Ignore the bad reviews. This product hasn't come out yet and most of the time when doing the promo picture companies will use a metalpak or other such thing to show the item before actually having it produced.
Until the item ships out and we see it in-hand we can't say it's not a steelbook. And considering its right in the title it's darned sure probably going to be one.

Less important stuff first.
The packaging is okay. It's not great...but it's not awful either. It's functional. I don't think it is as good as you would expect for an £80 box-set.
Physical extras...same comment as above really. The foldout sheet is okay...doesn't really add anything and you wouldn't miss it if it wasn't there. I would have expected either more or nothing at all. As it is it it sort of sits in the middle and leaves me feeling very much like "why did they even bother"?
The films themselves...
Well this is awkward. Are the films better than their previous blu-ray counterparts?
There is grain. Not to the extent of being obtrusive (I normally hate grain) but somehow I didn't think it looked very filmic either. It seemed to me to be a bit inconsistent, so even though it wasn't obtrusive it was occasionally all the more jarring as a result.
The image itself is sometimes very, very soft and it does not look like 4K. There are a few scenes that are great but nothing that wowed me. That's not the disc itself though...it's just how the original film was shot.
The colours are better and more natural (which has to be a good thing), but in some ways the over the top saturation of the previous versions gives a more comic book feel that seems to suit the tone of the film overall.
The sound is again something that was certainly up to the task and I didn't really find any fault with it.
The answer then has to be yes. Overall it's better than the previous blu-ray version The sound is better. The image is better. The colours are a lot better.
It's not a showcase presentation though. Nothing about it is good enough to allow you to show off the films.
Other films of the same age have had much better quality 4K releases (Alien for example).
So fans will buy this at full price and probably not feel too cheated.
Anyone else though can probably wait until the price drops a bit. Or a lot.
This set probably is the best that the films have ever looked, it's just not an essential 4K upgrade and at £80 I think it's asking too much for what you get.
Only Crystal Skull 4K has no such issues, however I am surprised by this, for cost of £80 I expected perfection and this is not it, I intend to take up the issue with Paramount Home Entertainment to resolve the matter.
Hopefully I will get a result, if the discs are at fault then Paramount will have to replace the faulty discs.
Until the matter is resolved, I will reserve judgement on this entire collection...watch this space.
All 3 of the original films look the best they have ever looked, with some of the scenes looking incredible, with distant details really clear (e.g. the bridge scene in Temple). There is a fair amount of grain in some scenes, but for me that gives it a natural feel for a film of this age. Some of the scenes are also soft focus, but again, that is almost certainly a natural artefact of the original footage, rather than the transfer.
Then there is the Atmos soundtrack. Again fully remastered for this release and wow, what a difference. The soundstage is all encompassing and whilst I currently don't have height speakers (hoping to add soon), it films the room even without them. The effects whizz around the room and there is a real clarity in the soundtrack (hearing details I haven't heard before).
All in all, the original trilogy look and sound amazing. Being a huge fan of the original trilogy, I can happily say I am super happy with this release. I haven't worked my way through the special features yet, although I have read some reviews that suggest there isn't anything new here, when it comes to that. But then for me, this was all about the films, which look and sound great.
I should also own up to not having watched the fourth installment, not sure if I will or not, but unlikely some of the early reviewers, I wasn't going to let it's inclusion stop me from enjoying some of the best films ever made in 4k glory...
