Windows 7: Question Regarding Product Keys

Question Regarding Product Keys

*** Admin, if I'm not supposed to be asking these types of questions, please delete and let me know so I don't ask again. ***

I'm just curious if the Windows 7 Ultimate keys that people are selling on eBay are legit or not. I see them ranging from $15 to $30.

Is there a way to verify a product key?

Probaby not legit. A member last week bought Key & DVD from ebay that Microsoft says was invalid Only Microsoft can verify a valid key So it cannot be checked ahead of time Buyer Beware

Yes, it is too good to be true. I actually did a Google search and it looks like some people are selling keys from their MSDN subscription. While the key may work fine for some time, if MS finds out, then your key will be deactivated or something like that.

I almost bought 3.

A subscription that ranges from $250-$350 per year which gives you access to Windows clients (XP, Vista and Windows 7...multiple keys...all versions), Windows Servers (2003, 2008, R2 releases....multiple activation keys) and Office (2003, 2007,2010).

When you are planning to buy more than 1 copy of Windows, or Windows and Office for 1 computer, it's often cheaper to go the technet route.
