That said it would be cheaper repurchasing than buy the official software. Go with 365 for a fiver a month.



i bought a windows 7 pro key about 5 years ago and it's still working so please stop grandstanding ..
As with any of these deals, people try to justify the (possible) dodgy software with excuses. A little investigation into this and this is what you would find :-

Company :-
AA Printing Machinery & IT Equipment Limited

Company Number :-
09319995

VAT Registration :-
GB 225757884

Telephone :-
+44 (0) 161 818 7387 or
+44 (0) 749 223 6771

Directors :-
Mr Ashraf Al Saadieh - DOB July 1970 (154a St. Albans Avenue,Ashton-Under-Lyne. OL6 8TU)
Tamer Samir Abobakr GHATAS - DOB Jan 1981 (98 Wellesley Court, Maida Vale, London. W9 1RQ

Head Office Address :-
154a St Albans Avenue
Ashton-Under-Lyne
England
OL6 8TU
Photo of business head office (bear in mind this place is turning over £100,000 in used/disposed IT equipment, oh it looks like a flat above an Indian Restaurant):-

Warehouse Address :-
Unit 96B
North Western Street
Manchester
M12 6JL
http://oi67.tinypic.com/2dgpamv.jpg

So on the face of it the business seems to be filing correct documentation with Companies house, VAT and LTD registered.

According to seller history (not always accurate), they have sold - Total Revenue: £324,165.10 + £0.00 shipping in the last 30 days.

But when you factor in common sense... they have sold 34000 **SCRAP** Office 2016 licences. Do you really believe that 34000 PC's in the entire country have been scrapped that had **SINGLE** Office 2016? Bear in mind that any company with more than 50 PC's will be covered under Microsoft VL agreement or typically use Office 365 enterprise.

Sounds legit oO
Last time I bought 3 and all remain working perfectly. no reason why they shouldn't work again!
Does Windows 10 automatically have MS Office pro? What if I want the broken computer? (  "Therefore, this sale includes the original broken beyond economical repair computer and motherboard").
33000 sold !!!!!
Thats nearly £200,000
I can't see these keys staying active on your PC for very long.
How would you download it if you've not got the disc?
So you get the licence key and the broken computer the software is for... plus it says:

LICENSE KEY FOR ONLY ONE COMPUTER and CAN BE REUSED ON THE SAME MACHINE

So, it cannot be used on any computer other than the same machine (which is broken). Pointless purchase.
From SCRAP PC!

There is no way someone can sell this amount of keys that are genuine and legitimate. I would like to be wrong, I have no doubt they will work but only for a certain period of time.
Yes that's true after 3-4 months it says non-genuine version and won't work TRUST ME DO NOT BUY I had previous experience with this seller I bought windows 10 and this one after 3-4 months says invalid
Just be aware that these keys will not be legitimate. If you are ok with that then even if they do get revoked after a few months it will still be cheaper to keep buying these cheap ones than forking out for a genuine office pro licence. I'd seriously look at just subscribing to office 365 though as you can get reasonable deals on that quite often and at least you know it is legit then.

Nope. Windows and office are two different software packages sold separately. This has always been the case but it used to get bundled with a lot of computers, now it is usually only a trial.
Given how legit these keys are, you might as well not pay at all.

Purchased.

Don't know why.

By brilliant support of HUKD (Quidco) who get paid from eBay so allow it but won't allow other cheaper and well vouched offers on Reddit for "similar" keys

i bought a windows 7 pro key about 5 years ago and it's still working so please stop grandstanding ..
just a word of warning, i have previously purchased office and windows keys from ebay and they got killed after a few days.
they caused me.massive inconvenience.

I did also have good experiences from another seller
I bought this from the exact seller on 9. Jan. 2017 and it still works fine - but I paid £9.99 for it so this is a bargain.
its all a massive con, just using a key generator to make keys and idiot can do it for free with KMS activator.
I would prefer a physical licence in a case such as this to prove its genuine. I wouldn't be arsed if its from a scrap machine as its a simple license transfer but how do you know......
This is dodgy beyond belief.

Just a heads up, anyone who's employer uses Office should be eligible to get Office 2016 (Win+Mac) for £9.95

I know it's not for everyone but a lot of people should be able to get it.

​this is an OEM license to be used in a OEM to retail scenario, this license whilst it can be bought and sold, is not within the license terms for end users to purchase and install on thier own machines, whether you do of course is not possible to police.

as for key generators and Kms activators they are purely pirated software and theft.

for not much money you can.have a legal license.

if you of course have any issues or concerns with using ms products, then Linux, android and Apple provides viable alternatives. certainly Linux is right up there in that list. maybe Ubuntu for beginners, and move on to better distros as you get confidant.
if you have concerns regarding privacy , then again, may i refer you to Linux.
I bought an MS office key from an eBay seller. Tried using it with my official MS Office disc and it would not work. The seller said I had to download Office from a link he gave me, and all was fine after that. I think the Office software that I downloaded came from the hard drive of a damaged PC, and the license key must have been for use on that PC. Been using it for a year with no problems.

Or in the real world, it could be because the key is not legit. However it works fine on the pre-cracked pirate copy of Office you got from the seller's link.

For those looking at this deal, I suggest you give LibreOffice a go for free instead. Don't waste your money on what won't be a legitimate license (although it may well work).

Just by way of reply to the posts above, yes OEM licenses are for manufacturers to use on new PC's. However, Microsoft is aware of the resale of OEM keys and has not taken steps to prevent it. If Microsoft really wanted to, it could put pressure on the sellers to stop selling keys or threaten to sue. There are plenty of blogs and magazine articles referring to Microsoft turning a blind eye to the practice, probably because it represents a very small loss if revenue.
On the rare occasions when an OEM key fails to register, it may be because the seller has not fully decommissioned the damaged PC. So just buy another key for a fiver. Two attempts at using an OEM key are unlikely to fail, and you will save a bundle of cash instead of buying the official key.
By the way, there is no EBay protection for items downloaded from a seller's web site. EBay protection only applies to physical items delivered to your door. If you by with PayPal you will have some limited protection for a download.
Linux Mint is a good alternative to Windows, and comes with free office suite and other excellent software (as do the other Linux and Ubuntu OS's). However, Linux does take a but if getting used to, so anyone only confident with Windows OS should maybe give it a miss. I revived an old WindowsVista laptop with Linux and it now goes like a train.

If you use Office at work and your employer is part of the Microsoft Home User Programme, you can get Office 2016 for £10 (one off fee no subscription).

I bought Office 2013 a few years ago for £10 through Microsoft's official HUP. Works fine for me. No need to waste money upgrading.

in the real world, it'll be a version of office to use the OEM key as opposed to a RETAIL disc, or you can go via setup.office.com

If you're going to use a clearly illegal key - why not just go on a torrent site and do it for free? Giving money to criminals won't help anyone...
