Sure, it's out there along with many others to provide a "Backup" of your original cd.

So... Legitimately, it's there, but honestly, everyone knows what it's there for...

I get worried when ANY web based retailer does not openly display there physical location.

Another flag, is that they offer only an email address for contacting them.

What they are doing, is capitalizing on PC manufactures and retailers that have gone out of business.

My regular reference web-tailers sell Windows XP Pro OEM for $140 or so.

The site you have there is likely NOT an authorized Microsoft (or any other brand) re-seller.

I am with TheChas on this one.
As you can see, it is registered to a person in Russia, and they used a Hotmail account for their registration e-mail.
I don't get a good feel from this.
And those prices are just TOO good. XP Pro for $40? Win2K3 Server for $80? Photoshop for $60?
I'm sorry. I love a good deal way to much, but even I can't believe this one.

IMHO, I would not use this website.

Something else is the fact that the domain was initially registered LAST MONTH!

Man, I would NOT be surprised if this were a scam!
