  • No.  Don't buy on eBay, the Amazon Marketplace or discount websites like this one.  Here is why

    There are tens of thousands of these Chinese-made counterfeits on the internet.  They use excellent equipment to produce these and include product keys from fraudulently obtained MSDN subscriptions.  Such keys are not-for-resale keys not valid for anyone but the subscriber.  They will activate at first but as Microsoft detects the abuse the keys get blocked.  By then the seller has disappeared to start up again with a new site.

    The only safe places to buy are the Microsoft Store, Amazon Corp., or other well-known Microsoft partner.

    Is exactly what I am talking about.
