When Buying Windows 10 Should You Opt for OEM Product Key

by Mohit J. White Hat Link Building Services
Over the last few years, you might have noticed OEM keys on the market. They’re significantly cheaper than retail versions of windows, so our first thought was, it safe to buy windows 10 professional OEM key, or is the price reflective of the product? We did some research to find out what an OEM key is, why it’s cheaper, and whether they can be legitimate and safely purchased.

OEM keys are provided to computer manufacturers so that they can have windows installed and ready to go for anyone who purchases the computer.  So why are they available on the market to the regular consumer?  It’s not just large computer manufacturers making or customising computers, with a growing market for gamers and small businesses building their own computers, it wasn’t long before OEM keys found their way on the market. 

So an OEM key definitely can be legitimate, but as with anything, there are “black market” OEM keys, and these could cause you issues. The solution here? Purchase from a known retailer (we chose cdkoffers.com), and you should be in safe hands.  

If you’re think about whether to buy windows 10 professional OEM key, there are a few key considerations to make – the first being, what is the difference between the retail version, and installing via an OEM key? 

Aside from being significantly more expensive, sometimes 10x more, the retail version comes with better phone support from Windows. If you encounter issues, you could call up Windows for assistance.  If you installed via an OEM they could well tell you to speak to the system developer – which would be, well, you. Our consideration here was, how likely is this scenario? We decided the chance of this happening was low, and that at the end of the day, if something goes wrong, google can help you out too.  For those of you who build your own computers, are tech savvy, or could find someone who is, this probably won’t be a consideration. 

So, why windows 10 pro, not the home version? To be honest the main consideration for us was that we were saving so much anyway, we might as well get the maxed out version. But there are a few cool features that made the decision to buy windows 10 pro OEM key an easy one.  Windows 10 professional includes Bitlocker, which encrypts your hard drive, and even if your hard drive is stolen from your computer, it remains password protected. The optimized security functionalities, a whopping 2 terabytes of RAM, Hyper-V and assigned access for different users appealed to us.

Once we decided to go ahead, the process to upgrade our operating system wasn’t tough. We used cdkoffers to buy windows 10 professional OEM key, then there was a simple download and following of prompts. Our computer works a treat and there’s no difference we can tell to the retail version, even after many reboots.  So if you are looking to save some money, get some cool new features, or even use your first legitimate copy of windows, simply make sure your retailer is reputable and make the switch today.
