Really like these, but being a Windows User and the OS version is an issue.
What, Windows 10?
From what I understand its Chinese Version and cant be changed, you need to re-buy licence.


It will be the Chinese version but it's very easy to replace with the English version. I've done it twice this year. It's only a licensing issue, and as long as you chose the correct version to replace it with, there should be no problem.

Gearbest are on the of worst companies from China but they seem to be sponsored here all the time.
Lightinthebox have a great customer understanding but you never see them here.
Gearbest always have problems
Got to agree about lightinthebox, their customer service is outstanding, but I've never had a problem with Gearbest.
Ordered headphones, nothing arrived. Raised paypal issue, Gearbest asked if we can close issue as it can still arrive. Nothing arrived Paypal will not open issue again and Gearbest do not aswer emails.


I guess everyone's experience is different. I've ordered probably half a dozen times, and everything's turned up in good time and good order.

It's been this price for weeks tbh, I've had my eye on it but not 100% convinced, tried the keyboard in Curry's and it didn't feel all that good.
Ruffuz - what's better about the one you posted other than it has an SSD? The one in the deal has a better processor no?
Ahh, I see it has a NVIDIA graphics card. I guess if you game then that one is better.

SSD will give much better experience than slightly faster cpu.
Graphic card is just a small bonus.

Yeah good price this but a bit limiting with 1GB RAM :|
This is actually an ok deal, it's just monkeys which see windows and think it's bad. They don't realise they run 100% full windows. No cut to basics android, or non multi tasking overpriced ipad tat.

Good luck getting Forza Horizon 3 to install on your computer if you buy it to play on PC. Been trying the past week and it always stalls at 43.50GB downloaded with no sign of moving. Microsoft don't want to know and Turn 10 doesn't seem to be able to do anything about it. Stupid Windows Store. Great game when it works though! Lol
Game installs fine for my but crashes ten second into the game :-(
Mine installed and plays fine

I have one of these too. I only used it briefly for browsing and it runs bittorrent fine. I don't understand why the manufacturers insist on putting the fully bloated Windows 10 on it. It would make more sense and make the things 100% more usable to have Windows XP on them, maybe Windows 7 at a push. But having Windows 10 with the Store, the whole Metro interface interchangeable with desktop/tablet view, Windows firewall with advanced settings, all admin tools, Windows defender and an overall system that's at least 5 times the size Windows XP's was is just insane. Either make the ROM big enough and put a better processor and more RAM in these tablets or don't bother making them. Or at least make RAM expandable by the user. 1GB of RAM struggles to handle Android 7 in tablets and you're expecting it to run the full Windows 10 ecosystem plus whatever the user installs themselves? It's a rip-off.
One day when I can be bothered I'll clean the dust off mine, wipe it clean inside and install Android x86, Windows XP and/or Windows 7 lite and dual boot into a much faster more enjoyable device that can run most apps and has about twice the user data space as these overbloated slabs of brick.
The one good thing to them (at least on mine) is that they come with a full sized USB port meaning you can install Android, Linux, or Windows XP Windows 7 lite onto a stick and set it to boot from the USB bypassing Windows 10 and being able to run any of these systems and others direct from your live USB stick. You're still going to be hampered by the slowdown of using a USB as the host of your system, WiFi connections might prove impossible, driver issues probable, and although you bypass Windows 10 to an extent by booting straight to your USB it will still be chugging away in the background at a lower power consumption level and still with 1GB of RAM maximum, which is why I'd favour just wiping the whole dammed thing and replacing it with a more manageable system. And if it doesn't work, who cares? Toss it in the bin which is where it'll end up anyway if you persist in running the ever-expanding-in-size Windows 10 that grinds it to a halt if you do anything overly-strenuous like start up a YouTube video on it.
Being a Windows 10 tablet it's not the best tablet for kids. I've had one of these for about a year and it's so slow I never bother to use it. An android tablet is 100 times better
I've got one of these, for the price it does the job but is slow and the touchscreen in landscape never calibrates properly. Was great for loading movies on for the kids on holiday though.
arggghhhh....such a piece of garbage. slow, laggy, vague touchscreen and the best thing about it is how fast it will start to crash and freeze.
I have a 1gb 10 inch tablet with otherwise identical specs, the 1gb alone makes this almost unusable.
I also have a linx 10 inch 2gb version, which chuggs along miles better, it's on the lowest possible end of usable, whereas the 1gb is totally unusable. I use it as monitor for my.cctv ( it dials in to the DVR via a web browser and the app is very light, it still struggles).
I would say save your hard earned pennies and get something with 2gb.

