Why is this being given red? Site not reputable or something? Seems like a pretty good deal to me?

rated:
Reviews of 1sale.com are only 1.5 out of 5 stars, so lots of complaints.

Should I be worried if uBlock Origin tells me not to go there?

The promo code is from 1sale. The actual purchase is from scdkey.com. They are like kinguin or g2a

rated:
Wow scdkey.com is hosted on AWS, that took some balls.

Red for not passing the sniff test.

It's about the same as someone selling a brand new car for 1/2 the MSRP. It is likely stolen, or perhaps being sold by someone with dementia. But even in cases where people need money fast, if they could sell it back to a dealer for close to MSRP, why sell it for 1/2 the MSRP?

Same here: Microsoft typically doesn't allow resellers to sell below a certain price point, and even if they did, the resellers are normally paying much more than $14. The OEM versions are cheaper, but usually come with various restrictions. There just isn't a way to get a $100 Microsoft product for $14 (unless you meet certain criteria; sometimes they have special deals for students, teachers, developers, etc.).

Yup. These keys are grey market keys at best (Legitimate keys sold cheap in china or some other less affluent country for cheap prices) and may work without problems. More likely they are just fake or stolen keys and will probably just not work at all or risk stopping working at some point.

OEM keys may only leagally used in conjunction with purchaces of combinations of mfgr hardware (like asus, hitatchi, western digital, seagate, etc).

you guys need to understand you might be purchasing a physical CD, but you are not buying the license to use the product legally.

Please look up Business software Alliance.

This is called "mischanneling of software". As far as the retailer goes, he will say he's selling the physical disk. how you use it is your fault. So you won't even be able to get a refund after a few months when it stops working
