Also, 1080p24 uses 20% LESS bandwidth than 1080i. 1080p60 uses double what's needed for 1080i so is the worst case scenario. Deep color requires additional bandwidth (up to double) but I don't think any devices are taking advantage of it yet.
You are right they are more expensive. But it beat the overpriced Monster cable as well as some others.
I use 1080p/60 when viewing regular DVDs with no issues as well. Which the 5K does a great job of upconverting.
