It smells fishy to me, I bought my Win7 Ultimate from a reputable e-tailer, got the box with the MS key, and have had no problems. But it is your $60. You know reputable e-tailers sell the OEMs for ~$150, the upgrades for ~$200, and the retail for ~$300.

i'm with treefrog, it sounds bad, and by sdn i think you meant msdn

though why do you need ultimate, Home Premium is all most people need and it's $100 OEM

Technet and MSDN product keys are licensed only to the original subscriber - it's against the terms of the license agreement to resell them to others.

There have been posts here from people who've bought cheap license keys from sources like this and ended up with their systems deactivated after Microsoft discovered the scam and deactivated the keys.

Buyer beware.

Yes, sounds fishy. The only way to get a guaranteed genuine copy of Windows 7 is to purchase it from a reputable retailer (such as Best Buy) or from Microsoft directly. I fear if you purchase the Ultimate CD for $60 you will be throwing away $60 that you could be putting toward a genuine copy of Windows 7.

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you're interested in learning more about genuine Windows, visit http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/genuine

You might want to read the thread "CD-Key Blocked by Microsoft". At least then you'll only have yourself to blame for wasting $60.

^Home Premium is what everyone needs. XP Mode is only really good for business use since its a virtual box for XP compatability.

For gaming, Pro and Ultimate have nothing you or anyone needs.

While I have Ultimate, its only because I got a great deal on a copy from MS themselves ($200 for a full version instead of upgrade or OEM).
