1 out of 5 eggsDefective product for computers with Vista OS

Pros: newegg sold me a Microsoft Windows Upgrade that was for Windows Vista operating systems; The product was not not properly marked or displayed for the customer to see what was being purchased. I properly notified a newegg customer rep who said he was taking extensive notes about my contact with Microsoft Windows rep who noted that the product was not compatible with current Windows 7 systems. Rep promised return call about a decision on an RMA for defective Microsoft Windows upgrade and three weeks have passed with no action of defective products sold to me.

Cons: Defective, Old out of date Window Vista software, customer Not informed that the product was defective in display .

Other Thoughts: I am disappointed that newegg did not advertise the the Vista Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade truthfully and honestly to allow the customer to make an informed decision, rather than sell it and harm the customer without taking responsibility as other United States companies who make similar mistakes.

5 out of 5 eggsNice & Easy Upgrade Overall

Pros: Upgraded from Windows XP Pro 32-bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Followed instructions from Microsoft for Custom installation; after about 25 minutes, it was done. Activation was quick and painless.

Cons: Some older software refused to work, but Windows XP mode took care of that. Newer drivers and updated software had to be downloaded and moved to a USB thumb drive before doing the upgrade. Customizing (and getting used to) Windows 7 has taken quite a bit of time, and it's still ongoing.

Other Thoughts: It has been a good experience overall, I just wish Microsoft hadn't shredded the OS GUI to pieces the way they did; everything I knew from WinXP is all over the place now. I guess I'll just have to re-learn everything all over again.

3 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 Yes. Upgrade? Not really.

Pros: Windows 7 is what Vista should have been. The interface doesn't have nearly the bloat of Vista, and it's faster. I didn't have Vista stability issues, but then again, I removed the unnecessary bloat.

I do like the ability to pin items to the Task Bar. Windows 7 doesn't have the ability to build a menu after so many items are added to the Task Bar, but you can create a folder, make a new toolbar, and point it at the folder for the same effect, so I won't dock an egg for that.

The Multimedia player does a much better job of retrieving data and managing your MM files. I think the interfaces throughout the system, while many are still the same or similar to Vista, is still overall cleaner.

Cons: This was supposed to be an "upgrade" package. It didn't matter that I already had admin privileges on my account, or whether I logged into the admin account. It didn't matter that I shut down every process and service that I possibly could. It didn't matter how many times I ran the Windows upgrade utility. This system simply wouldn't upgrade. It would always fail at the very end when it was supposed to be copying programs and whatnot. A little research on the issue showed I am far from being the only one with the issue, and none of the suggestions that were mentioned online fixed the issue. It would still fail at the very end and fall back to the original OS install.

Other Thoughts: Although I'm just upgrading my home system to the OS I have worked with it at work for quite some time. I still like Windows 7, but the upgrading from a previous OS isn't a given. If you have a previous versions of Windows and want to upgrade, do it while you still get the Acronis True Image. I've used the program for a couple of years now and love it.

Something with a little more detail than the Setuperr.log that could be more easily understood would be nice for troubleshooting upgrade failures.

It does create a Windows.old directory with all your critical files, so you can still copy them over as long as you don't select the option to format the drive, but plan on having to go with a clean install, so make sure you have your software license keys for your other programs!

So far BF3 only required me to copy over the directories from the Windows.old files and reinstall Origin to bring it back to life. I'm hoping for the same with my Steam files.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Has both 32 bit and 64 bit upgrades so I can install a 32 bit version in a VM for testing with half the memory needed. I did a clean install and activated it online with no problem, never even asked for a previous install disk.

Cons: Awfully expensive when you compare it to O/S upgrades from the fruit company. Guess those guys make their money on over-priced hardware.

Other Thoughts: Worth an extra $50 to have a transferable license. Unless the policy has changed, with an OEM license MS actually expects you to buy another copy if you upgrade the motherboard and CPU on your own computer; if you ever do upgrade, tell MS the old motherboard died when you call to reactivate.

4 out of 5 eggsSaved vs Full Version

Pros: Less than full version.

Cons: Clean install required registry change to activate.

Other Thoughts: Since I had a couple XP pro licenses sitting around that I wasn't using I figured I would go with the upgrade. This comes with both the 64 and 32 bit install disks and it did a clean install fine to my new machine. The issue came in when I tried to activate using the upgrade key. It kept saying that clean installs were not supported. I figured this was crazy so I called Microsoft support. Eventually they directed me to do a registry change and run a dos command and then everything activated fine. Not hard just annoying that I had to do.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Ultimate Windows 7

Pros: Installed without a hitch. I had Windows XP and once the installer saw I had a qualifying OS already on my system I was able to do a clean install. What a treat. No self respecting geek would ever do an "upgrade"

Cons: UAC, User access control. Asks you if you want to do ANYTHING and requires a yes or no answer. This can be turned off but I ike it. It prevents me from making mistakes and thinking twice about my actions.

Other Thoughts: Runs everything I had and more unless the program was written explicitely for an earlier version of windows they work fine. Never need XP virtual PC.
