5 out of 5 eggsFamiliar, comfortable Windows 7

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: IT'S NOT WINDOWS 8/8.1! As many other people have said, Windows 8/8.1 just aren't as good as Windows 7. I'm comfortable with this OS, and it works just fine.

Cons: Ummm.... it doesn't come with free gold?

Other Thoughts: With Windows 10 coming out soonish, I'm thinking of upgrading to that, it is supposed to be fairly similar to Windows 7. Although, I'll wait and see.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best MS ever made!

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 7 has to be one of the best operating systems Microsoft has ever made. In previous generations, it was Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP.

This operating system is supported until 2020, and will use all of your RAM. Driver support is also top-notch, and new motherboards are still supporting it.

Aero, the glassy user interface design, still rocks after all these years. I truly hope that Microsoft bundles it with Windows 10, when it is released later this year. In the tech preview forums, this is one of the most requested features, with over 44,000 votes!!

If you do not need remote desktop and a few other advanced features, Windows 7 Home Premium will work fine for you. Keep this in mind if you want to save some cash!

It runs great on Solid State Drives as well, though you will want to custom configure such an installation. (For example, making sure System Restore does not use up too much space if you keep it running, making sure Defragmentation is disabled for the SSD, etc.)

Cons: Only five more years of support, many modern pre-built machines do NOT have Windows 7 drivers, especially laptops. Check the manufacturer's website if you are UPGRADING from Windows 8 to 7. Yes, UPGRADING. :)

NOTE: Since Service Pack 1, Microsoft has released almost 200 updates. Be aware that you will spend a great deal of time running said updates, especially if you are installing this on a slow hard drive! (5400rpm.)

Microsoft is REFUSING to release a Service Pack 2. Something tells me this might be to spite people who are sticking with Windows 7...!

Other Thoughts: Unless Windows 10 is a compelling "free" upgrade for me, I am going to be using this on my main production machine until it is no longer practical to do so.

Also, don't worry if the DVD is damaged in any way -- Which is unlikely -- but if it happens, since this is final return item:

All you need is the product key. You can *LEGALLY* obtain all of the various Windows 7 disc images as electronic downloads. In this instance, you would need Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1. The download is under 4GB and can be burned to a DVD-R disc, OR flashed to a cheap USB flash drive for Quick Install. (Look for Windows 7 Legal ISO download links. They are legal, because the product cannot be used without the key!).

Make sure you do not lose the product key, and you stick it onto the case of your computer! If you are installing this on a laptop, you might want to consider placing it under the battery if it can fit, so it doesn't rub off.

************DO NOT OPEN THE PRODUCT SLEEVE IF YOU INTEND TO KEEP THIS PRODUCT FOR SALE TO SOMEONE ELSE LATER. The product key will be exposed, and no-one will believe you if you say you did not use it!! Obviously if you are a system builder and attach the key to each machine regardless, this is not an issue. If however you plan to sell this as-new, unopened on an auction site or something --- Keep this in mind!

3 out of 5 eggsWIndows 7 Pro

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows works for most things, even dual screen, and programming.

Cons: Windows is slow to load and its programs like Word are also slow. Windows is also more expensive than Linux and prone to BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). It is difficult to disable features such as Internet Explorer and Media Player, which are just too much trouble to use. Recently, I have noticed that every down load wants to automatically update and add a screen saver, this is a way into your system without you being aware that these programs are monitoring your computer use. I think Windows could do a better job of protecting the consumer by not allowing things through the Firewall, except that they also monitor all your use. These problems are not as prevalent in other operating systems Apple, Chrome, Android, all based in Linux (well maybe not Apple). Windows was an innovator and industry leader, but recently they have impeded growth by forcing the use of Direct X and their own proprietary software for Xbox. In a industry that is grow or die, the next big markets are India and China. Google, Apple and Linux are poised to grow into these markets while Windows pricing policy will prevent them from any further growth and they will be the next "BlockBuster Video". Too big to change, too big to fail.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: It's Windows 7. Product support in effect for a few more years. Lots of eye candy. Lots of software available. Fast.

Cons: Glitchy, doesn't update well, still can't fix itself, can't brew coffee

Other Thoughts: It found 188 updates & tried to install them all at once. Thirty or so crashes later, it still can't install IE 9, 10 or 11, but that may be due to my hardware config (AMD A8, no video card yet). Another 8 or so updates don't apply to x64 machines, had to hide them. Unresolved bug in Media Player (wmpnet.exe or some such) causing some screen lock crashes. All that aside, it's Win7 64-bit, far faster than my old XP 32 machine was. Once the stability issues are resolved, it should keep me happy for a few years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat OS!

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Great and Stable OS.

Cons: I have had the OEM since 2009 when I built a computer. I am in the process of building a new computer to release the one from 2009. Too bad I had to buy a new OEM now less than a year before windows 10.

1 out of 5 eggsCorrupt Disc

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: I purchased this disk to downgrade my new laptop with Windows 8.1 back to Windows 7 Pro. I followed all of the steps but instead of the installation completing it's run, it stopped after the first restart and would not progress any further after I got a message informing me there was corrupt data stopping it. It got far enough I can not just continue to use Windows 8.1 so now my laptop in unusable until I can get a new disk for one of the two OS's.
I purchased this on November 1st and didn't have my laptop in my hands until December 10th to instal it on due to shipping confusion so I am past the date of returning it for a replacement because I had no way of testing it if worked.
I am very dissapointed to have spent this much on an OEM only to have the disk be corrupt and unusable.

Cons: Disk is corrupt and unusable. Waste of money.
