Default MS Office 2016 or 2019 Professional Plus Real or Not

How do I know if an office product is real or not? I mean is it pirated or is it authentic. Is there some way I can tell before I purchase the product?

Secondly, does a disk generally come with the purchase or is it download only?

Basically I want to buy a 2016 or 2019 but there are so many difference choices with prices ranging from under $10 to over $150. So how do I tell if the product is authentic or not?

Just as I posted this, an add popped up from "The Key Factory" for Office 2016 Pro Plus for under $40. This is for a key only!! It does give instructions for downloading the software (both 32 and 64 bit versions).

this is an example of the my questions!!. Is The Key Factory offer a valid offer with a valid/real key and method of installing the software?

Since this is a ms office forum, I assume most of you have office installed on your computers. So where did you get your office product and do you think it is a valid office product?

AFAIK there is no Office Professional Plus 2019. MS Advertises:
Office Home & Student 2019 @ $149.99
Office Home & Business 2019 @ $249.99
Office Professional 2019 @ $439.99
For Office Professional 2019, see: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/of...%3aoverviewtab

If the price is too good to be true, it is...

That said, some of the prices you're seeing are most likely subscription prices for various editions of Office 365, which is presently equivalent to Office 2019. Or, they could be for pirated 'OEM' installations of Office 2013 or 2016...

Default Activation key real or not

If you purchase an activation key and want to know if it is real you can contact Microsoft of course. You could also use a program called Belarc (free) and scan your computer and it will give you a lot of information about your computer including serial numbers for installed programs. If you activation key is not real it will tell you. Behind office for example it might tell you that the key expires at a certain date.
Hope that helps.

This was of great help. Thank you for making me aware of Belarc.
