Packaged great and DVD is spotless and worked perfectly.
We're finally retiring our 2008 R2 boxes and this makes for a nice upgrade. The layout is very similar to 2016. Don't forget to select the correct package during install (Desktop Experience) or you might think the familiar GUI tools are missing.
I'm not an IT expert or anything, more of a guru/enthusiast. Upgraded from an old box running 2012 R2 Essentials so that is where I'm coming from for this review. I'm using the server to run Jira, Confluence, Jenkins, Perforce, IIS, and MySQL. Also using it as a domain controller, DHCP and DNS server, and network file storage. I have had no problems with any of those things. The UI certainly feels better than 2012's and is more akin to Windows 10. I'm not using the UI daily or anything but when I need to remote desktop into it it is nice that it feels familiar and doesn't have the jenkyness of the Windows 8 interface that 2012 did. Overall I'm happy with it. I don't think it's really doing anything that I couldn't have done with 2012 R2, but it feels good to have the latest version of Windows installed.
Easy ordering and quick shipping.
Got the product really quick and solved my problem. Easy to use and the product key easy to find in the package.
