None of the 5 keys bought from new egg work!

Robert G., Newegg
29 January 2016
  • Summary: Windows 8 kinda sucks in general but spending money on invalid licenses is bad no matter what the product is.
  • Pros: Price was reasonable.
  • Cons: These keys did not get immediately used. They were purchased much arhead of time because of newegg's deal. Now after opening them, none of the keys are accepted from the 5 purchased thru new egg. Because they weren't installed within 30 days, I can't even complain to newegg online that they are d...

Stick to 7 or buy 7

Joseph S., Newegg
8 July 2014
  • Summary: I never had VISTA but, this is looking like worst. I heard 7 was just a reboot of XP. Microsoft needs to talk to people that use computers. I think their marketing team just uses tablets and phones and said "Hey instead of people always wishing their phone could do more like there desk/laptop lets...
  • Pros: Runs Direct X 11 for newer video cards which is the only reason I left XP. Newegg delivered it fast as always.
  • Cons: Interface. The new Win 8 interface makes your whole computer like a smartphone interface! Get free app immediately so you don't have to deal with Metro that sets the interface back to 7ish interface. Then set everything like pictures to viewer and videos to iTunes but not set to XBOX!!! I don't o...

Beyond Satisfied

Adam B., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Pros: Everyone always beats down on Windows 8, but I like this operating system so much. After the first half hour of dreading learning pretty much everything over again, its totally worth it. Would recommend to anyone looking for an upgrade.
  • Cons: Slight learning curve, but nothing too intense.

don't do it

Michael C., Newegg
16 March 2014
  • Summary: This product is terrible. I've hated it since day one. It's completely different. It's designed for the mobile crowd, probably good for your kids It focuses on touch screen blocks and tabs for navigating and apps (which you dont need any of if you're using a desktop.
  • Pros: good for touch screen users
  • Cons: feels completely different than other windows versions hard to learn slower boot time

  • Pros: Love it, much faster than Windows 7.
  • Cons: The start page is stupid, it's all about getting people to use tablets, and personally I miss the start button.

Good software

Anastasios. N., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: However there are third party applications where you can get the same desktop as windows 7. That makes it simple to work with if you don't like the tiles and moving the mouse around the edges to get to the menus. And, some of them are free!
  • Pros: Windows 8 is not the terrible software that many claim. It boots up fast, shuts down quickly, and is very stable. I have not had any problems with it at all.
  • Cons: The start up screen with the tile interface.
