I think not !

illegal ones normally have very very low price.

I do not know any thing about this site.

Even assuming that the OEM software is legit, there are a series of things I don't like about this website.

1) No indication as to where they are based. The only location data I could see was in the FAQ page "The software is shipped from Europe." and that isn't precise enough for me.

2) No mention of VAT as most of these packages exceed the £18 threshold they would probably incur VAT and a service charge for its collection. So not as cheap as it looks at first sight.

3) This ones the real Killer, the order process page where you input your credit card details isn't secured. Fundamental rule of net shopping, if the padlock isn't closed do not put your credit card details in.

Too many things against them for my taste, wouldn't touch them with the proverbial barge pole.

If it's from Europe it would make more sense for the price to be in Euros or Pounds...

Another problem is that OEM software requires something like a new hard disk to be purchased (or even a new computer) so technically it's illegal... (I think anyway) please correct me if Im wrong

Doesnt make sense as anyone can just buy and then copy and return. A complete stay away from site!

"simply contact our customer service team"

Oh yes ????
