This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Standard 64 bit OEM, WN7-00403, English Version (DVD-ROM)
So I got this for my new build, I really liked the look of Windows 8 as I must confess I was getting a little bored of Windows 7 and Vista. When I first installed Windows 8 it was very quick, although of course that speed naturally has deteriorated as more and more things are installed. 3 months down the line it is around the same speed as Windows 7 and I am sick to death of how it works, I am constantly looking up ways to downgrade but it seems I'd have to wipe my hard drive and buy Windows 7 for £70. I would not recommend that you buy this OS and just stick with Windows 7.
I've even installed a Ubuntu partition on my hard drive and I am much happier while using that, and should I build a new PC in the near future I would not consider Windows 8 at all.
UPDATE: Drive failed, got a refund for both the hard drive and Windows 8. Replaced with 1TB Seagate SSHD and Windows 7 64bit (Much happier!)