Yeah, i cant really be bothered to anyway lol I paid £330 checking me receiptHow do you check the warranty left and then how do you go through web based system to get the full 12 months if it is less, please mate?

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/checkwarranty

It tells you time left and gives you the dispute option. When the system is working that is. Do a PDF print of the eBuyer invoce to upload as evidence.

There is also the "HP Support" app for firmware and software updates that's pre-installed and has a section on it that can check the warranty and links you to the above to dispute.

http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6513962 is this a good deal, I have no idea about laptops

The processor in the Argos deal is a "Intel Pentium n3710" which, combined with a traditional (mechanical) hard drive will make the Argos laptop a bit (quite a bit) sluggish. It IS a big hard drive though. The Ebuyer one I linked to above is about 50% faster (CPU-wise) and, together with SSD will be much faster in general use. Question: do you need a big hard drive? If not, go for the Ebuyer laptop IF you prefer to buy new (rather than second-hand). Ok?

Not bad for 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM. I personally wouldn't worry about the non-FHD but others will. Cheaper here (same company?) £370

OR this one which I think is better value at £290 from Ebuyer. CPU is a little slow but offset by SSD. Bargain. If you can live with Ebuyer.

Look at this post it seems I have to replace the old laptop
It's been this price for a while on the Currys website, I nearly bought it when they had a 10% discount code but was hoping for a better deal at the last bank holiday.
some of the second hand ones have only been used once or twice.
save yourself several hundred pounds.
let me guess what I would do?

Hmm lets think here. Ebay second hand vs Currys brand new? Nope. Not seeing it.
This is also available Reserve & Collect on the Currys website (I'm picking one up tonight) and theres £30 quidco on laptops over £500 currently (seems to include Reserve & Collect).

Have this now, not sure I am enjoying the lack of apps at all :(


Makes me chuckle when the uneducated see the bee all and end all in a 'Store' and how many apps that provides, and that's all that matters.

In the end if you are buying a Linx 1010B for an app store alone, its not the product for you, suggest you buy an Android or Apple tablet, they are for people who only want to run apps from one 'store'.

These are pure 'Store' figures... I can offer the links if you wish to read the articles yourself.
Android Play Store - 2,280,000 (July 2016)
Apple App Store - 1,400,000 (January 2015)
Windows Store - 669,000+(September 2015)

Now for those who can think outside the box, Steve Bulmer publicised that there were 4 million native Windows applications back at CES in 2010... So Windows had over 2x as many 'apps' available 5 years previous... enough said.

You need to look at what you need from a device and buy to your needs. Don't buy a product and then moan that the product is poor because you purchased the incorrect product and then it doesn't meet your requirements.

In the end the Linx 2in1's are good value for money and for the price are decent at what they do.

I've just clicked on the "get deal" link and the price is displayed in GBP. Previously when I've bought stuff on Gearbest its been priced in dollars. Is this a change from Gearbest? I assume I'll still be charged in dollars and this is a conversion of dollars into GBP?

£500 spend at gearbest...you are far braver than me....
Nothing wrong for spending for a very fine speced machine!
I paid even more for this earlier... and this laptop is great... it comes chinese but not hard to get a english 10 on it licensed!
its not the product thats the issue its the retailer and warranty (or rather lack of a worthwhile one from Gearbest)
If you have a problem with this £500 laptop from Gearbest then you may as well consider the money gone....

For the specs and built quality and price... i doubt there will be many issues... also this has been around for a while, never heard any major issues from anyone!

I understand £500 is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you check alternatives of the same specs, you are looking for around 50% surcharge...

I used gearbest for over a year, and dont remember having an issue with any product so far... cant speak for everyone, but i choose what i buy searching unbiased reviews from different part of the world... not just from a single popular channel/site!
One more thing of note, which many of you might not be aware of... if you purchase this item from **ANY** company using Paypal, you lose all Consumer Credit Act 1974 - Section 75 credit law consumer rights. Buy anything over £100 I advise you NOT to use Paypal, and pay for the item directly with a foreign exchange credit card.

