It is cheap because they are reselling msdn keys which is illegal.

they are not selling the windows license.

if you want to go illegal route might as well use an activator.

for those that buy, you can use command prompt to check validity

slmgr /dli

Based on your definition, key and license are different i.e. 2 separate things?

Sorry, didnt mean to dig but need some advice here...

Looking for Office 365 and some claim for $11-$12, it's actually a 'Lifetime' key, is there
such a thing?

TIA!

Mind sharing how you check? Is there a web site by Microsoft to check the details when you key in the product key?

legal keys (retail/oem) come with certificate of authenticity. illegal ones dont.

Get from ebay cheaper. I got my Win10 Pro key for only US$2.50. Working fine.

In almost all cases, the cheap license is illegal, whether volume license, MSDN key, or TechNet key. Except Microsoft does not bother to chase retail customers who knowingly or unknowingly buy and use such keys. They are not meant to be sold to end users like retail license or OEM license.

If I am not mistaken, volume license are only meant to be used for large companies, institutions, and organizations that bought many licenses for use on their PCs internally. If your computer does not belong to the licensing organization, it is illegal.

For Sim Lim Square kind of IT mall, at least they can claim to be bundling the OEM license with a new DIY PC, which makes selling OEM license legal.
