Some customer reviews of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit, SP1, English, 1 Pack)

Most helpful reviews

Chris, Perth Computer novice

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Low fuss packaging.
Better operating system.
Free upgrade to windows 10 within the first year of its release.
If upgrading from Vista, its not a massive change and you should feel very confident in zipping round the files etc
Bad points:
Item not exactly as described. The discs received are intended for use by OEMs or system builders. I am neither. I was upgrading from a 32bit Vista to a 64bit Windows 7 there for set up was not as straight forward and these discs come with no instructions. Simply putting the disc in my disc tray and rebooting would not start the executable on the disc so I had to change the BIOS to boot from disc which did work and because I had to do a clean install I had to select a custom install. First time in upgrading and no computer expert so this took a while.

In their wisdom you no longer have office type basics such as word processor etc so unless you already have excel etc you will be forced to buy their very expensive office products or source other free software such as google documents. Naughty Microsoft.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Not many good points if you can't load basic drivers to be able to get the proper ones.
Bad points:
No generic drivers. How the hell are you supposed to install the proper drivers when there are no standard ones to get you going.

Ray, Pontefract

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Once installed works fine.
Bad points:
Would not load on to an existing partition, had to delete all partions and start again, then loaded.
If put on a computer and the motherboard fails you must replace with the exact same board, if not you will have to buy a new copy of window,s so I would think twice before installing on a older system.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
All you need from Windows, probably the best OS since XP.
Bad points:
This is the most basic of the W7 packages, so there are not many features.