I'd prefer the same with out the graphics card but other bells and whistles. Do people really look to mid-priced laptops for high end gaming? All I ever reading about PC gaming is how building a rig or at least buying a desktop is the way and laptops are always a silly option to take. Take out the graphics card and for the same price something more useful coule be put in to make this a more attractive mid-price option.


I've always been the same, but I bought an Alienware due to limited space, being away for work 1/4 of the year and the resale value which desktops don't have (less you scrap them individually). I got a good deal on the Alienware but otherwise yeah desktops are 100% better - it's just most people are nervous at building one when it's mega easy now. I'll be building one when I move to a bigger place.
CarlottaMonroe
A second hard drive for more storage? A better screen/processor, etc, more RAM? I'm just guessing - Not that any of those are bad in this laptop,. I just wonder why a graphics card in a laptop is such a selling point compared to other things. Unless you really are gaming on a laptop, in which case spending more than this is surely mandatory any way for a decent experience?


The graphics card and other specs on this laptop are good enough for running a lot of games. You aren't obviously going to run AAA games at 1080p with a playable framerate but the appeal here is the portability. If someone wants a gaming rig a desktop is always the best option but this will give you acces to a lot of games to play on the go if you need it.

There are plenty options out there for what you are asking. Drop the graphics and get more storage and better processor etc. £550 is a fair budget for an everyday laptop. It's going to get minimum requirements for a gaming laptop though. Hope you find what you want. It's a minefield picking the right one!

What would you prefer over a graphics card? What would you class as more useful?

BOXNUC6CAYSAJ - £192.33 on Amazon inc shipping (£186.33+ £6.00 delivery), at the time of writing, (though I note the seller has only 83% from only 105 total ratings, so I would probably go with the Ballicom deal, personally, if the CPU spec meets your needs)

To all the cold voters. Please share where you could get a comparable box for less money

Cold. Dont need to share anything.
£200 for a weak quad core, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a box that has the bare minimum of ports (ethernet, USB, HDMI, no type C, no displayport).

Looking to china I can find mini PCs for a similar price with 4GB of RAM, 120GB of proper SSD, a stronger quad core (N4200), and the only thing they lose is the VGA port. Still got licensed windows.

The kicker here might be wifi, this NUC includes an AC grade wifi card which you haven't mentioned.

I'm not taking it personally. Would like to see the greater wisdom behind the auto cold clicking. This is a deal. If someone can point to a better deal then that's what I want to know.
Heat given. A quick look around and can't find this model any cheaper.

i bought the 8.9 version of this on monday, received on tuesday and for the last 2 days it has been working great. can do everything i can do on my pc and netbook on this. its full windows 10 and even comes with a cable to use usb drives in it. it would be better with a keyboard but as a tablet for browsing ect it is fast and works great. im glad i bought it and with a year warranty you cant go wrong. buy it.


I was hesitant, so thanks for the feedback. Going to make my decision today
Hubby and I bought 2 of these via this deal. They are doing 10% off if you buy 2 or more, so we got them for £72 - £36 each. Cracking deal.

The main downside is 1GB RAM,
this could become a problem as you'll become dependant on virtual memory and these types of devices can be bad with 2GB RAM.
You have to basically know what you're getting into.
http://www.camelcamelcamel.fr/uk/charts/B01BHUSDZK

I agree that in 2017 only 1 gb of ram is borderline. Most cheap android phones also have 2gb. Since a tablet is expected to be more graphic intensive... might be trouble.
I think its fair to say, you get what you pay for. I would advice paying more, be it the processor or memory, it works but rapidly slows for a multitude of reasons.

Well.... Would you really want to play it while only being able to see 10-15ft infront of you thought?? - Kinda bad, but I suppose, at least it's sort of possible on lower spec things. Nice find.

Will this work with ark survival evolved?
Not a chance mate... Not only is that game not very optimised this thing wouldn't even run it on the lowest settings... You'll need something with more GPU power and CPU power. You'll be looking to spend something like £500+ but there are some decent laptops around the £650 mark that will play it well enough.

