There's more discussion in the Oppo forum, but here's my take. It looks good, but not hugely different (at least not yet). I finished the Westworld S1 set in HDR10 last week. Popped in the DV version and skipped around a bit to get a taste. Not really a huge difference. That disc isn't a reference quality item, but
right after I finished the HDR10 set, I started season two on 1080p SDR streaming. That's where you appreciate the difference... wow, SDR sucks. Sampled Dark Tower and watched all of Last Jedi.
I happen to live in an area with Dolby Cinemas everywhere, so I've seen a bunch of new DV movies exactly as they're supposed to look. Fast & Furious 8 in Dolby looks kinda drab. I haven't watched my disc copy yet, but if you're expecting to be wowed, you won't be. A Quiet Place is also pretty drab. Now, Guardians, Deadpool2, Infinity War, that's where you get the pizzaz. What I'm seeing so far is accurate
, not amazing. I remember reading tons of complaints about Last Jedi being too dark -- it's not on the Z9D. It looks like it should, though I didn't see it in theaters. Everything about the image looks great.
I think I'll watch the awful, most recent Transformers movie next. That should push DV limits.
