RE: Is anyone actually buying 4K Blu rays like this one?

You need xvYCC enabled on the player and tv to get the expanded gamut, I believe. They are also better transfers, for instance the mastered for 4k ghost busters is  higher bitrate than the standard bluray, so should look better even without the colour gamut thing.

i have glory,angels & demons and Godzilla on the remastered 4k blu rays and they look stunning .not worth the double dip if you already own them on blu ray tho.

As long as the compression/BD encoding has been done properly the features mastered in 4K will look better than any feature mastered in 2K for the very reason there is more information in the first place but of course that means more compression. 2K films look worse on DVD not just because the resolution is lower but because the video is more compressed. as the same HD content is used for Both DVD and BD just encoded differently.
