard disk, no windows OS). It arrived on time and well packaged with details of the soak tests that had been run. I installed my own OS (Ubuntu) which went without issue. Only problem was the optical drive, which Ubuntu failed to recognise but this turned out to be a loose power connector and was easily fixed.

Bought as an upgrade to be eligible for Windows 11. I was able to add the SSD, HDDs, DVD writer, video and sound cards from my old device and upgrade to Windows 11. The initial hiccups were sorted out with the help of the knowledgeable and very helpful sales staff. This is another excellent computer from CCL, who I have used for nearly 20 years. Top marks CCL!

Came with loose screw rattling inside and no product key for Windows 11. Flimsy, almost hidden switches on front panel edges and no get started instructions.

David

July 2022

Really pleased with our new PC, brilliant value for money when compared to other 'big name' PC companies. Customer service and support was also first class - a real human being actually answered the phone and knew exactly what advice to give. They even followed up later to check all was ok. The only thing we don't really like are the bright blue and the red flashing LED lights on the front of the PC - we have to have it on the desktop next to our screen and can be quite distracting, but no big deal really.

Always get computer stuff from CCL. First class products at very reasonable prices. No messing. Delivered on time. Best value on-site warranty. Would not consider going anywhere else.

Nigel Carter

Ok, the product itself is good, fast speed and good quality. Delivery was ahead of delivery date. The problem is the one which is an issue with lots of companies, if the product arrives and there is no problems then a 5 star rating is usually given. It's when you have queries and problems that you find out the quality of a company and how much they appreciate your custom. I had 3 issues with mine, 2 of which did not turn out to be actual faults whilst the third issue was. To cut a long story short, I dealt with 3 different people in customer services over a period of a month. Their "High Priority" email response took up to 7 working days to respond to and then queries within the emails were not addressed. Definitely got the impression they were busy and I was inconvenient to them. They did offer a refund but as I had spent weeks setting it up this was not a not an option. So in review, great product at a good price. Their customer service is the part that let them down in my case.

A brilliant PC, providing excellent performance and value for money: the best I've ever had.

Glyn

March 2022

Excellent service, both in ordering and delivery. Inclusion of extended warranty was pleasant surprise. To early to tell how it will perform but time will tell. As I use CAD and design software a lot I was slightly surprised to find on loading Sketchup and Blender they refused to run. Contacted CCL support but they were unable to suggest a solution. Suspect addition of a dedicated graphics card will resolve issue but would have thought this should not be necessary as I use a much older MSI mainboard without.

Ciara

Powerful enough pc at a reasonable price. Not so much a fan of the led config but that's purely cosmetic

Vaughan Wallis

March 2022

I am happy with the design which was easy was it to set up and use. The performance is stunning and has been updated with 2x 1TB internal drives. The build quality is excellent with plenty of spare power and data cables. The noise level is reasonable, except that the CPU fan hums which is somewhat distracting. Very pleased over-all.
