Not liking the OEM/ 16GIG limit rules

2 November 2015
Summary: Had to purchase Win 7 Pro RETAIL version to get pass all this corp money grab mess. Really, there is no reason to limit it to 16GIGs, but to make people have to re-buy the product...
Pros: It is not Win 8 or 10. Does not turn my computer into a apps tablet Not as much adware or spyware included
Cons: I didn't know this but do to licensing issues Windows 7 home Edition 64 OEM edition is limited to recognizing only 16 gigs of ram. Had to rebuy Win 7 Pro to use more than 16 gigs of ram. Also, upgraded my motherboard and hard drive and can not reload this product. you can only load it once or not...
Summary: For business use. We are not going the Windows 8 route. Bought these as standbys to install in new PCs, if needed. They are OEM versions and I have not installed them yet. Exactly as advertized, shipped fast.
Cons: I've purchase OEM Windows 7 a few times and have gotten the screen that says this isn't original Windows 7 software each time. I thought this is for builders of 1 time PC's but evidently not. I'll think twice before purchasing OEM products from NEWEGG even if it a Microsoft problem.
Summary: Hard to read COA was the only flaw found.
Pros: It works like Win 7 is meant to...
Cons: They did not provide a microscope to read the #$#$^#$^!!! COA!! MS should be charged for causing un-due eyestrain. thus 3 eggs. I mean... TINY PRINT.. on a mufti-color background? what's next? Print the COA on microdot?
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...
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.
Cons: For $199.99 I should be able to put it on my 2 computers. I have read over the box and all the papers it came I can't find any thing where it says 1 computer only. Major Rip off I don't know if its all windows 7 codes or just from newegg but this should be mentioned in the specs on the product page.
