I ran across a company 'Software 1668" on Ebay selling XP Home Edition for about $70., has anyone had any dealings with this company or bought Windows' stuff from EBay and was it worth it?

The only thing I would worry about buying XP on ebay is: is it legit?

Someone may have already used the product key, and maybe trying to sale it to someone.

I'd recomemend either TigerDirect or CompuUSA. I got my XP Pro disc back in 2002 for only $120. :thumbsup:

I bought my xp home copy on ebay.
I got it sealed never used.
If you buy one on ebay get it from someone with high feedback even if it is a little more than the guy with 8 for a feedback rating.

I have bought many copies of windows on eBay. To date I have not been taken.

2-XP Professional
4-XP Home
12-Windows 2000 Professional
6-98se
1-ME
4-NT 4
2-WindowsNT Server Ver. 4

Like I said to date I have not been taken. I purchased all the software, but some was for others.
