warning on box should be on ad

blue,, TigerDirect.com
7 May 2014
  • Summary: although it may work, as a newbie I did not realize the intensity of the warning about not using this product except for first builds, and the demand, apparently not usually respected about using it only with a Windows proprietary install program. if you are upgrading read the advertising to the bottom and risk the risks only if you are comfortable with them. otherwise, as I did, return costing you both ways shipping. not cost effective...

Product Key Nightmare

Quinton R., Newegg
13 April 2014
  • Pros: I purchased Win 7 because I am familiar and did not want Win 8 because of bad reviews.
  • Cons: The Product Key is nearly impossible to read. It is on a label, and the actual product key is on about a 1/2" x 1/2" area of the label. 8's & B's look alike as well as G's & 6's. I used magnifying glass, and finally took a photo so I could blow it up. I got about 20 different possibilities. Asked my wife and son to write down what they thought it was, but nothing worked. I called Microsoft, but they said they could not help since I bought from a third party. I called ...

  • Summary: Went to this from XP and jumped over Vista. Works good, less bulky then vista. No real complaints. Good option if you want to play all games out there while linux catches up. Might switch when it does.
  • Pros: Actual upgrade from XP, good design
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: always owned windows. thought about going with Windows 8 for this new build, but it's really more geared towards touch-screen technology. not what i want for my desktop system. i'll stick with the OS i already know inside-out. it's just easy.
  • Pros: widely used, so no software compatibility issues
  • Cons: still overpriced

  • Summary: Ultimate is 7 HP, without a few features. Not going to pay 200 bucks for that? Go with 7 HP, best bang-for buck also. Better than Vista. Why vista sucks: *Explorer windows that regularly freeze up *A proprietary web browser, Internet Explorer 7, that comes packaged with the system and cannot be uninstalled or deleted. *400+ MB RAM usage right off the bat. *Built-in DRM to restrict a users ability to do most anything.
  • Pros: 16 gigs of ram limitation., Good OEM money saver!, Better than any other OS.
  • Cons: None

"Overrated OS, same issues as before."

HisGeekiness, CNET
29 April 2012
  • Pros: 1. Nice interface. Pretty, easy to work with, and productive. 2. Better driver support than Vista 3. Lots of apps
  • Cons: 1. Remains quite slow. Scarcely different from Vista and loses performance over time. Inferior to Linux OS speed. 2. Security. Despite Microsoft's improvements, there is still a LOT of malware.

  • Pros: It is much faster than vista and has a lot more drivers and capabilities. Libraries, speed.
  • Cons: Crashed two laptops, both running the same exact format.

  • Conclusion: I needed Windows to run other programs and sometimes it runs slow. I was a little disappointed, but I am still using it due to necessity.
