Hi has anyone bought Windows 10 key from Lazada before? It's just RM8 per key. It sounds too good to be true, what's the catch?

These keys are sold by unscrupulous individuals who have access to keys meant for big organisations (think of universities, big MNC, etc).

They will work but if you have to reinstall or reformat Windows you will lose that key. If you call Microsoft to re-activate your Windows, they can even pinpoint which organisation/company that key belongs to.

After collecting US$ thousands for Win 10 Ent/Pro Volume Lisensing, M$ allows enterprises the facility to setup their own KMS server to self-activate their Win 10 Ent Volume Licensing on hundreds or thousands of their computers using ONE common KMS/MAK key. As a condition, M$ only allows this key to be activated for only 18 months = the computers need to be reactivated by the KMS server every 18 months.

Cheap Win 10 keys at about RM5 each sold at shopee or Lazada are often such keys that have been illegally leaked by employees = such keys will only last 18 months before becoming deactivated since the gullible key-buyers' computers are not connected to the particular enterprise's KMS server.

Universities also give such "free" Win 10 Education/Pro Volume Licenses to their students but such licenses have actually been heavily discounted by M$ for universities/colleges. Students may also leak and sell such "illegal" keys cheaply at shopee or Lazada.

In China, India and Russia, pirates setup their own KMS servers to reactivate pirated copies of Win 10 Ent/Pro every 18 months because the governments there condone Windows piracy.

Those keys are very likely legit-imate, eg computer shops or OEM system builders who sell pre-build desktop computers to consumers often buy non-transferable OEM Windows licenses in bulk from M$ at a discount via M$'s agents/distributors/CSP. A non-transferable OEM Win 10 Home/Pro license costs about US$50/$100(= what M$ also charges Dell, HP, Acer, etc for each new OEM Win 10 Home/Pro computer that they sell) and then the computer shops may sell such extra OEM Win 10 licenses online at a profit.
....... In comparison, a transferable Retail WIn 10 Home/Pro license costs US$139/$199 from M$'s website.

Yes, it is legit. Check it out in Shopee too. I already bought the keys many times. Also got help friends to buy and activate their PC after reformat to Windows 10.
