The HEVC codec with its high bit rates peaking above 100Mbps for some movie scenes, appears to produce a 5-10% better picture quality on the 1080P Pioneer plasmas when compared to standard 1080P Blu-ray discs that have lower video bit rates.
I bought an Oppo UDP-203 one year ago, and Dolby Vision UHDs look fantastic, but HDR10 discs have weird purple artifacting (purple fringing).
I thought it was going to die last year, as the PQ seemed off (weak black levels), but after doing a factory reset, it was all well again. An absolutely amazing piece of equipment.
I think I will buy an LG C9 65inch this year though, as I simply want a bigger screen.
