I assure you that when I bought Windows Vista Ultimate from Ebay, this full version computer software has too many problems. Therefore I would suggest that Windows Vista all versions should not be bought. Get Windows 7 home premium or professional in full versions instead as a suggestion. Please do not get WIndows Vista because it is a problem.

I have given this five stars, not because it is a good OS in itself, but if you use it to upgrade a WinXPPro PC, and straight away upgrade again to Win7 Ultimate, you keep all your settings and programmes just fine. This worked excellently on my Toshiba Tecra R10.

HASH(0x9ca00a20) out of 5 stars Upgrade not! (this is a review of the upgrade product-not the OS) April 25 2008
By Bill S. - Published on
Format: DVD-ROM Verified Purchase
From the box "You must perform a clean install....unless you are upgrading from...or any edition of Windows Vista." I specifically bought the upgrade w/SP1 to avoid having to download and install the SP separately -- a no brainer for less than $8 difference in price. Currently installed OS is Vista Home Premium base. Guess what? This item can't be installed as an upgrade until and unless you first install SP1! Oh well. Again, the stars are not for the OS but for the "Upgrade" package.

HASH(0x9ca00c6c) out of 5 stars Was expecting horrors but am pleasantly surprised Sept. 7 2008
By John S. Ruzicka - Published on

Since so many of my clients have PC's that come with Vista, I decided it was time to bite the bullet and learn more about it.

I have a fairly powerful PC and decided to go against everything people had recommended and to upgrade over XP rather than do a clean install. I had my XP drive ghosted and figured the worst that would happen is I'd have to go back and try again.

The upgrade was as smooth as silk. When it was complete, I had to download new video drivers from Nvidia, but they installed properly the first time and I've had no problems with them.

So far, none of my applications or games has complained about Vista. I'm mainly running Adobe CS3 and Office 2007. A few games have had minor issues, but I've been able to tweak them and get things working.

For someone like me who does a lot of file copying and manipulation, the new Explorer is 1,000 times better than the old ones. There is much less confusion when copying files as to what will happen when the same files already exist, and it is much easier to view photos, view audio files, etc.

I really like the Aero interface. It looks slick and it's easy to move between Windows.

In short, while Vista may just be "warmed over XP" under the hood, I've been pleasantly surprised.

HASH(0x9ca00f0c) out of 5 stars A great OS ( as long as you have sp1) March 28 2008
By R. St Pierre - Published on

This is by far the best version of Windows Vista. It updates its drivers for you. Vista is much, much better than XP. Runs super quick, looks beautiful and fixes its own problems. I have it on my laptop and when building a new gaming pc, I had to install Vista as newer games are Vista only and all newer updates will also be Vista only. The 64 bit vista also recognizes my 4gb of ram, no problems. Love it, since sp1 came out most of the problems that this OS had, like HD audio not working, are gone. And for those people who give this OS a 1 star review without any real reasons, I recommend that you go take some computer classes so that you might actually know what you are talking about.

HASH(0x9ca021a4) out of 5 stars Happy with upgrade May 10 2008
By neo10222 - Published on

I bought the upgrade version of vista ultimate with service pack 1. The installer chose the 32-bit version of the os due to my printer (no 64-bit drivers). You can actually open a ticket with MS if you expect a 64b install but don't get it. Remote windows login required domain after username to work. Media center needs to be restarted when going from window to full-screen (minor bug). Love the power management. Almost all drivers were found online by vista! Overall am pleased with this upgrade!

HASH(0x9ca02498) out of 5 stars After SP1 pretty good April 9 2008
By Matthew King - Published on

Before SP1 Vista was junk like most people say, SP1 reduced its' overhead by quite a bit. About 20% less ram and 10% less CPU usage. It is more secure than XP which is why I installed it. I haven't run across any incompatibilities after SP1 which was common early on.
You can install the full version from the upgrade copy, don't upgrade from xp to vista you will be sorry, that route is still a mess.