If you want something with a little more behind it and still on the lower end of the gaming laptops, try looking at the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7569) I think with the right sale it drops to about £967, but hat will play all current games and has great battery life, note that unless you pay for the extremely expensive one, you'll want to swap the TN panel out for a better Samsung one or something which will cost about £40-£50 and take 3mins to do.

There is a cheaper one of the same laptop, it's about £749 which will also run Ark. Look into it, but I'll opt for the better model which is a couple hundred more. Not the 4k IPS panel, the one between the cheapest and most expensive. You can upgrade the panel with ease, if you can't someone you know can with little effort for sure.

Ark is not one of those games that you can play on a lower spec laptop in general. Good Luck.

I've been using this for a while now. Does the job well.
I really like Bitvise SSH client which wraps the whole thing up in a nice gui which I find much more complete and intuitive than Putty. Easy to do port forwards, key management and SFTP browsing etc. Also comes as a portable app so I have it in my dropbox for use on multiple machines.

That's great but I use Putty to connect to servers I manage remotely. :)

Ummm annoying that you don't appear to be able to make it auto-close on logoff or be able to create a shortcut to a host (both things Putty can do).
You could visit https://github.com/spodskubka/RemoteTerminal/ where the developer is active and making progress with changes and bug fixes. A feature request is welcome and something simple as a shortcut or live tile for hosts shouldn't be too hard to add, not the developer tho so good luck :)

just a word of warning to people, the Windows 10 version forever gets stuck when downloading and it's 125gb file
I had Windows store problems....spent time trying to fix it. The Microsoft advice to resolve the issue? Re-install Windows.
Did you manage to get it downloaded in the end? Microsoft are pathetic, I could do with a fresh install of Windows but it will revert me back to Windows 8 then I'd have to pay for Windows 10 as the free upgrade expired last year

have you upgraded to win10 already then just download the ISO from microsoft and it will automaticly activate

any new code? both not working

They expire every few minutes, the only way to be sure the code will work is to get it from their Facebook page and use immediately. There is always one on their page but it updates every few minutes and the old one is expired. They implemented that system to try to ensure people were getting the codes direct from them rather than off a forum elsewhere.
Should have been called Gears of Bore, or Gears of Chore. I'm really not a fan. Acutely played all 4 games and I really don't know why they are so hotly rated. Cover mechanics are a mess and I feel divorced from what I'm telling JD to do and what he actually chooses to do.

As a sony owner that made me laugh... then I remembered Playstaion Now, that we don't have EA access, that GWG kicks ps+ month on month.... I am sad again...We have Killzone and Knack as exclusives though.... have that xbox owners...
I hear that Horizon is decent too, also Persona 5, Nioh, Bloodborne etc etc
Horizon is bloody awesome
I got bored after about 7 hours, Hioh is more my cup of tea, GOTY so far for me.
7 hours? So I assume you haven't left Nora yet?
Just too many things put me off from playing longer, i intend to go back to it once i have completed current games im playing such as FH3 Nioh & P5.
The things that annoyed me were the Inability to Sell or even Drop Treasure Boxes, Having No Lock-On Feature in Combat,Confusing Waypoint Navigation,Tacky Armor, also The AI & Lip Sync are terrible and its hard to be immersed when its like that.
You can drop treasure boxes now, waypoints not too bad if you use the touchpad to confirm the correct route, the armor gets much better the more shards you earn and depending on the machine loot, the AI only gets "dodgy" from experience if you camp in one area and want the enemy to come to you (especially the case with human AI, the machine AI from personal experience is so much better than the human AI), and lip sync is nowhere near as bad as other games like Mass Effect Andromeda. I do agree that no lock on combat does make the game harder at first but you get used to it (as you continually upgrade to better weapons and equip better mods) and then the combat becomes awesome, the game requires more of a tactical approach instead of running straight in, and that becomes clear as you progress (for example when you get on the way to a place called "Sunfall" there are two big (I won't spoil what they are so I'll just call them...) mother effers on the way and if you tried to run and gun they will literally rip you ten new ones. Took me 15 mins initially to get past them)

That list's validity is debatable. Of the titles I've heard of at least a few there are not exclusives or are also available on iOS/Android, or Windows.

They have been or are exclusive in some form, they are colored on the actual page, showing how they are exclusive but obviously the colors don't carry here after i copy/paste.

