I tested chapter 16 from X-Men Apocalypse and went back and forth a few times (annoying). I don't have HDR and am limited 8 Bit 4:2:0 on my 4K projector. My hope is that Oppo really goes to work on Strip Metadata, cause it's hit or miss on most movies I've tested. The Magnificent 7 looks terrible with Strip activated.
If time permits, I will try to take some screenshots with my DSLR. For now, I lean towards Oppo for cost, remote, build quality and sex appeal in my AV rack.
Just out of curiosity, what is the make and model of your projector?
With current firmware, the Strip Metadata is still a work in progress on the Oppo.
When you do have to use it, you will need to set brightness in the player to +8, or a similar compensation in your display.
The crushed black levels in that setting should be fixed with a future firmware update,
but if you currently use the feature, it won't look right unless you compensate for the lower black levels.
I just viewed Mag7 recently too, and I think the PQ of that movie just isn't very good overall.
It's not horrible, but it's not even close to reference level for UHD Blu-ray.
