5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use.

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Was expecting some issues with older games, Sims 3 etc., not working with Windows 8 but it has been working fine! Even installed my old Black and White 2 and it's been running without any problems. So far haven't had any glitching or bad experiences.

Cons: The only thing I've noticed is from time to time my disk usage goes up really high for a few seconds making things run slowly for a moment but it always comes back down. Don't know why this is, probably windows running things in the background. But overall have had great luck with this OS.

4 out of 5 eggsNot in Retail box

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: It's windows 8.1 as advertised

Cons: It's not in the retail packaging like the description says. The activation key is extremely tiny and hard to read. Also, it took over 2 weeks to arrive.

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: NOTHING DON'T BUY IT!

You can't go backward to normal windows 8 with this disk. Just windows 8.1 which even microsoft said window 8.1 is messed up. Now the operating system crashed like crazy.

Cons: EVERYTHING

Other Thoughts: Newegg shouldn't be selling this.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't pay for shipping upgrade

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: None

Cons: I paid a significant amount more to have my order shipped 2 day. They did not ship the order until three days after I placed the order. I'll think twice about ordering something I need quickly from Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Can be used much like Windows 7
Startup Window is actually very versatile.

Cons: Lots of unnecessary/underused elements.
No DVD player pre-installed.

Other Thoughts: This OS is designed specifically for the Surface tablet computers, not your average desktop. That said, there are many elements only appropriate for touchscreen devices.
Also, this comes without a DVD player unlike previous Windows OSs. Probably due to the lack of DVD drives on Surface tablets.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Much faster than windows 7, with the 8.1 update there are no more annoying menus that pop up out of nowhere. Perfect for gaming on my machine.

Cons: Of course the price but is cheaper than many other versions of windows.

Other Thoughts: System specs:
Asus maximus hero VII
Intel I7 4790
corsair vengeance 16 GB DDR3 1866mhz

5 out of 5 eggsI hate Windows

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Cheap

Cons: A pain to install. Takes forever

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my son's gaming rig. I have no use for windows at all. Installation took forever. I mostly let my son deal with it and am glad I don't have to use this OS

1 out of 5 eggsWindows 8.1 is garbage.

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: None

Cons: My internet would not work. It has began to work after I've done some messing with it. But it continues to disable my Wifi adapter, so I have to un-plug it then plug is back in to the USB slot.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend this software for a desktop, get windows 7! (I had to re-plug in my Wi-Fi adapter in 2 times trying to write this review)
