Rated 5 out of 5 by RThorsson Great OS
Having come from Vista/W7 this is a great OS. Everything is much faster. As it is right now I would recommend this OS over W10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by felinefine Not such a bad OS
I am mainly an open source user. However, this version of Windows is a lot better than many detractors would have you believe.
Yes it has its quirks. But I found it quite intuitive to use and easy to install.
I bought this OS to install on my wife's laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carlos2014 Great with a little knowhow
Installed as a second operating system alongside Windows 7. As long as you realise the error that Windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk...is a DVD firmware error and you do not have to reformat your destination drive, then all is good. There is a lot of misinformation on the net to this effect. Just first try to change the DVD drive option in BIOS. Otherwise product is cool. Not as bad as people make out

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baazoozoo Like a New PC
I was not looking forward to upgrading from win7 after all the stories I read about win8. Win 8.1 turned out to be a fast simple install and I've had no issues running, Adobe CC or any other software. My 4 year old PC is running so well, it feels like a new one. I gave 5 stars for value but that is Scans value and not MS, I think they charge to much for their OS's and hold back those who can't afford it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MartO It's Windows
Great deal from Scan, but not Microsoft's best OS. Fine if you are using a touch screen/tablet/phone, not quite so friendly if you aren't, even with the 8.1 update.
If you want to have more of a feel of Win7 there are a couple of simple add-ons available.
Classicshell (free) or Start8 ($5) will adapt the front end to the more familiar look of older OS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noisore Works like a dream!
Product arrived in a timely manner, with plenty of information about its delivery status. Product worked perfectly, while the interface is a jarring change from previous windows versions, startup is very quick coupled with an SSD.
10/10 would buy from again.
