I'm surprised that PC World of all places makes their ecommerce website look hardly any different than all those scammy black/grey market Microsoft key selling sites.

That being said, this one does check out as being legitimately tied to PC World and is blogged about themselves: https://www.pcworld.com/article/3562330 ... etail.html

How can that be? If MS sells it for 260$ why would there be keys for 2$

If you have a Windows 7 computer or a key (on the side of the desktop or at the bottom of the laptop), you can use that serial key to install Windows 7 and then upgrade to Windows 10 for free. The whole free upgrade system still works and it's completely legal.
0 tolerance for BS.

If I downvote, chances are it's less about the deal, and more about OP's inability to take criticism and constantly favoring their deal due to their ego.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

I wouldn't trust $2 keys from eBay and from unknown sellers.

They're pirated keys, usually from selling MSDN.

This (I'm fairly certain) will pass a software audit. Obviously a $2 key won't.
They do work though (mostly). But if you're going to pirate something, why pay for it when KMS can do the same thing for free.

Depends on how you feel about it i guess. Those keys are stolen from OEM copies that don't generally redeem the keys as they are preactivated installations. Selling/buying them means you are in violation of Microsoft's ToS and they could nerf your key at any time. That said, that's very unlikely.

This is the cheapest I have seen a 100% legit standalone windows 10, but haven't really been looking.

I'm pretty sure it's institutions buying bulk licenses and selling the extras

Buying it for the exorbitant price of $0.00?

Edit: I guess he did receive 0 quantity of them so that's a fair price.

Most are from Dreamspark (or whatever they call it nowadays).
Someone buys an MSDN sub and sells out all the keys associated with it.

I've had PLENTY of keys killed in my life.

Cheapest I know of.

Which wouldn't help since this is also against the EULA. Plus a good way to get your "extras" killed.
