I've used G2A.com before, but I've never bought a Windows key from them, do these legitimately work? People on LinusTechTips forums are saying they do, just wondering if anyone here has had a successful experience with these keys, as it's such a bargain at around £12!

The website is legit however it does depend upon the seller. I think you can pay extra for protection.

BUT honestly, for that price do you think they are genuine keys?

Posted something similar on LinusTechTips, and many users are saying it is safe, and there's a guarantee option for 79p, so I may just go for it. A lot of people have purchased it successfully apparently.

Bought the code and entered it during the installation, and it worked fine! Checked if it shows as 'genuine copy' on properties, and it does! Well chuffed, Windows 8.1 Pro for £13.71!
Would I be able to post this as a deal, or will it not be eligible?

This looks like a great deal, where did you get the install disk, can it be downloaded?

Managed to post the deal, but a mod kindly took it down and told me G2A aren't UK based. So keep that in mind if anyone buys from them.

ordered. the cheapest seller is sold out, but the 2nd cheapest still had some, so went for that one. Had more feedback as well.

Hello, I was looking around the web for some feedback from people who bought a copy of Windows on G2A. After 1 year didn't you have any problems ? Did you upgrade to Windows 10 ? Thanks for your time, have a good day

They sell MSDN keys which are obtained for free using MSDN admin accounts.

They work but will eventually be blacklisted and they are illegally resold on places like G2A as they are mean't for business and education purposes.

Google it.
