Should I buy Windows 10 for $35? *Amazon*

Hi, I’m planning a Windows 10 key. However, when shopping I’ve stumbled this key for $35? Of course, I knew this looked fishy but looking the reviews, they were all good; I just wanted to make sure. As a bonus, amazon is pretty trustworthy and I know I will have their support. What do you think? Should I buy from here or should I buy the one from Microsoft? Thanks!

Way cheaper on ebay. Look for sellers with excellent feedback on same item.

I wouldn't be so trustworthy about Amazon. Anybody can list anything on their website. There's so much fake stuff on Amazon it's not even funny.

How long have you used it for? I heard they only last for a year because Microsoft eventually locks the products key since it’s stolen.

Oh, so they are the same? I thought the cheaper one on eBay were worse because of the cheap prices. I guess I’ll look into it. Or should I buy a legit one? Ease the headaches lol.

If you're paying under $100 for home, it's fake.
Pro is going to be $150.

Either pay full price or KMS it. No point in paying a 3rd party schmuck $5-40 for a illegit key.

This is true and there ain't no way around it. And, everyone knows what the legit price is roughly
If they thumb you down I will up it just because

If you're going to pay $5/10 to a rando internet guy... you might as well just pirate it. Either pay full price or nothing at all.

Tons of awful advice posted here. Like the other poster said. Get a key on ebay for like 1-10$ from a good seller. I got a key from ebay since like 2014 when i built my pc and its still working and valid perfectly today. I even bought 2 more like 2 years ago, one for a laptop and one for my friends pc. Both still valid and working flawless.
😎Thanks RFD😎

No one said they wouldn't work.
They only stop working if you try to reactivate at a later date (for example after a format).
Once activated always activated.

But that's not the point. A 3rd party is profiting off your piracy.
You may as well save the $1-10 and KMS it.

I only bought keys because it was convenient. I paid $10 for a MAK that I used on dozens of machines.
Then it got killed. So now I KMS.

Better to donate the money to the cracktivation developers than to pay money to pirate. (and by developers, I don't mean the guys who takes someone else's code and repackages it in a GUI with spinning skulls)
A working key is not the same as a legitimate software licence.

This is terrible advice. There is enough malware on pirated software but to potentially risk getting malware at an OS level is insane.

Just buy a key on Ebay and download the Windows iso from MS or buy a legit copy from Microsoft.
stubhub and clearly.ca suck, like really suck

Only if you're the worst pirate I've ever heard of.