Thanks for this OP! I wonder does it come with a BT dongle or should I buy one?
Worth nothing that any Microsoft Xbox One controller will work as a wired controller under Windows 10. Only the newer ones support bluetooth, so your Windows 10 device will need bluetooth for the wireless connection...
Here's the link to the official site: http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-on-windows/accessories/connect-and-troubleshoot-xbox-one-bluetooth-issues-windows-10
I received mine - it's really dirty, just like a controller you would expect from CEX! Also it's the original model 1537 in a 1708 box. So no headphone socket and no bluetooth for me :(
I have put in a return with eBay...

cant seem to find a proper UK stockist for this Jumper EZBook 3 Pro

I believe it is the better laptop for the price to spec ratio as of now and many who bought it recently as of the last week or two are surprised at the build and overall quality and adequate power based on the the cpu coupled with 6gigs of RAM
You won't find a UK stockist at the moment, but it can be bought from gearbest.com then select Hong Kong for a cheaper price which is around £190 now and the price will keep changing and will only get higher. Agreed it's a risk buying from abroad just remember to use PayPal and add the insurance whilst checking out..

There's a reason these were returned lol

I agree.

Sometimes, it is just unwanted. A lot times there is a reason.

since the AMD CPU is not completely incompetent, increase RAM to 8GB, add a SSD, the laptop will be good enough for general usage, web browsing and office work.

But those upgrades adds to the price too especially SSD nowadays are quite expensive compare to one year ago.

After those two upgrades, you are looking at about a cost of £250.

Let's say you want to upgrade ssd. Is this simple with this model?
i cannot imagine it would be.
most newer hp laptops have around 10 screws on the bottom casing and then you simply remove the bottom and the hard drive is held in by another 4 screws.
but then you will need to either clone the original hard drive to your ssd or create a bootable uefi usb to reinstall windows.
but putting that all aside i have to ask myself..... WHY!
Why would you want to purchase such a useless spec laptop and upgrade it with a ssd ?
makes no sence
SSDs do make a huge difference to these. If you can source a 120gb for £30 or a 240gb for £55, the laptop should be a reasonable performer. You can also buy a £3 caddy to put the old mechanical hard drive in for back up storage. Seeing as laptops that come with SSD generally cost over £500, this can make sense.
It depends what you want from a laptop I suppose, granted browsing maybe be sluggish on one of these, but an SSD would at least make the rest of the experience half decent, if you are just going to do some spreadhseet / wordprocessing / accountancy stuff for instance. If you work from home using a remote connection then also the speed makes no difference really (I know people that just log into their work pcs and browse from there as it's faster - be careful what sites you go to though!)

It was the case.

Thing has moved on a little bit.

laptop with full HD + 256GB SSD can be found at around £350, not £500.
The full HD will not be the best one as you can imagin.

And nowadays, SSD price has shooting up the roof due to NAND shortage.

If you or me sold counterfeit goods in the blatant way that they do then we'd be facing jail time soon enough.

If you or me sold counterfeit goods in the blatant way that they do then we'd be facing jail time soon enough.

Did you report the seller to the police or trading standards? Do you expect them to be psychic?!
This is probably one of Amazon's less dodgy products nowadays.

Looks like it was a price glitch. I did wonder why the i5 version cost more!

Looks like I got a good deal then

Fantastic deal. Shame I missed it
damn, missed it, I added it to my favourites and started looking at other deals for comparison, then the price went back up. Was ready to purchase. grrr. Must have been a price glitch.

As im not very tech minded, I have been looking at another laptop same price range wondered if I could get your thoughts on it compared to this, is this 1 the better option over the ASUS I found last night? http://www.ebuyer.com/757280-asus-x555qg-laptop-silver-black-x555qg-xx007t

The IdeaPad was the better of the two.
Screen: 1080p vs. 768p
CPU (passmark): 5256 vs. 3864
Both have a weak GPU but the Intel 620 on the IdeaPad is superior to the AMD M430.

