What can you tell me about this Windows 7 DVD?

Hello,
I was looking to buy a Windows 7 in eBay and I found this :
New Hologram Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit Full SP1 COA Product Key | eBay

Is there really such thing as described "LIMITED EDITION HARD TO FIND HOLOGRAM DVD"? Do you think it is genuine? I was sure there aren't OEM DVDs from Microsoft for Windows 7 and that you have to download it from the link provided in the tutorial in sevenforums (the oem installation tutorial).

Will it work on a new custom built PC? Because the description (and you can see in the picture) that it says something about refurbished PC

Doesn't look safe. Seems as if it will install a virus.

Why not get windows from eBay? Many top rated sellers that sell Windows with many Positive feedbacks.
They sell oem too but I was wondering what is this hologram dvd.. is it just like oem and I can install it on any pc? Or it has something to do with refurbished PCs?

Edit : I found some more:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Microsoft-Wi...item3a861e92ce
Is it real? It says it was taken from decommissioned pc.. so its retail? ? That cheap? I'm confused

And another one:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Windows-7-Pr...item2ecb300316 what do you think?

You have two clues.
1. ebay
2. $300.00 Retail operating system for $59.00
I don't know what else needs to be said.

You are right, these are too suspicious and I obviously won't buy (but I thought there was a catch that you might know about).

But what about versions like this : Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit 64 Bit Pro SP1 Full Version 2CDs New | eBay
this is a safe one, right ?

Many people go for the cheap buy on ebay, and end up with a counterfeit copy. Do not buy windows on ebay.
