About Microsoft Office 2010 Product Key Cards
A Product Key Card provides another way to purchase Office with a PC. It includes a 25-character Product Key designed to activate Office software on a preloaded PC.

Product Key Card features

  • Includes 25-character Product Key only, no disc.
  • Designed to activate Office on 1 PC preloaded with Office 2010 suites. For a limited time, customers buying a PC without Office 2010 preloaded, can download the software at www.office.com/productkeycard.
  • Licensed for 1 install on single PC only.
  • License cannot be transferred to another PC.
  • Download backup available at www.office.com/productkeycard.

Recommended for:

  • Customers buying a PC who need Office for new PC only; don't need to upgrade other home PCs.
  • Customers buying a PC who don't require DVD media and/or are okay downloading software (if Office not preloaded).
  • Customers buying a new PC (best experience if customer simply uses the Product Key to activate a PC already preloaded with Office 2010 suites)

For customers who require Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 with a license for three machines in the same household, Office may be purchased in a traditional disc version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cannot be upgraded, so be careful! May 20, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This software is the same quality software we all expect from Microsoft and I am certain you'll be pleased with it (more on that later)---but first, be very careful about what you're buying, because there is no longer an upgrade path between Office 2010 versions:

I purchased this product for my brother, who did not need Outlook. Once installed, however, I realized that the software labels itself "Not for commercial use"--meaning, it's not licensed for use in a business, and this was going to be for use in an office. This was clearly my fault: I was only looking at the included products, and not thinking about the license terms.

No matter; I figured I would simply upgrade him to "Home and Business"--only to find that Microsoft's latest upgrade strategy is...well, there isn't one. According to Microsoft, this keeps things simpler for consumers, because apparently we were having trouble understanding the difference between "upgrade" and "full" versions. So to upgrade, you just have to buy the higher-level version at full price. For this reason, I feel Microsoft should do a little more "are you sure?" work during installation (for example, "Is this software going to be used in a business environment?" would have been a great question in my case...)

So if you're purchasing this for a business, OR you think you will need Outlook, Access or Publisher eventually, strongly consider buying either the Home and Business version (adds Outlook and business licensing) or Professional version (additionally adds Access and Publisher) instead of this one.

The Disc version costs $120 currently, and product key version $106.

The Disc version can be installed on three PC's instead of just one for the product key version.

The Disc version provides for easier emergency recovery/reinstall (no downloads) compared to the product key version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore negative (and inaccurate) comments! March 15, 2012
By Chris
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Please note that the negative comments for this product are not accurate.

This purchase DOES INCLUDE a full download of Microsoft Office 2010 as well as a single key code to use with the product. Something may have changed since the inaccurate comments were made, but the software CAN be downloaded directly from amazon.com immediately after purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Value...Buy Disc Version instead! August 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Key Card|Verified Purchase
This key version is ONLY GOOD FOR ONE (1) PC INSTALLATION, vs the disc version for $20 more which is good for THREE (3) PC installations.

Big mistake buying this key version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult install March 5, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Key Card|Verified Purchase
The install was difficult. I had the 2007 trial on my computer and once the program got to the end step it would stop. I called Microsoft and was told by the first person they could not help me. The second time I called I got help. It took them at least an hour to get it on my computer because they had to use some of their programs to remove 2007 and I could not have done that with the add/remove on the computer. Once they had finished with the set up process and everything was installed it runs great. I love it compared to 2007. Very easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Less Expensive Alternative September 6, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Key Card|Verified Purchase
If you do not need to put MS Office on multiple computers, this is all you need. My laptop for work came with MS Office Starter, which had limited abilities and options and finally didn't work for me the way I needed it to. In the end I had to purchase the full version and this was the least expensive way to do so. It did the job and was very simple to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars MS Office Home & Student Product Key version. August 26, 2010
By mbw
Platform for Display:PC Key Card|Verified Purchase
**On A Clean PC** = This key works flawlessly when used to activate Office Home/Student that has been downloaded from the website ([...]) provided in the editorial review. It is written that the website can be accessed for a limitied time and I have no idea how long that is. It still exists as of this writing. To reiterate, using the online download version together with the product key offered here results in a trouble free install - On a Clean PC, (no prior install of Office). An install disk can be purchased from MS for about $15 after tax (free s/h), at the time you do the download, if you want one. I did not pre-install Office in leu of receiving the product key...I waited until it came in the mail (two days Amazon Prime), and activated it immediately after download.

(Installed on old (2005 or 2006 I think) Sony laptop VGN-SZ270P/C with 2gb ram running Vista from a clean install)
