Yes there was. There were huge (tangible) benefits for even the most hardened techophobe.
As far as I can see this just offers a better picture. Most of it is a case of the emperor's new clothes for techies who only know the advantages of one format over another because they know how the format works. I mean some of the claims on here of a higher bitrate or menus that aren't pre-encoded being of any interest to joe public are truly hilarious.
As far as I'm concerned, we're now in to audiophile and videophile territory. Good luck with your 'superb' picture!
