    Having said that though, as I said in a prior post, essentially go ahead and purchase the one you want: it isn't an expensive endeavor and it looks like a good choice to find out if it meets your need.
    Yeah, i think im just going to go ahead and buy that dvd for starters.

    First, I wouldn't buy one on eBay, as you don't know if it is a legit disc or not. It could have been tampered with, and malware preloaded.

    Second, what is the point of putting so much time and effort (and money) into buying a disc you can't use? I'm trying to find the logic, but I'm failing miserably. You'd need to get a DVD drive in order to use the disc, correct? So what's the point? If you insist on having the disc for some strange reason, then get a burner and make one yourself. That way, in the rare event you would need to use it, you actually have a drive to use the disc. if you don't want to buy a DVD drive, then there's absolutely no reason to obtain the disc. The USB drive will work just the same (only faster), and you can easily recreate one if you happen to misplace or break the flash drive. Common sense!

    Exactly, this makes no sense, and as said countless times, a waste of time, money and bandwidth.

    Actually not everyone, all I need is an 10 iso file but like many have said already the usb way is still the most common sense way

    Actually, the bare minimum you need is the MCT. In fact I have all the old MCT's from 10240 up to 1709. All of them up to and including the MCT for 1607 still make the ISO for the build they were released for. So if I ever need a 1511 iso for, say, FR-FR or EN-CA I can make one.

    All that ended with the 1703 MCT - it checks first, says there's a new version and tells you to download it

    This has likely already been mentioned multiple times, I skimmed over some posts, but what ever you buy, even if its from Microsoft, will be out of date in 6 months or less. Total waist of money IMHO. Major build updates are happening about twice a year. You will have to clean install, then do a major update to the latest build. For that matter, the official Microsoft thumb drive you have now is very likely out of date. I'd keep that for my backup emergency use media. It's read only and can't be updated. And just create a new thumb drive with the current release. Just reuse that thumb drive, rewriting it each time a new build is released. You'll only have two thumb drives max at any one time. Optical media as mentioned is slow, and easily damaged. The MCT will if you want create 32 / 64 bit install media, you chose which to use, and have all the editions you'll likely ever need.

    I got windows 10 on my usb memory stick, but im thinking about getting a windows 10 installation disc in case the memory stick should break or stop working for whatever reason.. what do you guys think?
    I think it is clear - everyone thinks it is a bad idea and you should use the ISO distribution method MS recommend and put it on a USB. If you want you could burn it to DVD - buying an external burner would be cheaper than buying a second license just to get the disk.

    If you insist on buying a DVD you'll either buy something pointlessly expensive ($100 for a second license from Microsoft when you already presumably have one) or a dodgy rip off from ebay containing who knows what. Even if you go this route it will be outdated in 2 weeks when we get the next upgrade.

    If you want to do it anyway then by all means do - it is up to you - but no-one will say it is a good idea, because, quite simply, it isn't.

    Actually all the stores including Microsoft don't usually carry the latest windows 10 versions . They usually have the latest prior versions from the latest and you're right in time those also will be outdated . Plain and simple its best just to use MS site download the latest and installed on a flash drive ...
