Ordered from Stop Computers, delivered promptly - no complaints.
The COA 'sticker' is not printed to the usual high quality one expects of expensive Microsoft products and some may view it as slightly suspect. As this is a 'refurbished' version of Windows 7 Pro it's possible Microsoft allows certified sellers to print their own COA stickers. Quality of the sticker aside WIndows 7 Pro installed without issue.
I ordered two copies of Windows 7 PRO, the first copy would not activate over the internet [no reason given] but did activate when I made a call to the automated service on the 1800 number provided. The second copy installed and activated without any issues.
I rate the product 4/5 - the quality of the COA sticker and the need to phone to activate taking a little from the product.
I would order from this company again.

After my Hard drive failed on my old Windows XP PC I needed a new Hard drive and a new operating System. Windows XP is now not supported so I went for Windows 7 as it is still supported. After fitting a new Hard drive I loaded the Windows 7 disk in my DVD tray and booted from the DVD drive. Windows 7 installed without any problems. You may need your motherboard drivers DVD depending on the age of your motherboard. I didn't as Windows had all the drivers that I needed apart from my soundcard driver which I got from the Windows update web site.
I did have to install 185 Windows updates which took ages to do, but once it was done all is good.
I then activated Windows with the code supplied via the activation web site and that went fine with no problems. I didn't have to phone like some people did.
The Windows 7 DVD I got was a true copy of MS Windows 7 Professional with SP1 and not a third party copy. The paper work instructions are all in German. But you don't really need them anyway. The DVD is in English and comes with the activation code.
All in all, I'm very happy with an easy install with Windows 7 at a good price. Thanks. would buy again.

I had an old Dell Optiplex 760 that had been used with Win XP Pro. Fitted new 1TB hard drive and loaded the official Win 7 Pro DVD in the drive. A quick boot up and answered a few basic location questions and I had Win 7 Pro up and running inno time at all. Completed the online registration process and attached the COA provided. The rest of the software installation has proceeded equally easily with the occasional pause for various Microsoft updates. I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

Having read the reviews I was a little nervous about installing myself but I needn't have worried. The install went without hitch and the code in the paperwork worked fine. I didn't have to call to register as some reviewers did. Good price for the software.

I'm not the most PC literate of people and I managed the upgrade without difficulty. I ran the compatibility checker first and copied the drivers as directed by the Microsoft upgrade instructions. That didn't totally work but I got there in the end. I also ran the easy transfer first which backed up all the existing files before making the move to Windows 7. I was moving from XP to 7 so it was a complete system wipe. I was expecting at least some teething difficulties but except for the things identified in the compatibility check before the upgrade, everything else worked just fine.

Installed without a hitch- recognised by Microsoft as bona fide version of windows7 --- be prepared for literally 100's of updates!! Satisfied customer.

Nicely priced but I had to resort to activating by phone to use it. Fortunately the Microsoft staff were very helpful and eventually Windows accepted the product key, however a bit of hassle and I am not sure if I would want to go through this process again.

The disk is also marked as intended for distribution with a refurbished PC so perhaps not for the average home user.

As far as Windows 7 is concerned it is fine. I can't wait until they start shipping Windows 10 so that I can leapfrog 8.1.

I had an HP laptop with XP installed which is no longer supported by MS.
I therefore needed an OS and this Windows 7 Pro 32bit looked ideal.
It installed and activated without issue apart from 1/2 a gig of patches and updates which were to be expected considering the age of W7.
The software was delivered before estimate date and the price was very reasonable.
I'm happy.

Comes with a German (!) instruction leaflet and installed perfectly on my old Vista PC. Activation code accepted by Microsoft in about a minute over the internet. I was holding my breath, but it was OK. Fast service too. I would recommend this to anyone as a route to the free Windows 10 upgrade when it is released. Apparently will be able to leapfrog 8/8.1, hardware dependent of course.

Good price, Good product, and installed no problem on new blank hard drive, though as others have said there are hundreds of updates, 209 on day 2, then another 75 last night. Its all done automatically but it took the PC almost an hour to shut down for the big batch. which may be inconvenient if like me You like to turn of the PC before going out or to bed.