£500 spend with Gearbest..... good luck if you have a problem with that order or have to use the warranty. Braver than me OP

Ditto. And i speak from experience. Always found their delivery reliable (use the basic delivery for the best chance of avoiding duty) but if a fault develops after 28 days, then you enter a world of pain. The warranty is more or less meaningless. At best you'll have to return it by courier, tracked at your own expense which isn't cheap. I now only buy high value goods supplied from the UK. On the positive side, the Cube i35 appears to be a really good Surface Laptop alternative, so i fully understand why it might be so tempting.

If you opt for expedited delivery then most probably. If you're willing to wait then the risk drops.

I've not been hit with import duty yet but admittedly I've not spent this much on one item.

These deals will never get too hot for that reason alone but if you're in the niche market of being a patient, risk taking, bargain hunting, shoulder shrugging if it goes awry sort of person that wants a mid level notebook then this is, here, is the deal for you.
As this will be shipped from China I suspect you need to consider adding import duties on top of that price which could be another £100

Why would you want to upgrade to 10 and then regret all your life? Windows 7 for life for me.
Gaming and Gaming only. Its the only reason to have Windows. Until ALL dev's have a Linux version :)

Or use the Creators Edition update download from MS and choose "clean install". Win 10 will always be free via a clean install.
Do you have a source that confirms this?
AFAIK, clean install of Win10 Creators auto activates only if you'd previously activated the original Win10 on the same hardware.

To clear things up.

The original Windows 10 release only provisioned for a free upgrade from existing installs of Windows 7 or 8.x for the first 12 months. Things have changed, and you can safely ignore anyone advising this now.

The current version of Windows 10 allows for a clean install, and you can activate it during install using your existing Windows 7 or 8.x key. Previously activated Windows 10 installed will be automatically re-activated using the same keys, or without any key at all if you've signed in with a Microsoft account at login.

If you sign in with a Microsoft account, your activation key will be linked to the account for that machine and no key will be required to activate further clean installs - just select the skip option at product key prompt during installation.

If you have a OEM machine from Dell, HP etc, you'll automatically get a Windows 10 upgrade key using the OEM pre-install keys. These are automatically used with restore discs/partitions, and is linked to a cert embedded in the BIOS.
A side effect is that the COA sticker that has a product key attached to your machine can be used on a 2nd machine.

Once Windows 10 activated, the machine has a digital entitlement key assigned to it, and again if you sign in with a Microsoft account at login, you'll be able to do clean installs without the need of keys.

The loop-hole use of 'assistive technologies' is no longer a requirement for a free upgrade.
You can clean install (ISO to DVD/USB) and upgrade using the Windows 10 media creation tool, found at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209


Ok so try and figure this out my mum's laptop was on windows 7 until yesterday never upgraded to Windows 10 as I maintained it til windows 10 was stable for my mum to use it, I got the creators tool burned it to a USB then pulled the 64bit setup folder and started the upgrade to windows 10 while on still on the windows 7 desktop, after about 45 mins it confirmed a perfect activation.
I didn't bother doing the whole assistive technologies as it was too much time wasting.

indeed
a lot of new machines don't have a COA sticker
to get your re-usable product key, you need to use a keyfinder such as jellybean magical keyfinder (free app that takes a few seconds to install)

obviously you would do this BEFORE you upgrade to W10

Voted cold. Windows 10 is shocking and shouldn't even be free let alone cost anything, ruined my perfectly good laptop and now I'm having to buy another one.
How has an Operating system ruined your laptop to the point you need to buy a new one? Fair enough not everyone likes the windows 10 Interface (easily fixed with classicshell or similar) but If you realy don't like Windows 10 why not just re-install the old operating system
No clue how to, and little point as I rarely use it now. Already tried doing a clean install of W10 in hope it would fix things up (it didn't).
There is a possibility of course that your laptop had some undetected hardware issues and the upgrade has made them surface
What does it do on startup?
It still works but it is much much slower than it used to be. And I've had to change all my preferences for everything because it reset them all to default. Fan started overheating and computer started making random beeping noises. This is probably a time thing, but I've also been getting warnings that my battery capacity is significantly less than its original amount (it was either 50% or 20%).
Make sure you go back to the manufactures website and check for driver updates, Windows will try and setup drivers for you and some of them don't work very well. I had a problem with my PC after upgrade with the windows USB drivers but selected the intel ones and all fine. I think this is most peoples issues with upgrading old hardware to windows 10. To play safe I would always say check the manufactures site for Windows 10 drivers for the your PC before upgrade, if they don't have windows 10 drivers you know the manufacture has not bothered to support the PC and upgrade at your own risk. Saying that for every person that has a problem there are 1000's that do not.
That's what I've tried but the ones I need the most won't install (e.g. Ones for graphic drivers). I tried speeding up my computer by disabling all non-essential start-up processes but made no difference :(
At the time I was excited for windows 10 so installed it without a second thought when it was available. Learned my lesson now
If the drivers won't install then they are the wrong ones....

