    wow... a lot of cheap software on that webpage. Anyway, they won't ship you any disks\media, you should only download them. It's nice, but I'm wondering too if it's legit or not? :D

    How did you find out that the site is selling illegal software? o_O

    Somehow, just because some site is based in China doesn't always mean its illegal :doubt:

    hmm... from their FAQ:
    OEM and retail are different things. OEM comes preinstalled with a new PC or after 90 days from buying the PC. Retail is called a software acquired without a PC.
    They seem to mix the 2 things. They sell OEMs as retail.... :cautious:

    Here's the crunch in their FAQs.
    "3. What does OEM stand for? What is the difference between OEM and full retail packaging?
    OEM - Original Equipment Manufacturer. A retail version comes in a fancy box, OEM does not. A retail version contains a printed manual. The customers who purchase a retail version are eligible for tech support and different rebates. With our offer this is not possible - hence cheap prices.
    Be aware that you will not be able to register the software with the manufacturer. Some of these products cannot be updated on-line."

    My emphasis in bold & red, but the message is clear - stay away from them!

    Well, at least these would have been resonable prices for many countries having a small income per month but it seems they are illegal.

    The site isn't loading for me so I couldn't check the details for myself. Thats why I asked how everyone found out the site was selling illegal software. :)

    Anyway, This line:

    really is the crunch. Best to stay away from this site. :)

    When I first saw the price they were asking for Office 2007 Pro, my eyes lit up. $50, wow! Then I started thinking, if it sounds too good to be true, there's got to be a catch. Looks like my feelings were correct. I don't know if I would have done it anyway, I'm a little leery about handing out my credit card number to places I'm not familiar with.
