Honestly it’s not hard to find cheap Windows 10 keys. Kinguin and Ebay have keys for very cheap too. Ebay has them for five bucks.

Sounds exactly like the people in r/microXXXXXXXXXswap. Whom sells MSDN keys. Which are illegal to sell. (X'd out the name)

The company you linked says you get "Includes a 1-PC, unlimited lifetime licence"

If you are running an older version of Windows you can still upgrade to 10 for free from Microsoft.

I used to pirate but just learned theres a very simple way of using command prompt and inserting the key. Even my very non-techie friend was able to follow the step by step guide and activate windows

Maybe I'm wrong but the way I see those cheap keys is that if you want to buy a legit key just buy the official Microsoft ones. 3rd party keys do work but they were never exactly meant for consumer use afaik. Not to mention some of them could be stolen. I would prefer to use a script and permanently sign my hardware instead of giving my money to the wrong people.

This would only be hot if 100% legit. I got one from Kinguin not to long ago, fair bit cheaper than this. Worked fine. Had to activate by phone like they said I would, only took 3 minutes though. Worth it for saving $100.

But that just it these seem to be official Microsoft ones or at least that how I see it maybe I'm wrong but how does a legit company sell nonofficial ones and get away with it

Yeah but those aren't official ones, this is a legit computer company selling I believe to be official ones. Again if they ain't official ones then how does a legit company be able to sell non ones? And notice they are saying it's on sale 79% off regular price

You will get a legitimate usable key and it will properly connect to Microsoft's Server, but the keys themselves are not retail keys. Not retail keys are licensed under specific conditions. If you're buying it from a website, those conditions are not being met. The key may work for as long as you have your system, but it may not. Microsoft could cancel the keys at any time.

Europe does allow the resale of keys, but only keys that are no longer active. You'll pay more for those ones.

You'll be getting the same licensing whether you're buying from this place or from eBay or Kinguin.

I looked into it and this store looks legit. This is the webstore for the best-selling computer-based magazine in the UK. I highly doubt they would sell third-party licenses, and if they do, you have an entire company you can hold accountable. I very highly doubt they'd be selling unofficial keys considering they probably run Microsoft-sponsored (and other large tech companies) ads in their magazine.

:facepalm:
There's no point in doing this at all (both buying the "key" and bragging about getting ripped off), you're just paying for piracy. Just pirate on your own and it costs $0 instead.

Exactly there no way a legit company would sell non official Microsoft ones, these have be official Microsoft ones, yes OEM version but so what that still a really good price