Whatever dude, just get a cheaper key from elsewhere. I got one a few months back had no problems with it. Even manage to transfer the license when I upgraded my pc.
You're still missing the point - if you're going to use an illegal / dubious code you might as well use a free 'tool' rather than paying a crook.


Well if it was illegal then Microsoft shouldn't have activated it and then allowed me to transfer the key

Apple dont charge £150 for a OS so why should MS be able to get away with it. Do you have windows on your PC? did you pay full price for it? i bet you have at least 1 PC in your home thats using either a £3 key off ebay or your using KMS or MS toolkit to have it for nothing are you people also against having a free upgrade from windows 7 or 8 what about the loophole that still allows a free upgrade is that also wrong. It really pissis me off that the same group of people come on cheap Windows key threads and go on about piracy and you should be ashamed of yourself if you get a cheap key or pirate it yourselves some people cant afford £150 for Windows and there kids need it for homework should those people suffer. FFS who cares less about it those who shout loudest are usually them that have something to hide. Microsoft could and should be giving Windows out for free with the data mining thats going on with the OS it wasn't that long back that MS said that anyone who was running a pirate copy of Windows 7 could upgrade to a legit copy for nothing, they dont need the money from the sales of Windows as they make there money basically stealing out lifestyles and data but you dont hear those Trolls going on about that do you. Anyway sorry about the rant its just those sad people and they know who they are that really wind me up.

You should chill out, no need to get wound up from all the "trolls" warning you not to buy illegitimate keys with your money.

Anyway to address a few points in your post.... Microsoft's main source of income is not from Data Mining and selling the info. Their main revenue stream comes from the large number of Organisations around the world that use their Software and pay for it annually via enterprise licensing and support agreements. Sounds like you'd have a heart attack if you saw an MS annual renewal cost, even for an SME, if you're getting so worked up about a £100 retail OS license. The Government's Cabinet Office alone paid over £600k to Microsoft last year. The Department for Education spent over £800k on Microsoft licensing during the same period. That's just 2 of the many Government departments that exist, and over a 1 year period.

Apple do charge for the OS, it's factored into the ridiculously high cost of the Apple Device you buy. Not really any different to buying a Windows PC or Laptop and it coming with a Windows OS license.

As you asked, I have use of 2 computers; a work laptop (I work in IT) which is fully, legitimately licensed via my company's annually renewed MS enterprise agreement. My personal laptop came with a Genuine OEM version of Windows 8 Home edition and has subsequently been upgraded for free to Windows 10 via Microsoft's OS updates. It also has a fully legitimate copy of MS Office license too via Microsoft's Home Use Program, which I paid for with my hard-earned, in case you're wondering.

Generally, most PCs and Laptops (unless a self-build) will come with a genuine Windows license which has been factored in to the retail cost. You don't pay MS but the OEM manufacturer does pay MS for the license provided with the machine. I do wonder why so many people "need" a Windows OS key but can't "afford" to buy one legitimately.

If you still choose to go down the illegitimate route, then fine, go ahead as it's on your conscience, not mine. Just don't pay someone for it when you can do it yourself for nothing.

Can't see any reason to pay this much for Home when you can get an OEM Pro key for less than £15. Nobody ever gets their licence revoked. Look out for yourself, not a multi billion $ company.


Plenty of people nick stuff from Tesco without getting caught.... doesn't mean everyone should join in?

If you encourage people to value software so poorly that they'd rather buy from a dubious key seller then it hurts every software developer, large and small.
£80-90 for a copy of windows really isn't a large amount. Most people buying one are doing so alongside a new computer and plenty of other components will be at least that expensive.
Still, this particular deal smells like it could be fakes as the company behind it is also offering Windows 10 Pro for £32.
