2 out of 5 eggsDon't use this method

Pros: None

Cons: I had read the previous cons concerning this method of getting an upgrade, and shrugged them off as people just not reading the description well enough. I had read through and knew what I was getting. What I didn't know was that it was going to take 3 DAYS TO GET A FREAKING KEY CODE. Something as simple as getting an email took 3 DAYS TO GET. The ONLY reason that I am giving this two eggs is because the last guy at new egg that I talked to was able to get me the code in seconds (which in reality kind of ticked me off even more; why couldn't the other two people at new egg that I had spoken to previously gotten it to me that fast). Oh well , I'm gonna just chalk this one up as a life-lesson-learned. If I ain't gett'n the media, I ain't payin' for it. I had to go another route to get the computer upgraded since I was under time constraints.

Other Thoughts: I have a bad habit of not rating what I buy normally. So, when I do rate something it is either going to be freaking awesome or a complete waste of time, piece of JUNK!! Unfortunately in this case.........BIG waste of time, and money.

1 out of 5 eggsIncredibly Dissapointed with Windows 8 in general.

Pros: There is absolutely nothing good I can say about windows 8.

Cons: I have, several times now, made the mistake of buying a laptop, going "Oh It's windows 8.1" then realizing there isn't a domain join option available in it.

Now, reading the reviews, I'm wondering if I've got to start reading EULA's to figure out even if the upgrade would work on a laptop. I have no idea what version of windows I have; OEM, Retail, VLK, something else; by the tag on the bottom. Oh sure, I can use WMIC or Produkey and poke around. Why should I have to?

Win7 and Vista had several versions and they were very specific to what was in each; the time waste with their software is reaching critical mass.

Other Thoughts: There's no guarantee that this will actually update your windows 8 "home" to windows 8 pro.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated review

Pros: Pro version

Cons: Regardless of my reanalysis of the pricing, I still believe it is too expensive to justify purchasing. Not to mention, it is misleading to potential buyers as it doesn't explain it is solely an upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my previous review.

I realize the pricing for this item is in reference to retail versions of Windows 8, rather than the OEM versions, as I was referring to. In that regard, the pricing is not outrageously gouged.

It's still a better deal to go for the OEM version, though, unless you plan on upgrading your motherboard/cpu and reinstalling Win8.1 again.

1 out of 5 eggsOutrageous pricing

Pros: It adds the features of Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 8.1 Basic

Cons: The price for this is absolutely ridiculous. Windows 8.1 Basic is $100. Windows 8.1 Pro is $140. How Microsoft justifies a $100 price tag for this is beyond me. This is nothing short of highway robbery.

Other Thoughts: The price should be no more than the difference between the costs of Basic and Pro themselves.

3 out of 5 eggsWin 8.1 Pro / Bitlocker

Pros: The installation was easy enough.

Cons: The main issue is that I purchased this for the Bitlocker disk encryption feature only to find out that my new Lenovo laptop does not have the TPM(Trusted Platform Module) support to obtain the desired encryption I was looking for. Should have research this more. So a waste of $100.

3 out of 5 eggsREAD this!

Pros: This software performs as described.
It's ONLY purpose is to upgrade your VALID Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 PRO. It isn't for any other purpose.
For instance you will need this if you need to join a domain but didn't get 8.1 Pro.

Cons: The software has a glitch during install.

Other Thoughts: This is a specific piece of software that only upgrades you from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 pro. It is buggy during install!

During install it lets you put in the key, but says an error happened right near the end of the process, then tells you your license key is invalid if you retry...

Really, however, you just have to restart your computer for it to be fixed. Upon restart it will say "Installing updates" and the upgrade will be completed successfully.

1 out of 5 eggsMicrosoft Windows 8.1 Pro Pack (Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro Upgrade) - Online Code

Pros: None that I can say about Newegg that can be published after this purchase.

Cons: Never buy an OS software unless you can save a copy of download to disk or order a CD/DVD disk later. The problems arise when you have to restore your computer and it keeps asking you for the installation disk. Also when you get that stupid FREE 8.1 upgrade from Microsoft it wipes out several restoration files and tells you to insert installation CD if you have to restore your computer. When you call MS support they try and sell you a full version of win 8.1 for $199.99. Do what you want but if you use your cpu for critical activities not tweeting or yahooing get a CD/DVD for restoration it's worth it when you run into problems.

Other Thoughts: If you buy these download upgrades from Newegg your on your own when you can't download the upgrade to repair your computer. I have spent $300 to $5000 yearly with Newegg for the past 5 years and I will never buy from them again after the service I got from this particular purchase. They lost an excellent customer rather than refunding me the $94.

5 out of 5 eggsPainless upgrade

Pros: Does what is says on the tin, upgrades your Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro. I needed this to run Hyper-V and be able to develop Windows Phone Apps

Cons: It's a shame I paid for this only for the Hyper-V functionality!

1 out of 5 eggsNOT A FULL VERSION

Pros: NONE

Cons: A Waste of $100. Was not clear on purchasing this was just a code to upgrade a non existent version of windows 8 non pro. Its almost impossible to find a version of windows 8 that isnt pro for sale. no way to return this so now im out and very unhappy.
